True Blood’s new Forsaken beauty collection is here early! HSN put the lineup—including body cream, body veil, candle, diffusers, nail polishes (one is scented!), and a fragrance—up for pre-sale on its Facebook page today, one day before it launches on HSN and HSN.com. Even True Blood cast member Kristin Bauer van Straten—also known as sexy vampire Pam—is excited to get her hands on the Deborah Lippmann portion of the offering, like the lacquer named “Let It Bleed” and the manicurist’s first-ever lipstick, “Bite Me.” “I love the colors,” she told InStyle.com. “It’s an animal-friendly, sexy line, which are two things that women like. Of course, it’s very Pam.” Click through the gallery to preview the entire Forsaken assortment, available on facebook.com/hsn for $25 to $60.
True Blood aired last night! And while the drama rages on between Sookie (Anna Paquin) and her main boys, Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skargard), we can’t help but get distracted by one little thing: Pam’s (Kristin Bauer van Straten) super-sexy costuming. “You get the script, and you have these pretty great scenes—these crazy scenes and dialogue—and then the wardrobe fitting feels like Christmas,” Bauer van Straten told InStyle.com at the launch of HSN’s TB-inspired Forsaken Beauty Collection. “[Costume designer] Audrey Fisher is amazing. She brings in a rack of that stuff and I email her and go, ‘What do you think we’re going to do—what direction?’” According to Bauer van Straten, there are only two options: “Sexy or sexier. You don’t do a lot of breathing during the day, but it’s fun!” Considering how devilish her character can be, we bet it is!

With a new episode of True Blood airing tonight, do you ever find yourself wondering if Pam’s getting a love interest? Kristin Bauer van Straten, the actress who plays the no-nonsense immortal with fangs, is asking the same thing. “I’m curious as to why I haven’t had a love interest, I’m really wondering,” she told InStyle.com at the launch party for Forsaken, the new beauty collection by HBO and HSN. “I’ve had a love interest off-screen, where I sort of did something I can’t say in a PG interview on top of a desk.” That said, she hinted her fictional love life will move more in front of the camera soon. “But, I’m looking forward to having a love interest and I’m looking forward to seeing who can capture Pam’s eye,” she said. “I suspect that she will be a she.” Just like the books—but maybe better! Tune in to catch a new episode of True Blood, airing tonight at 9 p.m. on HBO.
