It's hard to be a teenager these days, especially when you have a crummy boyfriend like that.

4A teen murder suspect claims to be a vampire and part werewolf
An 18-year-old Florida girl accused of helping lure a 16-year-old boy into a fatal trap says she's a vampire who has drunk the blood of her boyfriend. Stephanie Pistey confirmed assertions by police in Parker, Fla., that the people involved in the murder of 16-year-old Jacob Hendershot were in a vampire cult. Pistey, who was arrested and charged with accessory to murder, said she sees herself as a modern day Dracula.
"Since I was like 12 every fiber in my body, basically everything, I know this is going to be crazy, but I believe that I'm a vampire and part werewolf."
Police initially believed the boy was lured to a home and beaten to death because Pistey accused him of raping her. Now it is unclear what the motive was. She denied drinking Hendershot's blood, but says she has drunk the blood of her fiancé and co-defendant William Chase, 25. She said she expects to spend her life in prison.
5A hand model got $300 for lending her hands to the $400million franchise and is now looking for recogntion
Kimbra Hickey is a hand model, and her hands grace the cover of the novel Twilight. She earned $300 for the photo. After seeing so many people attached to the franchise rise in fame and fortune, Hickey would like to get a piece of the action. “I see people reading it on the subway, and I say, ‘Those are my hands! I'm a hand model!' ” she explained. “I'm sure they think I'm crazy — a crazy lady on the subway.”
The good-natured Hickey sometimes hangs out near the cash register at the Barnes & Noble near her Greenwich Village apartment to spread the word. Surprised customers sometimes ask her for her autograph or to trace the outline of her hand on the book jacket.She even carries around a Gala apple in her purse at times so she can recreate the pose for people.
Hickey's agent, Danielle Korwin, said her hands are in demand because they are “veinless” — not the sort of hands a vampire would like.

8Carolina Herrera is commercializing the wedding dress she designed for Bella Swan
Just days after the premiere of "Twilight: Breaking Dawn," Twi-hards can buy their very own replica of Bella Swan's wedding gown for just $799 through Alfred Angelo. According to The Wall Street Journal's "On the Runway" blog, wedding retailer Alfred Angelo has been working with Carolina Herrera -- who designed the original for the movie -- in secret to make sure that the dress would be available shortly after the premiere. Even the process of shipping the dress to stores was reportedly done in secret.
Considering Herrera has said that the actual dress took about six months to make, it makes sense that there are a few differences between the original and this $799 replica. While the original was rendered in silk, for example, this dress is made of liquid satin. The lace is similar, but not exact. But will die-hard "Twilight" fans really care enough not to snap up the dress?
