We're all for the latest vampire craze (seriously, you've gotta watch The Vampire Diaries!), but this is ridiculous.
Seregon O'Dassey, a self-proclaimed actual vampire, has been given her own series. It airs on Comcast On Demand's Paranormal TV Channel and is titled Vampires Revealed.
O'Dassey explained her unique situation in an interview with Time Out New York.
She said she doesn't drink real blood, in case you were wondering:
"Not on a regular basis. It really kinda depends on what I'm feeling at the moment. I would say maybe two, three times a month. It's never public; it's not like people think. I don't have a craving and grab a random person. If my boyfriend cuts himself in the kitchen, or if I really want something, I'll ask my boyfriend. Or I have a little blade so I can make little nicks in myself. Nothing bad, it's completely safe, not even a permanent scar."
As for the Manhattan vampire scene? It's "not really a tight-knit community," she says, adding:
"I would say it's more segregated, in that you have more than one court, you have a myriad of houses or orders. And New Jersey is rather small, tight-knit."
While O'Dassey says "I’m a True Blood fan," she also warns people against believing what they see on shows.
"[Vampire series are] not meant to be a representative of this community. People can get the wrong idea; you should learn more about something before you become a part of it. Read a lot about psychology and energy and anything that has to do with the vampire culture, and filter it within yourself."
We're not making any of this up. At least not the interview part. Read it in full at the Time Out New York site.
