Yikes! I was almost too busy daydreaming about what could be the greatest bromantic tag team since Top Gun's Maverick and Goose to notice that Ian Somerhalder's ex Nina Dobrev swooped in for her rebound man.
The Vampire Diaries actress was recently spotted sharing dinner with Mark Salling, a la Lady & the Tramp style (mmm pasta!) and friends this week in Chicago. The "pals" were in town for the 2013 Lollapalooza Festival.

I know Mark Salling brought back the Mohawk for a hot sec as Glee's resident wild child, but really. There's no competition between Puck vs. Damon. He's a vampire … sex and lust just oozes from each fang.
I know, I know. They're real people and have real lives and I need to stop forgetting that.
Hopefully, Nina and Mark are "just friends" and keep it at a little rebound action. She's going to need a little more ammo if she wants to win the 'Who upraded?' game with Ian. Not that I'm saying that's what's going on … but if it is, I can't wait to watch the fireworks. (SocialiteLife)
