Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley have always had a close friendship.In fact, Nina made quite the effort to celebrate Paul’s birthday right after she broke up with her ex-boyfriend Ian Somerhalder back in 2013.
Still, many fans can’t help but wonder if they will ever come out as a couple.
Tell us, do you think Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev are more than just friends?
The first season focused on Paul being left in charge of the kids after Cate takes a full-time job as a nurse, with comedic emphasis on his often strict rules concerning his daughters and dating.
The series' name and premise were derived from the book 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter: And Other Tips from a Beleaguered Father (Not That Any of Them Work) by W. While 8 Simple Rules was renewed for a second season and production had begun, Ritter's sudden death in September 2003 left the series in an uncertain position.
After three seasons, ABC cancelled 8 Simple Rules in May 2005 due to low ratings.
The third season (after Ritter's death) took a creative turn, revolving more around cousin C. (David Spade) and grandfather Jim (James Garner), than the immediate Hennessy family, more specifically not revolving around the raising of the Hennessy girls.Crew members took him to a nearby hospital, Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, where he was misdiagnosed as having a heart attack and as a result, his condition had worsened when physicians later diagnosed him with an aortic dissection, and he died that evening at the age of 54.Following Ritter's death, ABC announced that 8 Simple Rules would continue after a hiatus, and would incorporate the death of his character.This was the same time Paul announced his divorce from his ex-wife Torrey De Vitto.A lot of viewers have also pointed out that Paul and Nina have a lot of on-screen chemistry on ‘The Vampire Diaries.’ Plus, Nina has made it no secret that one of the reasons why she was excited to return to ‘The Vampire Diaries’ was so she could work with Paul again.Nina is yet to confirm or deny the rumors, with many fans speculating that she might be hiding something.
