Joe Manganiello Says Chris Rock Gives Good Advice

Posted by Lynnpd On March - 25 - 2012

True Blood’s Joe Manganiello told New York Daily News that Chris Rock gave him sound career and marital advice when the two were starring in “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.”

Chris was the one who talked me into doing ‘Magic Mike,’” Manganiello revealed at the Duracell “Rely on Copper to Go for the Gold” Olympics program at Stage 37 on Wednesday. The actor plays a male stripper in the Steven Soderbergh-directed film, but initially was unsure about taking the part, telling Rock: “I think guys are gonna hate me if I do it.

“Chris said, ‘Motherf—er, they’re gonna hate you anyway. You might as well work with Steven Soderbergh,’ ” Manganiello recalled, adding that the funnyman also told him: “Before you get married, get the Porsche or the Porsche equivalent.” According to Manganiello, Rock’s reasoning was that he should “set the standard” before getting hitched.

As we reported earlier in the week, True Blood’s Joe Manganiello came out to support Team USA and celebrate the kick off of Duracell’s “Rely on Copper to Go for the Gold” Olympic Games launch event, New York City, March 21, 2012.

While at this event, Joe talked about his character of Alcide in the two videos about his part being expanded for Season 5.

Joe Manganiello at Duracell’s Olympic Games Program

Posted by Lynnpd On March - 22 - 2012

True Blood’s Joe Manganiello came out to support Team USA and celebrate the kick off of Duracell’s “Rely on Copper to Go for the Gold” Olympic Games launch event, New York City, March 21, 2012.

In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment at this event the reporter asked Joe about his future relationships and he said, “I am single, if the right situation happens, sure [I’d settle down. I want to be married and with kids some day, so, that's definitely something where it would have to be the right situation.”

However, Yahoo says that Joe isn’t rushing to find his future wife and will instead take his time choosing his perfect lifetime partner.

While he waits, Joe is thoroughly enjoying his bachelorhood.

[Dating’s] fun,” he gushed. “I think it’s exciting.”

Joe and Claire

We’re happy to announce the start of the auction of three very special items for a wonderful cause that is very close to Joe Manganiello’s heart.

Claire’s Place Foundation, Inc.

Claire Wineland is an extraordinary young lady who has Cystic Fibrosis, but the disease most definitely doesn’t have her. Through the Claire’s Place Foundation she is committed to raise awareness and help others who are affected by this disease.

Visit the Claire’s Place Foundation website for more information or to make a donation.

Make sure you also check out our post about the recent fundraiser event for the foundation that Joe attended.






For Claire’s Place Foundation, Inc The Vault auctions off:


A Team Acide t-shirt and knickers (aka bootie shorts) signed by Joe Manganiello.

With a very appropriate “howl” written on the back of the shorts.


A first edition of Anne Rice’s latest book ‘The Wolf Gift’ signed by Anne Rice.

Ms. Rice donated the book especially for this charity auction.


Visit the auction listing and place your bid:

The auction ends on March 4.


It is no secret that the grand lady of the supernatural genre, Anne Rice is a huge fan of True Blood. Ms Rice was therefore thrilled to meet True Blood werewolf Joe Manganiello last week at the Los Angeles signing party for her new book ‘The Wolf Gift’.

When I saw the photo of Ms Rice on the arm of Joe, I got an idea.

A couple of weeks ago my co-admin Lynn attended a fundraiser event for the Claire’s Place Foundation, a cause that is close to Joe’s heart. Joe is friends with the father of Claire, a 14 year girl who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis.

Lynn and I were touched by the way Claire handles her condition and is committed to raise awareness and help others who are affected by this disease. We started planning an auction to benefit the Claire’s Place Foundation of two Team Alcide items that Joe signed for us previously.

The recent book signing gave me the idea to ask Ms Rice to support this fundraiser by adding a signed copy of ‘The Wolf Gift’ to the auction. I was thrilled beyond words when I received a positive answer to my email within literally 10 minutes of sending it, the signed book was shipped to us the very same day. Thank you so much Ms Rice!

The auction of ‘The Wolf Gift’ signed by Anne Rice and a Team Alcide t-shirt and shorts signed by Joe Manganiello will go live this Sunday February 26. The eBay link will be posted right here on The Vault.
