I do alot of cut and pasting of other people's comments into some of my updates, so you'll see more opinions and observations than "just mine" below. I'll talk about the "fake photo" conspiracy theory thing - ALL of it, ha! That's why this post is so long - it BEGINS "the day after" (7/25/12) and goes until roughly the middle of December.
I am TIRED of being accused of "not REALLY caring about you girls - just my own obsessive agenda"; so I'm inserting this up here at the top. This is an email I sent to Stephenie's website-guard-dog-brother, Seth in AUGUST.
I know you don't forward anything to Stephenie, but I just want to make sure people in her camp are aware of some of the EXTREME reactions Twihards are having - and MAY continue to have in INCREASING ways if someone doesn't address these people with some sort of nice, simple little gesture of support. You and/or some of them may have noticed my HOT blog out here debunking The Twilight Saga several different ways, but I've called a TRUCE on this subject just to help out with these Twihards. But, of course, they aren't listening to ME.
They NEED to hear from your Sister - nothing heavy, nothing that takes anyone's side - just something that acknowledges their intense pain and gives them a few soothing, reassuring words of support.
I'm REALLY worried about some of them... Especially little girls who were no-doubt buried TOO deeply in their obsessions. Basically, I'm worried about stuff like this HEATING up even MORE: http://crushable.com/
PLEASE... You don't have to pass this email on, just give her a call and make her aware.
Okay, Ladies... THIS is why this blog was CREATED, and this is WHY you NEED to start LISTENING to me, PLEASE...
I KNOW you all keep insisting that you're FINE in your obsessions EVEN after this stupid PR scandal that blew so many Twihard hearts to smithereens.
But AFTER the LAST update I did below... I was speckled in email in the SAME WAY I was at the BEGINNING of all this (starting on 7/25 "the day after") from YOUNG GIRLS who were/are DIEHARD Kristen/Robert supporters (for the most part) who are STILL struggling with their INTENSE obsessions surrounding Kristen and Robert.
I haven't been receiving anything from them for the past few weeks since the big "Robsten reunion" happened. And while I was pretty sure they were still being jerked around by Hollywood gossip mag BS, *I* was less worried about these Twihards for obvious reasons. I actually SHIFTED my message on this blog toward the MEAN GIRLS out there because I thought THEY were really the only ones who needed to be "reached" anymore.
However, if these last emails are any indication, that ISN'T the case... These girls ARE STILL being jerked around by their obsessions by these rags with every DAMN article that talks about "whether or not Robert seemed to be interested enough in Kristen the last time they were seen together" OR "where are they moving after BDp2 comes out - Australia or England?" OR "is this REALLY a publicity stunt Kristen or Robert are playing on us?"... You get the idea.
If YOU were a young girl who was OBSESSED with your favorite actor & actress in your favorite fairytale AND there were DAILY NEGATIVE articles being posted about them CONSTANTLY - HOW WOULD YOU BE FEELING RIGHT NOW?!
When WE were their age, trying to follow a celebrity scandal was MUCH DIFFERENT. We didn't have instant access to information at our fingertips via the Internet like THEY do NOW - sometimes it was WEEKS before we got to read about the next Hollywood rumor! (Can you imagine, ha!)
They're CONSTANTLY being bombarded - and I know you're trying to keep them from it (and I HOPE none of them are being punished because of their TEMPORARY semi-insanity that IS NOT THEIR FAULT) - but they're OBSESSED and SO ARE their FRIENDS - they're hearing stuff from EVERYWHERE.
The FEELINGS of these girls ARE REAL - even IF their obsessions are NOT!!
Think of it as FEELING like you're going through a REAL heart break FOR THE FIRST TIME - BUT, the person who broke your heart just took off and you know NOTHING about why they left OR IF they're ever going to come back; BUT you're hearing ALL KIND OF RUMORS about that person ONE WAY OR ANOTHER from supposed "vague sources close to that person" that JERK your heart around.
YOU ARE NOT CRAZY OR NUTS, GIRLS!! Absolutely every single email I have received from these girls mention "feeling like they're crazy" or they're being "told they need help". "Please tell me I'm not NUTS" is another one...
Ladies... HOW can YOU be MISSING all this stuff?!! I HAVE to assume that you ARE missing all this somehow, because I have a really hard time believing that you JUST DON'T CARE.
If this is NEWS to you, maybe you should talk seriously to your girls - I have a feeling that they're making light of it "to you" because everyone has ALWAYS told them being obsessed is FINE (it IS, usually!); and most of them are feeling pretty SILLY when they are asking me - a complete stranger - some of their very tenderhearted questions.
MAYBE they aren't talking to you - check in with them! Also, KEEP in mind that not EVERY young Twihard has a SANE mom or adult to help her navigate through this right now. *I* feel REALLY SORRY for the daughters of THESE TwiMOMS!
*I* would LOVE to be able to indirectly (OR direcly) BASH BACK at these damn papsmears OVER "The Franchise", even - but, they're covered by some obscure TWIST in one of our MOST CHERISHED amendments.
But even if THAT doesn't happen (admittedly, they would PROBABLY get RICHER over this dust up - but NONE of you seems to be AT ALL concerned about HOW they make their dirty money!) the franchise DESERVES to be held accountable for all this PAIN, anyway!
Here's some comments out here that sound JUST like the stuff I'm hearing in email. If I can find them elsewhere, they AREN'T unique!!
...Whom ever is behind all this fantasy and mystery created around Robert and Kristen is pure genius and pure evil. I of course consider myself a fan and should I remind all of you that fans can make a movie great or make it blunder. That is the answer to Robert's question, of course we would like to know about their personal lives, we would like to know if they're doing fine. This is called show business! You can easily lie about it, or just be polite and answer everything is fine. It's simple. But to slam a question like that - both Kristen and Robert is a lack of respect to the young and the eldest followers of you guys. It's arrogant and selfish.You need to come to terms with the fact that you owe your fans some respect. This has been a very hard and hurtful ride, meaning the last few months with all the drama...
Oh my GAAWWWD!!! That was such a beautifully written article! I went through almost entire box of Kleenex™ reading that. And then "Waking up from a dream can feel like that" had me sobbing uncontrollably! My co-workers think I'm a nut sitting in my cubicle bawling but they just don't understand what I've been going through these past few weeks. What a terrible, heart-wrenching rollar coaster ride this has been! I can't wait to get home to watch the films again. (At least once a night; it's a rule!) Thank you SOOOO much, Joal, for compiling this for us all! These two are definitely soul mates and no amount of youthful indiscretion will ever tear them apart and if anyone dares to suggest otherwise, I will curse them and their children and their children's children!!!!!
How old are you? are you kidding? why are you crying over the lives of 2 people you don't know even know? you don't know that they are soul mates you don't know them - stop projecting your fantasies onto strangers and live your own life.
YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND!!! I think YOU are the one who needs to get a life!!! Everyone knows these two belong together and it's a beautiful thing! How old are YOU to be coming on here and attacking a stranger like some school yard bully?? Go post on ESPN or Fox News if you just want to feel big about yourself! You are a COWARD. Just leave them and their fans alone, jerkface!!!
Who stole all the romance from your soul. They're a bit young to be that jaded. Don't you think? It's a cold view to take but you do realize you've just described two people who are perfect for each other don't you?
Please! please! let this end. enough already.five years of this is 4 years and 11 months to long!! kristen and robs childish behavior over their relationship is getting ridiculous! it was fun for about a month now its just sad. admit it or say no just stop!
You are expecting Rob and Kristen to take you as seriously as you take them.Sorry, it's not going to happen. Kristen may need a few months of charm and etiquette school in your estimation. But she doesn't have to take what you think into consideration. She is her own person and not subject to our whims and dictates. She entertains us for two hours per movie, roughly. That she lingers in your mind much longer does not make her your friend that you can give well meaning but unsolicited critical advice to.
Enough of the Rupert n Kristen pics already.. really??.. let them be.. I love Roberts response when ask about Kristen and himself, he said, " if I tell you then its not personal anymore" .. man i cant think of the interview i saw that on.. anyone know? (Yeah, I believe it was on the Today Show the day AFTER Kristen was on - so, YESTERDAY, ha!)
It was a fun week for me, a proud Twilight fan. So Rob and Kristen are an existential extension of ourselves. I'm not quite sure what that means but it sounds right.
Love the TWILIGHT SAGA Book, love the MOVIES and most of all I LOVE the cast! true twihard fan!!! and oh yeah I love HBG too! Eat your heart out haters! coz Robsten ROCKs!
I may add to this... I'm getting more emails from YOUNG girls, these sound like mostly older girls above. NOT that it makes much difference, but WHY should these young (or older!) girls be SWIRLING around in this emotional turmoil when they SHOULDN'T HAVE TO?!!
I want to talk about Kristen's recent interview on The Today Show Wednesday (11/7) where she makes this comment in regards to her relationship status with Robert, "I'm just going to let people watch whatever little movie they would like to think our lives are and go for it. "Keep 'em guessing, I always say."
If you all read down to the VERY BEGINNING of this looooong post about this Twilight publicity scandal (In fact, here's that "beginning"); you'll see that *I* have done NOTHING but defend Kristen's privacy rights AND her right to keep things "just between her and Robert".
HOWEVER... Things are a LITTLE different, now...
No, I REALLY do NOT think YOU should have to say anything STILL, Kristen... But SINCE Stephenie never said anything to help COOL Twihard emotions while all this was coming down, YOU are really the ONLY person who CAN POSSIBLY throw a little water on this fire. (I realize you're probably not feeling the fire quite so much anymore - but MANY girls out here still ARE.
And sorry, Robert... Even though you've said PLENTY towards this issue, and thanks for that!! You're TOO DAMN NICE, LoL! MANY Twihards DON'T BELIEVE YOU. Your comments are EASY for "Haters" - as they are known - to brush off. ;)
You KNOW what people are SAYING, Kristen - AND you know WHY they're saying it. For the MOST part, yeah - it's NONE of their DAMN business. BUT MANY of your fans are either OVERLY-loving you OR overly-DESPISING you (and/or Robert) right now BECAUSE of how these Hollywood gossip machines work.
And it is no more THE FANS fault that they work this way than it is your's - basically hunting for every opportunity to take either you and/or Robert down WHILE manipulating the HEARTSTRINGS of your FANS while they wonder, worry, OBSESS and cry over you.
Here's a portion of JUST ONE email I've received that doesn't expose "too much" of someone's pain: "Thank you for writing that wonderful blog..it was heaven sent. ...Please someone tell him. He just texted me and said he told my mom..and for me to get some help..and bye..please tell him..everyone is doing this and its killing me..but everybody acts like they dont know what im talking about..I think I may have never needed anything so bad in all of my life than for somebody to tell him..I know they are trying to drive me crazy..and its starting to work... thanks again, was truly a blessing I needed to read..very much so :)"
And even these MEAN GIRLS... Absolutely NO ONE MEANT to become OVERLY-obsessed with you/Bella, Robert/Edward and/or your REAL lives.
YOU feel better now, Robert feels better now, Summit feels better now... What about your FANS who were UNWILLINGLY FORCED to go through this WITH you from a maddening DISTANCE? Here's what the loyal ones are still saying, and even though this hasn't been updated in awhile - they are the MAJORITY out here now for obvious reasons.
After all, when you made that public apology, you dragged the rest of your fans into a CHAOTIC PR STORM by doing it - and it has been damn near impossible for us to ignore all this stuff.
You're right, many people won't believe what you'll say anyway AND the rags will do their jobs and twist your words into whatever THEY want them to MEAN...
But if there is ONE THING I have learned about YOUR DIEHARD FANS throughout these three months, it's that THEY will BELIEVE anything you say!! They'll CRY over it, insert it into VIDEOS, and basically treat it as if it was the WORD from the MOUTH of BELLA!!
And really... They're the ONLY fans you really care about, I would think... (AND "they" have ALWAYS BEEN the ones this ENTIRE BLOG was CONCERNED ABOUT - whether they think they needed anyone to be concerned about them or not, ha!)
They're WORRIED, and these papsmears are STILL jerking their HEARTS around because of stuff like this and this. I totally get HATING these Hollywood interviewers and "journalists" for their utter lack of integrity among OTHER things - BUT it has been PAINFUL for your FANS who LOVE you, and it's PAINFUL for them STILL.
No details are necessary - but maybe some sort of vague and yet clear enough "confirmation" of WHAT is going on with you two would HELP some of THEIR obsessive static to dissipate.
I KNOW you're tight-lipped, but *I* found it awfully amusing for someone who is usually SO quiet about her personal relationship to be SO descriptive for Vogue UK earlier this year... You TEASE people who are obsessed with you with stuff like this, girl - it just adds coal to the fire for them, ha!
NOT that you OWE anyone ANY explanations OUT HERE; But maybe next time someone asks you that question NICELY... You might throw these TRU-TWIHARDS who LOVE you no matter WHAT a little bone. ;)
By playing Edward, which turned out to be the role of a lifetime, Rob says “I lost what I cherished the most: my freedom. Some told me that it’s the price for success. I’m sorry to disagree but I feel like it’s a price too high to pay.”
11/9/12: Washington Post Interview with Robert Pattinson
Some people have been critical of whether your personal lives are being used to market the “Twilight” movies, in particular your relationship with Kristen. What is your response to that?
Pattinson: Being critical of?
You know, people saying “Their romantic relationship is being used as a marketing tool for the film.”
Pattinson: [Pauses, then laughs] For one thing, it would be a terrible marketing tool, and it’s not utilized very well at all. People will say anything. I’m still amazed that people even believe anything [that’s said about us]. I mean, it’s one of the craziest things about the whole situation, where you can see the whole — is paradigm the right word? — of celebrity gossip, celebrity culture type stuff that’s literally entirely made up. There’s a story line. You have a set character and your story line is written for you. And it doesn’t matter what you do. I talked to Reese Witherspoon about it a while ago, and she was the person who really told me, you get given a character. I mean, I’ve literally tried to do things to throw people off, and it just doesn’t get printed.
10/22/12: During Rob's press junket in Australia to promote the release of Breaking Dawn: Part 2: “...it’s hard because people have kind of made this media culture…people have kind of made this assumption that anything is fair game, but it’s really kind of not. It’s just impossible to fight against. Half the time, what people are doing is entirely illegal, and you just can’t do anything about it. It’s a weird sort of thing.”
While promoting in Australia... when asked if he felt the media spotlight had affected his love life the British hunk admitted, “it depends on the person you fell in love with”.
When asked if 'love' could be changed by fame he said. “I haven’t really thought about that. I don’t think it’s changed that much. I don’t think the way you see it changes much. You make your decisions, and it depends on the person you fall in love with anyway.” he told Mexican magazine 15 a 20.
Some have claimed his readiness to forgive Kristen shows that Rob is a "walk over" and the actor admits he's sensitive to people's opinions.
He claimed: “I react to certain things because I’m too sensitive and I never want to offend anybody.
“I find it fascinating when there’s someone who’s not afraid to express their views out loud, not caring what other people say.”
Though added that “knowing himself” made it easier to forgive others: “Sometimes it’s easier to be more sensitive because you’re more aware of what you’re thinking.”
DAMN, is he not a SWEETHEART?! YES, of COURSE we're ALL FORGIVABLE!!
8/15/12: Rob Interview on Good Morning America during Cospmopolis Press Tour
- or not.
This is Robert being ATTACKED by "professional" Paparazzi. THIS is what these two actors have had to DEAL WITH for the past fivish YEARS - in an ABNORMALLY, unusual HIGH-volume way - BECAUSE neither Hollywood NOR the WORLD has ANY respect for them OR us Twilight Fans, and they NEVER HAVE! (Incidentally, since the poll on the other blog I'll let you know... Twihards are responding to the "they are MORE harassed in Hollywood than anyone else" in the MAJORITY - However, MANY Twihards feel that they get paid PLENTY to forfeit their freedom.)
What IS it LIKE to be Kristen Stewart or Robert Pattinson? This YouTube video was made by a DIEHARD Kristen supporter after all this came down. The end WILL make you NOSTALGIC and maybe even CRY. ;)
Sorry Ladies, I'm going to go OFF on a Kristen Stewart tangent BECAUSE some of you are still VERY ANGRY with her, and others of you are now OVERLY-ecstatic because of the big "Robsten Reunion" - and NEITHER Twilight Fan is in good head space AT ALL!
Kristen/Robert resenters will likely CONTINUE to feel almost PERPETUAL internal static until it EVENTUALLY fades away (yeah, COUNT ON your anger lasting SEVERAL MONTHS, depending - trust me on this one, Ladies - obsessed ANGER takes ALOT longer to disapate); and OTHER girls who were obsessed with Robert & Kristen as an "unbreakable couple" are LIKELY burying themselves EVEN DEEPER into those obsessions, now - NOT good!
MOST Twihards who were overly-obsessed have been partially KNOCKED out of their intense Twilight obsessions thanks to Hollywood's PapSmears, and ALL have been in pain at times because of it - and SOME people ARE STILL in pain. They literally RUINED this pretty story for MANY people YA and older ones! Does it MATTER that they MIGHT be in the MINORITY? Not dealing with these intense obsessions has the potential to make them worse BEFORE they get better!
Doesn't it seem like they are being even MORE HOUNDED than before?!
Here is the VIDEO of them ESCAPING LAST NIGHT!!
A continuation of my Kristen tangent above - turning UP the HEAT.
Here's a DISTURBING THOUGHT for YOU... Suppose Kristen and Robert ARE actually back together and things WORK OUT. You know what eventually comes next - BABIES!! What the HELL are these gossip rags going to DO to THEM?!
These GOSSIP RAGS P*SSED all over our FAVORITE FAIRYTALE, our FAVORITE ACTOR & ACTRESS, and TWILIGHT FANS - young AND older, no matter WHAT way YOUR emotional pendulum is swinging... JUST because they CAN, and then they LAUGH and roll around in their PILES of MONEY while YOUNG (and older!), over-OBSESSED Twihards CRY!!
But SINCE the PapSmears are obviously COVERED by some OBSCURE TWIST in one of our MOST CHERISHED Constitutional Amendments - we'll NEVER be able to change the way Hollywood treats our celebrity KINGS and QUEENS, will we Ladies?
Maybe we can approach things from a DIFFERENT direction... From OUR OBSESSIONS.

They look pretty real to me - and those pink flowers are in the background through the trees on all those photos AND with the angle of the camera those flowered bushes WOULD BE BEHIND that tree and you would see those flowers through the leaves. And the height differences - they are standing on uneven ground... Hmmm... Perhaps if the person who created this video would explain what's going on a little better. :)
This video does reveal that it COULD be possible for these photos to have been manipulated - HOWEVER, the REASON why they might have been manipulated is my question...
The person who put this video together obviously believes that Rupert and his wife outright INVENTED this entire situation from SCRATCH just to pull this stunt - admittedly, NOT impossible, just improbable. For someone to do something THIS blatantly underhanded and obvious, you would THINK SOMEONE would have moved on this accusation by now - WHY haven't they?
AND, Kristen did come out with that public apology...
Did someone manipulate these photos to make it look like Kristen and Rupert were doing something wrong; OR were they manipulated to KEEP things from looking AS BAD as they could have originally been shown? We see NOTHING seriously incriminating with her face, but things are certainly IMPLIED - and yeah, ALOT of people thought they looked pretty fake from DAY ONE.
*I* thought she looked like she didn't want him near her, LoL! Sorry, Kristen just does not scream out VIXEN to me in these photos - it has always seemed to me like she might have been TRYING to "keep things outside"? I've been in that position, haven't we ALL... Just "trying to keep things outside", LoL! Of course I COULD be wrong... ;)
BUT IF you believe these photos were tampered with... just because that might have been done, doesn't necessarily mean that KRISTEN or Robert were in on this fake. If ANYTHING, the gossip rags (perhaps with help from Summit PR since they couldn't control the leak) did this JUST SO THAT the photos don't look "too bad" so that it will be easier for us all to forgive Kristen before BDp2 comes out next month. EVERYONE wants BDp2 to make money - in Hollywood it WILL spill over!
The evil gossip rags still get to tell their MONEYMAKING story and the big blockbuster movie still gets to make BOATLOADS of BUCKS!
We Twihards are OBVIOUSLY being manipulated JUST like we have ALWAYS been since The Twilight Saga became a HIT - and they have ALWAYS USED Kristen and/or Robert to accomplish this.
But if you're wondering WHY Kristen, Robert or Summit MIGHT NOT be saying anything to CORRECT our perspective on these maybe-TAMPERED with images, this is probably why. They ARE real, they've just been manipulated so that marketing/PR folks can manipulate US easier.
We Twihards would have been FAR angrier with Kristen and it would have been FAR more difficult for Summit to continue making as much money as they need/want to off of Breaking Dawn if we REALLY KNEW just how naughty Kristen was maybe being, LoL! ;) (Oh, for Heaven's Sake - of COURSE I'd still LOVE her - and SO SHOULD YOU! ;)

Btw, I am well-aware of the more recent images captured of them KISSING supposedly in the PRIVACY of Kristen's place. I'm SO MAD at THAT invasion of privacy, I could just KICK someone, ha! (And NOW, those pics were FAKE! Is anyone else getting the impression that we're being JERKED around MORE?!)
I have to admit that I actually feel RELIEF seeing it - BUT it is also mixed in with a bunch of suspicion because almost EVERYTHING in Hollywood is a fantasy to us - intentional or otherwise, ha!
You'll see various opinions in other people's comments below... But *I* don't see Robert as looking "bored" or "not wanting to be there with Kristen"; and IF he IS "mad-looking", it seems to me he might be annoyed with knowing there is someone pointing a camera at him - LOOKING at them gives them their money shot - KRISTEN, LoL! ;)
Robert seems kind of content to me... but I'm not so sure... They were supposedly good friends to begin with. I think they are able to look perfectly fine in just about any setting - especially since they are ALSO actors - and REALLY be just fine with each other even after all this, whether they are actually back together romantically or not.
Almost EVERYTHING - including our own REAL LIVES is nothing more than "what we believe" it to be in our heads. Is this photo real or are Kristen and Robert putting on a show for us?
Does it matter?
Here's a mix of both good and bad comments from today (10/16) about this apparent rumor confirmation:
Even now on this ********* media coverage you still still need to slam the girl. what you think you are rob's type or something. obviously not. y'all don't know anything. you make rob and kristen look like angels compared to your hatred and slandering of both of them. y'all need to shut the **** up and realize you are pushing them to the limit of breakage. no one human being could take such bullying. so you best be careful on the karma switch. its coming to each of your households. crazy idiots! none of this is your **** business.
Why is it the cheated responsibility to defend the cheater??? She was gutsy enough to cheat...in public...with a married father of 2...so she should be gutsy enough to defend herself, instead of using Rob to save face -- and that includes that "statement" that, let's be honest, was fake as h&%$#! And she now caressing Rob in public, because she knows they are being photographed by the papz...Oh, G-d, I.am.going.to.puuuuuke!
What Rob & Kristen do is their reality. If you cannot accept that, neither of them care. The rest of us want them to be happy.
Fastest way of getting the press off their backs? He almost looked embarrassed to be there, why not man up and publicly say, "Okay, we all know she cheated on me, but if I can forgive her, so should you." I also read an article on TMZ that seems to be indicating that the ET exclusive was a set-up and 52% out of 45,000 votes agreed with them. So which is it? Bla!
10 years from now there will still be people insisting that they are in a PR relationship. None of this whole scandal makes sense from what is known, but PR least of all. Kristen's apology was a PR nightmare that obviously happened because she placed her relationship with Rob ahead of her career. Otherwise, leave people confused and let the storm blow over. Who thinks that she would have given up Cali and perhaps SWATH2 for a PR relationship?
I agree. I get so sick of people calling everything PR. I don't even see Rob as being the kind of guy to try to capitalize from an awful breakup. If he was hurt enough to break up with her there wouldn't be enough money or promotion in the world to pretend to be back together. Things may still be shaky between them or maybe the cameras caught him at awkward moments but together just for PR? lol,tell me another fairy tale.
Pattinson can officially kiss his career goodbye. He has got to be the biggest joke in Hollywood at the moment. Yikes...
The power of love is way too strong 4 these two.
PRsten make me sick. Why don't they just stop with the trying to convince fandom they are together. The ET video looked staged Rob looked happier with his arm around the blonde at the start of the video. They look as misrable together as they ever did. ROB YOU SOLD OUT...spent weeks cultivating the image of a single man to one week before promos you try to convince us the reconciliation is real....You lost a million fans today. You need to put a stop to this belittling ******** now before your fans put an end to your career. Lost all respect for allowing yourself to be used by Screwpurt and scummit :/
You need to grow up. If he lost a million fans then they were never really fans. You must not have had alot of respect for him in the first place if your gonna turn yor back that quickly.
So over this PR ***** counting the days until the prem so that this will all be over and they can fade into obscurity. Sick of those two playing these games with fandom. Thought you had more self respect than this Rob, obviously not. You're nearly as pathetic as she is...
Publicity stunt. How else are you going to get all the Twihards to forgive her if Rob doesn't?
I don't believe the reconciliation is true but if it is I am proud of both. They are young, rich and famous and could have said the **** with it and throw it all away. These two worked hard for what they got and put up with a lot which probably led to the mess. If they are together I am glad they did not allow an intruder destroy what they have together. Good for them, and let's hope the tabloids and the fans give them their privacy and treat them like humans.. These are nice young people who deserve it.
We'll explore THIS subject a little more in the 10/6 update below... Btw, if you're all SO MAD at The Franchise (which is EXACTLY who you should be mad at) - SIGN the PETITION to hold these "professional" companies accountable for CAUSING all these hard feelings and manipulating us Twihards like this. It would be good for the WORLD's SOUL. ;)
Update 10/6/12 - Topic Du Jour is... DID Kristen and/or Robert and/or SUMMIT set up this PR Stunt? Hmmm...
This is coming up today from article comments "out there". I forgot to grab one, but apparently some OVERLY-obsessed Twihards are trying to convince us all that this situation JUST HAS to have been set up and APPROVED by BOTH Kristen AND Robert - because they appear to be getting back together now. And apparently, it is pretty UNBELIEVABLE to some Twihards that Robert would take Kristen BACK UNLESS this IS a publicity stunt.
This can't POSSIBLY be REAL LIFE captured in a wonky, RANDOM moment, RIGHT Ladies? Everything is working out SO smoothly... No, it really isn't. I'm sure some Summit marketing people are putting in some long hours...
I don't get why so many of you are so convinced that these two set this situation up just to put on this money-making show for you. It wouldn't make THEM money - just the gossip rags, that's why the photos came from THEM. Neither Kristen NOR Robert are FANS of the paparazzi. These two professional actors have had to deal with those incessant flies since Twilight became a hit!
Sure, Summit is no-doubt involved in helping to keep things as smooth as possible so that BDp2 still brings in the moolah. That's WHY you don't see anything "too incriminating" in Kristen's photos - they've no-doubt been HAND PICKED (maybe with the HELP of people from Summit since they couldn't control the leak?) - because EVERYONE wants to see BD make money. In Hollywood, it will spill over! (Honestly, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if we don't get to see ALL of these images in all their glory sometime AFTER BDp2 comes out.)
But, it is HIGHLY unlikely that Kristen and/or Robert allowed their lives to be staged like this.
1) It doesn't sound like EITHER one of them - NEITHER has ever seemed to give a rats butt about the spotlight and in fact, do EVERYTHING they can to shy away from it. The public apology Kristen made had NOTHING but the sound of a desperate girl's voice behind it.
2) Summit NOR Kristen NOR Robert NEEDED ANY of "this kind" of press. Breaking Dawn was ON TRACK to make kazillions just like ALL the other Twilight movies. A PR Stunt like this comes from DESPERATE people - and NO ONE at Summit is desperately wanting $$$ over this movie!!
PLUS, it's TOO MUCH of a RISK... Twilight isn't JUST ANY movie, they ALL KNOW how ridiculously obsessed MOST of you ARE. I'm sure they were/are VERY worried when this Hollywood HOOPLA all came down - but probably a little less now that time has gone by. (*Whew!* GOOD JOB Summit Marketing & PR Pros - take a breather, you've no doubt earned it, LoL!)
AND... Summit is SPLITTING the famed three up for the BDp2 promo tours instead of keeping them together. I assure you, SUMMIT would have MUCH RATHER kept them together more because it makes for MUCH BETTER publicity.
They USUALLY send them out two by two, and *I* would have THOUGHT that they would have POUNDED the WORLD with Bella, Edward and Jacob since this is the LAST BIG SHOW... But they're probably sending them out in SINGLES (with a couple "duals" thrown it to make it seem perfectly normal) so that it doesn't seem quite so weird that the main characters are in the spotlight ALONE.
This situation has probably put some serious KINKS in Summit's marketing and promotion plans. (Btw, here's some BRILLIANT MARKETING by Summit - and YES this IS a compliment, I know it's hard for you to tell sometimes, ha - TONIGHT, Nov 1, the famed three are FINALLY appearing together - NOT in front of a crowd of fans for the first time, but in front of a popular MTV audience that has ALWAYS reached it's CORE fanbase AND treated them RIGHT in interviews - THANKS, JOSH!!)
And it has been AFTER this interview that we have started seeing them together - all three!! ;)
3) The entire situation is PERFECTLY PLAUSIBLE - Rupert and Kristen had been photographed together in previous, seemingly-questionable situations. AND young girl, older handsome boss - yeah, TOTAL cliche and BELIEVABLE.
4) Being caught in a "momentary indiscretion" IS different than carrying on an affair. And IF Robert and Kristen are ACTUALLY together, she MUST have convinced him of something. Despite what I've heard MANY of you say, CHEATING is NOT an unforgivable sin (EVEN if it's "all the way") NOR is it the WORST thing anyone can do to you. (No, I've never cheated on anyone before; but I've sure as HELL been tempted, I've been cheated on - AND I've been that "other young girl" a few times back in the day before I realized there was only ONE reason some handsome, older, MARRIED guy was whispering sweet nothings in my ear!)
5) EVEN IF either one OR BOTH of them DID help setup this scandal... Could you REALLY BLAME THEM? Why would anyone DO something so extreme like this to UPEND their lives? Surely they KNEW how you Twihards were going to respond. Kristen was PREPARED to bury herself - surrounded by a SHIELD of family & friends for awhile, no-doubt. Neither one needs the MONEY. But PERHAPS (and this is a VERY thin perhaps) they came up with it as a way to separate themselves from Twilight fan obsessions - kind of like an ESCAPE.
That's thin because it doesn't make sense... They KNOW how crazy we Twihards ARE. I'm SURE Kristen did not pop up out here for weeks because she knows how hateful and judgemental SOME of you ARE and have ALWAYS been regarding her role in Twilight AND as Robert's girlfriend. They wouldn't have done this on PURPOSE to themselves UNLESS there was a REALLY GOOD REASON for doing so!!
WHATEVER is going on... I hope Robert and Kristen aren't letting all this chaos effect their decisions. This is the PERFECT time for them to re-assess what they might have had and figure out if it's worth it for them to save their relationship or let it morph into something else. And even if the romance does eventually end... It doesn't mean that they can't still be BFFs!
All this is OBVIOUSLY a publicity stunt but not necessarily one Kristen, Robert and CERTAINLY NOT ANY of their Twilight FANS volunteered for. Hollywood did this JUST to cause them PAIN so they could make money off the TEARS of YOUNG GIRLS. This is how leeches like the gossip rags make their money off of Hollywood HITS like Twilight AND our Celebrity KINGS and QUEENS we still worship like the STARS above!! ;)

Here's Robert, Taylor and the Breaking Dawn Cast at MTV's
Video Music Awards Thursday Night with a New Clip!
THIS is a RECENT article from Nico Lang on Huffington Post about WHY the PUBLIC SHAMING of Kristen MATTERS to YOUNG GIRLS (although I personally do NOT agree with him on his obvious dislike of Cosmopolis, ha!). He makes ALOT of really good points.
This article (dated 9/20) is called "Kristen Stewart is a Trampire" written by Yana Tallon-Hicks at The Valley Advocate. This is pretty much Nico's argument, but from a MUCH more feministic perspective, ha!
It may SEEM like I am going off on a tangent at first with this update - but, I'm really not. There is a VERY GOOD point at the end of this. ;)

SECOND: Kristen & Robert's SPIN Around the GAME of LIFE WHEEL
And NOW - The SHOWSTOPPER of the YEAR
GOD, am I the ONLY ONE who wants this SH*T to CHANGE?!
Maybe this is useful... I am OBVIOUSLY someone who was FAR more into Princess Diana than I EVER was with Twilight, except she was a REAL PERSON (as opposed to an actor I fell in love with through a character in a movie) with a REAL FAMILY who I watched as a girl from when the VERY FIRST PapSmear images of her started to surface. The one where she is standing innocently holding a child in the sun so you can see through her white dress comes to mind off the top of my head. (AND, I THINK she purposefully POSED for that picture WHILE she was AT WORK at the DAYCARE she worked at - JUST SO the Paps would LEAVE THEM ALL ALONE!) It was just plain 'ol MEAN of them to do that to her. I thought so then and I do even moreso now, of course.
We all followed her life and watched it swing from gloriously glowing to heartbreaking angst - and THEN, just when it looked like she was starting to look a little happy again - GONE!
I think I cried for three days almost straight... I was married at the time and my husband could not figure out what my problem was, ha! Whether she wanted to be or not, BECAUSE of the way she was portrayed by Worldwide media - she essentially BECAME another one of *my* "Kristen Stewarts".
Many of you probably think that I'm being overly-melodramatic with this entire blog and this loooooooong Robert & Kristen post. But *I* REALLY AM WORRIED about Kristen... Jeez, it seems to me that her LIFE is probably in danger - and it kind of always has been with the way the paps swarm around her and Robert LIKE they DID with Princess Diana!
But beyond that, HOW MANY "Kathy Bates" type fans does she have out here now - BEYOND those she ALREADY HAD - because of our INTENSE obsessions surrounding Twilight BEFORE this EVER happened?
I can imagine that the thought of stepping back out here into the world is pretty damn scary right now for Kristen. Not just for the obvious reasons that these gossip rags keep reminding us of OVER and OVER again STILL! But WHO KNOWS what will happen?!
I am about as HEARTBROKEN as I can possibly be right now... I can't STOP the tears! I keep seeing William and Harry in my mind walking behind Princess Diana's casket; and I'm pretty sure I could not be more upset.
I BET this is how ALOT of you felt - or at least close - when you heard about Kristen and Robert. (You'll find *my* reaction to their situation below if you keep reading - it wasn't NEARLY as intense, but I STILL FELT it.) They FEEL REAL to us WHETHER they actually ARE to us or NOT.
And while feelings REALLY ARE things that come and go like a soft, warm breeze or raging thunderstorms that pass us by - they ARE REAL EMOTIONS INSIDE OF US, and they can either HELP or HURT like HELL!
If we didn't all already have so damn much real life bullsh*t to deal with as it is; maybe all this WOULD be just a silly, laughable little escape. But, for people like me - it's excruciating.
8/14/12 - This is a link to a Time Entertainment article interviewing David & Robert at the Cosmopolis Premiere in NY. Here's Rob's perspective on the fans view of him.
DC: "Before we wrap up — forgive me for this, Robert, but I have to ask: What is it like to have millions of people worrying about you and hoping you’re O.K.?
RP: I guess if people think they’re worried about you, it’s sweet. It’s kind of odd.
DC: They’re reacting to what they think they know, but they don’t know. And they have a huge investment in so many lives that they aren’t connected with at all. Talk about a disconnect.
RP: But at the same time, the world is a pretty cruel place, so whatever inspires people to suddenly feel this kindness, hopefully they’ll look at themselves and they’ll look at their own lives and realize, [awestruck, Eureka-moment voice] “I have the ability to — to empathize with people!”
DC: “My ability to empathize with a total stranger has helped me empathize with people I actually know!”
RP: “Hey, I’ve learned something!”
I MEAN REALLY... Can you IMAGINE things from his OR Kristen's perspective on ANYTHING?! WHO should you be angry with right now, Twihards? Here's another article from the Wall Street Journal on Rob's perspective. Sounds to me like Robert is a little turned off by us... GEE, do you think it could have ANYTHING to do with WHY the Paps are SO interested in imposing chaos into his life at will because OF US/our OBSESSIONS?!
You've been nothing but a trooper through everything Rob. THANK YOU SO MUCH for putting up with us CRAZY Twihards for so long. And Kristen... I don't know what you're made of, girl. But if this was *me*, I don't think I'd even WANT to be an actress anymore. I HOPE we haven't sent YOU over the edge. :)
Hang in there, everyone! With any luck we won't lose ANYBODY, LoL! If it seems like I'm TRYING to piss everyone off now (as opposed to the beginning of this looooooong posting), I am!
Enough time has gone by now, and since I've received absolutely NO response from ANYONE... Be pissed at me, I don't care. I'm just gonna keep talking... If you're pissed at me, your brain is swirling about something you SHOULD be thinking about. I CAN'T be on the only grown-up OUT here. It would be REALLY SCARY if that were true - because *I* have the emotional fortitude of a 13 year old - in case you haven't noticed, ha!
This link ISN'T actual news but it DOES make VERY clear just HOW HARD some fans are taking this. Keep an eye on your friends, Twihards! SOME of them NEED some extra support. And YES... SEE HOW Hollywood is MAKING PILES of MONEY off YOUR incredibly FUNNY pain!
And JEEZ... PLEASE IGNORE the stories that are NOW coming out about Robert possibly taking Kristen back! They can't POSSIBLY KNOW THAT, and IF things turn out the other way - you'll just feel WORSE about all this. TRY to keep things in perspective, Twilighters! DON'T let them MILK your HEART for PENNIES!
EVEN IF Robert DOES take Kristen back - still TRY to keep things in perspective. You've (at least) been a little dislodged and/or shifted within your obsession. It is MUCH EASIER for you to work your way OUT of this obsession now... And, it's time, Twihards. ;)
Also... NOTICE that the articles coming out now are starting to be NICER about them, and how "Kristen has been punished enough" and we should all give her a break and feel sorry for her.
Hollywood doesn't mind taking people down & out for brief periods of time - but they aren't stupid enough to actually ELIMINATE someone who brings in this much COLD, HARD CASH! If they know what they're doing... They'll have all you Twihards eating out of the palm of their hand again by the time Breaking Dawn Part 2 comes out, no matter what happens between Kristen & Robert.
They weren't worried about LOSING any money over any of your tantrums. In Hollywood, ALL publicity is GOOD publicity - if you watched The Runaways you KNOW this. THAT's why this happened.
You know, as smooth as this whole thing has gone down for both Hollywood AND The Twilight Franchise AND/OR the Snow White STUDIO (not US) - it REALLY DOES make you wonder if some ambitious marketing team from the studios didn't help orchestrate this LIVE real-life play - especially with Summit and Stephenie being so QUIET about all this... They don't even seem a LITTLE concerned about ANYTHING, much less their FANS. (That exclusive from EW with the comment from Bill Condon CHIDING US for OUR insanity doesn't count.)
While I really don't think Kristen or Robert would go out of their way to upend their lives like this, in many ways it DOES help both of their careers AND Breaking Dawn AND every movie they have coming out after this. And, knowledge is POWER... If someone (JEEZ, even one of their AGENTS) suspected Kristen (or Robert) of anything juicy; relaying information and having that exposed at JUST the right time IN THE RIGHT WAY (with PLENTY of TIME between NOW and when the movies COMES OUT for all of this STUPIDITY to BLOW OVER!) would be GOOD for them AND Breaking Dawn in the end, RIGHT?!
I'm not accusing anyone of anything... Just try to keep things in perspective, Twihards. The ONLY sure thing is that SOME decision-making marketing person in Hollywood DID this JUST to CAUSE YOU PAIN (not Kristen or Robert, that's just a BONUS - because JUST causing them individual pain wouldn't make anyone any money).
I've done so much reading (and writing) about the subject of Twilight that I'm utterly and completely burnt out on it. The really strange thing for me is that I just HAPPENED to realize that I had run out of steam JUST before this whole Kristen/Robert whirlwind started.
In fact, here is a link to what was SUPPOSED to be MY LAST post on this blog!
I spent the first day of this happening completely oblivious to what was going on - SIMPLY because for that ONE day I didn't check in here at all. I wasn't watching TV, I wasn't reading the news - JUST because I wanted a few DAYS in a row without the word TWILIGHT irritating me. I felt like I had finally moved on, and I felt a huge sense of relief - for ONE day!
YEAH, I'm REALLY MAD about all this, LoL! I already spent a year spinning through my own various obsessions about this subject, and then THIS! I could NOT be angrier - I'm SO ANGRY it's FUNNY! I feel like I'm going to bust out into uncontrollable giggling ANY moment now!
The world doesn't care about you Twihards as demonstrated by their lifebashing ways.
When I read the first headline late Wednesday night after this happened (it was at the TOP of a general/National news site, HARD to MISS) - I literally had to reread the title of the article because I was SURE I had read it wrong. "Kristen Stewart Cheats on Robert Pattinson with Snow White and the Huntsman Director - Issues Public Apology".
My first reaction was UTTER disbelief - the real kind. I was sure at that point, that this was JUST ANOTHER stupid Hollywood gossip story they had made up about them. But then the "apology" part started to sink in... And of course, after reading the article there was NO DOUBT what Kristen had been caught doing. But there were no pictures I could see, yet...
I WAS mad at Kristen at first for two things (although I was MUCH angrier with RUPERT) - 1) OMG, she seriously f*cked up and BROKE Rob's heart in a betrayal that probably feels an awful lot like one of those heavy cartoon safes falling on you and crushing you FLAT to the ground. And 2) I thought, "HOW could she get caught like that?! She's GOT to be one of the MOST photographed people in the world - well swarmed by Paparazzi - How could SHE be so careless and indiscreet - unless she was TRYING to get caught, ha!"
And then LATER, when those images DID start to pop up - it didn't look like she and Rupert had been caught in a cozy embrace in some dark corner at some restaurant or bar or at some Hollywood party - it looked to ME like someone had taken them from a distance... And THEN later, the Paparazzi who took the photos bragged in an interview how they WAITED for her, STALKED her and eventually STUNNED her RIGHT in the HEART...
And really, isn't it EXTRA neat to be able to STUN Rob like this, too - and then LAUGH and celebrate and roll around in your PILES of money while you WATCH all their Twilight Fans CRY...
THAT's when I did an about-face.
I thought, "Oh, NO you jerks DIDN'T... TELL ME you didn't HUNT her down like a CRIMINAL or some ANIMAL, KNOWING the EFFECT this kind of story would have - NOT ONLY on Kristen & Robert - but on MILLIONS of Twilight Fans, MANY of whom you KNOW are YOUNG girls who ARE - to varying degrees - OBSESSED about these two actors in their favorite fairytale!
Hollywood is like outer space... It's FILLED with ALL KINDS of amazing, fascinating, incredibly beautiful things to inspire you and take your breath away. It can also be a SUPERMASSIVE BLACK HOLE.
I understand that these "professional" paparazzi didn't do ANYTHING at ALL wrong within the precious LAWS of the Good 'ol US of A... That DOESN'T mean they HAVE to be such LIFEBASHING mercenaries! They can STILL have the KIND of integrity that CHOOSES NOT to HURT PEOPLE - especially young girls EN MASSE!
And while I can appreciate Bill Condon's recent and MUCH NEEDED comments (more would be NICE, franchise - especially from STEPHENIE) about this situation this week - REMINDING US of OUR obsessive tendencies and to respect these two actors...
I just want to throw the reminder BACK at THEM... YOUR FANS are OBSESSED with your silly saga for REASONS that ARE THE (preventable) FAULT of the ENTIRE Twilight Franchise STARTING with the BOOK company who ALLOWED this "saga" to be published SO ADDICTIVELY TOWARD YOUNG, IMPRESSIONABLE GIRLS to begin with.
Stephenie Meyer and ALL of her "professional" Twilight Handlers have ALWAYS BLAMED the FANS for their outrageous obsessions over this story throughout the years...
NO, Steph... YOU did this, and OUR REACTIONS are the RESULT of you and your cronies IGNORING all this stuff (see sidelinks) for YEARS. As your most RECENTLY debunked and NEWLY engaged AND enraged TWIHARD, you can COUNT on me making SURE people keep THIS nugget of YOUR involvement in perspective.
As far as HOLLYWOOD goes... it IS a place in California but it is ALSO an abstract, worldwide beast spread out around the planet. It's this "beast" that *I* am so angry with right now... Because they KNOW all of this and they find it SO FUNNY that SUCH a STUPID, SILLY series could become SO POPULAR. But SINCE Twilight has made them SO MUCH MONEY they can't NOT include it in their cannon of successes. But they can SURE as HELL make fun of it AND us FANS who are SO IN LOVE with it. THAT'S WHY they torture Kristen & Robert LIKE THEY ALWAYS HAVE - because we're FUNNY and PROFITABLE when our emotions are spinning!
While my opinion may seem pretty HOT to you, I want to clarify one thing... I've changed the title of this blog, but the subject matter and previous posts will stay put. However, I am NO LONGER promoting it as being an Anti-Twilight resource. I'm CALLING a TRUCE. NONE of this matters, anymore.
If that puzzles you... Think of me as maybe being a little like Rosalie... I may be a b*tch, but I "don't have a PROBLEM with your choice of GROOM"!
DANG, I'm KINDA glad I actually watched Part 1 now... Thanks, Nikki Reed - I've always LOVED Rosalie! :)
The truce is because this blog comes up toward the TOP of many keyword search variations about Twilight - you're going to continue to stumble across this whether you should or not. And I have absolutely NO DESIRE to irritate any of you any further. However, I will warn you that my updates and this post can get heated at times. My apologies, my own emotions get in the way every once in awhile. I'm pretty sure I could not be angrier about all this.
But MUCH MORE IMPORTANTLY... I really do NOT think you all realize what just happened with many people (inside) because of this situation. Some Twihards, like our beloved Emma, reacted HOT and quick - but many OTHER people will hold it inside because they may be too embarrassed to admit their INTENSE emotions to anyone, and possibly EVEN themselves for awhile.
Just keep your eyes on your friends, Twihards... If they're looking "a little blue", ASSUME they are "a lot blue" for awhile. I know you all keep insisting that you're fine in your Twilight obsessions. That is kind of the thing that can be dangerous with them - for MOST people they ARE Okay, so it's EASY to miss people who are not.
*I* WAS one of "those kinds" of people... If you have ANY DOUBTS at ALL about JUST how susceptible SOME people are about falling into addictions like this TOO DEEPLY in their minds... Just GLANCE at my blog. It's an OVERLY long-winded, desperate SCREAM from someone who was spinning in emotional CHAOS for AT LEAST a YEAR for entirely different reasons. AND the REALLY SCARY THING IS, TWIHARDS...
*I* WAS NOT nearly as obsessed as SOME of you out there are... BECAUSE I didn't come into Twilight through the books. I've been all-kinds of different levels of obsessed with things throughout my life, but I've NEVER been debunked before. (THUS this BLOG, it was *my* outlet coming out of *my* Twilight obsession. DO NOT read it now unless you're curious - it is NO MORE HEALTHY for you to read now than it is for you to be reading all these silly gossip articles TRYING to make you crazy.) While I may not be spinning "like you" - I KNOW what SOME of you MUST BE going through right now.
You NEED to listen to me, Twilight Family...
PLEASE believe me when I say, obsessions are NOT easy for everyone to control, THAT'S why they can be harmful. And SOMETIMES intense, internal reactions sneak up on us AFTER we're sure we've got a grip - sometimes long after (I certainly did NOT expect to be spinning about this for a year, but I was also doing things to KEEP my obsession going for SOME (and several) strange reasons - YOU don't have to flail that long, ha!). They can really become emotionally overwhelming for some of us if we aren't prepared for them.
Yeah, *I* worry about your HEARTS, especially you young girls... But not just them. :)
Those of you Twihards who are talking about boycotting Breaking Dawn Part 2... While *I* would LOVE for you to become SO involved in such a collective demonstration against this franchise, you'd be doing it for THE WRONG REASON.
There's TIME between then and now... Twilight ISN'T any different NOW than it was a couple of days ago before this shocking news came out (I CAN'T believe I'm sticking UP for it like this, ha!). It really IS NOT COOL (or GOOD for your HEART) for you NOW to toss Twilight under the bus JUST because REAL LIFE isn't going your way.
Even so many of us estranged Twihards didn't do that when it was US spinning around like you are NOW in 2008/2009. (Yes, I'm a Twilight MOVIE Fan, but I sort of bump myself into their dispersed ranks because apparently I am the ONLY defunct movie fan, ha!)
I KNOW you're MAD and it's HARD... But you ALSO LOVE this story AND these characters AND THESE actors for a reason.
They're FAMILY... We don't just excommunicate each other because we f*ck up every once in awhile for WHATEVER reason. That is specifically WHY this blog has NEVER called for the HEAD of Stephenie Meyer on a Silver Platter! We're ALL HUMAN... We do dumb stuff, it's Human Nature.
Sometimes those dumb things are forgiven and sometimes they are not. And sometimes it isn't the right thing for us to forgive OR be forgiven... Whatever happens, it ISN'T for US to say OR speculate in this case, Twihards.
Let's give them their space and privacy, and NOT make it profitable for a soulless Hollywood to CONTINUE to profit from their (and our!) pain. WE are the soul of Twilight - YOU had the imagination to insist that this beautiful fairytale be brought to life on the big screen. BOTH of these two dedicated actors who have devoted SO MUCH time to our beloved story DESERVE a break.
Maddening things like this can be an INCREDIBLE Re-Awakening for your soul when they are learned from. Just take a healthy dose of Esme's advice... let it go and let things work themselves out... And if they don't work out the way you want them to - that's Ok, too. It really is... That's LIFE.
The LATEST Relevant Highlights:
These are LINKS to what appears to ACTUALLY be going on.
Robert's whereabouts are UNKNOWN - he appeared to be in LONDON for awhile, and now he's supposedly in Olaj, CA at some Cowboy bar hanging at Reese's ranch. We may never know for sure where he is. ;)
BTW... If Kristen is really hanging out at some director's house it is HIGHLY UNLIKELY that she's engaging in some sordid 2nd affair. I DOUBT she's in the mood for hot, steamy sex right now! THIS story is just meant to KICK Kristen (and US) while she's down. THAT'S WHY we're shunning these Hollywood gossip rag publications - NONE of us needs to be kicked in the gut anymore!
Hollywood Paparazzi and the High Cost of Fame Article
Article Exerpt: "They were given a gift to act, sing, dance or make us laugh. Everyone has some type of God given talent. There are those who excel in the craft of building or banking, others excel in writing, directing traffic or protecting our community. We enjoy their talent and we pay them to perform for us - but they ARE people who are entitled to privacy, respect, and peace just like anyone else."
STALKING celebrities LIKE this: staking out their homes, peering through their fences and over the trees on their property, CHASING them down in their CARS, trapping them, cornering them, SCARING their kids and MAKING them CRY, going OUT of your WAY to dig up DIRT, spying on you as if you are a CRIMINAL, follow and try to talk to their friends, family, neighbors, co-workers into ratting them out... Is the WRONG way to treat ANYONE.
HOW this kind of behavior is CONDONED, PROTECTED and even CELEBRATED in our society NEEDS to be tinkered with.
I'm NOT saying Rob shouldn't have found out about Kristen's rendezvous. NO, but THIS is something that should (or MAYBE even should NOT) have been discovered and dealt with in it's own time, in it's own way - in PRIVATE.
We have NO IDEA what may or may not have eventually happened because of this issue between Robert and Kristen in PRIVATE. And they'll NEVER have the chance to know, now.
IF these "professional" paparazzi had captured these scenes of Kristen with Rupert acting like this backstage at some awards show, or at some Hollywood party, or EVEN just walking past them on the street and HAPPENED to notice them, etc - THAT would be different. BUT, they STAKED out her HOME, just WAITING for EITHER ONE of them to do something wrong - and who KNOWS how LONG they've been SPYING on them like that?!
It's NOT LIKE they are supposed to be Public Officials holding a Public Office in which the Public NEEDS to be knowledgeable of their personal moral CODES of conduct!
I am SO SICK of hearing about the Paparazzi being able to carry on like they do because THIS PART of their "jobs" is supposedly covered under the First Amendment, somehow (AS IF the beloved 1st means ANYTHING at ALL to ANY of THEM).
As an AMERICAN, I have NEVER been able to GRASP HOW this kind of an INVASION of PRIVACY and PERSONAL FREEDOMS translates to "anything goes" for celebrities JUST because WE LOVE THEM!
I have to admit... *I* was ALREADY somewhat worked up about this subject because of the recent HUGE Tom Cruise / Katie Holmes CHA*CHING campaign. While it's been awhile since I was a big Tom Cruise fan (sorry Tom), I STILL have a warm place for him in my heart - GOD, will we EVER get that "Risky Business" scene OR that singing duet scene in Top Gun OUT of our HEADS, ha!
My heart was breaking for him and Katie and Suri... DESPITE all the stupid Scientology speculation and AGAIN - article after ARTICLE from supposed "intimate sources to the couple" to KEEP us all WHIPPED UP so they could MILK and MARK the END of their MARRIAGE (which, it SEEMED was pretty happy at one point in time - they made alot of money off that, too JUST like they did with Kristen and Robert) with a BIG, MONEY-MAKING BANG!
ALL of this was WRONG, and a SENSELESS waste of time for ALL of us at the EXPENSE of Kristen and Robert AS WELL AS the REST of The Twilight Family. It was a BLATANT, MEAN ATTACK on their personal lives and freedoms - for money. And while I am well aware that we Humans currently place VERY LITTLE VALUE on emotional damage - because you CAN'T SEE it - only PHYSICAL stuff you can see really matters, RIGHT?!
Our HEARTS and SOULS are POINTLESS?! Have any of you HEARD ABOUT the Teenage SUICIDE rates in our country?!!!
WHY does the "Life, Liberty and the PURSUIT of HAPPINESS" part of the beloved Constitution NOT APPLY to Celebrities?!
You shouldn't BE SO PROUD of yourselves, FameFlyNet - now INFAMOUS for victoriously capturing Kristen's photos. You could all JUST as WELL be throwing back beer bongs and indulging in a Caligula ORGY while mounting her head on your trophy wall. I BET you have one of those...
You made young girls CRY and you didn't write ONE DAMN GOOD SONG LYRIC to DO IT! I am not impressed.
AND you KNOW these vultures ARE currently attempting to HUNT Rob & Kristen down JUST because whoever gets THE FIRST photos of EITHER one of them stepping back out into life gets EVEN MORE professional paparazzi kudos along with ANOTHER huge pile of money.
DESPITE your opinion of Kristen and this maddening situation... If you EVER LOVED TWILIGHT... Let's take care of our beloved actors AND each other!!
I'm starting to see some flack about this response being silly & stupid to some of you Twihards - but also from the non-Twihard crowd. MANY people are of the opinion that IF you are a major Hollywood celebrity making huge pots of gold; you are getting paid PLENTY to completely forfit your personal FREEDOM, your career, your private AND public LIFE, your first-born and every other little one after that to your selfish fans who pretty much consider you to be their well-paid indentured servant!
We TWILIGHT FANS can be DIFFERENT from every other kind of FAN out there!
NOBODY'S JOB description on this planet should include having to deal with STALKING photographers and/or undefined "sources" within gossip magazines whose JOB it is to look for every opportunity to take you down. Hollywood IS NOT supposed to be a WAR ZONE!
It USED to be a mysterious, exiting place that pumped out movies out of thin air like MAGIC. Now it's all about how much hype they can drum up and how much money they can make by doing that. These rags have ALWAYS ENJOYED messing with the heads and hearts of us Twihards by ATTACKING Kristen and/or Robert on their Hollywood whims - JUST because they CAN, and THEN they LAUGH and MAKE MONEY off of us when we react!
Hollywood has NEVER had ANY respect for The Twilight Saga beyond the pots of gold these movies have poured into it - BECAUSE of the dysfunctional, amateur storyline. YOU can thank Stephenie Meyer and her incompetant publishing company for THAT. (Here's my DETAILED post as to WHAT is wrong with The Twilight Saga. SAVE it for your info LATER - DON'T read it NOW while you're spinning!) You can ALSO give them credit for ALL THOSE times you Twihards have had to endure listening to people MAKE FUN of your favorite, BELOVED fairytale & characters.
As a RESULT... Hollywood has ALSO NEVER had ANY RESPECT for EITHER Kristen OR Robert because of that! But THAT's Ok, because they figured out how to USE them AND US like pawns in a game - twisting and spinning things to keep themselves relevant and rolling in PILES and PILES of money. WHY do you think they stalk these two people like this?
I can't think of ANYONE ELSE in Hollywood who has been more UNFAIRLY harassed than these two professional actors for years.
Because the harsh reality is... VERY FEW "professionals" in Hollywood OR around the world - certainly not ANY of them who actually control marketing - actually has ANY RESPECT for this franchise at all! They're all TWO-FACED jerks who probably tell Stephenie Meyer and her Twilight Handlers ONE thing, and treat Kristen and Robert like they SHOULD to their faces (because they ARE, after all, THE REIGNING KING & QUEEN) - because they all make them SO much money!
And THEN they turn around and MAKE FUN OF Robert and Kristen AND US TWIHARDS (because aren't we FUNNY and PROFITABLE when our emotions are SPINNING!) by jerking our HEARTS around while we WATCH them LEGALLY and outright TORMENT our favorite people - over and over and OVER again like cats with mice while they LAUGH, throw their parties and roll around in the HEAPS & MOUNDS of money they make off of it.
I am NOT suggesting that Kristen has done nothing wrong, JUST that this ISN'T about US even though it FEELS like it. I KNOW you're all MAD at Kristen, but we NEED to SHIFT blame where blame is DUE.
If you've never been through something like this before and you feel like you're spinning out of control, you NEED to keep reading... There IS some HELP / RELIEF for you below IF you read ALL the WAY to the END of this post. I can help because I am a freaking PROFESSIONAL at being OBSESSED with stuff like this (if there IS such a thing).
In FACT, *I* am ALSO still obsessed with Twilight but for entirely different reasons at this point - I LITERALLY wrapped up this blog DAYS before all this happened (the post previous to this was SUPPOSED to be my LAST one!). It was just going to stay up for whomever wanted to read about all this. It had REALLY seemed like SUCH a waste of time for me.
And it kind of was... I probably wrote it MORE for ME as out outlet as I was working my way out of my own maddening obsession with this story. You DO NOT need to read it - in fact, please don't unless you are an adult who is actually concerned about this subject. If your emotions are spinning ridiculously, forget about all this. It doesn't matter. It doesn't exist. (Unless I need to use it, Franchise!)
AND DON'T visit these HOLLYWOOD RAGS, watch their programs OR buy their magazines. In FACT, don't even do a SEARCH on this subject. If you need to hang with other Twihards for support then do so - you DON'T need to be out here reading about this subject. You're not getting the scoop by doing that anyway, you're ONLY being manipulated more!
I'll make you Twihards a deal... Since I am somewhat keeping tabs on these rag mags... The NEXT TIME they start posting Paparazzi photos of these two and/or there is any REAL NEWS that comes out of Hollywood regarding how our kids are doing - I WILL POST IT IN HERE so that your curosity doesn't have to overwhelm you; and you can still see/hear what's going on!
EVERY HIT these sites get from you is money in their pockets, although they have several different ways of making money off of you - AVOID THEM LIKE THE PLAGUE, Twihards! NO, we're NOT trying to "shut these places down" that isn't possible. We're just protecting ourselves and each other. It is a GOOD THING to do for Rob/Kristen and ALL of us Twihards!
Original Post 7/25/12
Ok Twihards... THIS IS a hard one...
NOW is the time for you to do something almost IMPOSSIBLE...
Some of you young girls especially, who have never gone through something like this before are deeply hurting and upset... HOW can something like this happen to your favorite people?! WHAT was Kristen thinking?! HOW could she DO THIS to our beloved Robert/Edward?!
*MY* question is for RUPERT... WHAT the HELL were YOU doing SEDUCING this young girl, for - You PISS ANT! I don't care that Kristen IS TECHNICALLY an adult now - YOUR actions are nothing but PATHETIC! There are no words... That's all I have to say to you.
And DAMN, could the paparazzi be ANYMORE IRRITATING with their incessant STALKING of these two people?! Although honestly, Kristen - WHY the public apology? It just seems to FEED into their machine PLUS it doesn't seem "like you" at all.
Maybe it's because you're an impatient Aries (I can relate, ha!) or maybe you were advised to do it in order to create some sort of public affect - I think it was a little inappropriate and distasteful, especially considering you've kept things so private up until now. It almost seems like you were TRYING to put a bullet through this thing. For goodness sake, GO BACK UNDERGROUND, GIRL! Since you decided to keep things so private all this time, THIS phase of your relationship doesn't belong out here, either. You have NOTHING to prove to any of US out here...
Twihards... Being faithful to a romantic partner is always the ideal thing... But unfortunately (and contrary to the ideal popular opinion), it OFTEN happens for ALOT of reasons. JUST because this happened DOESN'T mean that these two kids don't love each other. I would imagine that Hollywood is the HARDEST place to be faithful - especially with JERKS like RUPERT wandering around in it. (Here's another even BETTER article about that more recently (12/4) regarding comments made by yet ANOTHER one of *my* "Kristen Stewart's" STEVIE NICKS - love, love love her!!)
TRY not to be too judgmental... We ALL take a bad fall sometimes, and I would imagine that they are BOTH in alot of pain right now.
Robert and Kristen are both people we treasure. What they NEED from the Twilight Family now is our STRONG, SILENT SUPPORT.
WHY do YOU feel this intense pain like this?! You were all HOPELESSLY SMITTEN with the idea of these two people being eternally together because you CAN'T separate them from their Twilight CHARACTER'S eternal bond. And ALL those Hollywood gossip rag magazines have done ALOT to simmer AND sway your feelings surrounding Kristen/Bella and Robert/Edward.
Your heart break is Stephenie Meyer & Little, Brown and Company's fault for CAUSING YOU this INTENSE, irresponsible obsession. And while I am well-aware that this is NOT the time to be pointing that out - you NEED to KNOW WHY you feel SUCH INTENSE (and misplaced) PAIN about this subject.
I'm really worried about some of you - you're seriously HEARTBROKEN and I'm SO SORRY about that. You DON'T deserve to feel like this; and I KNOW some of you ARE feeling this pain as INTENSELY as the two people who are actually going through it - maybe you won't feel it for as long, but those first few moments/days were INTENSE and are no-doubt lingering for some of you.
BUT, whatever she has done, it IS NOT Kristen Stewart's FAULT that you feel this way...
Edward & Bella's characters were written to be so shallow in the books, that you had NO CHOICE but to transfer your intense obsessions onto Rob & Kristen (and people who came in through the movies and THEN read the books AFTER they had Rob & Kristen in their heads as Edward & Bella were even MORE susceptible to this INTENSE obsession). You WOULD have done that EVEN IF they HAD NOT been in a romantic relationship (the fact that they were is what is making this so hard for you now - it FEELS LIKE this was also YOUR relationship. Yeah, it HURTS)!
That's how obsessions like this work - it's an all-encompassing and almost AUTOMATIC thing that happens. THUS the ANGER toward these companies for publishing Twilight LIKE this. (And DAMN, you can pretty much QUADRUPLE that anger, now!)
ALOT of this emotional angst so many Twihards - and we're crossing some serious age barriers - are feeling was PREVENTABLE by Little, Brown and Company BEFORE Twilight was EVER published. Many of us DID NOT WANT to become obsessed, but we had NO CHOICE when it came down it it - and NOW look!
I've been screaming about young girls hearts getting broken because of the way Twilight was written in here for an entirely different reason - but now, it truly is heartbreaking.
I feel so bad for you and I don't know how to help you, but I want to. I wish I could just give you all a great big hug! NO ONE should EVER be forced into tears over their beloved fairytale for ANY REASON.
But please listen to me for a moment, Twihard Family...
KRISTEN didn't DO ANYTHING to ANY of you... She was just living out her own REAL life.
I've told you that it isn't fun being debunked by Twilight Breaking Dawn, and I've referred to it as feeling like a REAL broken heart. But what I've felt is nothing compared to what some of you are going through, right now.
SHAKE IT OFF, Twihards... NOW is NOT the TIME for YOU to express YOUR incredible disappointment OUT HERE for the WORLD to see YOUR pain - because it isn't REAL.
Kristen and Robert's IS REAL... Do you GET that?
Here's a more recent 'insert' from the 2nd timeline that may say this better:
"Twihard Comment months ago from Velma within my "Heartbroken Twihard Sisters" post:
"...At the base of even the harshest comments was a deep outrage that something perfect was broken. The world has too few perfect things as we all know, and their young love was something beautiful to behold...
Obsessing love "feels like REAL love" even though the love is unreal and (in this case) from a distance. In the case of Twilight addictions, this "unreal love from a distance" is ALSO what makes the obsession seem so magical AND real to us. Simply put, THIS is what most Twihard's are hung up on. Awwww... Nothing AT ALL wrong with that!! ;)
BUT, it is also the REASON WHY WE HURT inside when we "BELIEVE" Kristen and/or Robert are hurting... Whether they actually are or not.
This is how/why Hollywood USES them to manipulate US Twilight Fans... Cuz we're profitable AND funny when our emotions are spinning around about them. Our REAL FEELINGS are connected to THEIR real lives through OUR "magical" Twilight obsessions.
...and "Hollywood" KNOWS THIS!!"
HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO TO NOT MAKE THINGS WORSE:
TRY to keep in mind that this is NONE of your business - and DO NOT take offense to that. DON'T personalize this... This isn't ABOUT you. MANY of you have cheated on your significant others and/or been cheated on (and if you haven't yet you WILL be tempted and maybe even FALL yourself in the future) - it's a pretty standard Human thing to do. It is NOT something we flay people over anymore and IT IS FORGIVABLE!
Just take a deep breath and let it go... Kristen & Robert will deal with this issue between themselves. All YOUR selfish, judgmental rants will only make things harder and worse for both of them!
It's during times like these that Hollywood REALLY makes their money! IN FACT, Hollywood makes HUGE POTS of money off of their various gossip/marketing/propaganda machines - THAT'S WHY they never TONE DOWN the LAWS surrounding paparazzi stalking celebrities in Los Angeles - it IS THEIR BREAD & BUTTER, especially in a downward economy like this! (AND we all know how POOR California IS!)
I have no idea how much those pictures sold for, but I bet they were worth whatever high price was paid - they are COUNTING on ALL YOU TWILHARDS to heat this news to a rapid BOIL.
If you LOVE the actors who play your favorite Twilight characters - BOYCOTT ALL THOSE GOSSIP SITES AND MAGAZINES that SPECIALIZE in feeding you propaganda that tugs on your heartstrings!
In FACT, we're going to START with the rag that originally WON the bidding war on THESE incriminating pictures, US Weekly. There are MANY out there not on this list - you'll need to pay attention.
DON'T watch, buy OR read ANYTHING that isn't specifically a "Kristen or Rob Interview" done by THEM - online or otherwise.
DON'T let these trash sites and mags STIR YOU UP like this... Remember the recent Tom/Katie breakup with DAILY updates on both of their whereabouts including what they were wearing, doing, and all the wild speculation, etc...
DON'T give these Hollywood Paparazzi VULTURES anymore satisfaction OR money!
Just leave them be to work this issue and their lives out for themselves... I know it's HARD... But for Kristen AND Robert's sake, it's the right thing to do for both of them right now.
BTW - There is a trash piece floating around out there that claims to be an official response from Robert Pattinson via a Press Release or something. Ignore it - it's just people being mean and it will make you feel worse.
I would imagine they will both be pretty quiet now for awhile... Just breathe and relax - find a diversion. Life goes on and this too shall pass. :)
if you need one
BUFFY the Vampire Slayer
Saves the Day - AGAIN!
Take a deep breath through the nose, fill your lungs, lower your diaphragm, open you jaw, and exhale from your mouth. SILENTLY, but forcefully let the air out as if you are screaming as LOUD as you can - vent those emotions! It's almost like you are "whispering" a scream. Actual screaming is NOT good for the vocal cords. I KNOW some of you FEEL like screaming right now... Actors prepare themselves for it and I think they drink alot of tea and/or water, I'm not entirely sure. :)
Here's another good tool if you like to write, and even if you don't... You'll find Bella using this technique in my 1st Chapter rewrite of Twilight, ha! It's simple, really... Just start writing whatever you are thinking AND feeling on a blank piece of paper - a PENCIL works best for this because of the way it glides on the paper, but anything works.
Sometimes it's kind of hard to start, and sometimes you have all kinds of stuff to say - during the "blank" times when your emotions are not coming out through words, CONTINUE your progress by SCRIBBLING your emotions onto the page. KEEP scribbling until more words come, and GO until you feel like you're done - you'll eventually feel a release like you've vented steam. You might need to start out scribbling. You are basically pouring your emotions out through the pencil.
CAN'T let go of Twilight right now because
you're PULLING for it - here's the entire storyline of
"The Twilight Saga: ReVAMPED & ReWOLFED"
up on Fanfiction.net without most of the hot critique.
If nothing else, this will give you a FRESH view of Bella
beyond the one that is clouding your brain right now. Bella &
Edward are both VERY close to "the real thing" in this rewrite.
It MAY actually HELP you separate Kristen & Bella in
your mind; and even Robert from Edward a little... Although
that is more unlikely. Since he is the person we are all in deep
sympathy with, you're probably sinking deeper into him.
And with your heads where they are right now, it is
PROBABLY NOT a good idea for you to let him go, yet.
But it IS a good idea to start thinking about releasing him,
Ladies... It will probably make all the films he has coming
out after Twilight more enjoyable for you if you can dislodge
your ideal of him from your ideal of Edward, just a bit.
KEEP in MIND, however... If you LOVED Kristen/Bella before you STILL love her. Anger is just a part of that - you wouldn't BE so mad if you didn't CARE.
We estranged Twihards get that. :)
