As promised, this is the too-curious-to-not-look paparazzi-sifted stuff currently coming out of Hollywood so that you DON'T NEED to go surfing these trash sites for it, Twihards. *My* ONE, measly little hit isn't going to tip their scales.
8/15: Jodi Foster Blasts HOLLYWOOD's Lifebashing Ways
Jodi was one of *my* "Kristen Stewart's" when I was a young girl, and
I'm not surprised she has responded. She's always been one child celebrity
with a level head and HUGE heart; and she really exposes that about herself
with this - THANK YOU, Jodi! I've often wondered about "Stars"
reactions because SURELY they can see what's been going on with
these two better than anyone. And as older peers, it would be NICE
to see more celebrities supporting them in REAL ways like this.
8/15: Robert Pattinson to Play Lawrence of Arabia in "Queen of the Desert"
8/13: Rob is All Smiles on The Daily Show
(Your turn, Kristen... We LOVE you more than you know!)
8/15: 8/15: Rob Interview on Good Morning America!
8/16: Rob is doing a sneak peak of an exclusive Cosmopolis clip
on MTV with a 30-minute interview.
8/17: Cosmopolis PREMIERS in LA!
8/8: Kristen Stewart's mom comments to OK Magazine. I can't find the original source for this, but VH1 is a better secondary source than many.
8/7: Bill Condon Speaks to EW about the Scandal. FINALLY, Thank you, Bill Condon... I'm not so sure it's enough, but its something and its a start... SURE would be nice if STEPHENIE would address her fans. Incidentally Bill, it isn't TWILIGHT FANS who are needing to respect your two fine actors - we're simply reacting to an emotional situation that was ALWAYS volatile. WHERE are your comments toward HOLLYWOOD and their Paparazzi MERCENARIES?!
8/7: NEW Breaking Dawn Poster of Bella w/ Renesmee along with the trailer!
8/7: I HATE to put this in here too, but it's part of this unfolding story... Liberty Ross HAS actually been photographed (by paparazzi) without her wedding ring. Not ONLY have these paparazzi tarnished Twilight for US; but they did it at the expense of Kristen & Robert's personal liberty and freedoms in order to DO that, AND disrupted the INNOCENT lives of Rupert's 2 children and his wife - NONE of whom deserved ANY of this... These kinds of things should be discovered and dealt with in private, Twihards. It's NOT like they are politicians whose personal codes of conduct the Public NEEDS to be aware of.
8/5: Twilight Fans create "Hide the Lies" website in protest of Hollywood's LIFEBASHING ways!
8/5: Metro UK does an article on Emma - AKA "Nutty Madame".
8/3: Ashley Greene Focuses on Fans During Twilight Storm - Thanks for saying something to us and caring about us, Ashley! :)
8/3: Will Ferrell Making Fun of Kristen AND US on Conan. Humor is a release and while this may seem kind of mean, it isn't meant to be nasty. We Twihards ARE pretty funny to the world right now - and we always have been. That's why they like to pick on our favorite actors & actresses. This is ONLY on this page to make that point.
8/2: Kristen Stewart to Star in 'Lie Down in Darkness' - Thank you, MTV for always appearing to at least TRY to keep some integrity in your reporting. You've been doing that since the 80's (in the US, anyway - MTV in the UK seems to be oddly trashy by contrast). And while you haven't always been perfect - THANK YOU!
From 7/26: Here's info on Robert's new role in 'The Rover', as well.
8/2: Dr. Keith Ablow on "Inside the Mind of Kristen Stewart". This is a really good perspective about cheating, why people do it and WHY it can be forgivable.
8/1: Summit Entertainment is moving "full steam ahead" on Breaking Dawn promotion.
7/31: Rob has NOT cancelled ANY public appearances.
7/31: Rob's been spotted in London hanging out with good friends who are obviously taking very good care of him. Here's another article about that, and yet another one (along with a little extra unnecessary juice). I'm NOT saying he's actually in London (nor does it matter!); but SINCE the only "sources" we're hearing about him being in Olaj are unnamed and only from ONE gossip rag that is being rehashed by all the others - it makes you wonder. Maybe they are just trying to make it appear that their earlier story about Robert staying at Reese's place is true. Hopefully we'll eventually get to see which story is accurate. I LOVE poking fun at these trash mags! Woops, I MAY have to eat my words... Someone FINALLY named the Tweeter for Rob's Olaj night out. I'm still not so sure this sets things in stone... again, we'll see.
WOOT! Listen to THIS...
The LATEST news about Robert currently coming out of "US Weekly" - the INFAMOUS magazine who has the exclusive on Kristen's photos and was the Hollywood Gossip RAG who did us all the HONOR of breaking this IMPERATIVE story to us... Is SLOW on the UPTAKE, LoL!
Robert is/was supposedly hiding out at Reese Witherspoons ranch...
*I* reported to you EARLY THIS MORNING (7/31/12) that Robert has been spotted in London hanging out with friends at a local pub diggin' the tunes and NOT looking devastated. (WHAT a shocker, ha!) *MY* sources - there are TWO - was just from Tweeting fans in London.
And while I will acknowledge that I probably did NOT put NEARLY the effort into exhausting the question of the validity of this source, AND really - BOTH stories COULD be true within their own timelines...
*I* came out with it FIRST, and for SOME strange reason... I trust MY source over theirs. Frankly, I have absolutely NO DESIRE to read and/or listen to ANYTHING they have to say, anymore!
We Twilight Fans are now PERFECTLY CAPABLE of keeping tabs on our favorite people ourselves - no matter WHERE they are in The World! We're like ANTS, we're EVERYWHERE!
Thank you, outdated, TIRED, proud-of-yourselves DIRTY OLD HOLLYWOOD RAGS that we have had ENOUGH of. You are no longer needed.
There are FEW things that have been MORE FUN to read about regarding ALL of our beloved Twilight STARS - NOT JUST Robert & Kristen - than reading little fan-encounter stories from TRUE FANS who love AND appreciate these people for the efforts they make while (trying really hard to) respect their PERSONAL freedoms and space.
Like I've said... WE Twihards are the SOUL of Twilight. These PapSMEARS do NOT define what happens to OUR beloved fairytale NOR our favorite actors for us.
If you come across a story - either one that is worthy to be on our "Latest News" list AND/OR you have any fun encounters to tell us about, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
7/30: NOW, after they think they have sold as many print magazines that they can, US Weekly is rehashing these images of Kristen online! While I HATE to do this... DON'T go looking for them, Twihards. Here they are in all their glory. When I have more time, I'll grab them off the page and post them in here so that we don't have to use their link.
7/29: Current HOT No-No, "Ace Showbiz" AND (thanks for the info) "FameFlyNet Pictures" for the story from the ACTUAL STALKARAZZI TEAM (they were "SHADOWING" her!) that captured these photos of Kristen. THIS is HOW they do this stuff, Twihards... and LOOK how PROUD they are of themselves! Here is the link to that story, JUST because it IS an ACTUAL story with a REAL source from the actual photographers.
It should make you Twilight Fans ANGRY that these vultures have harassed your favorite character actors so incessantly for YEARS - and MOST of you have been around for ALOT longer than I have.
I'm NOT saying "Rob shouldn't have found out". NO, THIS is something that should (OR should NOT) have been discovered and dealt with in it's own time, in it's own way - in PRIVATE.
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!
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! And NO, this ISN'T ABOUT "Hollywood News"...
Hollywood NEWS is ONE thing... Katie Holmes filing a divorce at a courthouse is something that she physically did as a PERSON who also HAPPENED to be an actress. When Katie DID that, she KNEW that her life was going to be thrown into chaos for awhile. She KNEW a spotlight would be thrown on her and her family. BUT, she didn't seem to be doing much complaining while all of those paparazzi flies were swarming around her (and SURI!) a few weeks ago - probably because she's a celebrity and she KNOWS that IS part of the job, people are far more interested in you than they would be otherwise. THAT is the KIND of TEMPORARY STALKING (I'm NOT saying it's much better!) that you should maybe EXPECT when you are a celebrity.
But STALKING people with the INTENT of spying on them for NO OTHER REASON than to HOPE to CATCH them in a compromising position so you can PROFIT from their PAIN is bad enough. When it is ALSO DIRECTED at specific people/celebrities REPEATEDLY in MORE WAYS than I can BEGIN to COUNT over the YEARS - that's HARASSMENT.
When something like THIS happens... It's a CATASTROPHE.
That's probably why we're not hearing much from Stephenie Meyer or anyone from The Twilight Franchise camp right now... Gotta WONDER if anyone is even holding onto the REIGNS right now; they PROBABLY all want to drop them like a HOT potato and NO ONE KNOWS what to do!
So I guess I'll JUST KEEP TALKING, ha!
(Incidentally, Twilight Franchise Honchos... JUST in CASE you ARE freaking out right now and ARE clueless about "what to do"... FOCUS your rushed and much-less-concerted future marketing efforts on the characters of Renesmee, Jacob and ARO - and, you CAN EVEN INCLUDE the REST of your VERY pretty AND capable characters that you have NEVER given NEARLY enough screen time OR promotion to!)
This infamous movie franchise has done NOTHING but FAN the FLAMES of the obsessions of their YOUNG (and older!) fans and PROFITED from this HOT Hollywood ROMANCE!
While *I*, for one, would LOVE to see Stephenie Meyer and her Twilight Handlers do some real soul-searching AND make an attempt to reach out and help their fans through this - I'm not at all surprised.
Just GLANCE down this blog, it is LOADED with all KINDS of stuff they have been EXPERTS at ignoring for YEARS. As for Stephenie Meyer, herself... She seems more like the stick-your-head-in-the-sand type.
STAKING out ANY celebrity's home AS IF they are CRIMINALS - peering through fences and over the trees on their property, CHASING them down in their CARS, trapping them, cornering them, SCARING their children and MAKING them CRY, going OUT of your WAY to dig up DIRT, follow and try to talk to their friends, family, neighbors, co-workers into ratting them out...
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!
WHY does the "Life, Liberty and the PURSUIT of HAPPINESS" part of the beloved Constitution NOT APPLY to Celebrities?!
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?!
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!
What HAPPENED with Kristen was MANY things - we ALL have our judgmental lists of grievances, and SOME of those may EVEN be valid from your personal point of view. BUT all this was NOTHING but 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?!
ARE our HEARTS and SOULS really SO POINTLESS?
You shouldn't BE SO PROUD of yourselves, FameFlyNet. You made young girls CRY and you didn't write ONE DAMN GOOD SONG LYRIC to DO IT! I am not impressed.
I am HONESTLY not sure WHO I am more angry with over this - the way Hollywood treats their REIGNING STARS, or Stephenie Meyer and her SUB-STANDARD book publishing company for CAUSING all this to HAPPEN in the first place! (Save this for later if you're actually interested in reading it, I could really care less whether you do or not, now - but DON'T read it now while you're spinning.)
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 their lives gets EVEN MORE professional paparazzi kudos along with ANOTHER huge pile of money.
THIS is Ok with you, Twihards and WORLD?!
7/26: I'm putting this story in here even though it is NOT technically news. These are speculative articles that ask some valid questions... And here's some more interesting observations and another one - Because SOME of us really NEED to adjust our perspective about this subject, and there ARE a couple of things about this scandal that seem pretty "off".
And while *I* obviously (as you read about, above) do NOT personally believe this entire situation is a publicity stunt, simply because it seems TOO elaborate for that - IF there is ONE thing I have learned in this life; it's that NOTHING is impossible and people can really be crazy, selfish and MEAN - EVEN those we are SURE don't have a bad bone in their body.
I know that *I* was really struck at first by the PUBLIC absurdity of all this - AND who ARE all these "sources close to the couple" who supposedly keep elaborating for us? I can't imagine either Kristen or Robert are personally talking to many people - and those they ARE talking to are PROBABLY people they trust to NOT leak info. We'll judge this story after all this blows over, Twihards... But whether you agree with this or not, different perspectives are GOOD for your head right now. They help divert your attention from your own intense (and somewhat misplaced) pain.
Even though the articles above are written by someone who is in the publicity business AND is also taking advantage of this situation - I LIKE the contrast of her perspective on things, and she is doing alot to inform us all of "how Hollywood rags make their piles of money" OFF OF and AT THE EXPENSE of it's MOST LOYAL FANS and celebrities. Maddening.
