Showin’ Some PR Love

20 Sep

The moment Twitard PRsten fanatics stop twirling and clinging to their Edward pillow (because their life size Edward cardboard cut-out isn’t quite as soft and cuddly) long enough to read the big words published by a ‘source’ other than a tabloid, perhaps the reality will sink in.

I can’t stress enough the vast amount of love and respect I hold for the sane people and the LEGITIMATE news outlets who continue to expose the Rob and Sten f*ckery.

Things do not look good for you when your own people are calling you out! Perhaps they aren’t creative enough for Stewpid’s liking and perhaps some are pissed because she hinted that many of her peers are without a soul, much like herself vampire character.

It’s like they’ve been reading our comments for years and summed it all up for us with a neat little bow.

Please take a moment to read – and bask. LOL (Thanks, Lisa dahling!)

Stewart-Pattinson Romance: True Love Or Box Office Brilliance?

Please believe our on-screen chemistry.

Rumors that the relationship of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson is on the mend are prompting speculation over whether their love is an everlasting one, or the well-timed reunion is a political coup meant to reinvigorate the Twilight fan base ahead of the release of the final installment of the billion dollar franchise.

To date the franchise has pulled in more than $1 billion in domestic box office sales (and and additional $1.5 billion worldwide).

“We’re going to be fine,” Stewart told reporters on Sept. 8 when asked about her relationship with Pattinson at the Toronto Film Festival, more than a week before whispers of a reunion appeared in the press. For the young actress, who topped our list of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood this year, even an opaque statement on the possibility of reunion with might have been just what the doctor (or publicist, more likely) ordered to guarantee Twilight’s box office goes out with a bang.

When news of Stewart’s infidelity broke in July (she was photographed with and admitted to a relationship with Rupert Sanders, who directed her in Snow White And The Hunstman), my colleague Dorothy Pomerantz noted that her public apology was a rare plea for attention from the media.

“Stewart has never seemed to care much about her public perception,” she wrote. “She rarely smiles on the red carpet and often look deeply uncomfortable parading around in fancy dresses.” But what Pomerantz read as a heartsick (albeit very public) letter from a 22-year-old to her boyfriend, in hindsight may have set the groundwork for an orchestrated reconciliation.

For the good of the production, industry insiders speculate the pair may have put their differences aside and sat down for a bit of political strategizing in their mutual best interest. After all, both of the actors have staked their professional reputations on the films. Stewart earned $34.5 million last year, primarily thanks to her roles on the Twilight saga. Pattinson was right behind her–he took home $26.5 million. Both have much to gain if Breaking Dawn Part 2 is a success—and much to lose if it isn’t.

“People in Rob and Kristen’s position have to play politicians,” says Michael Heller, CEO of Talent Resources, a New York-based marketing firm that matches celebrities with branding opportunities. Like politicians, the personal lives of celebrities are up for critique—and play a definite role in their professional success (whether it’s a presidential campaign or a film release).

Setting the relationship on the rights (at least publicly) could be little else than a campaign strategy for the pair. Given recent reports that at a recent secret face-to-face meeting between Rob and Kristen, Rob insisted that they both have their respective attorneys and reps present, an all-business reconciliation seems par for the course.

For a celebrity couple to portray a fictional couple in a film only increases the pressure put on that “real life” relationship, Heller says. “If right before that movie comes out there’s a split it can absolutely affect sales.”

He echoes what FORBES contributor David Vinjamuri pointed out this summer: that the bad press of a breakup presents a very real danger for the last film of the Twilight franchise – The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, which hits theaters in November. Beyond that, he wrote, “It begs an even bigger question: what is the financial risk (and opportunity) of stars whose lives suddenly overshadow a brand franchise?”

In my understanding of the industry—and Heller’s career as an industry heavyweight behind me (he’s repped Lindsay Lohan, people. He understands spin)—that financial risk is precisely what explains the actions—and reconciliation—of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson this week. Their real-life relationship has threatened to eclipse (bad Twilight joke) the relationship of their on-screen characters, presenting a possible box-office disconnect for their fans.

Particularly with the rise of social media, and the around-the-clock surveillance of celebrities, the movie going experience has changed, Heller says. You go to a movie and you see Jennifer on the screen but you’re also thinking about what she wore when she got coffee last week in L.A. When is she going to get married? And how sad it would be if she’s too old to have a baby.

One thing, then, is certain: Kristen and Rob (and, perhaps most importantly, Summit Entertainment) do not want fans to watch Bella and Edward and think about anything but true, eternal, vampire love.

        Evening Ladies. Fab article that in a nut shell summarises what we have been saying for years. They are both fake.

      • wherethemindroams September 20, 2012 at 6:13 pm #

        Hi there. First time commenter. I’ve been scrolling through your site for a few months now. I don’t agree with a lot of the posts you all make on here because of their unnecessarily mean-spirited nature, but I do find them morbidly entertaining. However, I do agree with the general premiss of the site: RobSten is (or could be) the result of PR.

        Anyway, on to the comment I want to make.

        I don’t think this is that brave of Forbes when most of the population outside of the people who like Robsten think Kristen’s and Rob’s relationship is fake. And by population, I mean the average person. I’m not talking about gossip magazines and bloggers. Almost everyone I know that is familiar with Robsten thinks it’s a PR relationship. From what I gather, many people think they are just friends or friends with benefits, either way they aren’t as serious as all these gossip sites and magazines make them out to be. My mom thinks Kristen is gay and Rob is at least bisexual. RobSten’s up and downs are just too convenient for the Twilight franchise to be pure coincidence. So for Forbes to outright say this could all be PR is reflecting the view of many people. Those said people usually just don’t care enough to express their opinions on websites. Maybe the voice of the people has finally been heard?

      • D'eanna September 20, 2012 at 8:14 pm #

        Welcome wherethemindroams!
        Glad you decided to join us. The problem I personally have with all of this is the way they (and by they – I mean Rob and sten) have pitted the fans against eachother and caused people real life grief over their relay – whatever that may be.
        To follow along with the storyline is one thing – but things reached fever pitches all over the inernet and you know what they did? N.O.T.H.I.N.G. That’s right. Nothing. Other celebs are hounded relentlessly just for being friends with one or the other, Nikki Reed has been harrassed, defamed, called the most horrible things, simply because she possibly dated Rob before Bella got to him. You know what they do about that? Nothing. So, if they won’t even speak up for a co-star and possible personal friend to protect HER dignity and honor do you think they deserve that respect in return? I’m not even going to go there about her vile and vulgar attitude, flipping off people daily, dropping the F bomb every other word, or her general ungreatful, negative attitude. For multi millionaires who made their money off the backs of their fans devotion – the only thing they have done is offend everyone with their woe is me, it sucks to be famous attitude. That doesn’t make them badass – that makes them assholes. They just HATE being so famous. But, you know what they did about that? They continued to sign on the dotted line so this hype and hysteria could continue.
        I am sorry if this site has offended you and you think we are unnecessarily mean-spirited in nature, what I think is that we just call it like we see it. Please, stick around and chat with us if you’d like. We really do welcome all opinions – as long as no one is personally attacked. 😉

      • D'eanna September 20, 2012 at 8:38 pm #

        wherethemindroams – I checked your site. Quite nice! Keep up the good work. 😉

      • Acer September 20, 2012 at 10:05 pm #

        @wherethemindroams: First, thanx for your input. Yes, your site is nice (luv the pic of the NHM).

        Second, I don’t think most of the population even knows who RPatz and KStew are….seriously. And I disagree — I think the average person is still unaware of staged HW relationships (especially among adolescents & teens). That’s why it’s worked up to this point — making billions. BUT, I do think those numbers are on the decline with the help of social media, internet, etc.

        Third, I don’t know what you tag as “mean spirited,” but I’d rather take a shot in the dark against the filth & deception HW has shipped to the consumer for centuries — making trillions — than say nothing. Some of these HW big wigs (and the actresses/actors who play their game) sit back and laugh as they manipulate the masses — just another matrix machine.

        Like D’eanna said, I don’t appreciate the vulgarity, flippin’
        the bird, droppin’ the F bomb — and oh, smoking weed & having affairs with married men — especially when you’re being marketed to adolescents and teens. The LEAST ‘somebody’ could do (makin’ all ‘dat money) is be gracious on camera, but when ‘dey just show ‘dey a** with this mess….uh uh….nope….s.o.r.r.y. Somethin’ has to be said.

        Global society rule #1: if you act ‘da fule publicly you gonna take ‘da heat publicly.

        Anyway….bottom line = there are still moviegoers out there who appreciate a little dignity and a little respect from HW studios & the actresses and actors that WE’VE made rich.

        I agree that Forbes’ view of Twilight being PR is that of many people ONLY BECAUSE social media has caused a sudden surge of awareness among the masses — and this is just the beginning.

      • wherethemindroams September 20, 2012 at 10:37 pm #

        Thank you for the compliment on my blog, D’eanna.

        On Rob and Kristen not defending Nikki while she was still being harassed, if you notice, none of the castmates really hang out with Nikki except the one that plays Esme. Last time I checked, the rest of them seem to avoid her like the plague. Whatever happened between all of them must have been bad.

        I know this is sin on a board like this . . .
        but I am a Kristen fan. Don’t throw anything at me! I run a Tumblr about her. Before you say anything, I am a sane fan. I didn’t defend Kristen’s actions or make any excuses for her when THE PHOTOS came out. I do get a little annoyed when she flicks the paparazzi off. It gets old after a while. I remember this one particular time I got really annoyed though. When she was getting on a plane after the 2012 Comic-Con, she flipped out the paps. Meanwhile, Rob and Taylor just kept their heads down. She just made herself look like a complete idiot. She could have just went inside the plane like she was going to do. Problem solved. No paps. I also will admit I absolutely hated it when she wore Rob’s apparel out & about when she went to the Toronto International Film Festival. Not only was she bringing more attention to herself and the entire situation, she was also being disrespectful. (I didn’t know at the time that apparently RobSten was already started chatting it up again without either of their voices being drowned out by the sound of Kristen’s PR team crying.)

        Kristen has never been my “idol” or “role model” (no one is), but I really like her. I find her interesting. I find her adorable and funny at times also. Her and I have a lot in common when it comes to our relaxed casual style (except I don’t like shirts that look like they’ve been chewed on by rats), our love of literature, and we both attach overly complex views on rather simple things. We also are awkward and come off as emotionless during certain occasions when we really are not.

        I do get annoyed with Rob too. It’s rare though. I don’t follow him closely enough to want to throw objects at his British head. One instance of annoyance I had with Rob happened when I was viewing a clip of Taylor, Rob, and Kristen doing an interview at Comic-Con 2012. Rob “jokingly” said he wanted to slap Kristen out of her chair. That wasn’t a joke. No boyfriend jokes like that. Not even a friend jokes like that in that tone of voice he used. He sounded serious, but then he tried to play it off. If Rob has a distaste for Kristen that strong, then he needs to leave her alone and go about his business. PR or not. We don’t need Edward Cullen becoming Chris Brown because of his built up frustrations.

        My comment is very long. My apologies.

        Re: wherethemindroams

        Didn’t Jackson just recently name Nikki the godmother of his kid? I think if the cast ostracizes anyone, it’s K…and R, by default.

        Btw, hi! 🙂

      • wherethemindroams September 20, 2012 at 10:54 pm #

        I just googled that and yes, you are correct J. J Grites. When I was referring to the last time I checked, I meant during the time all of the Twilight cast went to “Ellen” to promote “Breaking Dawn — Part 1”. The entire case except for Elizabeth Reaser (I think) gravitated towards Rob and Kristen when the credits were rolling on the show. Now, it seems like more of the cast has warmed up to her since she has gotten married.

        Thanks for the info, J. J. Grites. And also, hi!

      • Diana September 20, 2012 at 11:05 pm #

        Didn’t Jackson Rathbone make Nikki his baby’s godmother? He likes her, a little, I guess. Most all the Twi actors have jobs, families, bands, and lives, so I’m not surprised that they don’t have time to hang out. What happened, that was really bad, was that she and Kristen got shut down on the lesbo stuff. Booby and Screw signed up for the fake relay, and both had to stay away from her. There was too much speculation about her and Bob, then WAY too much speculation about her and Screw. She probably expected them to be real human beings, and stand up to the crazy fandom. Obviously, Booby and Screw have just kept feeding the monster. NR is better off, imo.

        Even though I see Rob as a Boob, I can’t blame him for his “slap her off her stool” comment. She’s been publicly treating him like crap for years. It’s about time he kind of almost acted like he has a set. He’s not actually gonna hit her. The guy talks shit. He doesn’t snatch up phones, he doesn’t beat up paps, and he doesn’t smack around his fake ass gf.

      • J.J.Gittes September 20, 2012 at 11:10 pm #

        Re: wherethemindroams

        The cast prob “gravitated” to R and K during BD1 promo b/c that was around the time the fans were speculating why the cast were so obviously isolated from the trio…to show a more amiable front.

        But if you sift through all other interview and red carpet interactions b/w the Cullen entourage, they all genuinely seem to enjoy each other…constantly leaving thoughts of R and K in the dust. In those ‘pick the cast member you’d most like blahblahblah with…’, Nikki was picked frequently and even voted the funniest by the other cast members…guess who’s name wasn’t picked once by any of the cast. We already know how BFFL Ashley and Kellan are, as well as Ashley and Jackson’s friendship seems to have remained entact through their shipping phase. Peter and Liz also seem to legit enjoy each other’s presence. And, you’re right in that Liz and Nikki are close. Taylor seems to be buddy-buddy w/ them all as well b/c he’s always invited into their circle of hugs.

  2. Bren September 20, 2012 at 2:39 pm #

    It’s nice to see for a change that the reputable media calling out bs for bs, no sugar coating on Forbes end…kudos to them.

  3. sasha September 20, 2012 at 2:41 pm #

    The media is starting to call them out because they realize the Twilight gravy train has ended. This franchise is dead, most of the rabid fans have moved on to other (likely better) things.

    • D'eanna September 20, 2012 at 3:01 pm #

      And, that…Sasha is the whole problem wrapped in a nutshell.
      As the Forbes pointed out – fans have become more interested in Bob and Stewpid instead of Eddy and Bella. Which is not good for them because it is MUCH harder to sell the illusion that bad people are good people IRL than it is to sell a person as a character on the screen. They’ve been peddling E&B for years – too bad Bob and Screw took over and ruined their own reputations as well as the reputations of their alto egos.

      • sasha September 20, 2012 at 3:17 pm #

        That’s a result of Stephenie Meyer’s awful writing and the lousy script and cheap production values of the Twilight Saga films. Fans of the Harry Potter series are not particularly interested in the cast members of the films and their private lives that I’ve seen. That’s because the story and the characters themselves are the main attraction. There’s enough depth there to sustain interest. Not so with Twilight, hence we get “shipping” of Robsten as entertainment to keep people invested.

      • D'eanna September 20, 2012 at 3:26 pm #

        You are SO right about all of that! If in fact, the saga would have remained true to the story of its characters, they would have fared much better in the end. Instead, they tried to take 2 people who couldn’t be any more different than the characters they play and decieve the public into believing they were all one entity: Edward and Bella. And that the love story carried from the pages into their real actual lives.
        Lonely housewives, teens, tweens, and social shut-ins all grabbed onto the idea of something that NEVER existed. Now, look where we are.
        And, I am with you, I don’t think Smeyer could care any less. She sold out a long time ago.

      • dc291 September 20, 2012 at 3:44 pm #

        I never can understand why people felt the need to “import” the characters onto R & slut? I enjoyed the books, the films (meh), Couldn never stand her performance in any of them. What was it someone said – she acts like she has tourets?

        Makes you wonder, if there would have been as much shit going on if either NR or AG played Bella?

      • sasha September 20, 2012 at 4:20 pm #

        dc291, they marketed the films that way. They blurred the lines between fiction and reality so that the story would have a life outside of the text. It gave Twihards something to cling to in between movie releases. It also gives the naive losers among them hope that “fairytales are real.” For me, I never understood how anyone with a brain could confuse Kristen & Robert with Bella & Edward. They are NOTHING like their characters no matter how hard the tabloids pushed that squeaky clean, hetero, traditional image of love with them. I look at “Robsten” and all I see two sexually ambiguous potheads who need to take a shower.

      • Acer September 20, 2012 at 10:14 pm #

        @de291: I hear what you’re saying. I read first Twilight book but I appreciated the storyline more than the writing — I thought Meyers’ writing was atrocious. I have nothing against her, just it was so hard reading her poor syntax and vocab.

        And I couldn’t understand either why they cast KStew, or at least didn’t replace her after Twilight.

    • J.J.Gittes September 20, 2012 at 6:41 pm #

      Re: Sasha

      In the beginning HP fans of course did try their hand at shipping the starring cast mates…really, lots of fandoms do it. BUT, the big difference, on why it never really escalated to much, is that the actors never played into it ever. Dan, Emma, and Rupert were all very upfront about their FRIENDSHIP and continued to do so right to the end. The HP franchise never needed to use that sort of cheap publicity to market any of their films b/c the films were good of it’s own merit.

    • wherethemindroams September 20, 2012 at 10:49 pm #

      Well, the middle-aged housewives that loved the Twilight movies probably have moved on to the 50 Shades of Grey series, which is 10 times worse than the Twilight series. That’s no surprise considering E.L. James originally wrote it as Twilight fanfiction. I wish she would have watched porn to released her frustrations instead of write this crap to be released to the world. Whoever allowed the 50 Shades of Grey series to be published should be ashamed about what they have done to literature. The book’s editor should also feel ashamed. The person who published the Twilight Saga should be ashamed for allowing girls to mistake abusive and shallow relationships as an epic love to otherworldly to ever be like anyone else’s normal relationship.

      • D'eanna September 20, 2012 at 11:58 pm #

        I completely agree with that. The decline in what we expect from a ‘good book’ is atrocious. Now, we just want a good love story. 😉
        You are very correct that the relationships portrayed in both series are not healthy by any standards, but unfortunately, as women, we always want to ‘save the day’ so to speak – thus the popularity.

    Ok lost some brains cells WTAF is she trying to say and no HO you are the same as before!!

    Rumours are circulating which suggest that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are back together, following her scandalous affair with Rupert Sanders, the married director of ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’.

    And it seems as if Kristen is keen to promote the idea that she has seen the error of her ways, if her recent interview with Madame Figaro magazine is anything to go by.

    The actress, who is busy promoting ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2’, in which she stars alongside Robert Pattinson, explained to the magazine that she is a woman of “good values” and, more importantly, that she has learned her lesson:

    “Today I am different.”

    The actress continued to explain, in a very deep and philosophical manner, that people change as they grow older, suggesting that she has taken a lesson from her affair with Rupert Sanders:

    “I always had confidence in me, that does not mean I sleep on my laurels or I’m not mistaken. Everything evolves and life support to make you move.”

    “I hope to be thoughtful and responsible. I do not lead a frivolous life, but I do not see as many players, only charity galas because it is seen! I do not want to scatter, I want to be sincere and invested in everything I do.”

    Deep stuff. Do you think that she really has learned the error of her ways? We bet Robert Pattinson has his fingers crossed…

    • D'eanna September 20, 2012 at 2:58 pm #

      Ok – this has to be some sort of translation from a foreign mag. Right? Because that doesn’t make a bit of sense…which…coming from her….
      Bitch is NOT that deep! Give it up already! ‘Today I am different’? Pfft! That was nothing but her being fed her lines.

      • Lisa September 20, 2012 at 3:04 pm #

        IDK it was from this mag Madame Figaro magazine . But still mahybe they had no words for her translation 😆 Her interviews suck!

    • D'eanna September 20, 2012 at 3:14 pm #

      Oh I’d bet on that Kristen is not repented of having an affair with Rupert, if any, she regrets not being more wary when she got caught. K in TIFF didn’t look ashamed or shy, rather the other way round. I saw her very confident and kind of smug and defiant IMO.

      • Rachel September 20, 2012 at 4:30 pm #

      Madame Figaro is a French magazine. This is got to be one of the most terrible translations of an interview I’ve ever read, if this is from their magazine or site. If not, can we please get someone French up in here to translate this? Google Translate may not cut it.

    Wow – just OUCH – talk about getting slapped on the face! My opinion of Screw has never been more than I would care about a slug however, my opinion of Rob is slipping down the slope quickly!

    ” A woman of good values”, “in a very deep and philosophical manner”…Excuse me while I ROFLMFAO! This is hilarious, as if the dumb bitch who isn’t able to string together one coherent sentence would know anything about philosophy. And you’re totally right, D, she couldn’t even spell the word laurels. Presumably she thought of Laurel and Hardy…how fitting. 🙂

    The article is really interesting and objective. Not the sort of reading rob-sten fans will enjoy though…. I’ve already read some nonsense in twitter.

  10. Rachel September 20, 2012 at 4:44 pm #

    This RT from DL

    The fact that this is so bad for Pattinson’s career as a ‘serious’ actor is what makes this so amusing. The smell of desperation and loser can’t easily be washed off. He’s a joke, the relationship looks like a big, fake orchestrated PR scheme for a shitty movie and all of his fangurls and new fans who thought he seemed so ‘down to earth’ and ‘charming’, are repelled and repulsed.

    And let’s face it, it’s not like his fans managed to make any of his string of crappy movies hits at the box office.

    Stewart has no movies lined up, yes? I think she’s going to see just how fickle Hollywood can be when you are no longer making them money.

      For me, this is precisely why I’m being particularly scathing towards the idea of it. If they seemed like a legit couple-no games of it-and R decided to ‘take her back’, I’d prob be apathetic…’do what you want, but I’d give it several months tops’. But the fact that it really does seem like they’re attempting to manipulate me into believing this farce, they’ve made it personal by questioning my intelligence.

    • Ninita_Not_A_Fan September 21, 2012 at 2:16 am #

      Count me on these ex-fans that now feel repelled by him! Also this is the reason I came to this awesome board (thanks for the welcome :D), my ex-fellow nonstens can’t stand any critics towards Bob (is this name because of himbeing some kind of doll, ROTF! 😀 ) It’s ridiculous, some of them act like if you have insulted them personally, IMO these kind of nonnies are as crazy as the sheep. Sorry if this if OT and I don’t mean to offend anybody, it’s just because I’m tired! Did this happen to any of you here?

      • Rachel September 21, 2012 at 2:25 am #

        LMAO Ninita. What a fab picture 😆 Welcome
        JMO but what I think repulses me most with the fandom is that they managed to have complete strangers hating each other over what?!!
        I am respectful of their opinions. I get being a fan. But as I think many have said here putting on a suit, washing your hair does not change the essense of anyone. Bob appeared to like being with Bitch. She has non redeeming qualities so that sais everything about him!. Best bit about coming here is you get to laugh at them both. 😆

        Lol that’s what this site is for ….

One reason I loveeee this site….I feel like most of my friends like one or both so I can’t vent lol…here we all get each other but have our own theories n don’t jump n twirl at stupid stuff like sheep lol…n welcome!

    How desperate are these news outlets that girl that supposedly saw them LMAO at that, her tweets are going to be on Enews are they for real. No one believes this girl saw them except a select few and how can one tweet and two ppl in a car be news. I will never get it. The girl is bragging about it and on twitter all day LOL

    • Rupsten (@Rupsten_Is_Real) September 20, 2012 at 7:01 pm #

      Hahahahahaha I’m laughing of her. She has nothing and her tweets are contradictory. Her words are:

      They were in the Kristen Slut car yesterday. She says it’s a Mercedes and Slut not has one. Slut was driving but when she saw the paparazzis, Rob and she moved to the back seat. The bodyguard took control of the car. The pic is very dark but they were happy. The pic? There not was many paparazzis?

      The picwill be published tomorrow because HL and US. Weekly have to sell it for big bucks. This shipper says her uncle works in a spanish tv channel. A channel that not have gossip shows and has no exclusives about this circus. In fact a spanish girl told me that this channel never speak about them. So a spanish channel has the pic before Gossip Cop, for example.

      How delusional is she? Pathetic fandom… They always have blurry pics that never can be published.

      • D'eanna September 20, 2012 at 8:03 pm #

        So, we are supposed to get another pic of Stewpid gettin down and dirty in a car? Yeah! That’s top notch PR thinking right there.

      • J.J.Gittes September 20, 2012 at 8:25 pm #

        WTF? They switched drivers while on the road? And their bodyguard was w/ them…like leering at them from his seat behind them, waiting for them to ask him to pull a fast & the furious to take over the wheel? Were they expecting to garner enough attention to warrant a bodyguard? She looks pissed? Not smug? Grateful? O.K. then. 😐

        P.S. K didn’t need a bodyguard while w/ Rupert. Just the 2 of them…intimacy at its finest.

    People Magazine Slips Into Tabloid Territory With Sketchy Reporting

    By TheImproper, September 19th, 2012

    Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart met over the weekend for hot makeup sex, or to decide who gets the dog; no one really knows for sure. But a tabloid magazine that actually checks things out says they at least met… and can’t resist speculating.

    It’s impossible to discern the meaning of the meeting. You see, that’s because they met in “secret,” according to Gawker’s moronic reporter. As if they are heads of state who somehow have an obligation to conduct all of their affairs in public at the United Nations. Or at least Starbucks.

    No, they are very private people. The couldn’t possibly have a secret meeting, because they are under no obligation to meet in public, even if their ravenous fans are dying to learn where things stand in the wake of Stewart’s cheating scandal with Director Rupert Sanders.

    According to People, which is not known to invent sources or makeup quotes like most other tabloid magazines, a source claims Rob and Kristen met in Los Angeles over the weekend. The story actually used the word “reunite.”

    Isn’t that statement just a little bit loaded? What does “reunite” mean anyway? Is the magazine suggesting they’re an item again? Let’s check out their so-called “source.”

    “According to an insider,” the magazine wrote, “the ‘Twilight’ hunk’s pals ‘think they’ll be a couple again.’” Which obviously means they’re not a couple yet. So, why throw a firebomb like the word “reunite?”

    And really, an insider who knows the ‘Twilight’ hunk’s pals is not really an insider. That’s someone who is talking to someone who is supposed to be Rob’s pal. Except Rob’s real pals say they are not talking.

    So, that’s not first-hand information; that’s not even second-hand information; it’s third hand dish. How reliable is that? Might as well quote PerezHilton.

    Neither Pattinson nor Stewart has said anything in public about the nature of their obviously fractured relationship. But they do have a movie to jointly promote, “Breaking Dawn, Part 2.”

    Is it possible they just wanted to work things out, so they can be civil to each other on the red carpet and during news conferences?

    The press tour for the final “Twilight” movie starts in November. Probably then, and only then, will there be any clue as to how they feel about each other. Then, again, maybe not.

    • J.J.Gittes September 20, 2012 at 8:49 pm #

      I’d really rather them not be civil. Everybody likes a good bitchfight. 😀

      • D'eanna September 20, 2012 at 9:08 pm #

        LMAO JJ! That is the ONLY thing I would pay to see from them.
        Celebrity deathmatch, anyone?

      • dc291 September 20, 2012 at 9:20 pm #

        I’d pay as much as I could afford for him to just look over to her and say SHUT THE F8*K UP – like she normally does to him!

      • Lisa September 20, 2012 at 10:02 pm #

        I think they would sell more tickets if they bitch fighted or faced one another on the red carpet! I agree i would watch BD2 10 times if Rob would turn to her and say “Shut the F*ck up you harlot” 😆

  17. Acer September 20, 2012 at 8:58 pm #

    BRAVO! *stands claps hands* One of the best posts, yet!

    “If right before that movie comes out there’s a split it can absolutely affect sales.”

    “…the bad press of a breakup presents a very real danger for the last film of the Twilight franchise…” “…what is the financial risk (and opportunity) of stars whose lives suddenly overshadow a brand franchise?”

    And have I not been saying this for MONTHS:

    “with the rise of social media, and the around-the-clock surveillance of celebrities, the movie going experience has changed…”

    There has been a paradigm shift in the biz of HW and the big fat cat jack assses at the top are still using archaic methods to pimp their starz like it’s the 70s and it ain’t workin’ no mo’. Hilarious!!!

  18. sarita September 20, 2012 at 11:14 pm #

    Well it looks like Summit wants to pay for couple’s counseling:

    Kristen Stewart In Counseling Since Affair: REPORT

    Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are reportedly mulling over the possibility of getting back together, which is good news for Stewart, who has reportedly been completely distraught and on the verge of an emotional breakdown since news of her cheating scandal went public.

    Weeks ago sources claimed the 22-year-old actress wasn’t sleeping and would stay up all night crying, nearing a total meltdown. The actress was upset enough that she started seeking professional help to deal with her issues, according to a new report from OK! Magazine (via HollywoodLife).

    “As for Kristen, this is far and away the most devastating thing that’s ever happened to her. She’s getting counseling, but she feels like the only thing that would make her happy would be if Rob would take her back,” an insider revealed to the magazine.

    If the source’s claims are to be believed then the actress is likely over the moon at the possibility that she and Pattinson may be a couple once more, and a second source close to Pattinson told OK! that “Breaking Dawn: Part 2” executives at Summit Entertainment are allegedly so desperate for the couple to reconcile, they are even considering funding couples’ counseling.

    While that sounds like a stretch, it was reported that studio executives have been hoping Pattinson can forgive Stewart for cheating on him and will get back together with her. The couple met on the set of the first “Twilight” movie back in 2008, and their romance offscreen has played a huge role in the obsessive fan-driven success of the film franchise.

    With the film’s theatrical release set for November, the couple’s possible reconciliation would undoubtedly make producers very happy.

    • D'eanna September 21, 2012 at 12:02 am #

      Oh my! They are really stretching this out! Way to turn Stew into the victim here. ‘But, but, but…she’s going for counseling Roooob. You HAVE to forgive her now, because she is really trying.’ 🙄
      I’m tellin’ ya – if these reunion reports really are all BS from her team to turn the tables on him – he HAS to be hating her guts right about now.

      • sarita September 21, 2012 at 12:11 am #

        D’eanna, I want to desperately believe that Rob and Nick are being blindsided by KS and Ruthless, and scrambling to come up with a line of defense. lol

      • D'eanna September 21, 2012 at 1:06 am #

        I know sarita. I don’t think blindsided. I just think Ruth isn’t letting up. And, I really think that regardless, he is obligated. He signed on the dotted line. He might be regretting it, but he made that decision. 😦
        Shit is about to get real. LOL It is going to be coming out hard and fast until the premiere. I say we just sit back, have fun, and watch the free circus play out in front of us. 😉
        Have a great night sweetie! Waaaay past my bedtime here. LOL

    Oh, and the pic of my avatar is in honor of the possible glorious gayness of Bob. He doesn’t ping my gaydar, but if he’s dating KSlut, he’s gay, because I think she has a penis bigger than his. OMG,LMAO!

    • Ninita_Not_A_Fan September 21, 2012 at 2:44 am #

      Oh and Kelli, thanks! 😀 I like people with sense of humor, some nonstens take things way too serious. My little hope for Rob or Bob, lol, will continue if he’s not seen with KSlut outside promo, I too get pissed with all this lame “are they/aren’t they” gossip, but the part of me who was fan of him for 3 years is expecting that I can endure this shit if it stays in the level of gossip only.
      If there are pics of them together I’ll shoot my notebook and burn it, kill it with fire!!!

      • Kelli September 21, 2012 at 2:53 am #

        Lol I’ll bring my stuff too 🙂 lol…yess I’m content if it stays gossip…but pics again…just no…lol….yesss some are wayyyy too serious! ESP reading stuff on twitter I just sit there like …are u kidding me? ESP when their married or over and acting like its the end of the world….can only imagine wat some of the husbands think when they travel for the premiere lol…not sayin anything bad if married or over 50…. Just the ones who r and r insane lol

  21. dc291 September 21, 2012 at 7:03 am #

    I surely hope that if he DOES end up “reconciling” with her then he’s got plenty to keep him busy, because it will be a LONG time before he can split with her and not make it look like the PR stunt that it appears to be. If they get back together then split up right after the movie it will be obvious that THAT is exactly what it was.
    Oh and I’ve changed my avatars on FB and other sites as well, because I just can’t look at him right now.

    • ? September 21, 2012 at 7:25 am #

      booby and k (their sources and friends and agents and ‘teams’) just love to stir up their ‘fans’ .. it is just unbelievable to me how they can do this kind of crap and get everyone all worked up…and it infuriates me to no end.. this franchise is a piece of crap that needs emotional investment on the part of mostly women to come and watch the shitfest and buy their merchandising.. it really makes me sad to watch women (regardless of their ages) intentionally manipulated this way… all my thoughts…

      all for money…………. 😦

        Oh my…. 😦

        And what do you think booby would say to this woman? Do you think he would have a drink with her or say thank you for your passionate concern or send an autographed photo of himself licking k’s armpit? Or does he see her as another leech sucking off of him for her own 10 minutes of fame? Or is he just laughing?

      • sasha September 21, 2012 at 8:46 am #

        Of course it’s all about money. Why be angry about this? Hollywood is a business built on selling lies and fantasies to people, If they’re dumb enough to get conned and too immature to tell fictional characters from real people I don’t feel bad for them. This fandom is now mostly older women who should know better. I’ve no pity for any of them.

      • Rachel September 21, 2012 at 10:25 am #

    I dont understand how either of them can let all this speculation run wild if they have ANY concern at all for their reputations. EVERYONE is calling this a PR stunt. On the radio this morning the hosts were laughing at how transparent this all has been. How can they hope to have “serious” careers after this? I wouldnt be surprised if she doesnt get work again for a long while and his films dont go forward as rumored next year. Who would want to associate quality work with tabloid celebrities? No one cares about their acting, only Robsten. And they had a chance to end that with the end of the relationship. They could have both moved on, but they are choosing to continue this farce to sell tickets. It makes no sense for them career-wise. One can ONLY conclude that they like the attention and they only care about making money, and that they have no intention of being serious actors, just cashing in on their fame while it lasts.

  26. Diana September 21, 2012 at 10:10 am #

    Still nothing from Bob’s team, wrt to the supposed lovers reunion? No denials w/o saying a word? No date night with K either. yet? So he’s going with his usual MO? Does he just plan to shmooze through this, “Maybe they are/maybe they’re not” crap, and come out clean as a whistle? If he loses his Robsessed fans, by being with her, and he also loses Robsten fans, because they’re not buying the epic reunion, what fans will he have left?

    Personally, I think he needs to shit or get off the pot. Time is ticking. Nov 1, is fast approaching. Does he want to be taken seriously(good luck with that) as an actor, or is he going to try and sell the showmance some more? If he’s going with option 2, then he’d better step up his game. If even sheep are calling BS, he’s not trying hard enough. K and Ruth have done their part.

      Also, did anyone else here this story:One of the best stories I’ve heard was shared by a VH1 journalist. Happened during the British promo tour – Kristen watched adoringly as Rupert ran through a few interviews, quietly standing by with a ladybug held her hand. (the interviews were outside under a tent) When he finished she walked over to him, gently placed the ladybug on his arm, smiled sweetly and told him it was for “good luck”

    Why wait nearly 2 months for damage control? Why didn’t all of these people jump to her defense in the begining? Perhaps the ink hadn’t dried on their checks?

      Negotiations are an arduous affair.

      Plus, it’s prob not easy to think up positive spin material regarding her. That prob took several sleepless nights.

      Huff po sold out long ago… When they merged, they lost the independent p.o.v.

      I believe that what you now see are cobbled together stories from others or write them for a fee…IMHO as always.. But who knows, but therehasbeen a change since the merger/acquisition.
      Shame on you arianna 😦
      But I get it…..whether I agree with it or not….

    Watching that video of above, there’s one shot of Rob in his ball cap and jacket walking, he looks like he is so on drugs or something. What is up with him? Scary. And I think it’s interesting how K talks about her “boyfriend” but NEVER says Rob’s name. It’s all a huge game. I agree, probably talking about Rupert all along.
