–Kristen Stewart is an idiot. To have the level of fame she does and to think she could screw around with a married man in public(!) and in daylight(!) is beyond comprehension. And to try to pass it off as a “momentary discretion” is insulting. You don’t decide to suddenly and for the first time fool around with a father of two on your way home from the gym. BUT she’s 22. Remember all the stupid crap you did when you were 22? Now imagine if all of that were splashed across the cover of magazines. Not only is she 22, but she’s been in a fame bubble that kept her far removed from reality and consequences. More importantly, she is in the MOST scrutinized relationship on the planet. Even more so than Brangelina. Sure, we all want to look at photos of those two and their brood (whether you admit it or not), but most of us take a glimpse and then move on. Not so for Robsten and the Twihards. They analyse every single sighting, quote and gesture. Trust me on this — I recently felt it firsthand. Can you imagine being in what thousands (maybe more) think is the most perfect relationship ever? How would you not bend a little under the weight of that? I’m not saying she’s not an idiot, and I’m not saying she doesn’t deserve to feel some backlash (that from-the-gut apology — “”I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry”” — certainly isn’t helping her case.) I’m just saying that the fan reaction today is getting gross and that we might want to put down the torches and pitchforks for a sec. Let’s not completely crucify this girl, mm-kay? (But feel free to go to town on Rupert Sanders. That guy’s a pig.)
-Meanwhile, Lady Gaga tweeted her support for Robsten, Rupert Sanders has jumped on the apology bandwagon, sources insist nothing happened until after they filmed Snow White and the Huntsman, and Us Weekly reportedly gave KStew’s camp notice before running with the photos.
-In the meantime, is anyone else wondering what Charlize Theron thinks about all this? That woman is a soundbite machine. Someone mic her up!
-In today’s non-Robsten news (yes, there is some!), following a videotaped confrontation, Katherine Jackson has lost custody of Michael‘s kids, who are now under their cousin’s care. Paris Jackson is tweeting her father’s lyrics amid the firestorm.
-There’s a reason Matthew McConaughey is suddenly looking scary skinny. He’s prepping to play an AIDs victim in The Dallas Buyers Club.
–Joshua Jackson says his first date with Diane Kruger was terrible. I’m not sure a terrible date with Joshua Jackson is scientifically possible…
-Proof Carly Rae Jepsen has really made it: someone has stolen nude photos of her from her computer. (Sidenote: did anyone else realize she’s 27?!)
-Playmate Holly Madison says she’s started the adoption process. Goodie.
–Snooki plans to film her child’s birth. Goodie squared.
-Awww…Ron Wesley carried the Olympic torch today.
-More Jon Hamm rumours that I’m going to totally repress in 3-2-1…and it’s gone!
-Ex-Community showrunner Dan Harmon is finalizing a deal with Fox.
–Kristen Stewart and Alex Pettyfer are set to do a movie together. That’s going to be one sulky set!
-Lifetime just picked up a TV show created by Renee Zellweger based on her life. Sadly, its not titled How My Face Got This Way.
-The first official photo of Mariah Carey as an American Idol judge is out. OMG…I can’t breathe…perfection!
-The Modern Family cast is supposed to do a table read tomorrow. Let’s see who shows up this time.
-Wanna watch Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally and Alison Brie do bong hits while promoting their new movie? Of course you do.
-Here’s the first trailer for Life of Pi. Looks good (though I could have used a heads up before that whale scene…)
