After the world of Robsten blew up yesterday, and fans cross their fingers that Kristen Stewart’s public apology is just part of a real attempt to patch things up with Robert Pattinson, the gossips are all hunting for clues about how much RPattz — and Rupert Sanders’ wife Liberty Ross — knew was going on before the rest of the world. Most devastating is this quote from the New York Post from a witness backstage at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night: “Rob and Kristen were having a long and intense conversation backstage, and he looked miserable, heartbroken and humiliated. She was pleading.”
But they looked so sweet together onstage! Could he actually have found out THAT NIGHT? Sounds like a nightmare. But we can’t really put a whole lot of stock in this account — they could have just been having a heated debate over Rob’s decision to give the surfboards away to the fans. Still, this is the only thing we have to go on about what his reaction to her makeout session might have been.
UPDATE:People is now reporting that Pattinson has moved out of the L.A. home he shared with Stewart.
That kind of meshes with his quote in Vanity Fair back in April, when he seemed pretty intolerant of infidelity: “There’s a thing I’ve never got, why do people cheat? I’m not the casual-affair kind of guy. If I choose to be with someone, it’s because I really want it. When I have a relationship, I’m 100 percent into it.” Read more…
Between the intervention of his family and the pain of detox, we already thought The Situation’s struggle with addiction sounded devastating enough. Turns out, we didn’t know the half of it. First of all, the Jersey Shore cast member now reveals that he had become addicted to the narcotic painkiller Oxycodone. “They gave me energy,” the Sitch admits in an interview with InTouch. “I felt euphoric.” We also find out when the Situation started taking said pills: after injuring himself while on Dancing With The Stars in fall 2010. Oh no. Look, we love DWTS as much as the next Midwestern mom, but having Tom Bergeron and Bruno look on as you spiral into addiction? That is simply cosmically unjust.
As if that wasn’t sad enough (and it was), at his lowest moment the reality star caught a glimpse of what his fate would look like if he didn’t get help. “All of the sudden, I was like, ‘Wait, didn’t she die on prescription painkillers?’” the Situation realized while watching a Brittany Murphy movie. Murphy died in 2009, and medication played a part in her death. “‘That could be me. Am I going to be that guy that was so awesome on the Jersey Shore and then … that’s it?’,” he mused. Click through the jump to see the in-depth interview the Situation gave MTV when he left rehab in May. Personally, we are incredibly grateful that the Situation got treatment, not just for himself, but for us. We literally could not handle writing a tragic post about his death. We could not.
New info on the Jackson family debacle is coming in fast and furious. Yesterday we sorted through the details of everything we know so far. Today TMZ reports that TJ Jackson was granted temporary guardianship of Michael’s kids, thus suspending Katherine’s guardianship of Blanket, Prince Michael and Paris. Meanwhile, Randy Jackson announced on Good Morning America that Katherine was returning to L.A. after a little R&R in Arizona with her daughter Rebbie. Her return didn’t keep the judge from ruling on the case. Read more…
If you had told us we would spend today blogging about the detonation of RobSten, we would have done a five-minute-long spit take, then demanded you get out of our cubicles. Unfortunately, seeing as how Kristen Stewart‘s apology to Robert Pattinson for cheating on him with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders has been immediately followed by Sanders’ own apology, we guess we’re resigned to the fact that this is actually happening. “I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family,” the director told Peoplein a statement. “My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.” Maybe we can pretend this isn’t happen for just a little while long? Please? Please?
Of course, as we pointed out this morning, it was the director’s wife, model Liberty Ross, who offered the first public reaction to the impending scandal. “sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together,” she retweeted before deleting her Twitter account. Ross also allegedly posted a photo of a drunken Snow White to her (now deleted) Instagram account. Her comment on the photo? “Not so pretty and pure.” Oh lordy. Why is there never a fainting couch around when we need one?
Wow. We’ve heard a lot of celebrities apologize for a lot of indiscretions, but we’ve never heard anything as raw and heartfelt as Kristen Stewart‘s public apology to Robert Pattinson for apparently cheating on him with her Snow White and The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry,” the actress admitted in a statement today. Would someone mind picking our jaws up off the floor for us? They’re right there under our desk…great, thanks so much.
As tragic and personal as this admission feels, it’s like our own Kate Spencerpointed out last night when Us Weekly claimed to have photos of Stewart and Sanders kissing: People love Robsten because both Kristen and Rob seem like normal, honest, genuine people. Unfortunately, most normal, honest, genuine people don’t have their biggest mistakes photographed and immediately broadcast to the Internet. We hope Rob and Kristen are able to work this out, but even more than that…we hope we can lie down in a dark room and process this for a while. Because, dang.
We’ve been in crisis mode over here at VH1 Celebrity ever since US Weekly broke the horrendous news that Kristen Stewart might (might, you guys!) have been snuggling in the arms of a man who isn’t her vamp-BF Robert Pattinson. The magazine presented some photo evidence which allegedly shows K-Stew having an intimate moment with her married Snow What And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, and People is also jumping on the bandwagon with unconfirmed sources speaking out about the affair. Our resident Twi-Hard expert Kate Spencer has weighed in on Robsten-Gate with some beautiful and thought-provoking words, but so far there has been no official word from Rob, Kristen or their reps.
Regardless of what actually happened between Kristen and her director, we hope (pray, beg) that it doesn’t completely derail the 21st century’s greatest romance. Their breakup could ruin the Twilight saga for us forever! Watching it would just be too painful. Besides, we’re still not over these 10 awful celebrity splits that shook us right to our core. Head to the gallery below and prepare for some bitter sweet memories. Don’t leave us, Robsten! You can make it!
The 41-year-old director and 33-year-old model/actress have been married for seven years. They have two children, Skylar and Tennyson. The Brits moved to L.A. seven years ago for the sake of Rupert’s career.
Snow White and the Huntsman is Sanders’ directorial debut. He earned his rep as a director of commercials, earning an award for his Halo 3 ad. This story from the Guardian details how he very creatively snagged the SWATH gig.
Liberty’s got a strong career in high fashion, with spreads in Vogue, Elle, I-D and the like. She also makes avant-garde films. Here’s one of her blogs for Vogue U.K.
Liberty reportedly posted an Instagram pic showing Disney’s Snow White drunk, with the caption “Not so pretty and pure.” She also reportedly retweeted a quote from Marilyn Monroe that said, “sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” Her accounts have since been deleted.
Liberty’s brother is Atticus Ross, Trent Reznor‘s collaborator on The Social Network and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo soundtracks.
Liberty not only played the role of Snow White’s ill-fated mother, Queen Eleanor, in SWATH, she felt very involved in the whole production, based on what she wrote on her site after the premiere. Read more…
Earlier tonight, Us Weekly delivered a bombshell that has sent shock waves through the tight-knit Twilightcommunity. On the cover of its latest issue, which hits newsstands on Friday, the magazine alleges that Kristen Stewart cheated on her longtime romantic companion, Robert Pattinson, with her (very married) Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. The magazine apparently has photographic evidence of the “marathon makeout session” that took place between the 22-year-old Stewart and the 41-year-old Sanders on July 17 (just five short days after KStew and RPattz made all sorts of cute faces at each other at the Breaking Dawn, Part 2 press conference at Comic-Con).
If Kristen and Rob had any idea this news was going to break, they certainly did not show it when they appeared together at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night. Of course, there’s a very real possibility that these pictures have somehow been taken out of context by Us, but either way, we are feeling more than a little devastated tonight. Neither KStew nor RPattz has issued any official statement as yet (nor has Rupert Sanders), but we will definitely keep you posted if (when?) they do. However, a source told People that “Kristen is absolutely devastated. It was a mistake and a complete lapse in judgment. She wasn’t having an affair with Rupert. It was just a fleeting moment that shouldn’t have happened.” Uh-oh, that does not bode well. Either way…
And Weezy wept. According to TMZ, The Jeffersons star and comedic acting great Sherman Hemsley has passed away at his home in El Paso, Texas today. Hemsley was unmarried and leaves behind no children. Sources indicate that the actor was found by his nurse, who initially believed Hemsley was asleep before subsequently alerting the authorities. So far, it appears that 74-year-old Sherman died of natural causes. Either way, the afterlife is welcoming an extremely cantankerous angel as we speak.
While Sherman made a name for himself on the ’70s sitcom hits All In The Family and The Jeffersons, if a ’90s TV show needed an ornery grandpa, feisty judge or a short-tempered dinosaur, Hemsley was their man. Whether it was The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air or Family Matters, Sister, Sister or The Dinosaurs, chances are if you’ve watched TV in the last 35 years, you’ve seen the man at work.And we weren’t even joking about the dinosaur part! Hemsley’s last acting gig was in 2011 on an episode of House of Payne playing, who else, George Jefferson. If you’re unfamiliar with the role that made Hemsley a star (if that’s even possible), please take a moment to pay homage to a classic TV character, and a talented man who made us laugh:
We all love it when Madonna throws her personal brand of ice-cold shade, but this whole situation is getting out of control. “I’m glad I could help her write it,” Madge smirked during a Brazilian TV interview, after being asked her opinion of Lady Gaga‘s “Born This Way.” Ah, the chill! It burns! Seeing as how we’ve heard this exact snark before, we guess Madge is content to openly rip on Gaga whenever it amuses her? Seriously, how many times has Madonna actual brought up the “Born This Way”/’Express Yourself” beef in public? We tallied them up, and the number is starting to get absurd:
