Wow, that’s the one-two punch right there, Kristen Stewart. First everyone in the Western world finds out the intimate details of your most regrettable decision, now your mom and dad are getting divorced. Call your grandparents, insist that Bear stay inside and make sure your car insurance is up-to-date, just in case! Terrible things come in threes! According to TMZ, Jules Stewart filed for divorce from husband of 27 years John Stewart on August 17. The couple has been estranged since June 2010, but we bet it would have been nice to get through the rest of summer without another painful emotional trial for KStew to grapple with. We were so close, girl! We almost made it!
Apparently filmmaker Jules filed the paperwork herself, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split from her producer husband. Considering how quick Jules was to tell OK Magazine! “My daughter is being hounded!” following Kristen’s cheating scandal, we sure she loathes the fact that everyone knows her personal business this time around too. Luckily Labor Day weekend seems like the perfect time to curl up on the sofa together, watch Mean Girls and A League Of Their Own on repeat and cry. Then on Monday, Kristen can go to her mom’s house and do it all over again.

We can’t imagine what it’d be like to watch your kid struggle with a public break-up (or, you know, publicly cheat with a married man), which is why we sympathize with Jules Stewart when she comes to her daughter’s defense. “It’s not my affair,” the script supervisor told to OK! Magazine about the fallout of Kristen Stewart‘s romance with Rupert Sanders, declaring, “My daughter is being hounded.” We guess we were naive to think the vitriol toward Kristen was limited to the comment section of every website on the Internet. Now that we think about it, paparazzi are probably following her around 24/7. After that first round of scandalous photos, everyone must be looking for potential canoodling.
Of course, it’s not just extremely enraged 13-year-olds on Tumblr or photogs that are interested in KStew. Rumor has it Rob Pattinson has also allegedly been calling her up. Since those calls allegedly take place in the dead of night and involve him being more than a little drizzy, we guess you’d call that “drunk dialing.” “Rob had been avoiding her calls, but now they’re talking … well, they’re barely talking,” a source told In Touch. “There’s a lot of dead silence on the phone because there’s not a lot to talk about.” Well, that’s some gossip we find both sad and totally believable. Haven’t we all made a weepy phone call at 4:00am that we regretted the next morning? You need to hide his phone when he’s had a few, Reese! Just know that we deeply sympathize with you, Rob. We sympathize with pretty much everyone in this situation, actually. Well…not so much Rupert Sanders. The man has children, for pete’s sake!
