Here are some photos of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson making an appearance on El Hormiguero in Madrid yesterday. Everyone seems to be doing that Spanish TV show these days – it must be like The Late Show of Spanish TV or something. Kristen wore an Alternative Apparel top and Rebecca Minkoff shorts. She looks okay… well, she looks like she took a shower, I think. Meanwhile, US Weekly has a new story about Robsten and whether or not they are FOREVER! Us Weekly’s sources are all “Eh, maybe. They’re working on it.”
Welcome to Robsten 2.0! Since Robert Pattinson accepted Kristen Stewart’s apologies for her July infidelity, the pair have found themselves on more equal, if sometimes unsteady, footing. Her groveling campaign, which a friend says she extended to his family, paid off. Alas, trust remains an issue.
“He’s never going to forget what she did, but he has forgiven her,” a confidant, who insisted the Brit, 26, and the L.A. native, 22, aren’t good enough actors to fake it for their Twilight press tour, told Us Weekly. “Almost losing him was a wake-up call for Kristen. And Rob doesn’t want to be angry anymore. They want to move forward.”
Not that it’s been an easy road. With Stewart still on relationship probation, “there are good days and bad days,” said a pal. “She still feels guilty.”
The couple is currently on a whirlwind tour for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 promotions. Stewart and Pattinson have already walked the red carpets of the Los Angeles and London premieres this week, with Madrid and Berlin up next.
A cast source on the tour maintained, “They’re comfortable, almost as if no scandal had occurred.”
Almost, said a production insider: “She still thinks the world hates her. It’s hard to resume a relationship after something like that.”
I know I have been thinking about Robsten way, way too much, but I actually have a theory that I’ve been working on. Here’s what I think has gone down with Robsten 2.0, or Robsten Post-Rupert: I think Kristen did grovel and beg for Rob to take her back, and he did. But the balance of their relationship was always off – historically, he was more into her than she was into him, and then it got knocked off-kilter when she cheated on him and she had to convince him that she was more into him than he ever realized. So Rob was feeling good, hoping that their new relationship would be more balanced, that they were both super-committed to each other and that now he had more power in their relationship. But Kristen is now been knocked off her game, and she’s trying to regain her power over him by sulking, being moody and withdrawing from his affection – emotionally, she’s “running away” so he’ll “chase” her. And I just want to shake Rob and tell him this: “She is never going to fundamentally change. Don’t expect to magically be the most powerful person in this relationship. If you need to feel that way, you need to move on from her.”
