Robert Pattinson mends his devastated sparkle-heart at Reese Witherspoon’s ranch

Poor, poor Sparkles. Poor Liberty Ross (I keep writing Liberty Bell, btw) too. But poor Sparkles. It’s going to be ALL SPARKLES in the tabloids today. Kristen Stewart will likely get some covers too, but the overwhelming story will be “Poor Sparkles, crying sparkle-tears as he sparkles all alone.” Us Weekly – the tabloid that broke the cheating story and bought the exclusive photos of Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders – is still on a victory lap. Yesterday, they published a hilariously bitchy “6 Myths about Kristen’s Fling With Rupert Sanders” in which they basically called out various tabloid media outlets for their catch-up reporting. And now Us Weekly has put Sparkles on this week’s cover – because we NEED to know what’s going on with poor Sparkles.

Where in the world is Robert Pattinson? The unexpected answer, as revealed in the new Us Weekly, is Reese Witherspoon’s vacation house.

The Twilight star, 26, has gone AWOL ever since he discovered that his longtime love Kristen Stewart cheated on him with director Rupert Sanders on July 17 (with Us Weekly first revealing the shocking pics July 24). False online reports claimed a U-Haul truck was spotted outside the L.A.-area home he shared with Stewart, 22, and that Pattinson had retreated to his native London to party with pals.

The real story? When the devastated Brit needed to get away from it all, his Water for Elephants costar Witherspoon, 36, offered up her tranquil, $7 million ranch in Ojai, Calif. (The pregnant actress wed husband Jim Toth in March 2011 at the rustic chic estate, recently featured in ELLE Decor.)

As Pattinson attempts to relax chez Witherspoon, he is, according to another source, “a total mess . . . He’s questioning everything.”

An “inconsolable” Stewart, meanwhile, has been reaching out via texts and phone calls. “She’s dying to save the relationship. It’s the only thing she cares about,” a Stewart source says.

Indeed, Pattinson, who fell for his Twilight costar nearly five years ago, “doesn’t know what to do.” says a concerned friend.

[From Us Weekly]

Us Weekly also promises to reveal “how he found out” about Kristen’s affair, and they’ll reveal “Stewart’s suspicious behavior before her fling was discovered.” Basically, there are more shoes to drop. I’m glad that Rob reached out to Reese, and I think it’s nice that she’s all, “Sure, come and stay at my ranch! The chickens will soothe you.” Because she has a chicken coop on her farm.

Other news…Rob was supposed to do press for Cosmopolis in NYC, but Us Weekly says Rob has cancelled some press appearances. But his rep tells Gossip Cop, “No confirmed engagements have been canceled. Any reports to the contrary are inaccurate.” It might not matter – various outlets report that Rob’s support base of young Twihard girls remains unshaken, and many of his fans are planning to boycott any and all of Kristen’s future films. Hopefully, those fans will show Sparkle-solidarity by going to see his little art-house movies.

As for Kristen, Radar says that she’s using Jodie Foster as a shoulder to cry on (lip-bite on?). A source tells Radar, “As soon as she heard the news, Jodie contacted Kristen to offer her support. They have been close friends since they starred opposite each other in the 2002 movie Panic Room, and Jodie is a mother-like figure to her. Jodie told Kristen to take no notice of the media bashing and said if she wanted to cry her heart out to her she’s always available. Jodie loved Rob and is disappointed with Kristen for cheating on him. However, she knows at 22, she’s still very young and unfortunately people make mistakes in life. She thinks Kristen will learn from this and will only grow into a more mature person because of it. She certainly has no intention of turning her back on Kristen during such a difficult period in her life.” Blah.

We will have more Twihard Meltdown news later in the day!

    Awww he is Chilling with Reece! this is why I love Rob <3

  2. Valerie says:

    It is going to be SO HILARIOUS seeing them together on the red carpet for their new movie coming up. Can’t wait. Rob, I love you.

    • Amea says:

      As much as I think this cheating scandal–and the heartbreak resulting from it–is real, I still think that by the time November comes around (or whenever they are scheduled to start their promo tour from Breaking Dawn II), they will at least be on speaking terms again, enough to at least act like they are “working it out.” And once the promo tour is over, their true position as a couple will come to the light, whether it’s them truly staying together and working things out, or being done-zo. Yes, they’re real people with feelings, but they are also professional actors with a franchise on the line.Lucky for them it’s the last movie.

  3. Dorothy#1 says:

    Love these stories!! She is a fool to cheat on him, sooo cute. :)

    • S_____ says:

      Looks don’t matter. The woman who spent ‘quality time’ with my husband/father of my two children was [purely objectively] less attractive than I am. But, she made him feel like a god and I did not. So…

      • ORLY says:

        I s’pose you were committed to making him feel like a god? There’s no excuse for cheating. If one is unhappy, either work on the problem or move on.
        Just my opinion, of course.

      • S_____ says:

        At that point I suppose I was more committed to my kids.
        Classic story I guess.

      • CC says:

        Some people cheat just because they can, looks or even attentiveness have been proven not to be decising factors. Cheating has to do with a lot of stuff that most times it’s not related to the person being cheated on.

      • flan says:

        Don’t blame yourself, S.

        If he started living with her now, the treating like a god thing will seize quickly, when all his dirty socks are everywhere.

  4. Bubulle says:

    I still think is relationship with Stewart was a PR stunt to sell this awful movies, his Pr team is working over time trying to sell poor sparkle is heartbroken.

    • kellyo says:

      I completely agree.

    • Anname says:

      Rob does not have a PR person/team. He has an agent and a manager. He is not releasing statements or talking to the media. You are incorrect.

    • Kate says:

      If this were a PR strategy, we’d have pictures of him sitting forlornly on a beach gazing out at the ocean/sitting alone on a bench drinking a coffee with sad eyes by now.

      He wouldn’t be holed up somewhere, licking his wounds silently and out of sight.

      • gg says:

        He’s British – he will try and keep his own thoughts and image out of public view as much as possible. And I think that’s the smartest thing out there. Too bad the rest of the pack has to tweet every time they fart.

    • CC says:

      Could be, nothing is ever what it seems, especially in celeb relationships, or, if you wanna call them… “relationships”

    • ren says:

      totally agree with you this drama is just too perfect to be true.. and it’s all about money …

  5. cupidityrox! says:

    I think he’ll forgive her. We all make mistakes

    • Erinn says:

      And his mistake would be trusting her again.

    • CTgirl says:

      As someone else pointed out, a mistake is using salt instead of sugar. She made a decision. Totally different concept. This isn’t something that just happened to her. KS chose this path.

    • sallyreo says:

      I also think that he will forgive her.

      All of what has been said about him
      in Europe has been lies. It makes one wonder what is true and what is made up by the media.

      • Julie says:

        true is what we saw on the pictures. the other is 90% made up, they need to keep the story going.

        robet just sitting at home talking to a buddy isnt a good story when the buddy isnt famous. thats why witherspoon comes into the story (i wouldnt be surprised if we get another twist if no real news about them surfaces that her hubby is pissed that pattinson is there the whole time). same with moving out. i can totally see him throwing her out but those people are really rich there is no need to take action immediatly, you know as a regular couple you just have this one flat but he can stay everywhere around the world so i doubt anyone has really moved out yet.

        personally i think he will try to stay out of LA, just because its pap capital.

  6. CTgirl says:

    Like anyone in this situation he needs to take some time and figure out what he wants to do. Will he take her back or will he shred her sneakers in a wood chipper? Only time will tell . . .

  7. aquarius64 says:

    No matter on what you are on this issue, when there’s a major crisis is when you find out who your real friends are. Stewart’s going to need them…US Weekly is lauching Operation: Death by a 1000 Cuts on this mess.

    • Amea says:

      Seriously, and I think it’s a bit tactless for Us Weekly to basically gloat about breaking this story first and all the other tabloids are losers for even trying to do an inkling of reporting on THEIR story smh. Be a gossip mag, be a tabloid, report whatever celeb gossip you want, even if it’s hurtful like exposing cheating partners in a relationship. But don’t brag about your own magazine. Stick to the gossip.

      • keats says:

        Eh, US Weekly is getting a lot of flak from tweens in denial from these reports. If this is them twisting the knife, I like it.

      • flan says:

        Not to mention they even have a website where they post pics of how they hide US Weekly’s in stores, haha.

  8. marie says:

    Really, they dragged Jodie Foster into the story? I don’t buy that for a second..

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I believe it. Before this scandal broke I saw a clip of Jodie Foster saying thet Kristen is “like a daughter” to her. It’s not unimaginable to think that she reached out with a phonecall to Stew.

      Recall that Foster infamously supported Mel Gibson through his mess so she seems to have a thing for stray dogs (no offense to strays).

    • marie says:

      did not realize I posted this twice, stupid computer..

  9. Turtle Dove says:

    Here are the pictures.

    It totally looks like they know the photographer is there… weird.

    • Bad Irene says:

      Just looked at those photos and have to agree in some its looks like they are both looking right at the pap taking the shots,weird is right.

    • lisa2 says:

      I don’t think so. When you are outside talking to someone you look around at your environment. So if you are doing something wrong you look around a lot. At some point you look in the direction of the of a camera if it is pointing at you. There are pics of them not looking in that direction.

      People don’t do this for PR. The Twilight movies don’t need any stunts to get the fans to watch. If they wanted a PR move for the movie all they had to do was have Kristen walk out of a bridal shop, or Rob going into a jewelry store or have her wear a ring on her left hand or any stunning piece of jewelry. YOU don’t have her photographed in an embrace with a man 20+ years older and married with 2 children. That is not PR. and if it is (and no way it is) it was done badly.

      • Bad Irene says:

        Agree about it not being a pr stunt, if it was everyone involved would be out of work as it was so badly handled. It has been a lesson for a lot of people on how NOT to handle a pr disaster.

        Just thought the shots of them looking a the camera odd, also saw he was wearing his wedding ring when he was with KS, but guess it doesn’t mean much to him anyway.

      • Erinn says:

        Exactly. I mean, I have a pretty nice camera- nowhere near pap level, but it has a nice zoom lens, and I can get some pretty amazing pictures from pretty far away. And that lens is nowhere near as expensive as someone who gets paid to take photos would have.

        If you’re doing something wrong, you tend to glance around to check if anyone is around a lot. And being famous, there are a lot more people that could catch them. Heck, they might have heard something and looked in the direction of the noise. I really really doubt it’s a publicity stunt.

      • Julie says:

        everything you mention is right, it would be so easy to get some pr, kristen just needed to put something below her shirt and they would freak out if she was pregnant.(would also be a nice hint at the movie)

        what people also dont get with the whole “looking in the camera” besides the distance is that if it was staged, they would have never published the pictures where they are looking in the direction and/or kristen and rupert would know they were papped so they wouldnt look at the camera.

        nothing of this is pr. all i could think of would be robsten was pr but that still doesnt take away anything from the homewrecking of rupert and kristen.

      • normades says:

        ITA lisa2 and others.

      • normades says:

        No PR person in his/her right mind would have dreamed of this stunt. Way too risky/humiliating for everyone involved.

        They could have just gotten her a ring to set the Twihards on fire.

      • Aotearovian says:

        @normades: Totally right. The people insisting this is staged and organized baffle me (“something is off about these pics”: you’re damn right, it’s called infidelity and a 20-year age difference).

        I work in PR, and a stunt like this would get me fired and probably blacklisted.

      • flan says:

        Agree that it’s not a stunt.

        It devides their fans and made some shippers (people who like their relationship) jump ship. They only lose, not gain by this.

    • Turtle Dove says:

      I don’t have an amazing camera like a pap would, but it just seems to me that there would be nowhere to hide in that environment. A deserted road, an alley… I dunno…

      Oh well. I’m not overly invested in her. Never really liked her, or the whole Twilight thing…

      • Reece says:

        It’s the Hollywood Hills it’s all curvy, winding, and brushy. Plenty of places to hide. The pap could have gone past pulled off the side of the road and hiked back.
        Also probably why it’s the place KS & RS picked.

  10. lena says:

    It will be so interesting to see Pattinson and Stewart appear together to promote Breaking Dawn. Will they hug in order to be photographed like all the previous times? Will they stand next to each other for an interview? What about their body language?

    • normades says:

      haha! Taylor will have to stand in the middle.

    • Chicagogurl17 says:

      I said it before, if one of them doesn’t bow out of promotional tour, they will be split up for premieres. One does London, the other does France, on does LA, one does NYC and my bet is neither one stays for the movie, just the carpet.

    • flan says:

      I hope they’ll throw stuff at each other.

      Would be some real entertainment finally.

  11. marie says:

    Jodie Foster? Well that’s random..

    • Chatcat says:

      Marie…PR damage control. If you had to spin anything on a 22 y/o homewrecker, Jodi’s rep is a good one to use. This is a plant story by PR team period.

  12. Julie says:

    poor jodie. first mel gibson, now kristen stewart.

  13. corny says:

    Who gets the dog? Is it chilling will Reese too? I hope it doesn’t rebound.

  14. Phil says:

    Jodie foster isn’t random…she starred in the panic room with Kristen (who actually made facial expressions and acted in that movie). I don’t know why this article think its ‘blah’. I think it’s good that Kristen has some people she can rely on. It’s not like Jodie is agreeing with her actions, but she is supportive knowing that Kristen is 22 and the world is against her right now.

  15. Phil says:

  16. Jenny says:

    This story lacks “mystery”. There is no did they or didn’t they. The story is in how long “did they” and how the others involved (mostly Pattinson, since most people never heard of the director and his wife) will respond. This will probably not have a very long shelf life.

  17. n says:

    At this stage I don’t really know what to think about this whole drama but it doesn’t make sense -> I hate conspiracies but this looks to me like they knew there were being photographed, on one pic it almost looks like she’s telling him about the person taking a picture…
    and here
    also we really haven’t heard anything from Rob. He’s vanished and doesn’t want to comment on anything. Her apologising in such a not-normal-to-her way also doesn’t make sense at all.
    Do you remember when Joaquin Phoenix went crazy for a while because we was filming a documentary? I don’t know but I’m starting to see that maybe this has been planned from day one…and Sanders, Stewart, Rose & Pattinson are all taking part in this show…
    Just for the record. I’m not a fan of Sparkles and Co movies at all but I am a great fan of gossip :) all gossip :)

    • Julie says:

      why would they risk damaging the lives of the children? why would they publish the pictures where they look at the cam if it was all set up?

      • n says:

        I don’t know to all your questions – sorry.

        On some pictures it looks like they were looking exactly into the camera – maybe it’s just a conicidence…I really don’t know.

        It all seems really weird to me. This whole incident…I know maybe I’m just overthinking it…

    • T.C. says:

      Liberty Ross and her two kids are in on the stunt? You think they agreed to be humiliated to help Twilight out? Rupert Sanders is going to get fired from directing the Snow White sequel so how does that family gain from this stunt?

      The paps were a mile away. Rupert and Kscrew were feeling guilty, looking around so the cameras caught them dead on.

    • renata says:

      n, I think you’re confusing ‘looking at a camera’ with them just generally looking around… these paps are using long-distance telescopic lenses. They can be up in a tree a few hundred yards away and the subjects of their photos can’t possibly spot them. The paps also use ‘fast-burst’ mode which for example could be capturing 2, maybe more, photos every second– when put together they look like a movie. When you photograph people using those techniques you could wind up with pics of them looking in 20 different directions in the course of a few minutes.

      BTW, Kaiser!!! — You had me laughing my tail off with that “Poor Sparkles, crying sparkle-tears as he sparkles all alone.” Really funny stuff–thank you!

  18. Kimlee says:

    The Radar story has BS writen all over it,

    How dose Radar know word for word what Jodie foster said to Kristen but they didn’t know that she was sleeping with a married man for months.

  19. Tiffany27 says:

    They should just end it. When you lose the trust in a relationship it can become unbearable. They’re young, they’ll find other people.

  20. Roma says:

    All I got out of this story was “Kristen Stewart and Jodie Foster, hooking up!”

    Maybe I just make up my own stories.

  21. Jade says:

    I’m still shocked by this whole thing. I can’t believe it’s only been a week since this broke out.

  22. Mirella says:

    I’m so sick of the ‘she’s so young’ excuse. She’s 22, not 12. And yes we all make mistakes, but their’s is life altering, so no, I can’t find it in me to feel sorry for her or the director.

    Before her fans yell at me, yes I’ve made mistakes, no I’m not perfect, but I’ve never broken up a family, or hurt anyone else like this.

  23. Lila says:

    God Rpattz is responding exactly like i thought he would, pathetically. The fact that liberty is holding herself together better than sparkles makes me eye roll him. Memo to Rob, you arent the first or last to deal with this situation. Quit milking it with the whole devastated, completely in love BS. It does you no favors. Be a man.

    • Tiffany27 says:

      So he’s not allowed to be hurt, devasted, and destroyed when his girlfriend of 3 years cheated on him because he’s a man? I’m confused by your comment.

    • jess says:

      Liberty HAS to hold herself together for her kids sake. Rob is aloud to be upset, Im sure that the tabloids are exaggerrating a bit.

    • mia girl says:

      Lila – how exactly do you know that Liberty is holding herself together?

    • Julie says:

      be a man? how about you cleaning the house, you are a woman afterall.
      see what i did there? so much for stereotypes.

      if you havent noticed he hasnt made any statement and no one knows what is actions are, its all just gossip now. he could be listening to adele crying his heart out, not caring at all or smashing walls.
      same goes for libery, we dont know, maybe she went beserk on ruperts balls.
      all we know that both liberty and robert havent made a statement or were seen outside (kristen was also not seen, only rupert)

    • Courtney says:

      Thank you! I love rob and find him very charming. But when I got cheated on by a long term boyfriend, you know what I had to do the next day? Go to work! What happened was terrible but these celebs are so self-pitying any chance they get.

      That being said, he might just be avoiding the tabloids… Which is the more likely situation.

      • Anname says:

        Courtney – you didn’t have people trying to take your picture and make judgements on you while making your way into work, the entire world wasn’t aware of your situation (perhaps humilitation as well), and commenting on it. It’s a bit different, don’t you think.

      • Julie says:

        you cant compare that. they have to pretend to be a loving couple with a baby at their work. thats way worse than going to the office.

        also im sure not everyone in your office knew the next day, with both of them the whole world knows. you can move away, kristen will always be known as a cheater, it will be one of the firsr things that comes up when you google her.

        they earn loads of cash with being in the spotligh and i dont want to feel too bad for them but you cant compare it, there are huge downsides and this is one of them.

        oh and if you think cheating has bad consequences, just dont do it.

    • Ann says:

      Actually, Rob hasn’t responded at all. Hasn’t said a word. Don’t confuse the bs the tabloids “report” with what he is actually doing.

    • gg says:

      You actually begrudge a world famous actor guy who was about to ask his girlfriend to marry him being upset his world famous actor girlfriend cheated on him with a director twice her age with kids and the world is seeing the photos and tabloids are making up fictional grease to smear them all with?

      You must have a heart of ice.

      Let the damn guy grieve for what he lost. I feel very bad for him. Being cheated on is maybe the worst thing to go through besides death of a loved one, and it has been shown that it is a death of sorts, having to cut that person you loved out of your life because you can’t trust them anymore. It’s devastating.

  24. jess says:

    Watch Kristens crazy fans twist this story around and say that Rob is having an affair with Reese. They are so desperate to make it look like its his fault.

    I always thought that the Uhaul pic was staged. I hope who ever paid for that pic got there money back.

    My prediction is that Rob and Kristen will get back together but not until Twilight is over, probably next year.

  25. Monkey Jim says:

    I’ve reached saturation point with this story. So every media outlet was blindsided by it, yet all of a sudden they all have sources?!! Okaaay. Unless there’s new pics, or a ‘rep’ comments, obviously no one knows anything.

  26. Aria says:

    Do you remember the movie “American Sweethearts” or something starring CZJ and Julia Roberts? There was a similiar situation: a very famous and loved celebrity couple broke up because she (KS) cheated with a costar (director?) and everything goes crazy. I guess BD2 tour will be exactly like that.

  27. Jano1981 says:

    I had no idea kstew was the kid in panic room. When I watched that movie years ago I was distracted by her awkwardness. I just thought she was a strange choice.

  28. jen says:

    Rob I love u but please don’t be so coldhearted forgive kstew give her one more change if u truly love her

  29. jamminatorr says:

    I am of many minds of this whole thing… She’s really young. She made a stupid mistake that she should suffer the consequences for, but at the same time because of the media scrutiny this might be career-ending. I would hate to have to be continually responsible for some of the decisions I made at 22. Being that they’re both so young it makes no sense for them to get back together… I hope they don’t. Cheating is really, really hard to go back on and its just not worth it for them considering the stage in their relationship. It also really annoys me that Rupert will come out unscathed essentially…. the men always get the better deal!

    BTW I can totally see sparkles as a “i have lots of friends that are girls, and not a lot that are guys” kind of guy. Not surprised he’s hanging with Reese.

    Edit: I’m not going to lie, when I first saw the initial story I immediately thought “Katie Holmes must be so happy!” The whole cheating thing has derailed Cruise’s post-divorce PR launch.

    • ORLY says:

      “BTW I can totally see sparkles as a “i have lots of friends that are girls, and not a lot that are guys” kind of guy. Not surprised he’s hanging with Reese.”

      Actually, sparkles has a tonne of guy friends, Marcus Foster, Bobby Long, Tom Sturridge, Sam Bradley etc, etc.
      They’re the Britpack or whatever the media and fans have dubbed them.

      • jess says:

        I think Rob is the kinda person where he just makes friends with everybody. He seems to be very friendly and nice to everyone.

      • ORLY says:

        I was only referring to the friends he has had before fame. I don’t know much about any new friends he has made. His public persona seems very friendly, true.

  30. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    Hey wait! There will be more affair revealing news in coming days from US Weekly? OMG! Can’t wait for more! Hehehe!

  31. Adeli says:

    Seriously, people are still talking about this being a PR stunt? It’s an outlandish theory that makes no sense for any of the players involved, especially at such a critical time for BD2 promotion. And it also does nothing for Sanders’ fledgling career as a director (I think he’s pretty much done as far as feature films are concerned). I think the purpose of PR is to cast people in a positive light. And this situation is overwhelmingly negative and damaging to both Kristen’s and Rupert’s reputations. I’m pretty sure Kristen’s career will stall for a while. And you know that’s gonna burn her for sure, cause she’s passionate about acting (notwithstanding the fact that she’s bad at it), and she’s also a very ambitious girl. This is not good for her AT ALL.

    Not everything is a conspiracy. Sometimes, people are just THAT stupid and careless. Also, she’s used to having the paparazzi be visible and in her face all the time. She just didn’t think of the possibility that they might use stealth-like methods to follow her. And obviously, they were well out of sight. There’s a story about how this wasn’t just a pap’s lucky day. Apparently Us Weekly has been on this story for a while. They were tipped off about her and Sanders and they’d been following her for a while, and on this day they got the goods.

    I hope that poor Sparkles is okay, wherever he is. So far, he’s handled this awful situation in the most dignified manner. Can’t say the same for Kristen and her PR team with all the self-serving BS that’s been coming from them. Playing the PR game doesn’t seem to be Rob’s style. Good for him, for maintaining his integrity in this sordid mess. Besides being heartbroken, how utterly embarassing this whole thing must be for him. She’s emasculated him in front of the entire world. That will be very hard to forgive, I’m sure.

    • Kate says:

      Agreed with all of this.

      Occam’s Razor. It’s exactly what it looks, no big conspiracy called for.

        I tottaly believe this. I don’t think the pap just “got lucky”. I think he was on a mission to get proof.

    Celebitchy should only cover the aspects of the story that relate to Bear.
    He’s the best looking, most innocent and compelling of this whole group.

  33. epiphany says:

    I don’t think anyone is saying the affair with Rupert Sanders is a PR stunt, they’re saying ( and it’s been around for a while) that the relationship between KStew and Sparkles is a PR stunt. They are obviously genuine, close friends, but no real romance. She had an adulterous hookup and got caught. Their collective PR probably thought, “oh sh–, how do we handle this?” Turned it into a lover’s betrayal – that’s even better PR than a Twihard romance! Sparkles had to move out of their house and go into hiding to play the part of a brokenhearted boyfriend; it’s all part of the PR game, at least that’s word on the street.

    • Anname says:

      What street are you on??

      If you follow Rob and/or Kristen closely, it is fairly obvious they had a real relationship. Not everything is a game, actual feelings were hurt in this. All this talk of fakery cheapens the situation even more.
      And just a note, Rob doesn’t have a PR person at all. He and Angelina Jolie are a few of the hold-outs in not having a dedicated PR person team.

    • Adeli says:

      Oh geez, not this fake relationship crap again. It was a real relationship. Anname is right, all this talk of fakery just cheapens the situation even further. Also correct: Rob does not have a PR team.

        Gotta give these conspiracy people points for sheer tenacity.
        *shakes head*

      • Chatcat says:

        @Shannon…I shake my head that there are so many folks that blend two fictional characters with two real people to the point that they confuse the fictional characters nature with that of the person playing the part. They think that Kristen is Bella and Rob is Edward. How sad and pathetic is that!

      • Shannon1972 says:

        @chatcat: you’re right, it’s beyond pathetic. this whole sordid mess has been short on reality from the beginning. Starting with that bizarre apology from “Kristen” to Rob. (I think it’s safe to assume at this point that she didnt write it.)
        Didn’t it sound more like an apology to her fans? It may be the one thing her PR people called correctly..knowing the fans would blur the line between actor and character.

    • normades says:

      No, a lot of people on these boards have been saying Stewpert is a PR stunt.

      A lot of people in the past have said Robsten is a pr stunt.

      Between the 2 I believe Stewpert is the “realer” couple because you can see the sexy tension, while Robsten always seemed too cold and calculated to me.

    • barb says:

      Blind gossip says they are a faux relationship

  34. lucy2 says:

    This has turned into the battle of the PR agents.

    • Anname says:

      No, it’s a battle of fake tabloid articles. And randoms who want to insert themselves into the buzz with “insider knowledge”. I don’t know what Kristen’s people are doing, but Rob’s not talking, and I don’t think Liberty or Rupert are either.

  35. Hope says:

    “Poor Sparkles, crying sparkle-tears as he sparkles all alone.” LOL!!! I had been crying over a stupid fight my boyfriend and I had and this phrase, all by its lonesome, broke through all that tension and frustration in a moment of pure hilarity. Thanks, Kaiser. It’s writing like this that makes Celebitchy my go-to morning site :)

  36. sallyreo says:

    @ Julie

    You are so right, the U-Haul truck, just like regular people?

    I usually hire a moving company to move me and Sparkles went and rented a U-Haul truck. Also, rented a storage unit to store his stuff, while his heart is ripped out. He also went to Europe, went out with a stranger, played video games and some one
    saw him having a good time at a bar.

  37. The Original Denise says:

    The Jodie Foster portion of the story is not true; they are not close and only ran into each other after 10 years at some award show when they were both on stage presenting, and it was chilly.

  38. FrouFrou says:

    Angelina Jolie must be fuming, first Kristen dethrones her as the highest paid actress and now she has taken over her title as the world’s most famous homewrecker.

  39. mia girl says:

    I saw pictures of Resse’s ranch in Elle and I certainly wouldn’t mind a stay there. Too bad Rob’s stay came by a public humiliation. :(

    Lainey just posted some of the US story details and they claim that Rob was seen out for a run on the estate. It’s good to know he’s not under the covers 24/7 with liquor bottles and empty Twinkie wrappers strewn around him.

    I hope for his sake lots of people go see Cosmopolis in a couple of weeks (although it’s specialty box office so only opening in NY and LA initially – I can’t see it). That would be some consolation. I sure bet Cronnenberg did not bargin for all this drama when he cast Rob.

  40. jojo says:

    the problem is, there must be a reason why she felt compelled to cheat to begin with. Something was unsatisfying with her relationship with rob.

    why he would take her back at this point is beyond me. She’ll always be an actress, working with other actors/directors/prety people. How can he ever trust her to go on location to shoot a film ever again?

    • Julie says:

      happy people also cheat.

      • gg says:

        this ^. People get lured in when the other party is persistent enough. Check out Pattie Boyd Harrison and Eric Clapton’s romance history. Eric would not let up and he won. And when he got her, he quickly lost interest and divorced her.

        Some people are addicted to the chase because it is exciting. But the excitement can’t last, so they move on to another cheating partner.

    • Kate says:

      There’s been quite a lot of research on infidelity, and while some people do cheat because the relationship has become very unhappy, just as many do because the excitement and glamour of a new attraction overwhelms them, as the day-to-day of domestic life can’t supply that. It doesn’t at all mean the base relationship was inadequate, though it’s claimed they often start to withdraw from that relationship in the early, emotional stages of the affair, and then later if they do leave permanently (most don’t) will see that as being “unhappy”. It’s actually really interesting to read about, because the patterns are so clear, apparently.

      I agree that there’s no way this could work now, though. Their jobs mean he’d never be able to trust her again – it’s part of the industry that people form intense emotional bonds in a very short timeframe, and while living away from their partners. It wouldn’t be tenable. Particularly as this affair didn’t happen against a background of small kids, no time together, etc etc. It happened when they first moved in together and things should have been all sparkly and shiny and new.

    • Chatcat says:

      Honey, selfish people require no reason to do what they want, when they want, with whom they want, regardless of who and how it affects them.

  41. Reece says:

    Yes ladies he’s staying with me! I’m giving him plenty of comfort. ;) Us Reece’s are good people.
    Honestly I’ve always thought their relationship was one of convenience. They both were thrown into this insane existence and what do you do but latch on to the only person there who can sympathize. Add in youth and it was never really based on a stable relationship. It may not seem like it now but he’ll (they’ll, even the homewrecker) be better off moving on.

    Ok back to the snarky laughing!

  42. Melissa says:

    Hey – maybe Jodie can hook Kristen up with a new guy – I hear she has a single Australian friend she’s tight with.

  43. cherryberry says:

    I think rob needs to pull out his guitar and use his unhappiness for inspiration. And he should stop reading all this frenzied speculation. It will simply escalate until something more scandalous rears it’s head (like snookie’s carnal treasure on the dance floor)

  44. cherryberry says:

    @anname maybe the buzz would die if he simply said something? It will only be more uncomfortable and pressured once they have to start doing press together. Hollywood’s a small world…

    • Ann says:

      He shouldn’t say a word. Just maintain the high road and conduct himself with class. Think Sandra Bullock after her slimy husband cheated on her with a freak show tramp.

    • Anname says:

      Cherryberry -I can’t see him ever commenting, I just don’t think it’s his way. The fact he doesn’t have a PR rep, with his level of fame, speaks volumes about the way he handles his life. Do I think it would help him? Eh, not really. It would just add more fuel to the fire.

  45. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    The only “conspiracy” that may have gone on is the source of US Weekly’s tip(s). Seems like it must have been someone who knew, who disliked KS & how she was treating Rob, & wanted to see it exposed in the most damaging & irrefutable way possible. Someone wanting to go much further than merely dropping a rumor that KS was having an affair. Something that would make it impossible for Rob to not see or KS deny. This is the story I would live to know.

    • Ann says:

      That is an interesting question. Probably not a friend of Kristen, Rob, Liberty or Rupert. Too much resulting hurt for a real friend to do it.

      Perhaps someone saw a previous tryst and tipped off US to get a payoff. Or someone with a vendetta against Kristen, who wasn’t a friend of Rob’s.

  46. giddy says:

    Something is really bothersome about this story. In a recent interview, KS was driving the reporter around in a nondiscript rented car because she said the black mini was a pap troll. Said she didn’t drive the mini anymore because all the paps knew it and followed her. So, on the day she meets with Rupert she “happens” to be driving the black mini? Not only driving the “pap-mobile” but driving in a way that draws attention to herself (pulling a 180 which the pap said seemed “odd” and then folowed her) and drives off to some random location?

    The Robsten relationship is not a romantic one. Maybe never was. Who knows. Who cares. She pings my gaydar — Rob too. And while it seems truly crazy that any parents would willingly do something that would put their young children at risk — these people (in HW) really have a very different moral scale. Bearding is the “norm” (just ask Reese) so the muppets keep buying tickets. It’s a business relationship. Period. And while she may have upset the business relationship — it may have been planned that way and will work in their favor. It’s the same chit that wall street banksters did to sell subprime mortgages. Likewise, those idiot Twihards keep buying.

    • Nicolette says:

      I agree with a lot of what you said. I’m not buying any of this. Just like I’ve never bought the story that Rob and Kristen were a couple. Friends? Yes definitely, but anything romantic not so much. Pure BS cooked up by Summit and the powers that be to make money hand over fist. I think they will “reunite” just in time for BD2. Wouldn’t be surprised if an “engagement” were part of the plan.

      He doesn’t ping my gaydar, but she does and so does Taylor Lautner. I think she’s bi personally. Truth be told, I am a fan of the series (please with hold the moans) and I do like them both. I hope that whatever this mess really is, it will end soon for them. I’d love for them to expose all the lies, but I doubt that’ll happen.

  47. LittleDeadGirl says:

    I can’t wait for the akward press tour during Twilight.

  48. Jennifer12 says:

    1. This isn’t a PR stunt; they’re trying to spin it to get things better, but it certainly wasn’t planned. 2. I wonder if Kristen would be so upset if Rupert didn’t go FLYING back to his wife. She left her ex-boyfriend for Rob. 3. I think Kristen is trying to set herself up as Rob’s victim now; she apologized so many times and kept calling and tried and tried and he STILL wouldn’t forgive her.

  49. Kosmos says:

    He’ll be okay in time. He’s famous and he’s got money and he’s good looking. He’ll find someone else who is ready for him. I think it’s a good thing it came out because I don’t think K was ready for this long term. If the paps didn’t catch them in the act, she would probably still be cheating on Rob :-( ( So, it’s good that it happened this way. Reese was a victim of cheating, too, with her ex. Break it off with her, Rob, and move on.

  50. another nina says:

    Jeez, Rob needs to control all his melodramatic sources, they are really riding wild in People – wtf with all these “devastated- heart ripped off-he is in hiding” and shit quotes??? It’s a pathetic stroke, you can’t recover off, in public opinion. Yes, the skank has cheated. Yes, you were blindsided. Yes, it did not worked out. Yes, shit happens, and you’ll survive. Where is a normal strong-willed man behind all this? It’s just some melodramatic f-n puddle. Seriously, both PR teams are amateurs.
    If I see him with red eyes at press event, I’ll throw up.

    • Anname says:

      Rob needs to control his sources? No one in his camp is talking, it’s tabloid stuff. Logical assumptions -It’s easy enough to say someone is brokenhearted and devestated when cheated on… Exactly how should he stop these types of stories?

      • another nina says:

        People’s sources are usually PR reps. All articles about major players are at a minimum discussed with their reps. He does not have a rep, so they are talking with his management.
