Robert Pattinson is already in Australia! Did you know that? If you’re a Twihard, you already knew that. He’s already begun to film The Rover, and he’s already attracted the attention of the Aussie Twihards AND the Aussie police. According to Hollywood Life, Sparkles has been cautioned by the police because he wasn’t wearing a helmet while riding a bike. HARDCORE! That is one thing I’ll give Robert – he’s not trying to convince anyone that he’s some kind of “badass”. He’s not the trashing-hotel-rooms type. He’s the type to get cautioned for not wearing his bike helmet.
But here’s the real question – is Kristen Stewart putting everything on hold to make this relationship work while Rob is half-way around the world? Sources say that Kristen is not in Australia, but she’s still trying to keep Rob on a tight leash – and it’s not working.
Kristen Stewart is fuming with Robert Pattinson for not giving her enough attention while he’s Down Under filming, a source tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. The On the Road actress has been missing Robert, 26, since he flew to Australia to shoot futuristic western The Rover, and because of the time difference the pair has hardly spoken to each other.
Kristen, 22, feels Robert’s neglecting her, according to the source, and has told him she wants him to check-in more often!
“With Robert out the country, a thousand miles away working in Australia, Kristen has been missing him badly,” the source reveals. “The time difference is 18-and-a-half hours between Los Angeles and Adelaide, where Robert is, so it’s proving a difficulty for them to speak to each other regularly and easily. Robert is often starting his working day when Kristen is busy, and vice versa. And he’s not the best at sending texts, or keeping in touch in the first place.”
“Kristen is angry with him because she thinks he’s not giving her enough attention – it’s absolutely killing her. So, she’s told him off and said she wants more messages, updates…. Anything…. so she doesn’t feel forgotten about!”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Kristen has also been getting frustrated with Robert for his reluctance to fully forgive her and re-commit to their relationship following her cheating scandal. Robert has been playing hard to get since rekindling their romance, and the actress is starting to get annoyed because she feels that she’s been putting in all the effort to make it work out between them.
“Rob and Kristen are at a crossroads right now as to whether he finally accepts they are back together or not,” a source previously told Radar.
Haha. Sure baby, it’s just the time difference. Sure, I’ll check in later, no problem, of course I’m not spending time with any of these pretty Aussie girls. No, never! I wish… I wish Sparkles would just grow a set and break it off with Kristen for good. I like the idea that finally – maybe! – Robert isn’t “the one who loves too much” and he’s actually giving Kristen a taste of her own medicine. But mostly I just wish he would dump her and move on.

The reconciliation is just for the image purposes and those DVD sales, when that is out so will be this annoying showmance.
I disagree with you and so do a million other people that can’t wait to buy the dvd whether Rob and Kristen are together or not. The dvd will sell as usual. Stop beating a dead horse.
Both KS and RP are ridiculous in the most wonderful gossipy way. He’s proved that he is just the best-est boyfriend ever by swallowing his humiliation like a champ and looking more and more beat down every day. KS still doesn’t shower, still hasn’t mastered articulate speech, and still hasn’t come to grips with the fact that maybe she made a teeny weeny little mistake by getting down in a Mini-Cooper with her director. They’re tragic but so seriously amusing.
I’m guessing the whole thing will drag on until the the dvd sales (and back end profits for Stewart and Pattinson) finally dwindle to nothingness. People who say they have no vested interest (and sham romance to keep the twihards happy) in the profits don’t know anything about Hollywood.
Hence the faux relationship that seems to be crushing Sparkles’ soul a little bit at a time…
Sorry – I should have said fauxmance…
He should leave her. Now. Right? I think it’s a little too late for damage control on this one.
Is it really worth the money or the time to be known as the man who licks Kristen Stewart’s armpits? As she cheats on him? In a mini cooper?
LMAO. Wth is he thinking?
but c’est la vie, while r/k may have a vested interest in profits, Twilight as a franchise ultimately doesn’t need to have a vested interest in their relationship status. Because since the second movie of the franchise, the box office for the franchise has been almost identical. Ditto dVD sales. The overall analysis as a result is that twihards stuck with the franchise throughout, but the franchise never gained new followers. In other words, this elaborate conspiracy theory that they are chained together for the sake of sales and box office simply doesn’t hold water. They could be fake they could be real(or more likely, may have something that’s a bit too lurid for 12 year old twihards to understand), but the notion they are contractually stuck together for the sake of the franchise and have been living a day to day shame to appease fans and their wallets for years now is just as much a fairy tale as the notion they are eachother’s one true love and are broken for time and all eternity.
don’t buy the “dvd sales” theory at all. Maybe they are fake, maybe they are real, that’s up for debate. But Twilight as a franchise has proven for several movies now that they don’t need “robsten” to keep the boat afloat. The box office for movies 2-5 have been almost identical–there’s a rabid fanbase, and no one else is intereszted in seeing the movie. It didn’t gain followers, but it didn’t lose fans either for four movies straight. Ditto for dvd sales. So all these people arguing that whatever is going on is for dvd sales are fanfasizing–these two have no bearing overall how much money gets made in the end. that’s a fallacy.
i believed that they broke after X-mas when his sisters refused to celebrate it with her
Wait what??? DO tell! I’ve never heard of this! I thought they did spend Christmas in London with his family?
LOL There is only a one photo of them together on December 27 and they are meters away from each other while Rob prefers talk with another woman. She was in London because being in the same city means epic love. They spent Christmas apart and NYE too. It seems incredible that people may not know that every time they make circus,there is photos. If there is no photos, they have not been together anywhere.
They spent NYE together in England like they always do with a bunch of their closest friends. There’s a picture of a smiling Rob and Kristen posing with the staff at a restaurant in England on New Years Eve day. The restaurant even posted the pic on their facebook.
I’m sure she’s been texting Rupert a lot more than Robert these last few days.
I doubt Kristen has the stomach to endure another slut shaming experience again. She is not texting Rupert.
Somehow, I think she does. Kristen does what Kristen wants. Didn’t we learn that when she slept with a married man and let him hump her ass in broad daylight?
She does have that Cartman-South-Park “I do wut I want” but I think Mr. Sanders is quite over her considering the fall out.
I see her texting something like “sorry about your marriage Rup, wanna skype tonight and see my new boobs?”.
It’s funny because they definitely had chemistry. Those pics of them embracing and their fingers entwined… There were feelings there! I’m sure it was more than lust and she never looked happier.
But I really doubt they would go for it again.
I know. The way she was stroking his hands and he was kissing her shoulder, and his dick was permanantly pressed into her ass. I think they fell in love, and Kristen was taking so much heat she had to get Rob back to save her career.
Okaaayy- what am I missing here?
Both are irritating, KTwat more so than RPatz. But listen, who really believes that these two are an item?
I have thought forever that these two functioned as beards for the other. What chemistry are you guys talking bout???
Her chemistry with Rupert, not Rob.
Ahhhh-Tessa, thanks for the clarification.
You know what, I never really checked out those pictures, I assumed you meant K & RP.
For real though, do people really think KS & RP are actually an item? Most people I know sort of ridicule Twitards who really believe those two are coupled up. Whoops, apologies to the Twifans, my bad.
I just wish he would dump her ass already and Kristen can go away forever. She’s the worst. I can’t stand her.
He is never going to dump her. He has already been humiliated in public by her affair but he stayed. A man that stays like that is too emotionally attached. He is whipped. She will eventually find a jump off on her next movie set then leave him.
Unfortunately, I have to agree. This relationship will only end when she finds his replacement. I’m hoping it’s going to be Rupert cause if we have to wait til she makes a movie again, it’s going to take forever.
Yeah I always thought it would be over when she moved on to someone else. Rob is too attached.
I hope that Rob is boning HIS director.
David Michod is really hot
Yes! He’s smoking hot and wicked talented.
Why would he do that when his mystery blonde is much prettier? And then he’s got the big date with JLaw to look forward to, right?
Is that a red mark on her stomach (on the pic with the white bustier)?
Anyway, the dude is working, key word here. And if she really wants to be with him, it’s not like she can’t fly to Oz can she? So it makes more sense that from the “relationship” or whatever that is, both have other commitments, work or else.
Just move on Rob. You have a very busy year. Perfect time for a break up.
I do believe Robsten will be no more in the next few weeks. That relationship has run its course.
Swear to God, I can’t imagine she gives a sh*t about anyone but herself. Rob is growing on me! (Not in a Long-for-his-Dong kind of way) 😛
He’s really funny and seems very gentle and sweet. Just an all around nice British guy. And then there’s Kristen his complete opposite: Humorless, gruff, bitchy. Do not get it.
You know the old saying: opposites attract.
I do like his snide humor. You wouldn’t think it would be there but it’s quite snarky. I enjoy it even if I despise the Twilight movies.
I loved the way he threw shade at her during the Cosmopolis promos. “Cat lovers are sociopaths” and the dogging story are the best 😆
“Robert is often starting his working day when Kristen is busy”
lmao, busy doing what exactly? F*cking Rupert?
Funny how all the shitty media like Gossip Cop, Lainey, E!… always defend her. They always have excuses for her. She is not working but Ruth, her publicist, has something to do to put her in a good place. She is nothing without Rob. Kristen Stewart: the homewrecker desperat for PRsten circus.
exactly busy doing what or rather WHO ?
She is officially a homewrecker. She is desperate for good press and Rob is happy in Oz. The dvd comes out in March so she will fly to Oz in February. BD 2 needs it and she too. Her reputation is worst than ever and she dies for attention. This PR relationship is embarrassing.
What excuse will some of you use when the BD2 dvd is released in a few months and they’re still together? I have to lol when I see the break up date getting pushed back each time a predicted break up milestone comes and goes without any break up.
Let me guess…the 10th Anniversary Deluxe Collector’s Edition dvd box set is next prediction if break up fails to happen with upcoming BD2 dvd release. LOL
Is them being publicly together the only thing that matters not that she is a godawful actress with no job, how will she find an excuse to be seen at public functions or are you content with her being on Leann Rimes level now?
Kristen on LeeAnn Rimes level? Um, where is Kristen’s twitter account filled with self taken bikini shots or pics and tweets professing her undying love for Rob? LeeAnn publicizes her relationship with Eddie and self promotes her bikini body every chance she gets on twitter. Don’t forget how LeeAnn also has the paps on speed dial whenever she attends Eddie’s kids’ soccer games to prove what a great stepmom she is. LeeAnn is all about self promotion and her twitter account and pap pic photo ops are proof.
Kristen placed herself into another woman’s marriage, which is now over by the way. She’s not better than Leann. You can think she is, but they’re both morally bankrupt selfish narcissists.
Yes, both Kristen and LeeAnn cheated with married men and it’s a terrible thing that should never have happened. But LeeAnn continued her affair and ended up marrying Eddie. Kristen ended hers with Rupert and was able to repair her relationship with Rob. LeeAnn loves the media attention she gets and literally runs towards the paps for a photo op while Kristen hates the media intrusion and literally runs away the paps when she sees them.
I’m sorry, was I the only one paying attention while Kristen went on a half naked tour and posed for 30 magazine covers between 2011 and 2012 and signed a perfume contract? There’s more than one way to court media attention. Kristen does it just as much, if not more, than most.
Kristen was promoting 2 movies back-to-back plus a fragrance around the same time. Interviews, magazine covers, red carpet premieres, talk show appearances, fashion show invites, etc are all part of promotion. She’s not the only actor to participate in all of the above mentions used to promote a film. The fact that she was promoting 2 movies which came out so closely together kept her in the spotlight longer than usual.
If she didn’t wanted it, she wouldn’t have a fragrance deal in the first place. And wouldn’t sign to do another blockbuster despite Twiligh (SWATH).
But whatever, you’re a fan and she’s perfect and hates de media and is original and blablabla.
Um, wow, you really don’t get it, do you? If Kristen didn’t like attention, she wouldn’t do it, period. She must like it, hence everything she does to stay in the spotlight. Taking on a fragrance campaign and voluntarily posing for a superfluous amount of covers, and wearing outfits she KNOWS people are going to talk about the next day, is all in an effort to be noticed, it’s courting attention, it’s a game she plays, and she plays it hard. You can pretend she doesn’t, but facts are facts. If she wanted to be more elusive, if she didn’t want to be out there, she wouldn’t be, plain and simple. She does.
What are you, Michele, her agent or something? You make a career out of defending this slut. She should pay you a salary.
Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron, Brad Pitt, Jude Law, Dakota Fanning, Marion Cotillard,Julia Roberts, Emma Stone and many other famous celebs are all currently promoting designer fragrances/cosmetics and in Jennifer’s case, Dior handbags. Are you saying all of these actors are big famewhores for doing the same thing Kristen is doing with Balenciaga perfume?
No, but they are not trying to evade attention like Kristen, or you actually, claim she is. She wants attention. She doesn’t hate it. Period.
No Janet, I’m not Kristen’s agent. I’m also not a Twihard or even an overly invested, Kristen-hating Rob fan. I’m a fan of both Rob and Kristen, that’s all. I’m currently not working so I can spend more time at home with my child. I just happen to have more time these days to spend here. Sorry, I’m just a stay-at-home mom at the moment and a Kristen and Rob fan with no professional connections to either one of them.
This dude’s eyebrows kill me. He did not look good at the golden globes. He needs longer hair and a fuller face to look decent. And a beard because it hides most of the fug.
And what in the world is that maxi pad thing Kristen has on ? Balenciaga is just so awful these days. It’s sad.
I don’t believe this story tbh. I don’t believe any story where Kristen is trying harder than Rob in the relationship. Kristen is a boss bitch and she runs the relationship. Robert knows the deal. Kristen just got that p*ssy power. Some girls have that. No matter what they do to a man, their vag is like Jake gyllenhaal in Brokeback Mountain, dudes just can’t quit it. I bet she makes him bow down to her every night after he hits it. She’s just a boss like that.
Robsten needs to be broken already so that Rupsten can get together. Robert can get with Frank Ocean or something…
OK Rupert, don’t worry , she’s just around the corner waiting for you in her minicooper, for round 2!
Rob was on numerous best dressed lists for the Golden Globes. His eyebrows are no bigger than Daniel Radcliffe’s, Billy Burke and numerous other stars. WTF….Rob can get with Frank Ocean? Have you had your meds today?
Um reading comprehension is your friend boo. Where did I mention his clothes ? I was talking about his face so you can fall back. I don’t care if he was on best dressed lists. All men dress the same on red carpets anyway, they throw on a suit and they’re good to go. Rob is no different.
Billy Burke is a nobody so I’m not checking his eyebrows. Nice try though.
Why do you Twihards even bother tbh ?
Oh, I comprehend very well and I am not a Twihard. Look at Clooney’s eyebrows. Is he big enough for you?
@Crystal: I liked your post. It made me laugh. 🙂
LOL. I can’t understand why these twihards are taking me seriously !
can we please *move on* from talking about these two…just. old. (boring). news.
She’s daft, and he’s hot, and he’s too daft to realize how hot he is.
could do better, please do so. and bury this story…
her acting skills suck hairy balls, so it’s a perpetual mystery to me that she keeps snatching headlines (mostly due to her snatch)
Apparently you haven’t moved on or you would not have clicked on the article to comment on it…right?
she is always angry and bitter about something. what’s new? advice to rob: run as fast as you can.
Oh I can’t see her trying at anything other than her image. Which then again, her image includes Rob so there you go. Huh.
Still Mr. Sparkles, I do not understand why you simply cannot leave considering I doubt she’s any better in private as a person. Perhaps I’m wrong. But I doubt it.
2 things that came to mind:
1. Maybe Sparkles is kind of bored with her and all of it. If he was really still interested, wouldn’t he make an effort to text her enough to stay in touch? Even if it was just to say “Hey, heading off to work, hope your day goes well, talk to you later, love ya!” People in relationships actually find a way to communicate, even while apart, so maybe he’s taking advantage of the geographic distance to put some real distance between them.
And 2. She knows how he is. She’s been with him long enough to know about his quirks and mannerisms and habits. Instead of nagging him about it, work with his already-established traits.
I’m with everybody else on this one—Rob, end it. You will both be better for it if you have your own separate lives for once!
Yep. Even when my husband is deployed, most days of the week, I’ll still get a quick e-mail letting me know he’s thinking about me & our kids, he’s okay, etc.. Phone calls and Skype once or twice a week. If he’s able to do that living in a tent in the middle of a war zone, I think someone on a movie set could if they really wanted to. Something tells me they have way more opportunities. 😉
Robert… Please dump her and spare yourself the drama. No need to be kind towards a cheater.
No wonder she isn’t working. Kstew never auditions for any of her roles. Every single movie that she was given to her was with the help of her parents or their friends. Now that people are finally realizing that she really SUCKS, studios are probably asking her to audition. And knowing this shrew, she is probably throwing a hissy fit & demanding her (much undeserved)high pay. She needs to go away, with or without Sparkles.
I can see this story being true. But I think it boils down to bitterness that Rob is proving himself to be the person from Twilight with the potential Hollywood staying power. Kristen on the other hand is not having that luck because her reputation and poor acting precede her.
In many ways, I think Rob has had difficulty trusting her since she was exposed last summer. I get the idea he’s mentally checked out of this relationship. Who can blame him? The BD2 dvds will be released in March. My best guess is we will probably hear of these 2 breaking up in June to give them a good distance away from anything involving BD2. Still, I wish they would get this idiotic breakup over with. The sooner Kristen disappears into oblivion, the happier I will be. On the other hand, it is ultimately Rob’s choice whether he stays with her or not. But when the majority of the tabloids report a trend,I tend to buy it. However, I can see as some are saying that he is too emotionally attached to Kristen to leave. It’s really hard to say how and if this breakup will go down and when it will happen.
The majority of tabloids are reporting this? Not really, the cover of OK this week says “the wedding is back on”. There is no legitimate source out there so stories are made up either way.
kristen’s in a better place overall industry wise. I don’t find her acting very good at all, but she has made good and important connections in the industry for awhile now pre-twilight, and those connections will her when I think her own self-imposed retrenchment ends. It’s a public image issue I think for her more than her career being trouble, her lack of movement career wise.
Poor rob was introduced to everyone instead through twilight, which is unfortunate. I think he’s more likeable, I think he isn’t a bad actor, and he’s pretty. But his public image is lacking appeal because of the tabloid side of his fame. so he has less cushion in that respect. Which sucks cause I like him better.
He has to dump her! She has already humiliated him way too much and she should not get away with it..
As much as I am not a fan of Kristen, I don’t think her career prospects are as dire as everyone predicts. She has a certain persona, and will probably work steadily. She is certainly divisive, but that is not always a negative thing. Everyone likes to hate on her, but I think these gloom and doom “everyone hates her and she sucks” are premature.
Re her relationship with Rob, I don’t see how there wouldn’t be tension or uncertainty there. I believe they genuinely love each other and are willing to work at it though. Hopefully she figured out why she acted so badly this summer.
I’m amazed the amount of crap here.
The only way I will believe the crap stuff people put in here is when I see pictures, videos and personal reports.
Kristen is dumb as f… but she is a result of the education system of California mixed with stupid parenting and left liberalism. But I believe when she says people are full of crap and it’s something she has said in few interviews.
Kristen dropped out of school. She has a GED. Just saying. She’s not very smart. I think she knows that.
Can’t buy the theory that she loves him or ever loved and respected him. At all. She loves herself more. She was infatuated with him to begin with no doubt and liked all the hide and seek they did with their relationship. But she got bored, bought into her own hype and became arrogant around SWATH. It was so obvious from her demeanor during CC and the press conf there. That bitch was horrible to him during the comic con for BD2. Just before her crap got publicized. Always says how she takes credit for his career. Bitch please. Others should be giving you credit if you truly deserve it. You don’t do it yourself. That’s how she demonstrates that she has no idea what humility means. Bitch needs to disappear.
I was in relationship with guy who everybody loved, and to me they acted not frendly. They have no idea what he’s actually, they made conclusions on the basis of his good guy image, which is all smiles, and I was in my own world, I’m not allowed them to know me better. On second thought I left a similar impression as Kristen leaves. We had problems, he behaved like a pig. But nobody knew, people love to judge. As far as I now, Rob is cheating on her with a couple of girls, long before the scandal with the director. Maybe that is one of reasons why she cheat on him? I have never cheated, and there is no doubt that she made a mistake, but be cool. He was not a saint. And sorry about eng, not perfect.
I don’t believe a word of your story. You don’t know Robert Pattinson, so stop making up stories.
Anon, I don’t care what you believe in. You beleive whatever you want. I read celebitshy about 2 years, maybe longer, and this is my first time I comment some story. I generally find interesting comments that I read, and I agree with many of you. But, when it comes to Kristen, there are so many nasty comments and that is the reason why I now typing this.
I do not think the biggest problem is that Kristen cheated on Rob. The biggest problem and the reason why are so many people against her – is her wrong ATTITUDE. She does not know how to play that way to pick up the sympathy of the majority. Because she act like she doesn’t care all of us were think about her, and that is the matter of fact what make many of you so angry. Some people, like Anne Hathaway, for example, know how to pick up the sympathy. Kristen doesn’t know.
And I think that relationship with Rob is much more over before happened while scandal. There is something rotten in their relationship.
Something may have been rotten and lacking, but I don’t just jump to the conclusion that Rob cheated. Before the cheating, Rob seemed so in to her, smitten, and frankly plain whipped. I don’t think he would cheat on her, and we’re seeing the extent of his “whipped-ness” right now because he’s still with her. I hope he wakes up, but you never know. Some guys just like terrible women, and vice versa… see Rhianna.
So has everyone heard the Dan Marino story? I’m really curious to see if the slut shaming will ensue, or if that is reserved for women.
To recap: Marino has been married for 28 years, has 6 kids. It was just revealed that 7 years ago he had an affair resulting in a child. Paid his mistress (a CBS Sports colleague) hush money to go away and keep it hidden.
Now, I don’t condone what Kristen did at all. But what Marino did is much worse. Will people drag his name through the mud for the next 6 months? What names will he be called? And why isn’t there a male equivalent to slut/whore/tramp/skank and all the other names hurled at women who are caught in an affair? Very interested to see how this unfolds.
I had no idea who this guy was before news of his affair came out. But yes he is an asshole, a manwhore, a jerk, and more. I don’t know if he’s popular (like I said first time hearing about him) but I hope he does get put through the ringer for what he did.
I believe it was Kaiser who predicted the slow fade- and looks like what’s happening. Sad to say, tho, don’t ever see Rob putting out any sort of announcement- and hard to see how KS’ ever so creative team could put a positive spin on such an event in order to put something in People, for instance.
Hope it is over tho- he deserves better.
I don’t think there will be any big announcement; more likely a long, slow fade into oblivion.
She is so unattractive with her scowl and he’s not much better looking; I see better looking men at the grocery store and don’t get the big deal about him!
I agree with you. They are both average looking and average acting skills.
Maybe someone already said this but how is a time difference 18 1/2 hours? Wouldn’t it be 18 or 19? Good grief.
I live in Victoria, where there is an 18hr time difference.
South Australia, (Adelaide) is half an hour behind Victoria.
So yes, it is a half hour time difference
Maybe the’re on Newfie time!
Newfoundland time is 1/2 hour later than Atlantic time zone….
A half hour time zone is possible, they’re called offset timezones. Newfoundland has a half hour timezone. And so does Adelaide, Australia. Which happens to be where somebody is filming a movie at the moment… I wonder who?
If you’re gonna act like other people are idiots, at least be right.
Obviously this has already been answered, but for the record, 30 minute intervals aren’t uncommon at all. South Australia, Northern Territory, Afghanistan, Iran, Newfoundland, Sri Lanka and Burma are all offset by 30 minutes from GMT.
Some places even use a 15 minute offset like Nepal, which is GMT + 5:45.
If this is true Rob’s dragging it out as payback for Kristen humiliating him. Can you blame him? He could be maintaining a holding pattern due to Liberty’s divorce. He could be waiting to see what may come out in the proceedings (the petition is online). If something else surfaces that shows Kristen in a worse light than now (“We didn’t have sex, baby, I swear!!”…pictures say otherwise) Rob would be in a good position to cut her loose. Like Liberty, he’ll be seen as a good guy for giving it a try, but she still wasn’t upfront.
As for BD2 DVD, have you noticed it was not released on or close to Valentine’s Day like BD1? The “love is forever” hook is a tough sell given the events of last summer.
You’re kidding, right? Like it or not, the love is forever thing worked just fine for the box office for BD2.
Fact is, Twilight movies that release in November always had a March release before BD1. The DVDs will sell to the fans regardless of when you release it. There’s no use rushing it out on DVD in February (and potentially cutting your theater gross prior to it) if it didn’t gain you anthing over your March release dates.
I like them together. They both always look like they’ve gone 3 days without a shower, even on a red carpet.
Rob has always been close and even touchy-feely with all of his female co-stars. I think it’s in his nature and, maybe, a part of his British charm. His ‘closeness’ with Kristen was blown out of proportion, because Twihards wanted it to be something special. I didn’t see anything but friendship between them, and if it wasn’t for the tabloids, general public would never consider them as a couple. As for him being “pussy-whipped” – the guy has self-deprecating sense of humor and likes talking about his insecureness, then again it’s part of his charm, it doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s passive in a relationship or unable to call it quits. He’s a nice guy (there’s overall opinion), he’s not throwing his friend under the bus, he’s not destroying Summit’s marketing strategy, he’s not disappointing Twilight’s target audience, that’s it. Yes, his image was damaged, but, as Kaiser said, he’s never tried to pass off as a kind of badass and macho. That’s how I see it.
Well, Twilight is over now, so there’s no franchise profits to protect (nor a sleazy girlfriend). Rob & Kristen should have taken a page out of Beyonce’s book how to deal with a scandal: head on and decisively. Beyonce held a presser for the Super Bowl where she sang the national anthem live and took questions from the press to explain what happened at the inauguration. I wasn’t happy with what she did that day, but I was satisfied with the answer. She’ll still have critics for this, but I think after the press conference and the half-time show the matter will be closed. “Robsten” will continued be dogged by the media with her “momentary indiscretion” because of their duck-and-cover approach when dealing with the press regarding their relationship. That’s why the paps feel they have license to get in their face like they did at LAX last Thanksgiving. Their fans fighting with detractors online will not make the scandal go away. Tidbits of stolen moments and Skype sex will not shut it down. The Ross/Sanders divorce has brought Mini-Cooper-gate back front and center in the news. If these two don’t want to continue to be considered jokes they need to deal with it publicly once and for all. Sometimes silence and statements from publicists are not enough.
