Celebrity Breakups:  The Kristen Stewart Edition
The wrath aimed at this woman is over the top. And wrong.

Someone asked me why I don't write about celebrity breakups. I wrote about Jennifer Aniston a while back in THIS POST but that post really was about how the media needed to get over what she's been over for years.

Then it was Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise who seemed to damp that flame themselves when they zoomed through their divorce in about 5 days. Some "unnamed" source said Tom is preparing to "repair" his reputation and fight for Suri. A story completely made up to sell magazines or get web hits, or something. Yet someone somewhere will say, "Did you hear? Tom Cruise is going to fight for custody of Suri!" It's a made-up stupid story because Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes didn't let it become a media circus so some people are trying to create a circus where none exists. So. I say good for you Tom and Katie.

Now it's Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.

I didn't think much about it until I watched the Daily Show. I watch it daily (which, to them, is 4 days a week) and when they're not on vacation (which is like always). So I saw the Robert Pattinson interview which was odd and strangely uncomfortable. I love almost all of Jon Stewart's interviews but this one was weird and forced and I had no idea what the hell was going on. The ice cream thing? It was supposed to be (I suppose) two girlfriends diving into ice cream over a sad breakup.  It didn't play well.  Acting like wounded girlfriends? I don't know but hopefully I never have to watch anything that painful on one of my favorite shows.  I think I experienced more pain watching Jon Stewart stumble through that "interview" than Robert Pattinson experienced over his breakup.

So then I read the Jodi Foster letter about Kristin Stewart and FINALLY figured out what the brouhaha was all about.  So now I get it because I love Jodi Foster (was a fan of her since she was a kid and we have the same birthday). And she is right about the over-reaction toward Stewart and the under-reaction toward the older married man.

This 40 something married director took advantage of a 22 year old actress. That whole thing made me see red as it would with any 40 year old and any 22 year old, boyfriend or no boyfriend. There should be "How could HE?" He being the married director.

But are there?  No.  Now there are Trampire teeshirts. SERIOUSLY?  The NY Daily News is calling her "vamp tramp?"  Really? 

People, GET A LIFE.

Leave this poor girl alone. Poor R-Patz will get over it.  I understand he has Twit-ites or Twilighters or Twitwitters or whatever the hell they are called, freaking out all over the place and someone on Twitter is having an argument with them (and good for whoever that is...keep those people busy...they obviously need something to do).

There will be some little babe to come along and soothe his bruised ego. And who cares?  Unless you're a 15 year old girl and you care, you're not so bright and you need to get a life.
