We're all attached to our favorite stars, right? When high-profile couples like Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise or Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony call it quits, everyone puts in their two cents. Well, it's been a couple of weeks now since the relationship issues of "Twilight" lovers Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have become public knowledge. In case you've either been under a rock or actually do have a life, Kristen was caught cheating on Rob.
Kristen then made the sad private situation ripe for public fodder when she released a statement. The actress who plays vamp lover Bella Swann was caught in photos canoodling with Rupert Sanders, director of "Snow White and The Huntsman." To make the situation even worse, Sanders' wife Liberty Ross starred in the film as mother to Kristen's Snow White character. In the statement K-Stew apologized and called her romantic dalliances with the much older man a "momentary indiscretion."
For fans this undoubtedly causes some distress as Pattinson, of course, plays the "Twilight" hunk Edward Cullen to Stewart's Bella. For Twi-hards like diehard fangirl Emma Clark, there's no distinction between Kristen and Rob as a couple versus Bella and Edward. Remember Chris Crocker's "Leave Britney alone" video? (Again, this will be hard for you if you actually have a life. For us pop culture junkies it was a moment of epicness.) Emma rivals Chris in tears, drama. and creepy obsession.
Enter funnyman Will Ferrell. The comic appeared on "Conan" last night looking dignified enough in a black suit and grey tie. Instead of laughs, however, Will was all tears as he spoofed Emma's now infamous YouTube video, "How Could You Do This Kristen Stewart?" Will called the adulterous Kristen a "trampire," lamenting the fact that he might never recover from the breakup.
For his part, Conan O'Brien played Will's straight man. O'Brien tried to assuage the inconsolable Will. The skit was hilarious. We hope that R-Patz got to see it. Thank you, Will and Conan for providing an apt commentary to the sheer ridiculousness of celebrity culture at this very moment.
So what do you think? Will Kris and Rob get back together? Perhaps we should ask Reese Witherspoon. Rob is apparently holed up at her house in Ojai. The RobSten plot thickens: Emma Clark has now become a celebrity in her own right. She says on a recent Australian TV show that "Twilight" has made her a better person.
