I wish I could share my little quirk with everyone. I thought I would be safe from the emotional rollercoaster by not letting celebrities and their lives get so close to me, but it got me anyway and in a way I didn’t expect. The Twilight fandom is sad, now I’m sad. This sort of reminds me when the vase slipped from Alice’s hands and then all the bad news followed. I’m hoping SM (or Lionsgate or anybody) has a happy ever after in her back pocket again. We sure could use it.

I must admit this thought did cross my mind too. But then I read an online comment (I can’t remember where, I’ve been all over the place) that said something like the Twilight fandom is not like the Angelina Joelie (I’ve seen a lot of her movies), Kim Kardashian (I’ve watched a lot of her reality shows) or even Tiger Woods (can’t say I’ve ever watch gulf before, maybe while flipping through channels) fandoms, they are mostly male fandoms, Twilight is mostly female fandom. That comment pretty much was the end of this wishful theory for me.
Another thing I don’t think is going to happen that a lot of people are wishing would happen is, wanting Kristen to give some sort of explanation for her mistake, I just don’t think that will happen. That would be very out of character for her. I hate to say it, but I think her 3 sentence statement is the first and the last thing she will ever say regarding her private life, and she only gave that statement because the circumstance (and possibly her higher ups) forced her to. Short of her higher ups and Rob requesting something like that from her, I just don’t see her giving any kind of explanation for what happened. Maybe people think this will bring closure or something, but it won’t. It would just further humiliate her, Rob and the Sanders family. IMO, she should NOT give any explanation at all about this, ever. I think forgiveness and putting this behind us is the best thing for everyone. I know it is difficult. But with God all things are possible.

I know what you mean. BD1’s trailer broke yahoo record for the most watched trailer on their site. It will be a miracle if BD2 does as well. I will be grateful if it does half as well. I will be expecting it to have at least a quarter of BD1’s numbers, anything less will be disappointing to say the least.
It’s kind of a good thing this didn’t happen after the first, second or third movie. We either would have had a very low budget film and/or someone else playing Bella or NO film at all. How bizarre to have to go through something like this with the most expensive and grandest Twilight film of them all? I think I remember hearing someone on one of the red carpet BD2 events saying something like, he was expecting BD2 to make more than the 700M BD1 made in the worldwide box office. I guess that guy, and myself included, should have took the advice of, “don’t count your chickens before they hatch” more seriously than we ever thought possible.
[Side Note] The title of this thread just got a whole new meaning for me and not in a good way.
PS Okay, very facetious stuff coming up:
I still can’t believe the mess the SWATH poisonous apple has made on all of us innocent and remorseful parties. This gooey tar-like stuff
is everywhere and on everyone. I really hope someone comes up with a solution to get this mess off of us. But who can handle a cleanup of this proportion? Who, I ask ya, who??? Hmm . . . . .
I’ve got it, I’ve got it. We need the highly trained Men in Black
clean-up crew to come and clean up this nightmare with their high-tech equipment. Then we need them to NEURALIZE
the whole world. It will be as if the nightmare NEVER happened. Then after they NEURALIZE
us they can give us some lame story that fits what just happened. Maybe they could say how this was all a publicity stunt for a new (horror) movie or something, I don't know. [**shrugs shoulders**] Whatever works. Then finally, happiness would be restored to the Twilight Universe. All would be well again. YAY!!
Now, if I could only remember where I put their number right before they NEURALIZED
me the last time
