|Make that a LOT of bullshit and a LOT of Foam!|
I purposely stayed away for 48 hours.
So many thoughts to process.
So much pointing and laughing.
So much twirling and giggling.
So very very much.
By now you all have see the leaked Christmas pic of Rob and Kristen.
I'm still not comfortable posting it.
But I'm pretty warm and cozy talking about it.
Rob hugging Kristen.
Kristen holding onto Rob's hand.
Rob's parent's house.
Did I mention that Kristen was with Rob's parents
in their house... smiling and taking pictures?
It was sweet.
|"Show me ONE pic of them looking happy together. This one doesn't count!"|
Private picture of Rob/Kristen inadvertently tweeted.
Seriously. You may want to grab something to eat and drink...
Maybe make sure you are comfortable.
Because the reactions
1. Although the majority of Rob/Kristen fans were giddy
and happy to see yet ANOTHER picture of our favorite couple
being all snuggly and together...
There were a number of people in my Twitter feed
who were upset and offended.
I get that releasing private pictures isn't a nice thing.
(which is why I won't post it)
It's like people use stuff like this to get on their damn soapboxes
and preach to anyone who will listen
the right and wrong way to react to this sort of thing.
The picture was OUT there.
There was no taking it back.
And so what if it made people happy to see it?
Let's face it...
Any picture of Rob and Kristen together elicits this type of response.
You can't get upset with people for liking the picture.
You can't police the Twilight fanbase.
There are too many people who have no hesitation whatsoever
about crossing personal and moral boundaries.
You can only be responsible for your own behavior.
|"Show me one picture of them holding hands. This one doesn't count!"|
2. Of course the Foamers were angry too.
And by angry they were spewing bitter foam EVERYwhere.
They tried to act all indignant and self righteous about
how wrong it was to release that picture.
How it was terrible and horrible...
and it made them SO ANGRY!!!
(Well, DUH! What DOESN'T make them angry?
That's all they ever are.)
But methinks it was a bit more than that.
Moral outrage that a year old picture of Rob/Kristen was released?
Or bitter anger that yet another picture of Rob/Kristen
spending MORE time together...
Personal, intimate time.
Time with Rob's parents...
on a family holiday?
I'm guessing bitter anger.
|"Show me ONE picture of them showing affection towards each other! This one doesn't count!"|
3. Conspiracy theories.
A. "Kristen released the picture to offset the WFE trailer
that is coming out this week."
And what exactly does the picture do to thwart the trailer?
And why would Kristen want to hurt WFE?
I'm guessing she wants the movie to do well...
Her boyfriend is in the movie, after all.
Why do people insist that there is a competition
between Rob and Kristen?
B. "Kristen/Summit released the picture to
offset Reese Witherspoons comments about Rob."
Reese's comments weren't an attack on Rob/Kristen.
It was poking fun at the fury surrounding Rob.
Yeah, it would be so like Reese Witherspoon to
disparage someone elses relationship in an interview.
Besides the fact that Reese said Kristen was 'very sweet'.
When she met her on the set of WFE...
When Kristen was visiting Rob.
|"Show me ONE pic of them kissing. This one doesn't count!"|
4. "Rob looks MISERABLE! It looks as though he can't
wait to get away from her!
"Look at Rob's parents... they obviously can't stand being with her.
They look like they want to escape!"
Rob doesn't look miserable...
Although he does look like he just woke up.
Rob parents are lovely, gracious people...
They are smiling while posing with their son and his girlfriend...
in the living room of their home.
That's what is really burning their butts...
Kristen spending time with Rob's family.
And Kristen is smiling...
because she has every reason on earth to be smiling.
Which is cool.
Because I'm smiling, too...
|"Show me ONE pic of them touching! This one doesn't count!"|
Yes a private picture was leaked.
That's never cool.
But the reactions were extreme...
as they always are.
Fact of the matter is no one needs 'proof' anymore
to show that Rob and Kristen are together.
(It's been pretty obvious for quite a while now)
It's just fun to see pictures of them.
Ok... so the Foamers demand proof... but they don't count.
(Remember when it was 'pics or it didn't happen'?
Now it's VIDEO or it didn't happen!
This picture is just another in a long line of pictures
showing Robert and Kristen being a couple.
Yeah, I know...
You fly to England and hang out with male friends and their
parents in their home at Christmas... ALL THE TIME.
But as a dear friend recently told me...
"It doesn't matter WHERE the picture came from...
It still happened."
So keep ignoring yet another picture of Rob and Kristen...
Whether its Home for the Holidays.
On several movie sets.
In the back seat of cars...
Kissing, nuzzling in Montreal.
Flying to Budapest, London, NYC
Showing up at Premieres...
Going to a friends Wedding.
Oh but wait...
Those don't count.
And the beat goes on...
|"Show me ONE picture of them acting like a couple. This one doesn't count"|
This post is brought to you by the letters *T* and *B*
T for TWIRL!
I'm dizzy from all the twirling.
But it never gets old...
And it's FUN!!!
Oh and since we got a pic of Rob/Kristen at Christmas last year...
Just made me think about all the pictures they will
be taking together THIS Christmas.
Did I say Together?
Yes I did.
Bye for now
