Rob and Kristen-- The Elephant in the Room

Good Grief.

I seem to use those two simple words quite a bit lately.
Why you ask?

This fandom is mental.

Remember the wedding last weekend?
You know...

The wedding where Kristen had the audacity...
the fucking NERVE
to change into jeans for the 'after' party.
(AFTER being the key word-- as in after the wedding)
Do you have any idea just how long this jean debate
has gone on?
Do you?
Yeah... I know I'm now adding to that total...
But only to make a point.
(And since it was documented that she didn't wear the jeans 
to the wedding, I guess it's moot)
The jeans were never really an issue.
Not really.

THIS was the issue

This place card really burned some butts.

The pictures of Rob and Kristen 
smiling together...
Or the one with them sitting next to each other
with Rob's arm around Kristen
Those pictures didn't chap their asses more than the words

Mr. Robert Pattinson
Ms. Kristen Stewart

on that card.
A Couple.

So... of course the lunatic fringe had to cling to SOMETHING
Didn't they?
It's just a smokescreen, of course...
So they don't have to face 
(once again)
What's right in front of them.

It has gotten so much worse for them
ever since Cannes...

And this video.
This glorious wonderful video.

This video that shows Rob and Kristen
being affectionate and sweet and loving
and kissing and hugging
and all the things that some people
always claim 'You will never see'
But we did... didn't we?
It's not dark... or too blurry
We can clearly see who is who
and what they are doing.
Can't we?

And you know...
Every time Rob and Kristen go out together
be it a concert, or dinner or whatever...
People who see them always are saying
that they were 'so affectionate with each other'
'They were next to each other all night'
'They were hugging and kissing and very sweet'
You know?
And that's all this video really is...
Just showing us the exact same things
all those people said they saw in person.
Makes all those tweets and statements
a bit more believable and REAL now...
Doesn't it?
We all got to witness just how loving and sweet
Rob and Kristen are when they are together.

So it should come as no big surprise...

That when Rob was seen hanging around
With the likes of Katy Perry/Shannon Woodward
and Beiber/Gomez
It would make big news... right?
Of course it did.
Well... to some people anyway.
Those who are clinging to the scraps and tidbits
of their PR theories and conspiracies.

Rob went to Katy Perry's Premiere after party....
And  he got on the Beiber Bus
and was dropped off at some bar opening.
Oh dear. Oh my.
If you watch the videos
(and they are painful, not gonna lie)
The paps really didn't seem to care that much
about Rob at all...
They were definitely chasing the Beiber.
Now I'm guessing that would have been
a completely different story if Kristen had been there...
But alas... she was working in Paris.
And Rob was seen with his friend Shannon Woodward.
Whom I really like quite a bit.
She seems to make Robert smile...
and I can always appreciate someone who can do that.
Maybe Rob thought if he traveled with Beiber
the focus wouldn't be on him.
He was kinda right
Until he walked into the bar behind a ...
are you ready for this?
The super secret blonde girlfriend??
Oh wait.
People fucking attacked her on gossip sites
that she actually had to come out and defend herself

“It is absolutely not true,” she tells Gossip Cop. Gordon says, 
“I have a wonderful boyfriend and [Pattinson] has beautiful Miss Stewart!”
She adds, “It’s insane how a second in time can be misinterpreted.
 I literally took a sip of water and walked inside
and they made it look like we were out there for 10 minutes together.”

Yep. It's insane.
But that just means they will focus more on
Katy and/or Shannon
Or any other female that was in spitting distance.
Breathing the same air.
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
And they don't get more desperate than the Fringe.

That's what they try to do...
Not acknowledge the gigantic elephant in the room.
Be it love and affection on a balcony at Cannes
Or standing side by side...
Smiling together at yet another private wedding.
They try to pretend it didn't happen
That it doesn't matter...

But that elephant is real.
The elephant is truth.
That elephant isn't going anywhere.
And the elephant isn't wearing jeans.

This post is brought to you by the number 9

Multiply that by a couple thousand
and you might come up with how many
times Robert has been accused of cheating.
There has never been any proof
No one has ever stepped forward to claim Rob
All we have ever seen
Is Rob getting into or out of cars
with people who sometimes happen to be women.
That's it.
He's never alone with these women.
He's never been seen holding their hand...
Or hugging them at his premiere at Cannes
Kissing them on balconies
Or taking them to weddings/baptisms
visiting them at their work
spending birthdays and holidays with them
or following them to Paris...
We never see Rob do that with anyone
except Kristen.
Only Kristen.
Always Kristen.

And this post is brought to you by
my eternal adoration of
Thomas Sturridge

Until next time
Look out... the elephant is right behind you.

Bye for now


Groovie said...

Nice late night post!
Some people are just stupid and annoying, but we all know that!
And all these idiots would gladly accept a ride on the Biebs party bus with Katy Perry aboard! Hell I know I would! Lol!
Kristen probably would have hopped aboard the Bieber bus if she had been home too! Lol!

Hope Kristen had a nice, productive Paris trip. I'm totally excited to do a drive-by smell & spritz of Florabotanica when it comes out! And if like it, then I may just add it to my Christmas list :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Since its supposed to be 113 here all weekend I plan on locking myself away in the A/C and reading!

Kay said...

At this point I don't think the fringe would even acknowledge the elephant in the room if it walked over and sat on them.

The new banner is gorgeous, Rose...such sweetness.

Take care and have a happy weekend, everyone....stay cool! <3

angelica1 said...

Morning Everyone!

Love the new banner,Rose.

Kay - Your comment is giving me a hilarious mental picture.

Rhonda said...

Morning all, happy Saturday...

I can't help it, just the thought of the Bieber party bus makes me laugh :D

Have a great weekend everyone, and stay safe. The weather is crazy right now, take care.

Anonymous said...

Rose, another great post. You always hit the nail on the head with this lunatic fringe.

That's it though, isn't it? They're just a fringe. They may make a lot of noise...but they're only a few. Nothing compared to Robert's or Kristen's REAL fans, fans who are supportive of them, separately and together.

I'm sorry you have to deal with their vitriol on a daily basis because of your blog. But I'm so glad your still here, wading through the muck. Because it's worth it, isn't it? To support Robert and Kristen (and Tom) and to see them happy, to see their careers flourish and expand. Sometimes I come here, after a long hard day and just smile from reading your posts and seeing the pictures you post.


Dottie said...

Happy Saturday!

What a treat to find a new Rose post first thing this morning! Love that gorgeous banner.

Rhonda, The Bieber bus makes me chuckle, too. No way would I have turned down the chance to jump on and take a ride! haha

Groovie, Stay cool, my friend!

Hi to Kay, Angelica, Rolange, & anyone else who stops by.

Have a great week end, everyone!

Rhonda said...

Dottie- yeah, I would'nt have turned it down either lol ;)

DK- I'm sorry I missed you yesterday. I'm doing good, thanks. How's it going for you? Still loving the new place?

Hope said...

Good Morning Everyone!

Rhonda....I was thinking the same thing...Bieber Bus...LOL.

Have a fun weekend!

Pamella said...

Rose, loved your post! I couldn't agree with you more. How can anyone not see what is "so obvious" right in front of their faces with these two. They live under a microscope as it is and have handled it so well with such maturity and grace. What's amazing is how much they have grown up right in front of our eyes & their love for each other appears to be just getting stronger & stronger. Love these two!

Hope everyone has great weekend!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good Morning ALL

ROLANGE. I loved your post today and since there's nothing I can say to improve on your words, I will just wave hello to every body and wish you all a most wonderful weekend and stay COOL...High today 108!

Litmom said...

Happy Saturday, Roselanders!

Rose, we (and THEY) are so very lucky to have you to swat away the pests. Wish you could ride on the Bieber Bus and set things straight.

I thought the Florabotanica ad looked awesome - already planning to gift my daughter with the fragrance as soon as it's available!

Stay inside all of you US'ers - it's gonna be a scorcher.

Melinda said...

Happy Saturday y'all!

People are indeed strange. Just gotta laugh, shake your head and be happy you don't share their disease.

I was quite surprised at how fast the Beibs was getting from the venue to the bus. Beep! Beep!

It was cool to see Rob supporting a friend's premiere even if it meant being in the midst of paps. Glad he and Shannon found some humor when faced with doors closing on them by accident.

Hope Kristen has found her way back home by now and has time to relax after a few busy days.

For those of you that are facing crazy high heat waves or power outages, keep cool and safe!

Have a terrific rest of your weekend!

Lanette said...

Just read your post. Loved it. It does not matter what Rob and Kristen do it brings the idiots out from under their rocks. I for one do not pay them any attention since they just talk to hear themselves make noise. The are on the denial train with not intention of getting off. I feel bad for the cows that just can't accept the Truth.

katy said...

Hello everyone,

Great post, Rose!

Stupidy should be painful...and especially excruciating for Ninnies and Nonberts.

Love the new Banner, SO beautiful and sweet!!!

I hope wherever Rob and Kristen are that they are happy.

Freddie, where are you??

Take care everyone

beacullen said...

LOVE the banner! Once again happy I don't go on Twitter. And yea that is definately one big ass elephant hahahaha. I loved it that Shannon came forward and said what she did. Geez the people that start these rumours don't even think or care how hurtful they could be. Assholes. When I saw the video of Rob getting on the Beiber bus, I thought I would love to be a fly on the wall there lmao. Great post, I'm so glad that when we do see Rob and Kristen they just seem so happy together. Good for them!! Thanks Rose.

wig4usc said...

Did any of you see the video of Rob getting on the bus? The closed the door on him and he had to wait, and he took it in stride, laughed even, rather than get indignant. That's our Rob, I giggled when I saw it and was proud of him!! TMZ even comic enter Rob!

Leni said...

Thanks for the post, Rose :)

I love the new banner!

It's so hot here, I'm definitely staying inside tomorrow ;)

I hope that you are all doing great :)

Barbara Fenwick said...

Thank you for addressing the jeans issue. So ridiculous.

Poor Rob, he can never catch a break. When he goes out, he is always accused of cheating, no matter what---trying to make something out of nothing. Rob and Kristen are happy. When we see them out, they are always smiling, holding hands, they are happy.

I love the new banner.

Take care Roselanders. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Birdie said...

The Balenciaga ad looks smashing. I hope Kristen has or does get home safe and sound.
As for the loons, at this point these women are just plain silly. If they don't mind sounding completely ignorant and pyschotic,then so be it.
It sounds like we have one more year of Comic Con to enjoy. These two sure have had a busy year and they haven't even started filming yet! Enjoy your moments of peace Rob and Kristen.
Have a COOL day Rose,Smitty,Gruff,Syd,and all you Roselanders!

Happy Canada Day to all of our Roseland Canucks! :)

Happy Sunday to all the rest!

Oneheart said...

Hi Roseland..I've posted here a couple of times but mostly lurk..Rose enjoyed your latest post, no surprise since I love all fo them. You are amazing and I love the way you word things.

I especially loved using the elephant is in the room but they don't see as an illustration of right before their eyes. They choose not to see what their hardened hearts can't bear to see.

I love quotes & anyone who knows me can vouch for that.."We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are."
- Anais Nin....when our hearts are hardened and full of jealousy we aren't going to see love right in front of our eyes. Until those consumed with hate open their hearts to love they'll never see the elephant. Our windows are the eyes to our soul so that is why they can't see the beauty of the love these two have for one another. Their souls are full of hate and jealousy and it blocks all aspects of love.

I just wanted to jump in and say thank you to Super for posting the Banana Split Recipe I am a cookbook collector and this one I don't have. Waves to DK, Dottie, Fiorels, Rhonda, and Litmom and all the other Regs. It's so hot here in Virginia and along the East Coast and the storms have been really bad, keeping all of my fellow East Coasters in my prayers. Enjoy your Sunday.

Thanks for posting! What you say about love, hate, and jealousy are so true. I hope you come back soon.

Well, hubs helped me change my avi. that was my delete above...so please excuse...my husband is so tolerant..hahaha

Let's see if it appears..fingers crossed!

DreamerKind said...

Good day! Storms went away! Yay!

Sounds so yummy, that banana split cake. Had an ice cream one last week, the first in years.

Thanks for the welcome to RA and know you all will be happy there and here.

Hello back,lovely one.

I am loving my new place, the more I get rid of things, everyday!

Out for groceries..back later.

Regards to Rose, Smitty, Gruff, Syd & #1, and You!

Sarah_K said...

The reaction to the pics of Rob hanging out with Katy Perry was over the top, as always. Everytime he's photographed with any woman other than Kristen is the same old story. The nonnies claim victory, the insecure shippers have panic attacks and the gossip media fabricate a few more stories and spread a few more rumours. It doesn't help that Kristen is now much more open than him about their relationship and that she's rarely seen solo with other men, at least outside work related events. People take advantage of it to picture him as a manwhore and to picture her as a victim. Fans come to his defence and suddenly it turns into this epic battle.
Rob is a smart guy, I'm sure he knows that hanging out with people like Katy Perry will eventually put him at the centre of the attention. I'm sure he realized that this was going to happen as soon as he decided to take a ride on the Bieber bus with her and a bunch of other pretty girls. No picture, no story... his words, remember? If he doesn't care about what people will say, why do his fans care so much? Fighting with haters is useless and just adds more fuel to the fire.

Rhonda said...

Morning everyone, I hope you all had a nice weekend...

Super- thanks for sharing the recipe, sounds yummy!

OneHeart- nice comment. I think that quote is just right :)

Hope- long time, no talk. I hope you're doing well.

Have a great Monday, stay cool ;)

Good morning dear Rose and Roseland,

Rose, absolutely love the beautiful banner.
...le sigh....

Have been peeking in at your posts and as always, you write words of wisdom and truth in the most entertaining fashion. Thank you.

Finally back home and in summer routine after working on some projects here and out of state. Have one more big curriculum project coming up in a few weeks.

Can't wait to smell Florabotanica. The first ad is amazing.

Hope Rob and Kristen are now in "out of sight mode" for some quality R&R. Always wishing them the very best in life.

Litmom, very excited to see Beasts of the SW. It looks outstanding. Did get to see Moonrise Kingdom and I highly recommend it. Loved everything about it...story, cast, visuals and music. A very quiet, quirky, yet brilliant movie. Will try to see Safety not Guaranteed tomorrow in Austin.

Hugs for y'all.
Hugs for Smitty, Gruff and Syd.
Life is good!
Keeping the many unfortunate souls who are suffering, in the areas of the fires and extreme heat, in my thoughts and prayers.
¡ Olé España !

Litmom said...

Hello, friend - nice to see you here ;-) ;-) ;-). Oh, and the Cinnamon Cream Cheese Breakfast Bars I made last weekend were to die for. They're on my Pinterest YUM board...

Super - I do think I'm going to make your Banana Split Cake for the 4th!

olivia - YES! Go see it! The director, Benh Zeitlin, is a real up and come-r. Very limited release, but hunt it down and see it. I miss Austin so much - I lived there for 13 years, and would move back tomorrow. I hope to get back to AT LEAST hit up SXSW soon.

Hope said...

Hey Rhonda!
We are all well and enjoying our summer vacation away from school. How are you? Any summer vacation plans?

Your recipe sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing.

Have fun in Austin...sounds like you've been enjoying your summer break.

Waving hello to everyone.

Freddie....Gee...I hope you are okay. Missing you.

Sydney...Hope you are well and not near the devastating fires.

This Kind Heals

Let It Rain

Eric Clapton

The rain is falling
Through the mist
Of sorrow
That surrounded me

The sun could never
Thaw away
The bliss
That lays around me

Let it rain, let it rain,
Let your love rain down on me
Let it rain, let it rain
Let it rain, rain, rain

Her life was like a desert flower
Burning in the sun
Until I found the way to love
It's harder said than done

Now I know the secret
There is nothing that I lack
If I give my love to you
You'll surely give it back

Let it rain, let it rain,
Let your love
Rain down on me

Let it rain, let it rain
Let it rain
Rain, rain

Thank you/Lizzardx29x

DreamerKind said...

Hullo, there, Gorges!

White wine drinking, R/K happy thinking, painting vintage metal stand, rearranging, changing, everything.

So pleased to be here with you! (You're here, aren't you?)

FREDDIE! I've contacted the Mounties, and they will find you, wherever you are, or someone like them, since we are getting WORRIED, darling girl!!!

Anyone have Freddie's email? If so, write her, and let us know she's OK, in any way and we won't bug her then. Love our Freddie now and forever! Go Canada!!

I represent you and exclamation points everywhere. :)

Oneheart said...

Litmom I will definitely have to try those Cinnamon Cream Cheese Breakfast Bars. What would we do without our Pinterest, it is very addictive. LOL I went today and got the ingredients to make Super's Banana Split Cake. I'm sure it is going to be soooo good. Hope everyone has had a great day.

DK how about picking out a cheerful song for all of us on the East Coast who have had a rough weekend following the storms.

DreamerKind said...

We Are After Freddie!

The Mounties

Nelson Eddy (1930's):

On thru' the hail
Like a pack of angry wolves
On the trail
(We are after you)

Dead or alive
We are out to get you dead or alive
(And we'll get you soon)

Far over the snow
What are those voices
They sing as they go
What do those voices

Look out for the Mounties
(Here come the Mounties)
We come
Somebody hide
Somebody better hide!

On thru' the hail
Like a pack of angry wolves
On the trail
(We are after you)

Dead or alive
We are out to get you dead or alive
(And we'll get you soon)

If you're the one
Better run, better run away
Son you are done
Throw your gun

Throw your gun away
Here come the Mounties
To get the man
They're after

Thank you/fatjud1

DreamerKind said...

Yes, I will find some cheer for you and others, that suffer in this uncertain, at times, insufferable beyond understanding, world of ours.

My own brother, a Vietnam vet with Agent Orange effects, has no a/c or electricity since yesterdays 90 mph storm, who keeps his pets safe at home and perseveres.

How strong and determined are the American people, keeping faith in the land that we love! (All are included!)

We are the world, like all for one, like a Musketeers bar, gooey chocolate (sentimental), sticky (we stick together) and are a very good combination (united we stand).

DreamerKind said...

What cinnamon cheese breakfast bars? Post them here, posthaste, if it be your will.

Freddie said...

Peeks a head in……

Hey ladies (and gentlemen). I hope you are all well.

It’s been a while since I last popped in and it’s nice to see the regulars are still holding down the fort. Hope, Rhonda, katy, Super, DK, Melinda, Olivia, Leni, dottie, ali mac and anyone I may have missed – thanks so much for asking after me. You ladies are absolutely the best, along with everyone else in Roseland.

I’ve been busy with work. It has been challenging, and basically kind of draining, so I haven’t had as much time to come by, nor the mind space to be honest. And I think I needed to take a bit of a break from the drama of the fandom. But checking in now, I realize how much I’ve missed everyone so I’m going to try to pop a bit more, if I can.

Rhonda – thanks again…..

Hope and dottie – I hope you and your families are well.

Katy – if you’re a soccer fan (or should I say football), I’m sorry that Portugal didn’t make it. I work with a lady from Portugal and she was in agony watching the last game. I think Cristiano Ronaldo is off her Christmas list. LOL.

DK – Oh DK, you are one in a million. The Mounties dedication – loved it. It’s so reassuring to see that you’re still posting great music. Somehow that makes everything all right in Roseland. I smiled at the Mungo Jerry song from a few posts ago. Brings back memories…

Olivia – I’m so glad that you’ve getting some down time now that you are in summer mode. I hope you get to enjoy yourself.

Groovie – I’m so sorry to hear about your dog. That is heart breaking. I hope that with some time it will make it a little easier for you.

Super – the recipe sounds wonderful….and way too tempting when I’m trying to be good…LOL. I hope your grandson and family are well.

Melinda – I’m late to the party, but I hope you enjoyed your mini-vacay. It probably seems like a distant memory now. I checked the link you provided to Kirsty Mitchell’s art. It’s absolutely beautiful and wonderful tribute to her mom. Thanks for posting it.

Ali mac – wow France – I hope you’re enjoying your trip.

Leni – I hope you’re surviving the heat. Stay cool, if possible.

IB, Kenzz – you’ve been AWOL too. I hope you are both well.

Hello to Annie, Kay, Angelica, Birdie, Litmom and everyone else that I’ve missed.

That’s it for now. Stay well all, especially those suffering in the oppressive and dangerous heat. Take care.

Groovie said...

Hey Freddie!
Good to see u, hope u are well and work gets a little less draining!
We are getting into the busy season at my work and I have 25 new people reporting to me, so I feel ya with the "draining" description!

Hope to see u pop in more often!

For Freddie Is Knocking

Knock On Wood

Eddie Floyd:

I don't want to lose you
This good thing
That I got 'cause if I do
I will surely,
Surely lose a lot

'Cause your love is better
Than any love I know
It's like thunder and lightning
The way you love me
Is frightening

I'm not superstitious about ya
But I can't take no chance
I got me spinnin', baby
You know I'm in a trance

It's no secret about it
That woman is my loving cup
She sees to it
That I get enough

Just one touch from her
You know it means so much
It's like thunder and lightning

The way you love me is frightening
You better knock
Knock on wood, baby

Thank you/jhmosaenglish03

DreamerKind said...

I count on you, when you can bend your mind in a musical direction, to share it with me, and I will, with us. Simply that.

There is no fandom drama here, for we are steady on, without doubts. Come and go with us, as you please. <3

DreamerKind said...

No Matter What May Come, Let's Go!

Come Go With Me

Del Vikings (1957):

Love, love me darlin'
Come and go with me,
Please don't send me
'way beyond the sea;
I need you, darlin',
So come go with me

Come, come, come, come,
Come into my heart,
Tell me, darlin',
We will never part;
I need you, darlin',
So come go with me

Yes, I need you,
Yes, I really need you,
Please say you'll never leave me

Well, say, you never,
Yes, you really never,
You never give me a chance

Come, come, come, come,
Come into my heart,
Tell me, darlin',

We will never part;
I need you, darlin',
So come go with me

Thank you/74sodapop
