Rob and Kristen- What Matters?

 I don't want to dwell on the heartbreak of this past weekend.
It hurts.
I don't want to debate gun control.
Mental health issues.
All worthy topics... 
But not on a Robert Pattinson blog... Right?

I'm sad.
Coming online...
Reading about Rob and Kristen
is a way to step away from 'real' life...
have a laugh.
Enjoy a moment.

So let's see...

I love this picture.
It is no doubt
one of my favorite pictures of Rob and Kristen.
(I wonder how many times I've posted this...)
I think his face says it all.
Looking at this picture...
makes me smile.
Smiling is good.

It sure beats the hell out of people
who continue hating (and yes... you DO hate her)
a young girl they do not know...
for imagined slights she has supposedly
perpetrated against them.
Does even that make sense?

 I'm not sure what it is about Kristen
that makes me want to protect her.
I really don't.
I mean...
Is it because she is so tiny
and so easily gets swallowed up in a crowd?
Is it because she is painfully shy
and thus almost always misunderstood?
Is it because she continues to do what she loves to do
despite the incredible amount of scrutiny and criticism
she receives for even the most mundane of things?
Is it because she is harassed and stalked relentlessly?
Is it because she is held to standards no one else 
is ever held to?
Is it because she's the underdog?

Over the weekend...
My brother
Who has no real knowledge of Rob or Kristen
Doesn't read gossip mags
is essentially clueless when it comes to this fandom
(which is how I like it)
saw a picture of Kristen

"Oh look, that girl who never smiles
is actually smiling"

Are you kidding me?
He actually said this?

So I replied

"Do you even know what you are talking about?
She smiles ALL the time.
Why would you say that?"

His answer?

"I don't know. I read it somewhere.
And its true. She never smiles."


"OK, so what do you know about
Kristen Stewart that you can say 
with such absolute conviction
that she never smiles?
Have you ever watched her talk?
Have you ever paid attention 
in any way whatsoever to her?
Do you know ANYTHING about her at all?"

I got a bit heated.
Because this is exactly what happens.
Kristen doesn't smile on a red carpet...
and suddenly she never smiles.
And that's what rags and hags focus on.
The negative.
And that's what idiot brothers pick up on.

So I added...

" She happens to smile quite a lot, actually.
She smiles when she's happy.
She doesn't force a smile to please a crowd.
In fact...
If you really want to see her smile
Take a look at her when shes with Robert."

He just looked at me.
And then I realized I was all defending Kristen
over something stupid my brother said.
(Needless to say, he did admit that he was wrong
and just repeating what he had read.)
Who does that?
Why did I feel this need to do that?

I guess I defend her because I like her.
I like that shes awkward and nervous
and not all polished and shiny.
I like that sometimes she doesn't give a shit
what she is wearing and will put on a pair
of comfortable shoes with a fancy dress.
I like that she prefers vintage t-shirts and jeans...
Especially her deliciously handsome boyfriend's t-shirts.

I like that she swears like a sailor 
and loves her animals.
I like how she admits to her mistakes...

And I love how she loves Rob.
Because I adore Rob.

And before anyone sends me the 
I defend Rob too.
He just doesn't get the same kind of vicious attacks
as Kristen gets every minute of every hour.
(at least I don't see them)

You have to admire both Rob and Kristen's
tenacity to be in this relationship.
The force is strong with these two.
Imagine dealing with all the bullshit
they have been dealing with for the past 4 years.
The Rags and Hags trying to tear them apart...
The intense scrutiny of every word...
every movement...
every fucking breath.
And since July
It has only gotten worse.

But yet...
Rob and Kristen REMAIN.
Through it all...
Even more determined than before...
They still stand
Side by side.
In love.

 The Rags and Hags had it all figured out...
or so they thought.
Rob and Kristen were
"never ever getting back together"
Shuts you RIGHT DOWN!
Must suck to be wrong
ALL the damn time.

All they had to do was keep living their life
the way they always have...
No matter what anyone else thinks.


"I've never experienced working on the same movie 
for such a long time other than the twilight saga. 
Maybe that's why all the characters stay in my heart.
Thinking about them, is like looking back at your good old
high school days.
 Rob hasn't changed since the first time I met him.
 He always explores his limits,
 and he makes me feel loved and cherished.
He's a big part of my life now."


“People think they knew a lot about me before.
 They know even less now. 
People will project whatever.
 It’s a huge form of entertainment. 
As soon as you step outside your own life and look at it 
like that and think that you can shape something — 
you need to live your life. 
I’m just going to live my life, actually,” 


"Knowing that you'll always keep something special 
no matter what happens, 
is something that has made an impact in my life. 
That's one of the biggest lessons I've received in life."


“The only relief when it comes to Twilight is that the story is done,”
 she says matter-of-factly. 
“I start every project to finish the motherfucker,
 and to extend that [mentality] over a five-year period 
adapting all of these treasured moments over four books, 
it was constantly worrying.” She pauses. 
“But as long as people’s perspective of me
 doesn't keep me from doing what I want to do,
 it doesn't matter.”

This post is brought to you by what matters.

1. Tell the people in your life you love them.
Hug them. 
Cherish your children.

2. Rob and Kristen have figured out
what matters.
Each other.
They don't give a shit what anyone else
says or thinks...
They obviously already know.

3. Thomas Sturridge.

He fucking matters.

4. Life.
Corny? Yes.
But so fucking true.

5. I actually LOVE
that Rob and Kristen are 
under the radar right now

They've earn their peace.
Their quiet.
Just know that somewhere
behind that curtain...
Rob and Kristen
are together.
That's all that matters.

Until next time.

Be safe.
Be kind.
Be happy.

Bye for now

Happy Holiday Rose an thanks for keeping to the facts...slaying the idiots with their own logic and making this a treasured place to come.

Ginger with a Soul said...

Rose - defending her becomes second nature because she is so relatable and the hatred towards her is so unwarranted - they hate her because who she is with not her for herself. I also still stand by they are are either very confused or are her closeted biggest fans because they read/watch every interview, save every photo, watch her every move - hell they know more about her than most of her die hard fans do. I am glad that they found each other because they seem to balance each other out. Kristen and Rob always end up together .

Delle1 said...

Morning my friend,isn't this the best post ever,love Rose and of course You....Kiri. xxx

Litmom said...

Rose! Thank you for your EVER, ALWAYS FIERCE support of these two. Love you, love them.

cristina zocchi said...

I'm so proud of you Rose.
I love reading what you think about Rob and Kris.
Thank you hon!

PL said...

I'm picturing Rose arguing with her brother and trying not to give away why she knows so much about the subject. I can relate to that.

I have a request for all you Southern ladies or gents.

Does anyone have a sure fire, goof proof recipe for Pralines? I was given a mountain of pea-Kahns and I wanted to try some new recipes.

PamH said...

@ Rose
Another spot on post. Something to smile about after all the bad stuff , THANKS

I'm not sure if it's just my iPad but all the blogs are different looking but everything else is the same?

Litmom, Ginger, Delle1 and searb

Awesome...Thanks Rose!!!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

PL. Good luck. I've eaten them but never made them!

ROSE. Lovely reflective post. Just right. Yeah, people will come up to me and make negative comments. They are not into all of this like we are so they just go by headlines etc. I set them straight !!!!

GUYS. You may be in luck. My I Pad is being repaired and you know how much trouble I have posting on my I phone so you may not hear much from me this week. OK. OK. I hear you all clapping!!! Lol. :)

Birdie said...

The last few days have been a real downer for many reasons and I needed a reason to smile. Thank you.

Holy said...

Hello ladies/gents.

Rose-awesome post.

It's true that R/K don't give f@ck what others think.And good for them.

@Ginger-hey there.

olivia said...

Thank you dear Rose,

Perfectly stated. Wonderful post as always.

Count me in as one who hopes, and also will be happy, that Rob and Kristen stay under the radar and out of sight from prying camera lenses.

Just finished rewriting some finals and they are run off, all set to go. Now if I could only wiggle my nose and have them graded in a wink.

Hugs for y'all.
Hugs for Smitty, Gruff and Syd and their family and friends

Freddie said...

PL – LOL. Yes, I can imagine the discussion that Rose had. I’ve had to keep my awareness of R&K under control and under wraps a few times.

Super – we’re not clapping. Hope your phone gets fixed soon.

DK - wow... Ella, Gershwin, Chopin.. Quite the selections!

Olivia - nice to see you. Good luck with the rest of your finals. If you figure out that nose wiggling thing, please let me know.

I hope everyone is having a better start to the week than the end of the one that just passed.

Hi to Birdie, Litmom, Ginger, Pam H, Holy and everyone else who has posted or is yet to post.

Stella said...

No matter how hard the day, just looking at a Rob and Kristen's picture always makes me smile.
Great post as usual, Rose.

tufenuf55 said...

I remember a girlfriend of one of my family members making a rude comment about Kristen even before the summer. In trying to correct this person of how good Kristen is, it came down to my being rude to this person over Kristen. And I felt justified; great about it! My family just stood there, mouths open and saying to me that I was obsessed about it and didn't even know her. I was and am obsessed about Kristen; about protecting her from wrongful impressions. It really pisses me off. No other family member or friend have brough up Kristen's name to me again. Sorry, just love that girl and loves that Rob loves her no matter what anyone says about her.

My mother was WORLD famous (not really, but pretty famous around our part of Southeast Texas)for these. We gave them as fabors at my daughter's wedding last year

Here you go -
Lola’s Pralines
2 cups sugar
¾ cup milk
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 cups pecans
1 tablespoon butter
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla

Cook sugar, milk, and soda until it is barely boiling, stirring constantly. Once it is boiling gently, stop stirring and let it boil until it forms a soft ball in cool water (use a candy thermometer). Remove from flame, Add pecans, butter, and vanilla. Beat or stir a few minutes until the mixture is creamy (not glassy). Spoon onto wax paper that has been sprinkled with salt (VERY important!).

Living Life

Life is not a race - but indeed a journey. Be honest. Work hard. Be choosy. Say "thank you", and "great job" to someone each day. Go to church, take time for prayer.
The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh. Let your handshake mean more than pen and paper. Love your life and what you've been given, it is not accidental ~ search for your purpose and do it as best you can.

Dreaming does matter. It allows you to become that which you aspire to be. Laugh often. Appreciate the little things in life and enjoy them. Some of the best things really are free.

Do not worry, less wrinkles are more becoming. Forgive, it frees the soul. Take time for yourself ~ Plan for longevity. Recognize the special people you've been blessed to know.

Live for today, enjoy the moment. ~ Bonnie Mohr

Oneheart said...

Rose thank you for telling it like it is. I love how you're protective over Kristen, and Rob too when you need to be. I have nothing but respect for them and as long as I have a breath of air in me I will always support them and speak up for them. I've always been for the one being bullied, and love it when the bully gets knocked down. Karma never forgets an address.

Waves to Ginger, Delle1, Litmom, Super, PamH, PL, searbhasach-bwen, Cristina, Birdie, Holy, Olivia, Freddie, Stella, tufenuf55 and Second Chance and anyone else I may have forgotten. I feel like John Boy and the Waltons after typing everyone's names. LOL

PL said...


Thank you so much!!!!

I've seen a lot of recipes that either needed half and half or whipping cream, but none like your WORLD FAMOUS ones.

I can't wait to try them and I'm going to make some tomorrow.

Barbara Fenwick said...

I feel the same way about Kristen and never understood why. Thank you for explaining it. I am so pleased Rob and Kristen are happy, and I hope it remains that way forever.

So much sorrow in my heart right now, but Rob and Kristen always makes me smile and be happy.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.

With Hope ~ Steven Curtis Chapman

This is not at all how
We thought it was supposed to be
We had so many plans for you
We had so many dreams
And now you've gone away
And left us with the memories of your smile
And nothing we can say
And nothing we can do
Can take away the pain
The pain of losing you, but ...

We can cry with hope
We can say goodbye with hope
'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no
And we can grieve with hope
'Cause we believe with hope
(There's a place by God's grace)
There's a place where we'll see your face again
We'll see your face again

And never have I known
Anything so hard to understand
And never have I questioned more
The wisdom of God's plan
But through the cloud of tears
I see the Father smile and say 'well done'
And I imagine you
Where you wanted most to be
Seeing all your dreams come true
'Cause now you're home
And now you're free, and ...

We can cry with hope
We can say goodbye with hope
'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no
And we can grieve with hope
'Cause we believe with hope
(There's a place by God's grace)
There's a place where we'll see your face again
We'll see your face again

We have this hope as an anchor
'Cause we believe that everything
God promised us is true, so ...

We can cry with hope
We can say goodbye with hope
'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no
And we can grieve with hope
'Cause we believe with hope
(There's a place by God's grace)
There's a place where we'll see your face again
We'll see your face again

We wait with hope
And we ache with hope
We hold on with hope
We let go with hope

What Matters Most

Barbra Streisand (2011):

It's not how long
We held each other's hand
What matters is how well
We loved each other
It's not how far
We traveled on our way
But what we found to say

It's not the springs we've seen
But all the shades of green
It's not how long I held you
In my arms
What matters is how sweet
The years together

It's not how many summer times
We have to give to fall
The early morning smiles
We wistfully recall
What matters most
Is that we loved at all

Thank you/killdoubt

Pure Imagination

Gene Wilder:

Hold your breath
Make a wish
Count to three
Come with me

And you'll be
In a world of
Pure imagination
Take a look
And you'll see
Into your imagination

We'll begin
With a spin
Traveling in
The world of my creation
What we'll see
Will defy

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Want to change the world?
There's nothing
To it

There is no
Life I know
To compare with
Pure imagination
Living there
You'll be free
If you truly wish to be

Thank you/zylcho

Omoiyari said...

there are 100000 pictures of Kristen smiling . But ,bloggers and Magazines print the few pictures where she isn't smiling .You can't have a real perspective of Kristen Stewart if you follow the tabs.Everything is a big fabrication.

"It's a huge form of entertainment"on kristen's shoulders. Sad ,really!



katy said...

Good morning Rose and Roseland,

Excellent post as alwaus!!

I share the same sentiment about
Rob and Kristen being
under the radar right now, as well. I'm pretty sure this is what they want and that it makes them happy...and if it makes them happy, then am happy as well.

Wishing everyone a great day. Take care

Annie said...

Morning all.
I think Kristen's doing just fine.

When people come at me with the line..."I read in a tabloid..."
I stop them right there ......With those five words, I know anything else they uttter will be pure bullshit- 'nuff said!
As for the Kristen never smiles.......Please! There are enough pics of her smiling to dismiss that one as the rubbish that it is!

Have a great day everybody.

bluebee said...

Hello Rose and everyone else. I'm pretty new here but I wanted to say I think you and I somehow have the same brother. Because the very same thing happened to me last Sunday. He showed me a pic he thought was funny about Emma Watson crying on her last Harry Potter premiere and Kristen being "emotionless" on her last Twilight premiere. I kind of went of at him. He believes in all the gossip without even knowing he's going it. So I got super protective. She's very dear to my heart and is the only actress I follow. I'm not interested in the rest because they seem so fake. Even when they smile, it feels like its plastered on. So when a young girl who is spunky, awkward,vulnerable, strong, shy, nervous, thoughtful during interviews, its going to catch my attention. She's convicted to stay true to herself and encourages other girls to do so. Someone who is that famous; she should have been applauded for that but no the public and media hates her for it. Kristen doesn't deserve the all the hate and ridicule thrown her way. And it bothers me a lot. So if someone is going to trash her in front of me, I'm not gonna let it slip.

Jeannie said...

Rose, this is just perfect. The timing and is just what we need during this RK drought.

"Just know that behind that curtain...Rob and Kristen are together. Happy. That's all that matters."

It is indeed! With all the crime, hate and sadness all around us, it makes me wonder about these people who hates on Kristen so much. Have they even stopped to think and ask themselves, WHY? Hate is such an evil thing, such a strong yet senseless emotion. It is so sad to carry on in life with that feeling towards someone they don't even personally know and don't know who they are either. They are lumped with a group called those "haters". What a sad, sad, life!

Well, we will let them be as we continue to support, love and admire two amazing people who continue to live their lives unaffected, the way they choose to...very much in love and together.

Thank you, Rose for sharing with us your wonderful thoughts and beautiful words about Rob and Kristen.

A quick "hi" to Roseland, RL is kicking my backside and I haven't been around much. Hope everyone is well and enjoying the holiday season.

Take care!

Holy said...

Hello everyone.

I love that R/K are off the grid,so they can enjoy each before they start working again.

@Ginger-where are you girl?

tufenuf55 said...

Kristen smiles when she has something to smile about. Huh! Imagine that...just like you and me. Ho Ho Ho

tufenuf55 said...

Just try not to smile and sigh...I double dog dare you!


DreamerKind said...

Hello, you lovelies!

Just finished reading this fascinating Kristen interview, by an intelligent interviewer, and it's just wow!


PamH said...

Hello Roseland

I don't have a defend Kristen story ( the opposite actually ) but I have a slap my nephew in the back of the head ( Emmett style ) story. My Nephew is on holiday break from college and stayed the night with us, as I'm setting at the table looking at Robsten Dreams, he's setting beside me and looks to see what I'm doing and I'm looking at the photo of K doing press for OTR from the 8th were she has on her glasses on and he looks up at me and says " Man, she can star in my Sexy Librarian and Hot for Teacher fantasies any day" I yell TMI and slap him on the back of his head....he is 19 after all...one track mind. Then later my hubby says wait till he finds out he can see her boobs in her new movie. LOL I told him if he said that to him I'd kill him.

@ Ginger
Looks like another snow storm coming your way

gargamel said...

Someday ...i might find an answer to my own fascination of kristen stewart. Im doing much better now and NO LONGER TRYING TO INJURE ANYONE who has a bad word or two for her. I still choose her MOVIE PREMIERES over family and friends' birthdays. But i resumed TUPPERWARE and CANDLE PARTIES now that TWILIGHT BLOCK PARTIES will be over. I can't wait for my COLLECTIONS to be featured in AMERICAN PICKERS show because i know they will be VALUABLE than grandmothers' teacups. I have instructed my nieces and nephews who grew up in my twilight world what to do with my EDWARD AND BELLA MEMENTOS in case my time on earth must end. I am in a very HAPPY PLACE with these TWO BEAUTIFUL CREATURES . And im still SLASHING PAPARAZZI tires. TABLOIDS WILL END....who says otherwise is so ...leave them to their opinion. WHO NEEDS TABLOIDS when we get info fresh and legit from real people. THOSE TABLOIDS that made friends with the ELF...DWARF...and other IMAGINARY FRIENDS will soon realize they are the only ones reading their fictions

Ginger with a Soul said...

Evening Ladies

Holy/Pam - I was prepping for the storm that is coming - supposed to be blizzard conditions by morning. Also went to our department xmas party which is always fun and usually ends in a fight - the fight was over gun control - ugh.

I have defending Kristen a couple times but the one that sticks out was over her acting as a co worker who loved her in Adventureland but was judging her on Twilight (which he loathes). These are the only roles he knew from her but by the end of the conversation he agreed to watch more of her movies before talking to me about it ever again. Most of the people I know don't judge the other stuff in general because they don't read tabloids - thank god for that

LIZ said...


God, I miss the kids ... (meaning RK in case you didn't know that, LOL) BUT, I'm so happy that they're under the radar right now. I hope they enjoy their holiday time together, maybe get to spend time with both of their families and friends. Would love to be a fly on the wall to see what Bear & Bernie get for Christmas!!!

BLUEBEE -- So glad you are here, we need new people so we don't get "stale" here with the same old group. As long as you love RK, you'll fit right in.

GARGAMEL -- Well said.


DK -- I can't wait to check out that interview, sounds really good.

GINGER -- I hope you behaved yourself at the office party. GUN CONTROL - I was in the grocery a couple of hours ago and got in a conversation with a 2nd grade teacher whose hubs is a school admin in our small town. Anyway, batten down the hatches, sounds like you have a blizzard coming. Guess you're going to have a white Christmas. We might have a little snow on Friday but nothing big. :(


LIZ said...

ON THE ROAD -- I am bummed, saw a list online of where it going to play and nowhere near me. That being said, you can rent Cosmopolis with VOD right now for only $3.99 for 3 days and watch on the laptop. I think I'll do that on Thurs. or Friday so I can watch it several times over the weekend. I can't wait.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Liz - LOL we don't drink for a reason - we are out of control sober but we all laugh even if we call each other names. I think HR would die if they ever heard even 5 minutes of any conversation going on - that is usually when we are at lunch.

LIZ said...

GINGER -- Oh, yea, know what you mean about HR knowing about convos. I can only imagine how some of our co-workers would react if they knew how invested we are in our fav couple, RK? I don't even want to think about it.

Back to reading!!! I'll expect pics of the blizzard ...

dirtydishes said...

Wow, I think I made it Liz.

dirtydishes said...

I have to say that I love that gif of KS where she is smiling. So beautiful.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Bluebee - welcome :)

@Liz -LOL they know but they don't know. There is only one person who is one of my best friends at work that really knows and she just rolls her eyes at me. I made the mistake of saying I read the books and the guys gave me non stop crap for days - I am the video game playing, tattoo getting, dirty mouthed rocker chick that wears black on valentines day - they couldn't get it.

PamH said...

Like you I don't think OTR will play anywhere near me so I'll have to wait for DVD. But my hubby just preordered Cosmopolis from Best Buy for me as a X MAS gift.

@ Ginger
Glad to hear your office party didn't get to out of hand.
I hope you make it through the storm without problems. We are supposed to get 1-3 inches but so far every time theyve said that we have not got anything.

Did anyone see the post on Hollywood Life about R&K having a tree decorating party? At least it's a good made up post instead of something negative, but does anyone still believe that their close friends would ever tell something so private.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Pam - nope I bet their friends hate the media as much as they do

LIZ said...

DIRTYDISHES -- Glad to see you here, hope you are having a good evening.

PAMH -- I have also preordered Cosmo but won't ship until 1/1 ... I'm going to do the Amazon VOD. I did that with BelAmi and was happy I got to watch it for 3 days even though only on the laptop.

GINGER -- LOL, yea, I'm sure some people would be surprised at your "soft" side ... you don't fool me!!!

I'm outa here, my bedtime. Goodnight, All!!!

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Liz - Hahaha - I am sweet as pie ;) just never been on the overly girlie side of the world.

bluebee said...

I probably won't comment much but thank you so much for your welcome Liz and Ginger. Been lurking here for about two years; farmiliar with many if the names. That sounds a bit creepy. I believe this is my third comment lol . And yes big RK fan, love them both in their adorable awkwardness. :)

LIZ said...

BLUEBEE -- I certainly hope you will start commenting more now that you've "broken the ice" so to speak. We all have that common bond here, our love for RK and their careers.

Okay, I'm stepping away from the laptop and going to bed. Gotta work in the morning, ugh ...

Kelly said...

Oh Rose, you always know just what to say. I love your thoughts and words, and it's so great to come here and feel the love. I too, am glad Kristen and Rob are under the radar, they friggin deserve it so much! I hope you, your family, and friends have a wonderful Christmas! Of course I wish that for Rob and Kristen too! Merry Christmas to all in Roseland! xoxo 1918EC

26 Acts Of Kindness To Show Love Wins


Judy Garland (Rare Radio 1937):

If you just stop to think
Here's a lesson for you
What a word or a smile can convey

With a word you can make someone
Happy or blue
With a smile you can make them
Sad or gay

So be careful what you say
And be careful how you smile
It's so easy for us to make
Someone's life worthwhile

There are smiles
That make us happy
There are smiles
That make us blue

There are smiles
That steal away the teardrops
Like the sunbeams
Steal away the dew

There are smiles
That have a tender meaning
That the eyes of love
Alone can see

But the smiles
That fill my life with sunshine
Are the smiles
That you gave to me

Thank you/MicheleBell1

DreamerKind said...

Hi, and Happy Holidays!
This year, I've given up on voting on polls, although I consider them a small showing of love for something/someone.
Seems I gotta do "real" good works in my life. Rob and Kristen won't mind if I do, I'd bet my usual hundo.

In your memory
To live evermore

Something heard long ago
When two hearts were aglow
And the world
Was a dream to explore

Where there's love
There's a theme
That you found in your dream
And the thrill of it
Lives in your heart

To the sky
Let it soar
To your heart
There's a score

Where's there's love
You'll find a song
All through the ages it plays
Don't let your theme get away

Where there's love
There's a wonderful heart
Where there's love
You'll find a song

Thank you/stephenjoeagi

Hump day is a good thing.
All things bright and beautiful are precious moments.

Bye for now.

Robsten Dreams has pics of Rob out last night with Nick (and maybe Dean)can't really tell. Rob is wearing his MTV jacket; he's clean-shaven and looks like he may have a buzz cut?

twilightnan said...

OMG!!!..even just to see your Banner is worth a visit to your Blogsite..today is exceptionally Beautiful!!!..I love it<333

PamH said...

I guess the comments of him in NY to make some commercial could be true but I can't imagine what for unless it's for Dior or just a photoshoot. Looks like he has a new haircut.

To all the new people
WELCOME!!! and please comment as much as you want we always like new points of view.


Ginger with a Soul said...

Morning - all bundled up as the snow is a falling sideways because of the wind but hey I have fuzzy penguin jammies on so it is all good.

@Pam - it could be Dior but no one is sure - looks like he shaved his head but who knows maybe the sides are just shaved.

Welcome to all the new people as well !!!

Kriseala said...

Thank you Rose for always protected,defending,supported ,respected and loving for rob and kristen.I really love your blog,eventhough I don't comment all the time but I always come here everyday to read your wonderful post and all the comments of those who come to your blog.I'm so protected of kristen and it's hurts me to read all the negatives toward her so I just visit onyl the site that I know who appreciate,respect and love her and avoided all the blog who talk rubbish on her.I love them together and I always include them to my prayer everyday.

PamH said...

@ Ginger
Sounds like you are comfy while the snow falls :)
It does seem odd that we have heard no news about Dior so who knows but I think your right about Rob' s hair just being shaved on the sides, his hair is probably stuffed under his hat.

dirtydishes said...

Thanks, PamH... I'm new here. I've been a lurker for over a year. Love what you do, Rose.

Holy said...

Hello ladies and gents.

@gargamel-hello to you,where have you been.

@Ginger-hey are you enjoying your day?Is it true that Ben A. dropped Focus,due to schedule conflict?Damn I like the guy.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Pam - the snow stopped so we ended up with just super cold weather and wind more than snow. It will be interesting whatever the reason he is there - they obviously want to keep it a surprise so we will have to be like kids on Christmas and wait for it LOL

@Holy - he did drop. I like Ben in general but since it is WB they will find someone of equal stature to replace him. Rumor is he might be running for Senate and he has another film that would conflict with a April start day according to the news. Either way if the film goes forward I bet they will find a male lead that will do a great job with Kristen. Another thing we get to sit and wait to be surprised about - Ha

gargamel said...

In lalaland. Ive spun a web from nonstop twirling.
Happy that the TWO are BUSY with EACH OTHER! Cheering for the squeaky bed frame.

gargamel said...

My love for RK makes me happy.I refuse to be sad.

gargamel said...


gargamel said...

Lordie i hope im thinking what youre thinking

LIZ said...

DIRTYDISHES -- Welcome to LALA LAND!!! Sometimes we "pretend" that we are in the bar in LALA LAND and sometimes we get up and TWIRL ...

You are very welcome and I look forward to exchanging comments with you. I work all the time so don't get to comment to often.

PamH said...

I had no idea Ben dropped from the movie, I wonder who will be his replacement ? Do you all have a favorite in mind ?

It does seem like we have a lot to wait and see for R&K.

PamH said...

@ dirtydishes
I think most of us started out as lurkers until we made that first comment that's let us all meet some wonderful people. I'm looking forward to talking with you :)

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Pam - I have heard Rob (we know it won't happen but yeah), Gosling, Craig, Clooney, Bomer, Leo, you name it - anyone big the name has been thrown out by the fans

My realistic vote would be Bomer or Cavill

Annie said...

I don't think it's a bad thing at all that Ben Affleck is no longer attached to Focus.

I expect that they are some already talking shit but vultures will be vultures.

DreamerKind said...

Evening! My pure fantasy choices are:

Keanu Reeves, Jude Law or Robert Downey Jr!

Annie said...

How about Lee Pace?

Pattybg said...



Topaz Emerald said...

I hope they leave the romance out of it. I just want to see a comedy. Am very glad Ben A. pulled out. I don't see him pairing very well with Kristen at all. I can think of so many young male actors that would pair well with Kristen.

LIZ said...

I wouldn't be surprised if WB doesn't hire someone less known and save themselves some bucks. They know that Kristen Stewart's name is enough to draw the crowd ... so I wouldn't be surprised if they find someone decent looking who isn't quite "A" list. It's ALL about profits ... Remember Rob's remarks during the promo about Kristen having the most influence in Hollywood? He was only half-kidding, I think he was pretty serious.

ANNIE -- As much as I like Lee Pace, PLEASE don't let them use someone who was involved with Twilight, would be too hard for some of us, LOL.

PAMH -- Hi, are you expecting snow in KY? I think we're supposed to get some on Friday here in NC mountains. It's about time, we still have some green grass here, only snow is on the ski slopes because of snowmaking :(

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Annie - there was a lot of shit talking but you know that is all that comes out their mouth and their brains - crap

Lee Pace wouldn't be so bad either

Pattybg said...


Ginger with a Soul said...

@Patty - I hope he is ok - jammies are a good thing - the fuzzier the better

Annie said...

Liz: :) :)

Annie said...

Hi Ginger: Onto the keyboard from their mouths, their brains, their asses.......Any body part with a crack apparently.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Annie - waves - always but I do laugh a lot about how much time they spend on her - shows who they are truly obsessed with and any buzz is buzz so they help her even more with all the talking they do about her. I am sure she just frets over them when she takes their ticket money straight to the bank because you know they go see her movies too :)

Pattybg said...



Annie said...

Ginger: Waving back. :)

I can't wait to see OTR on Friday!

LIZ said...

What about Justin Timberlake? He's about the right age and he can be funny ...

Holy said...

@Ginger-thanks.And you right it's WB,they will not just pick anybody.I'm hoping for Viggo,Keanu,Clive Owen or Robert Downy.

@gargamel-I glad you never stop twirling.LOL

Will be seeing OTR this Friday,so excited.

tufenuf55 said...

Let's don't forget that the person who teaches Kristen is "older". It took that to mean someone in their 40's and someone who is good in comedies. How about Bradley Cooper; Ryan Reynolds; Greg Kennear? I'm sure you can think of others, but these the ones who first come to mind.

tufenuf55 said...

I want to see Kristen in a comedy. She deserves a lot of laughter in her life after what she has been through. I love Kristen and will always support her!

Kami said...

You know, since this movie is supposed to be about an older con man and a young woman, what if they have her paired up with someone really unexpected, but who has proven they can work with someone young and can pull it off. Maybe if they tone down the 'romance' it could work. Clint Eastwood

tufenuf55 said...

If this is true, let the twirling commence!

Kristen and Rob had a small, intimate Christmas tree decorating party on Sunday. They have a gorgeous tree set up at Kristen's where Rob pretty much lives now," showbizspy.com quoted a source as saying

Annie said...

Kami: I like that suggestion. :)

tufenuf55 said...

OooH! Clint. Yes, Yes and Yes! He would be a great mentor on screen and as a director which she hopes to be one day.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Liz - Don't know if JT can pull the con artist part off but he can be funny.

@Annie - OTR is actually going to be in a theater close to me in Jan so I will have to venture downtown to go see it.

@Holy yup - to me it looks like they want big names all around for this one.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Kami - they would have to cut the romance completely out because for me that would be way to big of an age difference. People were freaking over the age difference between Ben and Kristen - Clint could be her great grandfather.

Annie said...

They would have to rewrite the script.........Clint as her grandfather trying to keep her out of the family business?
The comedic aspect of it would still be there.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Annie - hmmm someone suggested Johnny Depp hadn't thought of him - maybe. If they are going for an April date I am not sure they would have time for a complete script re-write.

Annie said...

Ginger: JD?...Love Johnny Depp but no, not quite feeling that pairing. :)

Holy said...

@Ginger-WB wants the big star all the time.As I remember the first TW was pick up by them but they wanted to cast the movie with big names in HW.It was Summit who take a risk of producing the movie and definitely hit the jackpot.What I heard was that WB regretted they're decision.

Holy said...

@Ginger-I have a feeling that they will give the part to Johnny Depp.

Holy said...

@Ginger-or Christian Bale.

Ginger with a Soul said...

Annie/Holy - Ok maybe Paul Walker?

Holy said...

@Ginger-I hope so.I love Paul Walker.How about Vin Diesel.But you know Johnny D,Christian B,are WB favorites.

Annie said...

Ginger: Hmm.......
His resume needs a comedy. Maybe. :)

PamH said...

We are estimated to get 1-3 inches with colder temp. but they've predicted that a couple times already and we got nothing....my son is hoping for snow after New Years so his break will last longer.

You said my first pick with Cavill. Of coarse we all want Rob but know that ain't happening for a while. I'd love to see them in a comedy type movie together.

We know she works well with Ryan Reynolds and I could see Justin Timberlake or Bradley Cooper as well...so many choices

Robert said...

i wish ben was available, because he was so good in chasing amy,

but since he's not, could this role [a warner brothers comedy about a grifter in his late 30's who takes a young girl in her early twenties under his wing] be meant for anybody else, but robert downey jr, he would be perfect

Annie said...

Hello Robert...........Goodnight ladies.

Topaz Emerald said...

Am back from dinner with my hubby...

First just want to say hello to everyone.....

If the script calls for romance with an older man, the only way I can see an older man pairing with Kristen is if their characters have a relationship like Bill Murray and Scarlett Johanssen in Lost in Translation, which was an excellent movie. If it goes further than that, then I will freak out.

Plus, I thought Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone were first cast in it, then they both dropped out. They are both young actors. So why does the script have to call out for an older con artist? Did they change the script?

My pick: James Franco (36 yrs. I think), I think he can pull off the comedic role, and he's still gorgeous.

If WB want to find someone older: I just looked at a list of actors in their 40s: I would go with either one of these who I think can be comedic....Brad Pitt (but I just don't see him accepting this role) or Josh Duhamel (did anyone watch Win a Date with Tad Hamilton? I thought he was funny without even trying).

Topaz Emerald said...

Brad Pitt

Josh Duhamel

James Franco

Annie said...

Morning all.

Topaz Emerald: Clint Eastwood was suggested and if he is in the mix, an actor the age of Clint Eastwood, then there would need to be a script change......The age difference is too vast and it just would not work.

The script does not have to be changed if the actors chosen are in the same age range as Gosling/Stone who dropped out.

Annie said...

It is very possible that WB will go for a seasoned comedic actor.

LIZ said...


I hope everyone is healthy and happy and looking forward to Christmas. I really hope that no one is stuck in a blizzard or in an airport, sounds horrible.

I imagine that Rob is home with the "family" since we've not seen him in a couple of days. I believe they took a private plane to NYC.


Ginger with a Soul said...

@Liz - whatever he is shooting in NY is being shot right now I guess. People are pretty convinced it is Dior so where ever he is going it will be later today or tomorrow

LIZ said...

GINGER -- Finally saw some tweets about it. We don't know for sure it's Dior, do we? Hopefully we'll find out something even if no pics.

Kami said...

Ginger, I was joking. I cannot even begin to imagine them pairing Clint Eastwood with anyone Kristen's age in a romantic situation.

As for Ben dropping out of the movie, happens all the time. If they make the movie I'm sure they'll find someone perfect for the role.

Kami said...

Isn't Johnny Depp near 50?

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Kami - I literally gagged when you said that I was like um pass. Johnny is older but he looks younger - the man has great gene's. Paul Walker is 39 and he looks younger too. Plus he has that smart ass grin. I still will go with my 1st 2 though - Cavill is probably my #1

Ginger with a Soul said...

@LIZ - so much confusion going on - now they are not sure it is his shoot as he was seen shooting 2 days ago. This would most likely not be Dior and maybe I am the odd ball in this but I find it hard to think he would shave the famous mop for a Dior commercial. I think I am going to sit this one out because 1+1 is not 2 right now.

LIZ said...

GINGER -- I'm with you, doesn't add up. Do we even KNOW for sure that he's there? Unlikely since he wasn't pic'd yesterday at all. LOL, he's probably lying by the pool at home, looking at twitter and laughing...

PamH said...

@ Annie, LIZ, Kami, Ginger and anyone I missed or lurking
Waves :)

I'm like you on thinking if Rob has a shaved head I can't see it being Dior, they are going to want the HAIR, but he could just have short sides with longer hair hidden under cap. If not Dior then I can't even guess what he could be doing. It couldn't be related to his upcoming project could it ?

We never seen airport photos so it seems like he went private so he could still be there or home...until someone leaks some info...we may not know.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Pam - it could be related to a role or something we just don't know that he has on his plate. I guess we shall eventually see - with no sightings on him for the second day we can't even say if he is in NY - the are ninja's for sure

Topaz Emerald said...

Has anyone read that indiewire interview with Kristen Stewart? Overall, it was a great interview, but she also answers with great enthusiasm about her possibly doing SWATH 2. But then I remember watching a roughcut MTV video interview where Josh H. asked her whether she would consider returning, and maybe it's just me, but she answered that she would consider it, but her answer seemed scripted (maybe in the beginning she had signed a contract to do a sequel and isn't allowed to say anything other than yes it's possible she be back), a little cautious (esp. when she quickly glanced over to her left at someone, her publicist maybe?), and dull. She didn't look or sound enthused like the answer she gave for Indiewire. So I'm willing to bet that the answers she gave regarding SWATH 2 originated back in May during Cannes press interviews and they just stuck her answer in there simply because they can.

Considering everything that's happened to her in the past few months, I would be lying if I said I wanted her to return as Snow. And do we even know who else will return as actor, actress, and yes, director? This is getting more and more bizarre. And I'm now starting to think we know less and less about anything that happened in the last few months. At this point, as I write this, I give up on feeling so emotionally invested with this fascinating couple because after having read that article, I don't know what to believe anymore. I guess we will just have to wait and see. From now on, I will just watch as events unfold in the coming months and just be happy that they both gave us Twilight no matter what happens.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

TOPAZ. I would rather see K as SW but with a different director ! Lol

Hi Everybody. My friend is home with Hospice care. I just got home from visiting her. She is slowly slipping away from us ... Still engaged in brief conversation and then she falls asleep... But she is not in pain so I am happy for that

Hope everyone is having a good week

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Topaz - I think it is old as well because all the newer interviews she just seems over it and they would most likely return with her and not him if it is ever made since she was the draw to begin with.

@Super - I am so sorry about your friend and with the holidays around the corner it is a million times harder. My dearest sympathy to you, her and her family.

Topaz Emerald said...

Super RN and Ginger, waves :) and waves to everyone else on this blog.

I guess whatever happens will happen. I really don't feel bothered anymore either way because this whole thing has gotten too bizarre. LOL :)

PamH, is it you the kindergarten teacher? waves :) I'm waiting to go back to school to take Early Childhood Education classes. Hopefully everything will work out.

tufenuf55 said...

What about Mark Walberg for Focus? He's the right age and I heard he was pretty funny in the movie Ted.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Topaz - waves - It is JMF that teaches kindergarten

Either way if she does it she does it - it is a movie and I am sure if she is doing it both her and Rob are all good with it. It was money wise a better movie for Universal and I would go see it, I liked the 1st one and really I like both Kristen and Rob's work so if it is a movie that seems up my alley I see it :)

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Liz - he is still in NYC and was at the Wardolf (just saw a fan pic) - so the mystery of what is for continues.......

Stella said...

Good evening, all!
Ginger, forgive my ignorance, but what is Wardolf?

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Stella - a hotel in NYC :)

Stella said...

Ok, thanks, I was curious ;)

Topaz Emerald said...

Ginger, thanks I forgot who it was, there's so many ladies here :)

My husband and I are not movie goers, we prefer to wait for the movie to come out on DVD, but for me, it's the same, like you, I will get my ass to the theater and watch if it seems up my alley. I liked the first one too, maybe the direction was kind of flawed and I thought it deserved another full hour of footage, but overall it was a good movie. I am curious what the new script is now. I mean Ravenna is dead. I wonder who will be the evil character.

Holy said...

Hello guys.

@Ginger-hey there.Rob shave his head though,so we don't know what commercial he's doing.

@Tuf-I agree with Mark W also.There's to many actors to chose.

Topaz Emerald said...

Ginger, it is probably a Dior commercial. I have a feeling he didn't want to get founded out. I mean, there has been no official announcement. Just saw the fan pics at Robstendreams. He looks tired, though. Good for him if it is, more money in the bank, more money he can share with those he loves :)

Topaz Emerald said...

A shaved head, perhaps a new Rob, a new look for 2013, with all his cool movies pending. Can't wait for The Rover, Hold Onto Me, Queen of the Desert. Never been so excited for Rob's new projects :) Go Robert!

PamH said...

Good evening all

Rob is definitely keeping us guessing...wonder if he's doing some secret shopping for K while there ?

I liked SW and if K is part of the next I would see it for her, but I can't see her ever doing it unless it's a different director, she was always what made the movie worth watching anyway. If she does continue I'm sure she's aware of the questions and comments from the media and people would come from that. They would use that as a means to bring him up...even with a different director attached.

@ Super
I'm so sorry about your friend. My deepest sympathy to you and her family.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Topaz - he seemed surprised people found him although someone had loose lips. The one fan and her we always know where you are would have made me side eye her and alert security - umm. So one of the girls was under the impression he was leaving tonight so he is either LA or London bound.

Topaz Emerald said...

Ginger, I think the stalker fans are harmless, but still, I would never do something like that.

yeah, waiting to see what happens next....will be very interesting:)

Hi PamH,

I'm sure she is aware, that's why it will be interesting if she returns, like what does it mean, you know?

Topaz Emerald said...

oh my god, Ginger, just saw that ilovepattinson tweet about him cursing on set and what you just said about we always know where you're at Rob. What a stalker, oh my god with this fandom. *shakes head* how embarrassing.

Topaz Emerald said...

some people in this fandom are truly obsessed. They have no shame in stalking him.*let me roll my eyes*

off to dinner now with my hubby.....

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Topaz - I couldn't imagine actually saying that to someones face - that in itself is creepy stuff

DreamerKind said...

Hey there!

The Waldorf hotel, in NYC, where my favorite pop composer, Cole Porter, lived for many years, is that where Roberto stayed?

I am creating new cocktails again, although not trying for organic or healthy ones. My "Fizzy Tangueray Gimlet" is delicious but so strong, it must be a good value, for one is enough. You know what I mean? I will share the recipe with anyone who likes gin, pineapple and lime together. Email me.

And, where is my snow? Out in my kid's area, a blizzard and near my bro, too. I am south of them and lacking the white stuff I love (in small amounts).

Holy said...

@Super-sorry to hear about your friend.My prayers to her and her family.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@DK - that is where this commercial was shot (people still guessing Dior) on the 18th floor

DreamerKind said...

Looking forward to Rob in any capacity! He's, the Man. I love all things French (like Dior, Chanel) I confess.
Son said there is no blizzard out by him, that it's a media hype/scare us type of situation. 24 hours news/weather, ha, ha. Silly me!

Was this fan stalking the hotel or somewhere else?
I'm surprised that if this commercial was shot in such a public place there hasn't been a lot more lip yapping on twitter about it.

Love that he is always with Rob. Can we say from Summit hired to personal bodyguard now?

Really cannot wait to see his upcoming movies, so exciting. Robert and Guy, Robert and Carey, Robert, Naomi, and Jude, oh my god! especially Robert and Carey, cannot wait!
Robert and Saddam Hussein? oh no.

It's Not For Me To Say

Johnny Mathis (1957):

Though we try to be masters
Of our souls
And captains of our fate

It's the lucky ones
Who achieve their goals
While others have to wait

Our destiny is mostly bought
And paid for us
The really big decisions
All are made for us

So it's not for me to say
You love me
It's not for me to say
You'll always care

Oh, but here for the moment
I can hold you fast
And press your lips to mine
And dream that love will last

As far as I can see
This is heaven
And speaking just for me
It's ours to share

Perhaps the glow
Of love will grow
With every passing day

Or we may never meet again
But then
It's not for me to say

Thank you/Robert Silvestri

Topaz Emerald said...

@DK, you always say the right things :) Always best to be positive.

And that Johnny Mathis song, first time hearing it, is so soothing and lovely...can listen to it multiple times, thank you for sharing:)

All Christmas shopping done! Yea!!! Now for the wrapping and cooking tomorrow. Going to make peanut butter fudge, pecan (Pee-Can) pies, pumpkin pies, sweet potato loaf cake. My contribution to family Christmas Dinner. It's a wonderful time to be alive. My prayers to our soldiers who can't make it home; children who lost their young lives and the families to miss them sooo very much. God Bless America!
