In Oversaturation News, 20/20 Did A Whole Special On The Kristen Stewart Cheating Scandal

Listen, I am an entertainment news blogger. I like when dramatic things happen in the celebrity world, because it gives me stuff to write about. That said, even I am tired of the coverage of the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal. After the first couple days of genuine news being reported, there was no new information, so the endless speculation began. Would Robert Pattinson forgive her? Is it all a publicity stunt to increase anticipation for Twilight? Or Rupert Sanders‘ career? Or his wife Liberty Ross‘s career? Is K-Stew now sleeping with Giovanni Agnelli? Are they both secretly gay? Or vampires? Or gay vampires?

With a few exceptions (gay vampires) I’ve actually written about a good number of those theories, so I can’t deny that it’s good fodder for the ol’ rumor mill, but enough is enough, right? At some point we have to admit that we don’t know anything about these peoples’ lives, and go back to reporting actual (ish) facts, don’t we? DON’T WE?

Nope! Not according to 20/20, which aired a special last night about cheaters caught on film, which was called ‘The Camera Never Lies’. It featured a bunch of celebrity couples who broke up because of a public scandal, including Jude Law and Sienna Miller, Anderson Cooper, LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian, and, of course, Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Because we just can’t seem to get enough of them.

Now, aside from the fact that the R-Patz / K-Stew story has already had the living shit reported out of it, let’s just note for a moment the inherent problems with the name of the special: ‘The Camera Never Lies’. Sure, that applies really well to celebrities who get caught on tape being unfaithful the their spouses or significant others — your partner can lie, but the camera can’t! Every picture that you ever see is completely faithful to life. There’s no such thing as Photoshop or PR stunts or even staged photoshoots. Every actress requests that none of the cellulite on her legs be edited out of pictures, and we can be absolutely and completely positive that Kristen Stewart did knowingly cheat on Robert Pattinson with Rupert Sanders in full view of the paparazzi in front of a tourist destination.

I’m not saying that photos don’t tell their own truths. If you’re a non-famous person and you think your spouse is cheating on you, by all means hire a private detective and document their every move. The photos that you get out of that could tell any number of stories, just like the photos of Kristen and Rupert tell the story of them being together. Whether they were or weren’t is anybody’s guess, and everybody — literally everybody — is guessing.

      Like who would tell anyone that? None of her friends or her peeps would talk to anyone!!! dot believe it, they are getting creepy and trying to paint her like she needs to committed to a hosp. If the scandal is true she maybe very sad and many more emotions but I really would hope that her family, agents ever her stylist will get her help. If I had all this crap I dont know if I could deal

    • http://robinvandam1.tumblr.com/ Robin Van Dam

      I know I couldn’t deal with it. I’d be scared to death some crazed fan would try to kill me in the name of “Love for RPattz”! Yeesh, they need to calm the situation, not inflame it!

    • nena

      Hey your post on the article about LS forgiving RS for KS afair, that long one, it was interesting. Is it all your opinion or do you know something?? I wish he had done something before.

    • http://profiles.google.com/holly.slavic Aitch Slavic

      The friends who know are not talking and if they are talking they are not friends. I do believe that.

      I think Kris must have quite a psychological burden right now–I am not believing that she and Rob set this all up to get more privacy–or whatever the set-up theories are now–she is obviously too distressed-do you not think?

    • nena

      it still could have been set up by RS

    • http://profiles.google.com/holly.slavic Aitch Slavic

      That is where the 20/20 needs to investigate. What are we NOT seeing in the series of photos–just like we have been talking about on Crushable site.

    • nena

      I know how can journalists not investigate, I thought they were above the papz, It is just making me so mad, a blurb on extra is onething but this?????

    • http://profiles.google.com/holly.slavic Aitch Slavic

      It is the “tabloidization” of news and news programs.

    • nena

      I sent a reply to ABC to complain wont do any good but I felt better

    • lillicat

      Absolutely!

    • lillicat

      The mob mentality of the crazed fans, the pappz, and the gossip sites have to be a mental strain on both of them , PR stunt or not.

      It is really draggin down his reputation. He may have thousands of fans, but it doesn’t show at the box office. It odes create a Debordian SPECTACLE for the media which translates into talk for the show, shooting, premiere, whatever that he is doing that the hosts, directors, producers like. Sort of like when the fans yell in the football stadium to cheer on the team. To intimidate the other team with their noise. We used to have to do this in junior high. It worked. We always had a winning football team.

    • lillicat

      LOL, yes, she sleeps with plush toys that RPattz gave her. She is really down on herself and wants him back.

  • nena

    • s

    • nena

  • http://profiles.google.com/holly.slavic Aitch Slavic

    I am going to take it that 20/20 had no new information?
    Did they interview the papz and see how they pulled off their coup that day?

    Someone tell me please?

    • http://robinvandam1.tumblr.com/ Robin Van Dam

      Go to ABC.com and watch it.

    • http://profiles.google.com/holly.slavic Aitch Slavic

      thank you

    • nena

  • http://robinvandam1.tumblr.com/ Robin Van Dam

    That was a great article! I love your tenacity! You have a lot of guts going up against a big TV enterprise! I hope they noticed and sign you on! Great job! Definately tweeting and FBing this one!

    U KNOW these extreme Twilight obsessions were PREVENTABLE, and SO many Twilight Fans are STILL in emotional turmoil because of this Robsten breakup scandal. Hollywood intentionally causing young, obsessed fans this kind of pain is wrong. They make money by making fun of Twilight and then laughing at the emotional turmoil it causes. TIME to start thinking about putting blame where it belongs – Stephenie Meyer. Search “explain twilight breaking dawn ending blog”.

  • Peony

    The way i see it : Robsten never existed.It was a PR stunt right from the start.Fans romanticized over them to the point of obsession.This was perhaps the best way to split Robsten while ensuring that they extracted the most out of the entire stunt.Yes,with the exception of Kristen ,every body gained.

    • nena

      see I dont think so no one can fake it for 3 years, and the way they interacted… It may have started that way but It didnt end that way, they do love each other imho

  • Peony

    Nena,thats the way you see it.Is it not uncanny that Robsten who were supposed to be oh so private,suddenly started being more public,started talking about each other in terms of boy friend/girlfriend,just look at the timing of all thisit reeks of PR.I believe nothing is true in Hollywood.

    • nena

      I know. I do think it’s PR just not to break them up way to much overkill for that I used to think that all 4 were involved but I’m really starting to see that RP and KS are really hurting , but if you noticed who is NOT suffering at all? LS and RS arnt suffering at all. And they have gotten so much sure RP has been offered roles and cosmopolis has done ok but he is suffering. LS has scripts going her wayand RS was given another movie everyone know their names now.

  • TheRedGirl

    If you’re so tired of this, just like most rational thinking people, why are you still writing about it? Everyday is a different story about their break up (no evidence they broke up), everything they’ve gone through since (no credible evidence of that either) and other crap. Fact is, no one knows what’s really going on with them and continually writing this BS won’t change that fact.
