THANK GOD FOR THE FIRST AMENDMENT, which, among other things allows us to fill our own tediously boring lives with wild speculation about celebrities’ love lives. And just in case you’re really feeling empty, we’ve got scads of deliriously good gossip to pass on.
For starters, sniff sniff, the London Sun is reporting that the sun is setting on Twilight lovers Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
Stewart “was supposed to be Rob’s date for the Golden Globes, but he told her he wants to cool it off,” a source blabs to the tabloid. “He loves her but would rather go back to being good friends so they can rebuild their trust and focus on work after Twilight‘ Kristen’s upset but understands. She shouldn’t have pushed him to reconcile after her infidelity. She’s hoping he’ll come around and time will be a great healer.”
Wonderwall points out that — hello! — Stewart in fact did hang with RPatz in the wee hours following the awards show. But we all know that’s not the same thing as showing up arm-in-arm to one of Hollywood’s hottest annual events. So let’s all take solace in the fact that, just like vampires, love never dies.
Which, conveniently, is a nice transition to Jennifer Lopez’s standing ovation for ex-fiance Ben Affleck at Sunday night’s Golden Globes. The B boy (the B stands for Boston) stole the limelight by winning two trophies –Best Director and Best Picture — for his “based on a true story” spy caper Argo. JLo tells Ellen DeGeneres that she stood for her ex flame because “it was a nice to see him have that moment. I was really happy for him.” The actress/songstress revisited the media maelstrom that accompanied the two when they were dating. “They were really hard on us in the press when we dated back in the day. On movies and things like that, so it was a nice moment.” Lopez, who attended the party with current boy toy Casper Smart, had other brushes with exes at the event: both Diddy and Bradley Cooper were at the shindig, but Lopez was nonplussed by the encounters. “[It’s not uncomfortable}, because I see them a lot,” she says. “Because we’re in the same business. We run in the same circles.” The degree of separation is cut to two when you’re a club member of La La Land.
And speaking of la la land, this time spelled with little “l’s”, there is some mind-blowing cray spilling about our most reliable crazy Lindsay Lohan, newly nicknamed “Cinnamon Champagne” by Gawker. Star magazine is claiming that the sullied starlet is keeping the company of men in exchange for cash and prizes. Or, to quote Lilo’s father in the tab: “She is getting paid to date rich men,” Michael said of his 26-year-old daughter. “Dina (Lindsay’s mother) is pimping her out –- it’s disgusting!” Of course, today he is vehemently denying the statement to TMZ.
But another source confirmed to Star: “The dates last for days, and the guys pay for everything – hotel, travel costs, food, whatever – as well as jewelry and other gifts.”
Seems wealthy men will pay for crazy to accompany them, though Radar reiterates that no one claims she’s doing anything other than being arm candy.
Gawker points out that the much-ballyhooed New York Times Magazine profile of the starlet provides circumstantial evidence to the claim:
“A few tables away, a distinguished-looking middle-aged man patiently waits for the actress. He has a stack of presents for her. “
Just a perpetual party girl trying to make living. I wonder what the heavy hitters in prison will pay?
