Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart’s Trial Separation
As previously reported, before leaving for his shoot in Australia, Rob proposed a trial separation to Kristen, enacting a no-contact policy for the two months he’s supposed to be Down Under. Kristen wasn’t thrilled with the idea, but went along with it hoping that it would bring the two closer together. Sadly, a source told HollywoodLife.com that Rob is preparing for the end of the relationship.
Do you think Rob and Kristen are Hollywood’s sexiest couple, HollywoodLifers?
Warning: The following contains massive and dynamic spoilers from the Fringe series finale.
For a moment there, as the Fringe series finale barreled toward a close, you thought it might play out another way.
But it didn’t.
With Michael back in the team’s custody, Walter, Peter, Olivia et al resumed their plan to assemble a contraption that would transport the “child” Observer to 2167, where he would convince a scientist in Oslo, Norway to reconsider his plan to create what would become the evil invaders. To that end, they needed an “ignition” device, but Windmark’s team beat them to that crucial part, hijacking it from September’s sympathetic (and doomed) cohort December. Cue Astrid’s “shining moment”: the suggestion that they hijack one of the Observers shipping lane, using one of those cool cubes to reverse its flow, allowing Michael to enter, and exit in the future.
But who would lead the boy?
Walter knew it was his fate, in part because “nature abhors a paradox” — and the solution to this one was “deleting” him and Michael.
“You will never see me again,” he informed his son Peter, “to assure the future of humanity. Your future with Olivia. Your future with Etta.
“I cheated fate to be with you,” he continued, calling their time together as father and son was “stolen.” Even so, and given all they’ve been through, and in light of how it must end, “I wouldn’t change it for the world,” Walter professed. “I don’t want to say goodbye, but I will say, ‘I love you, son.’”
Peter, crestfallen, confirmed: So, a world without Observers means you and Michael have to finish your lives in future? “I know in my soul this is what I’m supposed to do,” Walter insisted, as they pulled one another into a strong, warm hug, tears welled in all four eyes. “You are my favorite thing, Peter…. My very favorite thing.”
But as noted above, we were teased with an alternate ending, when Walter later discovered that September had used the last time travel-enabling inoculation shot on himself, so that he could lead Michael to his world-saving destiny. September spoke of the emotions he felt upon being reunited with the boy, and how witnessed Walter interact with Peter gave clarity to his confusion. “When I saw what Peter meant to you, then I understood and why [my feelings] were important,” he said. “When I take his hand and I lead him [to 2167], he’ll know that I love him.” Walter explained, “That’s being a father.”
Reiterating his resolve, September assured Walter, “It’s not about fate, yours or mine. It’s about changing fate. It’s about hope and protecting our children.”
September’s highly altruistic gesture, however, was met with a change-of-fate of its own. As the Fringe team labored to hold off Windmark’s men as the shipping lane opened up — and after the cruel Captain himself was blindsided and crushed by a telekentically shoved truck — September was felled by a bullet just shy of his leaping-off point. Michael briefly mourned his father figure with a playing of the “Greensleeves” music box, then was met by a new leading hand. Walter’s. Peter mouthed, “I love you” to his father as he escorted Michael to the future, and….
We’re back in the park, from the opening scene of Season 5. Only this time when Peter calls for young Etta, saying it’s time to go home, she makes it into his arms, running. And he twirls her, while mom Olivia beams.
It is about hope and protecting our children. It is about changing fate.
I’ll have a more complete recap/additional thoughts posted on Saturday, but until then, this is your place to weigh in on Fringe‘s series finale. Was it, as Joshua Jackson assessed for us, “Correct”?
Another day, another sexy pic from Rihanna on Instagram! Now that she and Chris are speaking again, is she teasing him with this sexy shot?
It was a rough week for Chris Brown and Rihanna. The tumultuous twosome weren’t speaking for much of it, but it seems all that has been set aside. The two were spotted in the same recording studio in West Hollywood on Jan. 17, reuniting to record together. A day later, the pop princess posted a steamy photo on her Instagram account. A present for Chris?
The Unapologetic artist took to her Instagram account on Jan. 18 and shared the racy pic, which catches her on all fours, with her fingers provocatively placed near her mouth. Covering the 24-year-old’s eyes is a black bar with the word “porn” across it in capital letters. Knowing that the photo spoke for itself, Rihanna captioned it simply with a “:)”
Chris Brown and Rihanna Back Together — In The Studio
It looks like things are back on track for RiRi and her R&B beau. After being caught departing the same recording studio, Chris’s rep confirmed to E! News that the two are recording a new song together, marking their fourth collaboration.
A source close to Chris, 23, told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the song had been in the works before being derailed by their recent spat, and that the two set aside their differences to get down to business.
"They've been talking about the song so that isn't new — they were suppose to be doing it months ago but s**t got out of hand between them and they shut it down but now they're back on it."
Chris Keeps An Eye On Rihanna When They’re Not Speaking
As previously reported, Chris kept a close eye on Rihanna while the two weren’t talking, paying close attention to her infamous Instagram account. “He sees everything Rihanna does and posts on Instagram — sometimes before she even posts the s**t," a source close to Chris told us. "Chris thinks Rihanna is sexy as f**k and anytime she's on the cover of something you know that [he] got his eyes on her. He keeps close tabs on her especially when they ain't talkin — like now. But they cool."
Do you think Rihanna’s new pic was to tempt Chris, HollywoodLifers?
If everything goes his way, Greg Garcia will have two comedies on the CBS schedule this fall.
The Eye Network Friday extended pilot orders to the Raising Hope writer/EP’s Super Clyde, a single-camera sitcom about a meek fast food worker who decides to become a super hero. It also ordered his untitled multi-camera pilot about a recently divorced man living with his parents.
The orders were a homecoming of a sort for Garcia; his Yes Dear ran on CBS from 2000 – 2006.
The network also moved forward with The McCarthys, a single-camera comedy about a sports-crazed Boston family written by Brian Gallivan (Are You There, Chelsea?) and executive-produced by Will Gluck (Gross Pointe, Andy Richter Controls the Universe).
The Ordained, penned by journalist Lisa Takeuchi Cullen and exec-produced by Frank Marshall and Larry Shuman, centers on the son of a Kennedy-esque family who leaves the priesthood and becomes a lawyer to prevent his politican sister from being assasinated.
NBC is staying in business with Office boss Greg Daniels, ordering an untitled half-hour comedy pilot from the writer-producer.
It was one of three projects the Peacock network extended pilot orders to on Friday.
The untitled Daniels comedy, penned by Office scribe Robert Padnick, centers on a group of friends in their 20s navigating the trials and tribulations of dating. The pilot focuses on bright eyed and vulnerable Matthew being pushed by his three best friends to get back on the dating horse.
The other two half-hours are the Will Ferrell-Adam McKay-produced Assistance, a fast-moving comedy centered on an idealistic “working girl” assistant who is pulled between her colleague/work husband and her real life fiance, and Donor Party, a New Normal-esque ensemble comedy about an irresponsible man forced to grow up when he discovers he has children resulting from his days as a sperm donor. Actor-writer Alex Schemmer (Community) penned the script with Geyer Kosinski (Magic City) on board as an exec producer.
The Louis Vuitton checkered prints seem to be everywhere on the red carpet, with celebs sporting a slew of pieces from the Spring 2013 collection. While they all wore the pattern in totally different ways, who do you think wore it best? VOTE!
On Oct. 24, KStew sported her long-sleeve romper for a photocall at the Kumamo Shrine in Tokyo, Japan to promote The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. The ensemble looked great and showed off her legs. Kristen has a sort of effortless beauty about her, and it really shows in this outfit. Her waves and smokey eyes looked great with the black and white, and the black pumps are a great match.
Kerry was at a photocall for the Oscar-nominated film, Django Unchained, in Berlin, Germany on Jan. 8. She donned the white-and-ivory calf-length checkered frock. She looked stunning, and she even paired it with a white bow headband, (also by Louis Vuitton), just like the runway models! A pair of white pumps were the perfect finish to this ensemble.
On Jan. 12, Kirsten pulled off yet another checkered LV piece from the Spring 2013 collection at the 2013 Art of Elysium Heaven Gala in California. Hers was once again a bit different from the rest. She wore a long, column dress with a square neckline, open back, and three-quarter length sleeves. Her neutral makeup and soft, blonde waves were an elegant choice!
Jessica also showed off another checkered look at the Warner Bros. and InStyle Golden Globe Awards After Party in LA on Jan. 13. She looked extra classy in her sequin black-and-white checkered dress, and we loved how she paired it with a red lip. Her black pumps and clutch finished off the look. It really showed off her dainty figure. Adorable!
We loved how all of these gals looked! Who looked the best, in your opinion? Comment and VOTE below!
What Kim Says About Her Never Ending Divorce With Kris In The Premiere
“A really expense dream that won’t leave me alone. It’s something that should be over and done with but unfortunately it’s not that easy. I’m annoyed about it but I’ve taken it to a level that I can’t stress about this. The judge says we will be divorced in 2013.”
Kris Is Reportedly Having Fun Delaying The Divorce
We told you that sources tell Us Weekly that Kris is enjoying making Kim squirm in this divorce process: “Kris' friends say he laughs about pushing back depositions because that stalls the whole case.”
But do you really think he’s being vindictive? Sources tell HollywoodLife.com that Kris is really focused on basketball and wants the divorce to be over too.
“Kanye did the deposition for Kim and was proud to do so,” another source tells the magazine. “Kanye is [still] very frustrated.”
Do you think Kim should be talking so openly about the divorce since it’s not finalized?
MTV’s ’Catfish’ creators have launched their own investigation into Manti Te’o's girlfriend hoax. Surprisingly, they’re defending the football player.
After it was revealed that Manti Te’o's late “girlfriend,” Lennay Kekua, who supposedly died of leukemia, never existed, the University of Notre Dame linebacker claimed he was a victim of an elaborate hoax on Jan. 16. The creators of MTV’s Catfish, Nev Schulman and Max Joseph, who are obviously very familiar with such a situation, revealed that they believe the football player is a victim.
“From what I gathered, and from some contact that has been made with me with people who have been involved in this story directly, I get the impression that this is a much larger scheme than he would have thought,” Nev said. “It doesn’t seem to me that he is in on it, although, of course, that is yet to be seen. I think, even though it seems hard to believe and he is a high-profile football player, he is just as vulnerable and susceptible to being Catfished as anyone.”
The photos that had been identified as Lennay were actually those of a 23-year-old from California, Diane O’Meara, who had never met the football player, 21.
“It appears as though someone created Lennay’s profile on Twitter, at the very least, and was engaged in relationships with people apart from Manti,” Nev said.
“That’s definitely something that goes with what we’ve seen. They’re generally not one-off relationships with people who engage in Catfishing,” Max added. “People enjoy talking to more than one person, for various different reasons. When we meet them, they generally confess to doing it for a number of years and having spoken to anywhere from one to hundreds of people.”
Manti Te'o's Statement
Manti issued a statement on Jan. 16. He said:
"This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her. To realize that I was the victim of what was apparently someone's sick joke and constant lies was, and is, painful and humiliating. In retrospect, I obviously should have been much more cautious. If anything good comes of this, I hope it is that others will be far more guarded when they engage with people online than I was."
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is Manti a victim?
1 | How bittersweet was it for Fringe‘s Walter to wax paternal about his new levels of love for Peter just as he gleans that he won’t make it to the end of this story? That said, who else let out an audible squee! when they saw who’d be back in the finale promo?
2 | As fun as it was cleavage to see Once Upon a Time‘s cleavage Belle in flashback warrior cleavage mode, wasn’t her outfit a bit cleavage inappropriate? Cleavage? Also, could Rumplestiltskin and the Charmings been any less taken aback to learn that Hook and Cora had made it to Maine?
4 | Did you notice that Revenge‘s Carrion project was the victim of some creative accounting? Or maybe the jettisoned NolCorp initiative was under such deep cover its projected cost was calculated in its own super secret currency? And does the show really need to play the sound of seagulls in the background every time there’s a scene at the Stowaway?
5 | Has there been an ickier sound effect all season than Adam “missing” the bedpan in the Season 2 premiere of Girls?
6 | Yes, yes, it was “a different time” and all that, but isn’t it flat-out hideous the way everyone on Downton Abbey conspired to break up Lady Edith and Sir Anthony? They let Lady Sybil marry the chauffeur, for Pete’s sake, and yet they’d rather condemn Lady Edith to spinsterhood than allow her to marry the older man she fancies?!
7 | Which unintentional almost TV reunion during the Golden Globes made you more excited: Alias (Victor Garber, Jennifer Garner, Bradley Cooper) or Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell, Amanda Seyfried, Max Greenfield)? And could a certain diet cola manufacturer have possibly run the same commercial any more frequently than they did during the telecast?
8 | What’s the closest possible, homegrown equivalent CBS might come up with for this fall’s Emmy hosts, to at all rival the Globes’ Fey/Poehler combo? Neil Patrick Harris and Kat Dennings?
9 | How many other How I Met Your Mother fans forgot that Kaylee DeFer (Gossip Girl‘s Ivy) played Rachel Bilson’s girlfriend/future partner in Season 6′s "Big Days," and thus were surprised to see her in Monday’s episode?
10 | Does The Carrie Diaries realize that any Scandal fan will have a problem accepting Matt Letscher as kindly Mr. Bradshaw?
11 | How do we get Deception‘s Julian to “disrespect” us with a brand-new car?
16 | For those still doubting NeNe Leakes’ acting chops, did The New Normal this week officially put your skepticism to rest?
17 | Pretty Little Liars‘ Spencer is totally going to hook up with the Academic Decathlon guy, right? (You can’t disguise a hottie with glasses.) Also, how hilarious was this guy’s [see photo] blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shrug/eyeroll at Mona’s “away”?
18 | For those NCIS fans not versed in Hebrew, did your heart skip a beat thinking that Tony and Ziva had done the ol’ “I love you”/”I know” exchange a la Han/Leia?
19 | Is it too much to hope that one day (maybe in Season 13?), American Idol will do away with its annual/horrible “Let’s make fun of Asian guys with thick accents” audition shtick?
20 | On General Hospital, wasn’t Diane’s laughing dismissal of True Blood (on which portrayer Carolyn Hennessy plays Rosalyn) a fun little aside during theLucy-thinks-John-is-vampire-Caleb storyline?
21 |Nashville‘s stranded-at-the-altar plot point not withstanding, wouldn’t Juliette and Sean’s annulment have had more punch if we’d been able to see them try – and fail at – married life for an episode or two? What was up with the intimate way Lamar and daughter Tandy were standing at Teddy’s party? Speaking of which, Lamar totally fixed the election, right? And is it wrong that we’re rooting for Rayna to hook up with her cute producer/guitarist friend?
22 | Is Supernatural finally calling it a day on Amelia?
24 | If you’re American Horror Story‘s bookstore clerk, at the moment that a sinister-looking customer professes to be Bloody Face’s son, don’t you just give him what he wants, pronto?
25 | How much more compelling would Oprah Winfrey’s Lance Armstrong interview have been if he was strapped to a lie detector with real-time results displayed in the corner of the screen?
26 | Why does Grey’s Anatomy insist on pretending like Alex and Jo aren’t going to hook up any second now? Come on! And Dr. Smash Williams’ John McEnroe-esque ping-pong tirades — cute or creepy?
27 | Now that Scandal has fully explained the backstory of the election rigging, are you “OK” with Fitz’s presidency being tainted? And for a guy so dense, how is Senator Davis in charge of any “intelligence” committee?
28 | Which was your favorite Florida 911 phone menu option on 30 Rock? We’re kinda partial to, “If you want to know why JAG wasn’t on this week, Press 3….”

The ‘Teen Mom 2′ star is pregnant again — and showing off her official sonogram! Jenelle revealed the pic, taken on Jan. 10 at six weeks along, meaning she and Courtland conceived their bundle of joy on their wedding night!
Jenelle Evans, 21, is seven weeks pregnant with her second child, and the married mother to 3-year-old Jace isn’t afraid to show off how far along she is — first with a pic of her growing bump, and now with her official sonogram photo!
The photo is dated as being taken on Jan. 10 at six weeks and two days along, which means she got pregnant on exactly Dec. 4 — the day she tied the knot with Courtland!
Jenelle Defends Her Pregnancy Against Haters
On Twitter, Jenelle has been trying desperately to defend her new pregnancy, especially against people who assume Jenelle’s sonogram photo is faked.
“u honestly think my sonogram pics r fake ?! Lmfao wow?” she tweeted on Jan. 17.
“lmfao never ever used photoshop in my LIFE. Idk how to work it at ALL,” added against some naysayers. “yr going to feel really stupid and dumb when u find out I’m not lying.”
People have also accused the pregnant Teen Mom 2 star of taking her prescription medicine while expecting.
“I took myself off my medication now that I’m pregnant…” she responded on Jan. 18 to a follower. And Courtland also told Star magazine that she has been medicine-free since she found out the good news.
Congrats to Jenelle! What do YOU think of the sonogram pic HollyMoms?
Kristen Admits She Has A Crush On A Much Older Man & A Leading Lady!
In this new interview Kristen says: “I used to have a huge thing for Harrison Ford,” Kristen says. “But Amy Adams man, she’s my favorite actress right now. I have a total crush on her too because I got to work with her.”
Normally it wouldn’t be that big of a deal to hear K-Stew joking around like this but it couldn’t come at a worse time with her trial separation from Rob.
Kristen & Rob Are Taking A Break
We told you that a source close to the couple tells HollywoodLife.com that “Rob and Kristen are on a trial separation right now. For Kristen, it's all or nothing. She's ready for marriage, but Rob is over the relationship.”
This is SO upsetting because they’ve been dating since 2008! They were just voted by Forbes as Hollywood’s most romantic couple!
They’re taking a break because Rob is in Australis where he is set to start filming The Rover for the next two months. It’s Guy Pierce’s film about the Apocalyptic future. We just hope Kristen flies to see him anyway and wins his heart over again!
Our says admits: “Rob's been shaky ever since the cheating scandal.”
Anyone could guess that K-Stew feels most comfortable when her hair and makeup is kept as natural as possible. Her makeup artist explains the go-to styles Kristen asks for most — and what she tries to avoid.
Kristen Stewart, 22, is the queen of low maintenance, casual hair and makeup looks. Her effortless style is usually enhanced for red carpet events with only with a pop of red lipstick or sultry smokey eye makeup. Her makeup artist, Jillian Dempsey, even admits to InStyle Magazine that “Kristen will never beg me to do a red lip.” Read on for a breakdown of Kristen’s signature, breezy style!
While bright red lips are a major trend among Hollywood’s hottest starlets — and the style definitely looks great on Kristen — it’s a look that Kristen can do without. Red lipstick amps up an otherwise simple makeup look and delivers glamorous results in a quick and easy way that even Kristen can get behind … if she must. Still, she prefers her natural style. With a natural look like hers, who could blame her?
Celebrity Makeup Artist Jillian Dempsey credits Kristen’s amazing flawless complexion for keeping Kristen looking radiant, even makeup-free. “Her skin is porcelain—a dream,” Jillian raves. “She doesn't like to conceal her freckles, so we do a very sheer application of makeup."
Even when Kristen is all done up for a fancy red carpet appearance, her makeup still does not feel too stuffy or overdone. "She'd be the perfect face for a campaign for second-day makeup," says Jillian. "When hers wears off, she still looks insanely gorgeous." While we would definitely recommend making a habit out of taking off your own makeup before you go to sleep each night, we agree that disheveled and smudgy makeup only enhances Kristen’s rocker-girl vibe.
‘Delena’ fans, prepare to bang your heads against the wall!
Remember when Elena (Nina Dobrev) finally told Damon (Ian Somerhalder) that she loved him on the Jan. 17 episode of The Vampire Diaries? It may have been over the phone — the kind of half-assed move one might expect from Joe Jonas, to be honest — but it was still beautiful and long overdue. That said, “Delena” fans still shouldn’t get their hopes up too high, at least according to executive producer Julie Plec.
“This isn't necessarily the end-all, be-all now that that word ['love'] has been spoken,” Julie tells Entertainment Weekly. ”The doubt is still gonna be there. And it's gonna continue to eat at Damon for the next few episodes.”
So, basically, Elena can say she loves Damon as many times as she wants — but it’ll always be up for debate.
Will Damon & Elena Ever Get Their Happy Ending?
Am I the only one who feels like Damon and Elena are getting totally dumped on this season? Even though we’ve seen them reach several major milestones in their relationship, each one has been tainted, making them impossible to fully enjoy.
Fans went bananas when Damon and Elena had sex for the first time — and rightfully so, as it was crazy hot — but it took less than two minutes for us to question their motives with the introduction of the sire bond.
And now we can’t even fully enjoy Elena’s confession, as we’re being told Elena might only think she loves Damon.
“Elena believes it so fundamentally that in that moment, it's enough for Damon to let himself believe too,” Julie explains. “Just letting himself allow it to be real for one small moment is enough for Damon.”
What do YOU think? Is Elena’s love for Damon real, or are they only fooling themselves? Drop me a comment with your thoughts below!
