Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson move back in together
Today’s flight through the pop-culture skies finds an apparently happy landing, a not-so-happy exit, “50 Shades” rumors, other things, and the mystery music video.
BACK IN THE SADDLE: Of a reconciliation, per Us Weekly, “Now that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are done making up, they're back to shacking up! "They are living together and have reconciled," an insider tells Us Weekly in the new issue, on stands Friday. But they haven't exactly returned to the way they were before July, when Us broke the news that the Twilight actress, 22, had cheated with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, 41.” http://bit.ly/NR6NIw
DWTS UPDATE: The tribe has spoken, per the Los Angeles Times, “Maybe she’ll get a Pitbull glow stick as consolation. Alas, someone had to have the distinct displeasure of being the first to be kicked out of the glitterverse in this “Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars” season. And while she was a fan favorite, the first couple to unceremoniously get the boot at the end of a very long, two-hour results show were Pamela Anderson and Tristan MacManus.” http://lat.ms/QxiBiZ
LITTLE STEVEN: Van Zandt’s pitch worked, per the New York Times, “The actor, producer and longtime guitarist with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band has persuaded the Rascals to do a set of shows that will not only be the first concerts the quartet has performed together since the early ’70s, but will also tell the group’s history through archival footage, narration and dramatic film segments.” http://nyti.ms/SlQOTw
BACK FOR MORE: The gang’s all here, per People, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo ... again! Alana Thompson and her "cra-azy" family – dad Sugar Bear, mom June and big sisters Pumpkin, Chickadee and Chubbs – will be back for even more Southern-fried shenanigans. TLC has ordered additional episodes of the hit series, the network tells PEOPLE exclusively.” http://bit.ly/S7mKXM
SHARING HIS THOUGHTS: Strong ones, at that, per The Hollywood Reporter, “Three-time Oscar winning director Oliver Stone turned political during his visit to Rome to promote his latest film project, Savages, calling the U.S.’s war on drugs “a failure” and offering what appeared to be a lukewarm endorsement of President Barack Obama.” http://bit.ly/UIQj88
SALUTE: And then sing, per Entertainment Weekly, “You’ve think you’ve seen every type of singing competition series? Not yet you haven’t! ABC has acquired a military singing reality show where current and former soldiers will show off their performance skills.” http://bit.ly/RYIvi2
INSPIRED: By hardship, per E!, “Movies aren't just a career for Steven Spielberg, they've long been an "escape" from a learning disability he didn't even realize he had: dyslexia. For the first time, the great director is talking about his battles with dyslexia, how it instilled terror in him during his elementary school days thanks to constant teasing from his classmates, and how he and his band of fellow misfits even became his inspiration for writing The Goonies.” http://eonli.ne/QxwIVD
ALL GROWN UP: And mulling about a script, per The Independent, “Emma Watson has revealed she would consider a role in the movie version of steamy "mummy porn" book Fifty Shades Of Grey. The Harry Potter star's name has been floated as a possible candidate to play Anastasia Steele in the raunchy tale of bondage and domination.” http://ind.pn/TBRZAR
CAMEO: He does this, per indieWIRE, “Wrapping earlier this summer, after a reported 130 day shoot, Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" went through quite a few cast changes as it rolled in front of cameras. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kevin Costner, Sacha Baron Cohen, Kurt Russell and Anthony LaPaglia all exited the picture at various points, and while replacements were found, it seems Tarantino had the brainstorm to put himself in the movie too.” http://bit.ly/TBSP0G
STOP THE PRESSES: Just the facts, per Celebuzz!, “Love continues to be in the air for the cast of Jersey Shore, as Jenni “JWoww” Farley confirmed Wednesday that she is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Roger Mathews.” http://bit.ly/QUPxzL
MADONNA: Clarifies black-Muslim-in-the-White-House comment during D.C. concert, per Reuters, “(She) issued a statement on Tuesday through her spokeswoman saying her reference to Obama's religion was facetious. "I was being ironic on stage. Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim - though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were? "The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don't care what religion Obama is - nor should anyone else in America," she said.” http://reut.rs/UuSnMr
AND FINALLY: Today’s mystery music video. http://bit.ly/VJ7fsU
