New Twilight Movie Apparently Sucks [Sad Face]

[Insert a Darth Vader style "Noooo!"] I've been waiting for the new Twilight movie for months now. Sadly, I must admit, I got Twilighted last Christmas when I was sitting around gluttonous and bored back home in California. So we fired up the DVD player and I caught up on all the Bella/Edward action in about 6 hours flat. No, they're not the greatest movies of all time, but they have entertainment value and you gotta admit, it's a pretty damn good love story. While Kristen Stewart tends to be as wooden and emotionless as a no. 2 pencil, the storyline is so good, the movie-goer can grin and bear it...usually.

Travel Essentials: What You Need for Hitting the Road
With the holiday season approaching travel plans are being made to visit our loved ones. Perhaps, you're going on a well-deserved vacation. As women, I think we usually tend to "over-pack" and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't guilty of this at least a few (ahem) - ok, maybe more than a few times during my traveling life. I decided to set out to find the most useful and allowable items that one can bring with them on a trip (it's hard to keep-up, with all of the constantly changing rules and regulations).

2011 MTV Twilight, Ahem, Movie Awards

As usual, the Twilight franchise sweeps through the 2011 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday 06/05/11. Five awards to be exact.

Who would want to miss an event that boasts stars such as Shia LaBeouf, Selena Gomez, Ashton Kutcher, etc? Apparently, anyone that has actually seen the Awards these past few years. Face it, the once-groundbreaking annual show has been a nonstop snooze fest for a long time now. The Movie Awards were not incredibly terrible this year; however, the predictability of the winners, the lack of musical performances (this is a music channel, right?), and overall efforts to "shock” the audience were lackluster.

Eclipse and The Last Airbender Lead the Razzies

The nominations for the 31st Annual Razzie Awards were announced on Sunday and the Olympic champions are The Twilight saga: Eclipse and M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender.

Both of the movies lead the pack with nine nods each. Twilight's nominations are including Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel and...Worst Actor for Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.

No way, Rob a bad actor? Really? You don't say! Such a bad actor according to the Razzies that he also received mention for other work, in Remember Me and Valentine's Day, respectively.

Ice Cream You Scream We All Scream For Jake

Guess we didn't get the memo that Jake Gyllenhaal isn't a single man anymore.

On Monday, Swift and Gyllenhaal were seen eating ice cream at a shop in Santa Barbara, California. This was right after they supposedly spent the whole weekend together. The ice cream parlor workers said that the pair seemed happy, but not lovey dovey. Good. The girls would have wanted to pull Taylor's hair out!

Swift has been romantically linked to Taylor Lautner and Joe Jonas. What a surprise she went for Jake-- Bieber should have been the new man!

Move Aside Pop Tween, I Want Me Some Werewolf!

Kim Kardashian has ditched the hair and moved on to Team Jacob. The Kardashian reality star has moved on from crushing on the 16-year- young old Justin Bieber to 18-year-old Taylor Lautner. Who would you rather crush on?

ECLIPSE
The U.S. Premiere of 'Eclipse'- Contain Yourselves!

O-M-G...The premiere of 'Eclipse' has finally happened! That means Rob Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, AND wolfboy aka Taylor Lautner were together- in the same atmosphere- breathing the same air as us common folk. That means you and I were like, one degree of separation from them, right?

Okay, I can't keep this up anymore. You can infer from the pictures (or just from hearing their names) how this went down.

Kristen showed up wearing a dress she didn't want to wear (she feels most comfortable in "jeans and tennis shoes"), sporting her usual grim, sullen face (any smile you see in the pictures was forced). She obviously looked uncomfortable, as she always does whenever there's sun or moonlight. And of course, she made sure to have her trademark, I'm-a-celebrity-but-I-don't-care-look-at-me stature. Man, she's obnoxious. We don't understand you Kristen, nor we do care to try to.

KRISTEN STEWART
Taylor Lautner Is A Romantic

Twilight hunk, Taylor Lautner opened up to Access Hollywood in a recent interview. Lautner talked about just about everything we want to know from kissing Kristen Stewart to what he likes in a girl. According to the actor, it was not that big of a deal to kiss Kristen: "Jacob's been waiting for that moment for a while. It wasn't awkward. It was different. Like, Kristen and I would finish and pull away and she'd look at me and there'd be a moment of silence and she'd say, 'Taylor, we just kissed.' And I'd be like, 'Yeah, we did.' That was pretty much it. I found it a lot harder to pretend I hated Rob Pattinson. He and I are good friends, and he's too nice. He needs to roughen up a little bit so I can actually hate him. We ruined plenty of takes just because we couldn't keep a straight face when we are yelling and screaming at each other."

Twilight Alert!

Team Jacob will be happy to know that Taylor Lautner isn’t totally out of the running to return to the second Twilight installment as beloved Jacob Black. The vampire flick hit America in November and swept teenage girls (and let’s be honest, some of us 20-somethings) off their feet. Shortly after, it was rumored that Lautner, 16, could be replaced in the sequel, New Moon, by an older, more mature Michael Copon, 26.

It’s reported that everyone wants Lautner back, but because his character is completely different in New Moon – being a foot taller and much broader – he may not be able to play the same role. Lautner is aware of the physical difference in his character and he's working out hard to gain 19 lbs for the role. He told MTV last month he has 10 more to go. Main characters Kristin Stewart and Robert Pattinson are set to return as Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. New Moon will be released Nov. 20, 2009, and Twilight mania will once again send millions of girls into a tizzy.
