She has retained a dignified silence in the wake of those explosive photos of her husband, Rupert Sanders, cavorting with Kristen Stewart.
But while she isn’t exactly opening up and spilling the beans of her despair, Liberty Ross alludes to a lot in the latest video in Alexander Wang’s “Confessional” series.
The British Vogue model, who found her marriage in crisis after Sanders was pictured in an intimate clinch with Stewart, reveals: “I believe that we’re all on journeys and we are all given lessons at certain times in our life.”
Tellingly, Ross, who has been pictured coming out of couple’s counseling with Sanders, says: ”I don’t like being trapped or feeling that I’m not able to move forward. I do think that this year is kind of the end of some things and the beginnings of something else. And I think that beginnings are always really exciting, and change is very important in life.”
Her “confession” was filmed around her appearance in Wang’s runway show last month and can be viewed here.
Anderson Cooper was said to be shocked and betrayed after his boyfriend Ben Maisani was photographed kissing another man in a park in New York on August 10.
And, with claims that they did not have an open relationship, Cooper was said to nursing his broken heart on vacation with pals such as Kelly Ripa and Andy Cohen.
BUT, this video changes the whole ballgame.
The photos of Maisani openly kissing another man hit the internet on August 12, and according to Life & Style magazine, the couple had flown to Croatia the day before on August 11, and Cooper only learnt of the infidelity once they were on vacation.
This clip was filmed on August 17…. which would have given Cooper five days to send his cheating partner home if he chose to do so.
Which begs the question: Has Cooper forgiven Maisani’s indiscretion or do they, after all, have an open relationship?
It is almost impossible not to love Robert Pattinson. In the wake of having his personal life splashed across headlines around the globe following Kristen Stewart’s cheating scandal, the Twilight hunk not only managed to keep a cool and calm composure when he appeared on ”The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” last night, but he also came across as utterly charming.
In the event that you missed Pattinson’s appearance, you can click here to watch.
She maintains that she wants the world to see how she really is and would be aghast if she was perceived as being artificial.
And just days before she was publicly caught cheating on her boyfriend of three years, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart delved into this subject further.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly at San Diego’s Comic-Con in last month she said never wants to be seen as fake.
“I don’t like people like that,” she explained. “People who are a complete non-person but somehow through the lens seem like they are on and interesting and engaged. … I don’t want anyone leaving and saying, ‘God, that girl is so fake.’ ”
She added: “People tell me to make it easier on myself and to play a character when I go out on carpets and stuff. But you know what? I’d rather be me.”
And that “me” in question is said to be so “ashamed” to show her face following her antics with director Rupert Sanders that she has pulled of her On The Road premiere in London next Thursday.
She has also reportedly dropped out of her latest film Cali.
Question: Is it time for the media to cut the girl some slack? Or is it just deserts for her actions? Let us know your thoughts….
Heartbroken, angry and betrayed, Robert Pattinson has taken refuge away from the glaring eyes of the media at Reese Witherspoon’s vacation house as he tries to come to grips with his girlfriend, Kristen Stewart’s affair with Rupert Sanders.
The 26-year-old reportedly has been staying at his Water For Elephant co-star’s tranquil $7 million ranch in Ojai, California as he attempts to figure out his future with Stewart.
He is said to be a “total mess” and unsure of what to do, claims US Weekly.
The mag goes on to report that Stewart is ”inconsolable” and has been reaching out via texts and phone calls to Pattinson.
“She’s dying to save the relationship. It’s the only thing she cares about,” a Stewart source says.
Funny, she didn’t seem to care that much about the relationship when she was groping Sanders during their July 17 rendezvous.
Last week, Kristen Stewart called her affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders a “momentary indiscretion.”
However, it has emerged over the weekend that the relationship between the pair had been going on for some time (it is something we alluded to in this piece on Friday).
Leopold Ross, the brother of Sanders’ wife Liberty Ross, told the U.K.’s The People that he believes the 22-year-old actress became involved with the 41-year-old director during production of Snow White last year.
“It was from the last half of filming and all through post-production, clear into last week,” Leopold Ross told the publication.
And as for her future with Sanders, Leopold Ross hinted that the Vogue model may be ready to cut ties with her womanizing husband once and for all.
“She made some sacrifices for something she thought was worth it, now she knows, right?” Leopold Ross said. “It might actually make things better in the long run. She wasn’t that happy for a while, but our family is close, she’ll be all right.”
Do you think she should dump him or give him another chance, bearing in mind they have two small children?
There has been many a media pundit lamenting over Kristen Stewart’s surprisingly heartfelt guilty statement of confession that she jeopardized the most important thing in her life– her relationship with Twilight star Robert Pattinson.
The most surprising element is that Stewart is not known for her outpouring of emotions ( though the lover that got her in all this mess, Rupert Sanders, may think differently), so as shocking as her affair was, so was her public admission that she was in love. Coming from a girl who has never in the press acknowledged her relationship with Pattinson, her statement was a statement in itself,
So, what gives? Well, there is of course, a bountiful of theories flying around in the internet sphere, and this one does make a whole lot of sense– if you buy into the fact, that relationships in Hollywood are very often not real by normal standards.
BuzzFoto – We’re not even sure why the magazines keep pushing it, but this couple who are said to be romantically involved, are actually [anything] but. Sure, they’re having fun playing with the press, but it’s mostly because they are told it would be a good marketing strategy for their career. Everyone around them knows however, that they are just good friends, not lovers. One in all the media buzz is actually rumored to swing the other way. Not Chace Crawford.
It’s Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart! Source: BuzzFoto
Boy, these Twilight kids are stealing all the press right now from every other wannabe and faux couple! The Twilight Twitterverse practically had a meltdown over the death of their beloved RobSten.
Kristen Stewart got caught sucking face with her married, twice-her-age Snow White director, Rupert Sanders. This guy was not only her director, but the husband of the actress who played Kristen’s mother in the film, Liberty Ross. Ewww.
The bottom line is that although the couple RobSten was a marketing fabrication, Rob and Kristen had become genuinely good friends. They had an agreement, they shared a house together, and she made him look bad. In private, Pattinson’s not about to put up with this embarrassment. But he’s going to have to in public! It sure will make for an interesting dynamic when they have to promote Twilight: Breaking Up a Marriage later this year. Will they really be able to pull off a realistic faking of a reconciliation of a faux relationship when the really big bucks are at stake? That last sentence just hurt my brain. The point here is that you shouldn’t believe anything this couple tells you about their relationship in the future. This is about money and legal contracts and movie marketing and the destruction of a friendship, and not about the destruction of a real couple. Well, except for the Sanders couple, of course.
What are your thoughts on the Stewart Scandal? Let us know…
Yesterday, when Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders both separately issued groveling apologies to their respective partners, it seemed that they were doing everything they could with the power of the written word (if, indeed, they had any input into them) to make it clear that their affair was a mistake… a BIG mistake!
But did we really buy into their indescribable regret over acting on their attraction for one another at the risk of hurting their loved ones?
We consulted Dr. Reef Karim, The Sex, Drugs & Relationships Doctor and Psychiatrist & Relationship Expert, to get his take on the affair; whether Stewart and Sanders wanted to get caught; and can either couple come out of this mess in one piece.
Here is our interview with him….
Celebzter: Kristin and Rupert are both in relationships, so why would they cheat? Is it a sign that they aren’t happy at home?
Dr. Reef Karim: People cheat for many reasons.
Cheating and affairs in a relationship are usually a symptom of a larger problem with the couple. The most common symptoms are problems with: trust, feeling respected, poor communication, impulsivity and difficulties with conflict resolution. Any of these are a potential problem requiring work and an open dialogue by the couple.
Celebzter: Do you think Kristen and Robert’s relationship can survive?
Dr. Reef Karim: This was a pretty big deal because it was people they know well, as a couple, and it was so public. But, almost any relationship can be salvaged if both parties are willing to really work on the relationship. This one, however, won’t be easy.
Celebzter: When infidelity happens, how can a couple try to make it work?
Dr. Reef Karim: The key to working with infidelity is to understand why it happened. Was it pre-determined or impulsive? Was alcohol or drugs involved? Who was it and how do you know them? Is it an emotional relationship or only physical? What is it about our relationship that may have contributed to this happening? After these and other questions are answered, the next step is open communication and sometimes professional help.
Celebzter: What makes it worse is that Rupert’s wife was in the film and Rupert said that the four I.e robert, Kristen, Rupert and his wife Liberty) all became friends….does that make the sting even worse because the deception is greater?
Dr. Reef Karim: The discovery of an affair is a bad time for anyone. But, if the affair involves a friend and the deception is significant, the betrayal is that much worse. The sting and repair are definitely more complicated because friendships may be dissolved.
Celebzter: Kristin and Robert Pattinson have never come out and confirmed publicly that they are a couple, what does that say about their relationships?
Dr. Reef Karim: The declaration “we are officially a couple” is overrated. Especially in the celebrity community. You can have a perfectly healthy relationship without making it public. But, if one member of the couple hides the relationship from others for ulterior motives (like I’m leaving my options open to date other people), then you have a problem.
Celebzter: But yesterday, she confirmed that she loved him and realizes that she put their relationship in jeopardy…..is it too little too late?
Dr. Reef Karim: They definitely “need to talk” to gain an understanding of why this happened, what’s the problem with the relationship, can the trust be repaired and what to do in the future. The fact that the betrayal was so public doesn’t help.
Celebzter: And what to make of Rupert’s statement?
Dr. Reef Karim: Clearly, if he was distraught and valued his marriage he wouldn’t have cheated in the first place?
When people cheat, they usually aren’t thinking, they’re acting on impulse (unless it’s a long-term affair). Being with an attractive person, on set, for an extended period of time requires self-restraint. And, per reports, that didn’t seem to happen in this situation.
Celebzter: They were caught making out in public, it’s almost like they wanted to get caught, right? Who would do that otherwise?
Dr. Reef Karim: Primal impulses make you do crazy things like make out in public when one celebrity is married and the other is in a relationship. In other words, the passion (and maybe alcohol?) makes you do things that you wouldn’t normally do.
Celebzter: What should Rob do? What should Rupert’s wife do? Should they forgive the other half? Or walk out?
Dr. Reef Karim: Everyone in this situation needs to focus on their own family and relationship and work on repairing the trust by openly communicating and possibly getting some professional help with the relationship. There’s a lot of betrayal here that needs to be worked out.
One woman is married with kids. The other in a relationship with an equally famous star. But after today, Kirsten Stewart and Liberty Ross will forever be etched in internet history after it emerged that Stewart was having an affair with Ross’ husband, Rupert Sanders.
