I would love to read a behind-the-scenes account of the pr strategies and manipulations behind the Robert Pattinson  - Kristen Stewart scandale and breakup.  Who advised Stewart to get ahead of the damage by issuing her profoundly weird public apology? And the flood of information from all those sources supposedly close to Pattinson who said he was heartbroken? Wild guesses and logic at work? Or strategic leaks? The old adage “Those who know don’t talk, and those who talk don’t know” has been updated with a new option: friends who leak exactly the message the main players want out there.

Kristen Stewart's Apology: Damage Control or Performance Art?

Call me a cynic, but I’ve always wondered whether Kristen Stewart’s romance with Robert Pattinson was real or conveniently staged for maximum ‘Twilight’ publicity. Now that she has publicly apologized for cheating on him – after Us Weekly published incriminating photos of her kissing another man – I’m more skeptical than ever. Only a romance staged for the red carpet and press junkets could result in her bizarrely personal three-sentence apology, which ends: “This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry." This might be damage control; it’s weird enough to play as performance art. What it doesn’t even approach is reality.
