The Jig is Up!

I'm just browsing cyberspace and came across this how "My boyfriend is English" thing which is trending on Twitter and all over freakin' Tumblr.  

You know what I think?  I think it's kinda shitty.  It seems, upon my first impression, that they tricked it out of Kristen.  I mean we all know....it's not a huge secret, but still.  Rob and Kristen have worked really hard to keep their relationship as private as possible.  When you read it, "the blood drains into her boots" - that's when Kristen knew, the jig was up.  

I guess you can only be careful what you say for so long.  Something is going to slip.  I just feel bad for them.

Just my opinion. Wondered what you all thought.


  1. I agree that they probably tricked her a bit and that sucks but it is hard to continue a "lie" no matter what it is for that long....I feel like it was only a matter of time before someone slipped. Better mow than 2 years ago though....I don't know if it'll be as big of news for any length of time when its been pretty obvious for a while now...WFE premier after pictures anyone? I have a feeling it'll blow over relatively quickly in the grand scheme of things and now maybe some of the speculation articles will go away. I feel bad too, but it might be better in the long run....and it doesn't mean that they are going to go out searching for publicity for their relationship all of a sudden...they can still stay low key like they have been.

  2. The one thing I respect about Robsten is that although they are tight lipped about their relationship, they still seem like they want to remain honest. I praise her for being honest in this situation.
    Every reporter is going to try and trick them into saying too much or wording things in a certain way that gets them "caught". That is part of the reporter's job to an extent, by the way. I have a friend of a friend who works for the AP and she HAS to ask those kinds of questions.

    There is a part of me that likes hearing KStew refer to him as her boyfriend though. Makes me happy for him, idky.

    They'll always be newsworthy, unfortunately for them. They are handling it like pros though. How they've managed to keep so much under wraps is a credit to their intelligence and strong will. I mean, there is basically a bounty on their heads.

    My word count is up. Man, we're wordy bitches today. ;)

  3. From this little piece it's hard to see if Kristen was tricked at all. I don't see Kristen getting tricked easily. I just think she's getting comfortable "out of the closet" with her and Rob. She knows, we know. Kristen gives what she wants and nothing more, it's ok with me.

  4. We are wordy bitches tonight...I was just going to say after my little novel there that I also needed kiTT's max word count ;-)

    I think you're very right, Meg. Although it's fairly obvious to pretty much everyone on the planet that they're together, they don't flaunt it and I love that about them. They have never fully denied it either - they just avoid like pros which is awesome for them. Being honest (and I think K is super honest with her second statement of "I never would have said that...") but not to the point of using it for any sort of publicity. I think that just shows how much more real their relationship probably is than a lot of celebrity couples can say. I mean Selena and Justin? They are all about the "my boyfriend" this and "my girlfriend" that and I feel like it's more to further their careers than because they actually like dating each other...who knows. And now I'm speculation on Bieber's love life...god, I spend too much time in 8th grade...At any rate - I've said it before, I don't absolutely love KStew - can't put my finger on it but I just never have. However, I am glad that they are happy and that they make each other happy and as long as that remains true, I will be happy for him and them and their relationship. :) I just want our boy to love life...

  5. We know... they know we know. They pretend that we don't know that they know that we know. Ya know? Just kidding. I feel really badly that they are trying to keep their relationship private and interviewers and whatnot try to play word games with them to force them into confessing their relationship. At this point she should pretend that conversation didn't happen and move on. It's going to blow up when they finally show up coupley to an event and then people will get over it and stop trying to play these games. Although then it will snowball into something more. I guess all they can do is kinda what Kellan does; go out in the same clothes, be boring, do normal stuff. The paps and others will get bored eventually.

  6. Got one word for Kristen.


  7. Whether or not she was 'tricked' into saying this, it's really none of our business.

    I've said it before, I'm not a Nonsten, or a Robsten. It's like someone coming into my work and asking me questions about my marriage. There's only so many people I'm going to tell things to. They are followed and bothered so much. Why can't they have something that is theirs?

    Who cares if her 'boyfriend is british." Let her have that. That's what pisses me off about some of these interviews. If they want to talk about their private lives let them say it. Don't 'trick' them into saying anything. I thought I once read, in maybe VF, where Rob said he won't talk about it because he doesn't want to cheapen it. Am I right? Q? You on that? LOL

    I don't want you ladies to think I'm bitching about anything you've said. The rest of the world is now all twitterpated that 'she outed them." C'mon. This isn't about international safety. It's not defcon5. Let them live their lives. Don't we have better things to worry about? Like feeding and clothing our children? keeping our homes? Finding Jobs?

    Ooooohhhhh...Bitchy Naughty today!!! LMAO You guys get me right?

  8. *shakes fist* Absolutely not Naughty! Get on the Robsten bandwagon or GTFO! LOL

    LOVE YOU!!!!

  9. Don't wave that fist at me! LOL

    Why does there even have to be a "robsten" or a "nonsten"?


    *jumps off soapbox, shakin' head*

    I love you too Kass.

  10. I'm kinda with Naughty on this one. I like Rob. I like Kristen. I like them together or apart. It's their life, and whether they are "boyfriend/girlfriend" or not is really none of my business. I think it adds a little excitement to the fandom to know that it's possibly a real life Edward/Bella thing, but when reporters cheapen it by tricking them into giving something up...that's when I kinda stop giving a shit. Let them live their lives!!

    But don't make me stop drooling over Rob. Cause I WON'T. *crosses arms & sticks tongue out*

    teehee. Happy Humpday girls.

  11. Stop drooling over Rob? Now that's just blasphemous! No one could stop us Jen!

    And if they try...well...I don't know what I'd do.

    **waves fist in air**



You've given me no choice...but to comment.
