As I predicted, Pattinson, made no irresponsible reference to his breakup with Kristen Stewart other than to respond to Jon Stewart’s remark “that for young people going through a breakup sometimes feels like the end of the world, Pattinson answered, ‘It is.’ The audience then went “Awwwwwww;” reported people.com.
It took me a couple of weeks to think through the Kristen Stewart/Rupert Sanders scandal. I wasn’t looking for headlines with a situation as volatile as it was turning out to be. But after the dust had somewhat settled, I was eager to publish my point of view. Thus, this week, I wrote an article titled “Kristen Stewart Has Suffered Enough.” In it, I reported that Stewart was not the typical street wise 22-year-old with a lot of experience dating. Taylor Swift, who happens to be the same age as Stewart has more experience with men. My argument posited the notion that Stewart’s inexperience, general shyness, and depression could be a recipe for disaster. In addition, I made a call for Rob Pattinson to do the responsible thing and communicate his next steps, so that Stewart could begin her healing process. Uncertainty can wreck havoc on a person’s personal and public fortune. Pattinson is in a position to remove her uncertainty and consequently promote progress. My article was not interested in the sordid affair, on the contrary, it was intended to point out that as long as we linger on her mistakes no real progress could be made. We all in some ways have a responsibility in this scandalous mess. Out of respect, I suggested we move on, or limit our conversation to support her while she struggles through her ordeal. That said, a number of Stewart’s fans were sympathetic to her dilemma and responded responsibly to my article. I have included some of them here, I have also included comments that were not so kind. If you want to read the entire article you can find it at the following link:http://guardianlv.com/2012/08/kristen-stewart-has-suffered-enough/#comments
Kristen made that apology to Rob in “panicked” mode. She did not think it through. She was running scared and I do not believe was thinking about her star status at all. She was thinking of Rob…She does love him and he her. I just hope he gives her a 2nd chance and work on the forgiveness part during their time. They are both beautiful people. Only he knows what is in his heart. I just hope he listens to other people suggestions but does NOT let it interfere with how he feels. Rob has to live with this decision the rest of his life. People do make mistakes and who know what mistake he will make down the line…NO ONE is perfect. My prayers are with both…
Look people have to forgive, Rob has to forgive, if not for her sake but for his own. He has to forgive either to repair his relationship with her or to be free of any resentment, mistrust, barrier that he might bring to any future relationship. I will tell you that while, he was wronged, that if he in anyway bath mouths or says anything at this time about their relationship, he will come down a notch for me. He has to take the high road,which believe he will.

My perception of Ms. Stewart’s state from comments on her Twitter account is that she realizes the relationship is likely over. She seems to have recovered somewhat from her emotionally intense sorrow, regrets.

Let’s clear one thing up … Kristen does not have a Twitter account.
August 12, 2012 at 4:28 pm (Edit)
I hope you believe that.
August 12, 2012 at 5:50 pm (Edit)
Kristen herself many many times has said that she does not have a Twitter account. I am not disputing whether or not they have permanently broken up, but I have personally heard her during many interviews stating that she does not have a Twitter account

Well written it is nice that some media sites can write an article about being concerned about Kristen’s well being and not bashing her. Major leading ladies like Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie have done worst they actually sole their partners from their wife/girlfriend and didn’t much scrutiny as what Kristen is getting. Hopefully she recovers from this fiasco.

This article was very to the point, its too bad none of these people who are blaming Kristin on here, have ever made a mistake in there life or are still to young to understand people are not perfect.. its in our mistakes is where we learn. Cheating is only a sign that there are problems in a marriage. The third party is only a symptom, the root of the problem lies in the couples relationship. This couple is young, I hope Mr. Pattinson can see the remorse Kristin may have in her heart and how she has learned at a very YOUND age what effects her surrounding relationships. I hope he can forgive her and renew his relationship with her if thats what he wants. Forgiveness is a sign of maturity.

Loyalty is also a sign of maturity. If she wasnt happy in that relationship, if she wanted more, she should ve said that. She is too young and she doesnt deserve so much hate, But again, what about Rob? who is going to take care of his soul?
August 11, 2012 at 9:33 pm (Edit)
How do you know she is remorseful? All we have is the PR statement made very quickly in hopes that all the Twilight fans wouldn’t hate her for cheating on Rob. The only reason she released that was to save her career. It obviously didn’t work and people saw right through it. If she wasn’t happy she should been a decent human being and broke up with him or tried to work out their problems like an adult. Instead she snuck behind his back to cheat, and I’m sure would still be doing it if she hadn’t been caught. I’m sick of hearing about poor Kristen. She’s so young. She was seduced. Please. She knew the difference the difference between right and wrong and chose to have an affair with a married man. I feel sorry for the innocent victims in all this: Rob and Liberty.

Forgiveness also doesn’t mean Robert has to take her back. With time, he’ll probably be able to forgive her.
August 11, 2012 at 6:33 pm (Edit)
Yes, she has suffered enough. Rob will take care of her because he is a gentleman and he loves her.But lets not put this presure on his shoulders. He is the victim here. Whos gonna take care of him?Who knows how hurt he is?
August 11, 2012 at 6:10 pm (Edit)
hey why don’t you call her and maybe she is taking you for another indiscretion..she has a nice a$$
August 11, 2012 at 6:07 pm (Edit)
Looking back on the way she treated Pattinson with all her swearing, belching and dissing him, looking at her behaviour in front of the cameras , I don’t know why anybody would forget that easily what a butch she is. Without Pattinson, who showered her with nothing else than undying love and devotion, she will turn into some Lohan or self loathing “poor me” woman. Rob gave her respect and security. She has thrown this away, like its nothing. She took a very good person for granted and showed her real face, and its ugly

Fran, I’m sorry but were you a fly on the wall in their relationship? Do you know with certainty the context behind every photograph and (probably) stupidly manipulated media stories that gossip mags choose to spin and then publish? You don’t know that Rob treated her the way you insist he did and you don’t know she did what you say she did, other than, of course, the indisputable cheating evidence. They never even admitted to a relationship! It’s probably been all publicity for the franchise. A convenient screen to real life romance that was fodder to all you twihards. It’s time for everyone to move on and grow up now.

And btw, I’m not disputing what you said about how crap what she did was. It was inexcusable, there’s never an excuse for cheating. And you’re right, she showed her true colours and they are ugly. But we don’t know what goes on behind closed doors and I’m sick of media spin on everything, doing what they can to manipulate photographs and “evidence” to get a “scoop” no other publication has. Just don’t read everything you hear. And look beyond what you read and what is presented to you.
August 11, 2012 at 5:16 pm (Edit)
I don’t really understand why you think that Robert owes her anything. She was the one who desided to hook up with a married man with two small children. She’s the one the ruined a marriage with no thought to Liberty Ross or Rob. So why do you think he should help her out of her misery and depression? Why does she deserve that after what she did? She sure as hell wasn’t thinking about what’s best for him when she made out with her director in her car. Sorry, but I really don’t think you can put this on Rob.
August 11, 2012 at 4:10 pm (Edit)
You are way too invested in a relationship that isn’t yours. Just stop.
August 11, 2012 at 4:09 pm (Edit)
He shouldn’t take her back. If she knew him at all then she should have known that cheating was a deal breaker. He doesn’t need to inform her decisions. It is good that she dropped out of Cali. It gives the impression that she’s trying to work on getting the relationship back on track.

you might want to have someone proof read your article before you post. ex: ” sooner than letter”. But overall you make some interesting points without bashing Kristen, which not many people are doing.
Who actually is perfect?Reply
August 11, 2012 at 2:50 pm (Edit)
Finally! Thank you so much for the sensible, humane, enlightened, ethical, and dignified approach to this very sad situation.
August 12, 2012 at 10:48 pm (Edit)
I agree completely. Why isn’t this article up front and center? Because the “perfect” people judging Kristen don’t want an article like this. But I say…Bravo to you Dimarkco Chandler.
I thank you all for your overwhelmingly positive responses to my article.
