Last night, the Internet was set ablaze when Us Weekly reported that Twilight star Kristen Stewart cheated on her smokin' hot boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, with her Snow White and the Huntsmen director, Rupert Sanders. Her married Snow White and the Huntsmen director, Rupert Sanders.
Die-hard fans of the Twilight saga, and folks who really couldn't care less about the franchise, were left wide-eyed and slack-jawed (at least in my mind they were), because whether you're a Twi-hard or not, this is major gossip news. Muy scandaloso. Kristen and Robert were one of Hollywood's darling couples, mainly because their on-screen romance was basically more important than their off-screen one.
So. What is this real-life drama going to mean for the Twilight finale? Hint: Nothin' good!
If Kristen's alleged philandering ways turn out to be factual (which is kind of seeming like it's going to be the case, what with photos and all), it basically takes the fourth wall, and doesn't just break it, but mockingly blows it up to smithereens. It's hard to suspend our disbelief -- even at a vampire movie -- when the relationship of "real life" Edward and Bella is falling apart. Part of what made us love these two on-screen so much is their real-life, seemingly adorable love affair. How can we not feel a little animosity towards "Bella" for doing "Edward" so dirty?

I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens, how this all pans out, etc. And in the meantime, we can take solace in the silver-lining: Robert Pattinson might be on the market. Hey now!
If Kristen and Rob break up, will it affect your love of Twilight?
