kristen stewartUh-oh! Looks like there's trouble in Twilight paradise AGAIN! The latest dip on the Kristen Stewart-Robert Pattinson Rumor Roller Coaster: Apparently, Kristen has been goin' behind Rob's back and texting up a storm with none other than Rupert Sanders. Ahhhh! Crazy, right? Just when you thought these two were ready to reunite for the Breaking Dawn--Part 2 premiere and then call it happily ever after, she has to go and CHEAT again!

But wait, hmm. Maybe it's not exaaaaactly cheating?

If there is any truth to this story, maybe it's just the product of Kristen's insecurities. The way she talks and acts, especially when the spotlight is cast on her, she comes off like the most insecure actress in Hollywood. Yes, she's only 22, so I'll give her the youngin' break, the break of not quite knowing herself yet. Nonetheless, texting a guy who is totally into her -- and who isn't her boyfriend -- could quite possibly be a stab at snagging a quick ego boost.

Hey, just about all of us are guilty of it at one time or another! It's no great mystery that sometimes we talk to men who are attracted to us (not necessarily who we are attracted to) in order to feel better about ourselves. I've had friends admit that yeah, even though they're with "Max," they totally flirted with "Greg" on Facebook just because they were lovin' the bonus attention. The 20 minutes of feeling like someone else -- other than the guy they already know is in love with them -- thinks they're irresistable.

And really, what's the harm in it? Usually, as long as the relationship really remains 100 percent platonic, these campaigns to bolster self-esteem are completely innocent. There's only trouble if you start to cross the line by doing or saying something you'd prefer your S.O. never found out. Ever.

Therein lies the issue with Kristen Stewart. She already supposedly crossed that line once. So she doesn't get the free pass to flirt on behalf of her ego anymore. So let's not be surprised if this -- or something like it -- ends up being scripted as Rob's final straw!

Admit it: Do you ever talk to guys other than your S.O. for the attention/ego boost?
