Kristen Stewart Is Handling Split From Robert Pattinson in Exactly the Right Way

kstewIt's been a rough year for Kristen Stewart. Branded a "Trampire" after a cheating scandal that left boyfriend Robert Pattinson heartbroken, she couldn't salvage their once hot and heavy relationship no matter how hard she tried. She was recently dumped a few months after their shaky reconciliation. While most of us would be cowering under the covers full of regret, Kristen has chosen to boldly move past her mistakes in the best possible way -- KStew is partying hard.

On June 16, she was spotted hanging out on top of the bar at the Coyote Ugly Saloon in Memphis, Tennessee. Please note, that was on top of the bar, not leaning on it. According to a source, she walked in with friends at about 1 a.m., drank a beer, took a shot of Jack Daniels, and played pool. She apparently even won a few games. Other night owls described her as "very nice" and "cool", and she introduced herself by saying, "Oh hi, I'm Kristen." It's as though the once awkward, shy Twilight star has transformed into a whimsical, fun party girl.

Just a week before that, she was spotted having a blast at a Hooters in Amarillo, Texas. This may all seem uncharacteristic of the actress, but I totally understand the change. In fact, this is the best thing she can do right after a messy split. Though fans may blame her for the downfall of that famed romance with RPattz, it has been just as hard on her as on him. She carries the lion's share of the regret and guilt of it and understandably so.

Breakups are hard, no matter who you are. The best thing she can do is to do things that can help take her mind off of everything. She is hitting the town with friends and seems to be having a blast. She's young, rich, beautiful. She should be having the time of her life -- with or without Rob.

Do you think Kristen has moved on?
