Here we go again ... More sources are speaking to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's rumored reunion. While Robsten fans are sitting around getting their hopes up that the two could be back on in a big way -- and perhaps, even for good this time?! -- other speculation points to the contrary. This relationship redux could very well boil down to the two actors hooking up a la Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.
In other words, this suspiciously "just laid," self-satisfied smirk on Kristen's face could be the result of getting it on with Rob. But fun times in bed don't mean the two are headed for a full-on emotional reconciliation. In fact, sources close to the former couple claim that they're flat-out not interested in back together long-term. Womp womp!
Or perhaps it's that Kristen is interested in getting back together, but "Rob is very, VERY hesitant to go back there," reports CelebrityDirtyLaundry.com. Sounds about right. So I guess they figure that in the meantime, why not have some friends with benefits fun?
Sigh. I'll tell ya why not! It's asking for disastrous heartbreak. Almost every attempt at a "no strings, strictly platonic" hookup arrangement agreement is DOOMED -- especially if one person is wanting more than that out of the relationship! (As it sounds is the case here.) I mean, haven't these people seen movies starring Justin Timberlake opposite Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher vs. Natalie Portman ...?!
Oh, wait, despite the mess of issues associated with no strings hooking up, those characters end up together. But we know that's fiction! And Rob and Kristen should know better than anyone that what you see on-screen doesn't usually translate off. Let's just hope that no matter what their relationship status, they're both being as honest as possible ... That's the only way I can see them making it out of this current wonky arrangement without a helluva lotta heartache.
Do you think believe KStew and RPattz are just hooking up? Do you think no-strings-attached hookup arrangements work?
