Robert Pattinson & Kristen StewartIn what has to be the most scandalous & surprising piece of celebrity couple news since Katie filed for divorce from Tom -- Kristen Stewart was caught red-handed cheating on Robert Pattinson with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. And of course, Twilight fans are going crazy & getting all bent out of shape this morning because they just can't understand how something like this could happen to Hollywood's "it" couple.

Perhaps one of the worst parts of the whole deal isn't solely the fact that Kristen cheated, but that she cheated with a married father of two. Giving into temptation was definitely a major lapse in judgement on both their parts -- but I'm just not sure this incident signals the end of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's relationship. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if it winds up being nothing more than a blip on the radar -- because the kiss she shared with Sanders is being blown out of proportion.

Yes, they locked lips -- but that doesn't exactly constitute a full-blown affair. And yes, they should've known better than to get caught up in the moment, but it's not like they've been sneaking around for months and shacking up in cheap hotels or anything like that. My guess is that they were innocently chatting, and one thing led to another, and the next thing they knew, they were playing tonsil hockey. (It happens.)

And it's also important to note that while Kristen and Robert have been together for quite some time, they're both still young -- and they're not married yet. Don't take what I'm saying the wrong way, because I'm definitely not condoning Kristen's actions. But I truly believe she and Rob can definitely get over this little slip and move on.

They've had such a rock solid relationship ever since they first started dating, and if they're truly as committed as they claim to be, it's going to take a lot more than one kiss to tear them apart and end things for good. Rob has always supported Kristen and obviously adores her -- and he'll prove his devotion even more by forgiving & forgetting her actions. And now that Kristen has issued a formal apology acknowledging her wrongdoing, Rob has even more reason to give her a second chance.

Do you think Robert should break things off with Kristen or forgive her?
