    Kristen Stewart is gorging on ice cream and not showering?  She is the one who cheated.  If she wants Patterson back, eating ice cream and not showering is not a good way to do it.  Then again, the cheating did not help either.

     To be honest, I was tempted to just leave that story out. The whole thing is paparazzi fodder. Unfortunately, there was a shortage of celebrity nonsense, as there usually is on Mondays.

    That story is worth posting only as an example of how insipid, shallow, and self absorbed Hollywood really is.  It is the insignificance, vapidness, and self indulgent vanity of the story that makes it resonate.
