Wednesday gossip roundup: Kristen Stewart won’t confirm Robert Pattinson rumors

Looking for official confirmation that “Twilight” stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have really reconciled in the wake of her cheating scandal? Well, the woman herself isn’t being much help in that department. When asked during an interview on the “Today” show if she and Pattinson are back together, she says, “Funny you mention that. I’m going to just let people watch whatever little movie they think our lives are. Keep ‘em guessing, I always say.”

Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox managed to keep the birth of their son a secret for more than a month — and he says all the credit goes to Reese Witherspoon, as the world was too busy cooing over her newborn to notice, he tells Ryan Seacrest during an interview. “We got really lucky,” he says. “And I’ve been wanting to send Reese Witherspoon flowers for, like, a month and a half. She actually gave birth, I think, the day before us in Santa Monica.”

Seeing as how he’s starred in all five “Twilight” films with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, it was only a matter of time before Taylor Lautner was asked to weigh in on Stewart’s cheating scandal that broke this summer. And an interviewer for Cosmopolitan magazine did that, though Lautner chooses a very diplomatic route for his response. “To be honest, I’ve never been involved in any of those situations, so I don’t know [if trust can be regained],” he says, “It would be just a guess and a shot in the dark, and I don’t want to give that if I haven’t even been there myself.” He does say, however, that he thinks it’s possible for a relationship to survive a cheating scandal, assuming they’ve been together long enough: “If it was a long, serious relationship, I think it’s quite easy to rekindle,” he says. “I guess it depends on what damage has been done.”

Looks like those Kristen Bell pregnancy rumors were true. First, the actress’ rep confirmed the news to Us Weekly. Then, father-to-be Dax Shepard got the chance to gush about the news during a visit to the “Tonight” show with Jay Leno. “It’s true,” Shepard said of the news. “My mom is probably the most excited. It’s an unhealthy thing — I don’t recommend it — but she has a Google alert on my name, so if I do anything, she finds out about it, basically.”

“Modern Family” actress Ariel Winter is looking to divorce her parents, according to the National Enquirer. What’s causing the rift between the 14-year-old actress and father and mother Glenn and Crystal Workman? Winter is reportedly furious over their demands that she stop seeing her 17-year-old boyfriend, actor Cameron Palatas. “Glenn and Crystal think Cameron is too old for their daughter, but Ariel wants a full adult romance with him — love, sex, everything. And she’ll stop at nothing to get it,” a source says. “Ariel’s so angry and determined to live her own life she’s sought out an attorney to get free of her mom and dad.” The Workmans, for their part, have apparently been blindsided by the move. “Her parents are devastated and they don’t know what to do,” the source adds.
