Wednesday gossip roundup: Kate Middleton refuses to miss Christmas dinner

gossip

Kristen Stewart knows she’s upset more than a few fans over the course of her “Twilight” tenure — and especially since her summer cheating scandal. “I apologize to everyone for making them so angry. It was not my intention,” the actress tells Newsweek. “It’s not a terrible thing if you’re either loved or hated. But honestly, I don’t care because it doesn’t keep me from doing my s—.” And as for the hugely successful vampire franchise coming to an end? “The only relief when it comes to ‘Twilight’ is that the story is done,” she admits.

Despite her recent pregnancy-related hospitalization, Kate Middleton is vowing to put on a brave face for the Royal Family’s Christmas dinner, according to Radar Online. “Kate doesn’t want to disappoint the Queen, nor does she want to skip on her duties,” a source says. “She feels she is obliged to appear at the annual Christmas dinner and doesn’t want to let anyone down.” Her husband, though, is offering an out. “William has his concerns though that she won’t be up to it, and told Kate she shouldn’t worry if she feels too sick to attend and that no one will judge her negatively,” the source adds. “But Kate isn’t having it and is determined to be at the dinner, smiling as always.”

Angelina Jolie is set to return to the director’s chair, choosing to adapt Laura Hillenbrand’s WWII survival story, “Unbroken,” as her second film, according to E! News. The story follows Louis Zamperini, an air force pilot who survived a crash and spent most of the war in a Japanese prison camp. “I read Laura Hillenbrand’s brilliant book and I was so moved by Louis Zamperini’s heroic story, I immediately began to fight for the opportunity to make this film,” Jolie says. Her directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” focused on the Bosnian war.

Gwen Stefani uses some interesting analogies when discussing reaching her 10th anniversary with husband Gavin Rossdale. “It’s fun to get to this point. Because you learn so much about somebody,” she tells Vogue. “It’s like these wars that go on and then you kind of get through to the other side, and it’s like, ‘Wow.’” The No Doubt singer also says she enjoys the compromise that comes from being parents. “Having kids takes the whole relationship to another place. It is the ultimate collaboration,” she says. “Both of us have such strong opinions about how it should be, and it’s really fun to do it together.”

Bubbles the Chimp, the furry longtime companion of Michael Jackson, has reportedly been dumped by the late singer’s family, according to the National Enquirer. The chimp has been relocated to the Center for Great Apes in Wauchula, Fla., though Jackson’s children have yet to come visit. “Bubbles was not provided for in Michael Jackson’s will,” a spokeswoman for the Center says. “They Jackson family has turned their back on Bubbles.”
