The Word: Robert Pattinson’s deleted scene

Robert Pattinson

Our least favorite thing about vampires? The now seemingly required graphic undead sex scenes.
(Runner-up goes to CGI werewolves, but those, thankfully, are another story. For now. Put down your creepy pen, Stephenie!)

Robert Pattinson seems to share our discomfort, and was hoping to lighten up the honeymoon scene in the upcoming “Breaking Dawn.” “I wanted to have it as a line so much: ‘I bit through all the pillows. Every. Single. One.’ And then he’d start crying,” the actor tells Entertainment Weekly. “By the way, that’s what he should be ashamed of in the morning. All those beautiful pillows! Egyptian cotton! I ruined this bed!”

Nice rewrites, Rob. If you need some edits, the Metro conference room — complete with very cheap, totally replaceable, don’t-even-worry-about-them Ikea chairs — is always open.

Have a crazy bride-to-be in your life?

For perspective, we present this quote from Kim Kardashian: 

“Last night I took the red-eye at midnight, landed at eight in the morning in New York, ran to Vera Wang for a dress fitting at 10 a.m., then left at noon on another flight out,” she tells E! Online. “I spent like 11 hours on a plane just to spend three hours in New York.”

Paula Abdul, we owe you

We love leaked lists of diva demands. Mostly, because it makes us feel like the low-maintenance, gracious people we so clearly aren’t, but it’s also nice to know that should gossip columnists start raking in the big bucks, it’s still cool to demand sorted Skittles.

Paula Abdul’s assistants, according to’s source, are required to: Tape all of her conversations, monitor TiVo for any mentions of her and remind her that she is a “warrior, survivor and gift.” A gift indeed.
