Monday gossip roundup: Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are going to be awkward at the MTV Movie Awards

In the wake of Kristen Stewart‘s apology for cheating on Robert Pattinson, the “Twilight” co-stars are reportedly not speaking to each other, according to People magazine. Sources say both parties have left the L.A. home they share and are living elsewhere separately. “I’m not sure they’ll be able to recover from this,” a source tells the magazine, adding that Pattinson “is heartbroken and angry.” They’ll have to face each other soon enough, though, as they’re set to be co-presenters at MTV’s Video Music Awards on Sept. 6, just as promotional duties begin in earnest for the final “Twilight” film, out in November.  

Sophia Bush was spotted grabbing coffee with Topher Grace in West Hollywood last week, but the newly single actress wants to make it clear that the two are not dating, she tells Us Weekly. “Topher has been one of my dearest friends for six years,” says Bush, who’s starring in “Partners,” a new TV comedy this fall. “We have coffee all the time and he is actually a great sounding board for me with sort of how to be prepared with all things sitcom.” Bush recently split from her boyfriend of six years — and “One Tree Hill” co-star — Austin Nichols. She’d previously been married to another of the show’s stars, Chad Michael Murray.

Comedians Daniel Tosh and Dane Cook have drawn ire this month for jokes about rape and the recent Colorado movie theater shooting, respectively. But one person they didn’t offend? Russell Brand. “I don’t know about what Dane Cook or Daniel Tosh said, but I know that they are comedians, and I know they’re nice human beings, so I don’t imagine that they had any intention other than to elicit laughter from their fellow human beings, as is their job,” Brand told reporters at the TCA panel for “Brand X,” his cable series. “I don’t think we should create a state where people are afraid to talk. That could have much worse consequences.”

For Kristen Bell, teaming up again with fiancé Dax Shepard for their new movie, “Hit and Run,” was something of a no-brainer. “We realized we’re severely co-dependent,” Bell tells Us Weekly. “It’s not just like you’re caught in the house with your significant other for six weeks and you’re both doing different things and feel like you’re in each other’s way. We actually had the same goal and we really, really, really wanted the best for the script Dax had written. Because we had the same mutual goal, it felt shared.” So how did she get the part in Shepard’s film, exactly? “On this project, I was sleeping with the director, the writer and the lead actor, so I spread myself real thin,” she jokes.

Once a hard-partying rock-star, Aerosmith frontman and former “American Idol” judge Steven Tyler is living a bit differently these days thanks to two tiny dogs. “[I have] a Yorkie and a Morkie,” Tyler tells Time magazine. “One is a teacup I put in my pocket. And the other one I put in a sling over my shoulder, and I walk around and it’s the cutest f—ing thing on the planet.” And with Tyler’s new sober lifestyle, he finds himself turning to the pups for conversation. “I miss going out to a club, yakking it up. So I talk to my dogs,” he admits.
