The Word: Rob Pattinson a married man?

Robert Pattinson

In honor of Halloween, let’s check in with Vampire-in-Chief Robert Pattinson, shall we? (Tune in tomorrow for an update on Director of Zombie Special Projects Lindsay Lohan — we just couldn’t handle her today.)

While promoting “Breaking Dawn: Part 1” at a press conference over the weekend, Pattinson speculated that he and co-star/girlfriend Kristen Stewart may already be married. “The wedding scene’s funny because we used a real priest,” said the actor, according to UsMagazine.com. “So technically we are already married because he did all the things you would do in a normal ceremony. So we don’t have a civil union in law, but I guess in the church we are actually married.”

We suspect the church wouldn’t agree, but then again, it’s not really our go-to marriage dictionary these days. If someone united Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt in holy-hell matrimony, no doubt they’d sign off on this one. 

Halloween weekend with Drew

Cops were called to Drew Barrymore’s place in Hollywood Hills over the weekend because her Halloween party got too loud, according to TMZ’s sources. Absolutely nothing of note — they showed up around midnight and she promised to quiet down. It might, however, be the only time she surfaces in gossip columns until 2013, and we wanted to put it out there: We love Drew Barrymore, and want in on her rowdy Halloween parties.

Cops called to Nicki’s

In less adorable calling-the-cops news, police were summoned to Nicki Minaj’s place this weekend when the singer got in an argument with a housekeeper, according to TMZ. Minaj had previously fired a maid who worked at her home, then grew upset when the woman returned to work Friday. When the maid said she wouldn’t be “treated like an animal,” Minaj reportedly flipped out, shouting, “I’ll show you how to treat someone like an animal. Get the f— out of my house.”

Best part here? It wasn’t the same employee she had fired. This, Nicki, is exactly what the term “epic fail” was invented for.
