Now that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are back together after her cheating scandal, the pair is reportedly looking to put a positive spin on everything. “They are more intense than they’ve ever been, especially Kristen. It’s like they’re desperate for each other all the time,” a source tells Lainey Gossip. “She’s trying to see this as something that brought them closer together.”

At this point, Russell Brand has been talking about his marriage to and divorce from Katy Perry almost as long as they were actually wed. In a candid interview with Australia’s “60 Minutes,” the British comedian talks about why things didn’t work out between him and Perry. “Sometimes it goes well, sometimes it don’t, but if you sort of sense there’s an incompatibility, then in any relationship regardless of the status of the individual, it kind of is best to go separate ways,” he says. “I think if you’re someone who’s really into mountain biking, it would be good to go out with someone else who’s into mountain biking. If you’re really into Eastern mysticism, go out with someone else who is into Eastern mysticism. I think if you’re a devoted tennis professional and you get married to a crystal meth addict, you might have trouble. I’ve been in a lot of trouble.”

Lady Gaga has a lot of friends around the world, but Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro is definitely not one of them. “There’s Gaga. I would call her a slut. This slut is influencing many, many children,” Molinaro said at an anti-drug event earlier this week, criticizing Gaga’s recent actions at a concert in Amsterdam during which she smoked marijuana on stage. “She’s a slut in the pure word, in the pure meaning of the word,” he explained. “A slut is someone that’s immoral or uses improper conduct. So she’s using improper conduct. So she’s a slut. Anyone that would expose people that look up to them and who their idol is, to the use of narcotics, to me is a slut, male or female. It doesn’t matter.”

With three young kids already at home, Jennifer Garner says she’s not planning to have any more children despite husband Ben Affleck’s desire for a bigger family. But then that’s the thing about plans: “I am not pregnant now. I plan to be done,” Garner tells Ellen DeGeneres in an interview. “But my husband is kind of a wonder sperm kind of guy. You never don’t know. You just have to look at him.”

One Direction boy-bander Louis Tomlinson wants the world to know he’s a good boyfriend. The 20-year-old Brit, who has been dating model Eleanor Calder for nearly a year, tells the magazine Fabulous UK that he’s planning to remain faithful. “Sorry girls, I’ll never sleep around,” he says. “I’m a very loyal boyfriend. I’m a bit of a joker. I can be romantic, but not too sickly.”
