I Need Your Help, People

So, I was in line (or on line for you Philly folks) at the Acme yesterday, when I came across the cover story of Ok magazine about Rob and Kristen’s Twillight Wedding.

While the line was long and I did have enough time to read the cover, it wasn’t long enough for me pick up the magazine and read the story -- I was in the 20 items or less lane. And I couldn’t buy the magazine because I am on a very strict budget which only allows for one trash magazine a month and I usually reserve that money for picking up Cosmo -- a girl can never have enough "drive your man wild in bed tonight" tips.

Do any of you read Ok? Perhaps one of you was unfortunate enough to be caught in a really long wait at the super market and got through the whole story? From the cover I gather that the magazine has behind the scenes pictures of the filming of the wedding that happens in book four of the series. Which is fine. But the cover itself seemed to suggest that these were photos or an inside look at this couple’s actual upcoming wedding. And if that is the case -- what the what? They are really getting married in an almost identical fashion to the characters they play in the movies?

Because if that is the case, I smell another letter writing campaign coming. This time to my U.S. Representatives. Surely, this sort of thing is banned by the Defense of Marriage Act, and if not, it should be.

Oh God. I hope not. The only thing (when it comes to Twilight) that keeps me from tearing out my hair is the fact that it's all just fiction.

Luckily, I haven't been to the supermarket lately.

I don't read O.K. but I do read Midweek Madness on There is no Rob/Kristin wedding.
See for yourself here

You see, the Twi-hards would give ANYTHING to see Robert and Kristin hook up, and OMG! Twilight is TOTALLY FOR REALS!

So savvy magazine editors keep spinning Twilight "real life romance" stories. They are 99% crap.

Meredith, Thank you so much. I was finally able to get a decent night's sleep after reading your comment. I don't like telling anyone what is right or wrong -- especially when it comes to matters of the heart. But I would have had to say something to those two.
