Ashley Greene‘s condo burned down yesterday. Though she, her brother, her boyfriend, and one of her dogs made it out safely, her other dog died.
:( I don’t ever use emoticons but I don’t even know how to express my sadness for her in words. Also sad is that the fire sent three people to the hospital. No word on their exact condition yet, but they are believed to be doing okay.
Oh God, and here’s the worst part: this all started because of a candle in the living room. A simple candle that accidentally somehow fell on the couch and grew into an uncontrollable fire. I often light candles in in my apartment, and I’m hesitant to even run to the bathroom while leaving them lit and unattended in the living room. Yes, it’s rare that these things happen. But it did, and Ms. Greene is apparently feeling guilty and devastated.
I guess this serves as a good wake-up call. There are accidents happen that we can prevent and we can’t take anything for granted.

Ashley Greene‘s apartment in West Hollywood went up in flames today. And sadly…one of her dogs didn’t make it. :( Oh God, I can’t even. Ms. Greene, her boyfriend, her brother, and one other dog are all okay.
No one knows yet what started the fire. Daily Mail reports that it began on the couch. TMZ offers the same info, adding,
12:16 PM PT A firefighter tells us … Ashley, her boyfriend and her brother were out late last night and were sleeping when the fire broke out on the living room sofa. They ran out of the apartment, and then realized the dogs were still there. The 2 men tried to get back in to rescue them but couldn’t. We’re told Ashley wanted to keep the dog that died, so firefighters wrapped it in a sheet and gave it either to Ashley or one of the 2 guys.
Oh God :( again.
There are also conflicting reports as to whether two or three people separate people were treated for injury and/or burns. Eonline! reports three.
Ms. Greene lives on the 3rd floor of the old school Granville Towers. My heart is aching for her right now.
And other things, too, but mostly the taint thing, because that was the most amusing part of the interview. Here’s Ashley discussing ‘Twilight’ and Kristen Stewart and everything else you just have to hear about to make it a perfect Monday evening.
Ashley on the funniest part of ‘Breaking Dawn: Part 2′:
“We secretly coordinated a dance-off during a scene! We were all in on it, but [director] Bill Condon didn’t know. [All the vampires] were supposed to charge at each other and destroy each other, but instead we just started dancing! Everyone did it—the Cullen clan and probably 20 vampire extras! It was such an amazing way to end it all.”
Wow. Yeah, not amazing at all. I’m thinking something more along the lines of “insufferably cheesy,” but hey. What do I know? I’m a lowly blogger, and not a titty-baring actress.
Ashley on her ex-boyfriends:
“I certainly have [been in love]. I can still love an ex as a person, regardless if the breakup was bad. I would never wish anything negative on them. It takes more energy to hate them than to wish them well.”
So she can love an ex as a person? Because guys, there’s this one ex I have that I definitely do not love as a person, because the whole point of ending the relationship was to rectify the fact that I somehow ended up with a person who was NOT a good person. And why would I want to love someone as a person if they sucked at it hard?
Anyway, moving on—Ashley on that taint thing:
“Hopefully it won’t taint [the movie] and people will still be able to enjoy it. I think a lot of people see us as our characters. I really want them to still be able to do that.”
Well. I guess we know that Ashley’s not nearly as friendly with Kristen outside of the ‘Twilight’ franchise as she is in it. But hey. We got to “hear” Ashley say “taint.” Isn’t that probably the most amusing thing she’s done anyway?
