Any of You Twihards Looking to Buy A Bed?

Because trust me, you want this one.

Remember when Catherine Hardwicke, the director of Twilight, told the story about how Robert Pattinson got cast because she made him make out with 17-year-old Kristen Stewart on her bed? Yeah, it’s that bed:

Catherine said she still has the bed Rob and K-Stew first kissed on when they were rehearsing scenes at her house for the iconic first film in the series. And Catherine said she might put the bed up for auction to help Step Up Women’s Network if there was enough demand from fans — and we’re sure it would generate plenty of interest amongst the Twihards!

Also, the charity is a great cause, offering children in high-crime areas the chance to graduate high school and go off to college!

Charity is great, of course, and I’m sure this could raise a lot of money for a good cause, but this is still the creepiest thing ever.  Ok, maybe it’s not THE creepiest (Twilight has inspired a lot of creepiness), but it’s pretty damn close.

Would you be interested in buying this bed?  Or what about the bed from The Exorcist?  Maybe the bed from Misery? Basically I’d just like to know if there’s a scenario in which you can buy a bed as a piece of memorabilia and have it not be the creepiest piece of furniture in your home.

Look, Everybody, It’s The First Official Trailer for Breaking Dawn!!!

Last week we brought you Breaking Dawn‘s first official poster, and just a few days ago you got to see the wedding teaser. But today’s a brand new day, and even though you were originally going to have to wait until tonight’s MTV Movie Awards to see this trailer, some kind, precious soul with connections decided that you shouldn’t have to wait that long. Congratulations, Twihards.  Your time is nigh.

OMG the Breaking Dawn Wedding Scene Teaser is Here!

Are you guys going to watch the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday? Well, now you are, I guess, right?

I don’t know. To me, it seems like all of the craziness and hubbub surrounding the Twilight franchise has died down a bunch, and I’m starting to honestly wonder if people even care about it anymore. Kristen Stewart is a big famous movie star now, and Robert Pattinson is like, a sex symbol or whatever and just wants to settle down now, so have they – haha wait for it – “eclipsed” the movies themselves, or are people still actually into this stuff?

Poll: Which ‘Entertainment Weekly’ Cover Are the Twihards Dying to Get Their Hands On?

Ugh, I’m not sure I’m even prepared for another Twilight movie to be released. We’ve been talking about this movie for months (hell, it seems like years) and I don’t think the trailers are even running in theaters yet. But I’m not totally selfish. I know that there are plenty of Twihards out there that absolutely can’t wait to see R.Patz and K.Stew‘s tame sex scene and melt down in the theater when it’s finally all over after all of these years. I’ll give you your moment, and apparently, so will Entertainment Weekly.

The magazine is releasing their May 6th issue with two different covers that celebrate the franchise, one with Rob and Kristen and the other with Taylor Lautner. If I had to put my money on which will sell better, my guess would be the former, but I’ve learned that it’s silly to underestimate the power of The Lautner.

Let me know which cover you plan on purchasing in the poll and, as always, the comments are here for any and all thoughts and feelings you might like to share. I’m sure you’ve got a lot of ‘em.

Which 'Breaking Dawn' EW cover are you going to snatch up?

Did You Guys Hear That Paul McDonald from American Idol and Rosalie from Twilight Are Dating?

I guess this story is aimed specifically for y’all teenyboppers. That’s the only demographic that strongly cares about both American Idol and Twilight, right?  Well, you guys are welcome.

So Paul McDonald?  Impossibly adorable.  He got eliminated this week, which was a tragic moment in my household, but it’s ok, because he’s got other things to do, like work on a new album and bang Nikki Reed, the lady who plays beautiful, bitchy Rosalie in the Twilight movies.  Here’s Paul’s characteristically charming statement about it:

“Yeah, well me and Nikki Reed are dating. It’s officially true. She’s super cool, man, she’s super smart, really cool girl. I’m happy about it. We’ve been hanging out, here and there, you know we’re both pretty busy, but it’s been fun so far.”

And here’s another statement where Paul describes how happy Nikki is that he got eliminated:

“She is actually pumped,” he said. “She said, ‘Dude, you finally get to do your thing and be yourself and be the artist you are.’ She is happy about the whole situation. She has been nothing but cool to me.”

I’m really excited about this couple, can you tell?  It hits on two things that I’m ashamed to be so in love with, which is a really special feeling.  And you guys, I’ve got to confess – I’ve been falling hard for Paul McDonald for the past couple days.  I mean, he’s no Casey Abrams, but he’s wonderful.  I just got his band’s album (The Grand Magnolias, check it out if you’re hipster enough), and it’s crazy good.  If you don’t pull any other glee out of this story, at least check out The Grand Magnolias and let them touch your heart, ok?

One For All the Twihards: Bella Swan’s Breaking Dawn Wedding Dress Revealed

It’s finally here: one of the Twilight-themed moments you’ve been waiting for all year – the big reveal of Bella Swan’s wedding dress. The rendering was released earlier this week, and I’ll be damned if that chick in the dress doesn’t look EXACTLY what you’d expect an anime Kristen Stewart to look like, but I guess that was part of the whole idea, huh?

I don’t really get the hardons over Twilight, though there are probably people out there who don’t really get the whole Star Wars thing, either, but this wedding dress of Bella’s? It’s probably the excitement-equivalent of Princess Leia’s crazy risque bikini that people are STILL all nuts over.

Gotta love those fans and their fanatical ways, right? Speak out, Twilight fans – are you loving this?

Robert Pattinson Still Hasn’t Mastered The Role of Edward Cullen

Robert Pattinson has been a part of the Twilight franchise for like, almost four years now and he admits that he still can’t put in the contact lenses he wears to play Edward Cullen. Robert recently said in an interview that he still needs the makeup artists to put in his contacts for him. He told Entertainment Weekly, “Everyone else has figured out how to do it, and then there’s two people holding me down because I can’t do it myself… It’s so embarrassing for me, after so many years, it’s still a process every single morning. I actually want to get some kind of plastic explosive… I want to kill them.”

I gotta admit that I’ve always had a similar problem with contacts (I’m practically blind, did you guys know that?) but like, suck it up dude.
