Sometimes the tabloids get it right! Kristen Stewart apologized yesterday for cheating on Robert Pattinson with her "Snow White" director Rupert Sanders. She said, "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry." A source says Kristen definitely wants to stay with Rob and make things right with him. Kristen did not apologize to Rupert's wife Liberty Ross, or their two children. But Rupert issued his own apology, saying, "I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together." It was "Us Weekly" that broke the story which happened on July 17th in a few discreet areas around L.A. And not surprisingly, there was a photographer on their trail. The photographer followed Kristen from her house to a parking lot where Rupert got into Kristen's car and they proceeded to get it on. The photographer says, "Kristen was sitting up with her back against the driver's-side window, and this guy was kissing her entire body." But once they got the feeling they were being watched, they left in Kristen's car and went to a trail near the Hollywood sign. They parked and started making out again. Then they got out of the car and started groping and making out some more. The photographer says, "He was all over her. It seemed like they couldn't get enough." But every time they heard a voice or saw someone coming, they would split up and walk in opposite directions. Then they got back in the car and made out for another 20 minutes before she dropped Rupert off three blocks from his house. They kissed one more time, and he walked home. One thing we can't really say is if there was any actual sex between Kristen and Rupert. We also don't know if this was the only time they've been romantic. We haven't heard anything directly from Rob yet, but a source claims he's absolutely devastated, but doesn't want to say anything in public until he figures out what he's going to do.
You had to know this was coming, Kristen Stewart is getting death threats on Twitter for breaking Robert Pattinson's heart. Here are a few examples:
"Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson with her director! WTF?! *loads and cocks gun* Imma kill that b****."

"So Kristen Stewart finally cheated on Robert Pattinson. B**** is about to die. No one cheats on Robert Pattinson."

T.J. Jackson, has been appointed temporary guardian of Michael Jackson's kids Paris, Prince and Blanket. At an emergency hearing yesterday, the judge said, "This is not a power play by T.J. Jackson. This is based on the allegation that Katherine Jackson is being prevented from acting as guardian." No one is blaming Katherine for this. They think she's a victim herself. A source says, "It is not about taking guardianship away from Katherine. T.J. didn't step in to remove her. He stepped in because she is not there. He is extremely tight with his grandmother." But Katherine is not okay with this. Yesterday, Katherine told ABC News, "I am devastated that while I've been away, my grandchildren have been taken away from me, and I'm coming home." She added that the court ruling that gave T.J. temporary custody was based on a bunch of lies.Meanwhile, she also refuted claims that her kids Jermaine, Randy, Janet, and Rebbie abducted her and forced her into the Arizona resort where she's been for over a week. Brothers Marlon, Tito and Jackie Jackson are reportedly opposed to what their siblings are doing. They think it's an attempt to gain control of Michael's estate and they want no part of it. Sister LaToya is sitting the whole thing out. Katherine said, "There are rumors going around about me that I have been kidnapped. I am here today to let everybody know that I am good and fine. My children would never do anything to me like that." As for why she had no contact with the kids for more than a week, she said, "One reason I didn't call is I just gave up my phone and I didn't want to have any phone calls while I was here." Katherine was scheduled to return home yesterday. In her statement, Katherine mentioned that she had finally spoken to Prince and Paris.
The cast of "Modern Family" has been negotiating for a significant pay raise for the past few months and things are not going well. Now, they're playing hardball. Yesterday, five of the adult stars Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara filed a lawsuit, asking to have their contracts voided. Those contracts have them locked in for four more seasons, but they want those scrapped in favor of more lucrative deals. Production on Season Four was supposed to begin yesterday, but the cast didn't show up, so it was canceled. Ed O'Neill has a higher pay scale than the other adult stars because he was the biggest "name" coming into the show. But in an act of solidarity, he's joined them in their holdout. Of course, he wants more money, too. The fact that the cast is acting together puts a lot of pressure on ABC and the production company, because without all of them, there is no show. The cast of "Friends" used this tactic successfully back in the '90s to score huge deals. Neither ABC nor the cast has commented on the negotiations. If you're interested in the specifics, here's the breakdown: The six main cast members started out making between $20,000 and $60,000 per episode, with Ed on the higher end. They were given a complimentary raise this past season that bumped their salaries up to between $60,000 and $105,000 per episode. According to the "Hollywood Reporter", the cast rejected the studio's latest offer, which was $200,000 per episode for Seasons Four and Five, $225,000 for Season Six, and escalating raises up to $325,000 per episode through Season Nine. Again, this is for the five adult cast members not named Ed O'Neill. His negotiations have been separate, but he isn't getting what he wants either. Obviously, that seems like a lot, but the show generates a ton of coin. "Modern Family" brought in $164 million in ad revenue for ABC last season, and repeats of the show were licensed to the USA Network for $1.5 million per episode. There have been 72 episodes so far so that would put the syndication deal at around $110 million already. For comparison, if the main cast got an average of $250,000 per episode, that would be $6 million apiece per season and $36 million for all six.
