The presidential election is just a few short months away. The price of corn has gone up which means meat, poultry and dairy prices are sure to follow. Gas is on the rise yet again. Crime has gripped many parts of the country in the sweltering summer months.
What has really grabbed the attention of this nation is not one of the many woes we as a country face. No, we are consumed with the non-stop coverage of the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal.
For those of you who haven’t turned on a television or had wi-fi or avoided all magazines at the check-out lines in the supermarket in the last month, let me bring you up to speed:
Kristen Stewart was caught cheating on Robert Pattinson, her Twilight co-star boyfriend of three years. Stewart was busted red-handed by the paparazzi canoodling with her much older Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders during a steamy rendezvous in Los Angeles last month. After news of the affair broke, on the front cover of US Weekly no less, a media frenzy has ensued with one gripping headline after another:
Robert Pattinson Moves Out!
Kristen Stewart Wears Dirty T-Shirt!
Twi-Hard Fans Everywhere Are Crushed!
Kristen Stewart Apologizes for Cheating!
What amazes me about this story is not the fact that Stewart cheated on her boyfriend of three years. Pattinson is not the first person to nurse a broken heart and he will certainly not be the last; 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. I’m not amazed by the fact that after working closely on the set of Snow White and the Huntsman, Stewart and Sanders had an affair (it happens; hi, Brad. Hi, Angelina).
