A morning mix of entertainment headlines...
First up: Us Weekly’s “ Robert Pattinson is hiding out at Reese Witherspoon’s ranch ,”a story that shoots down previous stories about U-Haul trucks at the Pattinson/Stewart abode and sightings of RPatz in England. No, the truth is this (allegedly): He has been staying at the $7 million Ojai, Calif., estate of Elle Woods. The fact that they are friends who starred together in “Water for Elephants” makes this slightly less random. (Us)
And then there’s this Radar Online piece, which has since been picked up by People: “ Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart fighting over custody of dog,”which provides sad details about how much both actors are hoping to hang on to their adopted pup. “She wants joint custody — and it could get a little messy,” an “insider” tells the Web site. (Radar; People)
In the slightly less ridiculous category, there’s this dueling set of articles: Entertainment Tonight says that in the wake of the Robsten Crisis, Pattinson has canceled upcoming plans to promote his movie “Cosmopolis.” But according to E!, Pattinson’s rep says that’s not true, stating that “no confirmed engagements have been canceled.” I just don’t know what to believe anymore. About anything. (Entertainment Tonight; E! Online)
Tom Cruise took Suri Cruise to Disney World Tuesday, and she was dressed like Ariel from “The Little Mermaid.” Look, we all have opinions about the TomKat situation but ... but ... look at her little tiara. (People)
Katherine Jackson is going to Indiana later this month for a celebration of what would have been Michael Jackson’s 54th birthday. Okay, we all know this information now. So come Aug. 29, hopefully no one will say the woman is missing. (Associated Press)
In case you missed this news earlier this week, Snoop Dogg has changed his name to Snoop Lion. Fine. But can we still say fo shizzle? No? No one says that anymore? (Style Blog)
Vince Vaughn is producing a CBS reboot of “The Brady Bunch” in which Bobby Brady is divorced and remarried with, yes, a sizeable brood of kids. I’ll only watch if his wife’s name is Cindy, and they both get lost in the Grand Canyon. (Hollywood Reporter)
