This is the end of the innocence.

As you know, Indra is all about letting the good times roll, but alas there moments, when for the good of her sex, she must confess, not all ladies are high rollers.

Case in point, Kristen Stewart. Oh, the photos we’ve seen.  For shame. For shame, Rupert Sanders, that is. 

Any woman with a rudimentary sense of vision will tell you, these are the photos of a deeply unhappy young woman who is not enjoying in any way being touched by this man. And good god, she’s a talented actress too. If she is so repulsed by this chap she can’t even fake an attraction, how truly awful she  must have found his attentions. 

Although some source states Ms Stewart was “totally into him,” I would suspect, from her expressions, Ms Stewart felt forced into a sexual relationship with this man twice her age because he was her boss and a powerful Industry type who could ruin her career if she didn’t “cooperate”. 

She certainly does not appear to be a young woman in charge of herself, choosing to enjoy a fling with an older more experienced man because she’s grown a bit bored of  her faithful young swain (intellectually or otherwise). That would be more Indra’s style.

Still, I could have respected that if it were a choice freely made by a young woman. (I could not have endured her rude treatment of Mr Pattinson however. If you are done with a man, tell him so. If you are not,  remain faithful unless you have both agreed  a committed but open relationship.)

However, returning to the situation at hand, in my humble opinion, I would suspect the victimized Ms Stewart probably hoped the Sanders “fling,” which she herself appears disgusted by, would mercifully end with the conclusion of the movie’s press junket and never, ever  come to light.

Sadly such dangerous liaisons always do to come to light. Even if the press had not revealed her dilemma, it would have ultimately marred her relationship with Mr Pattinson. She’s practically a victim of rape. Her long-time boyfriend would have noticed. 

And for those not paying close attention, factor in the 20-year-age difference (when Ms Stewart was 12, Mr Sanders was 32 — think about it)  and the title of the movie he directed her on Snow White and the Huntsman? Goodness! I think we all know what to call that seriously twisted situation.

I do hope that Rob can forgive Kristen, but it will probably be the end of the innocence, for a great number of people.

My deepest sympathies, too, are extended to Liberty Ross and her lovely children — whom I would suggest take full custody of and move to Paris immediately, especially since she has a pretty little girl.

Splendid and Idle

“If in looking at the lives of princes, courtiers, men of rank and fashion, we must perforce depict them as idle, profligate, and criminal, we must make allowances for the rich men’s failings, and recollect that we too, [would] very likely [be] indolent and voluptuous had we no motive for work, a mortal’s natural taste for pleasure, and the daily temptation of a large income.  What could a great peer with a . . . great fortune do but be splendid and idle?”  Thackeray

All I can add to that is, Thank God!
