And now, after addressing questions in Celebuzz’s #AskJane video feature, HLN anchor Jane Velez-Mitchell says the 22-year-old Twilight star has an uphill battle to shake her “home wrecker” status.
What did Velez-Mitchell say about the scandal which has rocked Hollywood?
“There are two reasons fans are upset,” she says. “They feel protective of Robert Pattinson, and they are also upset because they feel that Kristin is essentially a home wrecker.”
Stewart was busted after photos surfaced of her getting cozy with the married father of two, forcing the two of them to make apologetic public statements.
In her mea culpa, Stewart directly apologized to Pattinson, her on- and off-screen beau. “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,” she said.
But Velez-Mitchell is convinced Pattinson’s superstar status and huge fan base will make it even harder for Stewart to bounce back.
Says Velez-Mitchell: “Next time around, try to make sure that person ain’t married.”
