I hope you’ve been following along with our weekend via Twitter or Facebook. Let’s just say we got to meet THIS girl:
Oh yes. That’s Nutty Madam in the flesh (video to come!)
Just a quick run-down of today’s events. The red carpet starts at 4:30 pm PST, which means my heels go on around 2pm PST and I’ll start complaining about my feet hurting at 2:10 pm. The sun goes down at 4:52 pm tomorrow which means I’ll be complaining about being cold around 4:48 pm. We’ll be yelling at Mike Welch to stop cock-blocking Rob from the carpet around 7:25 pm PST.
To follow along with the shenanigans, please please please follow us on Twitter: @letter2twilight. That’s where we’ll be the most up-to-date! Facebook will be the close second for LTT craziness.
And you can WATCH the premiere (and hopefully catch a glimpse of us and our EPIC SURPRISE) starting at 4:30 pm PST via yahoo movies! (if the stream doesn’t show below go to: http://movies.yahoo.com/twilight)
We cannot wait to share stories & tales from a #RIPTwilight weekend to remember in the days to come! Wish you were all here to join in a big LTT group hug
UC & Moon
PS: Check back EARLY tomorrow am (12 ET/9 PST tonight) for a preview of Moon’s review of Breaking Dawn Part 2 (with NO spoilers!)
Breaking Dawn Part 2: Have you heard of it? Well it’s out soon & there’s gonna be a premiere. People camp out for these things. I know, shocking right? Here is what we know:
The process to attend this year’s Fan Camp will happen in 4 phases:
Phase 1: Fan Camp Registration
Phase 2: Fan Camp Drawing
Phase 3: Fan Camp Ticket Notification
Phase 4: Fan Camp Check-in
Also no drugs are allowed aka no fun* (ALL the camping details in their glory are available below, after the jump)
But I’m more concerned with what we don’t know:
I know which guy from the trinity gets to sleep in HER sleeping bag
1. What time will Rob be by with breakfast hot pockets in the morning?
2. How will the contest work to win a night with Rob & Taylor in your tent? Rumor has it it might be a lottery, but they’re still considering a silent auction for charity. You don’t need retirement, right? The kids don’t need Christmas presents for the next 10 years do they ? There’s nothing better to spend your life’s savings on than this opportunity for a Jacob-Edward threesome. And by threesome I mean a twosome between you & Rob while Taylor watches karate chop vidoes on YouTube.
3. Who will be headlining the concert for the fans? I hear it’s between some band no one yet knows but everyone will know later this month when the soundtrack is announced, a 100 Monkeys reunion show, Anna Kendrick and her friends from Pitch Perfect or Muse.
These two weirdos think they’re SO funny
4. Also unknown is which unemployed desperately in need of money Twilight actor with be MCing: so it could be any of the new vamps or one of the wolves. Or Bree Tanner.* Poor kid
6. What will the dress code be? Can you wear merch from Breaking Dan Part 1? Will you be shunned if your night shirt is from Water for Elephants? Will there be prizes for fans who actually found Abduction t-shirts to wear? What if you spent all your money getting to LA and bidding on the date in the tent that you can’t afford to buy new merch and so you have to wear your old Hot Topic digs from the original Twilight premiere– will that be allowed? With that terrible security guy who thinks he’s the $h*t kick you out? Will someone with shiny new Nordstorm Breaking Dawn Part 2 merch get your spot in line?
We have a few e-mails into Summit asking these very important questions & will let you know as soon as we know something.
So.. are you gonna be there? Please say yes! We want to hang!
*Member when Bree Tanner was a thing? Have you read it yet?
*Don’t do drugs.

While Moon was busy holding the golden mic & being felt up by a D-lister Red Carpet guest (yes that happened. No, she won’t let me tell you who in fear that one day he’ll be an A-lister and somehow desirable), I was in the “other” corner of the carpet, holding down the LTT fort & getting the Behind the Scenes scoop. This basically means I got to wonder FIRST why the likes of Heather Locklear & Seth Green were there. (Still wondering)
I'm told she's a Kardashian relative
By the time the red carpet attendees got down by me, they had gone through two rows of fans, all the photographers & then the International press. The spot was where they relaxed before going into “major” press interviews. And by “major” I, of course, mean that one 16 year old Kardashian half-sister who was filling in for Ryan Seacrest. The spot is also where the handlers & dates of the celebs congregated while the interviews were being conducted. It was also like a C-list celeb meat market. Everyone was hugging everyone & I can only assume they all knew each other because once they were bad guys or murder victims on the same CSI episode. If I knew who half the people were it would have been fascinating.
Getting my picture with the most important celeb on the carpet
When the crowd thinned a bit, I decided to have a snack. Since I snack like a 3 year old, I pulled a sandwich bag filled with Goldfish crackers out of my Chanel bag. And proceeded to do what I do every time I eat Goldfish crackers. Drop them. If you’re wondering if an orange baked cracker blends in on a dark black carpet, the answer is no.
Finding out that a certain cast member of a certain movie couldn’t pay his rent last month
Seeing Nikki Reed run away from International Press to give her husband, Paul, a big hug, before running back for more interviews. It was adorable. So adorable I thought it deserved a piano ballad:
When Jackson came over, the person to my left got a picture with him and so did the person to my right. When he looked at me wondering if I was going to ask for a picture too, I just smiled and contemplated giving him a high-five or asking to stroke his velvet suit.
Seeing first-hand how little moments that happen can change into these big, fabricated or exaggerated stories. There is this rumor floating around that Kristen and her publicist got in a fight on the carpet & she RIPPED the sharpie out of her publicists hand and ran over to her adoring fans. I caught that moment on film & if talking means fighting & taking a marker your publicist is handing you is RIPPING it from her hands, then yes, that’s exactly what happened:
No Big Daddy in sight
Rob didn’t fall in love with me when he was mere inches from my face. I think he saw the goldfish crackers stuck in my teeth
Taylor gave the International press a thumbs up instead of me
Kristen didn’t throw anything in my face. Neither did a crazed Krisbian on an initiation mission. I was even wearing my “Kristen-hater” Sign* Sigh.. there’s always next year
It was sooo cold. Not just California-cold, but winter jacket cold. And my short lace dress (and no tights) was NOT keeping the warmth in.
I left that night still holding the grenade I was gonna throw at Bruno Mars. I never saw him come down the carpet.
It was incredible night- one I could go on about for hours & hours, but I’ll just leave you with this montage of the random, the weird, the great & the pretty: The REAL Red Carpet:
Yep- just noticed a misspelling in the above video. Too late to care. Oh well! It’ll be a contest. First person to spot the mistake gets a fake prize —-> a photoshoot in Carlisle’s Breaking Dawn wig. Lucky you.
*This is false. I left my sign at home**
**Also false. It’s at my office ***
***Do you get it now? We don’t have a Kristen-hater sign****
****It’s a Build board we took out on the 101. Too bad Nokia line is off the 110*****
*****I could go all day….******
******In case you’re new: All of that is false.
As you know, Monday we attended the black carpet premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (say that 5 times fast after spending 4 hours on the carpet, not eating and an open bar at the after party). Since we were asked to represent Letters to Twilight on the Twilight fansite/press section of the carpet we came prepared with a handycam, a couple iPhones, questions and some killer heels.
So since we fancy now, I’ll just let us, via video, take it away with the introduction…
Please forgive us for the WORST camera angle of ALL time. ALL.TIME.
After a microphone snafu which made me beg like 10 friends for microphones we picked up our GOLD mic (which would later turn into a talking point during our interviews) and busted arse to Nokia Live because we thought we were late to check in but as with all events, they were running way behind. So while we stood in the press check in line between some old grizzled Australian cameraman talking to some newswoman with a football helmet for hair about their days at the ’96 Olympics I gave myself a little sidewalk mani
After some mob rule style check in we found this little beauty greeting us…
We knew we had arrived. .
We then met up with Val from Twilight Poison who we would be teamed up with that night along with Lindsay from Team Twilight and Tracy from Twilightish. .
After we sat up the too short tripod, plugged in the spray painted gold microphone I borrowed from a friend and the handycam I stole from my Dad who bought it to capture my new niece (nothing but the best yall!) we decided to run around like we knew what we were doing getting b-roll and trying not to photo/video bomb EVERYONE’s intro videos… minus that blond kid who looked like he was from the Disney Channel. I definitely ran into him while he was asking some fans about being Team Edward or Team Jacob. Team give me a break people!! COME ON!
After we were all set up UC was whisked away to a different section and I picked up that klassy gold mic cause it was time to DO THIS! Let me just give a shout out to Lindsay from Team Twilight because we rocked the questions together for a lot of our interviews. Between us working the questions and record buttons and juggling mics and press alerts and Vale and Tracy on still cameras we were working ALL the angles. That is definitely what she said.
So of course we got about 8 gabillion little interviews with every vampire in the free world from A to Z list cast and we’ll definitely bring you those soon because there’s some CLASSIC moments in those along with some wah wah waaaaah moments. In the spirit of keeping this post from taking us 10 hours to write we’ll bring you the best of the best in this post…
Speaking of the best… THIS GUY!!! Wyck is officially my new obsession… well besides our two other new obsessions whom we shall reveal later but srsly… WYCK GODFREY you guys. Letters to Wyck… Oh wait that exists. Enjoy his little dance.
Speaking of seeing Renesmee here’s little Mackenzie Foy making her first Twilight appearance! How flipping cute is this kid?
And really, the first family mother and daughter in blue?! Stop is guuuuiiize! Next you’re gonna tell me you scheduled a Christmas card photo shoot on the beach in matching white tshirts and blue jeans. .
Dude, Bella and Edward don’t need Prof. Kinsey in BD Part 2?! Hold on to your butts ladies cause Fade to Sad could get Fade to HOT DAMN in part 2 if Bill’s not pulling a Rob on us and totally making shiz up. #TeamBill .
And the winner of Best Dressed at the Breaking Dawn Pt 1 Premiere award goes to… TWO WAY TIE between Jacky’s creepy crushed velvet children’s birthday party magician look and Dean’s girlfriend (she likes man jewelry) with the stomach cut out jump suit. All that’s missing from this look is a velvet turban… and regret. .
That’s right we asked a good question Melissa!
Then this happened…
Yes, he was this close to me… This will get it’s own letter at LTR and it’s own video because moments of immense hope and moments of great lose deserve to be immortalized forever on a blog. Duh.
We didn’t have too long to cry because things on the red carpet move like Bella driving a motorcycle (Twilight jokes!): at break neck speed, throwing caution to the win, with the hopes of hearing Rob, I mean Edward’s voice and sometimes ending in a big crash and burn. Oh it happened.
But with tragedy comes greatness… enter Stephenie Meyer…
Then THIS happened…
Yes, that is for all you LTT readers and commenters. The.Best.
After this came Taylor and Kristen and Rob again but because of time constraints and the film starting we could only get within inches of them, gold mic poised and question hanging in mid air before they were whisked away by handlers. “BOO you whores.” But really after that kind of shout out from Stephenie who needs the trinity……… this time.
There is SOOOOOO much more to come we can’t possibly cover it all in one post so stick with us… same LTT time, same LTT channel…
Moon and UC
PS you guys… the MOVIE… the movie…the.movie. we’ll talk soon.
PPS I’m going to act like my weird valley girl-esque accent can not be heard in all these videos. Please also do the same
So were you watching the live feeds at home? Were you there at the premiere? Are you in serious love with Wyck?
We couldn’t have done it without our partners in crime on the carpet: Twilight Poison, Team Twilight and Twilightish. Go visit them, follow them on Twitter and like them on Facebook to see their take on the premiere!
