While Moon & I were together in LA, we were asked by the girls at Twilight Series Theories to join them & a few other fansites in a podcast sponsored by Yahoo! There were panels discussing favorite moments of the series, what we’re looking forward to in Breaking Dawn and Twilight Trivia brought to you by Moon & UC.
Wondering if one of us held an apple (YOU know the way) for the contestant to grab when they knew the right answer? Yep. Of course we did that.
Oh and Boo Boo Stewart was there. We made Mr. Choice tweet while we were trivia-ing it up, and I think he thought it was Justin Bieber.
(No I can’t tell you when we come in because I’m too 1st-hand embarrassed to listen to ourselves! We are RIGHT in the beginning & then close to the end)
This past Turkey Day during our annual “Go around the table and say what you are thankful for” (which, in actuality, was “Oops- we forgot to go around the table & say what we were thankful for so let’s talk about it quickly while we’re doing the dishes”) I shared that I was thankful for you. And I knew it sounded silly to my family, so I explained a little further that it wasn’t the 4 glasses of Thanksgiving wine talking. I was truly thankful that Stephenie Meyer wrote a story that a work acquaintance suggested I read that was turned into 4 movies and gave me 5 excuses to go to Los Angeles over the past 3 years. So much has happened in my life because of a silly little story about a vampire, human and werewolf, and I’m just so glad. Here are a few of the very real things I was reflecting on:
I’m thankful for Moon because without her I’d be a much different person. She makes me better in so many ways, including having better eyeshadow shading.
I’m thankful for ALL the LTT friends who have become real-life friends:
KrazyKidd, myself & Brookelockart, occupying the backseat of our rental car
I’m thankful that BooBoo Stewart had more lines than most of the Cullens. Cuz I mean, finally.
I’m thankful for fun Midnight movie Premieres where we have reserved seats and where 1/4 of our crowd are BOYS:
I think Moon said it best in our Breaking Dawn recap “Fade to Sad-isfied,” but I’m thankful that BD wasn’t a Robsten porno & that Edward & Bella were actually Edward & Bella and not Rob & Kristen. Bill Condon really GOT how to direct them together.
I’m thankful that a 3 am blogging session brought out the phrase “Fade to Sad-isfied.” Come on. That’s FUNNY!
I’m thankful for the new LTTers we got to meet this trip. And all the LTT shirts they owned:
I’m thankful that I have eyelids that I’m able to shut because I REALLY needed to during the gory birth/back-breaking/edward eating baby out of Bella scene!
For us here in the states it’s time to celebrate THANKSGIVING!!!! A day (long weekend) to hang with your family, eat a 20 pound roasted/brined/fried/dead bird and be thankful for stuff like your health and friends and crushed velvet suits and Twilight. For those not in the know or need a refresher, we (and by we I mean HeyyyBrother) explained it to Rob on LTR many moons again. It’s a freaking hilarious read if you have time to kill between turkey basting sessions or if you’re like me and want to avoid potentially politically charged conversations with your uncle who arrived in an RV equipped with a satelite dish installed especially for Fox News.
To say we’re thankful for YOU all is an understatement you guys make this what it is, we just provide some nonsense every few days. 2011 has been a redonkulous year and we’re so thankful for all that it’s added to our Twilight and non Twilight lives. We’re also thankful it’s Thanksgiving because we’ve both been running nonstop since Halloween doing Twilight related stuff and this is a legit excuse to take a breather. THANK YOU Pilgrims and the Native Americans you encroached on all those years ago.
We truly hope you enjoy your next few days and sit back and ponder all you have to be thankful for… even if it’s just the fact Jackson didn’t look super crazy in Breaking Dawn. It’s SOMETHING, right?! Even if you’re not in the states or American, Thanksgiving doesn’t just have to happen on American soil or in American households… we all have a ton to be thankful for……… including vampires and werewolves.

Oh and if you happen to see two girls throwing elbows at the Hot Topic Black Friday sale just give us the 50% off Alice film replica chokers and no one gets hurt.
*REMINDER: You can mute the sound from the ads on the sidebar AND at the bottom of the page. They will stay muted forever. YAY! Now read in blessed silence*
Oh you thought we were done with our stories, did you? (Recap #1 and Recap #2 in case you missed them!) Well, we’re not… So get excited for a lot of random info you never knew you wanted to know:
Before the craziness started, we snapped a shot with our lovely friend & new LA transplant @katespencer who does red carpet stuff for VH1.
Speaking of Vh1, we were featured as “Super Fans” on Friday (duh- we’re the biggest superfans out there proved by our Twilight-themed guest bathrooms & “I’ll take Edward and Jacob” matching underwear) and got a ton of Krisbian-hate!! Did you guys know we owned “I Hate KStew” t-shirts? Yeah, we didn’t know that either. UC & Moon: Biggest Super Fans around
Before anyone important hit the carpet, we got a group shot with the other fan sites on the carpet. Girl power represent! (Oh yeah, Kaleb Nation aka The Twilight Guy was there and Andrew from Twisource too but I think we scared them off before this picture)
But you really shouldn’t miss Moon’s interview with Eric Odom. Especially because he gives her “the eyes.” You know the “I”m a c-list actor and so you really should want me now and why don’t we skip this whole movie thing and jump the after party(in my pants) ifyouknowwhatimsaying” eyes:
The eyes didn’t work, sorry, Eric. But you should really get that tattoo cause chicks dig Twilight related tatts (they don’t).
And if you’re looking for a BRILLIANT piece of cinematography, look no further than our interview with Nikki Reed, when the camera wasn’t pointing at her until the last second:
(Let’s give a slow clap to Moon for doing a great job at pretending she had listened to Nikki’s song!)
REMINDER: There are 4 auto-play video ads that play sometimes throughout the day. Find them & Mute them (hit the volume button) They will stay muted. Two on the side (or directly below this post) and two all the way at the bottom!
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.
