Smart and media savvy, Stewart knew which word would rock the blogosphere.........“lesbian”
While it’s surprising that the majority of outlets actually took the time to read two paragraphs and understand the comments’ context, the fact that these same outlets used Stewart’s plea to leave her personal life alone as just another opportunity to keep it in the news cycle is all too predictable.
If there were not millions of fans who DID care about Stewart’s relationships, the tabloids and the sites Gossip Cop monitors would have no incentive to badger her.
What Gossip Cop wants, and what we think nearly all of our readers want (judging by your comments and e-mails) is not just honesty in reporting, but also civility and respect.
Her private life – like Pattinson’s, like Lautner’s, like everyone’s – is private. The celebrities who let fans get a glimpse of their lives are the ones who do so willingly and happily. They are not browbeaten or blackmailed into it.
