Rachelle Lefevre Replaced!!!

Ok, so, have you heard the latest? Rachelle Lefevre,( seen here on top left) who plays Victoria in the Twilight Saga being replaced!!!! Apparently it is due to scheduling conflicts, which I really do not understand. Don't they have a 3-movie contract?YES THEY DO! Didn't she know when Eclipse was being fiimed? OF COURSE SHE DID! I am telling you, there is more to this story than what we are hearing. I think this is Summit's doing...and it comes down to 1 thing....MONEY! Bigger name = bigger audience = bigger paycheck for Sumit. Or perhaps it's enticement for Ron Howard (Bryce's father) to direct Breaking Dawn? Who really understands Sumit's motives anymore.
Nothing is more infuriating to me than when they replace cast members in mid-stream, whether it be a TV show or a movies series such as this one. It completely screws up the dynamics of the characters and the flow of the story. I am so extremely BUMMED right now! There replacement is none other than Bryce Dallas-Howard.(seen here, botton right) Ok, she is fantastic, and I happen to like her alot. I think she can fill the shoes of Victoria very easily, but let's not kids ourselves. She IS definitely going to change the flow of the story. It's going to be very odd to see her face in Eclipse instead of Rachelle. Yes, yes, I know, get over it....and I've got 10
month's to swallow it....but it IS a tough swallow. Summit, I really hope you know what you're doing. And for God's sake.....DON'T SCREW UP BREAKING DAWN!!!

New Moon Sneak Peek

If you don't already know, YES I am a huge...massively obsessed Twilight fan. My day would not complete without getting my daily fix. So, today's fix is : an exclusive sneak peek clip of New Moon recorded from this weekends Comic Con. No words can say how excited I am to see this movie, but alas, we still have 4 months to go. In the meantime, enjoy.

My Friend Pete

Had a frustrating conversation with a my dear friend Pete this morning. I've had this talk with Pete many times before mind you. Have you even gotten to the point where you just want to shake someone incessantly till they see the light? My friend Pete does this to me on a regular basis. Why remain friends with him, you ask? Well somewhere in my convoluted mind, I feel the uncontrollable urge to help and fix everyone. ( wouldn't it be lovely if I could apply those same terms to my own life)
Pete has been married for 11 years, with two lovely children. Pete's problem....he's a walking doormat. OK, so perhaps that is just MY term for him. He's a great guy, funny, sincere, loving...but wow, is he the most insecure and passive person I have probably ever met. His wife, well, just say she wears the pants in the family; along with the only set of balls in the household too. He is miserable in his marriage and though I don't know her personally, I am guessing she is too. She has major resentment issues towards him. Reasonably so I'd guess, a few years back, Pete had a battle with alcohol and gambling, where she was left to hold the family together. But he has since cleaned up his act, is doing very well and striving to do what's best for his family. With the physical hurtles behind them both, neither has worked on the mental aspect of their marriage. I get to hear him complain everyday how she belittles him, and chides him like a 12 yr old boy. But he takes it, without ever saying a word ( except to me) , thus the walking doormat has come to be. I asked him some tough questions does he still truly love her, does he want to remain with her and is he willing to work on making things better. I got yes answers to all of them. That's a good start. He's got to regain some power in the relationship and gain some self respect along with it. He plans on having a sit down talk with her. I hope he does. Even more importantly, I hope she listens. They don't need to be miserable if they can just find a common ground.
