Ultimate scandal nominee: Kristen Stewart

It was the embrace seen around the world.

When US Weekly published photos of “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart having an affair with her married “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders, the fans, known as “TwiHards,” were shocked and dismayed.

Stewart had been dating her “Twilight” co-star, Robert Pattinson, for three years (although neither of them officially confirmed their status) when photos of her and Sanders locked in a passionate embrace were released.

Pattinson was said to be “beyond devastated” while Stewart released an apology saying “I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”

It remains to be seen whether the former golden couple will be able to work through this rough patch or whether they will split up for good.
