The night starts further back. It starts back at like 7 PM when 3 or 4 hounds & paps were waiting at the residence with myself. At that time we were considering going to check out a red carpet event for the VIFF that apparently Jodelle Ferland & Daniel Curmore were scheduled to attend. This was the plan for a couple hours, infact it was the plan right up until I was ready to leave when things changed.
Before we were about to leave I went for a short bathroom break. While doing so I got a call telling me Sam Bradley, Robs good friend was playing a short set at a fashion show, and that this was going to happen in less than 20 mins. I got back to where I was & was simply going to tell my friends "I gotta go" since theres an understanding that sometimes, no matter how good of friends you are, you cant share certain info if its someone elses. Ironically this would bite me in the butt again a bit later. So guess turnabout is fair play.
Before I had a chance to leave I found out they too had the info. So with the cat out of the bag, we all left for this event. When we got there we found out the event was small & frankly, not a Rob type of environment. But, we sat on it incase. Afterall, this was Sams last night in town before he started a large 2 month tour. & we suspected Rob was going to see him at some point.
The show ended & Sam left with his gf. No Rob. We then decided at that time to see if we could generate any leads & left the scene. Shortly after, I got a text from one of the various fans that ask ME for info usually. In it she asked if I had heard anything of the cast being in Kits. I had not & phoned her back to hear if she had more info on it. But got no reply. So I decided it wasnt overly worth pursing yet since thats a large area to cover & with no exact lead, not enough to go on.
We decided to break into 2 units out of the group I was with at the time. We scoured the Gastown & Yaletown areas & some of the other notable hotspots. We were still empty & my friend decided to take a chance & check out the Kits lead. We scoured the area. Ironically, we didnt plass the 2-4 block stretch where they would be.
After deciding there was nothing to go on immediately, we sat down & grabbed a bite to eat when we got a call from the other car "hey, have you heard of a place called Pinkys" he asked. The guy I was with, living near there had & we headed out for it immediately.
Upon arriving I saw all the familiar faces there. Including someone who I had tried calling a couple times to see if he knew something, only to get his answering machine (remember the whole turnabout fair play thing.?). It was definitely the place. The place, Pinkys Steakhouse.
We didnt have long to wait as we were some of the last people to show up for the event. Shortly afterwards Sam & a female were leaving. Got to admire Sam. Super class act. Even though he KNOWS why everyone is there, he still treats everyone with respect. Lots of friends of major celebs would scowl & look down at you. He truly is a great guy & its for this reasoN I actually hope he succeeds. Because he deserves it. We had a short chat about his tour & going overseas & he was excited to be going. Then he gave one final nod & left in a cab.
Not too much longer after, John came out. Again, breif chat. He said their night was going well, chit chatted about the weather breifly, then it was time. The cab arrived & Rob would lead the charge.
I had a great position & if I would just get it thru my head that situations like this are likely to generate little ot no autograph possibilities, maybe I would eventually clue in & just photograph or videotape. But I went for an autograph again. It wasnt going to happen. They beelined for the cab. Rob, Kristen & random woman who I have seen various people ID as Stephanie Ritz, but I myself cant confirm this, since I dont know what she looks like.
The cab was leaving & the parade of vehicles were in pursuit. My driver was the lead car & had them from the word go till the final destination. On the drive there Kristen was repeatedly checking to see who was following. I've never seen her act so off about this. My friend even said during the drive "shes never like this". It was odd. Eventually we arrived at the hotel.
We pulled over hastily & got out. No less than 4 people follwed up onto the property. Myself & my driver were a bit back & breifly caught them going in, while the other driver followed them right in. I'm not going to get into a 10 paragraph debate on right vs wrong of the situation. He even admits he hated doing it, so the level of unacceptable has certainly been set. My driver & myself went no closer than the doors, while he went right in & videotaped them waiting to get ont he elevator & of course, having the breif argument.
The argument. Its why some of you are reading this. So here it is.
It had nothing to do with the two random people that were there around the same time. Frankly, no idea what they were doing there. 1 of them gets in with R&K, so I dont even know if they were together, since the other one appears to leave. Quite weird & random & more importantly, irrelevant to the discussion.
What you hear Rob say is "I'm sorry I paused.." This was undeniable. Oddly, I dont think I saw a single person say that in all the replies I saw places about the vid. Probably because people wanted it to mean more, or because arguing about pausing seems odd.
Kristen replies "Can we just wait..". the second part there was disagreemnt over.
" & do this in the elevator please?" or "till these people are on the elevator please?"
I'm convinced it was the first, one of my friends thought it was the latter. In either case, kristen is basically saying in her own way "not right now Rob, people are here".
It took awhile to figure it out, because we didnt get what they were talking about. What was he apologizing for?
Perhaps we are wrong is our assumptions about the arguing point, but the dialogue was clear. Our assumption (all assumption at this point) is Kristen was annoyed at missing an elevator because she did her best Usain Bolt impersonation, while Rob casually looked to saunter at first, then realized he was supposed to be running. Seems silly by itself, but you can see Kristen was apparently in a bad mood & this annoyed her. When I posted that I called it "interesting material" people jumped to all sorts of conclusions. It is interesting, because you never see them publicly aruging like this.
Personally, I was uncomfortable with seeing it because it was too personal of a moment. The videographer as well was unsure what to do. But he opted to sell it, as reality is, money is money. I can tell you he certainly does feel bad about it & I know many of you will debate how he can feel bad if it he did it blah blah blah etc. But people do things everyday they might not be happy about, have a choice NOT to do it, but still do....including most of you.
The video will likely be spun by everyone to fit their needs.
People who are pro-Robsten will say how its proof they are together because only people dating would argue over such a small thing.
People anti-Robsten will say its just two friends having an argument.
People against paps will point how this is an invasion of privacy.
People who hate Kristen will say its proof shes a bitch.
People who hate Rob will say how hes a pussy for letting Kristen walk all over him, blah blah blah.
Stark reality is, NO ONE but Rob and Kristen...and maybe the other person that was with them in the cab, knows what the entire dispute was. Did we literally just hear 2 lines of a 10 min argument? Or was it literally a 5 second letting off of steam & forgotten by them?
More importantly, who cares?
I'm only discussing it because I was there & saw the vid before it was released & we debated over whether it should be put out or not. Otherwise my blog would have ended 4 or 5 paragraphs ago.
Its not like they were arguing about a drug deal or where they hid a body. It was about "pausing". Seems really pointless, and if it were not for the over-analytical fanbase of this couple, it would be NOTHING. But because so many fans live vicariously thru "Edward & Bella" this matters to them...and because of that, this video is out there. Gossip cop & whoever else runs it are even MORE to blame. They bought it. They paid money for the material.
