Annechantal/Brianne, whatever the fuck you care to call yourself. Your recent blog "outing" people is riddled with massive inaccuracies.
Now I cant confirm or deny some things. Only the likes of those she belittled could, since they were apparently in private. But what I can cofirm is various other things she was 100% wrong about.
First up- Mandy. This past weekend several cast members had a dinner at Gotham Steakhouse. Mandy was infact there. Well after they went in.
So, time to rip apart a blog.
She claims Mandy works for Punkd. FALSE. In fact Mandy has only ONCE ever done any work with a pap, and it was with two of the people Punkd detests the most. One being ME.....LAST FILM & she admitted she didnt like doing it afterwards. As far as I know she has no connection to punkd outside of occasional twitter replies, but she also replies to ME on twitter. Does that mean she works with me too? Both Punkd and myself wouldnt tolerate that as many of you know from reading our tweets.
She claims Mandy was at the restaurant before any paps showed up & that she tipped off Punkd of all people. FALSE. For one, the cast party was outed by a cast member who went down there & was tailed by a L.A. pap. HE was the first on the scene, and made the call where they were to his partner. Back up/other agencies came after following a group of 6-8 cast members from the residence to the same locale. Once there, the secret was out. I was one of the last to arrive, and when I got there, there was already 8-10 paps & hounds. MANDY didnt even arrive till probably 10-15 mins after I did. I saw her show up. As for the agency Mandy allegedly contacted, PUNKD, they were the LAST agency to show up. Dead LAST. So if she tipped off Punkd, who allegedly she works for, and she was the first one to know....why were they the last to arrive? They were last, because everyone else FOLLOWED the cast there, and they didnt have a car to follow readily available. They only found out because another cast member outed the location to them (which later turns out was clever by him, as it gave the primary cast an easy night out with ALL the paps now centered on the secondary cast dinner.).
As for the apparent paps/pap groupies fiasco.
Maybe some of this is right? I cant confirm it or deny it since I was not there for it.
What I can disagree with though is, her uneducated ass not knowing who Chris works with, or what Punkd looks like.
YOU CAN NOT get these two mixed up, one is a middle aged bald overweight guy who dresses in crocs & basketball jerseys. The other, dresses fairly average, has a full head of hair, and is fairly younger.... Somehow she got those two people mixed up.
1- they didnt rent the balcony at DTSS. That was Splash News. Which IS NOT their agency.
2- If Lainey ran those pics, she didnt get them thru Punkd. AGAIN, different agency.
3- Punkd is married & as far as I know, not cheating on his wife. One of the few douchey things he doesnt do it seems.
Again, more foolish idocy she was incredibly wrong on.
In the future Briannechantalwhateveryouwannacallyourself. Do homework before "outing" people. If you dont, you might be made to look like an uneducated moron on the web...which I suspect isnt far from what you look like in person.
For the record, its been brought to my attention (havent confirmed this...feel free to prove this wrong, as it isnt MY info) this is the same witless tard who claims to have seem R&K out together & has a pic of them kissing....but still hasnt posted it, or sold it.
A piece of advice to this nutjob.
If you want blog hits/twitter followers. Do it with FACTS. Making up things will get you SHORT TERM success, but people will flee when they find out you are full of bullshit.
Last night was the 40th birthday of David Slade. It was assumed there was going to be some large get together of the cast with David. Little did we know, David was hard at work on his birthday, while some fo the cast took the chance to have a dinner together.
I got downtown early evening all ready for who knows what, but I suspected it was going to be late. I started out at the Sheraton, but soon after chose to change locales to the residence. While there I found out several cast members left all together & that everyone at the residence had left to follow. It took awhile, but eventually the cat was out of the bag.
A variety of cast were at Gotham Steakhouse. This is one of the more notable eateries in Vancouver. Celebs of all levels dine there, gangsters dine there, athletes dine there, politicians, you name it. So it was hardly some hidden little hole in the wall find.
What was not known was exactly who all were in there. A variety of paps were there, several autograph hounds & a two fan/informants. All the regular paps, hounds & informants were in the mix. What was missing was Rob, Kristen & a few other notables.
It was obvious they had opted to have another get together elsewhere away from the high profile big fancy look at me steakhouse dinner. That was where the less notable cast, Stephenie Meyer and Kellan Lutz went to dine. The majority of the main cast Rob, Kristen, Ashley, Nikki, Elizabeth, Jackson & Xavier, went elsewhere.
At one point I decided to try a hunch & went on a wild goose chase to a few hot spots to see if the others could be found, but I came up empty & eventually came back to Gotham. When I got there I was informed that Kellan had just left a minute earlier & everyone had gone to chase. To top it off, one of the two people I thought would be there for any following that was required decided to book off for the night because of a girl. Which is all fine and good...MOST nights, but not one where you know there is potentially a big evening on the line. The other followed Kellan, but soon lost him & while they were gone, the rest of the party let out.
First up was the Wolves. Chaske Spencer, Bronson Pelletier, Alex Meras & Kiowa Gordon all went into a cab together. Chaske & Bronson signing a couple autographs each on the way to the vehicle. I got 1 from Chaske, as I didnt need the others.
After them, everything was a bit of a blur. I recall seeing Stephenie Meyer leave with a couple people, but I couldnt tell you if it was with cast or not.
Daniel Cudmore I believe left on his own.
I also believe Charlie Bewley left on his own.
But I cant be certain in either case.
Julia Jones & Bryce Dallas Howard I believe left together.
Cameron Bright, his mom, Jodelle Ferland & someone I assume was her mom, I believe left together. I stopped Jodelle for an autograph. I am a huge Dead Like Me fan & she is a pretty notable guest spot in the pilot, so getting her to ME was cool. I coerced her to sign a second autograph. She seemed willing, but the lady with her (perhaps her mom) was not as eager for her to do it. I had a 3rd photo as well, but after how hard it was to convince her to sign the 2nd, I took what I got & let it go for another time.
It took less than 5 minutes & the place was a ghost town & not one single person around to follow any of them.
From there, my friend & I decided to focus our attention on a flight coming in that had Taylor Lautner. Giving up temporarily on the chase of the possible cast get together (at this time we didnt know DS was working still, we still thought there was a bday get together somewhere).
When we got to the airport we found it out it was the worst kept secret of all time. Somewhere between 12 & 15 people were out there waiting for this flight. When it landed we looked around & my friend saw Taylor coming thru, and quickly realized he was not going to come thru the door we expected him to. So everyone scrambled back to the inside where we were drooling at the prospect of him taking the long way thru. We were fooled, he had been wisked away in some way that we still havent figured out, but he was taken from the arrivals level to the departures level. Most of the group made their way upstairs by escalator & elevator. As my elevator got up there I looked & saw no sign of him. Everyone thought they had been duped, and headed away. At the last second, I saw several hundred feet away, one of the locals from http://www.twilight-gossip.com speed walking away from us, a second later I saw someone getting an autograph waaaaaay down the terminal. I beelined down there, sure enough it was Taylor Lautner & his dad with an escort guard and another autograph hound getting him to sign. I got over there & the guard told me to get back or I would be arrested. I backed off, and was ready to make my move maybe 75-100 feet down where there was a break, as they were hiding behind check in counters. But I didnt have to make a move, they came out towards us. I asked again, and his dad asked politely "what colour pen do you have" I said blue, he looked on disapprovingly, so I said I had a black too, which he took, handed to Taylor & he proceeded to sign for me, another hound, then another for me, before being hurried to his towncar. One pap got a few shots of him, but for the mostpart, the large crowd downstairs didnt even get a sniff of him. In toll I think only 4 or 5 people got anything out of him, autographs, pics or anything.
After he was gone there was a pretty unfriendly verbal altercation between the female guard who was escorting them to the car & a pap. I wasnt at the hotel when Taylor showed up, but the report is that the driver of the car & perhaps Taylors dad got out & lambasted those that were there for the incident at the airport, as she had apparently phoned the driver to tell him what went on.
By the time I got back downtown (BTW- the new skytrain is fast once it gets going, but I waited like 10-15 mins for it to show up, then leave.) it was clear Rob was out somewhere & those that knew were not interested in sharing with the others. So after an hour or so of taking random stabs in the dark to see if we could find anything I called it a night and came home.
Not a total disaster, but not as great of an evening as projected.
Final total for the night
2 Taylor Lautners, 2 Jodelle Ferland, 1 Chaske Spencer & a few pics.
Below are the pics of Jodelle, Daniel Cudmore & Charlie Bewley (with Cameron Bright over his shoulder) from the dinner.
After fighting off the general of all colds lately, I finally put in some quality time hounding yesterday & had reasonably decent results.
After a quick stop off to get a few Canucks in the late morning/early afternoon, it was off to go for Eclipse.
First stop was to get a few BooBoo Stewart autographs at the former ground zero of the Eclipse cast. Since the mass exodus of the cast earlier this month from there, its been relatively a ghost town. However, it seems cast members who are here for breif stints still go there...this included Booboo. When I showed up he was sitting outside, hanging with 2 people, sipping away on a Subway drink while his friends were eating. Eventually they got up to leave & my friends & I grabbed a few autographs & a I took a few pics. Hewas incredibly pleasant & seemed thrilled with the attention.
After that I headed to the still practically unknown destination of the current Eclipse cast. Although still in the downtown core, we opted to drive over there. Things seemed dead for awhile, then eventually there were small signs of life.
First person sighted was Chaske Spencer. My friend hurried over to get him before he went in the door. I showed up a few seconds later & snapped a few pics of him before he headed inside. He told us about the long nights of shooting where they werent getting back till 7 AM. He said he was going upstairs to catch a nap...cant blame him. It was clearly a short nap though, as I would see him more later.
At the same time we saw Chaske, another celebrity was spotted going to a store nearby. Current Smallville villian & best known as Mason on Dead Like Me, Callum Blue was out doing a bit of shopping. I was going to snap a few pics of him as he left, but he came out & spotted me & started up a conversation....so I would have felt like a real dick taking shots then. We chatted for a minute as he walked back to his residence, not far from where the Twilighters now reside.
Sometime after that, and before the next encounter I saw a handful of the 100 Monkeys leave for their show they had last night at Neptoon Records.
There was a bit of a lull after that. We would eventually see Chaske again going out with a friend. A little while after that from a distance one of the hounds noticed Xavier Samuel & 2 girls leaving in the opposite direction. We hurried after them, eventually catching up to him just before he was about to go & see a film. He stopped & signed a few autographs, and posted for a couple pics before heading inside.
Upon returning there was an excitement that things were picking up. As it turned out, it was not really the case. A bit of a lull happened again, but when it was finally broken it was hectic.
Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon & Bronson Pelletier came out together & headed towards the club area. I stopped Bronson first, then Kiowa. Both who seemed fine with being stopped. Alex kept going forward. I caught up to him & asked him to sign as well, he gave me a less than impressed look & signed 1 with what seemed like a pained look on his face. I had heard he was not too receptive to autographs, clearly they were right. I then pushed my luck & asked if the 3 of them would mind posing for a pick. I got an enthusiastic reply from 2 of them & they posed long enough for me to get 1 good pics. I'll give you 3 guesses who wasnt the overly enthused one. After that they went on their way & I returned to wait for more.
Shortly after that, Chaske was on his way back...again. I got him to sign a couple photos & he went inside.
As the evening wore on, I was getting itchy to go & check out the 100 Monkeys show. So I finally decided to take off & go to the venue. On my way to the bus to take me there I developed a mild leg cramp & decided I was going to stop off at home first, which was a slight detour from my route, but still close enough I could get to the venue in 20 mins if anything happened. As it turned out, that was actually the end of my day. I laid down to wait for the cramp to subside, but it never did & eventually I just fell asleep.....but all in all, a fairly decent day, so no regrets on bailing early.
Here is the 2nd video from their performance at the Rickshaw.
This was their improvised song, about Acorns.
Dont know why, but uploading these videos from the show has been painfully tiresome & challenging.
Here is 1 of the 2 I have.
Sorry this wasnt posted sooner, but I really didnt think there was anything profound in it worth rushing to get it up.
Its a few seconds ro Rob leaving in the cab at the Backstage Lounge show where Bobby Long was performing last week.
Early on you hear the now infamous "Kristen you're a bitch" comment.
Hearing it from where I was standing NOW, I have no doubt Kristen might have heard it as well. I was on the opposite side right near the drivers window & you can hear it quite clearly on my audio.
Anyways, nothing overly amazing about the vid outside of that & the breif blips of Rob you see when he was lit up. But I know you all wanted to see some Rob...so here it is.
FIRST- BE WARNED!!! I have a massive head cold, and a mild headache...so excuse me if I get some details out of order, or forget something you thought was notable etc etc.
Its not everyday the poorest postal code in Canada gets a notable celebrity playing a show it the area. Last night was that rare exception.
Of course 100 Monkeys were at the Rickshaw Theatre last night & played to a fairly packed show. Funny side story. I pass this theatre almost daily & till I heard Jackson Rathbone & his bandmates Ben Graupner, Jerad Anderson & Ben Johnson would be playing there I mistook it for a usually abandoned building. I have seen it open maybe 5 times ever & It doesnt even have a name displayed anywhere. I was more suprised when I got inside & saw not only was it a 2 level theatre style venue with seats, but that it had a standing & seating room of around a 1,000...but I'm getting ahead of myself here.
I showed up around 6 PM & waited at the back for Jackson to arrive. Shortly after being there I heard a soundcheck & was aware the band was, at least, partially there already. Some of the band members came out & left to go get food. No Jackson though.
About an hr or so later they returned & saw 2 fans & myself back there. When they arrived Ben (I believe Graupner) chatted breifly with us, remembered both the pair of fans & myself from their previous tour of the Vancouver area. The couple asked if he could get them tickets, and he happily obliged. He then asked me if I wanted to go, I said, I'll certainly go. A few minutes later the manager (without his trademark Banana suit...currently looking for a new banana suit as the old one was deemed no good anymore :( ) came out with 3 tickets & it was official, I was going to the show.
I had about 45 mins to an hr to kill, so I went home (a whole 4 blocks away) & dumped some stuff off & recharged my phone some. When I got back I saw the same couple still in the alley. They said Jackson hadnt arrived yet. So I waited with them. It was much darker now than when I left and rats were in abundance in the alleyways...and I'm not talking about L.A. Rats or the local rats. Eventually sometime in the first bands set a security guy came & said Jackson was already in. This would later be verified by a fan who went inside & said she saw him in the upstairs room that was sort of a "backstage" area for them...despite being infront of the stage up 2 levels. I headed inside after getting the disappointing news.
The show had 2 opening bands. Neither I heard (well, actually I heard part of the middle band, but I was focussed at that time on other things...which it turns out was foolish.) By the time the 100 Monkeys were set to take the stage I was already sweaty. It was ridiculously hot in the theatre & everyone was at the very least a bit sweaty. At this time its probably a good time to point out, of all the Twilight based events I have gone to, tonights crowd had the highest percentage of hot women I have seen at one yet. There was still some stereotypical Twinocerouses lurking about, but for the mostpart, the most aesthetically enjoyable crowd I have seen at one of these Twilight hotspot events.
I have to say, I never actually noticed what time the 100 Monkeys got on stage, but it turned into probably an hr to hr & 1/2 set. The band all took turns playing different instruments, Jackson played guitar, bass, drums & keyboards at different times. The other bandmates did as well. In typical Monkeys fashion, they did an improvised song...about Acorns tonight. They kept a good pace & were certainly giving a strong effort. They did a song right before their encore thanking all their fans for being there, which was kind of cool. Of course they squeezed in talking about Spencer Bell at the show & told everyone there if they didnt know who he was, to google him. I knew about this already as they told me last time that they would like me to make a donation for Jackson signing all our stuff to the http://www.spencerbellmemorial.ning.com website. I actually promised I would at the time & so far have failed to step up, last night was a good reminder.
If I dont talk about cast members at the show I am sure I will hear it from some random fan....so here it is. Nikki Reed & her bf Paris Latsis were seen in the overlooking private box at the side of the stage. Elizabeth Reaser was there as well. The one that blew me away & unfortunately I didnt know till after the show. Stephanie Meyer was also there.
Nikki & Elizabeth left only a few songs into the set. I didnt notice when Stephanie left, since I was unaware she was even there.
When the show ended I instantly headed for outside. 1- to find Jackson & the band. 2- to get fresh cool air. It was sweltering in there.
Outside 30 or so fans waited around the back, while 10-20 waited out front. Band equipment was making its way out for ever. It was then that I learned Stephanie Meyer was in there....I then noticed later, she was in some of my pics. If I had only known sooner. Eventually band members from 100 Monkeys started to leave & then I saw the flashes go off...it was Jackson. He spent little to no time leaving & was hurried into a minivan, and quickly wisked away. Jackson didnt interact with fans, which is VERY rare. I was shocked.
A good show. I took lots of pics & videos. Vids will be uploaded in a little while.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
