So as I just reported yesterday, Rob is getting the itch to go out. He considered it last night & opted not to.
Tonight, he committed.
A cast dinner (minus most or all of the human kids & Kristen Stewart) had a dinner tonight at Boneta Restaurant (which I have passed a thousand times on my way home, and always thought it could be a celeb hang out).
The evening waspainfully dull. For hours we were staked out at the hotel with no sightings outside of Robs security guard going out to do laundry & have a jog. Rob had returned from his day of shooting scenes at Como Lake School pretty early & we were all convinced he was going to go out tonight for sure.
The night dragged on, eventually it was around 9 PM when the first sign of life happened. Taylor Lautner left. A car trailed & found him at a restaurant just down the street, as it turned out he didnt eat there apparently. Just got dropped off there. Shortly after that the driver who followed returned & within minutes a cab with Kellan Lutz, Xavier Samuel, Ashley Greene & who we believe was Peter Facinelli left. We followed. They ended up at Boneta & soon we were hoping for a Rob & Kristen sighting. News would come to us shortly after that Taylor never went into that restaurant, but instead scooted across the street to grab Nikki Reed & Elizabeth Reaser & left. They were followed from ther,e but lost shortly after....ironically, close to Boneta. As it turns out, they got to Boneta before we did with the other cab. No one really knows when, but Billy Burke also showed up.
Then it happened, and it was both sad & funny.
With 4-6 LA paps, 2-3 Vancouver paps, 3 autograph hounds all just "hanging out" waiting for some of the cast to leave, who comes from across the street walking...ROB.
Heres the kicker, NO ONE noticed him till he was literally passing them.
With all those cameras in tow NO ONE was fast enough to snap off anything.
He literally got in scott free.
But where was Kristen was the next question. Kristen Stewart never came to the dinner. The ASSUMPTION (no proven fact, but strongly assumed) she went to dinner with her manager & brother, who recently got into town.
An hour- hour & 1/2 would linger on, which included a multi person argument between the un-educated staff of Boneta & the wily veterans of legal loopholes, the paps. I videotaped much of it incase there was a need for it. In the end, outside of some unflattering comments & some light pushing, nothing was made & a truce was bartered between the manager of the place & the paps.
I've seen how these "truces" usually work. Place theya re at says "we'll do the best we can to accomodate you". We agree & give them their space, and they try as hard as they can to fuck us over by sneaking them out back or side doors etc. With the exception of one nutjob who came out with Rob waving his hand going "no,no,no" they actually did what they said they would. They let us know they were about to leave, and didnt try to impeed our views, shots or anything. Quite civil in teh end.
One cab showed up. I cant even recall everyone that got in. Just that I remember seeing Billy Burke & I THINK Ashley Greene & Nikki Reed leave. It left. A few more minutes would go by before the next cab was ready. It was showtime. Rob was going to come out the front door with 10 or so paps, 3 autograph houdns & a light dusting of onlookers. He came out, head slightly down, hoodie up, beelined for the cab & was in. Elizabeth Reaser and I THINK Xavier Samuel got in with him. From there they left & headed back to their hotels never to be heard from again.
In the end it wasnt overly succesful for me or other autograph hounds. No autographs were had (except 1 Taylor...who left after everyone rushed out after Rob). Most of the paps there got something to satisfy their hunger & likely went away happy with the efforts.
Like I said yesterday, Rob is dipping his toes into the pool a little longer each time. I expect more interactions to come. Hopefully next time I will have some actual luck.

Thats Kristen in that photo..why are people lying..Rob only looks at Kristen like that.
8/29/2009 02:17:47 am
OK...So...was she or wasn't she???
8/29/2009 02:37:49 am
Someone else saw her there too, she's the tiny girl in the black hoodie.

its not Kstew in the hoddie at the table its Taylor in his hoodie... its a guys hands and Kristen ALWAYS wears two rings (at least) on her fingers.. so its not her..

Urbanmommies was wrong. Nikki was in a black hoodie as well as Taylor. Kristen was not there.
8/29/2009 09:32:13 am
Not sure who you guys THINK you see...but she is clearly not at that table.
8/29/2009 12:02:26 pm
not to be rude, but you guys almost missed Rob coming in right in front of you plus I find it interesting the ONLY pics of the person with the black hoodie had their head down. i don't think it is Kristen but no one can say for sure. billy burke wasn't caught going in the restaurant so who knows who else wasn't caught going in. the cast seems intent on making the papps/superfans job hard this time probably b/c of the way alot of those fans stalked them at restaurants last time
