Rob attended the "Saturday Morning Meeting" as the guest celebrity at the Walmart Headquarters in Arkansas. Walmart is launching their "Twilight store" full of Twilight merch!
Ashley Greene returned from Vancouver to host a "DonateMyDress" event at Saks Fifth Avenue in NYC. If you do not know about this charity, Donate My Dress is an organization that encourages young girls to donate their previously worn prom and special occasion dresses so that other young women can have a chance to enjoy a night that they may otherwise not be able to afford.
Talking about why she got involved with the good cause, Miss Greene described herself as coming from a poor family in Florida, telling, “I started working when I was, like, 13 or 14. My friends were, like, ‘Why are you always working?’”
I personally love that Ashley has hosted this event as I participated in this charity at one time in my own town and I hold it dear to my heart. Every girl deserves to feel special at prom.
Full aritcle here.
Also, if you are interested in this charity, you can go to their website at DonateMyDress

I am missing two CBA staff members!! A message was left on my voicemail today that our News Director Kim and Fan Fiction Specialist Joyce have left for Vancouver. Do you know what is in Vancouver?? That is right CULLEN BOYS (minus Jackson lol).
I need your help in the upcoming week. As many of you know I HATE doing the news (more like I suck at it) and I am going to need all the heads up I can get so email me with anything you come across. Crystal@CullenBoysAnonymous.com
Stay tuned I have a feeling some New Moon cast pictures are on their way.
Your Fellow Cullen Boys Addict,
Jackson Rathbone Online is reporting via Lainey Gossip that Jackson has left Vancouver for the time being after dinner out with the rest of the cast. We are also given a glimpse of his hair that was not visible when he arrived in Vancouver. I would assume that he is off to film "The Last Airbender" directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
You can view all of the pictures of Jackson at the airport in the Jackson Rathbone Online gallery
Kellan was featured in the Italian magazine Max and Twilight Italian Moms had the scans! You don't have to be able to speak Italian to know that these are some hot pictures.
Take a look at all of the scans over at Twilight Italian Moms
Thanks to the Twilight Italian Moms and also Lion And lamb Love who have the pictures posted in their gallery as well.
CBA posted the video from MTV where Niki Reed let us know that she will be wearing a blonde wig rather than dying her hair as she did in "Twilight". In the article accompanying the video, MTV also notes the hardship that the entire cast had with getting the "Cullen look" and how Chris Weitz looks to use a bigger budget to help this task.
"[My conversation with him] was revolving around the look of the Cullens; I don't know if we necessarily got it right the first time around," Reed explained. "We weren't expecting all the weather issues and all the makeup we had to put on. Every single character [had a hard time]. I know a lot of people think it was just me that changed how I looked physically, but Peter Facinelli has black hair, and he has to go back blond [for 'New Moon']. And Kellan Lutz, who is a natural blond, has to go back to dark hair."
Read the article here
It has been said that Nikki is not the only cast member wearing a wig rather than doing a dye job this time around. Jackson arrived in Vancouver sporting the haircut for his character in "The Last Airbender" which is significantly different than Jasper's hair. Nikki also mentioned above that Peter is naturally dark haired and Kellan is a blonde. So, do you like the new looks?
Since the photos from the "New Moon" set in Vancouver were put online, the topic of the actors and their smoking habits has been a popular discussion. The wonderful Amanda Bell over at The Examiner addresses what is becoming a bit of a controversy.
Rob and Kristen have both been documented smoking before, and it has fans in an uproar. Some say "it's gross," and that the film stars, who know that a large part of their audience are teenagers, twenty-somethings and women generally.
Read the full article here then let us know what you think. Do you think they should quit? Do you understand that they may need to unwind between takes? Does it matter at all?
The producers aren't talking, but we aren't hurt (well, maybe a little). But in the spirit of Canadian politeness and good business we'd like to offer the producers our suggestions for great backdrops for their bloody tale of chaste vampire love.
They have some great ideas with pictures to go with the suggestions. You can see the list here

It's Rachelle Lefevre! From hushhush026 via Twi Crack Addict:
"I saw her at downtown. She's super nice and extremely friendly. She asked for my name and even introduced herself to me. I still can't believe I was that up close and personal with her. I wouldn't have noticed her if it wasn't for her red hair! I was freaking out and nobody even notice her! She went into a couple of shoe store and a restaurant. It was an unforgettable moment for sure!"
Thursday night, the whole New Moon cast - including Kristen Stewart, Rachelle Lefevre and Robert Pattinson - headed to Gotham Steakhouse for dinner.
As as the cast was leaving, Jackson, 24, revealed to paparazzi that filming for New Moon will be starting earlier than anticipated. He shared, "[Rehearsals] They're going great, they're going great. We're actually going to start filming on Monday, so be sure to check it out."
Found via Twi Crack Addict.
"I'm so proud of him," she tells PEOPLE. "He didn't have the part."
"We were all on edge," Reed says about waiting to hear if Lautner had been cast again as Jacob. "It got closer and closer, and it was heartbreaking. Kristen [Stewart] and I were in Africa when we got the call saying he got the part. She's so stoked."

A big THANKS to Chyla for sending this in.
MTV's Larry Carroll asks Rosario Dawson about Parts Per Billion & Rob.
Read the article HERE.
November 21, 2008 was quoted to be "one of the worst weeks...ever" for the economy. Yet, Twilight, which was released in the U.S. on that date, made nearly $70 million on its opening weekend on that "worst" week's end. Now, the DOW is a little over 7,000, lowest in over a decade, etc. Will New Moon, which is to be released on November 20th of this year, escape the economic breakdown?
Read the article HERE. All the Twilight Fans know that this is a no brainer, New Moon will definitely escape the crisis.
Here are just a few of the tons of articles on Rob's GQ spread.
Just Jared: "Robert Pattinson Covers GQ In April"
Celebuzz: "Robert Pattinson Has GQ Covered"
Popsugar: "Robert Pattinson Faces His Fame"
Celebtv: "Robert Pattinson: Half A Valium Landed Him The Twilight Role"
LA Times Blog: "'Twilight' Robert Pattinson's GQ chat: sex, drugs and dog beds?"
It was also talked about on E! News along with other Twilight info:
People.com's Brian Orloff, has a story about Rob's GQ magazine interview & how he doesn't want a girlfriend at this time. Read it HERE.
HE'S HOT. HE'S SEXY. HE’S UNDEAD BY ALEX PAPPADEMAS
ROBERT PATTINSON ON LANDING THE PART OF EDWARD THE VAMPIRE IN TWILIGHT:
"I took half a Valium and then went into this thing - and all this stuff happened."
"It was the first time I've ever taken Valium," he says after a second, perhaps realizing how this sounds. "A quarter. A quarter of a Valium. I tried to do it for another audition, and it just completely backfired-I was passing out."
"If you met a guy like that in real life," Pattinson says, "you'd think he was kind of dorky."
He thought that at the end of the movie, when Edward and Bella slow-dance to Iron & Wine on prom night, they shouldn't kiss. "I thought that would be interesting," he says, "for a teen thing."
ON READING THE GOSSIP BLOGS:
...he reads about himself on the Internet. According to the Internet, there is another Robert Pattinson out there, living a very different life. A creature of the night, eager to sink his fangs into anything with boobs and a pulse. All bullshit, Pattinson says, but he reads the stories anyway, out of a kind of masochistic narcissism.
And he admits to reading it, which is the really weird part. He reads the gossip blogs and the Twilight fan fiction ("It's surprisingly hard-core. And very well written"). He knows what the fake Robert Pattinson said on the fake Robert Pattinson Facebook page. (The fake Robert Pattinson claimed to have nailed Kristen Stewart.)
ON HIS SUPPOSED GIRLFRIEND:
"There's literally not a single [true] story that could be written about me," he says. "I never do anything."
"There's this thing about my supposed girlfriend," he says. "There's this one girl who's consistently mentioned. It's like, "He's dating this Brazilian model."
"What's her name - Annelyse. I've never met her."
ON PROPOSING TO KRISTEN STEWART:
"I said that in some interview, as a joke -'Oh, I proposed to her multiple times.' And then it gets printed: 'On the set, he proposed multiple times.' "
(Later we ask Stewart about this: "He probably proposes to several girls a day," she says, bone-drily. "It's sort of his thing. He thinks it's cute.")
ON HIS RUMORED LOVE TRIANGLE WITH CAMILLA BELLE AND JOE JONAS OF THE JONAS BROTHERS:
"That's the funniest one," Pattinson says. "No. I mean, yeah, yeah, I'm friends with -Camilla."
He starts to explain how Belle, best known for playing a cavegirl in 10,000 BC, dated, or is supposed to have once dated - we have trouble following the thread - his friend, an actor named Tom Sturridge. So you're supposed to have stolen her from your best friend, we ask, before you stole her from the other dude?
"From the Jonas brother, yeah," Pattinson says. "I'm completely out of control. It's funny, though, because I met her at her place the other day, and there's a security gate, and even the security woman - I guess she knows that Camilla lives there, and she was like, 'Oooh!' "
So you're picking her up at her apartment?
"Like, once," he says. "But it's like - they always say 'A source said,' and I don't know a single person that could be a source."
But we've seen pictures. You guys were walking in Venice Beach, after lunch.
"That's the extent of it," Pattinson says. "I mean, Camilla's the nicest - she's a saint. And it's funny that she's being portrayed as this home wrecker. She's literally the most unlikely person to be a home wrecker. It's just ridiculous."
So it's a friendship, we ask him, that's been misinterpreted?
"I mean - yeah," he says. "I don't see people. I don't even have people's phone numbers. I almost don't want to have a girlfriend, in this environment."
ON ONE OF HIS EX-GIRLFRIENDS:
"I remember when I was a teenager thinking my girlfriend was cheating on me, and going around riling myself up. Pretending to cry. It was totally illegitimate - I actually didn't feel anything. I went to some pub and then went crying all the way home. And I got into my dog's bed. I was crying and holding on to the dog. I woke up in the morning, and the dog was looking at me like, 'You're a fake.' "
Was she actually cheating on you?
"No," Pattinson says, laughing. "I thought I'd seen her with another guy, but she wasn't even there. I spent three days apologizing to the dog."
ON HIS NEW PERIOD FILM LITTLE ASHES, IN WHICH HE PLAYS A YOUNG SALVADOR DALI:
"I thought I'd never get another acting job again," Pattinson says. "So I was like, 'Yeah - why not try to do something weird?' There's all these gay sex scenes. And y'know, I haven't even done a sex scene with a girl, in my whole career."
"And here I am, with Javier [Beltran], who plays Lorca, doing an extremely hard-core sex scene, where I have a nervous breakdown afterward. And because we're both straight, what we were doing seemed kind of ridiculous."
"Trying to do it doggie-style. Trying to have a nervous breakdown while doing it doggie-style. And it wasn't even a closed set. There were all these Spanish electricians giggling to themselves."
"In a lot of ways," Pattinson says, "I was kind of crossing lines of what I thought I was comfortable doing. I had to do all this naked stuff."
"I wanted to have a vacation in Spain," he says. "But it became just - really, really hard. I'd never done a job that was so hard."
"It's nothing," he says. "It would never have been released. I mean, that's a terrible thing to say, but this was a movie where we didn't even have stand-ins! We were scrambling, the entire time. We didn't even have trailers."
[Pattinson] says he hasn't seen any movie he's been in since the Potter movies - not even Twilight. He took his mom to the American Twilight premiere, squirmed through the first ten minutes, then bolted. "I went out and sat in the car," he says, "having a full-blown panic attack." Ten minutes in, he looked up and realized someone was videotaping him.
He doesn't want to watch himself on film because he's worried he'll look like a fraud. Even before he started acting, he says, "I was constantly thinking that I was faking my emotions. I was constantly attacking myself: You're a fake, you're a fraud."
ON FUTURE ACTING JOBS:
"I'm not massively concerned about doing lots of acting jobs," he says. "If it all just went, right now, I'd be like, 'All right. I don't really care.' That's probably a stupid thing to say. But I don't, really. I think it'd be much worse to do a load of stuff that's really bad. Because then you can't go into another career. If you've made an idiot out of yourself, you're never going to be taken seriously, as a lawyer or something, if you're, like, a joke actor. The only thing I want from anything is to not be embarrassed."
...ON ANY LAST COMMENTS:
"Okay," [Pattinson] says. Deep breath. "I fucked Joe Jonas."
"I love him."

By sheer coincidence, I had lunch today with Erik Feig, who's president of production at Summit and the man most involved with managing the hit series of films. ("New Moon," the second film in the series, begins production later this month with Chris Weitz at the helm.)
Feig was shocked to see the media reports saying Summit had hired Bayona, since -- ahem -- they're not true. "The 'Eclipse' directing job hasn't been offered to Juan Antonio or anyone else," he told me. "We've met with three or four talented filmmakers and we'll be meeting with three or four more other candidates before we make any decision. No one has been offered the job."Read more HERE.

Twilight Italia included this really great timeline with their email to CBA. This is a timeline of Volterra throughout the events of "New Moon". You can click on the picture above for a slightly larger version.
Twilight Italia has also posted some wonderful quotes that Stephenie Meyer said about Volterra, Italy (translated through Google):
"Volterra .. the square with clock tower of which I wrote about in the book,I had materialized on the screen ... If you think I still have the chills .. "
Stephenie Meyer. 19/05/2007
"I immediately went onto the website of that town, and got a shock. In fact, the square with the clock tower, which I described in my book, materialized itself on my screen! It was Piazza dei Priori! If I think about it, it gives me the chills...Thus I chose the title for that chapter was "Volterra" and I decided to launch the book in that town. In actual fact, to tell the truth, I was curious to see were the Voltura live, and so I decided to come here. What a marvelous place! "
Stephenie Meyer. 05/19/2007
Please go HERE to sign the petition to help get Summit to film in Volterra.
Twilight Italia has contacted us via email to request our help in their petition to get the filming of "New Moon" to Volterra, Italy.
We'd like to humbly ask for your support for an *important* initiative to help the City of Volterra host the filming of New Moon and to show you some great material we created.
Summit Entertainment confirmed that part of the movie filming will be done in Italy.However, the town of Volterra is seriously risking of not being consideredas the location for the filming.
This is why we wanted to show you the real Volterra.
We went there. We tracked the "real" steps of Alice, Bella and Edward inVolterra with beautiful photos and videos.
Here is one of the videos that they have made to show us Volterra:
You can go here to watch the videos.
Go here to see all that they have posted on New Moon and Volterra.
Make sure you sign the petition here to help them out! "New Moon" wouldn't be the same without the real Volterra, right?
BuddyTV has compiled a list of ten things that are imperative to the "New Moon" film and also discusses the challenges the movie faces with fans.
It's a common known fact that New Moon is the least favorite of the Twilight series for anyone on Team Edward, mainly due to the fact that Edward isn't in most of the book. Bella spends most of her time crying and depressed over his departure and that might lead to a generally boring or gloomy movie.
