Save The Book Babe Rocked!

I'm back from the fabulous Project Book Babe event! It was amazing.

OME! I can't believe I got to meet Be My Escape & Pel from the Twilight Lexicon. I was nervous so I could only say like 2 words to them.

Here is the awesome Kim (in green) from the CBA teen forum. She was in the really good seats. Way to go Kim! Here's what Kim had to say about the night:

"It was so great just being in the same room as her (SM). I was astonished by the auction but at least it went to a good cause.. I met the lady i was sitting next to while waiting in line i got there around 11-12pm. The tickets were expensive but they counted as part of my b-day present. After the event when we got our goody bags i got the hardcover breaking dawn which was the last book i needed so i was really excited. Although i was kinda bummed because the girls next to me went up and got pics with Stephenie so we were following behind them and Shannon Hale told her they couldnt do anymore photos or autographs. I want to like actually meet her SOOOOOOO bad. But i did get a picture with Pel from the Twilight Lexicon....lol."

Then it was time to begin! First we had a touching message delivered by the Book Babe, Faith Hochhalter. Then we heard from two great musical acts, Adam Krump & the Adam Watts Band.

Next was the incredible panel discussion:

The amazing authors: Chris Gall is on the far left (his sign is cut off), P. J. Haarsma, Shannon Hale, J. S. Lewis, Dean Lorey, Stephenie Meyer, Brandon Mull, James A. Owen, Janette Rallison, & Laini Taylor.

The panel discussion was lively and very, very funny. Here is a short recap from my memory so it's not exact. Some of the questions were: What were you like at age 14? (Stephenie Meyer said she was boring & she read a lot.) How does you imagination work? Is writing hard work or is it recreation for you? (SM said she likes writing way more then editing.) When did you first call yourself a writer? (SM said she still has trouble thinking of herself as a writer & it's been six years.)

Then it was time for the raffle & auction. Here is what things went for in the auction:

Stephenie Meyer's Eclipse prom dress: $5500 (Congratulations to Alison from Twifans!)
Advanced Readers Copy of Twilight: $1500
Epilogue to Forever Dawn: $ 5100
Eclipse Draft: $2600
The Host Draft: $1100
Lunch with Stephenie Meyer: $6500 each (there was only supposed to be one lunch but because Stephenie is the BOMB she gave the 2 people who were in a bidding war each a lunch.)
The Host Skateboard: $ 1500

Thanks to everyone who put this event together. You all did a wonderful job! It looks like a lot of money was raised for a great cause.

Catherine Thanks Fans Director's Notebook #1

From Entertainment Weekly:


Find more videos like this on Catherine Hardwicke


Dear Twilight fans,

I wanted to send out a note of thanks to all of you. I recently found out that my book, Twilight: Director's Notebook, will debut at #1 on this Sunday's New York Times bestseller list. I am stunned. Throughout this entire process, from pre-production on the film, to the premieres, to my book events, I have always been overwhelmed by the support the Twilight fans have had for me, the movie and now my book. I wanted to give the fans, as well as aspiring filmmakers, a closer look at how we made the movie and I hope you enjoyed entering my world of making films as much as I have had in being part of the Twilight world.

Twilight Weekend Recap

Robert Pattinson Makes Top 17 Hottest Guys In Hollywood List :
Because a top 20 list is SO last year.


Bobby Long's New Single Now Available On Itunes :

Don't you feel guilty for downloading it now? Here's my logic: Bobby Long and Rob are friends. They have even shared clothes. So, if you support Bobby, then you are also supporting Rob and possibly clothing the boy. Who wouldn't want to say "I bought Rob that shirt"?

Now, go buy the single.

CBA's Interview With Bronzehairedgirl620: Part One & Part Two

Newest Cast Member For 'New Moon':

No, it's not Johnny Depp. We promise you. Stop looking at Johnny, look behind him. It's Jamie Campbell-Bower, the one in the background, and he's been cast as Caius. Now you can go back to looking at Johnny Depp.

("Joaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanna")


The Good Doctor Is Going Home : Peter Fascinelli has confirmed appearances at the London Film and Comic Con as well as Atlanta's Dragon Con. Give Carlisle a good homecoming, ladies!

Robert Pattinson Does Not Need A Matchmaker



Tonight in the CBA Adult forum Chat we were discussing a segment on Extra TV with the Millionaire Matchmaker & she picked Misha Barton for Rob. Seriously. Watch it HERE.

Well it reminded me of this video from from Clevver TV I saw on ROBsessed via The Twilight Times. What do you guys think about all this matchmaking? The general consensus in the forum was, "I think they meant to say _____." *fill in the blank with your name* LOL!

Thanks Checkmate for getting the discussion rolling!

Washington Paper To Be A Prop In 'New Moon'


A local Washington classifieds paper, The Little Nickel, has been contacted by the production team from 'New Moon' to have copies used in the film. An employee from the paper reports:

I just found out that they called asking for more papers today about 6 bundles of this week's paper. That's way over 240 papers for the rack they will be using in a scene tomorrow.

The scene I heard it will be used for is the 'movie theater' scene. We all know what scene that is, where Bella tries to organize a group outing to the movies, and slowly couple by couple people start to flake out and all that's left is Bella, Jacob and Mike!

A Wolf And Vamp Sighting In Vancouver Yesterday


New Moon's Taylor Lautner & Edi Gathegi strolling along after dinner yesterday in Vancouver. According to Lainey Gossip both Taylor & Edi were filming this week. She also has this to say concerning a Taylor/KStew hook-up:

"And if you've been reading in a bottom feeding rag that Kristen and Taylor are flirting on set, or that something romantic is going on... total bullsh-t. Ridiculous.

Kristen's boyfriend Michael Angarano is still in town. They were together yesterday when her day was over."

Does anyone else think of the scene in Eclipse where Laurent meets the wolf pack when they look at these pics?

Twilight Saga TV Series Coming Soon?



No, this is not about the Philippino TV show from a few months ago. Sue Thurman, AZ Family Examiner from The Examiner.com has an intriguing article questioning if there is a plan to bring the Twilight Saga to TV & how well it would do. She looks at Dark Shadows, the popular 1960's TV series about vampire Barnabas Collins and asks if a Twilight TV series could be as successful. She also mentions the rumor about Johnny Depp playing Barnabas Collins in a Dark Shadows movie & anything with both Edward Cullen & Johnny Depp is a must read. Read more HERE.

Want To Be Bitten By Robert Pattinson??


Here is your chance to be bitten by Rob (almost) if you live in London.

On Monday, April 6th in HMV's Oxford Circus (150, Oxford Street) flagship store, a "steel version of Mr P's teeth will be 'biting' into the sleeves of Twilight DVDs." Just like the above picture shows. A machine people, a machine with fake Rob teeth.

I don't even know what to say. The article about this says "almost as good as the real thing"...bwhahaha. At first I was wondering if it was an April Fools joke but it's real.

All The Cullen Boys Together! Oh The Joy!


Great was my happiness when I got home from work today & saw these on Lainey Gossip! Can you imagine such an encounter? What lucky, lucky ladies. Robert Pattinson, Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone & Peter Facinelli all together in Vancouver. Jody, the fan who sent these in wrote:

My girlfriend and I were lucky enough to chill with some "vampires" a couple of weeks ago. The guys were very friendly and flirty (especially the guy that plays Emmett) and quite possibly drunk. Seriously cool guys.

I'm surprised it took so long for these to surface.

Could There Be A Twilight Religion?

The Examiner's Twilight Examiner, Amanda Bell, has written an article discussing the Twilight "religion" that has come about: Cullenism. The idea stems from the theory that there is spirituality in the series based on the morals that the Cullens possess and that if one is 'good' then they will be with the Cullens in the end.

These Cullenists believe "[j]ust like any other religion," that there is some spirituality to be had in the Twilight series, forming rules and principles upon which to base their tenets. Their creed, say the Cullenists, includes a base set of beliefs that "Edward and the rest of the Twilight characters are real," that "[t]he Twilight series should be worshipped," and that "[i]f you are good in life, you will be bless[ed] with eternity with the Cullens." Other than that, say the Cullenists, there "is not a limit to what you can believe in when it comes to the Cullenism religion . . . we will accept any other Cullenism beliefs you may have." Cullenists are also expected to read some of the books on a daily basis, "like the Bible" and make a pilgrimage to Forks.

What do you think about all of this? I'll give you a topic: Edward Cullen. Spirituality. Discuss!

Jackson Rathbone Filming In Pa Starting Today?





The Reading Eagle reports that M Night Shyamalan has begun filming "The Last Airbender" today in Reading, Pa, just west of his hometown of Philadelphia. The cast and crew have just returned from filming in Greenland.

Certainly early Thursday atop Mount Penn, the setting was perfectly suited for the Shyamalan films we have come to know, pictures such as "The Sixth Sense, "Unbreakable," "The Village" and "Signs." Mid-morning fog snaked across the cleared grounds below the parking observatory, partially obscuring what was meant to represent the rocky remains of a village destroyed by the evil Fire nation. The fog swirled around the Pagoda, clutching at its golden gargoyles, conjuring an eerie sense of dread and melancholy.


There is no word on whether or not Jackson is onset today as he is going between filming of "The Last Airbender" and "New Moon". Jackson plays the character of Sokka, pictured above.

Kellan Lutz' Flaunt Magazine Shoot Still Making News

We posted about it last week & Kellan's scorching HOT photoshoot for Flaunt Magazine is still making headlines. Can you blame it?



Here's what AceShowBiz had to say today:

Another "Twilight" hunk, Kellan Lutz, has become talk of the town as his shirtless pictures for Flaunt Magazine have been leaked. While it is not known on which edition of the print media his snaps will be featured, his sexy photos have been posted all over the Internet.

Several of his pictures made public by Celebrity Mania show him flaunting his six-pack stomach for the camera. He is seen displaying quite serious faces in all the shots. No record if the actor who plays the role of Emmet Cullen in the hit vampire drama movie spills the bean to Flaunt Magazine the secret to his muscular body.

Read more HERE & see all the pictures HERE.

CBA is on "drool alert" for the edition of Flaunt that these pics will be in, as soon as we hear we'll let you know.

Robert Pattinson Caught In The Act


Rob is mentioned on People.com's feature "Caught in the Act":

Robert Pattinson, mingling in the VIP room at a party following the Juno Awards (the Canadian Grammys) at Vancouver's Velvet Room inside the Opus Hotel. The Twilight star arrived after the Universal Music bash was in full swing, then grabbed a martini and some food – much to the delight of many of the waitresses working the soiree. According to a source, several servers giddily greeted the actor, who was "gracious and really enjoying himself."

What I think is great is Leonardo DiCaprio & Scarlett Johansson are also mentioned but Rob gets top billing & only his picture is shown.
