Celebrity Scoops…updated 7.26.12
Kristen Stewart, 22, issued a public apology for her fling with “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders, 41, and hurting her beau Robert Pattinson of three years. “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected,” she said in a statement. “This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.” How about that casting couch???

Rack up another accident for Lindsay Lohan! After shopping and getting behind the wheel of her black Porsche Panamera, the actress tapped the back of a silver Mustang – that was stopped at a light.

Breaking her silence over recent drama, Katherine Jackson did an interview with “ABC News” yesterday and said she wasn’t kidnapped. “I am here today to let everybody know that I am good and fine. My children would never do anything to me like that.” As for why she left Michael’s three children at home with no guardian she replied, “One reason I didn’t call is I just gave up my phone and I didn’t want to have any phone calls while I was here.” She then continued, “I am devastated that while I’ve been away, my grandchildren have been taken from me.” That family needs an intervention…with some serious sage waving around the house!
Maria Menounos is getting her own show on Oxygen this fall. The network said the 10-episode docu-series will review scenes from her on “Dancing With the Stars,” her WWE wrestling stint and hosting “Extra.” It will also offer glimpses of her “not so Hollywood home life living with her longtime boyfriend and strict Greek immigrant parents who demand marriage and children,” according to network execs. Seriously? Who cares?
