The movie's two leads may not be on speaking terms, but that won't stop the Breaking Dawn Part 2 promotional train for taking off as scheduled.

Amid questions over how the Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart saga will affect marking - she cheated on him with Rupert Sanders; he's gone into hiding and is considered a total mess - a spokesperson for Summit Entertainment has taken the unusual step of issuing a press release.

  • Robert Pattinson as Edward
  • Kristen Stewart as Bella

Says Nancy Kirkpatrick to Entertainment Weekly:

“While it is studio policy not to comment on the personal lives of actors, Summit is moving full steam ahead and looking forward to this November’s opening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.  We are confident that the film delivers amazing entertainment for our passionate fans and general audience alike.”

Earlier this week, actress Christian Serratos said she can't imagine the Robsten drama affects the film's box office haul, but we're not so sure.

Will you go see Breaking Dawn Part 2 despite this scandal?

Lauren Kornacki, a 22-year-old Virginia woman, is being hailed as a hero, even a real-life Superman. Or Superwoman, to be more accurate.

It may not be far off. She reportedly lifted a car off her dad, who had been crushed while working under it, and performed CPR to save him.

Alec Kornacki was in the family garage working on a car when a jack holding it up slipped, according to Kristen Kornacki, Lauren's sister.

Lauren Kornacki found her father pinned to the ground, unresponsive.

"She proceeded to lift up the car, pull him out and then give him CPR," said Kristen Kornacki of Lauren, who is trained as a lifeguard.

"It flashed like, oh my God, I'm going to lose my dad," she told the affiliate. "I just knew I had to get his heart beating again."

She did. Despite some broken ribs, Alec Kornacki survived and is being treated at Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center.

According to his Kristen, Alec Kornacki is "healing fantastically."

"He is walking and talking and laughing and joking. He's feeling pretty good overall," she said. "He's Superman, that's for sure."

When was the last time you saw Victoria Beckham smile?

Exactly. But she isn't the grump some people make her out to be, she notes in the new issue of Glamour. So why doesn't she smile, like, ever?

"I actually used to smile a lot in pictures. I think I stopped smiling when I got into fashion," the former Spice Girl laughs. "Fashion stole my smile!"

"I've created this person. And I'm not saying that person's not me, but I wouldn't say that's the whole me. It's ... an armor that goes up."

One thing that never fails to make Victoria smile, however, is David Beckham.

The soccer star, 37, and their four children: Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 9, Cruz, 7, and Harper, 1, are her top priority, and the loves of her life.

You might even catch her smiling about it, behind closed doors at least.

Family is Victoria's top priority, and in the next five years, "I'd just like everybody to be healthy and happy," she muses.

"I'd like to be growing business at a steady pace, making more women feel empowered, beautiful and confident. And I'd never say never about another baby. It's a juggling act - career, family, a husband who's busy. But never say never!"

This could make family dinners a tad awkward.

Mark Zuckerberg's sister, Arielle, is now a Google employee, following the search engine giant's acquisition of Wildfire Interactive this week.

Arielle's blog lists her occupation as the junior product manager for the social media marketing firm. Here's a photo of Zuckerberg's sister:

Arielle previously offered constructive criticism of her brother's company's site, which just went public this summer, and its overhaul last fall.

Arielle's not the only Zuckerberg sibling in the business, either. Randi Zuckerberg, the former director of marketing for Facebook, left last August.

Randi Zuckerberg is now an executive producer for Silicon Valley, a Bravo show that is controversially bringing Hollywood voyeurism to tech.

Randi tweeted about Arielle's move on Tuesday, teasing Mark a bit in the process. The Zuckerberg siblings also have another sister, Donna.

Selena Gomez has a new hairstyle, and also a new feature in the September issue of Teen Vogue.

Interviewed by that publication, the adorable 20-year girlfriend of Justin Bieber says she's hoping to sign on for more mature movie roles, while she dreams about collaborating musically with a certain, multi-talented crooner/actor.

HINT: It's not Bieber...

Selena Gomez Relaxes

On future acting gigs: Being part of the Disney Channel was such a blessing, and I'm super happy with what my show accomplished, but acting is something I would like to take on more seriously. I don't necessarily feel accomplished. I want to create a whole different persona when it comes to acting.

On her next album: It's going to be different - a little older but still really fun.

On her fantasy music collaborator: Who I would die to work with, but I don't think he ever would - I don't even think he's doing music anymore - is Justin Timberlake. Just 'cause I love his music sooo much.

On dating The Biebs: It's really fun. I'm lucky. I'm 20. I don't take anything in my personal life too seriously. I have great friends and a solid group of people I love. I feel like everything else will come organically

An unofficial Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day brought hundreds of thousands of fast food lovers out to the support the embattled restaurant, which has endured serious criticism resulting from its ownership's gay marriage stance.

Supporters converged on its locations on Wednesday after former GOP presidential hopeful and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee declared it to be Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day called on people to show support a great business.

Tea Party groups, conservative activists and countless ordinary patrons flocked to the chain, which has been under fire since chief executive Dan Cathy recently stated that he and his company were against gay marriage.

The comments drew strong reactions, with customers pledging to boycott the chain and some mayors - most notably Boston's Tom Menino and Chicago's Rahm Emanuel - proclaiming they would not allow Chick-fil-A in their cities.

Interestingly, many came out to support the restaurant and Cathy's religious beliefs, even if they say they are less than religious themselves.

"I'm not getting myself involved in the issue of gay marriage and all that, I'm not getting involved in a religious debate," Gwilym McGrew said.

"I'm getting involved in the government and the media basically putting their thumb on a businessperson for his religious beliefs."

Casper Smart frequent exotic massage parlors and/or is a homosexual seeking fast and easy one-night stands.

So claim a pair of tabloid cover stories this week, both of which have prompted Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend to threaten lawsuits against the publications behind them.

  • Jennifer Lopez Betrayed!
  • Casper Smart Gay Allegations

The first, from In Touch, quotes a couple of employees at a massage parlor in New York City who allege Smart has stopped by for appointments there twice in the last month.

Star, meanwhile, asserts that the dancer was caught at a peep show in the Big Apple last month, somewhere that's a "well-known cruising spot for gay men looking for instant hookups."

According to TMZ, the couple's attorneys, Shawn Holley and Howard Weitzman, have sent letters to both magazine warning that the "reports" are "false, malicious and defamatory" and will cause "immense damage" to Jennifer and Casper's careers and reputations. They pair will follow up with legal action unless retractions are printed.

No response so far from In Touch or Star.

Jermaine Jackson, one of the main players in the family revolt against the Michael Jackson Estate, has officially defected from the rebellion ... mostly.

While he has "deep reservations" about their conduct, Jermaine is bowing out of official efforts to challenge the power of his late brother's executors.

"I rescind my signature from the letter which was sent to the Estate, and which should never have gone public," Jermaine Tweeted Wednesday.

"I still hold deep reservations about many issues involving the Estate," he adds.

"I will continue to bring scrutiny and a resolute voice wherever we have great cause for concern. But the way to address such matters is through the proper channels and via a private dialogue, not public conflict."

"In this spirit, I offer this statement by way of extending an olive-branch."

That would be long overdue, following their apparent coup attempt to wrest guardianship of Michael's kids away from their grandmother and guardian.
