Kristen Stewart issued a public apology to her boyfriend Robert Pattinson after she cheated on him with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders, but she didn't directly apologize to someone else who ended up being just as hurt because of her indiscretion - Rupert's wife Liberty Ross.
Here's how Kristen's apology reads: "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. 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."
The "everyone this has affected" could include Liberty and the two kids she has with Rupert, or Kristen could be referencing all of the devastated "Twilight" fans who feel so personally invested in Robsten.
If she was referencing Liberty, Kristen should have clarified her apology by acknowledging that she possibly played a part in ruining a marriage. Obviously Rupert is just as much to blame for Liberty's pain, but Kristen knew that she was getting involved with a married man with kids and should hold herself accountable for hurting the wife of that man. Perhaps she should have mentioned Liberty by name, especially since she worked with the actress on "Snow White and the Huntsman."
It's possible that Kristen didn't mention her name because she thought she was protecting Liberty from the press, but there's another reason she might have decided to leave Liberty out of her apology.
Kristen knows that many of the fans that have followed her three-year relationship with Rob are shocked, upset, and disgusted by her actions. Many of these fans went to watch K-Stew in "Snow White and the Huntsman," and they would probably go see her in just about any movie. Losing the massive support system she gained while working on "Twilight" could be devastating to her career, so she knows that she has to convince these Twihards that she's truly sorry for hurting Rob. She might think that her fans aren't as concerned with Liberty's feelings, or perhaps she fears her fans will see her as a home wrecker if she draws attention to Liberty.
Or maybe she just forgot that she hurt Rupert's wife and kids. According to one report, instead of publicly acknowledging Liberty, Kristen is going to write her a letter because "The fact that Liberty and Rupert have two kids has now dawned on her and she feels awful for what she did."
Kristen's fans might have a hard time deciding if she is really sorry for hurting Rob - she only apologized after photographic evidence of her dalliance surfaced, so it's impossible to tell if she's sorry for breaking Rob's heart or if she's just sorry for getting caught.
It doesn't look like Rob is accepting her apology - he's reportedly moved out of the L.A. love nest that he and Kristen share. And who can blame him if he decides to dump Kristen? Her career requires her to be away from him and around other men all the time, so it would be very difficult for Rob to trust her ever again. Sadly the decision of whether to stay or go will be even more difficult for Liberty since kids and divorce proceedings would be involved.
So do you think that Robsten is over, and should Kristen have publicly acknowledged Liberty?
