If Twilight-inspired greeting cards and clothing wasn’t enough to satisfy fan-pires’ desires, now they can add Edward Cullen and Bella Swan Barbie Dolls to their collections! As a tribute to the on-screen lovers, Barbie has created a set of dolls modeled after Robert Pattinson’s Edward Cullen and Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan. Featuring Robert’s strong jaw line and vampire-glow and Kristen’s long brunette hair and innocent face, the dolls are almost an exact replica of the stars. Looks like Bella’s wish for immortality is finally coming true! The Twilight Barbies, $25 each, will be available starting November 1, 2009 — just in time for the release of New Moon — at Walmart, Walmart.com and barbiecollector.com. Mark your calendars! "
Ok, so this seems to anti Twilight to me.
Bella is supposed to be awkward and clumsy- no where near perfect...as Barbie is. Hey, Edward could have fallen in love with Tayna or Rosalie if he was searching for seamless beauty, but he wasn't. I don't think I'll be buying this for my daughter and I think Mattel should read the books and give us "reality". Well, as much "reality" as you can from a fictional teenage vampire romance! lol
So now...I shared the new New Moon preview with my sweet, tolerant hubby the other day. Now remember, he hasn't read any of the books, but has watched Twilight with me a ton. He likes it :) I kinda filled him in on some upcoming events in the next books, and after seeing the new Meet Jacob Black trailer- he professes that he is no doubt Team Jacob! What?! I am undoubtedly Team Edward, lol. But this is no surprise really...just humorous. I still love him ;)
No details have been released, oh but when they are....this TwiMom will be ready! Internet rumors are swirling around TwiCon 2010 to be held in Las Vegas & Toronto. A very reliable source told me that there was chatter about it in Dallas at TwiCon a couple weeks ago.
My hubby, daughter and I are really looking forward to going. Ok, so my sweet husband won't attend the convention with us girls, but he will be happy to play in Vegas while we swim in all things Twilight. A fellow Twilight mom/daughter & hubby team are planning the trip with us.
So, I'm starting the saving right now and plan on having a couple garage sales to fund my trip too! I feel a little weird about it, (it's like really jumping off the deep end for me)but I know I am in good company ;)
'Twilight's Peter Facinelli Muscles Up for 'Eclipse'
Thanks Entertainment Tonight! "When Peter Facinelli starts rehearsals for 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,' he and Robert Pattinson and the rest of the gang will be spending a whole week on fight training.
"What happens in 'Eclipse' is Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard) comes back and she builds an army of new-born vampires, which are basically new-bitten vampires that are blood-crazed," Peter tells ET. "She is trying to get this army to come after us so she can get to Bella (Kristen Stewart), so we team up with the werewolves to attack these newly bitten vampires."
Peter is leaving for rehearsals for the new movie today, and he says that there are two weeks of rehearsals before the fight training, so his wife Jennie Garth and his girls will probably come up to visit.
"I try not to go more than two weeks without seeing the kids," he says. "That is my general rule. After two weeks, it gets to be too long and the kids are, 'Who are you?' I am on 'Eclipse' for three months. I will go back and forth. I am going to have them come up for the fight training so they can see what dad does."
The 35-year-old actor says he considers the 'Twilight' cast his second family: "We are really like a family off and on set. I love each and every one of the cast members like they are my kids."
As soon as 'Eclipse' wraps, Peter will start shooting the second season of his Showtime series, "Nurse Jackie."
"What is fun for me is to play two characters that have the same occupation, but they are 180 degrees apart," he tells ET." Eclipse and new Moon Movie News
