Kristen Stewart is an actress who’s definitely at the top of her game.  She's starred in some of Hollywood’s biggest movies while being engaged to one of the biggest movie stars on the planet.  But even with all that, she still fell into the trap of ‘Dumb 22’.

During a visit to ‘The Wendy Williams Show’, actress Holly Robinson-Peete shared one of her memories of the late, great Whitney Houston.  Robinson-Peete had just come out of a bad relationship when Houston told her to not worry about it; she could just blame it [the relationship] on being ‘Dumb 25’.

That’s exactly how I feel about Kristen Stewart. 

Do you remember your twenties and some of the dumb stuffed that you did?  I’m not trying excuse Kristen’s behavior, but I can understand how she got caught up in an affair with an affluent man who happened to be twenty years her senior.

I’ve never been involved with a married man, but in my twenties I did get caught up with a man who was twenty years older than me.  The relationship was intoxicating.  He was this older man who made me feel like I was the best thing going.  He knew all the right things to say and all the right places to touch.

I was completely enthralled with him.  So much so that I started to be careless with things that normally I wasn’t so careless about.  I was neglecting my work and my friends.

Here I was an educated, 24 year old female who had everything going for me, but yet I still fell into the trap of ‘Dumb 24’.

This man had completely taken over my life.  Everything I did was based on what he wanted me to do.  The person that I was slowly began to morph into the person he wanted me to be.  I had lost my identity and everything I held sacred about me.

This is the type of stuff that happens when a person doesn’t completely know herself.

I don’t know if this is something that happened to Kristen, but I won’t rule it out.

The man she cheated with was a married man who also happened to be 20 years her senior.  You may not think that a twenty year age difference mean anything, but take it from someone whose been  there; it means a lot.

  1. I feel the same. Must be hard as well to not only make a stupid mistake but to have the whole world all over it! Can you imagine the pressure if it had been you? Celebrity does not make a person stable or wise, only experience can do that.
