ROBERT PATTINSON'S HEARTBREAK TOUR
Scandal? What scandal? In his first public appearances since his then girlfriend Kristen Stewart's make-out session with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, Robert Pattinson put on a brave face, offering little sign that he had been quietly nursing a broken heart for the last three weeks. "He was upbeat and went right to his fans," an observer says of Pattinson at the Aug. 13 premiere of his new film Cosmopolis. Earlier in the day, at a taping of The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart consoled Pattinson, 26, with Ben & Jerry's ice cream, so the two could talk like "just a couple of gals." When Stewart noted that breakups can feel like the end of the world, Pattinson responded tersely, "It is." (That exchange was later edited out of the broadcast.)
His erstwhile girlfriend can relate. According to sources, the actress, 22, is inconsolable. "She and Rob were inseparable, a team, and nobody else mattered," says a Twilight source. "Now she feels like she has nothing." Pattinson, though, has friends and work to focus on. "He's doing much better now," says a source close to the actor, who hit an afterparty at PH-D Rooftop Lounge. "He got the wind knocked out of his sails, but he's healing."
HER REVENGE WARDROBE
Rupert Sanders's wife of seven years still hasn't made up her mind about filing for divorce, but her post-scandal wardrobe sends a clear message: Eat your heart out. While the British model and actress, 33, "is focused on her kids returning to school in the next few weeks," says a source, she's been snapped in L.A. wearing body-hugging high fashion with hard-edged details. "She's feeling strong," the source adds.

THE THINGS HE DOES FOR LOVE

The fashion-forward pair often coordinate their clothes; he even picks out her garments. "He's like, 'Wear this, wear this,' and he puts outfits together," Kardashian has said.
PENS A LOVE SONG
"I wrote the song 'Perfect B----' for Kim," he tweeted after previewing music on Aug. 4. And it's romantic, claims the guy who (as recently reported by New York magazine) says "I love you" first when ending calls with his honey.

TAYLOR SWIFT HONEY, I'M HOME
NOT ONLY IS THE SINGER DATING A KENNEDY, BUT SOURCES SAY SHE IS PURCHASING A HOUSE ON HIS FAMILY'S COMPOUND
Seven bedrooms. Five bathrooms. Water views. And your new boyfriend—and his grandmother—as your neighbors. What more could Taylor Swift want from a $4.9 million, 1928 beachfront mansion on the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port? According to sources, the singer, 22, is purchasing the home after several sailing- and scoops-filled weekends with her boyfriend, Conor, 18. On a recent trip to Four Seas Ice Cream in Centerville, Mass., the two were spotted holding hands and kissing. "She had her arms around Conor and was being very cutesy and flirty," says an observer. "Very touchy-feely." (That night, Swift treated Conor and his pals to $35 worth of treats.) On Aug. 9 the pair were in Nashville, where they had dinner at Edley's Bar-B-Que and then visited a nearby park, where they were spotted laughing and playing, "acting like kids," says an eyewitness. (Swift even climbed the jungle gym.) In Conor, the 5'11" singer has found more than just a summer playmate. Notes one of her friends: "Not only is he attractive, but he's taller than she is-which is a plus!"
A FAN OF THE CLAN
Already pals with Conor's grandma Ethel and aunt Rory, Swift was spotted with his dad, RFK Jr., in Hyannis Aug. 12.
HER NEW HOUSE
The Colonial-style mansion on a private road boasts pine floors and soaring windows, and is "in a beautiful location," says a local.
IT'S TIME TO PLAY NAME THAT EX!
Is Swift's feisty new single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," about Jake Gyllenhaal, 31? The song contains lyrics about a guy who finds "peace of mind/With some indie record that's much cooler than mine." The actor is a fan of Mumford & Sons, Temper Trap and The Civil Wars.
HER NEW GUY
"He's more sophisticated than most 18-year-olds," says a friend of Conor (with Swift after a sailboat ride on July 28).
