Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner may not have a real-life love triangle going on, unlike a few other stars of the moment (ahem Kim Kardashian and Rihanna), but they do win some sort of prize for one of the hottest fiction romance contests, what with The Twilight Saga's enduring competition between Team Edward and Team Jacob. However, now that there is a round of new triangles taking the stage, with brand-new teams with which to side, do Pattinson, Stewart and Lautner still hold the prize for the best love mess?
Hollywood Life has also taken notice of the crush of relationship rivalries and passionate battles burning up the celebrity romance scene. Confirming that truth is stranger (and more scandalous) than fiction, Rihanna, Chris Brown and his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, have been quite the threesome, taking Twitter by storm with their rivalry. From sexy tweeted photos to name-calling and other forms of personal insults, RiRi and Tran have pulled out all the stops as they seemingly vie for Brown's attention.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have also shown that reality-TV romance can be stranger and certainly more messy than fiction. After televising a fast-track romance, engagement and over-the-top wedding, their divorce papers were flying after a mere 72-day marriage. Of course, the new angle now is Kanye West, Kardashian's boy of the moment, along with rumors that sparks have been flying between the two for eight years.
Of course, it's not only Kardashian-Humphries-West and Rihanna-Brown-Tran that are causing a scene. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have another set of hot, vampy stars edging in with the hit CW show, The Vampire Diaries, and the trio that is Stefan (Paul Wesley), Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder). Hollywood Life has even more steamy and sometimes bitter love fictional triangles, too, including those of The Hunger Games and Gossip Girl.
Oh, what a tangled web is weavedÂ—in real-life, reality show life and fiction!
