Afternoon Delight: Amtrak wants you to Ride with Pride, Cat Cora has a new iPad app

Good afternoon and happy August!

According to Radar, out director/actress Jodie Foster wants to console Kristen Stewart in her time of need. An anonymous source (which could be my dog Taffy) said, “As soon as she heard the news, Jodie contacted Kristen to offer her support. They have been close friends since they starred opposite each other in the 2002 movie Panic Room, and Jodie is a mother-like figure to her. Jodie told Kristen to take no notice of the media bashing and said if she wanted to cry her heart out to her she’s always available.”
