Kristen Stewart as ‘Trampire’ – Just Newest In Long Line Of “Life-“sucking B**ches

Kristen Stewart’s sex scandal didn’t inspire the word “trampire.” Bloodsucking babes have long been sinking their fangs into our collective jugular.

{FILE IMAGE VIA – Hindustani Times} The “Twilight” star’s affair with “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders has caused quite a stir though. Stewart, the newly dubbed “trampire,” has been splashed all over tabloids like the New York Daily News.

Even comic Will Ferrell, who’s out promoting a new movie, doesn’t want to talk about anything else.

“I don’t care what’s going on in Syria. This is what we need to talk about,” Ferrell said, according to

Sites like New York City’s Gothamist are treating “trampire” like a new term, but it was used as far back as 1987 — as the title for a porn film.

The philosophy behind “trampire” may be as old as the hills, according to New Orleans-based vampire researcher Kalila Smith.

“The first vampire may have actually been female,” Smith indicated. “She was named Lilith and, according to the Hebrews, she was Adam’s first wife, but was banished from the Garden of Eden because she refused to be subservient to him, so she was cast out and replaced with Eve.”

Smith said Lilith “became this bloodthirsty demon who roamed the Earth feeding on the offspring of Adam.”

The most famous or infamous female vampire, Elizabet Bathory of Hungary, who lived around the 16th century, was certainly reported to have been insatiable, but wasn’t known at all for infidelity,” Garza said.

It seems more appropriate to me in this case,” Garza adds, “to eliminate the vampire reference entirely and simply let the term rest attramp.'”
