Lets Talk Brangelina


This weekend I thought the world must have ended. I received about 100 e-mails from people all wanting to talk about Brangelina and the story that appeared in News Of The World yesterday. In case you haven't read the story, you can click here.

In case you don't want to or can't read it, the story says that Angelina Jolie visited a divorce attorney and had an agreement drawn up which divides the fortune and the kids. Apparently Brad also signed the document. Needless to say, both reps say the story is crap. I really, really hope they don't split. Not only for the sake of the kids, but think about how many cover stories are going to have Jen & Brad getting back together again. It would drive me mad.

I blame the beard. Who could look at that on a full time basis?

equinox said...

It sounded like bullshit when I first read it, and it sounds even more so now.

Ms Cool said...

Where there is smoke, there is fire.

I do feel for the little kids. I hope Angie isn't on heroin as the rumors have it.

Harriet Hellfire said...

It wouldn't surprise me if it were true.

ballyhoo. said...

wouldn't surprise me if it were true, wouldn't surprise me if it's b.s.

i heard they were predicted to break up on dec. 21, 2012?

Monty said...

Exactly, we get enough of Aniston('s Revenge Legs/Body!) as it is.

Sylvia said...

I am tired of the both of them. Also I have never considered her a lady. She will always be trash.

@Ms Cool said...Where there is smoke, there is fire.

..

My thoughts exactly.

Sporky said...

Not sure yet...

Um. Who cares if they split or not? The magazines are pretty much dominated by Jolie, Pitt, and Aniston already as things are. It's always the same characters, just the scene that changes.

I could not care less about any of them- they are all self-absorbed and overrated, and virtually crammed down the throats of everyone already. Yeah yeah, spare me the "but they are so charitable" bullshit. So are loads of other people, people who don't feel the need to let the whole world know about their good deeds.

"think about how many cover stories are going to have Jen & Brad getting back together again. It would drive me mad."

This is why I come back again and again. Brilliant :D

Oh and I care not one jot for either of them apart or together. It still warps my mind I had a poster of him in '94 on my bedroom wall.

jax said...

it's probably crap but...Brad n jen did the same thing before he left her ass. deny deny deny. a week later ,a joint press release.

Carrie L. said...

I agree with Ms Cool - where there is smoke, there is fire. There have always been rumors, but this time I think there is some truth behind it.

It really is a shame about the kids, but hopefully their parents will do their best to love them and raise them well.

Tenley said...

Jax, and not only that, Brangelina denied denied denied rumours of an affair on Mr. and Mrs. Smith for, well, basically the whole first five years didn't they?

maryja said...

The ONLY reason I would hope it would be true is that Aniston would have to find a new narrative to prop up her sagging relevance. I truly doubt Pitt is going back to her.

Otherwise, I hope Brangelina stick together for a long time if only to give a big f-you to the haters.

mikey said...

I can't stand either one of them anymore and I used to like both of them at one time.

What's the deal with the twins? Why don't we see them out and about with the other kids?

Pookie said...

ditto, Ms. Cool.

besides, be it now or in the future, it'll end how it started. it always does.

not on my dollar said...

As I stated in another thread I believe it THIS TIME.

Do I want them to breakup? Yes if it will turn them back to mere mortals like everyone else. As it stands there are too many people who've gone fanatic over them "as a couple".

I'm sick of the "Brang watch" or anybody else that society obsessed over.

Tenley said...

Ha MaryJa! lol That would be pretty funny -- what is Jennifer Aniston going to do when Brad doesn't go back to her and she can't blame anyone else ???

linnea said...

Yeah Tenley, that would be interesting to see... how she gonna spin that?

shazzzba said...

IT DIDN'T RING TRUE...THEY DON'T OWN THE HOUSE IN FRANCE OR LONG ISLAND...RENTALS...THE INFO WAS BOGUS
SO THE WHOLE REPORT PROBABLY IS ALSO...
HOWEVER WILL THEY BREAKUP...OH YEAH IT'S COMING...

palealebrew10 said...

I'm on board with the where theres smoke theres fire thing. I highly doubt these two would still be together if they didn't have kids together.

Not looking forward to the Jen and Brad stories which will inevitably play out and, gosh, so conveniently as Jen's movie comes out.

I can't lie, I really want to know who Brad publicly dates next. Oh the frickin possibilities. How about Manslinger Hudson..or Reese witherspoon? Either way someone who can't weigh more than 100 lbs soaking wet.

RocketQueen said...

Ha! Enty, that's the first thing I thought, too. "Oh dear, if this is true there's going to be UNENDING stories about Brad/Jen"

I think the accepted belief about Angelina is that she takes/uses methadone.

I for one, don't want to see them split. They seem(ed) genuinely in love.

jax said...

so Kate Bosworth?

nancer said...

how could this possibly increase the number of articles about brad/jen getting back together??? shit, that's ALL i see at the check-out stand, and has been for the last 5 years!

i'm a FIRM believer in 'where there's smoke, there's fire.' these rumors have been very persistent. i think there's definitely something afoot here.

Amanda said...

This time I think it's true!!

I hope Brad goes back to Jen - he never should have dumped her in the first place to go out with that skank. He got what he deserved, but I still think he belongs with Jen and will end up with her when all is said and done.

gauchogirl said...

I think the story is bullshit. Why would they need a divorce attorney? They aren't even legally married.

linnea said...

my fav comment on gawker re: this story went something like

so, they met and they basically made a pre-nup? what if the tipsters got it all wrong and they are in fact getting married?

caydian said...

I hope Jen won't go near him.

Whatever happened in BP/JA's marriage is history but Angie didn't need to brag about what they did while BP/JA were still married. Brad's no better; he's trashy & Angie emasculated him. I wouldn't touch anything that Billy Bob Thornton touched but Brad just dove right in. Bleah

Moriah said...

Sadly, I do not care about these 2 people.

lutefisk said...

I'm waiting for the Jen/Angie hook up stories to start.

Lauren said...

Amanda and Sylvia took the words outta my mouth! Yeah girls!

SFG said...

I'm in the minority but I love them together. I hope they aren't breaking up. I can't stand Maniston and wouldn't want her to have the satisfaction.

linnea said...

Do you really think you are in the minority? Maybe, but if I had to pick sides in this I think AJ kicks a lot more a** that JA does

RocketQueen said...

I'm with you, Linnea. Wouldn't that be funny if they're actually getting married?
And please...to the people who want to see Brad and Jen together again, I just want to laugh. That'll never happen.

Tranquil Moonlight said...

Personally, I'd enjoy it if they weren't together any longer. I haven't believed the 'Saint Angie' stories for one second (plus I just watched 'Changeling' yesterday and thought she was horrible) and I haven't felt as though Brad is half the actor everyone seems to think he is, for the better part of the last five years. The only reason they get as much press as they do is because they're together and have so many kids. As for Jennifer, I happen to be a fan of hers, and can honestly say I do not understand those people that claim she uses Brad as a way to stay in the press. Admittedly I do not read every single article or interview she does, but I have never heard her say anything about the situation without having been asked by the interviewer first. What is she supposed to do? Not answer? If she chose not to answer everyone would simply say she's still too emotional about it, and claim THAT'S an attempt at publicity. I actually think it's rather insulting that everyone insinuates she wouldn't have any sort of career if not for her marriage to Brad. I'm quite certain she doesn't get her roles in movies because of Brad, and if she had, she wouldn't continue to get them. If you can show me something that she's said, that she initiated on her own, and not merely an answer to a question, go for it, but I doubt I'll ever understand the utter hatred some people seem to have for her.

/rant.

Cheryl said...

Even if it's true, I refuse to use News of the World as my source.

Paisley said...

Every month since they first got together, at least one magazine has reported that they're breaking up. With this couple, I'll believe it only when they send out a press release.

miss said...

The only movies I like Brad in were Snatch and Thelma and Louis. Besides that I pretty much think he stinks. Oh and Fight Club ruled. As far as Angie...she will always be my cup of tea. I would like to see them stick it out... only for the sake of seeing a Gemini sustain a relationship longer than a few years. It gives me hope :D

Ace Tomato said...

Don't you think they visit a family law attorney on a regular basis? They have six kids, tons of property and more money than I can imagine. They'd be fools NOT to have a regular update with an attorney who handles super high level property/will/family arrangements.

I remember this happened after they had their twins. There was a visit to an attorney and rags reporting about some property settlement and custody arrangement.

It's more likely the visit to the lawyer means another adoption is on the way, but I didn't say that because that's how rumors get started . . .

Treesap-Covered Lady, the Humanist said...

I. Don't. Care. Can't there be a Brangie ban?

Tenley said...

Oh that's part of the whole rumoured breakup story too, Ace. That Angie's already ready to adopt -- this time without sharing custody with Brad.

Sis said...

I love BP and AJ together, no one can ever dispute the good works they do together and the kids seem happy all the time. The ones I do wonder about are the ones who have to publicize their good works all the time, or 40 is the new 20 crap etc, just to be in the limelight. There are ways to not be in the spotlight all the time, geez speculation the other day was when AJ did not show up for something it causes a huge stir and more speculation, is she supposed to appear just to cease the speculation? It is almost like you cannot get around it in this papparazi information driven world that alot of stars have, what a bother.

Vanessa said...

Why are people believing this story.

HOw many stories have there been in a month involving the angie and brad.
week one: angie is preggers
weak 2: angie and brad getting married
week 3: angie is cheating and brad run back to the arms of Jennifer
week 4: brad and angie broken up

new month:
weak one: angie and brad...so in love
week two: jen new love...brad sad...angie seethe in anger.
etc...etc...etc

come on people....
News of the world of all places...like really.

BigMama said...

I don't care if they break up, however, if they do?

1. I want it to be a big giant mess during the oscar season complete with Billy Bob quotes!

2. By contrast, I want very badly for Jennifer Aniston to walk around grinning from ear to ear and giving a "no comment" on the situation. Or better yet, a "I hate to hear of any relationship fail when there are children involved, but it is no longer my concern"

3. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE for her (JA) to all of a sudden start dating someone really HOT and relevant (Maybe Alexander Skarsgard?) thereby showing the world Brad was NOT on her radar anymore. I mean, who would want Billy Goat Brad after Angie's had him in her clutches?

(I really can't stand St.Angie

Sue said...

There are days when I seriously think that Jennifer A. is the "inside source" behind some of these break-up stories.

But I also think it would be funny if they broke up and Brad ended up with someone else besides neither of these women... if nothing else just to see the tabloids scramble :)

Lauren said...

LOL @ Big Mama!

chestnut-red said...

Sis, I have to disagree. The kids do not seem happy all the time. In fact, many times they looked very stressed and/or crying. And someone has to call the photogs to let them know where AJ and BP are and what great gifts they're giving to the world. How would we know how "generous" they are if we weren't given info on their actions? I believe AJ's PR machine is in full mode on picture set-ups and "oh, how wonderful we are because we give so much money and time to charity".

MadLyb said...

Bah, it could be true, but then again, maybe not. It's not like I'm a huge fan of Jennifer Anniston, but dear god, how would you feel if your SO dumped you and carried on an affair that is flaunted on every magazine cover week after week? I really can't bash the lady, and I sort of feel sorry for her because she's probably gone through all those guys because she's still not over Brad. I used to like AJ, but there's something so affected about her. Even so, I love that they give away millions to good causes.

sunnyside1213 said...

Very funny BigMama.

Tenley said...

If it's true, Angelina, not Aniston, will be the one dating someone white hot -- she'll replace Brad Pitt with Johnny Depp this spring when they start filming together, for example. It's not going to be Aniston who, as a single woman right now, could walk around with a giant smile and the hottest man if she wanted. The triangle will be no more and she loses her angle, finally.

What's as interesting or more is who Brad would go after next. He was with Juliette Lewis when she momentarily was the It girl; same with Gwenyth; same with Aniston; same with Angelina. We ought to be able to figure out who he'd be with next ...

Momus said...

Whether the split is real or not is completely unimportant. We will bever be free from the deadly triad. You know the real change will come only when Brangelina, AJ, and Lohans, Kardashians, Hiltons, Cyruses, Tequilas, Gosselins, etc. board an intergalactic spaceship and go the hell away, to Pandora for example. ;)

Mooshki said...

"We ought to be able to figure out who he'd be with next ..."

Marion Cotillard.

not on my dollar said...

Possibilities for Brad:

Meagan Fox, Kate Bosworth, Sienna Miller, Kate Hudson, Charlize Theron, Hillary Swank, Reese Witherspoon, Penelope Cruz(I know she's Javier but that will just make her more challenging), or anybody on their way up the ladder who looks really good because you know, they just adopted a kid.

I wonder if Oscar winner, or just adopted a baby will be the deal breaker?

not on my dollar said...

I meant to write "she's with Javier"

Lioness70 said...

I could care less what these two do, except not so long ago, they were having a $20 mil "wedding of the century" that never came to pass. So this probably isn't what the 'bloid is making it out to be.

BTW, this week's Kneepads cover is "Jen: 5 Years after Brad" or some bullshit like that. YAWN.

Me.. said...

Totally off topic but the woman can NOT act with a straight face.. I watched Mr&Mrs Smith, and she's always got a smirk and it's REALLLLLLY ANNOYYYYINNNNNGGGG!! Ugh, she really BUGS... And yes, she was HORRID in Changeling...

Sorry. just a little rant.. ;)

MCH said...

Well, Enty, all your worst fears have already come true w/ the Jen/Brad/Angie mag covers.

I am NOT a St. Angie fan AT ALL and was very much so Team Aniston. However, now that they have 20 children things are a little different.

I am HOPING Johnny Depp is smarter than BP was in falling in the black widow web. :)

@ Me.. - That's her signature sexy face. Dontchaknow? She is GREAT at portraying the bad girl. That's about it. I thought the story of Changeling was intriguing but I didn't get the hype of HER acting.
"I WANNN MY SON BAHCK"

abigail7881 said...

Well, People just had a cover of Jen with the headline "5 Years after Brad", something like that. WHY??? Was there any covers like that after any other couple broke up?

ea73 said...

Oh please, of course they're going to split up! AJ is a self-absorbed, crazy-eyed a$$hole and BP is pretty much the same.
But don't worry, b/c within a couple of days he'll be linked to most of the anorexic actresses under 25 in Hollywood. He'll never go back to JA-she's too old and too fat for him. He likes his women skeletal and young.
