Angelina Jolie Goes Back To High School - Gets Promise Ring


Apparently Angelina Jolie doesn't really like people making fun of her dress and leg anymore which of course everyone had already stopped. Angelina got Brad Pitt to officially be engaged to her except it is not really even an engagement. Oh sure, his rep says it is because Angelina told him to say it was. Here is the quote. "It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time." Tell me how that is different from the promise ring from high school. You know, the one that cost $20 and made you feel like you were an adult. All this is doing is trying to get some publicity. Jennifer Aniston has been on massive amounts of covers the past two weeks. Of course they all say she is pregnant, but there she is looking at you when you stand in the checkout line. Not that Angelina stands in a checkout line, but she has her workers bring them to her with their tithes.

Except that Brad has been designing this for about year.

B626 said...

She looks super skinny.
He looks super dirty.
Don't care about them
Don't see their movies
Don't rent their movies
Don't support their causes

strawberrygirl said...

I don't think they will ever get married. I also think they would have broken up long ago if they didn't have an army of kids. And can Brad please shower and get a haircut?

be present said...

All the happiness for them, but this makes them less hot for some reason. Them living in sin is some of the sex appeal, for me at least

libby said...

I know it drives site traffic, but the Brange bile is a cheap tactic for hits.

Grow up, Enty. They really got engaged.
You fawn over every Real Housewife, but you have to write THIS about Brad & Angie.

It's forced and pathetic sounding, like the craziest hater from Celebitchy. You don't use the handle 'olivia' over there, do you?

It takes a year to design a ring?

We all love love, but these muhfuckas take narcissism to new places. What's creepiest about them - her in particular - isn't any renegade attitude or love of adventure or anything that can be confused (and is confused, by their stans) with badassery. It's the need to preen on a global stage. It's pretty bizarre.

Barton Fink said...

My first thought when I saw the photo was "How nice for her, but who's the Alsatian hairdresser looking over her shoulder?"

ABlake said...

Good for them. He's mentioned in interviews that the kids ask why they aren't married. No idea what kind of folks they are but they seem to be all about the children at the end of the day. I wish them nothing but the best as a married couple.

ghost said...

Brangelina getting married? Christ, now we'll never hear the end of it. People will act like these two vapid tools are the only people in history to ever get married.

B. Profane said...

Y'know, pick one set of snark to believe and stick with it. Jolie cannot be a junkie and a narcissistic bitch and a world-traveling fame whore AND obsessed with competing with Aniston for supermarket checkout covers. There's just so many hours in the day. She does have a fairly active film career and even if you think she uses her brood as set ornaments, she does spend a fair amount of time in public with them.

One way you can tell that this blog is now written by multiple people, some of whom clearly don't have the wit of the original Enty, is how so much of the content has become pandering slams against celebs that aren't even logically consistent.

Bish Please said...

Libby, why do you care about how this was authored? I truly don't understand why ANYONE would care how celebrity gossip is treated - it's all written and edited for hits, obviously - every single post. Why is it cheaper, worse, or more exploitative when directed at these two? It seems exactly like snarking about Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel.

...and I read Celebitchy, and the responses there are overwhelmingly emotionally labile in favor of Pitt and Jolie, and dragging in Aniston. Perhaps you meant (the hilarious, on-point) Michael K. of Dlisted and most of his followers.

nolachickee said...

I first thought Brad was looking like shit for a role. Then time passed, and I figured he was in a "phase". At this point, I have to ask, what the fuck is wrong with him???

Brad, you're a good looking man. That is, when you bathe, and cut those greasy, stringy locks of yours. I can take the billy goat gray shit on your chin. But c'mon man, clean your ass up.

Would Clooney leave the house looking as nasty as you? No, didn't think so.

Angie - please eat. Thank you.

B. Profane said...

Oh, libby beat me to it.

Elizabeth said...

Not a fan of Brad and Ang. They've already got three divorces between the two of them and clearly "marriage" has no meaning for either one. I think this is 100% PR and would guess they make more money selling stories and pictures than they do acting. I hope things go well for them for the sake of the kids.

donner said...

i like this couple..i've always liked them. they have their issues, but she does activist work and he's helped rebuild NO...while Aniston goes to Cabo and smokes weed...(good for her, sure). I know they aren't perfect, but they seem to be real parents compared to JLo and Kidman who use their kids as props.

flame on...

Jasmine said...

In response to the topic at hand, I dont think Jolie necessarily directed Pitt to give her a ring all to stop Aniston's tabloid covers- that's ridiculous!

Plus, it's an engagement ring to me. Just because there's no set date yet (and why would they tell the public anyway) doesnt mean it's some juvenile promise. sheeesh.

TaterOnTheCouch said...

Didn't they say a few years ago that they weren't going to get married until gay couples could as well? So much for that plan.

Elizabeth said...

Donner, Aniston, who has nothing to do with these two by the way, works for St. Judes. And she doesn't spend her days making sure you know about it so you'll call her a "humanitarian".

It would be easier to appreciate any activist work these two do if they weren't so busy making sure the cameras were there. Sure, they'll tell you they sell the pictures but they keep a good portion of that money so they are making money from convincing you of their great activist work. As a PR move, it's freaking brilliant.

txtommom said...

Hey nobody is talking about how stupid she looked with the leg thing anymore. Guess the latest PR worked.

pilly said...

Bag them. I just won The Grand National!!

short le chic said...

isn't it true that Aniston PLAYED the part of jilted wife upon agreement with Pitt that they would go their separate ways----since Pitt was in love with a young architect (and didn't now how to QUIT him) and Aniston threw him out because of it? i heard Angie is perfectly fine with the architect because she's in love with a woman. i know, i know...insanity. but apparently Pitt had encouraged Aniston to go for it with someone else and she did but the one one the side (rumoured to be M. Warhlberg) broke her heart....nothing is as it seems. i heard brange are not exactly bearding for each other because they do bang, but they also are in love with other, same-sex people.

Sarah said...

Ok, short le chic. I'll hand it to you. I thought I'd heard it all about Brad and Angelina, but NOW I've heard it all. And I'm out.

firebugDVM said...

@Short le chick
That's a fun story!

vega said...

I had read a few times that the Pitt-Aniston marriage died after he found out she'd had 2 abortions in spite of publicly declaring how much she wanted to start a family with him. Apparently her career took priority with her. But that he stayed with the status quo until he met Jolie.

I do wish he'd wash his hair more than once a month. Gross!

Did anyone read the Andrew Morton bio of A.J.? I knew something had to have happened to her in childhood (I thought sexual abuse). One of Morton's souces who used to babysit AJ said that AJ's mother was so devestated over Jon Voight leaving her and that AJ reminded her so much of JV that she set up AJ's crib in an upstairs apartment that JV used to use as an office and hired a series of struggling actors and actresses to babysit her in shifts. Micheline didn't really have much contact with AJ until friends and family finally convinced her she was harming her child. AJ was over a year old by then. Knowing how important it is for a baby to bond with people and be held and comforted and interacted with, is it any wonder that AJ seems a tad unusual in her character?

EmEyeKay said...

After recently wondering how much longer these two would be together, it comes as a surprise to me. Her ring is gorgeous, wish there were better photos of it.

Elizabeth said...

I find it amazing that Brangelina fans are so devoted that they have to make Aniston the bad guy that deserved what they did to her. She deserved it! In fact, they were being kind not to have punched her in the face too. And Jolie is the victim? Whatever. Pure PR.

MISCH said...

If he wants to make a bad situation worse let him.
I can't stand either one of them...
He designed Jen's ring also...

Barton Fink said...

@TaterOnTheCouch, as a non-fan of Brangelina and a gay guy, I say "Get married already." I admire that he called attention to the equality in marriage thing, and I am grateful for people's support and all, but if all weddings are called off, the gay community will lose its lucrative Wedding Planner income, and that would be about the biggest blow to us since the Larry Craig! Get married, people, and support equality in the voting booth.

Also, same-sex couples can marry in many states, so Brangelina have some wiggle room. Maybe they can wed in NY?

Elizabeth said...

Barton Fink, come to Washington State and get married. We support gay marriage and welcome expensive gay weddings. In fact, we've got some of the most beautiful wedding views in the country, all the way to the San Juan Islands.

SusanB said...

I was really hoping they would elope on the day KimK had her big wedding. Perhaps they can wait until KimK has her NEXT big wedding!

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Brad designed a emerald cut solitaire ring? Wow, what a genius!

As I recall, he designed Aniston's ring, too, and then got all bitchy and litigious when the manufacturer used its likeness in an ad without a "designed by Brad Pitt" credit.

Oh, and Brad's an ARCHITECT in his spare time.

This douche. How did it take us all so long to notice what a fucking tool Brad Pitt is?

Sherry said...

Funny how people get all worked up over these two.However, I would like to see the ring. IF it's a emerald cut solitaire on a single band truly there weren't much design going on there. NOW you're a pretentious asshole, Brad. EmEyKay could do way better than that with her eyes closed.(Props to Em for her art if you didn't guess.)

msgirl said...

Ahem. Supposedly the "design" entailed having the ring in perfect proportion to Angie's hand.

I'm a fan but still retain enough detachment to be amused at how polarized comments become about them! Maybe because I never watched Friends so have nothing at stake here?

LynGBH said...

I like 'em both...even better together. JA gets on my nerves.

Just throwing that in there, because I know my opinion is extremely important to all.

amy's apples said...

b. profane add libby thanks for your posts. i see now that i need to stay at blindgossip and dlisted. cdan's absent blinds be damned.

lutefisk said...

I could have gotten them the ring wholesale...

ardleighstreet said...

Who cares! They are BORING and seem so contrived. I think it's great they got engaged. Good for them! I could care less. Now if he said he was marrying George Clooney,I might actually be interested.

Denise said...

I think they publicize their humanitarian efforts in order to create awareness and pethaps get others to join in their efforts. isn't that why most causes and charities publicize things? but who cares why they do it, at least they are.

I too like them and ja irks me...she is a white, not that cute and every part she plays she is Rachel green.

canada girl said...

I've lost so much respect for her since she directed that movie. First claiming it's unbiased, then making it the most biased movie ever made. She has no idea what went on in bosnia yet she acts as such an expert to appear more as a humanitarian.

I totally think that Brad has been cheating and this is his way of keeping her happy and secure after it and that ridiculous oscars appearance.

MadLyb said...

Brad's stuck. He has 3 kids with her, and the adopted kids are attached to him. At times, they are a lovely couple, but at other times, they look like a couple where the woman is narcissistic and anorexic (not to mention the methadone addiction), with delusions of Sainthood, and the man is hiding half of his sexuality, along with poor hygiene.

luci skywalker said...

the loons have gone absolutely mad over this pfff
regarding other gossip sites:
I find celebitchy just too plain annying pro-loon
dlisted is awesome (in anything)
and I really love bohomoth's insight on the brange, anti-loon (I got to know this site because someone in this site posted a really good article on AJ).
My personal opinion is that this is pure PR an AJs side.

Lelaina Pierce said...

I wonder what that Ian Undercover dude thinks about this? Pfff

How does it take someone a year to design an engagement ring?

Jessie said...

My friend's husband designed her engagement ring in less than a year and it's original and stunning. That thing on Ange's hand is zzZzzzz...

But I'm an Aniston fan so I don't really care for this pairing anyway.

Me said...

i like them! hate marriage, but i like THEM. that ring is no $20 piece of glass. doesn't it seem as if it would be impossible for them to get married? press frenzy!!

Me said...

"He has 3 kids with her, and the adopted kids are attached to him." they are all his kids. he adopted the first 2 after angie did, but he did adopt each of them. (ha, i'm on a first name basis).

Happymostofthetime said...

What I want to know is why Ms. United Nations isn't wearing conflict-free diamonds.

EmEyeKay said...

@Sherry - thank you! *blushes* (for REAL! I'm blushing!)

redronnie said...

nice to see anytime the three of them are in the tabs the blogs go nuts. to quote my grand-daughter, "really, come on, really? Sick to death of them really, read the new york times item on how their status and finances improved when they became a couple. Each time they seem to fade from the headlines Ang tosses a leg, or Brad grows facial hair. So transparent, watching these two famew***es
