Has it occurred to anyone else that Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has the same haircut as Michelle Williams? Because that just occurred to me when I saw that Angelina (or somebody) tamped down Shiloh’s hair so it now looks like Michelle’s pixie cut. Anyway, these are some newish photos – two sets, actually. One set is of Angelina, Shiloh and Zahara leaving their hotel in Amsterdam yesterday, and then the second set is of their arrival at LAX. Note the bears!!!!! The girls got some Dutch bears. Is that a thing in the Netherlands? Bears? I thought that was just a German thing. Basically, these gigantic bears are the new “gerbils”. Whatever happened to those gerbils of doom, by the way? They were probably signed with CAA and now have a book deal. The gerbils are trying to “brand” themselves. And now it’s the bears’ turn. BEARS OF DOOM.
The Enquirer has a long story this week about Angelina and Brad’s bad parenting style. Basically, they are the Anti-Goop. Remember when Gwyneth – Brad’s ex! – said she’d “rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a can”? Well, Brad and Angelina would rather feed their kids processed junk food than force them to eat veggies.
Brad and Angelina are way too liberal in giving sweet treats to their kids.
“With their money and resources, you’d think their children would be eating like kings and queens,” an insider told The Enquirer. “But they pride themselves on giving their kids a simple, normal upbringing – and that includes soft drinks, candy, cookies and everything sugary that children love. Their youngsters are hooked on junk food.”
“Angie and Brad don’t know how to say no to their kids. And with six of them screaming at once, it’s just easier to give in than fight.”
Brad recently admitted, “There’s times like, ‘We gotta get up. Get up! Here’s your shoes. Drink this Coke. Drink it all. Right now!’ Just so we could get ‘em up and going.”
The insider says: “Brad and Angie fight over the nutrition issue constantly,” revealed the insider. “He sometimes cooks up organic vegetable and tofu stir-fries or big salads, but everyone – including Angie – turn their nose up at the healthy stuff. For all their fame and fortune, they face the same dilemmas as any stressed and overwhelmed parents.”

Eh. Since I’m not a parent, do I not have the right to chime in? I was raised in a different era, and I was raised in the South by a Southern mother. Sweet tea was a staple of our household, and while I no longer drink it regularly, I do get a hankering for it a couple times a year. There was also a lot of fried food in our house, and a lot of sweets (my mom has a huge sweet tooth). I ended up not having much of a taste for pastries and the like (I love anything salty), probably because I outgrew it by being introduced to it early on. I don’t know, though. I’m not the picture of extreme health today (I‘m about average), but I don‘t think it‘s because of how I was raised. But when you think about what OUR parents’ childhoods were like (back when pregnant women were smoking and drinking), I just don’t see how this is some HUGE deal. Should the Jolie-Pitts eat better? Yes. Should the kids eat their veggies? Of course. But it’s not a war crime to give your kids candy.
