Brangelina might make Oscar appearance to fight the rumors


While the dust still settles on the swirl of rumors about an impending Brangelina split, many media outlets are doing pieces on the question of “Why now?” As in, “Why did these rumors garner such strength when there have been breakup rumors for more than four years?” One prevailing theory is that it’s some kind of “punishment” because Brad and Angelina didn’t show up to any of the awards shows, giving lazy entertainment journalists something to write about. Well, that ploy may have worked (I believe it’s called “negative reinforcement”) because now the rumor going around E! News is that Brad and Angelina will make an appearance at the Oscars, a photo op designed to show how they’re just fine. And of course that dialect coach – the one Angelina allegedly had vodka-soaked sex with on black rubber sheets - has come forward with a much less sketchy story about his non-sexual relationship with Angelina:

Since various tabloids have had Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie breaking up since the day they got together, what’s different about their latest fabled trip to Splitsville?

Well, this time Jolie supposedly cheated on her bearded beau.

But while In Touch Weekly is reporting the Oscar winner had an affair with the “dialect coach” she worked with for her upcoming spy thriller Salt, the film’s resident dialect coach tells E! News the rumor couldn’t be further from the truth.

And not just because he didn’t even work with Jolie on Salt.

“Oh, my friends thought it was hysterical,” said 51-year-old Howard Samuelsohn, whose credits include 2012 and Revolutionary Road. “I’ve had eight different reporters call me, and one was even outside my home.”

He says that ITW contacted him last week, asking about the nature of his working relationship with Jolie.

“I said, ‘Yes, I know her professionally. She’s very nice.’…And then I immediately became the guy who slept with Angelina Jolie.

“I’m not a language coach,” he explained. “She doesn’t have a dialect in the movie; she speaks Russian. There were several people who taught her the language. I worked with a Polish actor, Daniel Olbrychski, on the movie to make his English better.”

Plus, Samuelsohn added that he’s been “with the same woman for 33 years.”

Good lord, what would we do if Brangelina dared to last that long?!

Meanwhile, a rep for the Waldorf Astoria, where a housekeeper named Anna Kowalski supposedly told ITW she saw kinky evidence of the alleged tryst, has said that no such person works there.

But the magazine tells E! News that it’s standing by its story, semantics aside, and that a source verified that Kowalski worked at the Waldorf over the summer.

“As In Touch Weekly originally reported, an ex-employee of the Waldorf-Astoria in New York told the magazine exclusively that Angelina Jolie cheated on Brad Pitt with one of her language tutors on the set of her movie Salt,” a rep for ITW said in a statement, which modifies the job description of the purported lothario from the published text.

“We never claim Anna was a current employee of the hotel or provide the specific name of her coach, of which there were several. In Touch stands by our reporting on this story.”
So is this all coming to a head because Pitt and Jolie haven’t been photographed together in a while?

Pitt appeared Friday on the Hope for Haiti Now benefit, but he and the mama of his children opted to skip the Golden Globes and Saturday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, where Pitt would have been sharing the limelight with his Inglourious Basterds costars during their win for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

He’s slated to present a statue at the Directors Guild of America Awards on Saturday in Century City.

Jolie hasn’t been seen (by anyone with a telephoto lens, that is) since she took daughters Zahara and Shiloh to a Whole Foods market in Sherman Oaks, Calif., on Jan. 16.

In fact, the last time we saw the whole family (minus twins Knox and Vivienne) looking cozy was during their holiday-time trip to NYC last month.

But perhaps this latest blip on the happy-couple radar will disappear soon. A source close to the couple tells E! News there is no split, and Hollywood Life is reporting that Jolie and Pitt are planning on attending the Oscars. Together.

They might even hold hands.

[From E! News]

I guess it would be a smart move to go to the Oscars and give people the photo op. I know I will be accused of being a Brangeloonie (and I do like them – her more than him), but I don’t think they’re having huge problems in their relationship. As CB said yesterday, I wouldn’t be surprised if they had the normal problems of any couple, especially a couple with lots of young children. But I think they’re very much together, and very much a team – for now and for the foreseeable future (like, the next few years). I was actually thinking about this last night as I was watching E! News, and I actually think Brangelina will last longer then some of the media-designated “solid” couples, like Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck.

    well only time will tell.I must say that I admire their tactic to only attend the most important events; it’s the same tactic Marilyn Monroe used at the peak of her fame- she was so rarely seen in public, whenever she showed, people went crazy. and it works for them, as well.

  2. Alex says:

    I also think they will last longer than a lot of so called happy married couples in HW. I always lol when people say that they aren’t seen out together, why should they when they live together and see each other every darn day and night unless one of them is out of the state.

    I think Brad and Angelina are deeply committed to their relationship and their kids and that is not something they take lightly.

  3. Praise St. Angie! says:

    I wonder this every time I see a pic of them from this event…are those earring REAL emeralds?

  4. Madelyn Rose says:

    I do hope that they come to the Oscars, just because I think it would be highly entertaining! Love them or hate them, Brangie is very interesting. I (along with many others) would have a great time reading their body language and examining their red carpet interviews!

  5. DoMaJoReMc says:

    I dn’t know the time lines, so I will humbly ask….

    Was she pregnant at the time in the top photo?

  6. Beth says:

    It really doesn’t matter if they go to the Oscars or not. People will still say the brokeup no matter what they do.

  7. YT says:

    They have already lasted five years with busy careers and lots of children. That’s better than many celebrity and non-celebrity marriages. The only reason there is so much discussion about their relationship is that it sells gossip magazines.

  8. princess pea says:

    Chances are good that Inglorious Basterds will be up for Best Picture, so if he’s the friend of Quentin’s they say he is, they REALLY should attend. Oh yeah, and the tabloids blah blah blah in yer face Jen blah blah blah breakup marriage babies blah blah won’t somebody think of the gerbils, etc. That too.

  9. Tess says:

    Heard somebody’s writing a book about this called “The Audacity of Courage.”

    It’s, you know, about how these two will overcome every obstacle and fight this epic battle right on the Red Carpet.

  10. Essie says:

    Praise, those are real emeralds. I remember the jeweler being mentioned and how much they cost but I can’t remember now.

    I really wish they wouldn’t show up at the Oscars. It would mean an over analysis of their “body language” and the tabs (and haters) saying they are “fake” and all the usual garbage. I prefer it when they just ignore all the rubbish surrounding them and they just go on with their lives like they don’t give a sh!t!! That’s what drives the ragmags crazy.

    I also believe they will last longer than a lot of other so-called “stable” relationships, especially the Affleck/Garner marriage. I mean, why don’t the ragmags talk about how often those two are apart and how much they “pimp” out their kids??

  11. SageAdvice says:

    They are probably just fine. Though I hope they don’t show at the Oscars-their nonsense would overshadow everyone else and the awards show itself. And that is NOT a good thing.

    And Kaiser, no one could accuse you of being a Brangeloonie same as no one could accuse me of being black. I just am what I am and you just are what you are. Accept it.

    EDIT: Garner/Affleck aren’t followed as much because they are boring. No one accuses them of pimping out their children because I don’t recall them selling their baby pictures to ragmags.

  12. Sumodo says:

    Let the betting start now: he shaves or he doesn’t shave. This could be St. Ange’s way of getting him to cut off the crusty crap on his face.

  13. Reader says:

    He seems sooo unhappy… no matter if they are together or not.She is an strong woman in control of the relationship,will do whatever she wants…

  14. cee says:

    It is pretty obvious I love them both. I would love to see them at the Oscar’s but we all know it will not end the tabloid rumors as long as they sell. Anistons PR guy must be in heaven right now except for the fact that she got dissed by GB.

  15. Cheyenne says:

    I think they should do whatever they want and let anybody make what they want out of it. It’s their family and their relationship and they don’t owe any explanations or justifications to anyone. Everybody needs to butt the hell of their business and let them get on with their lives.

  16. bite me says:

    what does selling baby pictures have to do with anything, plenty of other stars like juliaa roberts with her twins, j.lo christina aguilera gwen stefani did it with her first… have done it… those affleck children are photograph every damn day…

  17. lucy2 says:

    LOL @ Tess.
    Time will tell. Whether or not they’re happy together I don’t really care, but they decided to raise 6 young kids together so hopefully they stick it out, at least for a while, so the kids have an intact family.
    Those earrings have always looked plastic-y in photos to me for some reason. I bet in person they’re stunning though.
    I will play the cynic here and say hmmm, this little rumor has certainly gotten them a lot of media attention during award season, put them in the spotlight even though neither are nominated this year, and now everyone is highly anticipating their Oscar appearance…if they (well, she) is some PR mastermind, I’d have to say well done!

  18. June says:

    Brad and Angie are very happy together, if they were not ,the tabloids would not try so hard to convince us ,that they are not.

  19. SageAdvice says:

    Bite me: But who really pays attention to Garner/Affleck? They don’t get entire posts devoted to them on this site whenever they go out. They aren’t really filming anything interesting and lead fairly boring, normal lives from what I can tell.

    Other stars are also boring: J.Lo, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani. They had kids and kinda laid low for awhile afterwards. And none of them are as famous as Brangelina. All of them are relative has-beens. Still kinda famous, but their peak has passed. And none of them were ever big tabloid fodder.

    Face it, for some reason, Brangelina attract the rags like flies to honey.

    And all celebrities who sell baby pictures pimp their children. But this post isn’t about Gwen Stefani/J.Lo/Christina Aguilera/whomever else, right?

    I personally think it’s weird and twisted to present one’s children to the world as though one has discovered the cure for cancer. It’s a baby. Millions of them are born every day. One might think one’s kid is special, but I can guarantee that pretty much only one’s family and friends agree. To everyone else: it’s another baby.

  20. Lil says:

    My ass for those two!

    The fact that they are together or not its not gonna change my life, its gonna bring food to my table, its not gonna make me happier or sad…

    So, who cares?

  21. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “dissed” by GB?

    how so?

    thanks for the info on the earrings. They’re gorgeous, if a little ostentatious. but great for a red carpet event, and they do go well with a black dress. Since the dress is simple, the jewelry should be the “glam” part. a dress that color (the emerald) would look great on her, I think.

  22. bite me says:

    well sage we are just going to have to agree to disagree, because i don’t think selling the baby pix is pimping out their children… and Sage i do agree for some reason love or hate them brangelina has the public attention

  23. Essie says:

    I agree, Bite. Selling the baby pictures make sense because the paps will run over you to get a shot of the baby anyway so why not sale the pics and give the money to charity (Ang/Brad) or keep the money in your pocket (Jlo/Mark)? It makes me laugh when stars like Halle and Nicole K. sound all high and mighty saying they “refuse” to sale pics of their babies and we find out later that they didn’t sale because they couldn’t get the amount of money they wanted from People, et. al.!!

  24. Me says:

    Can’t wait to watch the charade! I love Angie’s awkward, desperate clinging, and the wistful look in drunk Brad’s eyes as he pines for the days when he had control of his balls and wasn’t strapped to a psycho, baby-collecting junkie.

    Praise Jebus, I’m so excited to hear about the kinds of cereal Angie prepares for her rainbow family! Maybe we’ll even get one of those staged backseat make-out sessions as they’re pulling away from the awards ceremony! Good times.

  25. SageAdvice says:

    Quite frankly I think the gossip magazines were pissed that Halle and others refused to sell the pictures so they spread false rumors about them asking for a certain amount and not getting it. It sounds like exactly the kind of spiteful sh*t that they’d pull.

    The paps will follow certain people no matter what. Selling those baby pictures didn’t get the paps of Brangelina’s back did it?

  26. June says:

    Are you talking about the awkward, desperate clinging, Jennifer Aniston did with Gerald Butler at the Golden Globes, that was rather pathetic.

    Let’s not forget the makeout session in the kitchen, Jennifer and Gerald engaged in. LOL

    Atleast Brad is Angie’s man, she can cling to him if she likes.

    To Gerald, “Jen is who you do, when there is no one else to do.”

  27. Jay says:

    I hope they don’t show up just because I know it will drive a lot of people crazy. It’s fun to watch Jennifer Aniston fans pull there hair out over this couple. All the drama is so funny to read as they proclaim they are over the triangle and you know they are not.

  28. Sigh. says:

    Will they or won’t they/Are they or aren’t they will probably garner The Oscars the highest ratings in a long time. Right after “JA/AJ The Standoff” of previous, that never happened.

    At this point, there’s so much SPECULATION, that it will change very few opinions. They could be together, but he’s played the “No really, we’re ok” role w/ his ex. They could be honestly drifting apart/trying to split amicably and discreetly, and the loon-looniest of loons will still blame it on the media, his family, the alcohol, etc.

    Damned if they do, damned if they don’t.
    I’m gonna go listen to some Jamie Foxx…

  29. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “desperate clinging”?

    because they had their arms around each other? he was “clinging” to her as much as she was “clinging” to him. Please, it was a couple of former co-stars and friends promoting a movie.

    as for the make-out session? you believe THAT crock from the tabloids but nothing about the Brange?

    GB (supposedly) doesn’t drink anymore, so them sipping Moet and making out doesn’t hold water.

  30. Kim says:

    So I guess these emeralds my hubby gave me aren’t real they are darker .

  31. Praise St. Angie! says:

    emeralds vary in color, and it’s actually very hard to find one that doesn’t have flecks of “pollution” of some kind in them.

    if they’re completely clear (and large), it’s very likely they’re so-called “lab created” emeralds (which also tend to be darker than natural ones).

    you can get smaller ones that are clear (and natural), as you can cut the parts with the debris out.

  32. skibunny says:

    Her hair looks ridiculous in this photo

  33. PJ says:

    Brilliant, Lucy2! The split rumors are indeed ramping up enthusiasm for their Oscar appearance. And why not? They put on a good show!

    The first thing I thought of when reading about the rumors last week was, “They’ll be all lovey-dovey in front of the cameras soon to dispel the rumors.” That’s what they always do.

  34. Sigh. says:

    Exactly (EDIT: Agreeing with Praise…your emeralds may not be the same type).
    But these are Columbian emeralds that have been CUT a certain way to also retain their unique “watermelon” color.
    She had a HOT ring to match, too.

  35. truthSF says:

    Hate to bust your bubble Kaiser, but they won’t be giving the tabloid what they want, i.e. going to the Oscars. They will both be out of the country while Angelina & Mr. Depp start shooting “The Tourist”.

    here’s the link:

  36. Sigh. says:

    Watch this all be for naught.
    I say the’ll be a no-show.

    ::Stirring pot, wringing hands::

  37. June says:

    To St. Angie , I was responding to the person, who made the comment, Angelina was awkwardly, desperately clinging to Brad.

    Brad is her partner and the father of Angelina’s 6 kids and this woman can not hug her man, with out someone calling it ” awkwardly, desperately clinging to Brad “.

    As for believing tabloid crap, the News of the World is a tabloid and it seems , the Jenhens are believing for the 10,000 times, “Brad and Angelina have split.

    Man I wish I had a dollar for everytime that lie has been printed.

  38. Kim says:

    Playing lovey dovey has never dispelled rumors.Star, NE and INtouchweekly has had them fighting/breaking up in every issue in the last year. I looked at back issues on jezebel and Thanks for info on emeralds.

  39. Cheyenne says:

    Unless Angie can be in two places at once, they won’t be there. She’s shooting “The Tourist” in Venice at that time.

  40. Sigh. says:

    They’re not going?
    PLUS no “official” denial of rumors?
    Consider the fire fueled.
    Fueled and fanned.

    This going to be a longer winter than I thought…

  41. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “To St. Angie , I was responding to the person, who made the comment, Angelina was awkwardly, desperately clinging to Brad.”

    so, you throw out Aniston’s name and make an “accusation” that’s not accurate? just to “get even”? (for the record, I don’t see how Jolie is “clinging” to Pitt…they’re a couple showing affection.)

    “As for believing tabloid crap, the News of the World is a tabloid and it seems , the Jenhens are believing for the 10,000 times, “Brad and Angelina have split”

    and so, again, it makes it OK if YOU state some tabloid crap like it’s true, just to “get even”?

  42. Kim says:

    JUstjared just posted a thread that they won’t attend they will be in Venice where AJ will be shooting the Tourist.

  43. Kim says:

    I believe candid shots of the family in Europe like the pics at the grocery store and pet store in France are better than RC pics anyway

  44. Birdie says:

    I just DIE for those Emerald Lorraine Schwartz earrings Angelina wore to the Oscars last year. I wanted them so badly, but then I did the research at they cost $2.5 million. So that will never happen for me… But damn those earrings are beautiful.

    Kaiser, “But I think they’re very much together, and very much a team – for now and for the foreseeable future (like, the next few years). I was actually thinking about this last night as I was watching E! News, and I actually think Brangelina will last longer then some of the media-designated “solid” couples, like Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck.”

    I couldn’t agree with you more. Brad is a late-in-life father who wanted to have kids all his life (at least since he started giving interviews about having children back in 1996 when he was engaged to Goop Paltrow)… He waited a long time to have the family he has, and I think he really respects the sanctity of his home life and Angelina as a partner. As a couple, they seem to be on the same page, with priorities being family, charity, work. They are equally famous, equally successful, at least in my eyes, they seem to be really in sync with other. I said it yesterday, but having common goals (raise kids & humanitarianism) , common enemies (tabloids) could only serve to reinforce their closeness.

  45. June says:

    To St.Angie, yes that was the point, If Angie can not hug her partner , the father of her 6 kids, without someone calling it “awkward, desperate and clinging”.

    Then Jennifer’s actions at the Golden Globes was “awkward, desperate and clinging”.

    As for stating tabloid crap to back-up tabloid crap, it seems to be done all the time , sweets. Sometimes that is the only way to shut the Jenhens up.

    Remind them of all of the negative stuff the tabs. have said about Jennifer and they have hollered it is a lie, because it came from a tabloid.

  46. Praise St. Angie! says:

    June, “sweets”, two wrongs don’t make a right.

    you’re basically mimicking the behavior that you’re calling them out for. don’t you think you’d be better off pointing out their hypocrisy instead of engaging in it yourself?

  47. N.D. says:

    About that clinging thing – neither of them is clinging and desperate. One is hugging her long-time lover and the other is just promoting her latest movie with costar who is her love interest in this movie.

  48. gg says:

    Hm, I gotta wonder if there isn’t some truth this time – CBS Sunday Morning even announced they were splitting. Seems they might have checked it out before announcing such odd (for them) type news.

  49. Praise St. Angie! says:

    gg, keep in mind…wasn’t it Dan Rather and CBS that ran with the bogus documents regarding Bush’s time in the nat’l guard?

    I see what you’re saying, but even a reputable source doesn’t always check on things when they’re running with a JUICY story.

  50. June says:

    To St. Angie, “Hon” Sometimes when dealing with Jenhens that approach does not work.

  51. Mimi says:

    I am increasingly impressed by how the media tries to control not only what we should think about other people but also how to act, dress and speech.
    The message was given to Brad and Angie but they did not cooperate with the circus and the result was programs that would theoretically be based on facts and evidence to present their news decided to rely on a tabloid for reporting the false separation, even with a source as weak as a tabloid.
    Now they sent another message that is APPEAR ON THE DAY OF OSCAR and the response that Angie and Brad are giving is GTFO of our lives.
    I really hope they do not appear and take a long vacation in Europe to have some peace for a time at less.
    and RIGHT ON June

  52. Praise St. Angie! says:

    well, June, “Hon”, why deal with them at all, then?

    sort of like the people who visit “disgusting” sites…because they’re so disgusting, they just can’t wait to go to read how disgusting the comments are and then report to us how disgusted they are.

  53. Munkey says:

    Praise: Some of these nuts will never understand and/or accept the (very simple) logic even if God, Himself, were to come down and explain it to them face to face. I admire your gumption, though, and agree with everything you say.

  54. Iggles says:

    @ Mimi:
    “Now they sent another message that is APPEAR ON THE DAY OF OSCAR and the response that Angie and Brad are giving is GTFO of our lives.”

    The position that the media is putting Brangelina in is so sick. They can’t win. Any denials and appearance will be read as false. And the lies will help People, In Touch and all the other rags to sell more copies.

    I’m surprised they haven’t pulled a Johnny Depp and stayed in France! Cameras everywhere, media scrutiny. It’s a sick game.

    Good luck to them both!

  55. June says:

    To St. Angie, if you do not like how I go about dealing with the Jenhens, you do not have to read my comments or reply to them.

    It seems to be like going to a disgusting site , just to report how disgusting the site is. Now where did I hear that from.?

  56. sharylmj says:

    as always… Brad and Angie don’t give a crap about the tabloids. They won’t be at the Oscars because she’s working. Unless it’s convenient, then maybe. They have to prearrange their schedule way ahead of time to coordinate moving the kids and situating their family. They won’t change their plans just to appease the tabloids.

  57. Sigh. says:

    These two could sit down with their kids, his family (since they seem to be a repeated point of contention), AND Aniston on tv and address this, and the “experts,” haters, and loons would have a holy war about what they perceive (body language, btwn the lines, what was not said, ulterior motives) to argue their baseless points.

    Then if they stay away, the “Phantom Twins” and the hunt for the most recent photo multiplies in intensity, which will totally disrupt the movie set, and goes back to the over-analyzing.

    If they seperate (I for one, would manage to go on), and everyone finds new relationships, then we’re going to inundated with stories that somehow link them all together years and years later.

    Unfortunately, this has become such a juggernaut, that I think there is no point of return.

  58. princess pea says:

    @ Sigh – Oh man, could you imagine if they split up and each got a new spouse (including Aniston)? Then we’d have a freaking HEXAGON to deal with in the tabs.

  59. nana says:

    angie doesnt care what other people are saying esp her lovelife. you remember her interview with Ann Cury in 2005?

    Curry: Have you been hurt?

    Jolie: No, it takes a lot to hurt me.

    Curry: Are you being just a tough girl?

    Jolie: No, no, no, I’ve just grown up too much to be hurt by what people’s opinion of my love life is. That doesn’t hurt me. You know, attack my child, that hurts me. You know, it doesn’t hurt me. It is what it is. I’m more annoyed when, because of all of it, I try to take my son on a carousel yesterday, and we’ve got too many people flashing pictures for him to have a good time. That bothers me. But you know, I don’t read the gossip. But it is never nice to be caught up in a whirlwind of a bunch of stuff and the world feeling they have an opinion about your life and your family.

    Curry: Why not just say it now and not let anybody keep talking about it?

    Jolie: I’ve never intentionally hurt…

    Curry: Why not just say what’s going on, so nobody keeps putting a camera in your face?

    Jolie: It’s not about that. And you and I both know that I could make a thousand statements right now, and it doesn’t matter. It really doesn’t matter.

    Curry: People will still…

    Jolie: They will. People will say what they want to say, and it’s okay. And my life will go on, and I need to focus on my life. So, do I need to defend that I’m a decent woman? I sure hope I don’t. I know I am.

    Curry: I admire you for saying it’s nobody’s business when you could so easily just make the paparazzi go away.

    Jolie: No, you can’t.

    Curry: You just don’t think you can. Do they scare you, the paparazzi?

    Jolie: Do they scare me?

    Curry: They hunt you.

    Jolie: You know, I’ve spent the last month in Pakistan and Sierra Leone in places they should be focusing on taking pictures. They’re nowhere. You know, I’ve just come back to New York. I’ve been gone a month. And so now they’re going to get me on a carousel.

    Curry: Well, what about this picture for which a paparazzi photographer got half a million dollars. A long lens pictures of you in Africa with Brad. I mean, this is insane. I would say it’s inane. What do you say it is?

    Jolie: You know, you bought it. You’re holding it.

    Curry: I didn’t buy it.

    Jolie: But I mean the fact is, it’s part of your program. It’s something that we’re talking about. Still. That’s probably why he got half a million dollars. That day needs to forever be a day that I made a sand castle with my son. And that’s what that will always be.

    Curry: What do you want to say to Americans on what we should be thinking about?

    Jolie: I don’t have the answer for what anyone should be focusing on. I make it a point not to buy certain magazines, not because I am against tabloids or things like that, but I want to fill my mind with valid issues in the world. I’d like there to be less refugees. I’d like all girls to go to school. That’s what we need to be thinking about, and working on making our own families good and strong and our own kids happy. Not to cloud our minds with things that don’t matter.

  60. Maleficent says:

    Wow, some people really spend time doing their Brangelina homework.

  61. Sigh. says:

    @ Princess —
    And MY GOD, don’t let the potential new lovers/spouses have been DIVORCED (gasp and swoon!) or previously embroiled in some sort of unresolved/ill-defined controversy. Then we’d have to hear remarks from the exes, their parents, “friends,” lawyers, hairdressers, mail carriers, etc.

    Then, BOOM!, Maddox is old enough to date and speak for himself to the media (if he so chooses)! It will never end

  62. lisa says:

    I am a fan.. and I think they are fine. If they are not then time will tell.. I would be sad to see them break up. My life will not change. I just think there is something deeply wrong with the soul of people who are so excited or hopeful that they break up. Don’t understand that. But hey.. they have withstood more then most people would be able to handle. I think all the attacks on them makes then cling to each other more. And makes them stronger as a couple.

    They are the draw for the Awards Shows. Which is why some are pissed they chose to say no this year. THEY did every awards show last year. That had to be exhausting. Brad said so. Well this year he is not nominated nor is Angie.. they traveled all over the world last year, and I remember the critics screaming about them dragging the kids all over. Well they have pretty much been in one place most of the year. NOW people are complaining that they are not going to the awards show.. Lots of people who win are not even there to accept. Angie is filming in Venice. Brad will be with her as he has been for 5 years.. just as she has done when he filmed. So nothing different. When Brad was nominated for Babel. They went to ONE show that was it. Nothing before that. So all the speculating because they didn’t to the awards shows.. MAKES NO SENSE..

    Again.. I hope they stay together. I really think they are an awesome match.. and even more so for their 6 children.

    Hexagon? We will polygon crazy by then don’t you think?

  64. Beachbum says:

    Run Brad, Run.. maybe your Fans will come back to you.. i know I WAS one before this all started. He should Go to the Academy Awards and support the Cast,Crew and Director. Most people would agree. JMO

  65. d says:

    I’d like to see them stick it out, but I think they really are done. Mostly because Brad always looks so damn miserable. It could be because he’s tired with all the kids, but I’m better they really have put themselves through the wringer and are done. I think they have different interests too and it’s kind of a growing in different directions thing. I like Jolie, but I also think she’s a handful, plus what she does on top of everything else, Plus all those kids, plus acting. Two people like that can’t be married. One has to be at least out of the acting scene. I guess it was doomed to fail. IMO anyway…

  66. Bek says:

    Not that anybody cares (as a lot of you are keen to say over and over), but there’s an interesting story circulating the internet about Howard Stern and his claims about the Brangie break-up. He says Brad should have known better about hooking up with Ange, considering her last husband Billy Bob, a man with multiple phobias and problems of his own, said that Angie had too many problems for him to deal with. Interesting…

  67. whatever says:

    Link, Bek? I remember BB saying Angie was a really good person who was “too good for him.” They both congratulated each other on their awards, kids. Angie has a good track record with her exs–they all seem to like her, talk about her well, and keep in touch. It seems like you are just trying to make up some drama where there is none to make her look bad.

  68. moo says:

    Brad is dumping her and it’s about time!!! YEA!!!!!

  69. Bek says:

    @whatever: yeah, I’m known for that…not really. I’m just regurgitating what I’ve read. It might be on more news channels/blogs by tomorrow. Sorry to have upset you. I should know better. I forgot how easy it is to upset the burned. I tend to try and take all of this as lightly as I can. You should too.

  70. Solveig says:

    I hope that is Angelina the one who’s dumping, if they are splitting.
    And I’m not even a fan of hers.

    “Jolie: I don’t have the answer for what anyone should be focusing on. I make it a point not to buy certain magazines, not because I am against tabloids or things like that, but I want to fill my mind with valid issues in the world. I’d like there to be less refugees. I’d like all girls to go to school. That’s what we need to be thinking about, and working on making our own families good and strong and our own kids happy. Not to cloud our minds with things that don’t matter.”

    She is skinny but her ego is HUGE!

    Ang, darling, I don’t believe for a second that you don’t care what people say. Every move you have made in the past has been done to gain attention, why should it be different now that you are acting like a saint? Your statements ooze a “listen to me, I’m above you all. I’m you savior” vibe.

  71. SageAdvice says:

    nana: you remember her interview with Ann Curry in 2005?

    …no. And someone who can recall an interview someone did with someone else literally 5 years ago has some issues bordering on obsession. Let them go.

  72. lisa says:

    The best thing is to live your life and not worry about what people who don’t know you think.

    good for Brad/Angie.. Let the people wishing for a breakup.. wait and wait and wait. It would be one thing if this was the first time these stories have been printed.. NOT.. they have been going on for 5 years.. 5 years.. Same old story. and actually this one is a replay of one they printed last year about a 200 million prenup.. I recall that one. AND according to the tabs.. Brad has left at least 50 times.. yet he can’t seem to find the door nob.. All the things Angie did that are considered dark or Crazy were done when she was what 19-24 or so.. AND yet we have seen stories of Johnny Depp on drugs, Robert Downey drugged out and breaking into peoples home Celebs beating their wives, cheating and on and all while over the age of 21.. yet these people are able to grow and change and their past is off the table. I don’t think anyone can name a thing in Angie’s life that is Dark/Crazy since she became a mother. But her past.. and only her past is thrown up in her face. NEVER arrested, NEVER caught doing drugs, NEVER.. the things we know about her are because she told the world. NO secrets.. NO lies.. just the truth. But I guess she should have been what many celebs are.. phony and pretending to be lilly white. Well I will take honest and real over phony and hiding any day.

    Angie is an HONEST person. And that is what people are attacking her for. Her honesty.. SAD.. really sad.

    I wish the best for her and Brad..

  73. Heaven-bound says:

    Cheyenne always so well informed about the Jolie-Pitts. I am starting to believe she is one of the Gerbils of doom LOL.

  74. Dhavy says:

    I don’t think they are the type of people to show up anywhere to shut anyone up.

    People need to get over the fact that it’s been years since he was with JA, some people her act as if they never seen anyone get divorced and moving on

    I don’t see anyone bashing LeAnn Rimes

  75. BW says:

    Essie – I agree with you, except I wouldn’t mind seeing them walk down the red carpet at the Oscars. Your comment about them “ignoring the rubbish” which “drives the ragmags crazy” is so true, and nobody ever mentions that. BP and AJ never demand a retraction and never sue the tabloids and I think the tabloids are just about going nuts at this point, making up and hurling anything they can, just to get ANY kind of reaction out of them! And it truly is driving the ragmags crazy, judging from the frequency of all the nutty stories that are appearing lately, and the ridiculous content. I hope BP and AJ continue to hang tough and not respond to the crazy, made-up stories, but it must honestly be difficult to see all that garbage written about them. Maybe they don’t read that stuff, like that interview somebody posted says. More power to them if they don’t!

  76. For Sooth? says:

    Spin, spin, spin, spin. Oh how I love the spin they’re in.

  77. nana says:

    thats the point… sageAdvise… let us let her go because she made her statement way back 5 years ago and everybody are still here speculating on what would they do next about the things rag mags are creating. you see, on this blog alone people talk if they attend of not or they split or not or they adopt or not or they love each other or the bunch bunch of predictions as if they are fortune teller and are even experts of body languages. everyone heard them long ago but the mind are closed and they are still the favorite food of the town to talk about. i have let Angie go long ago and wished her happiness and now i see her raising her family and so I am not expecting her to do things to satisfy my wants and her to explain because she already said her part. for those who cant remember are those people who were not informed, and those who are still hungry of the illusions made by the rag mags, talks shows and blogs. it polluted the minds of the people making them thirsty of gossips. so those are her statements for those who CANNOT remember.. for those who are not aware so they CAN MOVE ON.

  78. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “I don’t see anyone bashing LeAnn Rimes”

    then you must not visit here very often.

    read any thread of which she is the subject, you’ll read LOTS of bashing.

  79. Godzilla says:

    The thing about selling out your soul and private life to the media on the way up, is that you can’t get them back once you’ve made it. Boo-Hoo Brangie!!
