The Post Gazette says that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie took time out from making cobra proof clothes to take a tour of Fallingwater, the famous house in southwestern Pennsylvania designed in 1935 by architect Frank Lloyd Wright.  The daytrip was part of Angelina's birthday present to Brad, who turns 43 next week.  Cara Armstrong, Fallingwater's Curator of Education, said:

"Brad said he had wanted to experience Fallingwater ever since he took an architectural history course in college.  He and I talked quite a bit about design and art. He was incredibly well informed about architecture.  (They were) very gracious and very engaged in the house. As we say in the Midwest, you could tell their mothers raised them right.  Brad said he had a visual sense of Fallingwater but experiencing it in person, hearing the sound of the waterfall cascading under the house and smelling the wood from the fireplace, was better than anything he could have imagined."

After the tour, Jolie had champagne and caviar sent in, which the couple shared in a private birthday celebration in Fallingwater's living room. Afterward, they invited the staff to join them.  "He's so hard to buy for," Jolie told the staff.

If these two were any cuter, Angelina would have given birth to a baby panda in a little cowboy outfit.



A CHRISTMAS WEDDING?

By brendon December 08, 2006 @ 11:41 AM

The Daily Mail and OK Magazine say that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are planning a Christmas wedding in a small village outside Johannesburg, South Africa.  The Mail says:

"They are treating their marriage like a spiritual affirmation and don't need big Hollywood glitz like Tom Cruise had in Italy."   The ceremony will include traditional African music and will be "simple and elegant", a friend of the couple told US magazine OK!   "They are so much in love.  Brad and Angelina have waited a long time for this chapter in their lives to unfold."

Guests are expected to include Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie, George Clooney and new James Bond Daniel Craig, as well as Oprah Winfrey, who suggested the African village where the ceremony may be held.

An insider said: "Ange is grateful to have a big sister in Oprah, a person who understands her fears of commitment but is also a kindred spirit."

God it never lets up with this chick.  Africa Africa Africa.  Yeah, I get Angie, you're better than I am.  You want to help.  But Brad just wants to fuck you.  That's why he never did this stuff before.  So stop dragging him all over the globe to the worst places on earth every time theres a problem like you're the superfriends.  The dude is crossing rivers of fire and fighting flying dragons just to prove himself to you, would it really kill you to give him a weekend at Pebble Beach, in a town where the "just married" limousines are actual cars and not just the biggest turtle.

AL-QAEDA THREATENS PITT AND JOLIE

By brendon November 03, 2006 @ 9:44 AM

In February of 2002, Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was beheaded by al-Qaeda militants in Pakistan.  His body was cut into ten pieces and then thrown in the dirt.  All of this was captured on a video released by al-Qaeda entitled, "The Slaughter of the Spy-Journalist, the Jew Daniel Pearl".  Now Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are making a movie based on the life of Pearls widow, and hey, you'll never guess what group of gutless animals aren't happy about it.  The Financial Express says:

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie … have been provided with Y category security due to threats to their lives from the al-Qaeda, Intelligence Bureau sources said in New Delhi on Thursday.  The stars were on a private visit, otherwise the security could have been further tightened, said the source.   British security experts were flown to Pune earlier this week, after being alerted by Pakistan because of the bad publicity the film would give to al-Qaeda in the world.

I'm not sure how much of this I believe.  Everyone from that part of the world is simply delightful.  They love to laugh, those people.  A hearty laugh and a fine scotch by the fire, that's what I picture.  Or maybe just dinner and a movie with the wife, or Pictionary during game night with the family.  And they never ever hold a grudge or lash out for no reason.  "Que sera sera", you'll often hear them say.  "Live and let live", that seems to be their motto. 



STUFF FROM ALL OVER

Angelina Jolie is adopting an Indian baby, "to add to her growing international brood", according to the Daily Mail.  Sources say that Jolie and Brad Pitt have already applied to adopt a baby from an orphanage in India, where they are currently working on the film "A Mighty Heart".  A source said, "They hope to be able to bring the child home by Christmas".

God, this house is gonna be a disaster.  24 hours a day – the Arab baby trying to strangle the Israeli baby,  the African kid hunting down the cat, the Chinese baby balling up socks then making whistling sounds and bombing the Taiwanese baby, flaming arrows and tomahawks flying across the room, one of the kids in a cage.   God damn that would fun to watch.  

 

Tyra Banks is getting too fat to host "Americas Next Top Model", at least according to the executives at CW.  Tyra has been instructed to lose weight immediately or she will be replaced as host for next season.  A source says, "Tyra still looks good, but she's put on close to 50 pounds since starting her talk show … things are really getting out of control.  I mean, she doesn't have the greatest personality, so if she starts getting too heavy, it could be a real problem for the show."

Damn.  Because nothing would be better than seeing Tyra pointing with a big giant turkey leg during the line up part, telling the aspiring models what to do and how to act if they wanna be a big success.  Like Tyra.  And then Tyra dips the turkey leg in chocolate. 

 

And Evangeline Lilly is just up here because she's cute and wet and the page has been pretty fug lately.



SHILOH IS REALLY FREAKIN CUTE

By brendon October 24, 2006 @ 11:37 AM

If you need any more proof that God is a dude, just remember that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had a girl.  The pope should open his Christmas mass with that.  Just say that and then hold up the Tomb Raider poster.  And then say “Is good, I like”.  And he should say it like Borat.  Because people like Borat.  Churches would have a line out the door.  Brad Pitt could wear a little Dorothy costume for Halloween and prolly be the third hottest chick I’ve ever seen.  So add that up and you get Shiloh.  And she looks pretty freakin cute here, in these pictures taken this week, either in India or the gas station I go to where they yell at me if I ask to use the bathroom.

JENNIFER ANISTON LOSES AGAIN

By brendon October 20, 2006 @ 12:19 PM

Many are wondering if this may finally be the year Martin Scorsese wins an Academy Award for directing "the Departed", the best reviewed movie of the year so far and a genuine box office hit to boot.  If it does win Best Picture, one of the producers to claim a statue would be Brad Pitt, as his company Plan B productions produced the film.  Pitts former partner at Plan B would not win an award.  That would be Jennifer Aniston, who owned half of the production company when "the Departed" was made but lost all rights in the divorce settlement.  Aniston got the mansion in Malibu, Pitt got Plan B.  Fox 411 says:

Jennifer Aniston's name has been erased from the list of producers since she and Brad Pitt split. It was their company, Plan B, that was originally involved, along with producer Brad Grey before he left to run Paramount.  The result is that Grey and Pitt's names stayed on, even though they did nothing to make the movie, and Aniston's was dumped.  "Brad controlled the credits," a source says, which explains a few other things.

This would maybe seem cruel, except I don't like Jennifer Aniston and don't really care.   And it would be fun to see her cry some more on Oprah if she didn't get an Academy Award.  God knows this was her only chance.  I asked my tivo to record "Rumor Has It", and instead it ran away in the middle of the night.
