So I read the item about Angelina Jolie (AJ) is upset that Jennifer Aniston (JA) is "poking her nose into family matters". And laughed.

I guess seducing someone else's husband isn't interfering in their family matters. Nope, not at all....

Glass Houses. Stones. She needs to get over herself.

And not while I want to watch it, I was waiting to see if Britney would get wise to her options on the sex tape. Gotta love it ;)

I think the world would've been better off if the OJ book and show deal had gone through. That way, when the show draws that 0.0 rating, and the book doesn't sell at all, the media would've gotten the hint that we don't care about this sort of garbage.

As it stand now, someone else will try it again down the line ("If I Did It..." by Robert Blake?)

Why in the world would anyone (celebrity or not) play "You've lost that Loving Feeling" at their wedding reception and then think that it was cute/appropriate/whatever to serenade his bride with that song? Oh wait! it's that crazy-in-love Tom Cruise! Run, Katie, Run!

Not only that, but the guy can't sing.

Duh! Of course J Lo brought her own stylist -- without a stylist, everyone would see her for the overrated, no-talent ho-bag that she is.

Of course I don't know the details of Jennifer Aniston inviting Brad's parents to her Thanksgiving dinner. It may be that Brad and Angelina and kids are going to be doing charity work in Africa during the holiday and Jen wanted to do something nice for her former in-laws. But the truth is that they are "former" in-laws and it's a bit strange to invite them to a major holiday meal when her ex has remarried and has kids with the new wife. Unfortunately, Jen does not have her in-laws grandchildren as a reason for the invitation, so it just looks, well, sad. Is Pitt an only child? Do they have nowhere else to go? I wonder if this is even true. And if it is, Angelina should just keep her dignity and not comment, because she DID interfere in Jen and Brad's marriage and she'll just have to accept that he had a first wife who remains close to his parents.

pnina, clearly only tom cruise would sing it, and clearly it's bc of Top Gun. not that crazy, although it is crazy that katie was about four when that movie came out.

I am ECSTATIC about the potential for Brit's free sex tape, though!!! PLEASE don't listen to any nay-sayers in your entourage, Brit -- RELEASE IT, AND FOR FREE!!!

If it is true that Jennifer Anniston invited her former in-laws to her house, I am not surprised. Brad's family is very closed to Jennifer and Brad's sister invited Jennifer to her wedding from what I read.

Yes, you can have a positive relationship with your former in-laws. My sister will be having Thanksgiving with her former in-laws (they get along better with my sister than the new wife, and no, the ex-husband & new wife are not invited).
I guess it is all part of the "new" American Family.

For Trixie -- Brad and Angelina aren't married. She is his baby mama, therefore, not a daughter-in-law to his parents. And just because you divorce your spouse, it doesn't automatically mean you severe ties with your spouse's whole family. There are plenty of people who continue those friendships post-divorce. But this story smells fishy -- if his parents were planning to come to Thanksgiving with Brad and the baby mama, why the heck didn't they know they weren't in town?

Scarlett Johannsen would be wise to get her facts straight before opening her yap. W is not trying to ban abortion in all states; at best he's trying to overturn Roe v. Wade and return the issue to the states. Some would ban, some would permit.

re: Tom Cruise singing to the little wifey

Eeewww - how old *was* she when that movie came out?

Posted by: Maritza | November 21, 2006 11:29 AM | Report abuse

My point was that just because "You've Lost that Loving Feeling" was in Top Gun and Tommie boy was the star doesn't make the song appropriate for a bridal serenade. Wasn't there a song called Take My Breath Away in that movie also? I don't recall the lyrics but that might have been a more loving song to Katie. Oh well, this couple has gotten more of my attention then they deserve.

Come on, people.

Tom singing "You've Lost the Loving Feeling" is AWESOME.

If you remember that scene in Top Gun, it was where he was picking up "Charlie". It was suave, it was dapper, it was funny.


Jeezus Christ, let the guy have some fun.
It's an entertaining thing to do and I'm sure everyone there thought it was hilarious. (especially if he did it out of the blue like in Top Gun)

maybe it's the only Scientology-approved song to sing to one's bride....

"Take my breath away" would be just as bad, maybe worse. He cannot sing. Ugh.

If the ho-bag homewrecker is steamed that her baby daddy's parents, who apparently had never been informed that son and ho-bag wouldn't be around, are in town and have dinner with ex maybe she should do a better job of communicating and building a relationship with them. Seize control of you life, ho!

I had to read about the Ripa-Aiken smackdown elsewhere! What is this blog coming to?

Posh & JLo doing lingerie? Ladies who can barely dress themselves appropriately are planning on telling regular sane people what to wear under their clothes?! Delicious.
How awesome is it that Tom brought his best man/spiritual advisor/boyfriend on his honeymoon?! It's so 21st Century, Scientologerrific!
Please god, let Britney keep her panties on -- my biggest fear when any girl starts hanging with Paris is that she'll start thinking that going panty-less is a good idea. LiLo is bad enough, but Brit is a mother -- it's bad enough those kids will have to explain their father to all their friends, but add cooter shots of Mom, and we're talking about future serial killers now. I mean, whenever Brit decides that dancing around in her fishnets isn't tacky enough...
