BRAD PITT’S MIRAVAL CHATEAU WINE LOST ITS APPEAL

When it comes to wine, it appears that Angelina Jolie has more status than her ex-husband, Brad Pitt. During their marriage, Brad and Angelina launched their winery, Chateau Miraval, with a rose wine that became an instant status symbol. As their popularity as a couple grew, so did the price of the wine – it got so expensive at one point that retailers like Trader Joe’s stopped carrying it. Well the marriage didn’t last, and Angie sold her interest in the Chateau and winery to a Russian oligarch and apparently it’s no longer as in demand as when it was affiliated with the attractive couple. Case in point: it’s back at Trader Joe’s selling for less than HALF of what it did a few years back. A wine industry source explains that when unproven allegations of violence came out against Brad during the divorce, the brand got tainted and lost its popularity among its formerly loyal female clientele.

KATE MIDDLETON’S SECRET SURGERY REVEALED

This could be one of our biggest scoops of all time! As the world wonders why Kate Middleton is hospitalized and recovering from an undisclosed abdominal surgery, our inside source revealed this: The popular princess recently underwent predictive genetic testing and was discovered to carry the gene that could lead to diseases in her ovaries. After much soul searching, she decided to undergo elective surgery and had a hysterectomy. It’s the same surgery Angelina Jolie had to prevent cancer. And Kate has a plan. After she’s fully recovered she intends to go public in a very big way and become the face of predictive genetic testing and intends to campaign to make the tests free of charge for everyone. Our source insists that Kate has NO disease yet and she only underwent the invasive surgery as a preventive measure.

ANGELINA JOLIE REPURPOSES AND RECYCLES IN HER NEW STORE

Angelina Jolie and her son Pax were seen visiting her new store at 57 Great Jones Street in NYC. Rent is high (asking price $60,000 per month) because that graffiti covered building was once the art studio that Andy Warhol rented to Jean-Michel Basquiat. Angelina opened her fashion studio called Atelier Jolie featuring deadstock, vintage clothing and fabrics, and basics ready for instant alterations and re-design. Staffers are mostly students from Parsons School of Design. Angelina admits she might lose money on this fashion venture…

ANGELINA JOLIE IS IN CONTROL OF THE SITUATION

When it comes to paparazzi, Angelina Jolie has the situation totally under control. It’s no coincidence that whenever she leaves home she looks immaculate. (We LOVE that she’s not wearing black today) It’s also no coincidence that she is always accompanied by one or all of her children and looking like a devoted mom. It’s obvious that she has a special paparazzi friend (maybe one in New York and one in LA) that she notifies when she’s going somewhere and in the mood to have flattering pics taken. The photographer is HAPPY to have exclusive photos of her and she’s always smiling. She KNOWS it’s important to be visible for her career and CHOOSES to call the shots. You won’t see her complaining about paparazzi or ducking. Of course, she could also be sending a message to her ex Brad Pitt, reinforcing that she and the kids are living happily ever after – without him.

BILLY BOB THORNTON: YOUR PANTS ARE FALLING DOWN!

Little did we know…that Angelina’s Jolie’s ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton is in the middle of a summer tour with his band The Boxmasters – it will finish up in Europe in the fall. He always did prefer making music with his electric rockabilly/blues band to making movies. (One of the reasons why Angelina left him) But what’s with the PANTS? Doesn’t that falling down pants look belong to RAPPERS? We couldn’t resist poking fun at his style…

WHAT DID BRAD PITT LEARN FROM JOHNNY DEPP?

We’ve always been Team Brad when discussing the Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt divorce. As of now, they are both legally single, but not yet divorced- in fact, the divorce has gone on 3 times as long as their two year marriage! It may never end. They keep dragging each other into court for one thing or another- custody of the fast-growing kids, the French winery etc. Angelina is constantly -and deliberately- photographed on outings with each child, appearing to be a devoted mother, as she insists that Brad abused her and his children. We were startled to learn that Brad has the SAME powerful PR team used by Johnny Depp to save HIS reputation. Granted, we appreciate that Brad has never said a negative word about Angelina, but he might have something to hide if he hired those PR people…

HEY, MACHINE GUN KELLY – HOW ABOUT A KISS?

Last October, Angelina Jolie showed up at the premier of The Eternals wearing a gold metal band that connected her lower lip to her chin. It was NOT a dental appliance. No one had seen such a piece of jewelry before and universally wondered if she could speak normally or drink or eat while wearing the thing. Turns out it’s called a custom lip cuff and was made by Nina Berenato, a jeweler in Austin. Machine Gun Kelly was the next to show up in a lip cuff – and his was considerably more extravagant and featured Dolce & Gabbana’s initials. We STILL don’t know if he can talk or eat while wearing this silly thing…but at least it’s removable.

SHILOH JOLIE-PITT IS A FEMALE VERSION OF HER DAD

Can’t help but wonder what Brad Pitt thinks about the metamorphosis of his daughter Shiloh. When he and Angelina were together, they were very accepting of Shiloh’s desire to wear boys clothing and they even called her by a boys name when she insisted. During the past year, Shiloh turned 15, got the braces off her teeth, and started growing out her short boyish haircut. But she was NEVER seen in a dress. UNTIL, that is, Angelina started promoting her new film Eternals on red carpets everywhere. Shiloh has been by her side, dressing up a little more each time, and shyly enjoying the attention. She looks just like her heartthrob dad and has gradually started experimenting with makeup and hairstyles. With her looks, she could easily become a model or actress…

NEWSFLASH! SHILOH IS WEARING A DRESS!

Angelina Jolie brought five of her six kids to the premier of The Externals at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood and their are TWO things of special interest in this photo: First of all, Angelina has some sort of gold metal jewelry that goes from upper lip to chin. Is it attached to her skin? A new piercing? Don’t know. What we DO know is that 15 year old Shiloh is looking a whole lot more feminine. Yes, that’s boyish Shiloh in the beige abstract dress and white flats, looking pretty. Her longer hair is up in a twist and she has just a LITTLE makeup on! This is a BIG step for a “tomboy” who wore boys clothes and wanted a boy’s name just a few years ago…

ANGELINA JOLIE WANTS KIDS TO KNOW THEY’RE BEING CHEATED

Angelina Jolie slipped out the backdoor of the Skylight bookstore (located not far from her home) after being mobbed by hundreds of eager fans. She has cowritten a book with a civil rights lawyer aimed at young people called Know Your Rights and Claim Them: A Guide for Youth. Angelina is an advocate for children around the world and wants them to know they have rights, but will this help girls in Afghanistan get educated? Certainly Angelina has good intentions and her celebrity will help sell some copies of the book, but we can’t figure out how kids living in countries with awful political situations can change things… we’ll just have to read the book.
