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.

CAN YOU AFFORD BRAD PITT’S FURNITURE?

 

When he’s not acting or producing, Brad Pitt dabbles in various business ventures, including rose wine (Miraval) and cashmere clothing (God’s True Cashmere)  Now he’s hoping to expand his empire into home furnishings.  Brad’s always been fascinated by architecture and design ( we’ve seen him at various Modernism shows in Los Angeles over the years) so now he wants to design furniture and accessories.  He’s working with European craftsmen and hopes to market his upscale items later next year.  Don’t get your hopes up – his price points are expected to be for the top 1%. REALLY expensive. Think $1500 for a small vase and $15,000 for a chair. That counts ME out…

A FACE IN THE CROWD

Look closely and you will spot a Major Movie Star in the crowd at the Grand Prix 2023 in the UK this week. Brad Pitt is sporting some fetching new highlights and looks hot in his Formula 1 white uniform- he’s filming scenes for his new untitled racing drama there. He plays a winning driver from the 90’s who had a horrible crash and disappeared for years, but surprised everyone with a comeback. His costar Damson Idris (also white uniform) plays a young competitive driver. It’s not our cup of tea, but we hear that this film will have some Tom Cruise quality hazardous driving scenes…

JENNIFER ANISTON AND BRAD PITT WILL REUNITE ONSCREEN

 No grudges here. Exes Jennifer  Aniston and Brad Pitt are getting remarried, but ONLY on the big screen. Early in their marriage, Brad guest-starred on Friends and he and Jen hoped to eventually costar in a movie, but they divorced in 2005 before it happened. The closest they came to becoming costars was in 2020 during a Covid 19 fundraiser where they joined other celebrities in an online read of Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Nice to see that this pair had a civilized divorce and have morphed into fabulous friends. Brad decided the time was right to finally do a movie together which his company, Plan B, will produce. He and Jen will play an unhappily divorced couple in the rom-com who are forced to remarry in order to inherit a fortune. The script is being tweaked and they hope to begin filming this summer.

BRAD PITT’S LUCKY NUMBER

It’s hard to imagine but according to a friend, the usually sensible Brad Pitt is actually superstitious – with 12 being his lucky number. Pay attention… Brad was nominated for his first Oscar for 12 Monkeys, then in 2012 was nominated twice for Moneyball before finally taking home the coveted award a few years later for 12 Years A Slave. Brad even has “12” discreetly tattooed on his body. He recently confided to a friend that he and his then-wife Angelina Jolie originally planned to have 12 kids. Speaking of kids, the insider says Brad is definitely open to having more. He’s been dating 30-year-old jewelry designer Ines De Ramon for months now and they’ve already had the talk about babies, with Brad saying he definitely wants more.

COURTNEY LOVE SAYS NO TO BRAD, YES TO MACHINE GUN KELLY

Courtney Love made headlines by griping that Brad Pitt got her fired from the movie Fight Club because she wouldn’t allow Brad to do a movie about her ex-husband Kurt Cobain. Years ago it was rumored that Brad wanted to play Kurt in a biopic, but without Courtney’s approval, the project never happened. What Courtney ISN’T saying is that she is still interested in doing a movie on Kurt, but wants Machine Gun Kelly to star! The idea is still in the early stages of development but Courtney feels if a movie can get made within the next year or two, MGK is perfect for the part.

BRAD PITT HAS A KNACK FOR DESIGN

There’s a perk to being a friend of Brad Pitt. He loves to advise pals when it comes to doing renovations to the interior of their homes. Brad has been very interested in architecture and design for years and has worked extensively on his own houses. A female friend decided to update her main bathroom and Brad offered to design it. She was thrilled and let him do whatever he wanted, but the result was “surprising.” $80,000 later she found herself with a huge “wet room” – a totally waterproofed room of tile and concrete with no separation from the shower. It’s quite modern and minimalist, but VERY masculine, with little regard for mirrors or female frivolities. The woman was so excited to have a bathroom designed by Brad Pitt that she puts up with all the stark inconveniences…

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…

IS EMILY RATAJKOWSKI GETTING EVEN?

SOME Hollywood divorces are not destined to be friendly – or for that matter, easy. It’s clear that model Emily Ratajkowski was flabbergasted when she found out that her husband Sebastian Bear McClard was apparently guilty of cheating and other unsavory activities, and she filed for divorce. Very subtly, she’s been “punishing” him ever since. Seems like every day we see new paparazzi photos of her all dolled up and looking fabulous. Your read here about her wisecrack that her husband “thought he was a 10 because he pulled her- but she happens to like UGLY men.” NOW the rumors about Emily and Brad Pitt are swirling, but keep in mind Brad’s relationships with women have been strictly undercover during his divorce. SOMEBODY is spreading these rumors- (which no one is denying) WHO could it be?

BRAD PITT AND CLARK GABLE HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON

When we first saw Brad Pitt with Ana de Armas on the red carpet for the Marilyn Monroe movie Blonde, we thought he might be playing Clark Gable in the film. Turns out he was the producer, but it would have been good casting. There IS a resemblance and Brad is the same age Clark was when he starred in The Misfits with Marilyn. It’s rumored that Monroe contributed to Gable’s death. She kept him waiting day after day in the hot sun on location for the western, while she fretted in her dressing room. When the movie wrapped, Gable said “I’m glad this picture is finished – she damn near gave me a heart attack.” The NEXT day he DID have a heart attack, and he died ten days later at the age of 58…
