    Thanks, raqchel.
    She brought life back into the label.

    piper, with a low:
    Nice to see you, here!
    I agree – she will continue to do great film!
    She’ll probably be more picky now, though. That is why she chose to do the animated and CGI ones because this left flexibility with the scheduling.

    Yeah – quite unfortunate about the Vietnam officials(this must be their first exposure to such media-frenzy). They must have been excited with all the attention.

    Also, did a bit of web-surfin..And, the overwhelming news is VERY SUPPORTIVE of the JoliePitts!!
    The adoption families have come out in support of her! Yayy!!
    This is understandable since they, first-hand, understand the treacheries of the adoption process and moreover, the international ones are so diverse in how together they are.

    This is the most that they can come up with, and this is REUTERS:
    Title: Adoptive parents of Vietnamese look beyond celebrity
    Some choice quotes -
    “The real concern should be the future of the child, not who the parents are,” said one French single mother who adopted her son from Vietnam in 1994.
    “Is it a crime to give money to an orphanage? Could we forget the fame and just think of the child?” she asked.
    Jolie and pop star Madonna, who is in the process of adopting a baby boy from Malawi who currently lives with her in London, have been criticised for using their celebrity status to bypass laws. But this puzzles many parents.
    “Whatever is going on in the Jolie-Pitt family is none of your business,” one blogger, identified as Sandra Hanks Benoiton wrote on
    Psychotherapist Beth Dobrish and her husband Jeremy of Maplewood, New Jersey, in the United States adopted a baby girl from Vietnam last year and found the process complex.
    Dobrish said in an email to Reuters that international adoption is “very problematic in many ways, with a lot of people doing their best.
    “I like to believe Angelina and Madonna are doing the same. I don’t find their actions any greater or worse than any average person adopting,” she said.
    Others say the state-run system is corrupt because of a multi-layered process that involves agencies, central government, provincial government, police and orphanages
    Outside the justice department building where Jolie signed adoption papers on Thursday, a Vietnamese mother, Nguyen Thi Thuong, 39, had high hopes for the boy’s future.
    “It is lucky for him. It’s wonderful to be adopted by someone really famous. You can have a good life,” she said.
    These are REAL people supporting Jolie!

    **.John chairmen Jim Kelley summed up recent events, “We lost our way for a while with the product. We’ve got the business back on track. Things are proceeding really well”.

    Kelly Gray, daughter of **. John founders Robert and Marie Gray and former creative director, announced that she is rejoining **. John this week.

    “What I missed most about **. John was not working with my father. He trained me from when I started there, from when I was 12 over my summer vacations until I became creative director and president more than two decades later,” she said recently. “I am excited to be back as a creative consultant. And no, I’m not going to be back in the ads,” she told WWD
