    As far as that alleged interview with James, one key to its authenticity is whether People picks it up. People does not have a habit of posting the made up crap that the tabs claim. They do report the legit stuff.

  • what?

    Why is it that on the ‘kool aid’ blog many insist that Angelina is back in Nola with her kids while Brad & Shiloh are in LA. They are insisting that people magazine said it.

    The very fact that US is referencing the Daily Mail further proves that they have nothing on the Jolie-Pitts. They jumped to the wrong conclusion about Angelina’s demeanor at the GGs and now they’re attempting to use James’s name to lend credibility to their so-called story.



    Also U.S. Weakly is the very same rag that ran with the crazy kidnapping story of Angie by another tabby. And of course, when they found out the story wasn’t true — the so-called editor goes on about how it could happen.

    Anyone that quotes tabliods as the gospel is just asking for trouble IMO.

    PEOPLE said nothing of the kind. In fact, Angelina is quoted in PEOPLE as saying Pax’s adoption will not be complete until her WHOLE FAMILY IS TOGETHER .

    Ask them on that blog to provide info where PEOPLE printed the lie they are pushing. That they can’t do. Whereever they all are, ALL SIX JOLIE-PITTS ARE TOGETHER. COUNT ON IT. THEY WILL SURFACE WHEN THEY ARE GOOD AND READY TO DO SO.

    You lost me at “many insist”. So, now Shiloh is NOT Angie’s child but only Brad’s? Okay, got it, good to know.

    Ida and Mondo Bongo—thanks, but take any credit all I do is post it here, I wish i had the talent to make these videos, but if I did mine would be all X-rated and youtube would flag it for adult content :lol:

    I am sorry since I gave the link to Pittwatch yesterday where the James interview was posted. I should have been more careful before posting it, but since it was at a blog I go to (Pittwatch) all i did was give the link.

    ITA—- unless from a legit source, just like Pax’s mom lies we can’t believe anything to be facts….

  • ida

    its ok guli people like you and i know the truth.the only problem with the media is they have not seen the jolie pitts for days now, so they just make up stories to keep them on their useless so proud of how they control their one knows where they are all the gabbage news is just speculation.and the big chin fans are the ones trying to keep the lies alive, but it will not work

  • guli

    Excuse me, I don’t want to sound sarcastic, but I would never go to a blog called “kool aid” let alone believe what they post….. So just ignore it since its bunch of lies just like NE, Star, US weekly etc…..

  • kk1

    Whenever there are no pixs of the Jolie-Pitts for a while, the vultures spread their wings and do their best to broadcast unhappiness and lies. They just do not learn from all their past failed efforts to somehow wedge this family apart. Angelina and Brad make their own independent decisons and do not telegraph those decisions to the world at large until they want to. They are taking the time to bond with Pax, and to strengthen their family ties out of sight of the media. Angelina was last seen last Wednesday March 21st leaving Vietnam, and Brad has not been seen since the pixs taken on March 15th. Those close to them shield them well.

    Jolie and Pitt to wed, says report
    Sunday, March 18 2007, 22:27 GMT

    By Dave West
    Angelina Jolie is to marry Brad Pitt at Easter, a report has claimed.

    The couple, who recently adopted another son, Pax Thien Jolie, will wed in the Dominican Republic, according to the Daily Star.

    They are said to have fallen for the island in the Caribbean while Jolie was there to film The Good Shepherd.

    A source explained: “While they were in the Dominican Republic, Brad bought a huge tract of land and helped to design a fabulous house.

    “It’s there they intend to become Mr and Mrs Pitt. They were first photographed there as a family and the place holds so many special memories for them.”

    According to the report, Vietnamese Pax and Cambodian-born Maddox will be page boys at the ceremony. Zahara, from Ethiopia, and Shiloh, born to the couple, would also be present.

    Wedding Planning Tips for Angelina Jolie
    Dear Angelina,

    Ignore the fact that this will be your third marriage and Brad’s second

    Have an elaborate wedding ceremony and reception this time. After all, you are supposed to be celebrating your happy relationship with Brad. (Jolie’s first two wedding ceremonies were so casual she wore leather pants to her first and faded jeans to her second. Read more about Angelina Jolie’s wedding attire here)

    Make Maddox and Zahara part of the wedding ceremony

    Brad isn’t just marrying you – he is marrying you and your children. So include Maddox in the ceremony by making him the ring bearer (No matter what size your wedding ceremony is, this is a great way to include him in the ceremony festivities.) And ask someone close to you to carry Zahara down the aisle. (Just because she isn’t old enough to walk on her own doesn’t mean she shouldn’t have her own special moment – captured by photos – of a very important day in her life as well.

    Wear whatever color you want.

    Feel free to even wear white to this wedding. But since you wore pants to your first two wedding ceremonies; why not wear a long skirt or a beautiful long dress for this one. You can even wear champagne or ivory colored attire and make this a semi-formal or formal affair.

    And of course, if you have any questions about wedding planning, you can contact me at

    Thanks guys. You know I call that blog ‘Kool Aid” because they believe that what they are reading is truth. Some eople think that Kool Aid is a nutritional drink.

  • PinkRose

    The issue of Pax’s birth mother wanting him back, although not true, shouldn’t not even have been posssible. The orphanage released too much info about his birth, his mother’s circumstances, date he was left and where etc. etc. That made no sense…it was not called for and could easily allow parents to identify him as their boy, who abandoned him permanently to rethink their abandonment, now he has a rich family.

    The very media that spread the details around the globe will help to find the mother and bring her to America just to have a story. They don’t care who they hurt. they did the same garbage with Madonna’s son and the father. They put words into his mouth and became the conduit of false information all round causing “bad blood”. The media should stay out of adoptions. These are real people, real lives, real emotions.

    In the Navy, Kool Aid has been used to clean the stainless steel toilet and sinks aboard ship. It works good on that.

    I was not sure what you meant by the Kool Aid blog. I assummed you meant the place where immature, irrational haters discuss Brad/Angelina/family.

    hi everyone!!

    don’t know if it was posted, anyway :

    Pax Thien’s biological mother could not get baby back

    19:43′ 26/03/2007 (GMT+7)
    VietNamNet Bridge – Any information that Pax Thien Jolie’s mother intended to demand her baby back was false, said Tam Binh Orphanage’s director Nguyen Van Trung in an interview with Saigon Giai Phong newspaper.

    According to Mr Trung, before Tam Binh Orphanage officially adopted Pax Thien Jolie, or Pham Quang Sang, the orphanage tried to find Sang’s relatives through a newspaper ad, but there was no answer within 30 days. Sang thus was legally an orphan. Accordingly, it was the orphanage’s director who signed the agreement to give Sang to his foster parent, not any grandparent or parent of his.

    So is there any legal foundation on which Sang’s mother can ask for her child back? Mr. Trung said such a thing was absolutely impossible.

    “Not mentioning that Sang’s mother didn’t claim her baby when the orphanage advertised in newspapers, the fact that she abandoned her child is enough to hold her accountable before laws, let alone demand her child back!” he said.

    Mr. Trung also said that after Angelina Jolie signed the paper with the HCM City Department of Justice, Pham Quang Sang officially became her child.

    “If, in the future, Sang’s biological mother comes to the orphanage, we will only provide her with such information as that Sang has been adopted, and where and how he lives. As for demanding Sang back, it is absolutely impossible,” the director said.

    Before the adoption, Sang went through testing at the HCM City Pasteur Institute, which affirmed that the child was completely healthy, HIV-free, and free of any liver problems as well as other contagious diseases,” he said.

    WoW! That was sweet to see all the Brangalinephiles just shaking their Lara Croft playstation games in anger over my comments! I might have been hasty about my “higher IQ” comment on the birthday post???

    And No… I am not a Jennifer Manniston fan, she is an idiot for hooking up with loserpitt in the first place, and No… I will not be waiting “forever” for the implosion.

    For those of us here OVER the age of 14, you would know… Couples that are overexposed in the media ALWAYS fall victim to their own overexposure, and always come spiraling down from the clouds in fire…

    And It makes me cry tears of joy to see when folks who are blinded by the media hype, are the first to come running to the defense of the overexposed when someone DARES to have an OPINION that differs from the media hype.

    But thats ok… The real question arises when a weblog owner begins banning “dissent”… So I guess Jared still believes that freedom is still valuable in a world where the “mainstream media” historically supresses dissent…

    Ergo, Jared is the only one on here to be cheered by any of us…

    They are probably the same people who came here the past two weeks insisting that Angie would not come back to the US because she had left Brad, but go with her kids to Europe. They are the people who believed US Weekly when they claimed that Angie had gone with ALL (Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh) to pick up Pax and so that meant that she had left Brad. I remember going on a blog when I first started looking for information about Brad/Angie and went to a certain board and was reading the earlier postings about Angie/Brad from when they started their relationship. The rumors and such that were flying about them, more specifically, the timelines that were being drawn on their relationship was just too much. The funny thing was that the timelines started becoming longer and longer as the months progressed. I even read one that had a poster be so sure that A&B would be done by October of last year because of course Angie would get bored and tired of Brad and it would be time for her to move on. October came and went and the timelines started becoming a year, two years, three years, and the longest one I read was six years. Too funny. The thing people need to realize is that Brad and Angie are unpredictable and they are not going to follow any script you lay out for them. They are going to follow only their script and tough luck to whoever doesn’t agree.


    Woof… something thinks she’s a Bond villain.

    “AmFAR is moving its annual Cinema Against AIDS dinner from its traditional Thursday night perch to Wednesday night to make way for Steven Soderbergh’s red carpet premiere of “Ocean’s Thirteen
    Yes, that means Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Ellen Barkin and friends will also be crowding the Croisette, the long narrow avenue that separates the magnificent hotels from the actual beach. (Yes, there is a beach!)

    And if Brad’s coming, Angelina Jolie is not far behind. Her movie about the murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl is also under consideration for a Cannes preview.”

    I don’t know why no one has answered you jolierocks and if you are a ahter in disguise then I apologize to the regulars for answering. But anyway the answer is no……Pax was abandoned and no one knows who is birth mother is. I wouldn’t doubt that all sorts of women are going to come out of the woodwork claiming to be his mother now that he is known all over the world and because of who his preants are now but I seriously doubt any of them are telling the truth. Even if his birth mother did come forward and some kind of DNA test were done to prove it she would not have any rights because she abandoned him. Personally as a mother I think that is the worst thing you can do to your child.

    ITAWY. Forget that a child and that child’s new family ties are fragile and the family is just beginning the bonding process. Too much info was given out to the world media by those in Vietnam. I imagine that the processing of Pax’s Vietnamese paperwork was sped up by a couple of days (I had read that Angelina was expected to stay in Vietnam until March 24th when she first arrived) when the paps descended on Vietnam and the authorities realized that the provision of all what should have been confidential info might endanger Pax and other children at his orphanage. I do not believe that those in Vietnam, still pretty much a closed society, had ever seen anything like the hoards of paps. They have now learned a valuable lesson, silence is truly golden. Vietnamese officials will probably now emulate the American Consulate actions in Hanoi, give out no info as it is none of the paps business, and may impose tighter restrictions on the paps. Those pixs of paps throwing things under the car with Angie and the two boys in it to stop the car and get pixs was beyond anything that should have been allowed to happen.

    I too expect long lost family members to appear out of the woodwork even though NO ONE visited this child for THE ENTIRE THREE YEARS AND THREE MONTHS THAT HE RESIDED IN AN ORPHANAGE, and am very happy to hear that according to Vietnamese law Pax’s adoption is final. That’s how it should be.

    oh! Because other relationships in the media have failed, your judgment is not concrete enough. Yes, there’s a possibility that Brad and Angie may walk that route one day just like any normal relationships, but you should be open minded. The minute you come out saying, they will walk that route and place them in the same shoes as other failed relationships in the media, is the minute I can tell you that you’re close minded and have short thinkings. Another words, you’re stupidity and the ability to analyze is completely abnormal. True, some relationships in the media have gone separate ways, but you have no guarantee that brad and angie will. Every relationship and couple is different. I have analzyed and have seen Brad been with many relationships and I have seen Angie as well. These two people are most honest and loyal people in all their past relationships, but their partners aren’t in the same page with them. With Brad and Angie being and have always been loyal and honest in their relationship, I’d do see that they will go to the extents to work it out under any circumstance (s) to save their relationship. These two have similiar interests and goals, which in their previous relationships don’t. They love children and they always push and support each other to be and do better. They challenge each other to do better and I am sure they compromise as well, depending on circumstance (s). In any relationship I believe if both can challenge each other, is a healthy and good relationhip. Excitements and and a turn on is there, how can anyone anyone get curious, c’mon!!! As a competitor myself, I don’t like to lose and will continue to strive for the better physcially and mentality, but with limits, knowing when to draw the lines, which I believe is exactly what Brad and Angie do as competitors. The respect and love one another! SO I DO BELIEVE THAT YOU WILL WAIT FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ITA with you. It irritates me when birth parents are given 2nd/3rd/4th chances when it comes to regaining the children that they lost/gave away. The problem is that most western countries don’t follow thru with the permanent part. I just saw on the news that a child with Down Syndrome drowned in the bathtub after being returned to her birth mother; the child was removed due to unsanitary conditions in the household and the place was still a shambles when the child and her other siblings were returned to their ‘mother’.

    I still wonder if the Corpse Bride will get her two kids back, despite sleeping in while her two year old kid ran bare-footed down an Indiana expressway.
