    I’m simply not fond of Oprah in the least bit her comment long ago about her grandmother would be so damn proud of her having whites working for her was sickening. Well wake the fu** up you dumb black woman you were never a slave and neither was your grandmother. There were so many white slaves also maybe not like black but they still deserve to be mentioned. Black people sold black slaves but that’s always overlooked. Why the heck do they carry a car load of anger over their shoulder when they’ve never endured slavery nor their great grandmother? Slavery has ended whether they want to believe it or not. Couldn’t imagine Angelina every making a reference like that.

    The Jolie is on top of the World !
    On top of her game. She is iconic, successfull and has reached the balance in life.
    She has it all professionnally & personnally : Oscars, versatility in her career, money, longtime partner, children, the ability to manage her spare time like she wishes, the time to read, learn, visit nice places, making love to Brad Pitt….
    She has the beauty, the brains and the luck : She is the total package and already accomplished in every aspect of her life.
    She has already her professional legacy with awards and movies who are already classics and the best passeport for internity : her children. The best testament of her legend status in the making : starlets who already want to emulate her.
    The Jolie is unstoppable. her legend is underway..

    Angie is a real role-model for young women. She has demonstrated that you can have bumps in your life, but never give up, stay involved in life in a positive way, give to others, work hard and you can overcome those bumps and thrive.

    EXCLUSIVE: Rep: Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie Split Reports “Absolutely Not True”
    Wednesday June 3, 2009

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are not splitting up.

    Pitt’s rep tells reports the couple were about to announce a breakup are “absolutely not true.”

    Adds Jolie’s manager: “Not true at all.”

    A source tells the newest issue of Us Weekly: “They have their fights and moments, but generally things are good. They are happy — and Brad loves being a father!”

    The National Enquirer reported Jolie and Pitt — together since 2005, when he separated from Jennifer Aniston — were going to announce an “official” split, and could face an “ugly court battle” over their $200 million and custody of their six children.

    Check out adorable photos of Brad and Angie’s kids — including the twins.

    The Enquirer says the deciding moment was a fight at the Cannes premiere of Inglourious ********.

    But a witness there dispute tension reports, telling Us: “They had lots of fun and looked so in love. At one point, they were dancing.”

    Congrats, Angelina and Brad ( not that you care about that list anyway).
    The jenhens are fuming because their idol Filler Face couldn’t top Angelina in spite of all her shenanigans last year (hooked up with Peeboy twice, broke up with him twice, posing nuude on mags, mentioning Brad and Angelina in all her gazillion mag interviews). Not to mention that Filler Face was the darling of tabloids portraying her every week as the good girl done wrong, while Angelina got all the smear. In the end it still doesn’t matter, does it? Mismanagement is still a mega stinky bomb at the box office. Last weekend it did worse than Jessica Biel’s movie even though playing in more theaters. Go figure.

    I still don’t think Angelina cares one way or the other. She’s loved by billions and people love her.
