    @ Rose: I am fine thx and you? Thanking you for clarifying the two Jimmy’s. I only saw his name and that he was a talk show host and that he was in Cabo with JustJen. I didnt even notice his last name since he is with JustJen and I don’t click on her links.

    Rose also wanted to add to yesterdays question about if Brad misses the “The Dark years” which PT so rightly described them as. I would say they were the “Pitiful years with a hag”. I bet Rose know looking back and what’s been happening with Tickys stalking him I bet Brad would erase those years from his memory & life if he could from the attention seeking Ho.
    -
    But in life we make mistakes we get up dust our self off from the dirt we gathered and carry on with our head held high and don’t look back we go on to achieve bigger and better things that life has to offer us. Brad as you see has gone on to bigger & better things in life with a glowing future with his wife & children besides him making daily memories together, these happy times outweighs all those bad times he had 8 years ago my dear Rose. So your answer to that is he most DEFINATLY DOES NOT miss the dark & pitfall years.

    @also: Hi also, how are you? I’m not into the talk shows that much but I know about them. I believe those guys, Leno, Dave, ect makes millions of dollars. Didn’t one of them made like 100 million to give up his spot?, not sure. PT knows about these things.

    Btw, what’s going on with Taylor Swift always going after these high school boys. Now she has two more songs to write, one for Connor K and one for Harry Styles. This maybe her plan, date as many boys and get material for a new hit song. I’m never ever, ever going to stop dating 18 year olds. More money for Taylor, lol.

    PT there was an underlying reason I wanted you to see that article as in their innocent way they counted the trail of men that Tickys been down & under for the pasy 8 years. Any way maybe Ticky’s big on Mount Rushmore literally and don’t forget she’s got a big one her self so “you can interpt this any way you like PT” lol.

    @Phool: One of Ticky’s friends said in an interview, that Brad acts as if Ticky don’t exist, so maybe that is why she went on “attack Angie” bender for seven years.
    I almost felt bad for her when she was a wreck on stage in front of them, and they sat there smiling, but then she put herself in that position.

    Lawyers for Justice in Libya and the Jolie Legal Fellows Program Celebrate the Conclusion of Rehlat Watan Constitution Tour
    -
    Lawyers for Justice in Libya (LFJL) joins the Jolie Legal Fellows Program in celebrating the successful conclusion of the Rehlat Watan Tour, part of the Destoori Project. Destoori aims to educate Libyan citizens on the constitution-making process, to engage public opinion, and to create a connection and sense of ownership between the Libyan people and their constitution.
    -
    “We are very proud of Destoori and the opportunity it has given us to reach out to Libyans across the country, in every region, and to speak to Libyans about their genuine concerns, their fears and their aspirations for the constitution. We believe that Libya’s constitution must be written by all 6 million set of Libyan hands and represent the voices of all Libyan citizens. Rehlat Watan has brought us closer to that goal,” said LFJL director Elham Saudi. Angelina Jolie added, “I am thrilled that the Jolie Legal Fellows Program is partnering with Lawyers for Justice in Libya and the Destoori project to bring the conversation back to Libyans’ desire for a constitution informed by the will of the people.”
    -
    In addition, LFJL is thrilled to announce that Ms. Huwaida Shibani, a Libyan lawyer, was chosen as the first Libyan Jolie Legal Fellow. Jolie Legal Fellows are lawyers and attorneys sponsored to advocate the development of human rights in their countries. Huwaida’s activities will focus on promoting the development of an inclusive constitution and ensuring that human rights provisions are complied with. “Huwaida is an exceptional woman with an indomitable passion for human rights. I am hugely excited that she will be our first Fellow in Libya. She will achieve great things for her country,” said Jolie.
    -
    Huwaida has been accompanying the Destoori team on the Rehlat Watan tour as a Destoori guide. Rehlat Watan is a nationwide constitutional tour that has visited more than thirty Libyan communities in order to raise awareness about the importance of the upcoming constitution and to poll their opinions. The tour would not have been possible without the support of the Jolie Legal Fellows Program.
    -
    “We are proud of all the support we have had for Destoori, including that from the Arab Human Rights Fund, The Global Fund for Human Rights, The Oak Foundation, The Open Society Institute, The Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, and our collaboration with the Jolie Legal Fellows Program. Their support made the Rehlat Watan tour possible and the partnership with the Jolie Legal Fellows Program has marked an important and unique opportunity for a very talented Libyan lawyer to join our team,” remarked Saudi.

    No, I was being facetious last night but I think some people took me litrally. I don’t think Brad’s mother is still in a state of shock that he’s non-religious. I bet it’s one of those things they just agree to disagree on and don’t talk about it. BUT…playing Pontius Pilot is a bit odd choice for Brad. The script must be really good.

    Don’t know why you got thumbed down…but ITA that Brad doesn’t want to work for WB – UNLESS it’s a great role, he co-produces and they butt out. This is sort of like when he pissed Universal off by dropping out of State of Play…Uni bad-mouthed him and tried to put the blame on him when he had script-approval and hadn’t approved the script and wanted to wait for the writer’s strike to end so it could be cleaned up. Look what happened after that – Brad had a “play or pay” contract and they had to pay him $20MIL even though he didn’t do the movie. Then Uni had to go crawling to Brad when Tarantino wanted him for IB. Brad was only in about 1/3 of IB and they had to pay hm $9MIL + 10 backend points. And then State of Play with Russell Crowe flopped like Kobe running into Amare Stoudemire in the paint. Brad got the last laugh on Uni and now WB has come sniffing around again. Maybe Brad’s just toying with them. LOL!

    True dat. He DID work for Variety for donkey years, you know. I guess old habits are hard to break. He’s always dropping Huvsy-leaked “exclusives” on Ticky, too. Like anybody GAFF that she’s trying to drum up work by announcing POSSIBLE projects that everybody and their dog knows have a snowball’s chance in Hell of getting made.

  • Passing Through

    BTW – Last night before I went to bed someone posted a story that Howard Stern has gone over to the dark side and was hanging out with Ticky in Meh-hee-co. Another talk show host bites the dust. Howard is friends with Handjob. I’m sure Handjob told him he was being unfair to Ticky and what a great gal she is – and now Howard’s doing dinner with her. Ticky has no pride whatsoever. Why would anyone want work so hard to changing the opinions of people who have negative opinions of you? Just say, “Fvck ‘em” and move on. But, nope, not Ticky – Handjob, Perez, Kimmel and now Howard Stern. I’m surprised she hasn’t shown up at my doorstep yet. Maybe if I made my living from ragging on her…but I don’t so I don’t have to worry about shattering the lenses in me new specs by clapping my eyeballs on her in person. Thank God…cuz glasses are expensive as hell…

Maybe if AJ was one of those celeb who responds to sh!te folks say about her, then it would be worth while with all the recruiting she is doing. But AJ ignores everyone.
