    Woo hoo!

  • Observer2

    Those pics are great, especially, the photo bomb one.

    And Sam Riley is back as Divail!

  • Gemini675

    Sam is back along with the rest of the amazing cast. Angie is looking so happy. Oh and Roseanne has been cancelled. A great start to the working week.

  • Erianthe

    Does she ever take a bad photo???? LOL. Very cute photo of both of them. BTW, is this the latest thread?

  • Erianthe

    OMG!!!! Roseanne showed her true colors — all racist and ignorant — and her show was promptly cancelled. What is wrong with her???!!!

  • cee

    So lets see the kids are all with Mom. Tabloids are WRONG again. I think Brad and Angie have things worked out and are just taking their time with the divorce. Maybe just giving each other more time to adjust. Nice!

  • Beedyq

    Yes!

  • Beedyq

    Yes a truly happy day!!!!

  • lyric

    So happy Malificent is finally starting to film. 🤗

  • Beedyq

    She acted exactly as she has always done.

  • Observer2

    I said on the other thread, did Roseanne, not know who her bosses were at ABC?

    The President of ABC is Channing Dungey. The first African American woman to hold that position.

  • Observer2

    Yes to your entire post. LOL

  • Erianthe

    Give it time and the show will be picked up by Fox or CMT or some other right wing channel/network.

  • Beedyq

    I really don’t want to bring this up but… is that one of Angie’s rings on her left hand finger 😔 I can’t help it. I want confirmation. I have believed from the beginning that Angie or Brad never wanted a divorce–and will never get divorced. 🙏

    Observer2 JPlove • 14 minutes ago
    The one on her index finger looks like her gold wedding band. Not saying that it is. LOL
    She’s wearing a Maleficent ring, it looks like on her ring finger. And by that, a part of Maleficent’s wardrobe accessories.

    Beedyq Observer2 • 5 minutes ago
    I’m gonna agree with you.
    And a gold band ring has not been seen on that hand before since 2016….hmmmm

    Hopefully, they won’t. They need sponsors to pay for the show.

    Cee please read People magazine below:

    Jolie’s return to the live-action Disney villainess marks her first onscreen appearance since her 2015 role in By the Sea. The family-friendly set is filled with kids as Jolie’s brood — Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara 13, Shiloh, 12, and 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivenne — are all doing their work in a school trailer.

    The actress and activist has kept busy since with her humanitarian work and directing 2017’s First They Killed My Father. She’s also executive produced movies like the Oscar-nominated animated film The
    Breadwinner.

    Hopefully, the other actors will drop out if it does get picked up. Wanda Sykes quit as writer/producer.

  • bap

    Very happy about Sam returning!

  • Erianthe

    BTW, I haven’t had a chance to read through all the drama on the other thread, but I understand that you were being attacked. I’m sorry for that and I hope that does not dissuade you from posting.

  • Beedyq

    Roseanne thought as she has always that she would ride this out with drumpfie’s love and those of fellow racists.

    But ABC/Disney had enough and acted swiftly to cut ties with her.

    Feel for the rest of the cast and crew but this last behavior crossed the line, there is no excuse.

    @Maleficent

    #Maleficent2, starring Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, and Michelle Pfeiffer, is now in production.

  • Beedyq

    Angie and Elle both look happy 😉 😊

    I am so looking forward to this film….

  • Erianthe

    Ahem. No comment:). OK just one comment. I like that we really don’t know what they’re up to. Let it be that way. Let them work out what they need to work out in stealth mode. I’d like the tabs to keep their focus on other celebrity drama — like the latest Roseanne fiasco.

  • Observer2

    I saw that. I also think that is why Whitney Cummings quit last week as a contributor/producer. She had a behind the scenes position. Roseanne’s appalling behavior.

  • Beedyq

    Fox is salivating at the thought of having this as part of their propaganda..that will be no surprise.

  • Observer2

    No. Someone crossed a line with me that you just don’t cross regarding me and my father and implying a hateful thing regarding my care of him.

  • Beedyq

    Some will step up, perhaps like the NRA.

  • toastie postie

    Yes!!!! I would have been very disappointed. Very.

  • toastie postie

    Yes! You bet! great news today! My Sam!!!! My Dival! My baby!

  • Beedyq

    Whitney Cummings already quit as the showrunner last week…

  • Erianthe

    Yeah, that would get me too, considering how close I am with my family. I’m sorry that you had to endure that. Would not want to lose your comments on these threads:)

    Angie looks really happy. Must be something Brad did. Ooops! I meant … the kids. She must have had a great time with the kids. LOL!

  • Antgo

    the new pics of Elle and AJ…ooohhh so f##ing CUTE!!
    I just cant stop grinning right now

  • toastie postie

    Hi, Lyric!!!! Wonderful day! And I was fixing to take a nap but thought to check my homepage for news on Angie – woo hoo. Doing my Cabbage Patch Dance!

    Those two have such chemistry together.

  • Observer2

    Thanks for your kind words and support.

    They’re not going to run me off. No matter how much they want to. Been here a long, long time.

    I’m being accused by that person that I made them say such a vile thing or imply such a vile thing.

    I know for a fact, I was standing there with a gun to their head or to a loved ones head. And they didn’t say that anyone else was either.

    No one makes you do anything.

    BTW, Toastie, if you like Sam Riley and it’s obvious that you do, you should check him out in an indie film — Control. It’s about Ian Curtis, lead singer of Joy Division. Was not a big Joy Division fan, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE New Order. Sam is the lead in this movie and he’s pretty good.

    I never watched the show because of her. I’ve never found her funny. And she’s always been this way.

    I feel for the cast too. For many of them, this has been much needed work that they weren’t getting for a long time, e.g. Becky, D.J., and Dan.

    Whatever is happening behind the scenes, it’s good that they’re keeping on the DL until it’s all been decided in ALL ways.
