#338154 Brad and Angelina

Posted by witchkitten on 12 June 2018 - 06:47 PM

I have no problem believing that Angelina Jolie is engaging in parental alienation. Those poor kids. Theyre the ones that will be hurt the most. I dont think Brad is a saint either but the kids deserve to have a relationship with both parents without interference from the other.


#337981 British Royals

I'm sure the dad is no father of the year given that he has two older children who are incredibly messed up, and he was estranged from Meghan for a good chunk of her childhood IIRC, but I do think the British press is being harder on him than he deserves. To my knowledge he hasn't done anything like his older children, and in response to the nastiness of the British press Buckingham Palace put out a statement asking them to stop so I don't think he's as bad as he's being portrayed. Again, he doesn't seem like a great father either but he and Meghan did form some sort of relationship after their estrangement and she does/did intend to have him walk her down the aisle.

Congratulations to the couple. I wonder who this child will resemble. I see both parents in George, but I see more of Kate in him. Charlotte looks so much like Queen Elizabeth. I don't see much Kate in her, or William for that matter but she clearly favors his side of the family. I loved the dress Charlotte was wearing to meet her younger brother.

Reading on Twitter that Trump Jr cheated on Vanessa with Aubrey ODay. Eek!


Not surprised. The apple doesnt fall far from the tree.

I think of prenups as insurance (I didn't have to sign one because hubby and I have been together since before he had any assets so all assets are both of ours, IMO). You don't get auto insurance because you think you're going to have an accident, or house insurance because you think your house will burn down, but in case it does happen you want to protect yourself. Hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

 

ETA: I'm also sure that as a Royal he has to have some sort of legal agreement about finances and such before marriage. Either he has a prenup or he has some other legal documents that do the same thing.




#337620 Celeb Death Watch

Im not going to mourn Billy Grahams death. He was antisemetic, and IMHO did not deserve the praise he got. Not only was he antisemetic but when he was confronted by others he denied saying anything and was believed until nearly a decade later the Nixon tapes were released and he was recorded saying all sorts of vile things about Jewish people.

Bristol Palin's husband files for divorce - not even 2 yrs... https://www.msn.com/...6a7P?li=BBnb7Kz
 
(and already 2 kids with him, plus the 3rd from old relationship. Maybe get some birth control and just go have sex, instead of getting pregnant and "having" to marry inappropriate men. Family values indeed...)

Bristol Palin is a poster child for whats wrong with abstinence only sex education. It doesnt work as demonstrated by every single study on the subject.

ETA: My apostrophes keep disappearing when I post from my phone. I swear they were in there.


#337523 Oscars 2018

Posted by witchkitten on 26 January 2018 - 03:27 PM

I haven't seen any of the films in the top categories either. It used to be that the movies nominated were also the most popular movies. With the exception of last year, that hasn't been the case for a while. Granted, I have two small children and have seen only two or three movies in the last year (two of which I saw at home but were recent releases thanks to movies coming out fairly rapidly after release nowadays) but even before children I rarely saw more than one of the films nominated for Best Picture and often I hadn't seen any. I've heard good things about Lady Bird and plan on seeing it when I can rent it through iTunes/Amazon/etc.. The title of the movie is confusing though. When I first heard about the movie I thought it was about LBJ's wife (famously nicknamed Lady Bird) and I'm not the only one I know who made that mistake.

This Matt Damon interview is just rage inducing. He is the perfect example of why sexual harassment and abuse has been allowed to go on for so long in our society.

#337122 Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts I & II

Posted by witchkitten on 19 October 2017 - 08:29 PM

Our theater ran out of season tickets this year (the package that included Hamilton) so I thought I wasn't going to get to see it, but we were still able to get seats for a couple hundred each, which is expensive but not outrageous. I have friends in Los Angeles who said the only tickets left were the $600 seats. Although, I think initially there were less seats available when I first looked. The seats we got weren't there when I looked before they came to our city. I don't know where the new seats came from.




#337087 Harvey Weinstein

Posted by witchkitten on 10 October 2017 - 01:46 PM

Also - I call BS on all these people that rebuffed his advances. Angelina would do anything to stay relevant, and sleeping with Weinstein is a minor inconvenience

 

Agree completely. It's been long rumored that Gwyneth Paltrow was cast in Shakespeare in Love because she slept with Weinstein. I believe her part was supposed to go to Winona Ryder. 

 

ETA: Also, I see a lot of actors and actresses are defending themselves by saying "I never saw any of these behaviors", which is probably true. I doubt Weinstein was raping women in front of A-listers, and I find it plausible they didn't know all the details, but they knew he was crossing the line even if they didn't know how far, and for them to pretend like this is some shocking revelation is ridiculous.

Harvey Weinstein is disgusting. I'm glad he's finally being outed.


#337051 You Must Remember This Podcast

Posted by witchkitten on 03 October 2017 - 10:40 PM

Has anyone else been listening to this? It's a podcast about Hollywood's first century and it is by far my favorite podcast. it's definitely worth a listen to for anyone who's interested in Old Hollywood or Hollywood history. The podcast is currently between seasons and I can't wait for the next season.
