The unlucky celebrity this week is
I know, I know. This is not a Team Jen/Team Angie thing here. My frustrations with this woman are based on her behavior and the examples she has set for her children.
The article in US Weekly details Angelina's tactics for "stealing" Brad from Jennifer. Sources were supposedly close friends of hers - which I realize aren't always the most valid sources - who recall her using Maddox to win Brad's affections, planning opportunities for paparazzi to catch Brad with her and various other trickeries.
When Brad and Jennifer first separated, Brad and Angie both swore repeatedly that they were not having an affair, Brad leaving had nothing to do with Angie, etc. Then - surprise! - Brad is photographed on a beach with Angelina and Maddox (which was one of the supposed planned photo ops). Jennifer is crushed, fans are shocked, hate mail comes pouring in.
Later Brad and Angie both make remarks in interviews about how they fell in love while shooting Mr. and Mrs. Smith (when Brad and Jen were still together). This lets their children know that if you want someone, it's okay to pursue them, even if they're already married.
Adding insult to injury, they further embarrassed Jen by setting up a photo shoot with W Magazine, portraying a happy 60s couple with blond-haired, blue-eyed Brad clones running around them.
Even worse was that news broke about Angie's being pregnant with Shiloh before Brad's divorce from Jennifer was even finalized. It was like Angelina was doing everything she could think of to sink her claws into Brad and make certain he wouldn't get away. I wouldn't put it past her to have gotten pregnant on purpose. I mean, seriously, she's crazy. We're talking about the same woman who had questionable closeness with her brother. Eww.
To be honest, most people weren't surprised with Angie's going after Brad. After all, she's hooked up with practically every male costar she's ever had. (Does anyone else remember the whole Billy Bob Thornton's blood in a vial around her neck fiasco?)
Why Brad would even consider leaving America's Sweetheart was just beyond me. I couldn't wrap my head around it. I mean, sure, Angie's HOT. That scene in Wanted when she gets out of the water and you can see her entire backside and all of those tattoos...
But Jen? Sweet, adorable Jen?
So as I'm writing, I'm starting to think maybe I am taking sides here. I can't help it though. I love Rachel Green. She's awesome!
Anyhoo, to make my point - which I so carelessly wandered away from, what with all of the naked pictures of the two sexiest women in the world - Angelina should be less concerned with proving to everyone that she and Brad are happy, and more concerned with the example she's setting for her children.
I don't care how much goodwill work she does (although I give huge kudos to celebrities who actually care about world issues and put their fortunes to good use), if she doesn't instill good morals in her children, they'll grow up to be liars, adulterers and vindictive people.
So, Angie, I'm giving you a small - but still effective - face punch.
