Angelina Jolie and Brad PittBrad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are either breaking up or getting married. One or the other.

Rumors started making the rounds that they were breaking up when Angelia showed up single for her latest adoption. Apparently, this was necessary to finalize her adoption of 3-year-old Pax in Vietnam. They don’t allow unwed couples to adopt a child.

But since the adoption, she has filed papers to have Pax’s last name changed to Jolie-Pitt so that all the children have the same last name. So now there are rumors of marriage …. again.

Apparently, all is well in the Jolie-Pitt household (households). Tune in tomorrow for the next rumor.

Los Angeles (E! Online) – So much for the splitsville stories.

Further cementing her happily coupled status,
Angelina Jolie has filed a petition to officially change her newly adopted son’s last name to Jolie-Pitt, giving him the same surname as Maddox, Zahara and Shiloh.

Jolie filed the papers Apr. 16 in Santa Monica Superior Court. (View the court documents.)

When all is signed and stamped, the three-year-old’s name will be Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt. Jolie welcomed him to the fold last month, signing up as a single mom because the child’s native Vietnam does not allow unwedded couples to adopt.

But while she presented herself as a singleton for legal purposes, the move also fueled rumors of possible trouble in Brangelina land.

Then again, what move of theirs doesn’t? They’re either breaking up or getting married.

Brad Pitt is expected to take action to adopt Pax, and he obviously has no qualms about sharing his name. Maddox and Zahara became Jolie-Pitts in January 2006 and Shiloh has been one since her birth May 27.

Jolie said in the months following Shiloh’s arrival that, while more biological additions remained a possibility for her and Pitt, they would be more likely to adopt before going the pregnancy route again. In March, she denied tabloid reports that had her and Pitt tying the knot in the Dominican Republic over the Easter holiday weekend.

The philanthropic couple have been splitting their time among Los Angeles, a new home in New Orleans, film sets and, of course, various goodwill destinations. Before traveling to Vietnam, Jolie visited Chad to meet with Sudanese refugees and subsequently ended up cutting a $100,000 check to build a new medical clinic in the war-torn nation.

Then, despite saying she wanted to take a few months off to be a stay-at-home mom to Pax and the rest of her brood, the Oscar winner signed up to star in the big-screen adaptation of Mark Millar’s graphic novel Wanted. Filming was set to begin late this month.

Next up, the fruit of Pitt and Jolie’s recent creative labors, the Daniel Pearl biopic A Mighty Heart, which Jolie starred in and Pitt produced, will have its premiere May 16 at the
Cannes Film Festival, where it will screen out of competition.


This falls under ‘WHAT were they thinking!!’

Remember ruggedly handsome Mickey Rourke? For some reason he didn’t seem like the type to be so vain that he’d have himself mummified in unsuccessful attempts to maintain his looks. Too bad. I would have thought his looks would have aged well. Instead, he looks like he belongs in a wax museum. Does his skin look raw to you or is it just me?

And what about Kate Jackson? Charlie’s Angel Kate Jackson? Somehow her eyes have gotten slanted and her face is out of kilter.

Of course, there no ‘celebrity bad plastic surgery’ post without including Michael Jackson, Kind of Pop and Bad Plastic Surgery. His forays into plastic surgery have been chronicled throughout his life. He has gone from cute kid to monster-esque adult.

Kellie PicklerKellie Pickler was voted off American Idol during last year’s season. She didn’t win the contest, but like so many other years the runners-up become more famous than the winners.

Kellie Pickler was a very attractive contestant last year. She was bubbly and had an innocent, small town girl act that was a tad over the top. She was funny and fun. I saw her doing a show on the red carpet one time. I don’t remember what show it was, but she was doing a commentary on the celebrities as they walked the red carpet into the event. She was hilarious and entertaining. I continued watching it just because she was fun to watch.

It looks like hollywood decided that Kellie was talented and marketable too. It looks like handlers have gotten ahold of her. She has changed from the carefree funny girl with a Dolly Parton-Type voice into …. I’m not sure what she’s turned into. It seems to me that she is making an effort to exude the persona that came naturally just a year ago.

The very characteristics that were charming, endearing and made people like her are being ‘handled’ out of her.

It’s really too bad.
