Oddly Prophetic Angelina Jolie Quote From 1997

I stumbled across this Angelina Jolie interview in Girlfriends Magazine circa 1997, back when she was married to Jonny Lee Miller and was doing press for the movie “Foxfire.” I found a bit that was oddly prophetic:

Heidi Fleiss’ Parrots Remind Us A Lot Of Mike Tysons’ Pigeons

Heidi Fleiss has a new love in her life. Make that ‘loves,’ as there are more than 20 of them. Almost 18 years after going to jail for three years for running a prostitution ring, Heidi has started a new kind of harem—a legal one. In recent years (in addition to opening a laundromat, a…

Evening Quickies: Kat Von D Pens Facebook Rant: “What Can I Say? I Suck”

Kat Von D posted a Facebook Note last night entitled “What can I say? I suck” about storming off a TV interview yesterday when she was asked about her broken engagement from Jesse James.

Rosario Dawson On Airbrushing: “None Of Us Look Like That!”

Prince Frederic Gets Zsa Zsa Gabor A Billboard For Their Anniversary

Awww, Zsa Zsa Gabor’s ninth husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt is such a romantic. We were not behind his plan to make Zsa Zsa a mother at age 94 (while she was in the hospital) by using an egg donor, artificial insemination and a surrogate. But we do approve of his plans for their 25th…

Doctor Calls Mommyrexia An “Upper East Side, White Girl, Obnoxious Problem”


I was totally digging this doctor on “The Today Show” who talked — okay, ranted — to Ann Curry about the constant pressure on women to be skinny, including during pregnancy. “Mommyrexia” is when pregnant women cut back on eating or add excessive exercise to their regimen because they’re worried about gaining…

94-Year-Old Woman Whoops A Kangaroo’s Ass

Over the weekend, in Queensland, Australia, a kangaroo named Eddie busted out of a gate and attacked a 94-year-old woman. Our first question: “Why was a kangaroo in Australia behind a gate anyway?” We’re not big fans of humans messing with wild animals (RIP Steve Irwin), but there is an explanation.

Dating Dos: Please, These 5 Romantic Gestures Need To Stay!

Romance is dead.
