Angelina Jolie usually gets talked about for the things she does, but regarding the Golden Globes, she’s now being talked about for what she DIDN’T do. She didn’t wear visible jewelry. The jewelry industry was bitterly disappointed by the shortage of ostentatious chunky diamond necklaces and earrings at the event. And they were particularly upset by Angelina’s simple, toned down look of long sleeves and no glitzy accessories. Industry insiders are terrified that it will catch on and it’s bad for business. Jewelers really depend on red carpet exposure to stimulate sales.

    Hideous, drape-like dress…

    She needs to eat a large burger with a side of fries. But, in her brother James own words….”Angelina seldom has an appetite”. (a good appetite is a sign of generally good health). The dress is about a size 2 and she had to wear a cover-up dress to hide her bony skeletal shoulders and back.

    She is a friendless, husband snatching, insecure, children hoarding tart.

    @ Walt: Yep, and more. And, imho, the “more” is when she admitted she is still attracted to women; she has no morals whatsoever. I hope lover boy can see thru her sooner or later, but he is dumb *(tho very rich)* as a brick and more whipped down by her and the 6 brats as time marches on.
    Sooner or later she will collapse from exhaustion and lack of proper nutrition. In fact, word is she has fainted 2 or 3 times.

    Rumor has it she’s still on drugs. I dont get her apeal … her face is odd and alien like.
    As for the jewelry, it seems actresses havent worn jewelry for many years….maybe rings and bracelets, thats it, pretty boring.

    maybe she didn’t wear glitzy joiree as a reflection of the times.

    I miss the glitzy jewels too. After all, we, the ordinary people will never get a chance to wear those stunning pieces, the least they (the rich actors etc) can do is wear them for their audience, who made THEM rich. The public wants the glamour at these awards shows, that’s why the arrival shows have grown so popular. I miss the Liz Taylor types who dripped in jewels and finery. And La Liz wore her own which was even more exciting.
    I remember Jolie wore huge emerald drop earrings at one award show not so long ago, so don’t know whats up with her here. And I do think she is way too thin. I’ll bet there is practically nothing left in that bra of hers except maybe some silicone “chicken cutlets”.

    Indy: I don’t know what’s up with you, but lately you seem to be getting more and more intolerant to your fellow humans.You say:
    “when she admitted she is still attracted to women; she has no morals whatsoever.” Are you actually saying that those women who are attracted to women have no morals? What the HELL is wrong with you? Lucky for you you were not born gay, for I’d hate for you to have to feel the hate you encourage in others. Are you so backward that you don’t realise how dangerous that kind of vitriol is to the people who actually live in that life? Wow, I’m sure glad I don’t follow whatever your “good” book says if that’s the idiotic beliefs it produces. SOMEONE needs to pray for YOU.

    But Reta, I thought Indy was your friend? Lonely to be on the high moral ground here I guess Eh. LOL!
    Angeline has alien dna.

    For the love of God Reta, there are fabulous fakes at most department stores. Buy yourself some faux diamonds in glamorous styles and LIE when anyone asks you if it’s real.

    As for Angie, the only thing I like about her is that she doesn’t dress like a slut. It’s nice to see a long sleeve gown for a change over all those gross slip/strapless numbers all the other bimbos wear.

    Who knew industry insiders are so neurotic, terrified because she didn’t wear jewelry. They clearly need to venture outside the industry more. Switching things up once in awhile keeps life interesting. I’d think predictability, especially in the entertainment industry, poses the greater pitfall.

    Angelina likes jewelry, she and Brad gave Mindy Cohen a cheap, by their standards, $5,000 diamond ring. Brad’s got so much baggage that no sane woman would want him.Really, would Jennifer want him back who’s constantly got to father 6 kids?

    This dress needs no jewelry in fact, it would be too much. It is also my understanding that the jewelry stores loan expensive pieces for stars to wear. If they don’t extend the loan, then they shouldn’t complain. Or perhaps we’ll see more expensive jewelry at the Oscars?

    Atheists think this way, they can’t help it.

    Furthermore, Brad Pitt also has no morals. But even he I think would be upset if he caught his lover with Jenny Shimizu, a long time lover. Ang has said herself in two interviews (Diane Sawyer and Baba Wawa) that she is a free spirit and does what she wants, and if she is attracted to a female at that moment she would go for it.

    Wouldn’t a decent man be upset if his wife or girlfriend was caught with a lesbian?

    Not an AJ fan. Enjoying all the jokes she’s FINALLY getting. No ones deserves total public scrutiny than someone who tries to get the New York Times to sign a confidentiality agreement. Duh!

    I liked that dress better when Joan Collins wore it on “Dynasty.”
    Note to Angie: Eat a sandwich. You look like death.

    The Church of the Smugly Superior Christian sounds intriguing. Where do I sign up?!?

    Angelina looks gorgeous!! She could definately stand to gain a few pounds though.

    I guess it would be kind of foolish to believe that these movie stars are perfect.

    Wow, anyone that thinks this woman doesn’t have a fabulous figure must be part of the 67.5& of the U.S. population that is grossly and morbidly overweight, constantly stuffing themselves with cheap beef and fries full of antibiotics, growth hormones and trans-fats, washed down with fast-food milk shakes made of industrial waste. She’ll outlive you all!

    In RE to my last sentence above: I thought this statement would at least be given a good common sense approval (leaving out commandments, morals, religion, Bible, etc). But I guess that sentence is not even good common sense in this crazy upside down world. So, there’s nothing left to say……..maybe. Ciao for now.

    I don’t think she is attractive in any way now. Her face always looks totally waxy, her limbs are like a skeleton’s, covered in hideous tattoos, her hands look like claws. I do believe she is still on drugs, no normal person passes out constantly. Lord knows once Brad Pitt got with her he lost any attractiveness he ever had.

    Angie has pretty much lost her looks. She looks like a functioning skeleton on Heroin. She is the great pretender but her game is wearing thin.

    I used to like reading and participating here but you people have taken this column down more than one notch. I see some of you at other sites and, like those people at Radar, you’re totally different. Who’da thunk it?

    DITTO to what Seriously ? said. LOL I KNEW I’d seen that dress before somewhere !

    She is beautiful and the loving mother of SIX F’ING KIDS!

    She is really really undernourished; a rag mag claims Pitt is getting her into some kind of program to help her get built up. I’m not saying it’s true, but this was in print. She is skinny, waist is tiny. When she wears a sleeveless top, her arms are stick thin.

    Palermo: I agree with everything you said. You know, Brad openly smokes weed, so I’m sure she does too, which is kind of confusing as I’d think she’s get munchies at least and maybe to eat some tofu at least. She’s much skinnier now than ever, the tats are hideous on her bare arms and back. Big mistake as far as her beauty goes. She seems to have gone downhill in a constant slide since her mother’s death, to the point of this, now, which doesn’t look at all attractive any more, even covered, she can’t hide the real look of her. Makes me wonder if she doesn’t ever see a doctor herself and doesn’t ANYONE ever tell her to EAT?! After all, she does have children to raise and being that thin is dangerous, esp for the heart and organs.
    Huge padded shoulders and yards and yards of glittery cloth can’t camouflage what’s underneath. Not much. And what IS there I wouldn’t want to see naked for anything!

    PS:Lady C: No problem, I actually have quite a bit of my own jewelry having owned an antique store for 11 years, and also designed jewelry for 5 years. I used to buy wholesale in downtown LA for my store, at the jewelry mart there.
    So, please don’t worry about me dear, I’m happy with the baubles I have and am not “hurting” for bling if you will.

    Just think it would be nice to see the glamour like the “old Hollywood” in dress as well as jewelry. There were certain women who could always be counted on to BRING IT when out in public anywhere and really turned it up at awards shows and premiers. That period is lost now and the jewels stay locked in the deep vaults away from admiring eyes, and don’t even get out once a year anymore it seems. Too bad, I love the sparkle!

    Hard times for antiques.
    Kids just want IKEA shit nowadays.
    Nice gig Reta. I love the stuff.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
