I hadn’t thought about this before.
Fox News reports that the money Hello! and People magazines paid for the Knox and Vivi pics — between $10 and $15M, depending on whom you believe — will actually go directly to charity. Not first to Brad and Angie, and then to charity, but directly to the Jolie Pitt Foundation.
This means that the money is actually a tax write-off for these magazines.
Which means that, after you consider the tax implications, what they really paid for the pics is considerably less.
I’m just saying.
Okay, so People.com is fucking up BIG TIME by not having the pics on their website when they said they would, but at least Hello magazine — who got the British rights to the pics — have a pic up on theirs.
So … meet Knox and Vivienne!
I cannot remember the last time I bought an issue of People magazine when I wasn’t about to board a flight. I will, however, be rushing to my local newsstand on Monday to purchase a copy of the magazine, which will reportedly contain thirty pages of photos of the new Brangelina babies.
Some initial photos will be on People’s website on Sunday, at 7 pm EST, but goddammit I want to thumb through all thirty pages. I want to see those fucking twins in every pose imaginable. And for $14M (the reported price), they sure as shit better have photos of those babies playing with puppies. Like, really little puppies. I am calling the Better Business Bureau if there are no puppies in this spread.
Oh and you wanna know what’s extra exciting, guys???
I bought a printer/fax machine a couple weeks ago, and it turns out that the damn thing has a scanner! I learned that when my friend was staying with me earlier in the week, and I slept in until 10 am, and when I woke up she was sitting at my computer in the living room and I was like “What are you doing?” and she was like “Oh just scanning in a few documents that I need,” and I was like, “How?” and she was like, “Um, using the scanner sitting right here?” So I have a scanner! So you know what? I’m gonna scan ALL THIRTY PAGES OF THIS SHIT for you guys. And then I’m going to get a cease and desist from expensive lawyers and then I’m going to take it down. So save them to your computer while you can. Remember: check here on Monday!!!
Is is possible that, for once, OK! magazine didn’t get the baby photos?
It appears People magazine has come out on top in the bidding war for the Brangelina twin photos. People will pay between $10-15M for the photos (the exact figure has not been released). Brad & Angie will, of course, donate the cash to charity.
Normally I don’t give a crap about celebrity baby photos — because all babies just look like babies to me — but for some reason I’m really excited to see these photos. I want to see if the babies have wings and halos. I betcha they do. If not, they can at least levitate. I’m certain of that.
Absolute cuteness abounds, as Brad Pitt takes his brood out for a quadding adventure in Miraval, where the family has been for the birth of the twinsies.
Brad drove the four-wheeler with little Shiloh — who gets more mind-blowingly gorgeous by the day — in his lap, and Zahara and what I assume is a bodyguard took up the rear. Up in front is probably Maddox, but I can’t be certain through the gigantic helmet he’s sporting.
I want to be a Jolie-Pitt!!! Will you adopt me, Brad and Angie? I come potty-trained! And I was born in Arizona … that’s kind of exotic, isn’t it? You don’t have any kids from Arizona yet. Just promise me you’ll think about it.

Star magazine, who first issued the story, has printed a retraction:
Sources in a position to have information regarding a secret wedding ceremony between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had confirmed to Star that the couple married in the French Quarter Wedding Chapel on Saturday, March 29. “There were two weddings, one planned and one unplanned,” one source told Star. “Brad and Angelina’s was the planned ceremony. The weather wasn’t good, so we were indoors.” After further investigation, the sources are not standing by their story. Brad and Angelina’s reps have not commented.
Someone over at Star is getting FIRED.
Us magazine is saying that reports of a Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie wedding on Saturday are “complete and total bulls–t.”
“Bottom line,” says a source, “they’re not even in New Orleans.”
What do you guys think? Did they tie the knot or not?
