Brad Pitt Keeps Talking About Jennifer Aniston

It all started when Brad made that comment about Jennifer Aniston, you know, the one where he basically said that his life wasn’t that interesting when he was married to her. Which was a totally fair statement, I think, but, of course, everyone got all upset because Jennifer is supposed to be America’s sweetheart, I think, and how could he be so mean like that? And then Brad was like “no, no, what I said was interpreted all wrong, Jen is so awesome.” You’d think that would be the end of it, but no. Brad is still apologizing.

In a Today show interview that will air Thursday, the actor continued to explain why he said, “It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself. I think that my marriage had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t.”

Says Pitt to Lauer: “I don’t know what was pieced together or put together. All I know is that my point was, the best thing I’d done as a father is be sure that my kids have a good mother.”

“That’s all I was, or am, trying to say,” adds Pitt. “It has no reference to the past. And I think it’s a shame that I can’t say something nice about Angie without Jen being drug in. You know, she doesn’t deserve it.”

Pitt goes on, “I don’t wanna be encumbered by any of that. I know my intentions, and I know what I believe, and I know things get misconstrued, and I know there’s a good cycle and a good story to say we’re splitting up. And then when we don’t, they say we’ve come together again, it’s another new cycle, and then there’s a secret wedding. ‘No, that was put on hold because they’re upset.’ It’s, you know, that’s– I live outside of that, and it’s much healthier.”

When Lauer asked Pitt about the statement he released to The Hollywood Reporter and other outlets clarifying his comments, Pitt says, “I don’t want them to say anything bad like that about Jen. She’s a dear friend of mine.”

It seems like Brad really is getting an insane amount of shit for seemingly saying something negative about Jennifer Aniston, and that is so bizarre to me. I mean, it’s Jennifer Aniston, it’s not like Brad Pitt rained on Taylor Swift‘s parade at the VMAs or something. He mentioned a marriage that ended six years ago. Can we let this go already?

It’s Official: The Hutchisons Got Their Reality Show!

Last month, I told you guys that my very favorite couple, Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison, were looking for a producer so they could get their very own reality show underway. And finally, on this most glorious day of days, we finally have the official word that this show is a go! Rejoice!

The 17-year-old and her Green Mile actor husband Doug Hutchison have signed a deal with Roy Bank, the president of Merv Griffin Entertainment.

“We are so excited to be working with Roy Bank, a great professional in this business,” Courtney and Doug exclusively told Radaronline.com.

“We are proud that we were able to find the perfect producer for our reality show and are thrilled to be working with this prestigious production company.”

Bank was the executive producer of reality show hits like Mark Burnett Productions’ Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?

“The reason we went with Roy is because we feel that he is the man who will be able to place Courtney’s show in front of the best network for her,” Krista Stodden, Courtney’s momager, told Radaronline.com.

The reality show will give viewers a look into the newlywed’s unconventional lifestyle and promises to be no holds barred.

“They are going to be very, very open about their lives,” Courtney’s mom said. “They want everybody to see their life. Nothing is off limits.”

Of course nothing is off limits, these are the Hutchisons we’re talking about! We’re going to see Courtney “prowling mysteriously around the house while lickin’ my lips searchin’ for some nip” and we’ll get to check out firsthand how “not creepy” Doug is, and yes, we’ll also all ponder how legal it all is.

Can’t wait!

Maggie Gyllenhaal Is Such A Sweetheart About Her Vibrators!

Ladies, you know how it is: you’ve been single for a while, or you’ve been sexually frustrated with your partner, or hell, maybe you just need some good old-fashioned motorized fun! And sure, you’ve got your tired old toy to tide you over, but sometimes you need a little something different. And then you think, “hey, my friend so-and-so has been raving about that newfangled contraption she got a few weeks ago, I need to try that out!” Hey, what are BFFs for? Unfortunately, you might encounter a few girlfriends who are too selfish to lend out their sex toys. But not Maggie Gyllenhaal! Nope, Maggie, who stars in Hysteria, that movie about the vibrators, is more than willing to help a sister out!

“By the time I finished the movie I’d been sent maybe 15 vibrators by different people in London with vibrator stores. It was a pleasant surprise. So I have this incredible collection, and I actually use like one or two of them. I lend them to my friends, and they’ll take them for six months at a time. [While shooting Hysteria] I was sent a lot of vibrators from different sex stores in England while we were shooting the movie. I shared them around.”

What a gal, right? What a peach! I tell you, if we all had friends like Maggie Gyllenhaal, the world would be a much better place!
