Brad Pitt already has his own production company. It’s called Plan B Productions. When it was originally founded, Jennifer Aniston was a partner. She split from the company after her marriage to Brad fell apart.
Now Jennifer has her own Plan B. I suppose Plan A was to be married, have a family, and live happily ever after. That didn’t work out so hot, so Jen just founded her own production company with friend Kristin Hahn. It’s called Echo Productions, and they’ve acquired the rights to the British bestseller Getting Rid of Matthew, among other projects.
Who needs a happy marriage or an Ethiopian baby when you can have your own production company?
Yay, women’s lib!

Okay: What is wrong with Rosie O’Donnell’s face?
Is this some sort of disease?
Or did she just break out with adult-onset freckles?
You have to truly love someone to stay with them when their face looks like that. Although I guess we could have said that about Rosie even before the weird freckle thing.
And check out her hands! Was she in a bar fight?
Anyway, here’s Rosie and wife Kelli at the Sherie Renee Scott benefit concert in NYC.

Someone just alerted me to the existence of YouPorn.com.
It’s still in Beta.
Master-beta, I imagine.
It’s very very NSFW.

Here’s the charming and wonderful Buzz Aldrin and his wife, Lois, being adorable outside Cipriani.
Buzz Aldrin, in case you didn’t know, was the second person to set foot on the moon, immediately after Neil Armstrong. He was a childhood hero of mine, back when I dreamed I’d be an astronaut rather than a gossip blogger.
I had an unexpected opportunity to meet Mr. Aldrin several months ago. It was in a situation where I certainly was not planning to meet a man I so admired, and I was wearing a T-shirt from a pool hall/strip club that I’d stolen from an ex-boyfriend years ago. It had the silhouette of a naked woman on it, and something about racks written on it.
So I went up to Mr. Aldrin and said, “Hi, Mr. Aldrin. I saw you and I just had to come over and say hello. You were a childhood hero for me. I just wanted to shake your hand.”
And he seemed genuinely pleased to hear this, and shook my hand, and then he was like, “Young lady, what is on your shirt?” I was like, “Oh, it belonged to an ex-boyfriend of mine.” And he was like, “Well, it sure is a good thing he’s not your boyfriend anymore. What kind of a jerk buys a shirt like that? You’re better off without him.” And I was like “I love you, Mr. Aldrin.”

I just think this is so funny. And by funny I of course mean aggravating.
Patrick Dempsey has signed onto a “fragrance partnership” with Avon.
“This is an extremely exciting opportunity for me to work with Avon — a brand I have long respected as a global powerhouse with a lot of heart and soul,” said Dempsey. “The brand reaches every corner of the globe with more than just high quality products — it creates economic empowerment for women through its earning opportunity, and has an excellent reputation for corporate philanthropy through their Avon Foundation. My wife Jillian has enjoyed her experience working with Avon, and I look forward to joining the family as well.”
OMG. Gag me with a spoon. “Economic empowerment?” Through its “earning opportunity?” Jesus Christ, people, go to fucking college. And why just women? Are men not allowed to be Avon reps? They’re certainly allowed to enter into fragrance partnerships with Avon.
I dunno, it’s not that Avon isn’t a good-hearted organization; I think what bothers me about this is that women don’t enter into “fragrance partnerships.” They launch perfume lines. But when a man gets involved the press release reads like JP Morgan Chase just took out a non-recourse loan from the Fed for him. Ridiculous.

It’s still better than anything Chloe Sevigny’s worn since she decided to adorn herself in Vincent Gallo’s penis.
Here’s SJP at a screening of Smart People.
