I am a mother of two beautiful young children. It can be a total juggling act to take them out to the mall, grocery store or on a long plane ride. I can"t imagine doing it in the public eye every time, like our celebrity Mom"s (thinking in particular of the Angelina at the West Edmonton Mall, airport, etc) I always see her with Zahara strapped to her and Maddox holding hands, but never see any Nannies attached. Is she really a "hands on" Mom, or does she get the photo op, and then pass the kids to a team of Nannies?
They have assistants and they do have nannies for temporary sits but from what I understand, the Pitts are as involved as they come - in Hollywood, that is. But I doubt Michael Douglas would share that opinion. Apparently Mr Zeta Jones decided to spew on Brad, Angie, Renee, and Julia in a new interview with GQ:
“I don’t know about Brad Pitt leaving that beautiful woman [Jennifer Aniston] to go hold orphans for Angelina. I mean how long is that going to last? You learn to respect something of value and nurture it and treat it well. I mean, don’t ask me what happened with Renee Zellweger [and her short-lived husband Kenny Chesney]. I don’t know how you get married for four months. And Julia with Lyle [Lovett]. There must be some incredible things you find out one night. I mean, I don’t know.”
Now ordinarily I"d be incredibly offended by the "holding orphans" comment but when you remember who this is coming from it ceases to be insulting and actually becomes rather funny. To know that Michael Douglas and his 60 year old face lift have come to Jennifer Aniston"s defence? Pure poetry, y"all. Pure, pure poetic justice. And it"s no f&cking wonder why JenJen is now pleading with us not to pity her anymore, as she so eloquently articulates in the latest issue of Vogue. "Don"t make me your victim ... It makes my skin crawl." Uh huh. Being allied to Michael Douglas and his shrivelled penis would make my skin crawl too.
Oh and one more thing - do you ever wonder what Grandpa Mike had to say to his wife when she was smoking 7 months into her 2nd pregnancy? Just wondering...
