Dear Gossips,

Oscar weekend is here! Will it be a Brange weekend too? Both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are confirmed as presenters on Sunday night. Mostly likely they were present individually.

Here’s where I sound like an old lady. Because Jacek and I are on each other’s phones all the time. If he’s driving, I’m reading his texts and emails to him. And he’s the one who programs my phone and sets it up and I’m shoving it in his face all the time whenever it’s pissing me off. Full Story
