Report: Brad And Angelina ‘Are Over’

brangelina

The rumors about the state of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s relationship are getting so loud, we’re thinking of wearing earplugs more or less permanently. The latest doom-laden gossip has Brangelina living separate lives and claim they’re “gearing up” to announce a split. Britain’s Grazia mag goes in for the kill after flagging up the fact that Brad flew to the family’s French mansion alone over Easter — and that he was going there to nab his portion of the couples’ art collection.

“It’s going to be one of Hollywood’s nastiest breakups. There’s talk of lawyers being brought in to divide their assets and decide custody arrangements. Their relationship has soured to the extent that they aren’t even talking,” the mag reports a source saying.

Nooo! Say it ain’t so for the Rainbow Family. What about the Wonder Twins? It seems only a short while ago that we were blogging about Shrek bringing these two close to getting married. Halcyon days. [Photo: WireImage]

Uma Thurman To Marry This Weekend

uma-thurman

Uma Thurman is set to get married to mega-loaded Arpad Busson this weekend in a “low-key” ceremony, according to reports. (We’re not sure if her idea of low-key is ours — can’t see them with a sandwich buffet and iPod disco.) The couple is one of the most well-connected in Britain and America, although Arpad has said to be hit hard by the economic downturn and his investments with fraudster Bernie Madoff.  Their joint wealth is now down to $124m, according to the Sunday Times Rich List. How terrible!

They’ve both got romantic pasts, too: Uma was previously married to British actor Gary Oldman and Gen-X icon Ethan Hawke, who’s now married to their former nanny. And Arpad has two kids with Elle MacPherson, who’s been linked with Guy Ritchie, Madonna’s ex. Who’s dating….oh, you get the idea. [Photo: Splash News Online]

Jesse Metcalfe Really Needs To Return To Desperate Housewives

It hasn’t exactly been a huge success for Jesse Metcalfe since leaving Desperate Housewives. He’s done the totally crappy fun and lighthearted teen flick John Tucker Must Die and fallen out of a window at a party, and um, that’s it. Now the show’s creator Marc Cherry has hinted that a major character from the first two series will be returning to Wisteria Lane, and Jesse’s character John is one of the favorites. Look, it can’t get any worse for Jesse these days. Where was he last night? Why, attending the Radox Shower Smoothie Awards in London, alongside the cream of Britain’s C-list celebs like Jenny Frost and ex-Big Brother contestant Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace. Yep, this guy needs a job — fast.

Tina Fey And Family Get New Digs

fey_apt

Try as we might in this crappy economy, we just can’t hate Tina Fey and her mansion-buying ways. She and hubby composer Jeff Richmond just splurged on a 4-BR, 4.5-BA, $3.4M apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. What it lacks in modern decor and flash, it more than makes up for with square footage and a private elevator. We think Jack Donaghy would approve.

Julie Chen, host of Big Brother, announced on CBS’ Early Show—which she co-anchors—that she is pregnant with her first child. The father is husband of four years Les Moonves, CEO of CBS. “It wasn’t a big Sunday at the buffet table. I’m starting to show now!” said Chen. Despite the job security that should follow getting knocked up by her boss, Chen plans to appear on both shows throughout her pregnancy. “I’m feeling fine…but I will use an excuse if have to.”

Paula Abdul To Perform On American Idol?

paula abdul and the boys

After eight years of judging on American Idol, Paula Abdul may finally perform on the show. Responding to a fan on her Twitter Sunday, the Forever Your Girl singer wrote “I wouldn’t be surprised if you catch me on stage in the next month…stay tuned….”

While Abdul has her first album since 1995 to hype, performing on Idol might be a little awkward. Despite her success, Abdul isn’t known for her vocal gifts: she was sued for credit by a back-up singer in 1991 and lip-synced her 2008 Super Bowl performance. If she does Idol canned, it will be a joke—but if her voice is weak, Kara DioGuardi might jump out of her seat to prove she’s a better singer. Maybe Paula should stick to constructive gibberish and let the contestants do the tunes.

In our age-obsessed culture, we need someone like Lisa around to remind us how just how good 45 can look.
