Peace between exes
While the split between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt continues to be a bad dream come to life, with different outlets trying to portray it as a good vs. evil-type battle, let’s get what we all know out of the way first: Angelina and Brad’s main priority is their children, and despite conflicting reports about other things, protecting their kids comes first and foremost and everything else comes after. That hasn’t changed, nor will it ever.
On Friday, after some serious negotiations, TMZ reports the two came to a temporary agreement on what will surely be the most difficult issue the two will face: the custody of their children.
When Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, she requested joint legal custody but primary physical custody, with visitation for Pitt. Brad, however, pushed for shared physical custody. The fight was on, but after some back-and-forthing between lawyers, TMZ learned that Angelina has gained temporary physical custody of the kids until Oct 20. In that time, Brad gets visitation, but a therapist must be present on the first visit. He/she will determine if Brad’s next visits can go unmonitored or if he/she needs to be present whenever Brad is with the kids.
In addition, Brad and Angelina will each go through counselling and the exes and their six kids will undergo family counselling together. The most notable item? Pitt will also be randomly tested for drugs and alcohol.
TMZ also reported that Angelina has zero interest in pursuing child abuse charges against Brad. Her main focus is protecting her children, not punishing Brad. Here’s hoping the next three weeks will be problem-free and they can work it out — for the kids’ sake.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are now parents to two. We think
Blake and Ryan keep their private life pretty private. They don’t make announcements about their marriage or babies; we just eventually find out that they’re official or they have kids. For the longest time, neither of them even confirmed what daughter James’ name was. And that’s likely going to be the same way they raise their new baby.
That’s right, sources told Page Six that Blake and Ryan had their second child, who was born at a Manhattan hospital. They reported that Taylor Swift had visited the new parents and their newborn on Friday but as far as a timeline, gender or weight of Blake and Ryan’s latest, we might not know those details for months, maybe years. If at all. Yes, they’re that good. Whoever said celebs can’t live private lives needs to take lessons from the Reynolds family.
Baldwin takes on Trump on SNL
We all know how bang-on Kate McKinnon‘s impression of Hillary Clinton is, from the voice to the shoulder shimmy to, well, everything. It’s nothing short of brilliant. Well, unfortunately for Donald Trump, it turns out Alec Baldwin is more than just a dude with Schweddy Balls when it comes to Saturday Night Live.
The opening debate skit was as close to the actual debate as it could get. Yep, the SNL writers didn’t need to make anything up that wasn’t already said, which is kind of terrifying, no? The skit was hilarious, don’t get us wrong, but it would be so much funnier if it wasn’t so scarily precise. Alec’s impression of The Donald was great but it wasn’t too far off from Trump’s cartoonish persona. So, as far as impersonations go, Baldwin was fantastic. But its uncanniness may have just frightened everyone everywhere.
Sarah Jessica Parker just gave hope to Sex and the City fans everywhere
Sex and the City, the series? Fabulous. The first movie? Pretty good. The sequel? Hmm. Does comme ci, comme ça count as a review? Because it was just OK. Heck, it was barely OK. So should the on-screen lives of Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha end that way? Nope. And SJP just teased that there might be more.
Parker told the Press Association that there’s “always a possibility, definitely” of a reunion. And she wasn’t done. “I don’t think any of us have said no. I don’t know whether it’s a series or the movie. I think that remains an open question and discussion that will continue until it’s been resolved.”
It’s everything an SATC fan longs to hear. Now let’s make it happen, ladies.
Zayn Malik with a shaved beard looks nothing like the Zayn we know and love
If Zayn wanted to leave One Direction unnoticed, this is probably the way he should’ve done it. That being said, how is it even possible that he looks hotter than before? Usually a beard makes the man, especially one as young and boyish as Malik. But there’s something about a clean-shaven Zayn that will have hearts a-flutter.
So from this …
… to this:
Gigi, you are one lucky lady. Could there be a prettier couple?
