RIP: Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie

It's been two months since I last posted on the BLOW OFF. Admittedly, life has been busy and the blog had to take a back burner to other writing endeavors. But how can I not blog on the day that...


You can't have a blog about relationships ending and not post about the most high profile divorce of our time. This is a next level break-up. Personally, I'm still reeling from the initial shock. I called my husband this morning on my way to work to see if he'd heard the news and even a guy who doesn't care about celebrity gossip at all said, "get out of town!"

You guys might hate me for this, but I'm not a huge Team Aniston gal. I find Jolie far more interesting. That said, I do enjoy the fact that Jennifer Aniston is definitely reveling in the schadenfreude today. It's basically redemption for anyone who's been cheated on or left in the lurch for another woman.

According to TMZ, the divorce is all about the kids. Angie was worried about Brad's parenting, anger issues, and substance abuse problems. If there's no cheating, these divorces always seem to be substance abuse related, right? It seems like it's going to be an ugly parting of the ways. For starters, she wants sole custody of the kids AND announced the split on a Tuesday. Everyone knows that when a celeb doesn't want the public to discuss their dirty laundry, they announce their break-ups on Fridays.

I have so many questions. Was there cheating? Did he really bang Marion Cotillard? Once a cheater always a cheater? Is he a total dick to the kids? How can you not be a total dick to the kids when you have six of them? Does love actually exist in this world? Will this divorce make her even skinnier? Who would either of them end up with next? Is anyone ever as happy as they seem? Are celebrities just so used to everything in their lives being taken care of for them that they just don't have the capacity to deal with marital problems?

If I think about it too long, my head might explode. I think my friend Jihan put it best when she sent me this text:

"How can Brangelina divorce at a time like this when the nation is already so fragile?"

Ugh, for real!
