Random Fuzzies


I finally found one mention of "reconciliation" in the latest Us Weekly:

"In the beginning, a reconciliation was realistic," says a source. "But her campaign against him was so vicious, the possibility has become more and more remote."

It is so blatantly tabloid trash that it doesn't deserve further comment.


******

For years they never had publicists but now, faced with this crisis, they both do.  So we must remember that every bit of information they release has been vetted and forms part of an overall strategy.

They are mindful of perceptions and expectations.

The latest reports from Us and People painted a bleak picture of healing between father and son -- and by extension, the family as a whole.

But in fact the reports were outdated and misleading.

The TMZ report is meant to set things straight.

"while Brad has had visits with his 5 other kids before Wednesday, the face-to-face with Maddox is a turning point."

They moved quickly to immediately counter the perceptions left by the Us and People reports.    They answered less than 24 hours later.  They want you to know that contrary to those reports, things are looking up.  That in fact, Brad and Maddox could have met earlier.  That they've passed a "turning point."

It was important to them that the world know this right away.

Like time is of the essence and they didn't want any delay.


Note also that "sources connected with Angelina" are talking about how Brad is making progress reconciling with his children.


They were careful with the words they chose so if it turns out the way I think it will, they can't be accused of making false or misleading statements.

They said that "she's headed to divorce court" not "headed towards divorce."  Two very different meanings.

They said "she still wants their family to function with a fully involved father and mother."   their family.  Not "she still wants their children to have a fully involved mother and father."  Again two very different conclusions.  And sole physical custody is apparently no longer necessary.


For Angelina, the use of "family" has been consistent from the start.


To-date, her petition is still pending.

There is no word on whether the DCFS has already ruled that the children are safe.



But the signs seem to indicate that something will be coming down soon.  Something they seem eager for.


*****

I don't think any true member of their inner circle is really talking to any of the  tabloids.  The tabloids may get whiff of something happening but they get it late and they just get the barest details -- probably from people further removed from them.  The tabloids then have to work overtime to spin a cover story with quotes from distant or nonexistent friends.

As I noted previously, they like to mix the outrageous with a few reasonable sounding quotes just to keep you wondering if it could be true.  So keeping that in mind, this is the last paragraph of the Us article:


After coming out swinging, she's beginning to bend on maintaining sole physical custody, Jolie -- who, sources say, disagreed with Pitt's strict parenting style -- "has had to scale back on her demands," says the friend.  A source says the pair haven't hammered out an agreement, "but there have been some constructive conversations." Enough to convince Pitt there could be better days ahead. He's being patient," explains the insider.  And he's doing whatever it

I think it's best not believe anything that isn't from "sources connected with Angelina" in TMZ.

Mind you, NOT all the TMZ stories, just the ones written in a more professional style (probably written by Harvey Levin himself) that clearly state they came "sources connected with Angelina".

    1. He has 30 days to reply, if he doesn't, she can get everything she asked for in the petition by default.

    2. TMZ as per usual have NO sources just speculating again we know JP's have shut it down so for them to speculate what he's saying and waht she's saying is wrong. All tabloids again are contredicting each other every day.Same old BS just a diffrent day. Tabloids still making Angelina the bad guy.

  2. I agree that TMZ has been the most reliable so far. That`s why this concerns me - Our Angelina sources say, even though she's headed to divorce court - I believe this came from Angie`s team so it`s most likely true. She filled to protect the kids and now it seems that Brad and the kids( even Maddox) are in the process of repairing their relationship so I don`t understand why she is set to ``headed to divorce court `` if this are looking up.

    2. Well Brad should know better Angelina didnt say anything bad about him all she done is try to protect him and took teh hit from tabloids and still is and we know its all tabloids BS and if he starts beliving the BS about his wife about him then he's a poorer man than I thought he is.

    3. Or to ammend her petition to one that is favorable for the both of them.

  3. Nah, I don't trust TMZ. Why they constantly claim to have Angelina sources after Angelina sicked her lawyers on publications ? Probably to get her to really talk to them or some other magazine. I also don't buy the "campaign" against brad bull because if he did something to her son she wouldn't play games like that... It felt more like brad went on a full blown attack against her and his son.

  4. I hope Brad isnt just " "Brad is not going down without a fight." for the kids only, but also for his wife Angelina too.

  5. Love, why would a source close to angelina say that? Sounds more like a source close to brad would say that.

    Thank you for being realistic and being fair in your write ups. I love your site.As for Brad and Angelina I still have hope they will weather out these difficult times. Tabloids have been after them for 12 years and unfortunately due to this incident they have been given a gift that they never had imagined they would have and use that against JP's and their Family.The tabloids have no remorse and no scruples when it comes to hating on JP's. Knowing JP's they will come out of this stronger and together.

  7. "ET confirms that Jolie still wants Pitt to be apart of their children's lives, but they will move forward with the divorce and have no plans to reconcile."

    Is ET to be believed?

    1. Interesting that they say there is no plans to reconcile. I don't recall any recent published reports saying they would?

      Delete
    2. Why shouldn't we believe ET? Angelina filed for divorce, not separation. We have no reason to believe she was joking when she filed.
      I think whatever he did to hurt her kids ruined whatever they have left and if that didn't do it his reaction in people magazine sure did.
      I think Angelina will remain the main care taker for the kids and Brad will visit when he is not working. It will be very hard to have joint custody (that's not in name only) if he plans on working as much as he usually does.

      Sorry if this ends up being a multiple post... i was trying to post from my phone earlier and not sure if they went through.

  8. ET also reported before that Angelina gave birth to 2 girls before she gave birth to the twins... so nope, they're not reliable. They don't really have good sources. Doubtful any of their close friends are talking to the media

    1. Seems like the article is a rewrite of everything TMZ has stated. I have come to the conclusion that no one really knows what's going on except the people involved and that a good thing.

      Delete
    2. yea, but Angelina actually filed for divorce... we have no reason to doubt her intentions. She filed because she wants a divorce.

      Delete
    3. Yes she did file for divorce and there are some good reasons why she had to do it so suddenly. Everyone 's entitled to their own opinion, but I will remain hopeful for a reconciliation.

  9. Guys,all this is logorating me so much :( I really wish I could keep on hoping for a reconciliation, but I also think I should start to accept the reality. I'm so sad. Can't think of anything else but them in these days :'(

  10. Fussy, they will be a family whether or not they proceed with the divorce. I don't think they'd take that away from them. So I don't know if this indicates anything.
