Brad And Angie: Escape From The Big Easy?

Angelina Jolie Almost Bought Hemingway's Typewriter As A Gift For Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are heading out of New Orleans…

The power A listers are selling the New Orleans mansion they bought after Hurricane Katrina, and it’s not quite clear if they’re headed for a different state or WHAT.

As you’ll recall (and like many of Angie’s causes) the two swooped in after 2005’s hurricane Katrina and became extremely active in rebuilding the community. They bought the mansion a year later for $3.5 million and said they would remain embedded in the community.

Brad and Angelina were true to their words and spent a substantial amount of time in the city with their family.

But now they’re moving on, selling the 5 bedroom, 3.2 bathroom home in the French Quarter. We’re told the house has Brad Pitt’s touch … which is awesome, because he’s an architectural aficionado who has masterfully restored a number of notable estates. TMZ reports that Brad and Angelina have listed the home at $6.5 million.

So will they stay or will they go now? Weigh in BELOW!

Maddox Is A TEENAGER (I Feel Old).

Angelina Jolie Touches Down At LAX With Her Son

What? That’s little MADDOX?

Here’s Angelina Jolie and her 13-year-old son Maddox arriving on a flight at LAX on Saturday. Angelina was looking very undercover agent, after returning from NYC for a United Nations Security Council Meeting on the situation in the Middle East And Syria. Maddox on the other hand? He just looked like a teenager. A teenager!  Just yesterday I feel like Angelina was holding her little faux hawk’d baby boy on the red carpet…

Does Angi seem pissed at Maddox or is it just me?

Kelly Osbourne Reveals She Also Has The Cancer Gene

Kelly Osbourne Reveals She Also Has The Cancer Gene

Like Angelina Jolie, Kelly Osbourne has revealed that she also has the cancer gene BRCA1 and plans to take preventative measures.

“I actually do have the cancer gene,” Osbourne, 30, said on Tuesday’s episode of her cancer survivor mother Sharon‘s chat show, “The Talk.” “My mom made all of us go and get tested after she found out she had it and got her double mastectomy.”

Jolie, 39, also underwent a preventive double mastectomy two years ago.

Regarding preventive measures, Osbourne said, “I agree with this one hundred percent. I know one day I will eventually have to do it too. If I have children I want to be there to bring them up.”

“I have been the child a child of a cancer survivor and being on that end as well has been really hard to deal with,” Osbourne said. “I’m so lucky to have the brave mother I have.”

Angelina Jolie Had Her Ovaries Removed

Angelina Jolie Had Her Ovaries Removed

Angelina Jolie has had her ovaries removed. How brave of her to undergo surgery like that so that she can be around to meet her grandchildren in the future.

Two years ago, the actress underwent a double mastectomy and after a doctor detected a possible early sign of cancer, she decided to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed.

She wrote all about her experience in a New York Times op-ed (via People).

“I went through what I imagine thousands of other women have felt,” Jolie, 39, writes. “I told myself to stay calm, to be strong, and that I had no reason to think I wouldn’t live to see my children grow up and to meet my grandchildren.”

Jolie called her husband, Brad Pitt, who was on a plane within hours. “The beautiful thing about such moments in life is that there is so much clarity. You know what you live for and what matters. It is polarizing, and it is peaceful,” the mother of six writes.

That same day Jolie went to see the surgeon who had treated her mother Marcheline, who died in 2007 of ovarian cancer.

“She teared up when she saw me: ‘You look just like her,’ ” Jolie writes. “I broke down.”

She waited another five days for test results that would reveal whether there was cancer somewhere in her body. “I passed those five days in a haze, attending my children’s soccer game, and working to stay calm and focused.”

Finally the results came and she learned that the tumor test was negative. “I was full of happiness, although the radioactive tracer meant I couldn’t hug my children,” she writes. “There was still a chance of early stage cancer, but that was minor compared with a full-blown tumor. To my relief, I still had the option of removing my ovaries and fallopian tubes and I chose to do it.” It was no small decision on her part because removing her ovaries would push her into forced menopause.

Kudos to her for facing a scary problem head-on.
