Can we have a little round table discussion of sorts; you know, to wrap up some of the Hollywood goings ons from the last 2 weeks or so. So much going on, as per usual, but let’s just touch on a few headlines that peaked my interest, so to speak. Firstly, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt get Married.
Talk about a surprise wedding, let alone a much anticipated one. Jolie and Pitt exchanged vows at the Chateau Miraval in France, with all of their gorgeous brood in attendance. Rightfully so it was a family affair, as Jolie and Pitt always made it perfectly clear that when they did finally marry it would center around their children and the right timing. Cue thoughts on Angelina’s gown: how absolutely perfect, and of course stunning. Her custom Atelier Versace gown was embedded with her children’s original artwork along the back/train and the veil. Not only did she score huge points in the fact that her dress was one of the most gorgeous gowns since Kate married Will, but the keepsake value alone is set to rival any wedding gown, ever. Congratulations Brangelina!!
Speaking of congratulations, they are also owed to a certain country music superstar: Carrie Underwood is Pregnant. The blonde bombshell with the gams to envy announced via Instagram over Labor Day weekend that she was, indeed, expecting her first child with husband Mike Fisher. A lot of springtime mamas (gorgeous ones) to keep on bump watch 😉
Now for some shocking news that will rock your universe: Betty Crocker has discontinued Rainbow Chip Frosting. This is not a joke; I repeat, this is not a joke, this is real life. After visiting a few local grocery stores over the weekend and coming up empty, I did what any logical, rational human being would do and took to Facebook for answers. That’s when I learned of this heinous act committed by Betty Crocker. Now Hollywood, I know this is not your jurisdiction, but c’mon, you have got to have some connections to rectify this situation. All the baked goods, all the family traditions of many, halted. Rainbow Chip always beat out it’s closest competition, Funfetti. I mean, really, there’s no contest. And what’s Betty Crocker’s answer to this madness they’re responsible for? A funfetti knock off with their logo slapped on the front…a tub of frosting with an enclosed packet of rainbow sprinkles. Not okay, Betty, not okay. Here’s to hoping you come to your senses, and just as Hostess brought back the twinkie, you bring back the Rainbow Chip.
Now to close this post off with something a little more pleasurable than the aforementioned information: Robert Pattinson’s Dior Homme ad. I knew there was a reason I once fancied this man; in a Water for Elephants way, not a Twilight way.
