BRAD PITT AND ANGELINA JOLIE FREQUENTLY FOUGHT ABOUT PARENTING
Brangelina's relationship was allegedly destroyed by frequent disagreements about how to parent their six children. Sources tell Us Weekly that they were fighting over the kids years before they even got married.
Back in 2009, there was reportedly some tension over where and how the kids were to be educated. Brad wanted them all to attend one school but Angelina wanted them homeschooled so they could travel the world. Angelina also admitted in interviews that Brad was the stricter one in the house who played the "bad cop" role but toward the end of the marriage she had been feeling that he was too strict. Another insider said, "Brad teaches them to be respectful human beings. Angelina lets the kids run around and behave badly."
- Brad and Angelina are parents to 15-year-old son Maddox, 12-year-old son Pax, 11-year-old daughter Zahara, 10-year-old daughter Shiloh and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
- Angelina filed for divorce on September 19th shortly after Brad reportedly got belligerent toward the kids during a private flight.
- She is currently renting the Malibu home of director Bryan Singer where she is living with the children as the divorce plays out.
- It was reported on Thursday (September 29th) that they have officially started having divorce negotiations in private.
JUSTIN THEROUX IS EMBARRASSED OVER 'LEFTOVERS' SWEATPANTS ATTENTION
Justin Theroux would prefer to keep the media attention away from his crotch and Jennifer Aniston's belly. He recently spoke with both Elle and Men's Health about the strange fascination people have had on a certain part of his body and a certain part of his wife's.
He explains in the new issue of Elle, "I don't want to say objectified, but it was embarrassing. It's like having someone yank your shorts down in public. It doesn't feel great. Anyone who has an unflattering picture taken of them would probably say, 'Join the club.' It has the appearance of a compliment, but it's more mortifying than anything else."
- Justin also appears on the cover of the November issue of UK'S Men's Health where he discusses an essay that Aniston wrote amid false rumors that she was pregnant. He tells the magazine, "I was very proud of what she wrote. It was a rare insight into how disgusting all that is. At some point it becomes bullying. It sucks when people aim cameras at your stomach on some bizarre womb watch. But more to the point, it's equally damaging to the national conversation."

SARAH JESSICA PARKER CALLS OUT SEXISM BEHIND 'SEX AND THE CITY' FEUD RUMORS
Sarah Jessica Parker continues to deny that there was any behind the scenes drama with Kim Cattrall while working on Sex and the City and believes it is sexist to assume there was.
She recently told Time, "It was always so heartbreaking to me that there was this narrative about Kim and myself because it just didn't reflect anything that happened on that set. They just didn't do it to the Sopranos guys. It was so strange to me and upsetting. I posted something on Kim's birthday and people were like 'Oh my God, I didn't know you liked her!' What? We were all at liberty to walk away at any time! But nobody asked those questions of shows with men. Isn't that interesting?"
- Sarah also addressed the idea of doing a third SATC movie saying, "The last movie came out in 2010. It was 13 years of my life, give or take -- how better to have spent a career? And now it's time for me to do something else."
- Sex and the City ran for six seasons from 1998 to 2004.
SHARON OSBOURNE OFFERS UPDATE ON RELATIONSHIP WITH OZZY
Sharon Osbourne is in a good place mentally and in her marriage to Ozzy Osbourne.
She recently told UK's The Sun, "I adore Ozzy. I am trying to learn -- I try to not let things faze me. Before I was like she makes a loud roar, 'How dare they this and how dare they that...' I was riled up at the slightest thing and then you realize as you get older that all these things aren't really important." Sharon added, "You change and you grow and the things that rattled your cage 13 years ago don't rattle your cage anymore. I'm in a really good place because I'm in control of my life. Look around -- a house full of lovely people, working with lovely people, got a great family. I'm blessed."
- The life update comes less than a month after Sharon admitted on The Talk that she suffered a breakdown last year.
- She and Ozzy also briefly split up a few months back amid his admission that he had affairs behind her back.
JENNIFER GARNER SPEAKS ON SETTING AN EXAMPLE FOR HER KIDS: Jennifer Garner just wants to be a good role model for her children. She recently told Today Parents, "I don’t think empathy is something you can drill in someone's head. You have to have faith that while your kids can seem to be selfish and concerned only about the word 'mine' sometimes, overall, they are watching you really carefully, and if you care about other people, they will too." Jennifer added, "I try to be the best version of myself and to have faith that they’re watching me as carefully when I do something right as they do when I roll through a stop sign." Jennifer is mom to 10-year-old daughter Violet, seven-year-old daughter Seraphina and four-year-old son Samuel.

One text has Jim allegedly writing, "Have you seen my c**k today?" as Cathriona is writing about a dead relative. Her ex-husband said in a statement, "Jim Carrey’s public persona is a fraud. In reality he is a guy who texts about his c–k in the same breath as deceased loved ones at Christmas." Jim's legal team has slammed the lawsuit as "shameful greed."
KEKE PALMER DOESN'T REGRET MUCH ABOUT HER LIFE AS A FORMER CHILD STAR: Keke Palmer may not have had the typical upbringing during her teenage years but she doesn't regret much about the experience. She explains in the new issue of Galore, "I never had a real high school experience. My only idea of it is from watching TV shows, but I think I would’ve liked to have experienced that. I still had those types of dynamics, but maybe I wasn’t in the backdrop of a school, I was in the backdrop of a set." The 23-year-old also offers advice to younger girls saying, "I just feel like it's so much easier to allow life to change you instead of you trying to fit yourself into your ideas of life. Life is a surprising thing to experience and it's beautiful because it's filled with mystery and magic...real magic that I've seen with my own eyes! I guess my biggest tip would be not to label yourself. When you label yourself unconsciously, because that’s what society does, you don't realize how much you're limiting yourself."
NEIL PATRICK HARRIS CLAIMS HE WAS OFFERED 'LIVE' GIG BEFORE MICHAEL STRAHAN: Neil Patrick Harris may not want to be the full-time co-host of Live now but he was once considering the job. He revealed during a recent interview in New York City, "Well, before the Michael Strahan chapter...it happened, we talked about the possibility....They wanted to gauge my interest." Neil went on to say, "Who do I think would be best? Anderson Cooper would be the perfect host for that show.

NBC BAILS ON BRANGELINA SPECIAL: NBC has axed plans to air an hour-long special about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's breakup. It is believed that they backed out because they don't want to piss off either member of the former power couple for future interviews. A source told Page Six, "It was Lifetime's vice president of nonfiction programming who pulled it. The special was canceled at the last minute -- the show had already booked talking heads, hair and makeup, B-roll...Staffers were working to slam it all together. Now they’re all like, 'F**k! We just did all this work for nothing?'"
TIM BURTON ADDRESSES HOLLYWOOD'S DIVERSITY ISSUE: Tim Burton doesn't want to focus too much about diversity in his films. He told Bustle, "Nowadays, people are talking about it more. Things either call for things, or they don't. I remember back when I was a child watching The Brady Bunch and they started to get all politically correct, like, OK, let's have an Asian child and a black -- I used to get more offended by that than just -- I grew up watching blaxploitation movies, right? And I said, that's great. I didn't go like, OK, there should be more white people in these movies." Tim has recently come under fire for the lack of diversity in his new adaptation of the 2011 novel, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Cast member Samuel L. Jackson defended the director saying, "I had to go back in my head and go, how many black characters have been in Tim Burton movies? And I may have been the first, I don’t know, or the most prominent in that particular way, but it happens the way it happens. I don’t think it’s any fault of his or his method of storytelling, it's just how it's played out. Tim's a really great guy."

KIM KARDASHIAN IS OVER TALKING ABOUT THE TAYLOR SWIFT DRAMA
Kim Kardashian doesn't want to keep rehashing the drama with Taylor Swift over Kanye West's "Famous" lyrics.
She says in the new issue of Billboard, "Ugh, do we really have to talk about Taylor Swift?...I’m so over it. If it were up to Kanye, it all would probably never have come out. He can handle it, he has no hard feelings. He doesn't even really care. I just wanted to protect my husband. I saw him getting a lot of sh*t...It wasn't even about a look or anything, or to have this feud -- it was like, 'OK, here's the truth.' Done. Let's all move on. I feel like I don't want to talk about her anymore."
- Taylor reacted to Kim releasing footage of her approving the song by requesting to be "excluded from this narrative" back in July.
