On August 23rd, 2014, just over two years ago, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie tied the knot at their estate, Château Miraval, in the South of France. Brad Pitt is an American actor and producer. He has received multiple awards and nominations throughout his career, such as his various Golden Globes. Angelina Jolie is an American actress, filmmaker, and humanitarian. She has also received many awards throughout her career, including an Academy Award. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2003, in which they played married assassins who are hired to kill each other, but then they fall back in love. The film gained popularity and awareness in 2005 when rumors of Brad and Angelina having a relationship emerged, while Brad was still married to Jennifer Aniston. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston soon announced their separation in January 2005, and not long after, he and Jolie became romantically entangled.

“You’re Fired”

February 11, 2017No Comments

It is not an uncommon practice in the TV business for a show’s host to be replaced by someone else, and such is the fate for The Celebrity Apprentice. For the first time in its decade-long history, Donald Trump will not host the reality/game show. During Trump’s initial bid for election, NBC decided to let go of the long-time host of this TV classic, after his unseemly comments about immigrants. Trump’s catchphrase, “You’re fired,” did not seem so amusing when it was turned on him.
