Last week, The Sports Gal - wife of ESPN.com columnist, Bill Simmons - was in a festive mood.
This week, she's putting coal in the stocking of a certain celebrity. And it's not Rosie O'Donnell. To hear her say it ...
I used to really like Angelina Jolie. Ever since she starred in Gia, I admired her flawless natural beauty, as well as the many character flaws that made her more likable and less threatening overall.
Maybe she was a recovering drug addict, a cutter, a brother kisser, and a blood vial-wearing skank who looked like she showered once a week, but she didn't care what others thought and was totally comfortable going out in public without tons of makeup on. So that made her likable, at least to me.
Then everything changed: She adopted Maddox, became a goodwill ambassador, started making normal movies and slowly made everyone forget that she was crazy. Next, she seduced and stole the husband of one of the most likable female celebs, adopted another baby with her stolen man, then had his biological child months before his divorce was even done.
But what really turned me into a full fledged Angelina hater was this month's Vogue article about her, with Angelina smugly pushing for peace talks between her and Jennifer Aniston, even having the gall to say, "That would be her decision, and I would welcome it."
If I were Jennifer Aniston, I would welcome it, too. Then I would meet Angelina for lunch and repeatedly smash a chair over her head.
