Angelina Jolie's Childhood Nanny: Stop "Demonizing" Brad Pitt and Using the Children as "Weapons" Against Him

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

At long last, Angelina Jolie’s childhood nanny speaks, offering the only take we need or want about their divorce.

In an exclusive with the Daily Mail, Krisann Morel draws comparisons between Angie’s behavior and that of her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who divorced Jon Voight in 1977. “‘I’m speaking out because I want to send a message to Angelina, who I care about very much,” she said, using the Daily freaking Mail as a platform for something that could very well be sent in a text. “‘I want to tell her, “Please don’t cut Brad out of the children’s lives. Don’t use the children as weapons in your divorce. And don’t demonize your husband”.


It would seem that the nanny finds a lot of similarities between what happened in Angelina’s childhood: Jon Voight was a womanizing monster and Marcheline Bertrand couldn’t stand to look at Angelina because she looked so much like her father and was distraught over his cheating. I’m not entirely sure how Angelina Jolie has “weaponized” her children in this life event, but that’s neither here nor there.

I hope Morel goes on a lovely vacation with the gajillion dollars she probably got for this interview!

Khloe Kardashian has finally spoken about virulent STI Donald Trump’s comments about her when she was a begrudging contestant on The Celebrity Apprentice.


A fan of women and friend to all, Trump reportedly referred to Khloe as “a fat piglet” and whined at what I presume was a room of nervous PAs, “What is this? We can’t even get the hot one?” The “hot one,” for the record, is Kim. Rude. Anyway, Khloe caught wind of this and so was asked about it while promoting her new denim line Good American. The Los Angeles Times reports:

“I didn’t think he was saying those things about me...But he says those comments about a lot of women — really derogatory things. Someone who is that simplistic to judge things off of surface is not someone I want running my country.

“It’s not cool or appropriate for any person, male or female, to judge someone else by their looks. I find it really cruel. It’s wild.”


But why, you wonder, was Khloe on that show anyway? Out of all the Kardashians, I honestly can’t picture her being the one to volunteer as tribute. In an appearance on Chelsea Handler’s Netflix show, Khloe explained thusly: “My mom made me do it. I hated every minute of it.”

Here’s a nice quote from Amanda Seyfried about destigmatizing mental health and Lexapro.

“I’ll never get off of it. I’m on the lowest dose. I don’t see the point of getting off of it. Whether it’s placebo or not, I don’t want to risk it. And what are you fighting against? Just the stigma of using a tool?”

A mental illness is a thing that people cast in a different category [from other illnesses], but I don’t think it is. It should be taken as seriously as anything else. You don’t see the mental illness: It’s not a mass; it’s not a cyst. But it’s there. Why do you need to prove it? If you can treat it, you treat it.”


More people should speak frankly about their goddamn meds. It’s fine!
