The Word: Put a ring on it, Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt is either under a spell or too tired to tell his kids to mind their own business.

After almost seven years together, it looks like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie might make it official. The royal couple is abandoning their original plan to wait until gay marriage is legal in exchange for some peace and quiet around the house. “We’re getting a lot of pressure from the kids,” Pitt admits in an interview with “CBS Sunday Morning” that aired yesterday. “It means something to them.”

It seems their six-pack — count ’em: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne — have been telling him to “get Mommy a ring” and he’s promised, “OK, I will! I will!”

So, just to sum it up: When pressured by six young children to buy a diamond for a woman who has let him stick around since 2005 without one, Brad Pitt runs his strong, rugged hands through his shiny blonde hair and says, “Sure kids, why not.”

Angelina, we don’t know what you did to this man, but we’re impressed.

JLo and Marc Anthony to reconcile?

After the space we devoted to their breakup, they’d better not. In an interview with People.com about their new Spanish-language talent search show, “Q’Viva: The Chosen,” Anthony shares some pretty benign “we’ll always love and respect each other” PR speak: “We’re just meant to be in each other’s lives on different levels. This is a long story, it’s not a short story. Marriage was just one chapter.”
But sources tell TMZ that a reconciliation is possible, and that the couple has been strengthened by splitting up.

Just as we suspected: These two are fueled by publicity and gossip columnist tears. JLo, you announce a vow renewal past deadline, and so help us we will cut off your supply.

Whip-its redacted

References to whip-its were redacted from Demi Moore’s 911 tape after the L.A. city attorney recommended the move to protect her privacy, reports TMZ. The tape was released to the public on Friday. Her friends had told paramedics that she had inhaled nitrous oxide and was “semiconscious, barely.”

We’ve got to wonder: Is this a policy for all drugs, or just the small handful that are more embarrassing than cough syrup?
