The other Pitt, Doug Pitt, was on Today this morning to pimp out his dorkafied viral video for Virgin Mobile Australia, and Matt Lauer brought up the anti-gay, anti-abortion and anti-Obama letter his conservative Christian mom Jane Pitt wrote to the editor of her local newspaper in Missouri. Doug didn’t respond by making the same eye roll you make when one of your family members posts some “let me reach for the emancipation papers” shit on Facebook. Doug said this instead:
“Moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world, so why would our family be any different? There can be healthy discussion when people disagree with you, and I think there should be. The bad thing is when it turns into venom and negativity and we don’t have that in our family. It’s open discussion, we can learn from each other … maybe you learn something.”
I’m not sure I’d call it totally healthy when Jane Pitt screams at Brad, “Your labia-licking heathen’ whore of a fiancee’s soul will burn in the depths of hell and Lucifer will use it as his lube!”, but that’s probably just me.
All of this has made me grateful that the most controversial thing my mom and I fight about around the Thanksgiving table is which Dynasty goddess is the hottest. It shouldn’t even be an argument, but she’s still Team Krystle. I know, it’s a problem.
