People reports that Angelina Jolie is not at all fucking around and has hired Judy Smith to help clean up the splatters that landed on her image when her marriage exploded in front of everyone. Judy Smith is a fixer who inspired Shonda Rhimes to create Scandal and the character of Olivia Pope. Because St. Angie hired the real-life Olivia Pope, it looks like she may be trying to get a job with the United Nations, and in a few months, she’ll have that gig as Brad Pitt sits in a prison cell after a dead hooker is found in the trunk of his car! And if St. Angie is trying to hide something, it’ll stay forever hidden! I don’t watch Scandal (I know, I have terrible taste), but I do watch Ray Donovan and I’m assuming that Olivia Pope is kind of like Ray. And “dead hooker in the car trunk” is a total Ray Donovan move.
Earlier today, one of People’s sources said that Angie and Brad are trying to keep from going to court and are working out an agreement including custody of their 6 children. As everyone knows, St. Angie asked for sole physical custody of the child army, because Brad is allegedly a mean stoner drunk and she feels he’s a danger to their kids. Brad is ready to fight her on that. A lawyer type told People that getting sole physical custody isn’t easy and not something that judges like to do. In between negotiating with Brad’s team, Angie’s team is working with Judy Smith’s crisis management firm, Smith & Company, to clean up this PR mess.
“Judy has been asked to consult with those working with Angelina on divorce negotiations. Judy and her firm have a long history of handling issues that have unfortunately garnered too much attention in the public eye, and she knows how to push towards resolutions that are swift and discreet.”
So let’s see, St. Angie has Laura Wasser, Lady Arminka and now the real-life Olivia Pope on her side. She’s basically got the Avengers of divorce teams. And on Brad’s divorce team, he’s got his bong, a Magic 8-Ball and Jacques Jolie-Pitt. But Brad should stop counting on Jacques Jolie-Pitt’s advice and wisdom on how to fix his image. Because when that pooch finds out that Angie’s got the real-life Olivia Pope on her side, he’s going to switch teams real fast!
