Sorry, gals, I dissent from The Other Charlotte’s dissent from Sister Alison. Here’ are five reasons why we should cut Brangelina some slack:

1. They don’t pull stunts like this.

2. The “Br” part is an actor of genuine star quality and a hunk. The other part leaves me cold–I much prefer la Anniston.

3. At least they had a kid, which Anniston (according to the tabs) wouldn’t do for the “Br” part. Ruin the figure, interfere with the career–something ike that.

4. “Shiloh” is a biblical name, which suggests a faint religious sensibility.

5. Isn’t it nice to be able to keep the Mainstream Media out of “your” country?
