Angelina Jolie's weird brother James Haven says that he and sis Angie now consider themselves "orphans," following the death of their mother Marcheline Bertrand this past January -- even though their estranged father, actor Jon Voight, is still kicking up dust.
Haven says, "There were times when our father was awesome, but my biggest memory is that he would look more to our faults than to our strengths, and that's what was so hard."
"Now that our mother has died, we're two orphans, Angie and I, so she has a deep understanding of the orphans she adopts."
So Angie's recent spate of adoptions is because she can relate so much to the plight of orphaned children? She adopted Thai orphan Pax Thien, 3, this past March, who joined adopted son Maddox, 5, Zahara, 2, and biological daughter Shiloh Nouvel, 10 months.
Jenna Disappoints FansNewly too-skinny porn queen Jenna Jameson recently underwent a botched vaginoplasty operation, and has lost so much weight that she appears to be disappearing. Now, sources say, she's become a disappointment to fans -- at last weekend's Exxxotica adult film expo in Miami.
"She was contractually supposed to show up for a total of six hours in two days yet arrived late both days and blew off the event 45 minutes early on the second day of her appearance," one source told the New York Post. She also allegedly refused to answer fans' questions about her weight or her surgery, and supposedly left early when she saw that fellow porn star Tera Patrick had a longer line of fans and admirers than she did.
For their part, event organizers say they were happy with her participation. Exxxotica's Jay Handy said, "Jenna fulfilled her contract, and Jenna had a classic Jenna fan line - the biggest line, that wrapped around the Convention Hall."
Jameson blames her extreme weight loss on stress from her ongoing divorce from estranged husband Jay Grdina.
"Greasy Bear" Gets Dissed
Brandon "Greasy Bear" Davis is so unpopular, even his friends can't bear him. The oily heir showed up to a Details magazine party last week in Hollywood and became enraged when he was denied access. According to Page Six, "he started demanding that staffers get Stavros [Niarchos]." Niarchos allegedly told Davis about the party and was already inside. But when staffers found Niarchos, he begged them to tell Davis that he wasn't there, adding, "I didn't invite him here, and I don't really want to be around him." Eventually, Davis weaseled his way in, and Niarchos roundly apologized to his Details editor friend, saying, "You know I would never bring him here."
