Nanny Got Brad and Angie's Goat

8/25/2008 3:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We started getting tips about Brad Pitt and Angelina Joile -- that they never let the kids go out in public with nannies because they want the public to see them as hands-on parents, which means the kids would basically be held hostage in the house unless their parents take them out. Absolutely not true.

We have really good spies in this department and here's what we know. As it was put to us, "Brad and Angelina don't give a f**k what the world thinks of how they're raising their kids." We're told their entire life revolves around the kids, and the houses they stay in are "dirty from the kids" -- with toys everywhere, food on the floor and fingerprints on the walls.

We're told during weekends, there is a "minimal staff" at home -- a cook and security, and that's it. The homes they stay at are often in the hills or at the beach, and security's top job is making sure the kids don't hurt themselves.

The Hollywood Hills home Brad has owned for years will soon become home base. We're told the main advantage is it's completely enclosed and the kids can roam on the property.

The best line -- "They live like people in Simi Valley, only with more zeros on the price of the home."

Quote from TMZ..."We have really good spies in this department" & "We're told during weekends..."

So none of this actually came from Brad and Angelina?...If its true, where are the pictures...where are the proofs?...People are so quick to judge and make assumptions when we don't really know the TRUTH!!!...People call Angelina slut or homewrecker???...how many men has Jen Aniston dated since SHE split from Brad?!?!?...nobody calls her a slut!!...Angelina controlling?!?!....how the f**k do you know?...Do you live with her?...dumb...dumb people. This is an entertainment site...if news wasn't embellished or twisted .....nobody would care to read it because its BORING!!!

I'm a teacher, a foster parent, and a mother of three, and a house that's a bit messy, with fingerprints here and there and some toys scattered around on the floor, is the sign of a happy, lived-in, child-friendly home where kids can be kids, and the parents have their priorities straight. Same with a classroom, for that matter......the mother who would rather play with her children and enjoy them, rather than worry about whether or not her house is Martha-Stewart perfect according to some anal-retentive standards, is doing it RIGHT!!!!

everyone is jealous    

I have 7 brothers and sisters, and while we were growing up, we did not have the cleanest house in the neighborhood, but we had the funniest. All the kids wanted to be at our house, it was a fun and active house, something was always going on. Now that we are all adults, whenever we are all together we have the best time. Were we raised with rules, yes, did we learn respect, you bet. We all are college graduates, and we are all still married to the first person we married. While we were growing up, our parents where always the parents with "all those kids", and thank god they had eight because I am the youngest. It never bothered them, and it was them who felt sorry for anyone who had 1 or 2 kids. The Jolie Pitt family is happy...and if they have more kids, well then good for them. You can tell this family is committed to one another, and that will benefit the children more, than a spotless house.

The reason I even care to respond is not because I live vicariously through Brad or Angelina, but just because these people maninpulate the media for their own benefit. I do not believe any of the so called leaked reports on these two because their entire careers are about trying to send an imagine, an image that is not only hypocritical but full of holes. Anyone with even the smallest amount of logic can see through it.

1) Angelina was clearly sleeping with Brad on the set of the movie. SHE LIED for months about it, even suggesting she was with someone else and that she would NEVER sleep with a married man.

2) She knew to lock Brad down with children, and she knew adopted children wouldn't be enough. She got knocked up at her first chance. Very calculated. She has to be totally in control of the situation at all times.

3) The photo ops are RIDICULOUS! Can I just say that I really am tired of these publicity whores who cry and bemoan the media and yet whenever they are promoting a movie or need to keep the public interested in them, they totally put on this rainbow colored family because they think it will overcome the KARMA of their past sins.

3) Angelina couldn't adopt a child in the US, she has too many mental and drug issues. She BOUGHT maddox, as well as her adopted child. And while having an open family is great, it has been done MANY MANY times by people in the entertainment industry and not in the entertainment industry, she is trying to work that slant for everything it is worth.

4) Angelina is a hypocritical bigot. She put on blackface to portray a woman that could have been easily played by a biracial actress. Adopting a black child does not make you illiterate when it comes to race relations.

5) The hypocritical nature of her UN sanctioned sponsor of the poor. She comes in for maybe an hour in any of those places, takes some photos and goes back to living her very rich and privileged life. Give up the riches and live like one of us and maybe I will believe your charade.

6) The donations of charity to the millions they use to sell out their children to the public is FOR THEIR CHARITY, they are paying their bills and overheard expenses. Believe that part of the decision to sell photos in the public is to keep their name and image in the public eyes.

7) Angelina ia an addict. She's a heroine addict and everyone in the "know" knows about it.

8) Making the very bad decision to openly dismiss her biological daughter and elevate her adopted children. Instead of saying "I love all my children the same", this deluded hypocrite went out of her way to make light of her biological daughter. Look at the baby language between her and Shiloh, even the photo ops don't hide it. Watch when these children get older, there is going to be hate, there is going to be "acting out" and there is going to be a lot of dysfunction.

9) Angelina needs to "mother hen". Her own warped ideas of love are met through having the kids. She is in control, she is worshipped, she can choose the love she wants. If Brad disagrees with her on anything, she will not only fight him, but make sure in the end she has the last word. He better go along. Trust me, in 10 years I doubt this couple will be together.

10) If you do not believe that there are round the clock nannies for each of these kids, some of you are not using your god-given logic. Not only do the have nannies, they have security, cooks, maids and personal assistants. They routinely leaked reports to keep their "family" image in tact.

11) And finally, waiting to see the year or so taken off to take care of the kids. She keeps having kids, has the nannies to take most of the slack, then runs off and does another movie. She hopes around from continent to continent, Brad's on a set, she's on a set, but somehow I am supposed to be envious of her and her life? Right... Money doesn't but everything and in this situation, I am not impressed.

These people are ACTORS. They are paid to lie. They promote an image because it halps to sell the lie.

you really should...    

hey RHEMom...so you are condemning every single, solitary military family that serves the United States of America as military families, in general, move almost every year And since this does not make for a stable upbringing...than the USofA is responsible for the bad parenting by all it's military personnel by constantly moving them...I suppose we should be taxed for these kids' psychological problems as teens and adults as well!
