Angelina Jolie dishes about Brad and kids again

Is it just us, or does Angelina Jolie give the exact same quotes in every interview she does? Every comment in her appearance on “Nightline” sparks a case of déjà vu.

“It’s so hard with family in this business so we take turns working, so whenever one of us works, the other makes sure they’re there for the kids so we never have to split up the family,” said the Oscar winner. (Heard that before.) “If it’s over five days, everybody’s got to move in a big traveling mass.” (Heard that before.)

The “Salt” star talked about the importance of date night … just as we reported she did in Scoop! one year ago this week.

 Of whether their six kids want her and Brad Pitt to marry, she admits, “They have asked, yeah, because they see movies and people get married in the movies. Shrek and Fiona are married, you know?”

But “we’ve explained to them that our commitment when we decided to start a family was the greatest commitment you could possibly have,” Angie explained. “Once you have six children, you’re committed.”

Heard that before. Plus … didn’t Angelina decide to start a family when she was married to Billy Bob Thornton, way before she met Brad? Just saying.

Kim’s Addiction

Kim Richards’ nearest and dearest are evidently glad to hear the news that she has entered rehab.

“Kim’s alcohol addiction along with other substance abuse problems has been obvious for quite some time, but it’s really good that she’s finally getting help,” a friend confided to Us magazine.

During “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” “it became really obvious that Kim was not herself,” recalled the source. “It was really just a matter of when she would enter rehab. I think everyone is actually pretty happy she’s taking the proper steps forward to deal with her issues.”

“The relationship with everyone is so strained and it was because they weren’t going to coddle Kim — she had to know when she was ready to do this,” another insider explained. “She’s making the right decision.”

“Her family is relieved she’s getting help,” a People magazine source chimes in. “She has lots of issues. She needs help.”

Glad to hear it, and glad her friends support her.

No Custody Drama

Despite her troubles, Charlie Sheen won’t seek to strip custody from Brooke Mueller, Radar Online reports. Though the actor’s ex-wife was arrested on drug and assault charges, he evidently has no plans to take her to court.

“Charlie knows that Brooke is battling a horrible disease, but that she is inherently a good person, and great mother,” a source says. “Charlie won’t be going to court anytime soon to seek custody of the boys, or to make any changes in custodial time. Charlie is much more interested in helping Brooke, and knows that hauling her into court right now would not benefit anyone in the long run.”

We honestly can’t decide if this is a good thing or a bad thing.
