Roseanne Disses Brangelina and Jon Voight • 08.19.08
Comic Roseanne Barr unleashed a storm on her blog against Yonkers born Jon Voight and his estranged daughter Angelina Jolie.
As you recall, Jon Voight wrote a harsh critique of Barack Obama, saying the country would move in a socialist direction if he got elected. Well, Roseanne fired back on her blog:
“Jon Voight is a frightened little girl in a pink ballet tutu, who acts like Obama just wandered in from the rain forest with a bone thru his nose and a communist pamphlet in his loincloth,” she said.
Ok, that was pretty funny.
But then, Roseanne goes after Angelina Jolie, a former Sneden’s Landing resident.
“Your evil spawn Angelina Jolie and her vacuous hubby Brad Pitt make about $40 million a year in violent, psychopathic movies and give away three of it to starving children, trying to look as if they give a crap about humanity as they spit out more dunces that will consume more than their fair share and wreck the earth even more,” she said.
Oh heyyyel naw. Don’t make me do my ghetto girl finger snapping at you Roseanne. Or cuss you out in Hindi/Farsi/Arabic.

Jon Voight slams Barack Obama • 07.30.08
Yonkers native Jon Voight had harsh words to say for presumptive democratic nominee Barack Obama this week.
“If, God forbid, we live to see Mr. Obama president, we will live through a socialist era that America has not seen before, and our country will be weakened in every way,” he wrote in an editorial for the Washington Times.
Ouch. To no surprise, Voight is a conservative and endorsed Rudy Giuliani for president this year.

R.I.P. Marcheline Bertrand • 01.29.07
After a long battle with cancer, Angelina Jolie’s mother, Marcheline Bertrand, died Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, the Associated Press reports. She was 56.
Bertrand, a former actress best known for her roles in Lookin’ to Get Out and The Man Who Loved Women, raised Jolie and her brother James Haven after divorcing from actor Jon Voight in 1978. Three years later, Bertrand purchased a home at 182 Woods Road in Sneden’s Landing, a few miles from where Jolie attended elementary school in Orangeburg.
According to a statement released by the family, Jolie, Haven, and Jolie’s boyfriend Brad Pitt were with Bertrand when she passed away. A private funeral is planned and the family is asking that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Women’s Cancer Research Institute at Cedars-Sinai.
