So, for the moment at least, there’s no room for anyone else, especially for a Baldwin rerun.
Ditto for Angelina Jolie, who reportedly has been hanging up when her husband, Billy Bob Thornton, calls wanting to get back together. Who knows why? She didn’t hang up but hung on like a leech while they were married, the aggressive one in their rather sick-making public displays of the get-a-room variety — all overdue for a burnout.
Angelina — enthralled with her newly adopted son, Maddox, her job as a goodwill ambassador to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and her return role as Lara Croft in "Tomb Raider 2," now filming in Hong Kong — also just closed the door on her rekindled affair with Jonny Lee Miller, another actor and another ex-husband. It just didn’t hold a candle to raiding the tomb.
It’s a time for exes. In London, Raine, Countess Spencer, the stepmother of Princess Diana, is currently seeing her ex-husband, 66-year-old Count Jean François de Chambrun, to whom she was briefly married after knowing him for little more than five weeks. Practically before the honeymoon was over, she realized he was as poor as a church mouse and that didn’t go down well with the tea and crumpets, although Raine is well-fixed for money and a wonderfully resourceful woman. She once referred to this marriage as a "silly mistake" but, nonetheless, she seems to have inherited the unshakable belief in happy endings of her mother, romance novelist Barbara Cartland. Good luck, dearie.
Athina Onassis, the daughter of the late Christina Onassis who will become the richest girl in the world when she inherits more than $1 billion of her mother’s Greek shipping fortune on her 18th birthday on Jan. 29, seems determined to share her good fortune. She personally organized a children’s party for more than 40 orphans from Lussy-Sur-Morges in Switzerland, where she lives with her father, Thierry Roussel. At the moment, Athina is training for next year’s Olympics in Greece, in which she hopes to ride. May she have a happier life than her mother, who, for all her money, never seemed to get it right.
