Of all the crazy fights to have, the eternal debate about meat is one of funniest and most prevalent. I’ve known friends who try to be vegan for a guy they just met, and I’ve known guys who pretend to love soy milk because of some cute little vegan hipster girl they’re trying to impress. Personally, I love meat. And I’m not alone – Angelina Jolie is an unapologetic meat eater too, even chowing down on rare lamb chops during interviews, and (gasp!) feeding her kids a parcel of meat too. But this meat craze seems to be upsetting Brad Pitt. Brad seems to want his kids to go vegetarian for health and environmental reasons. Brad wants Angelina to do it too, but she’s refusing on all fronts:
It seems Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie can’t agree on anything these days.
The couple, who have not been seen together in public since May, have been arguing over how to rear their rainbow brood.
Brad, 45, who has been a vegetarian for decades, wants 34-year-old Angie and their children to give up meat – which has caused a ruckus in their household.
‘Brad hates seeing the children eating meat and he’s annoyed with how much red meat Angelina has,’ says an insider.
‘He goes on about the damage caused by methane gases from cattle and that the family should go veggie but Angie says that’s never going to happen.’

The Daily Mail seems to claim Brad is some hardcore kind of vegetarian, but I haven’t really found any evidence of that. He admitted to trying out vegetarianism many years ago, and he’s also said that when he’s had to do something with his body (like for his bulk-up in Troy), he cut out meat. It’s perfectly possible he is still a vegetarian, or at the very least, he could eat meat sparingly. If he is trying to convince the family to go meatless, I have no problems believing Angelina totally refused. With that many kids, it’s probably hard enough to get them all fed in regular intervals without setting up food roadblocks along the way.
In other Angelina news, Page Six is reporting that a bunch of designer dresses meant for Angelina were stolen! Several designers had been sending Angelina’s stylist, Jennifer Rabe, their “best stuff”, and the pieces got stolen from Rabe:
THREE boxes of designer clothing were swiped from LA stylist Jennifer Rade Thursday night. An insider said Rade was collecting dresses for her star client, Angelina Jolie, who was scheduled to have a fitting with Rade the next day.
“Every designer who was sending pieces was trying to send their best stuff,” said the source. “Angelina was just starting the fitting process for pieces to wear when she begins promoting ‘Salt.’ ”
Rade didn’t return calls and e-mails, and Jolie doesn’t have a rep.

So if anyone sees a cracked-out waif wearing some glittery designer sack, you’ll know those dresses were totally meant for Angelina. Cough cough Lindsay Lohan cough. Even though it may or may not be Jennifer Rabe’s fault, I hope Angelina uses this an excuse to fire Rabe. Rabe may just be following Angelina’s orders on the dresses, but a better stylist could conceivably step up and do an intervention with Angelina. Anything to get her out of those shapeless, neutral potato sacks.
