angelina jolie daughters birth mom drama

Talk about an awkward situation.

On Tuesday, the biological mother of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's adopted daughter Zahara vocalized her interest in becoming reconnected with her flesh-and-blood. Huh.

As you may recall, Angie initially adopted the Ethiopian-born child as a single parent in July 2005 and, at the time, it was believed that Zahara's birth mother, named Mentewab Dawit Lebiso, had died. By 2006, the Fight Club actor had also legally adopted the little girl.

However, in 2007, Mentewab came forward and revealed she wasn't dead. Sadly, it was too late for her to regain custody of her child as the adoption was "legal and irrevocable." Nonetheless, as Brangelina's messy divorce and custody battle have made headlines across the globe, Mentewab is eager to reconnect with Zahara.

During a candid chat with DailyMail, the famous 12-year-old's biological parent begged:

Home is where the heart was

Believe it or not, it's been nearly four years since Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's last renovation — but that doesn't mean the reality show has completely moved on to the pop culture graveyard.

In fact, the Ty Pennington-hosted home improvement program has been making headlines all week… for just about the most destructive reason ever!

That's because we're hearing the Friday Family from the penultimate episode of the ABC series actually kicked out five of their seven adopted children AFTER the makeover was complete!

According to local reports out of North Carolina, Devonda and James Friday of Charlotte had just adopted five young brothers and sisters at the time of taping to keep the siblings from being separated into the foster system back in 2012.

However, we're now hearing that all of the children — including eldest kids Chris and Kamaya, whom have since dropped the Friday surname — were sent to different group homes within a year of their episode's airing!

Luckily, the brother/sister pair has now come forward to share their heartbreaking story, with Chris telling WSOC-TV:

PETA Wants You To 'Grab A Pussy' — But It's Not What Donald Trump Had In Mind!

PETA is purr-fectly twisting Donald Trump's gross words in order to do some good for the kitty community!

After audio leaked from 2005 of the GOP nominee telling Billy Bush that he grabs women "by the p*ssy" and kisses them without asking, the animal activists are totally taking advantage of the mass hysteria caused by his controversial comments.

The People for Ethical Treatment of Animals is kicking off a new campaign in Manhattan, encouraging New Yorkers to "grab a pussy!"

But, they aren't talking about groping women; what they REALLY want you to do is adopt a cat from a local shelter, as you can see from their PAW-dorable new poster (above)!

PETA President Ingrid Newkirk told Us Weekly why they decided to piggyback off the Apprentice alum's disgusting remarks, saying in a statement:

"The sensationalism of this election has rendered many other important issues invisible. We hope this twist in our approach will cause people to open their minds to the crisis facing animals, and open their home to a beautiful cat from a shelter."

The HIGHlariously cute campaign will kick off at some point before the November 8 election. Will U grab a pussy?!
