Brad Pitt Disagrees With Melissa Etheridge! Says Angelina Jolie's Surgery Was "Empowering!"

brad pitt disagrees with melissa etheridges comments

Many have applauded Angelina Jolie for her strength since announcing her double mastectomy last month, so we were more than a bit surprised when Melissa Etheridge spoke out and said the decision was made out of fear and not bravery.

Brad Pitt was recently made aware of the singer's comments, and understandably he couldn't help but disagree.

Pot-Bellied Piglet Is Too CUTE!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooPig

Pot-bellied Piglet

Tiergarten Delitzsch, a German zoo, has a new, super cute resident rolling in its mud…

A pot-bellied piglet!!

This little baby is extra special because she's the only survivor from her litter.

Sadly, four out of the five piglets died due to birth complications.

The mother is doing well now and is taking extra special care of her one baby.

The little baby, blissfully ignorant to how close to death she was, spends her time frolicking in mud puddles, not a care in the world.

She's a little miracle of life and she's so adorbz!!

We just wanna squeeze her!!

Tornado Survivor Finds Lost Dog During Interview!

Filed under: Sad SadMama NatureDogAmazing

This is absolutely incredible.

We previously mentioned that a powerful tornado destroyed a large area of Moore, OK.

Dozens are dead and even more are left without homes.

It's an awful tragedy, but sometimes, there are a few rays of hope that shine through all the destruction.

A woman was giving a TV interview at her destroyed home, talking about how she lost her dog and knew he was buried under the rubble somewhere.

Then suddenly, one of the reporters spots something under some debris…

Her dog!!

The woman quickly goes over to help free her pup from under what was once her home.

Check out the video (above) to see dog and owner reunited live on the air!!

It may have taken over a year, but Kevin McGuire FINALLY got his wish!

You may remember the then-18-year-old leukemia survivor's story from February of 2012, as his sister set up a Facebook page to invite Taylor Swift to join him at his prom!

Although the country cutie couldn't make the date, she instead offered to bring him as her date to the 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards, which he initially accepted…but by April, he couldn't go because of a fever brought on by his chemotherapy!

Thankfully, that didn't stop T-Swizzle from keeping him in her thoughts, and he was FINALLY able to get that date with his idol after she made sure to invite he and his family to this year's ceremony!

Ch-ch-check out the picture of the pair together right beforehand (above)!

Doctor From French Survivor Commits Suicide After Contestant Suffers Heart Attack & Dies

thierry costa(1)

Omg! How sad.

Staff doctor, Thierry Costa from French Survivor took his life yesterday in Cambodia after contestant Gerald Babin suffered a heart attack and unfortunately died.

The late 25-year-old went into cardiac arrest on the first day of filming the show's 12th season after he completed two challenges, which included jumping off a boat and swimming to shore to compete in a tug-of-war on the beach… and once Babin was done with the challenges, he experienced arm cramps and immediately fell to the ground.

Costa then ordered an emergency helicopter, but after the production team didn't want to give Gerald immediate attention because they didn't want to stop filming, he was taken away on a boat, rather than a chopper because it was considered "too costly."

The only problem with this was that "unjust accusations and assumptions [were] made against [Thierry]," which initially led to his suicide.

Ten days after Babin died, Costa left a note and committed suicide, he wrote:

Animal Abuse Survivors!

Filed under: Sad SadAnimal Cruelty

It's a sad fact of life that some people are AWFUL to animals!

We have no idea how someone could see an animal and want to do anything other than kiss and hug them and give them treats all day long!!

But some terrible people just don't have souls we guess.

No matter what sort of abuse was thrown at these animals, they kept on surviving.

So we celebrate these survivors who beat the odds even when life (and some terrible people) tried to keep them down!
