Should we call it diva-in-mouth disease?

It's a pity what age does to older women (and men) in Hollywood: They either cut themselves up, surgically, or they just let their tongues do the slicing. Or both.

Take Joan Collins' recent remarks against poor, innocent Jennifer Aniston, in which the former Dynasty star, wholly unprovoked, labels Brad's ex "cute, but I wouldn't call her beautiful. She's no Ava [Gardner] or Lana [Turner]."

Jeez, why not add what a cute personality Jen has, just to top it off, bitch? More importantly, what does Aniston herself have to say about the diss?


A rep for Ms. A. stated they were "aware" of the verbal slap from Collins, but they felt there was "no need to engage with that nonsense."

Ouch! Kinda like something Alexis Carrington Colby herself would snip back, huh?

Can't say that's a bad move for Aniston, not to engage, really. Particularly since the hussy who stole Brad from Jen is precisely how Collins got into the whole beauty discussion in the first place. When pointing out Hollywood's reigning beauties, the former B actress declared, "I have to say, there aren't that many good-looking actresses around today. I mean, there's Angelina Jolie and there's... Angelina Jolie."

Collins then immediately went on to disparage Aniston.

What was she thinking? Probably the same thing Faye Dunaway was thinking when she went for Hilary Duff's jugular awhile back. Though at least then there was the connection of Hilary having recreated one of Faye's most memorable starring roles in Bonnie and Clyde.

This stuff with Collins? Random bitchery. Which can be explained pretty simply: jealous, jealous, jealous.

Hey, Joan, take a note from your sis, Jackie, write this crap out, don't speak it. Otherwise, it makes you look cheap and even older than you already are.
