Brangelina Babies Make A Lot Of Money
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s newborn twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline have set a new record, before they can even roll over. Selling a whopping 2.6 million copies of People Magazine, it has been the biggest selling issue in seven years and is the 4th highest newsstand seller in the magazine's 35 year history (First was the Sept. 11 issue at 4.1M, second Princess Diana's death issue at 3M, and third JFK Jr.'s death issue at 2.8M). Apparently People and Hello split the astronomical $14 million price tag for the pictures. Well worth it to them since it crushed People's average sales are 1.5M copies per week and their 8.8M monthly web hits soared to 6M unique visitors within 24 hours!
