Hollywood’s been hit with a Brang-pocalypse.

The Internet went wild Tuesday after TMZ broke the news that Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt. The A-listers coupled up in 2004 and married in 2014. Jolie is seeking sole physical custody of their six children. Pitt told PEOPLE, “what matters most now is the well-being of our kids.”

Like the rest of the world, Jenny McCarthy was shocked by the celebrity dirt.

“OMG. I thought for sure Brad would have hung in there,” she said Tuesday on The Jenny McCarthy Show. “Brad is like a family guy. His main goal was to have a family, babies. So I don’t know. I don’t know if she has just gone off the deep-end, which is my theory.”

The Jenny McCarthy Show airs weekdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET on SiriusXM Stars (Ch. 109).

Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen also touched on the scandal while interviewing director and choreographer Adam Shankman, who lives near and knows Brangelina.

“Well obviously I’m not going to talk about them, but what has happened to the neighborhood — yesterday we woke up, and I s*** you know, 300 cars up and down our street. And I was like, ‘What is going on?'” he said. “And you just saw people — the paparazzi, I realized they were paparazzi, all of them — but they carry these giant suitcases which are lenses for cameras. And they’re like trying to climb over the walls and all of that. It was just a disaster.”

Jason & Jenny airs Thursdays at 4 p.m. ET on SiriusXM Radio Andy (Ch. 102).

Taylor Strecker wondered if Pitt would possibly try to rekindle his relationship with an old flame and debated with Kelly Bensimon whether he’d choose Jennifer Aniston or Gwyneth Paltrow. They settled on Aniston, who they say would take him back despite being married to Justin Theroux.

“She’s like, ‘By the way Justin Theroux, you’re a seat-warmer, you’re a seat filler, Brad is back,” she joked.

Wake Up With Taylor airs weekdays from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. ET on SiriusXM Stars (Ch. 109).
