Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are finally going through with it this time. They're tying the knot. And everyone on planet Earth is ecstatically happy for them. Well almost everyone. Jennifer Aniston, not so much.
Yes, the rumors that Jennifer Aniston is happy about Brangelina's impending nuptials have, reportedly, like Mark Twain's death, been greatly exaggerated. Rumor now has it that La Aniston is anything but glad to hear that her nemesis of the past seven years is going to marry her ex-husband. That is, the ex husband who divorced her, moved in with the nemesis, had six kids, and apparently never looked backÂ—except to make a few unkind comments about his marriage for which he later apologizedÂ—sort of. Adding insult to injury is the fact that while Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have enjoyed seven years of romantic happiness and familial bliss, Jennifer Aniston has had a series of "failed" relationships with Vince Vaughn, John Mayer, and British model, Paul Sculfor. On the other hand, "Brad and Angelina grow more in love with each passing year."
Of course, there's Jen's relationship with Justin Theroux, but sadly that romance may soon go the way of all the others. Rumor has it that Theroux is starting to get boredÂ—erÂ—need some space. And it's said that he's "still in close contact with his ex-girlfriend Heidi Bivens." Whatever his problems are, Justin doesn't seem to be in any hurry to propose. Poor Jen.
According to one celebrity website, the real question is: "Is it even possible to feel joy at the news that the woman who stole your husband is now engaged to marry him? Is Jennifer just so much better than the rest of us?"
Good grief. It's hard to believe that a woman as rich, famous, beautiful, sophisticated, and presumably intelligent as Jennifer Aniston would still be obsessing over a 7-year-old divorce. She's said many times that she does not regret her marriage to Brad Pitt. At one time they were happy together. And then they weren't. It happens. That's life. As for the husband thief, Angelina Jolie, for the umpteenth time, men are not earrings or iPhones. They cannot be stolen or controlled. No woman can make any man do anything he does not want to do. Not even the Salt star can do that.
Hopefully, Brangelina's marriage will put an end to the Jolie-Pitt-Aniston melodrama. As for the Aniston-Theroux melodrama, good luck with that, Jen.
