Jennifer Aniston Is Now Single, And Everyone Is Saying The Same Thing
Proclaiming whether you were Team Jen or Team Ange was almost as big a commitment as declaring that you were Team Edward or Team Jacob.
The easy and right answer? Team Jen and Team Jacob all the way.
The fiasco of Brad Pitt cheating on his then-wife Jennifer Aniston with his on-screen Mr & Mrs Smith flame, Angelina Jolie, rocked Hollywood and the world alike, as people struggled to believe how Pitt could do the dirty on a gal like Jen.
If Aniston couldn’t hold down a man, what hope did the rest of us have?
From the divorce onwards, ‘Brangelina’ essentially defined Aniston, with people constantly painting her as a woman who was forever unlucky in love.
When she found her other half in Justin Theroux and tied the knot, we all breathed a sigh of relief. Now Jen could live the life she always deserved! She could finally get her happy ever after.
But, alas. It was not to be.
Jennifer and Justin earlier released a joint statement to announce their separation after two and a half years of marriage. They stated:
“In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation. This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.”
A sad, sad day.
When we got into the office this morning, one of my colleagues suggested than Aniston must be to blame for this most recent break-up, and that she “is incapable of holding a man down”.
While I consider my esteemed colleague’s statement as unfair, incorrect, and ill-considered (any man would be lucky to be called Jen’s boo!), it is worth pointing out that Aniston is now only one divorce away from her on-screen partner, Ross’, total…
However, perhaps this divorce is actually a blessing in disguise. Jen’s single… Brad’s single… You thinking what I’m thinking?

But is Brad really worthy of Jen’s forgiveness?
Y'all really think Jennifer Aniston about to go sniffing around Brad Pitt when he got 10 kids and an alcohol addiction? Meanwhile she has a yoga body and a Smart Water deal w/ 0 kids in sight. She good.

In case you all forgot: Brad Pitt fell in love with another woman and begun a relationship with her while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston. He left her to be with someone else. Why would anyone want her to get back together with him?
