Oh, come on, I’m kidding with that headline! I’m a staunch Team Jen supporter, as is Selena Gomez, who couldn’t contain her excitement when meeting the actress at some swanky Hollywood event and instead of speaking to her, went and hid. Well, that was smooth.
Recalling the experience in an interview with Radio Disney, Selena recalled:
“I ran away from Jennifer Aniston when she said, ‘Hi’, I was terrified of her. I was scared, so I ran away and I’m really embarrassed about that.”
“I didn’t know what to do – it’s Rachel.”
I think lots of people in my generation (and the one below mine, apparently) have had that big Friends connection – who didn’t grow up watching it? Who doesn’t watch it still every time one of the 8,000 stations that syndicates the series plays it, no matter how many times you’ve seen the episode? Who remembers the Pottery Barn episode (which is one of my favourites)? I rest my case.

Oh no they didn’t! Except, you know, they apparently did. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got engaged ages ago, but Mister Chanel just got their 90-day wedding license last week and they could be tying the knot this May. Hurrah! Everyone loves a wedding… except for Jennifer Aniston, whose own ceremony to fiancé Justin Theroux is supposed to be happening around the same time. Escandalo!
From The Sun:
Brad got a wedding licence at the end of last month — which stated they must marry in 90 days.
The deadline could see the big day for the pair clash with the nuptials of Brad’s ex JENNIFER ANISTON — which would spark a bitter bun-fight over celeb guests.
A source said: “Brad and Angelina left themselves short of time to sort out their wedding because of the licence deadline. A few months is nothing when you’re planning a wedding — especially one as major as theirs.
“Everything points to them getting married in May just after the Cannes Film Festival ends, because they’ve got their hearts set on tying the knot in France.”
There were also apparently some rumours that Jennifer was going to attend Brad and Angelina’s wedding as a “gesture of goodwill” – which, for the record, f-ck that – but if he’s doing all this to rain on her parade, he can forget about her turning up.
“All that goodwill would go out the window if Brad’s wedding date comes close to hers. Jennifer will see it as an attempt to upstage her and there will be a battle over Hollywood guests.
“She knows they will be judged on who had the better wedding by pulling in the biggest stars.”
Y’all know I am adamantly Team Jen and I think Brangelina are total assholes (you know, besides all that amazing charity and activism they participate in) and somehow Jen got all the stick for being cheated on, but whatevs. I’d go to both weddings, just for the free booze.

America’s sweetheartplans to secretly take Justin’s last name. “She plans on changing her name to Theroux. She likes the way it sounds and jokes that [Jennifer Theroux] sounds very posh.
When Ms. Aniston married Brad Pitt — wait hold on, does that not seem like a million years ago? Can you even picture them as a couple anymore? Does anyone else feel really old? Anyway, when they married she legally changed her name to Jennifer (Joanne) Pitt but still went by Jennifer Aniston. In this case, with her upcoming marriage to Justin Theroux, she’s thinking about not only legally changing it, but changing it “for the public” as well. Like when Courteney Cox changed her name to Courteney Cox-Arquette. And then in the first episode of Friends after she was married, every cast member had “-Arquette” added to their name. Okay now does anyone else feel really old?
Do you think she’ll do it?

Oh, Jennifer Aniston. She had such a bad rap as a serial dater and desperate harpy – that is, before she settled down with fiancé Justin Theroux (which earned her the title of homewrecker, considering he was in another relationship at the time). Still, I can’t help but like her for reasons I can’t explain, so don’t ask me. Perhaps it’s a mix of my attachment to Friends, slight pity/solidarity over the whole Brad/Angelina thing and jealousy over how amazing her hair is at all times. Either way, I’m Team Jen. Is that still a thing, or did it stop in like, 2009?
Anyway, as Jen and Justin prepare to walk down the aisle, she’s apparently tried to nip any problems in the bud before they start by sending the couple to a marriage boot camp, where according to Grazia, they had to partake in therapy sessions, couples’ massages and screaming their feelings out. Sounds… fun? A source told the magazine that “she thought it would be a good idea to start married life rid of any problems”.
However, UPDATE! According to HollyScoop, Jen’s rep denied any such boot camp attendance, saying, “It’s all just more rubbish! Not true at all.”
Well, as if they’re going to admit it! But listen, whatever works. We can all use a little therapy sometimes, I guess?

From the Mirror:
Jennifer Aniston raised eyebrows at her engagement party with fiance Justin Theroux, 41, last Sunday, when she passed up on the chance to enjoy her favourite alcoholic drinks and stayed well away from the raw fish on the giant sushi platter. The actress has also cleared some of her work for next year from her schedule.
And now these pictures of Jen wrapped up in bulky clothes have emerged, many people Stateside believe she’ll be making an announcement any day now. At 43, Jen’s biological clock has been ticking louder and she will finally catchup with her old Friends Courteney Cox,48, who has an eight year old daughter, Coco, and Lisa Kudrow, 49, who has a 14-year-old son, Julian.
Jen and Justin are due to marry at the end of the year after getting engaged in August, so any potential addition can only be an added bonus.
A source said: “Jen loves a party, so it was definitely noticed at her engagement event that she was only on water. People have also been commenting on her changing her work plans for the foreseeable future – she said it was to concentrate on planning the wedding and to be closer Justin, but now it’s being suggested it’s to make way for a baby. It would be a fantastic piece of news for the couple to end the year on – she seems so happy recently.”
Jennifer pulled out of her involvement in the film Getting Rid of Matthew last month and now it’s been reported that she no longer will be appearing in Miss You Already, which was due to be filmed in London.
Jennifer has previously said she can’t wait to be a mum: “I’ll be singing from the mountain top. Let me have the moment where I get to say, yes, in fact, I’m having a baby. I just want to say, “Everybody, relax! It’s going to happen”.”
Alright, you guys. Is this special lady pregnant or not? Because really, putting any and all negative personal feelings about Jennifer Aniston aside, don’t you think it would be a pretty nice thing for her to finally have that baby she’s always wanted? Wouldn’t that make you feel like the world is kind of complete all at once? I know even in the cold, pitted cockles of my heart, I’d smile. Even just a little bit and if it were just because the baby ended up with Justin Theroux’s Botox brow.

All of this pregnant and not pregnant talk over the last few years, and seriously, who really knows? I had to stop and think for a minute whether or not she and Justin Theroux even got married yet (they didn’t, right?), but this time I think it might actually be safe to say that Jennifer Aniston is actually pregnant. I mean, look at that photo. She’s even carrying herself like she’s got a bun in the oven, and ladies, for those of you who have had a bun in the oven (or significant others of those who have had a bun in the oven), you know exactly what I mean.
Yeah, I think Aniston might actually be pregnant this time, and even though she kind of makes me want to scratch my own eyes out (it’s either that or dust and/or pet dander allergens, I don’t know) sometimes, I think it’d be a really, really nice thing for her to have a baby. I mean, aside from debilitating self-esteem issues, she seems like a nice person. She’d be a nice mom, too, I’ll bet, when she isn’t freaking the kid out by crying all night long over Daddy’s “long business trips” that he has to take every couple of weeks. That’s probably a good way to f-ck a kid’s life up, I’ll bet.
Jennifer Aniston—pregnant or what?
