Let's start with the bare bones of the story. Jennifer Aniston is still waging her one woman Oscar campaign, so she had an interview with The New York Times. The part I'm going to cover is this, where she talks about her boyfriend who was The One:
“He was my first love — five years we were together. He would have been the one. But I was 25, and I was stupid. He must have sent me Justin to make up for it all.”
Now, I'm covering this story from Life&Style, and I find their title to be hilarious--"Did Jennifer Aniston Diss Brad Pitt When Talking About An Ex Boyfriend?".
Because, of course, it never occurs to Life&Style to ask the question of whether or not Jennifer was dissing Justin Theroux--the guy that she's engaged to. Her true lurve. The guy who converted her from Indian jewelry to Giant Diamond Rings (I knew that tacky ring wasn't her style. I would've told him to bring it back to Cracker Barrel where it belongs). The guy who managed to get her to vacation somewhere other than Cabo for a few days (Italy).
Which she is. Dissing the guy she's engaged to--Justin Theroux. How would you feel if your fiance was giving interviews, romanticizing about the one that got away, when she can't/won't do the same for you. I suppose you'd feel the same as if she said that you weren't the love of her life.
But really. I find it hard not to cast shade on an engaged woman telling the world that an old boyfriend is the one that got away, when she's engaged. And the most romantic thing she's ever said about said fiance is that his eyeballs are beautiful. Like I'd be worried about our future together. What is the point in getting engaged, getting married, if you don't even believe that the person you're marrying is it for you?
Some people don't believe in monogamy. They have no desire to be with the same person for years on end. And that's fine. But don't get engaged/married when you feel the exact opposite of the views that getting engaged/married espouses.

Another day, another dollar, and Jennifer Lopez hustles hard for another dollar. She's got another season of American Idol (I don't know anyone who's watched that show past when Simon was on it) to hustle, and she picks a great (for a gossip lover, at least) statement to garner some attention.
"I'm a great girlfriend. And wife. Just picked the wrong f-cking guys."
I'd be cheering for her, if there weren't those pesky rumors that she was dating Caspar Smart again (yeah, don't believe her). At this point, I'd believe it. J-Lo is incapable of being alone. She just puts off that vibe. It's not that she's had one or two back to back relationships, it's that all of her relationships have been back to back (and I'm being generous in saying one ended and the other began, as two separate entities). She's never been alone. And I don't doubt that she's dating that little weirdo. Again.
And about her being a great girlfriend/wife. I feel like that's her way of absolving herself of responsibility. On some level, we all did/do the best we can in relationships, and that's all we can do--but we don't do that 100% of the time. And no matter how a relationship ended, whether or not it was 'your' fault, I think you can always find something that you can work on. Something that you can learn from, and avoid in your next relationship. Basically--I'm sure Mark Anthony is not a basket of sunshine and roses 100% of the time. And neither is J-Lo.
I guess I'm one of the few who doesn't see this as a big deal or anything shocking? Angelina is still (I'm assuming) promoting "Unbroken" (which has made a little over 100 million worldwide), overseas, as she spoke to an Italian magazine--"Io Donna" (smart move, considering Louis Zamperini's family came from Italy, and coincides nicely with the promotion/screening at the Vatican) about her wedding details.
" Before the wedding in France with the kids, Brad and I were already married in California. As Americans, we couldn't marry legally in France. One day I said to Brad "Let's just meet up at 4:30?" I called a justice of peace, and we signed the documents. "
I don't know much about the actual legalities of getting married, etc, but I am not surprised that they got married in secret-secret, before the 'real' wedding. I do wonder how long ago they signed those documents. It would be funny if it had been shortly after they had gotten engaged, or even right before she had her double mastectomy surgery. I suspect we'll never know.
Also--this goes to show how media savvy Angelina is. Instead of parceling out personal details about her wedding, interview by interview, like some celebrities do, she's telling us stuff that's interesting to hear, but gives away no real personal detail. Like we know that they got married in a small chapel that's on their land. She wore a dress designed by Versace, there were very few guests (and the only famous guest was a blurred out David Fincher), and their son, Pax, made their wedding cake. The majority of these details are explained by the pictures, and Angelina has basically been reiterating the same details, over and over again--but saying it differently. She's good at that.
Kim K. spoke to E! on Friday, talking about her alleged fertility issues. As in she's struggling to make baby #2 with Kanye.
"It's been more challenging to get pregnant the second time around. When you're not planning it, it happens. It's just how God works. And when you want it so bad, it's not happening."
I'm of two minds on this one.
First off, Kim did not like being pregnant. Which is not something that I am bashing her for. Pregnancy is different for all women. Some have it really easy, some are a little uncomfortable, and some are downright miserable. Kim was miserable. And I would be too if I was always wearing those ridiculous outfits that she did, while pregnant. I'll never forget seeing this--her swollen, 'pregnancy' foot in a shoe that was obviously way too small (and uncomfortable) for her.
I remember telling my HS Social Studies teacher that I thought the part where you see the swollen skin/feet around the shoe was actually part of the shoe, and flesh colored. But no matter what she says, however she tries to pretend, she did not like being pregnant with Nori. I'm finding it hard to believe that she's so excited for another one.
But, I'm also going back to her relationship with Kanye. I think he legitimizes her, somewhat. She's no longer famous for releasing a sex tape and getting a reality show out of it--she's a famous (albeit, delusional) rapper's wife. Even if they divorce, she will always be known as Kanye's Ex Wife. She won't just be that Spoiled Reality Star that had a show once upon a time, and was popular for a certain time period. She'll always be able to capitalize on being with Kanye.
And not only that, but she seems to drop everything for him, and go. They are rarely in the same area, together, (just like Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston), yet it seems that when they are, it's Kim that's going to him. Just like when she was pregnant with Nori, and was going back and forth to Italy, where Kanye was working on his album/fashion line with his *cough* "friend", Riccardo Tisci. Bottom line is that she seems to try and please him. So I'd believe that she hates being pregnant (just like she hates the tight, fugly clothes that Kanye picks out for her), but will get pregnant again--for Kanye.
Also--I just don't believe that she's having fertility issues. I'd be a lot more sympathetic, and a lot less skeptical, if she hadn't had that storyline on her show a few years ago. She went to a fertility specialist with her sister, Khloe (who *is* struggling with infertility), and got tested. The doctor said she was fine. So I'll believe that she's not getting pregnant fast enough for what she or Kanye wants, but I doubt that she's having serious trouble.
Harry Styles is apparently dating Victoria's Secret model, Nadine Leopold.
Us Weekly reports,
"Harry has been getting more serious with Nadine,” one source tells Us of the One Direction star, 20, who first stepped out with the Austrian in Los Angeles this past November after meeting her through CAA agent Jeff Azoff. The insider adds Leopold and Styles aren’t exclusive yet, but they’re “spending lots of time together."
I don't even think I can put my snarky tinfoil hat on for this. It's just one giant *sigh* for me. Of course a young, male boy-bander is going to try and rack up some 'man' points by dating a pretty, if nondescript, model. Because of course. All I can say is that at least he's young, and isn't some creepy 40 something trying to hit on young girls. But I'm sure he could've dated someone from his hometown or something. He hasn't been famous for that long. I just don't understand how he's the cute one--his hair isn't all that and a bag of chips.
I just don't understand the fascination with Victoria's Secret models. It seems like every time you hear of a celebrity dating a model, they come from there. Maybe VS offers classes on how to snag a celebrity or something.
