There are something in live that I would like to be witness to, but from a distance and with a pillow to cuddle for comfort and hide my face behind. According to Grazia (via Page Six), Jennifer Aniston recently had a “tearful” meeting with her new boyfriend’s ex. Aniston has been dating Justin Theroux for a few months now and the two are said to be serious, but Theroux was either just leaving or just recently out of an 11-year relationship with Heidi Bivens. Considering Aniston famously saw ex-husband Brad Pitt leave her for Angelina Jolie, it seemed strange that she would take-up with a guy who was already spoken for, and she has denied that there was any overlap. Alas, that is probably not of any comfort to Heidi, who is said to be heartbroken about the split.
So what went down on their little date? According to a source, ”Jen told Heidi that she understands what a painful time she has been going through and explained that she wanted her to know, hand on heart, that she would never steal another woman’s man. … Heidi apparently got quite tearful during the meeting, as it was understandably a lot of take in.”
Hmm, at first I was, like, “How dare Jennifer Aniston impose herself upon this woman to explain her side? The only person who should be explaining himself is Justin.” But then again, having been through a remarkably similar situation myself (my ex left our nearly 5-year relationship and immediately took up with another woman), I wouldn’t have minded hearing from my ex’s new chick. I was wondering what she was thinking anyway, why not get the truth (hopefully) from the horse’s mouth?
Regardless of how smoothly it went, talk about awkward. I do not envy Jennifer, Heidi, or any of the other celebs involved in awkward run-ins in this slideshow.
Oh damnit. It was R. Kelly’s birthday and we totally forgot to send him a singing telegram! No worries. The man took care of it for us. Keep reading »
Here’s the thing about drinking — it’s a multi-tasking activity and it makes lots of things even better. Here are just some things I really enjoy doing with a glass of wine in my hand:
- Taking a hot bath while reading a gossip magazine
- Liveblogging award shows and “The Bachelor”
- Cooking and eating
- Playing fetch with my dog in our building’s long hallway (since our apartment is small and it’s too cold for the dog park right now)
- Reading in bed
For the record, these are all frequent activities in my life and I will miss my friend Vino when I am doing them during this period of sobriety. Because I’m also giving up men — particularly the dating and sexing of them — I know I need to find new activities to put my energy into, especially things that wouldn’t be improved by, say, my favorite cocktail of Cristalino champagne and grapefruit juice.

I should probably find this video of Snooki giving an 11-year-old a makeover in her likeness — heavily applied bronzer, poof, and all — really offensive. She’s a kid! She doesn’t need to look like a Jersey guidette with alcohol running through her veins! But I don’t know, I found this makeover kind of adorable and silly and funny. I mean, Snooki is a cartoon character. Like Dora the Explorer. What’s the harm in that? Keep reading »
For every step forward Gwyneth Paltrow makes in her attempt to improve her image, she takes two steps back. Though I was warming up to ol’ Goopie again, after that adorable and funny guest appearance on “Glee,” I am back to full GP attack mode thanks to her latest GOOP newsletter. I skipped last week’s GOOP once I realized it was just another endorsement of a cleanse that makes you s**t your brains out, but this week I was enticed to click with the promise of “a day in the life of real working moms.” I’m not a mom, but I want to be and that work/life/parenting balance is of interest to me. Who would these real working moms be? How varied would their advice and routines be? Sigh. I should have known better. GOOP showed me a day in the life of, ahem, a venture capitalist Gwynnie met, bestie Stella McCartney, and Gwyneth herself. Girl couldn’t trot out a poor or even a middle class mom? I know she’s got a cleaning lady! Keep reading »
