Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux: Headed For Divorce Because of Brad Pitt?!

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, Brad Pitt is a single man, having separated from Angelina Jolie back in September of 2016.

His first wife, Jennifer Aniston, is very much not single, having married Justin Theroux in 2015.

But that hasn’t stopped the taboid press from reporting that these old flames are eager to rekindle their romance.

Of course, for these two A-listers to get back together, that means the pesky C-lister getting in their way will need to be disposed of.

Thus, gossip columnists the world over are employing the trick most often used by screenwriters of romantic comedies in which one half of the meet-cute pair is already taken.

Yes, they’re leaning hard on the “Uh, her husband is a douche and they were already having problems before the hero entered the picture” narrative.

According to Life & Style, Jen and Justin have spent most of the past year apart.

The magazine claims they only recently reunited for a New Year’s Eve trip to Mexico … and they brought a huge group of friends along to make the situationless awkward.

“They chose to go with friends during this particularly difficult time during their marriage. A week alone would’ve been too strained,” the insider adds.

“Had they been alone, the insider suspects, they would’ve been dealing with some uncomfortable conversations. They felt it would be easier and more relaxed to have some friends come along.”

The source adds that Aniston and Theroux have basically come to terms with the fact that they’re marriage is coming to an end, but they’re still trying to hide the truth from members of their inner circle.

“The truth is that the marriage has been crumbling,” the insider says.

“It’s not make-or-break time for them and their marriage.”

Of course, all of this couldn’t come at a worse time, as Aniston has reportedly fallen back under Pitt’s spell in recent months.

“Brad and Jen have bonded like never before over the past year,” a friend of theirs tells In Touch.

“And they’ve been helping each other through their respective troubles.”

Look, we suppose there’s a possibility this is really happening, but it all sounds a little too close to what magazines like In Touch and Life & Style would want to happen for it to be entirely believable.

The only thing this story is missing is Brad Ross-ing out on Jen and justifying baning Jolie with “We were on a break!”


Anthony Weiner & Huma Abedin Call Off Divorce: What Could Go Wrong?!

These days, Anthony Weiner is serving a prison sentence for sexting a teenage girl at the nadir of what’s surely one of the most rapid and infuriating political downfalls in recent memory.

There was a time–not all that long ago–when the former congressman seemed to have it all, including the love of his beautiful and equally successful wife, top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

What made his many discgraces so much more frustrating than most was not only the fact that he targeted a minor, but also that he seemed to receive countless second chances, only to repeatedly betray the trust of his supporters and his impossibly merciful wife.

Eventually, of course, both the public and and Abedin could take no more of dishonesty and depravity, and he lost it all.

His political career went up in flames.

He was sentenced to 23 months in prison.

And in what may have been the most painful loss of all, Abedin filed for divorce

But now it seems that Weiner may once again be on the receiving end of Abedin’s compassion.

The New York Post is reporting today that the Weiner and Abedin have officially withdrawn their pending divorce case.

According to the newspaper, Abedin was scheduled to appear in Manhattan Supreme Court this afternoon for a compliance conference.

Instead, her attorney submitted paperwork signed by both her and Weiner, agreeing to remove their case from the sourts … for now.

Lawyers for Abedin says this doesn’t mean she’s had a change of heart, insisting that she Abedin simply needs more time to work out a settlement with Weiner before the case goes before a judge.

“In order to ensure the proceedings have a minimal impact on their child, the parties have decided to attempt to reach a settlement swiftly and privately,” says attorney Charles Miller.

For a professional opinion, the Post consulted with divorce attorney Michael Stutman, who is not involved with the case.

Stutman confirmed that the withdrawal does not necessarily mean that Abedin and Weiner have called off their divorce.

He says that they may have decided to postpone the hearing for tax or other economic reasons, or to allow them more time to work out a custody agreement for their 6-year-old son.

Of course, with how much Weiner has gotten away with over the years, we won’t be convinced Huma is really leaving him until the papers are signed.


Teresa Giudice: Vacationing With a Lover?! Openly Prepping for Divorce?!

While Teresa Giudice spent her 11 months in prison, it was reported numerous times that Joe Giudice didn’t exactly keep his hands to himself.

Now that Joe’s taking his turn behind bars for a couple of years, some say that it’s Teresa’s turn to cheat. Others say that it’s okay, because she’s getting a divorce from Joe anyway.

A report says that Teresa’s no longer keeping things with her lover under wraps — that she’s openly vacationing with him. How soon is she getting divorced?

They say that if you can’t do the time, you shouldn’t do the crime.

They also say that no one is above the law.

While the latter has yet to be demonstrated for Presidents, it’s definitely true that starring on The Real Housewives of New Jersey doesn’t make you above being dragged into court and sentenced to prison.

Years before Countess Luann de Lesseps was arrested for kicking a police officer, Teresa Giudice became a Real Housewife of the Big House.

(Side note: we would be very intrigued by a television series by that name)

The judge was kind enough to, for the sake of the Giudice children, sentence Teresa and her husband, Joe, to serve non-concurrent sentences.

While Teresa was locked away — she ended up serving only 11 of her 15 months — Joe was with the couples’ children.

And, reportedly, he was with other women who were not his daughters.

By which we mean that he was allegedly cheating on Teresa Giudice left and right.

Teresa said that she didn’t believe those rumors but …

What are we to make of this photo that she shared over the weekend?

Teresa posted this photo of herself with Loren B. La Forge-Kyriakoulis at dinner, captioning it:

“Dinner with a great friend lots of laughs @laforgekyriakoulis # webothlovefood #greekfood”

Now, that might be a totally innocuous social media post.

(Teresa’s actually been uncharacteristically quiet on social media, lately)

But La Forge is a divorce attorney. Is Teresa posting a photo with a friend … or a hint that she’s gearing up to leave Joe?

To top it all off, RadarOnline reports that not only is Teresa cheating on Joe, she recently took her secret lover on vacation.

“Teresa went to Cancun for the holidays with her boyfriend,” a source reported to them.

And apparently they’ve reached a place in their (alleged) relationship where she’s fine having this mystery guy around her family.

“Her dad was even there, so she’s hardly hiding it anymore!”

Is this the case? If so, it sounds like she’s gearing up to let Joe rot behind bars.

Honestly? We’re not necessarily convinced that she’s cheating on Joe. They have a long, complicated relationship, but not even her frenemy Danielle Staub believes that Teresa’s cheating.

(And not, we think, just because Teresa Giudice apologized in a recent episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey)

If Teresa’s dinner with La Forge was really about divorce, then it may be that Teresa’s gearing up to leave Joe … for reasons other than a lover of her own.

For one thing? Joe is an Italian immigrant. He’s not a US citizen, and may end up getting deported when his prison sentence ends. She may be preparing for that drama now.

Or, again, she may have just been out to dinner with a friend. We don’t know.
