The Tabloids Can Relax-Jennifer Aniston is Engaged

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux

Jennifer Aniston has been spared a fate worse than death, at least according to the tabloid rags that have hounded her ever since she and Brad Pitt divorced–she won’t be an old maid or spinster.


Reportedly, she got engaged to actor Justin Theroux, who she has been dating for 15 months since the two met on the set of the movie Wanderlust. (Don’t remember that movie? Neither do I.)


Though Aniston had repeatedly asserted many, many times that she was over Pitt leaving her current fiance Angelina Jolie, and though she seemed to move on with her personal life and career, the media wouldn’t let the “sad sack” narrative it had created for the wealthy and beautiful actress die. Ignoring all evidence to the contrary, countless websites, magazines, and blogs continued to insist that Aniston was downright miserable being single.


Obviously, I’m happy for Aniston and Theroux, who despite all the efforts of the paparazzi that hound them, have managed to carry on their relationship in private. And they seem genuinely happy together.


But even if Aniston had never received a proposal and ring from Theroux, she still would’ve been fine. After all, she’d still have her looks, friends, career, and money.


I just hope that there will be a pre-nup.
