Life & Style: Jen Aniston betrayed by Courteney Cox, all over Brad


Remember last week, when we reported that Brad Pitt and Courteney Cox ran into each other at a concert, and instead of ignoring each other like high-schoolers, they acted like the somewhat-mature 40-somethings that they are? Well, that story, with some added girl drama, is Life & Style’s cover story this week. I should point out, Life & Style is the only tabloid not running Kate and Jon Gosselin as their cover story. So I’ll give them points for originality, at least.

The headline is huge, which proves the little theory I have going that the bigger the fake drama, the bigger the headline. Life & Style screams, “Jen Betrayed… By Her Best Friend”. I suppose exclamation points would be crass. Sub-headline: “Courteney spends the night with Brad, causing a huge falling-out with Jennifer”. Uh… if Brad spent the night with Courteney, I think it’s Angelina who should be pissed. Cover Awards has the run down of the article:

Life & Style Weekly follows up last week’s cover featuring Trista & Ryan’s baby with yet another untimely cover topic.

This week it’s about Jen being betrayed by Courteney Cox. By now, many of you who follow celebrity news know that Courteney bumped into Brad Pitt at a concert recently.

They appeared to have a nice time catching up.

Well, guess what?

That turned into Life & Style’s cover story for some inexplicable reason.

I simply don’t get it.

While there continues to be heat on Jen – the friendship between Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston is not a full cover story.

It might have been five years ago – but certainly not today.

[From Cover Awards]

Not much new information, but it is interesting. Now Magazine (story via Showbiz Spy) is running the same kinds of story, basically saying that because Brad is hanging out with both Courteney and Jennifer, Brad is persona non grata in the Jolie-Pitt household. According to their sources, “Angelina Jolie is said to be furious at rumors partner Brad Pitt is back in contact with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. The Changeling actress went mad when she heard Pitt had spoken to Aniston’s best pal Courteney Cox at a recent Chris Cornell gig in Los Angeles.” Angelina then told Brad: “[He’d] humiliated her for the last time and that if he wanted to go back to his boring shallow life with Jen, that was fine by her.”

His “boring shallow life with Jennifer” is something I’ve always wondered about. It’s no secret that Brad was a much more “boring” person with Jennifer. The only trips they really took were to Mexico, and they just seemed to spend their time together getting matching highlights and (allegedly) getting high. Though there’s no doubt in my mind that Brad loves his kids and loves the chaos of the big family that he chose, I wonder if he really does miss that “boring shallow life with Jennifer” at times.

Here’s Jen on the film set of ‘The Baster’ in New York on May 8th. Images thanks to .

    Brad called his life prekids a deadend so I don’t think so, plus he gets to hang out with a lit more cooler people

  2. Lem says:

    OMG the nerve!

  3. Jocelina says:

    It would be so much funnier if they had claimed that Brad Pitt and Courtney Cox “spent the night together” in a sexual sense. Can you imagine the headlines that would follow? That would keep me entertained all summer.

  4. Annie says:

    Oh wow. Lol.

    Slow news week Life & Style?

  5. Ashley says:

    Get over it

  6. DD says:

    Kaiser, I think Brad seemed to have more of a personality when he was with Jen. Since he’s been with Angelina he’s more of a pretentious, dry fellow. Anyway I didn’t see that headline coming, I guess they are getting bored of the triangle so they are turning it into a quadrangle.

  7. kap says:

    Are we back in High School with if you’re her friend you can’t be mine? Heard Cox and Aniston had a little falling out over either A) Aniston refused to be in the Cougartown pilot that Cox is producing and starring in and/or B) Aniston is the lone hold out for a Friends movie. Doubt either is true, but who cares. The truth never stopped these tabs before.

  8. Obvious says:

    Jocelina, cna you please write all the headlines for the rest of the summer? Your ideas are much fresher and amusing than the ones they have. Although it is refreshing not to see Jon & Kate EVERYWHERE.

    Things I’m tired of:
    Paris Hilton, Speidi, LiLo (the whole family)+ronson, twilight, brangelina/Anniston, Jon & KAte, Octomom…Can we find new things to obsess about now please?

  9. Codzilla says:

    Lem: LOL! I know! That BITCH.

  10. Carrie says:

    How can Jen feel betrayed when all the other rags are reporting that Jen and Brad have been having secret meeting and phone calls??

  11. Jones says:

    What to believe, what to believe..I think I’ll give the old 8-ball a shake and see what the magic ball says about Jen, Cort, Bradley, Bradley, and St. Jolie..

  12. Alex says:

    The tabs are all contradicted themselves and it is real funny to see that, cause it tells you that they are all full of sh*t and that the people who believe everything that are written in the tabs are full of sh*t as well

    And oh yeah right, Brad misses going to Mexico and getting highlights and tanning and smoking weeds. The man is happy where he is and it is to bad that some people can’t see that but all they want to do is bring him and Angie down; which is not going to happen, but they can sure try, they have been trying since they got together what 4 years ago.

  13. Alex says:

    I think the tabs etc are frustrated with Brad and Angie, cause when they got together, everyone thought that it wasn’t going to last, but Brad and Angie prove them wrong and continue to prove them wrong, so now they are on the attacked, writing all the stories about break-up, he(brad) wants Aniston back etc, but the more they continue to write the bs stories the more Brad and Angie get stronger in their relationship and their family. I bet they continue to have a good laugh over all these stories, I know I would.

    And one thing to know about Brad, when he is done with a woman, he don’t go back, so the idea of him going back to Aniston is laughable.

  14. RobN says:

    Really Alex, go outside once in awhile. Get some fresh air. Note the people around you going about their real lives.

  15. Chicamorena says:

    Aniston comes across as a very needy and controlling individual so I can see her having a hissy-fit if her former best friend is on friendly terms with her ex. I say “former” best friend because they don’t seem to be as close as they used to be.

    Maybe Courtney got tired of Aniston trying to control her the way she tries to control everyone else.

  16. patty says:

    i’m so confused.

  17. HashBrowns says:

    Lol Robn.

    @Alex: So…how many times do you seen Brad and Angelina a week?

    Anywho, this story is total nonsense. I don’t think Brad was more “boring” when he was with Jen. By saying it was “no secret” you are inferring that it’s the truth when really it is a matter of opinion.

    I think he was different was he was with Jennifer, for sure. By the way, having a favorite vacation spot does not make a person boring. It just means they like a particular place in the world.

  18. someone says:

    The only reason the tabloids are running with this story is because we haven’t seen a million pics of B/A out on the town or with the kids for a while…and Jen broke up with they have to make up some dirt to sell thier mags..I don’t pay for them…and I don’t believe a word they write.

  19. Chicamorena says:

    I can accept her having a favorite place in the world. What seems odd is that with all her money, she seems to have no desire to go anywhere else. It’s like her world begins in Malibu and ends in Meh-hee-co, with frequent side trips to Rodeo Drive.

    The tabloids are in meltdown mode. They’re losing a shitload of loot. OK has already converted from a gossip rag and is trying to reinvent itself as something else — exactly what else, I’m not sure yet. has a story on that. US Mag has a story this week featuring In Touch’s bullshit cover articles about Brad and Angie breaking up over the past four years. I stopped counting at 30. I’m waiting for In Touch to reciprocate with a piece about US mag’s own bullshit cover stories — although US has been getting more circumspect over the past year or so.

  20. HashBrowns says:

    @Chicamorena: “She seems” is the key expression there. No one knows why she likes Mexico so much. No one really knows where she goes when she isn’t promoting a film or filming, anyway. She could, for all we know, be taking secret trips to different parts of the world and not want to be followed or bothered.

    It bugs me tremendously when people automatically shoot for the negative conclusion about someone they don’t even know.

    And even if she only likes to travel between here and Mexico…so what? That doesn’t make her boring. It means she likes Mexico. Or hates flying long distances. Or likes Los Angeles. Having a lot of money doesn’t automatically equal wanderlust. Maybe she just likes where she is. Why is that weird or problematic?

  21. Marianne says:

    Once again, the super dramatic tabloids and their funny stories. Good God, I just want to know why the people who write these stories think that every female human being on Earth wants to get into Brad’s pants. He’s not even that hot. He’s not aging very gracefully and he’s got 6 kids. Not the hottest thing in the world. Times changed, folks. Brad was the dream man of girls in 1999. Now? I don’t think so.
    Am I the only one who finds creepy the interest of some fans in anything Brangelina related? Some people act like stalkers. It’s scary. I’ve never seen such thing.

  22. The first thought that comes to mind is that Courteney was pumping Brad for info about his life. Talk to an old friend for 15 min and you know whether he’s happy or ready to commit Angicide. The fact that she talked to him so long makes me think he was unhappy and she was trying to get more dirt.

  23. Hieronymus Grexx says:

    Any estimate on the shelf life of this f*cking story?

  24. Codzilla says:

    Alex: OK, now I understand why you sound so unstable. You’ve been “smoking weeds” instead of actual pot. See, marijuana is a specific plant, not just a general term for the crap you pull out of the garden. So maybe if you make the switch, you’ll realize how ridiculous your obsession with these idiot celebrities seems to the outside world.

  25. AC says:

    “The little theory I have going that the bigger the fake drama, the bigger the headline…”

    LMAO, so true!!

  26. Casey says:

    What a crock of shit!!

    Like Aniston is going to expect her best friend not to talk to him? That’s not even high school, more like 3rd grade.

    The whole story is total BS.

    Chicamorena, you talk like you know Aniston personally. You sound as whacked as this story.

  27. bleh says:

    Hey Hashbrowns, it’s called having an opinion. Get over it. Why do you have to defend Jen like she’s your sister? Why do you have to quibble with every person’s opinion as if they are SO WRONG?? Opinions are just opinions and nothing more. Not everyone HAS TO adore Jen. And, no I’m NOT a fan of the BRangelina, either.

    Personally, I DO think going to the same beach in Cabo over and over is BORING. I also think that Jen makes burnt toast look smart & interesting by comparison. I’ve read a few of her interviews and she sounds like a self-help book–she talks in cliches and uses therapy code words. I don’t think many other celebs sound any better, but a few of them are worth listening to. Aniston is not, in MY OPINION.

  28. Jacks says:

    The only thing more boring than Jen and Brad’s life together are posts revolving around them. I cannot believe people are still taking sides over this stupid crap. None of us personally knows ANY of these people and all the allegations are getting old. I know the point of this site and to gossip and be catty – I have no problem with that – but it’s like reading the same comments over and over. Jen’s the best – no, Angie’s the best. Ugh, I say they all suck.

  29. Karen says:

    Don’t bother bleh. Fangirls are pretty much nuts. There is no reasoning with them. These people talk trash on other celebs., but when someone says something negative about Aniston/Jolie, out comes the claws. These people are living in their own little world, one where they think they know these people and feel connected to them on a personal level. Creepy.

  30. Cath says:

    I have decided the tabloids are going to drive that poor girl to her doom. I don’t particularly like Aniston but I feel so sorry for her.

  31. Faye says:

    Jen is not the type to get pissed about crap like that…hope courtney got some inside info she can share with Jen…like how Brad still respects her and has feelings for her would be the ultimate!!!

  32. Chicamorena says:

    Hash, it’s neither weird nor problematic. It’s just boring. Same ole same ole, know what I’m saying?

    Casey, what is your problem? I said Aniston seems to be needy and controlling. If that got your drawers in a bunch, you’re the one who’s whacked.

  33. Chicamorena says:

    To Faye: Why would it be “the ultimate” if Brad still respects Aniston and has feelings for her? I respect my ex and have friendly feelings toward him, and vice versa. But in no way do we want each other back. We’ve each moved on to other people and we’re both very happy.

  34. cleveland says:

    Chicamorena, don’t you know that it’s against the law to have any opinions not liking Aniston? If you find her boring then you are DEAD WRONG!, crazy, a big bully, too interested in her life, need your own life, jealous, nasty, hateful, a rabid Jolie-Pitt lover and CRAZY. I agree with jacks, the whole triangle is dull.

  35. truth-SF says:

    LOL cleveland, how right you are. I haven’t read a gossip rag in an eternity, and judging from these kind of post, it seems the tabloids haven’t gotten any new gossip info in over 4 years.

  36. HashBrowns says:

    @Chicamorena and others: Yea, it’s your opinions but you make them seem like facts by using declarative sentences and verbs. I’m not defending her like she’s my sister. I don’t know her personally, have never met her and probably never will. I feel zero personal connection to her.

    However, I do have issues with people who constantly and consistently attack strangers for doing absolutely nothing wrong. I think I get the instinct from teaching and seeing this kind of behavior from 6 year-olds.

    Having an opinion is having an opinion and it goes both ways. It’s my opinion that you are attacking her by saying she’s boring just because she likes Cabo San Lucas and goes there a lot. That doesn’t mean that your opinion is evil or stupid or wrong or crazy-it just means I disagree with your opinion.

    Pot meet kettle folks: I have an opinion too and it doesn’t agree with yours. That does not mean I’m some nutjob who thinks Aniston is my best friend.

  37. whatever says:

    Hash Browns, why are you so obsessed with defending Aniston? You obviously have something for her, because any time someone dislikes her, you write a novel to defend her. Something is up with that. You and the Brangelina Bunch need to give it a rest. People have opinions. No need to take them so personally.

  38. Casey says:

    Chicamorena & others: I’m not that big of a fan, but the stuff you people come up with about someone you don’t even know personally is whacked.

    I would never invest that much time ripping on someone. If they irritated me that much, I wouldn’t read a word about them, much less waste my time posting on it. It is pathetic that you invest so much time in negativity.

  39. Chicamorena says:

    To Hash: You seem, however, to have no problem at all jumping to the defense of someone you claim not to be that big of a fan. That is truly whacked.

  40. Casey says:

    Because she’s not doing anything but living her life

  41. bleh says:

    Oh give it a rest with that “she’s not doing anything but living her life” excuse. You can make the same excuse for many other celebs, but they are all such attention addicts. My opinion is that Aniston engages in the same PR stunts that other celebs do. I think her behavior hanging all over Mayer at the Oscars speaks for itself. She lives by the media–the girl never met a magazine she didn’t like, she’s always giving lame interviews about nothing, she lives to pose for the paparazzi in her bikini. I esp. love the Mayer PDA pics in the hotel pool when she had movies coming out. Her PR man even emailed Perez Hilton telling him to stop badmouthing her. Aniston is a Hollywood player and not the girl next door. Like Lainey says, she is a fraud. I dislike frauds–same goes with all the other Hollywood frauds. I wish they would stop clogging up the media space with their sad drama, so people could focus on talented actors who really deserve more attention.

  42. Casey says:

    You claim she doesn’t deserve any attention, but you’re quick to write an essay, trashing her when something is printed about her. Pathetic.

  43. bleh says:

    Casey, calling someone “pathetic” only makes you look bad. You engage in these little battles, but can’t muster up an intelligent response when someone responds. When you have nothing else to say, you resort to name-calling like a grade-schooler. Hello pot, meet kettle–

  44. anon says:

    and trashing someone you don’t know so thoroughly after claiming she doesn’t deserve the attention she gets also makes one look bad.

    or, at least, that you like to talk about of both sides of your mouth.

    which is it? does she not deserve the attention, or does she deserve so MUCH of your attention that you had to write an exposition on how much she doesn’t deserve the attention?

  45. bleh says:

    Anon./Casey? Why don’t you proofread before you hit send? “Talk about both sides of your mouth” and “exposition” makes no sense whatsoever.

    So, now you are arguing about the length of my post? Do you really think that means anything? This is a gossip board, people type in their opinions (long or short). No need to go off the deep end when someone’s opinion doesn’t coincide with your own.

    And, I didn’t “trash” Aniston.(How dare anyone express a negative opinion on her!?) The only name I called her was a fraud. Besides that, I made points with supporting examples, which you choose to ignore.

  46. Casey says:

    bleh, you might be impressed with your posts, but you never addressed the only question I posed, which is why spend so much time on someone you claim to not like and giving them the attention you think they don’t deserve?

    It doesn’t bother me at all if someone posts something with some merit, but as far as I can see you’re just recycling old news. If it makes you happy to spend your time trashing people, then by all means continue. I just don’t find it interesting to post about people that annoy me.

  47. bleh says:

    Casey, I can ask you exactly the same question. Why do you spend spend so much time defending an actress?

    And, not everyone is like you, I write about people I like, people I don’t like, whatever.

    And, I didn’t ask you to be impressed with my posts. I’m clearly not impressed with yours, esp. since you resort to name-calling when you don’t have anything better to say.

    Not everyone is in love w/your favorite celeb. Get over it. Of course, you wouldn’t see my post as having “merit” b/c you are biased. You’ve never criticized Hash Browns for writing equally longish, detailed posts, have you? It’s because her opinion matches your own. (How dare anyone criticize Aniston–the horror!)

    If you don’t like my posts, feel free to NOT respond. No one is forcing you to defend Aniston.

  48. Casey says:

    Are you serious? Why wouldn’t I read and respond to comments on a celebrity I like? Following a celebrity you don’t like is the odd behaviour that you still haven’t addressed.

    Again, it’s a simple question. Why spend so much time following someone you claim to dislike?

    While you have a problem with being called pathetic, your answer to everything is “Get over it” In your little mind, is that intellectually superior?

    You repated yourself again about (How dare anyone criticize Aniston–the horror!) I addressed that and you commented. Reading comprehension low?

    You really do make me laugh!

  49. Tonya says:

    I think that if courtney did stay with brad she had her husband with her also, because i did read that brad pitt had ran into courtney AND her husband at the same concert she supposedly stayed with him (brad) at, and that line about angelina should be the one pissed off is soo true, jennifer shouldnt be the one pissed off cause her and brad are not together anymore,…..if i were brad i dont think i would miss my boring shallow life with jen

  50. ash says:

    Casey, you are a total jerk! Not everyone likes crazy, stupid, boring MANiston, you troll! Go watch her latest rom-com disaster, MANagement. I heard like 5 people saw it. She sucks and she can’t act. Hahaha

  51. Casey says:

    ash, if you’re over 10, you should be embarrased by your post. You’re calling me a troll while you’re namecalling and saying things like hahaha?

    Mommy needs to watch you closer.

  52. Pufft says:

    Oh, this is sadly entertaining. I’ll be the first to admit that the only reason I read Aniston/Jolie/Pitt posts is because the comments are pukingly beautiful.

    And yes, from the spectators stand point, Round 1 definitely goes to blech (sorry Casey)…

    Ding! Ding! Round 2!

  53. anon says:

    bleh, if you don’t know what an “exposition” is (in writing terms) or what “talking out of both sides of your mouth” means, I suggest you run to the bookstore for a dictionary.

    or, you know…google?

    “I think her behavior hanging all over Mayer at the Oscars speaks for itself. She lives by the media–the girl never met a magazine she didn’t like, she’s always giving lame interviews about nothing, she lives to pose for the paparazzi in her bikini. I esp. love the Mayer PDA pics in the hotel pool when she had movies coming out. Her PR man even emailed Perez Hilton telling him to stop badmouthing her.”

    for someone who clearly doesn’t like this woman, you sure have a thorough knowledge (and MEMORY!) of her behavior, of what pictures of her have been published, and what he pr team is up to.

  54. Pauper says:

    I should say that: “Courtney Cox, how could you?!” Why did you do to your best friend, Jennifer Aniston? Come on!
