jennifer aniston justin therouxWhat with all this Ashton and Demi drama, the rumor mill seems to have taken a rest from churning out Jennifer Aniston/Justin Theroux gossip. And, because of it, the world just hasn't seemed right. Alas, though, I have an Aniston/Theroux/Bivens tidbit to wet your beak. (The "Bivens" of course refers to Heidi Bivens, Justin's ex, who is/was supposedly heartbroken after Justin ditched her and rode off into the sunset with the former Friends actress.)

Here's the story: Supposedly, according to Grazia magazine, Aniston and Bivens had a "tearful," wine-filled meeting at a hotel in New York. The token "source" of this tale said, "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."

Mmm-hmm. Right. Okay. Sure, this meeting -- with these words -- happened. But it does get one thinking: Is Jen handling her man-stealing better than Angelina?

It's a weird question, in and of itself, as, well, it sort of raises another question: Is it possible to handle "stealing someone else's man" with aplomb and grace? My short answer to that would be "no," but if I had to pick, I would say, Jen and Justin have classed it up a little more than Brad and Angelina, post-scandal.

For starters, they haven't done a 200-page spread in a fancy magazine depicting (and foreshadowing) them as the perfect (sexy) family. Jen and Justin also don't constantly appear on the red carpet, hanging on to each other for dear life. And Jen has said, point blank, that she has no plans to get married in the near future.

Now, that's in her defense. Truth be told, the Brad-Jen-Angelina break-up/hook-up is pretty much impossible to top in terms of uncouthness. But Jen's not totally off the hook. She did technically get together with someone who was taken. And if she did have this so-called "meeting" with his ex (which I doubt), well, it's a little icky.

What woman in their right mind would want to sit there with their ex's current, talking about said ex? It sounds dreadful. Horrible. Embarrassing. So, if it does happen to be true (again, doubtful), well, Jen just moved a couple inches closer to Angelina. A couple.

Do you think Jennifer Aniston was wrong to start dating Justin Theroux?
