Jennifer Aniston Receives Another Honor -- But Does She Want It?

jennifer anistonA new 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll declares who else but Jennifer Aniston to be the world's most Eligible Single Woman. But is that *really* a title she should wear with pride?

Are you kidding? Of course it is!

Don't buy into the media's constant blathering about "poor Jennifer Aniston." Every time one of these silly polls is announced, they let loose with their stale commentary about being "dumped by Brad Pitt" and "unlucky in love." And then they get out the calculators to determine exactly how many years she's man-less.

So here's the question of the day: Why does the media, when talking about Jennifer Aniston, act like being single is a curse? And then when the focus is on someone like, say, George Clooney, the single status is revered and even envied?


If only we had that answer to this double standard, my life would be complete. Alas, all I can really add to the pot is the fact that Jennifer Aniston isn't sitting around feeling sorry for herself, so why should we?

She's ridiculously hot; she's successful; she makes a ton of money doing what she loves; she has lots of friends and family; she's constantly dating hot men. What's to feel sorry for?

And did anyone stop and think that the reason she's single is because she's too good for everyone else out there? (Although, whoops, she did date John Mayer, so looks like that theory isn't going to hold up this time.)

Oh, and in case anyone was interested, the other people included in the eligible single woman poll were: Halle Berry, Elin Nordegren, Betty White, Lady Gaga, and Elana Kagan. For the record: The five of them put together get less attention for their single status than Jennifer Aniston does by herself.

I don't understand the Jennifer Aniston haters/pity party, and I don't think I ever will. Is it really that threatening or hard to accept that maybe she likes being single?
