Should you avoid the ex or confront her head on if friends are saying ‘I do’?
On the surface, Angelina Jolie is the embodiment of a secure, confident woman. Is this why she let ‘life partner’ Brad Pitt attend a friend’s wedding when he knew that ex-wife Jennifer Aniston might be there? Should you follow in her footsteps?
Although there’s no definitive word that Jen actually was a guest at producer Brad Grey’s April 16 wedding, it’s safe to assume that she might have attended, as she and BP launched their Plan B production company with him in 2002 (the two Brads later moved it to Paramount after the Brad/Jen split). It was a shock, then, for friends like Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Jennifer Lopez and Gwen Stefani to see his manager, Cynthia Pett-Dante, on his arm instead of Angie.
Anyhoo, let’s say Jennifer attended the wedding for argument’s sake, and that she had even called Brad to let him know she’d be there. Should Angelina have stayed at home then?
Let’s face it: when you’re Angelina Jolie, no other woman is a threat. Brad divorced Jen, after all. Although their relationship might be amicable, she’s not ‘the one that got away’, a woman you should live in fear of. That said, it is better to be safe than sorry.
Perhaps Angie is the exception (not the rule), but I think that she should have gone to the wedding and played nice; she should have at least acknowledged Jen. Although I suspect Brad isn’t in any great rush to be run back to his ex, your situation might be different. When you put two people together who have been in love once, add alcohol, subtract yourself and stir, you never know what might happen. Why tempt fate?
