Woe is Jennifer Aniston. This week is turning out to be almost as shitty as the week where she lost the 2nd generation Quackers the Duck Beanie Baby on eBay. Jennifer got shut down by that mean asshole Oscar and the wife of her dead first love came for her in the media. What’s next? She’s going to get Chickenpox? Actually, that is highly possible (no, it’s not) since she has actual chickens living in her backyard.
Jennifer Aniston said in a New York Times interview that her first love, actor Daniel McDonald, died from brain cancer and she believes that he is an angel looking over her and gave her the gift of Justin Theroux. If an angel wanted to give Jennifer Aniston the gift of true, everlasting love, wouldn’t they send her a bottomless bottle of tequila? But I’m digressing. If you haven’t read it already, here’s the quote that Jennifer gave to the Times:
“He was my first love — five years we were together. He would have been the one. But I was 25, and I was stupid. He must have sent me Justin to make up for it all.”
My version of CNN, Inside Edition (via UsWeekly), talked to Daniel McDonald’s widow, Mujah Maraini-Melehi, about Jennifer’s comments and she isn’t and will never be amused. Mujah threw an “Oh really, bitch” look at Jennifer Aniston and said in so many words that her late husband wouldn’t like being used for cheap publicity. In Jennifer’s defense, she never named names and it was The Daily Mail who did. But Mujah still isn’t happy. SHOTS FIRED!
“Daniel and Jennifer had a relationship over 20 years ago, when they were both still very young. She made a life choice, but so did he. I am sorry that Jennifer did not realize the treasure that was Daniel when she had the chance, long before he and I met and long before he died. It pains me to read the headlines that allude to her losing him tragically when in fact she was not present during his long and difficult illness.
Perhaps Daniel’s gift was to teach her how to love, and to appreciate what she has with Justin Theroux. Those of us who knew Daniel well can assure you that he would not have approved of all this uninvited attention due to his past relationship to Jennifer. I lost my husband. My children lost their father.”
Mujah also claims that after Daniel died in 2007, she found some old pictures of him with Jennifer. She contacted Jennifer, because she wanted to give the pictures back, but she never got a response.
When I first read Jennifer Aniston’s comments, I thought they were a little awkward and weird, but figured it’s what came out of her mouth after she mixed together a quick toke from her one-hitter and “trying to be funny.” (That’s the story of my blog, really.) I’m sure Jennifer Aniston will call Mujah to apologize about this stupid misunderstanding. Yes, Jennifer will probably only do that the next time (if there’s a next time) she’s in the running for an Oscar nomination and she’ll only apologize at a patio table at Villa Blanca while looking at old pictures of Daniel McDonald as the paps shoot away, but it could happen!
