Welcome to the Smart Set. Every morning we bring you the gossip coverage, filtered. Today: Old widow Aniston might be engaged, take a look at Will & Kate's schedules, and Jon Hamm has been robbed.
In case you've been living in a cave or have been, y'know, like reading real books or taking walks with friends or something and missed the news, sad lonely spinster Jennifer Aniston and her current man friend Justin Theroux have been on a European tour together, snuggling in Paris, canoodling in Rome, fighting gangsters in Albania. (One hopes, at least.) Well, they got back yesterday and at the airport Aniston was seen with a big ol' diamond ring on her hand. It was on her right ring finger, not her left, so maybe it's not an engagement ring? But come on, it's totally an engagement ring! They were scouting wedding locations in Europe! Jennifer Aniston may soon not be the old loveless crone that she's been for years and years! Wouldn't that be something. Meanwhile in England, Brad Pitt lays awake at night, trying to fall asleep, but too busy worrying about his troubled movie World War Z. And so he was awake, blinking in the dark, when Angelina stirred in bed next to him and said in her sleep, with a whisper of conviction, "Jussssstinn..." and then fell silent. [Page Six]
Curious to know how William, future Master of Britain, and his bride, Lady Kate the Merciful, spend their days? Well here's a little rundown of their schedules (shed-you-oools) that probably isn't exactly accurate. It's filled with the usual boring things — Wills heads to work at the helicopter factory or whatever it is that he does, while Kate stays home and eats oatmeal and has charity news read to her. The couple might meet up for dinner if Wills is available, but otherwise Kate might see her sister Pippa (if Pippa isn't busy waving guns at photographers in Ibiza or whatever) or dine alone, the heavy silverware clanking on her plate, the tick of a grandfather clock her only company. So, ho hum, basically. Of course this schedule is a bit of a PR move — it's so genteel it's boring. The reasoning for the ruse being that much of the public, well those that don't understand British customs anyway, would probably be shocked to see the real schedule, which goes something like "2pm: Beheading at Tower of London, make speech about loyalty while standing in the blood. (Kate). 4pm: Callously eat sweet meats and cheeses while hearing report from trusted vizier about starvation among the peasants, say 'Damn curs,' when referring to said peasants. (William & Kate). 7pm: Declare Primae Noctis after seeing fetching young chamber maid in Piccadilly (Harry pretending to be William)." That's the real deal. And that's what makes royalty so great.
