When I read that Jennifer Aniston was romantically linked with a new man, I took it with a grain of salt. Any time she has dinner with someone they are automatically a couple. Jennifer’s people were quick to kill reports that she was dating True Blood actor Christopher Gartin last week, insisting that they were just friends. But Woman’s Day has some VERY interesting info regarding the pair. Turns out Christopher’s soon-to-be-ex-wife is famous Hollywood party planner Jo Gartin, who originally hails from Queensland. Jo has been close friends with Jen and Courteney Cox for a long time, which makes Jen having dinner with Christopher a bit...awkward. When the mag asked Jo about Jen and Christopher’s relationship, she said dismissively, “I’m really not at all interested in it.” But what’s even more revealing is what Jo’s stepmother Robbie Ahlfeld said.
Keep reading . . . The magazine tracked down Robbie at her Gold Coast home and she explained:
It’s been difficult for Joanne. I saw [Today show reporter] Richard Reid talking about Jen being seen with a mystery man and I thought, ‘Is that Chris?’ And then I thought, ‘Surely not!’ It just seems so bizarre to me because Jo and Jen are such good friends. I find it very strange that Jen would do that [to Jo].
What do you think? Was it appropriate for Jen to go out to dinner with Jo’s estranged husband? Do you think they’re more than friends? Let me know your thoughts in comments!
