The Twitterverse Reacts As Jen Aniston Has Awkward Interview
Jennifer Aniston’s interview on British TV Wednesday had the Twitterverse cringing. Things got a little awkward when she and Reese Witherspoon appeared on the BBC’s “The One Show” to talk about their Apple TV+ series “The Morning Show.”
Aniston and Witherspoon probably won’t be taking inspiration from the BBC hosts for their roles as TV anchors. At one point during the interview, Aniston was cut off by presenter Jermaine Jenas, who decided it’d be a great segue to ask Witherspoon if she’s a morning person by saying that Aniston “pretty much sold it to [him] that she’s not a morning person.” The look on Aniston's face said it all.
“Did I sell that to you? Did I get a good deal?” Aniston quipped to some awkward laughs. Witherspoon kept the awkward exchange going, and confirmed that yes, she’s more of a morning person than Aniston – which actually works out for their filming schedule! The Twitterverse is split between thinking it was the host or Aniston who had the wrong attitude.

Erika Jayne Given Opportunity To Voluntarily Pay Back Victims
Erika Jayne has an opportunity to make good on her involvement in estranged husband Tom Girardi’s legal woes. Investigator Ronald Richards –whoshe’s not too fond of– is offering the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star the chance to “voluntarily” pay back the victims of his alleged embezzlement.
As you’ll recall, Girardi Keese is in the hole for more than $101-million… and $25-million of that went to Jayne’s company EJ Global LLC. Richards says it’d be a “miscarriage of justice” if she walked “completely free” with the $25-million in client funds, and says she should step up to the plate for the victims by paying back the expenses she “improperly deducted” on her LLC and personal returns.
“Erika [says] we were only interested in fees. It is not about the fees, it is about the victims,” he says in a statement. “It’s just a voluntary offer. If she doesn’t pay, she won’t get us adding the 10 percent [to her voluntarily compliance payment.] We will still move forward with the lawsuit.”
