Jennifer Aniston Bought Herself An 8 Carat Ring


I know Justin Theroux works. He gets a job now and again. I know he would want to impress Jennifer Aniston with some huge brick of a ring if he did propose, but he supposedly managed to cough up the dough to buy an 8 carat diamond ring for Jennifer. He must have been saving up all his lunch money or all the money he saved from dating and living with the same woman for 14 years before cheating on her with Jennifer but never buying her an engagement ring but buying one for Jennifer within a year of first dating her. I fear that was a long sentence. Seriously though, did he really have that kind of cash or did Jen help him out there? You know like by saying that she had done some shopping and dropped a few hundred grand on herself and oh, by the way we are engaged now.

Hmmm, 8 carats. Really? I remember when Jen was married to Brad, she usually only wore her wedding band. She's never struck me as a big jewelry kind of girl. I guess time will tell.

Frufra said...

Are there pics of this rock? Yowza - how could you wear such a monstrosity?

Doesn't this dude (who, and I know you know, I think is smarmy) make a living mostly writing for movies and such? He could have the cash, who knows? Regular dudes buy outrageous rings for their girls all the time - DeBeers and their two (or was it three?) month salary ad campaign bullshit.

Maybe Jen did like my sister did, and went CZ in order to have a bigger stone - ha! I know, not likely, huh?

RenoBlondee said...

My husband met me when he was 38years old. He had had two long term, live in relationships, but never wanted to get married. He met me and we were married in six months. It does happen.

Trey said...

Enty, I can handle your hatred of most celebrities, but not Jen. Let the woman be happy.

Frufra said...

Ok, kinda OT, but what do y'all think about women who "upgrade" their engagement ring/diamond after hubby starts making more money? That shit always breaks my heart a little.

I have a modest (less than a carat) stone that was purchased by my sweet husband via a bank loan (got money to drop a new engine in his 82 Chevy truck and buy me an engagement ring). I would never give that ring up - it was such a symbol of love and faith in things to come.

Frufra said...

Awwww, Reno, that is a sweet story of true love :-).

SueRH said...

LEAVE JEN ALONE ALREADY!

ablake said...

Or maybe..just MAYBE a jeweler hit him up and offered him a huge discount if he ever needed an engagement ring. Imagine the publicity it would be for someone like her to show her ring every chance she got and mention the designer if/when asked.

Crazy idea, I know. It's not like something like that ever happens in Hollywood.

BitterBlondin said...

Well, Justin's not exactly dirt poor is he? He's been in the business for a while.

caralw said...

Who cares who bought the ring? All of this is speculation, anyway. I hope they are happy.

Silly Girl said...

Totally agree with ABlake. The jeweler will probably receive a ton of publicity around this and will profit from it even further. Especially if there are knockoffs! Better an Aniston knockoff than a Kardashian one!

Ihatechemistry said...

Ummm...even People Mag doesnt have any info on the ring, but enty is so desperate to trash Jen he is quoting Life&Style magazine. Pathetic.

Amber said...

Frufra - my boyfriend and I have had that conversation a number of times. We're both against it. Worse yet, when the guy gets a ring and the girl trades it in for something else. I mean...ideally the guy would have an idea of what you like before buying it, and he would know you well enough.

Even if I get engaged with just a plain band (I actually said I don't want a ring), I would never "upgrade" it because the sentiment is lost.

crila16 said...

That's too big and too tacky...diamond or not. Tacky.

These stars are ridiculous. It's all about competition, it's not about love. If I met a man who loved me and wanted to marry me, I couldn't care less how big a stupid material diamond was. My prize would be my man.

AuntJess said...

Well if I had her gazzilions I'd buy my ass a big old ring too.

I don't usually say anything cause I'm grateful for this site but what is w/ the mean-ness of the posts the last couple days? Sheesh!

Frufra I guess it depends. After my SIL n BIL came into some hard earned $$ she upgraded. My BIL was so proud he could give her something bigger w/ a bit of style-he said he she is worth as much as the hope diamond it self lol and if he could he would have bought that.

Roman Holiday said...

Ok again with the hate today! Really, I didn't know you had it in you, I thought you were neutral?
Anyways, I hope she gets a huge rock and flashes it as much as possible! I just can't hate on her, I don't know why but I like her!

strawberrygirl said...

Seriously Enty, what did Aniston do to you? Have you eaten today?

Frufra said...

Yup, Amber. IMO, your relationship is in deep doo doo if you immediately deem your guy's token of love "not good enough" and have to trade it in. One should not be getting engaged to acquire jewelry! That little ring is just a teeny tiny token of the gigantic commitment that's being made.

Hubs and I have matching plain gold wedding bands (they were his parents' rings, that they stopped wearing when they were going to divorce. Dubious honor, huh? We like to say we're changing the rings' luck :-). We never take them off, and I would trade all my diamonds and baubles in a heartbeat for our plain gold bands.

P.S. - Amber, sounds like you and your man are on the right track :-).

libby said...

I really only 'believe' in buying diamonds if they're old, like Victorian or Edwardian. I like those styles of settings, and I like that the stones are not huge and gaudy. They're also interesting, in that you don't know who or how many women have worn the ring--it's fun to imagine their lives or stories.
Plus, buying antique means you're not giving money to De Beers; they got theirs back when the ring was new.

IS there such a thing as a blood-free & De Beers-free diamond these days? Anyone know for sure?
B. Profane would know, but s/he's not here this early, dammit!

carisel said...

Umm, hello, Angie? Is that you? Seriously what's with all the JA hate? I'm not the biggest fan but I'm feeling like I have ti defend the woman from this continued enty ridiculousness . . .

Frufra said...

@AuntJess - I get that, too. I have a ten year anniversary band (ten diamonds) that I wear with my plain band and my engagement ring. Sweet hubby totally surprised me with it, and he was proud to be able to buy it for me. I just could never part with that original ring that started this whole crazy thing we've got going on!

Unknown said...

he did write the screen play for iron man 2, tropic thrunder , rock ages, zoolander 2.

fox network also brought one of his script last year.

deadline also confirmed recently to be re writing and directing a Warner Bros movie starring Will Ferrell and Steve Carell ....

the dude is not poor by any means, he also comes from money on both his father and mother side.

he isnt mega rich like aniston but am sure he has his own money

Frufra said...

Oh, libs, I love antique diamonds. They are the best for sure. I have no idea how to know you're buying a blood-free diamond. I guess an old one is a good start? DeBeers is pretty evil, I believe. But feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

You're right. We need B.

Redheat said...

Seriously Enty, who pissed in your coffee?

Amber said...

Frufra - we are, thanks :) He commands me to marry him on a daily basis, and I always tell him when he asks I'll say yes. He's been saving, and my friends have their money on a proposal in Paris at the end of Sept, but I don't really think so. I'm in no rush! We're happy - the rest is politics.

Amber said...

And I agree that it's super sweet when your hubs has saved and is able to get you something schnazzier later on, but the original ring, IMO, is where the sentiment lies. I'd never want to let that go.

MayB said...

I would never trade in my engagement ring, but if hubby ever wants to give me a sparkly anniversary band to go with it, I would be thrilled.

Cassiopeia said...

Idc who bought it...8 fucking carats?
That is a monstrosity. Especially in this age, it's disgusting.

Dirty Disher said...

I like Jen myself. Like I know her, right? But, she seems nice and never hurts anyone. She doesn't act stupid or say ditzy things. I hope she's happy, but, I don't like the looks of her BF. He give me bad vibs. Men that age who wear those tight skinny jeans all turn out to be finiky pests.

Frufra said...

Amber, my sis and her hubby will also be in Paris at the end of September! And talk about a sweet love story - stand next to the tall Agentine and the smiling brunette so you can enjoy their good karma :-).

AuntJess said...

Frufra, Amber-Hmmm I'm not much of a fan of pieces that I don't know the history of. And I would never buy anything at auction. Too big a chance of bad juju or negativity if you will. I wear some things from my great gram that just passed at 96 but I know she had a peaceful, kind soul.
I would never in 10,000 years wear that sapphire ring that William gave the Duchess on their engagement. You are looking for trouble with that thing! Hope I'm not being too weird here ;)

gossipmonger1 said...

I'm pretty sure he comes from a well to do family, aside from his own successes. And I agree, I started reading this site years ago for the tone of articles and the blinds but I am getting a bit tired of the over the top negativity and really sad blinds (molestation, abuse, these things shouldn't be gossip!!). I honestly now skim the articles and read the comments bc thankfully my long time faves still represent the site I used to know but still want to love.

Frufra said...

@AuntJess - not too weird to me. I don't actually own any jewelry that isn't new or a family heirloom (nothing spectacular, but my paternal grandmother loved jewelry).

Slightly OT, but related - the last house we owned was an estate - both the husband and the wife died there, separated by a few years. It never bothered me at all, but I was keen to respect their presence in the house, and to always speak and think kindly about them. We even kept a large needlework piece that the owner had made out of respect of them. So I totally get where you're coming from.

Amber said...

AuntJess - The Duchess' ring is heinous. Maybe it's fine in person, but the one I see in the infomercial is wretch-inducing. Hah. And I completely get the concern about "bad juju", as I can be a bit superstitious!

Agent**It said...

This is how it goes at the tabloids:

Tuesday, August 14, 2012 at 2:00 PM ET on the internet at : www.lifeandstylemag.com

Source of the rings story:
"a friend of Jen's tells Life & Style"
"The source estimates" (regarding the size)
"the friend reveals overwhelmed and overjoyed by the size and beauty of it"
"For all the details on Jen's engagement, pick up this week's issue of Life & Style, on newsstands tomorrow!" (Today on sale at supermarkets)
The publishing group:
"We deliver more shoppers – more efficiently – than any other magazine publisher".
These are the folks that are at the top of the profit chain:
Bauer Publishing http://www.bauerpublishing.com (read the site for the demographics)

They do not have to advertise their magazines because they weave a story like this and then bloggers and others pick up the story and publicize it for them.

libby said...

AuntJess---I totally understand what you're saying, but I push that stuff outta my head. I can be superstitious, but I've collected vintage clothes my whole life, so I'm over all that as far as antiques go.

I've coveted Diana's/Kate's ring since I was 9, and would wear it gleefully. That's just me though.

discoflux said...

Are the posts being written by Mary Poppins today?

"I do hope he gets better."

"I fear that was a long sentence."

Plus the punctuation is a little too good.

Have you been listening to the Grammar Girl podcasts, Enty?

When it comes to rings... I've already designed mine. I killed about 6 hours on gemvara one night.

MAC said...

I have friends that have upgraded their rings and I'm with Frufra. I have always said that I wouldn't change my ring even if I won the lottery. It is the ring we made our vows on and it is the sentiment of it and not the size. Plus it is a reminder of simpler times when a $2500 on a payment plan was a lot of money. I always warn my teenage nephew about girls that are greedy about their engagement rings, lol.

MISCH said...

Can't wait to see it...

rhinovodka said...

Let Jen have her happiness. At least Justin has a job & is not her paid piece.

Agent**It said...

Entwood is clearly on vacation. Did you read the GMA post? This sounds like a bitter 'scribbler' .

Saffron said...

And the rock will probably be a blood diamond aka conflict diamond, meaning some peasant child in the Congo was abused/maimed to mine ignorant Jen's 8 carat rock. Sometimes I wonder if karma is for real.

trudi said...

I can't wait to see the pictures of Jenn's ring. It's lovely to see a beautiful diamond ring on the hand of a healthy woman as opposed to the bony, vein laden hand of an anorexic with a taste for non nutritional substances.

Jana said...

Leave Enty alone. An 8-carat diamond of good color and clarity is a boatload of money. If he can afford it fine, but my experience is the older and more successful the bride to be the more she wants a bigger ring. On the subject of the Duchess' ring, that has to have some bad mojo attached to it but that can be changed over time. The sapphire wasn't new when Charles purchased it but I don't know if he changed the setting. William obviously gave it as something that had belonged to a mother he loved.

CantHaveMyPurse said...

I'm sure Justin could afford an 8ct diamond ring. Not all 8 ct rings cost six million dollars. My engagement ring is an 3ct antique and it was nowhere near as expensive as you might think (granted its not a D color, flawless stone, but I cannot afford that anyway).

I am team Ange, but even *I* want you to stop making shit up about Jen and Justin. Let them play in the spotlight as much as they want. We all know this is PR driven - so is what Ange/Brad do. All these folks are there to sell their brand, sell magazines, sell movies. They ALL play us in the press.

SusanB said...

My dad couldn't afford an engagement ring when he married mom. She just had a plain gold band. When we kids were grown and gone, he bought her a big ass 4 carat diamond ring which she wore proudly til she died.

As for an 8 carat ring, there are good diamonds and less expensive diamonds due to the quality. A poor quality 8 carat definitely wouldn't cost as much.

I always thought Princess Diana's ring was ugly.

redronnie said...

I don't have an engagement ring, just a plain simple gold band. I told my husband diamonds did not suit me..so he bought me a car.

Brenda L said...

Elizabeth Taylor would be laughing her ass off at you softies that don't want to upgrade. ;-)

timebob said...

agree with everyone else Jen A is one of the most famous women on the planet. If she is wearing a ring every jewler will offer a huge discount to design it so they can make it back by designing similar rings. And all the free publicity that goes along with it.

I don't hate for her getting engaged to a guy who's last g/f he never married after 14 years. For all we know Heidi never wanted to get married (it happens)

And if they get married with a solid pre nup then the rags will get off their back with the marriage speculation. Everybody wins.

VargasGirl said...

Bingo!

Brian Brown said...

When someone "trades up" an engagement ring, what do they do with the old ring?

Given Enty's swipes at Anniston, I wonder if she is the answer to some of the "nasty" blinds???

yawnathon said...

For blood conflict-free diamonds, a quick google search will direct you to jewelers who use them.

I bought my own engagement & wedding bands. I proposed, it allowed me to find a gorgeous antique ring with European cut diamonds. I got to choose the ring I will wear until I die. We designed the bands together. And I paid for it all using gold I'd found & hoarded from thrifting. No joke. The $ eventually comes from the same pot, right? So why should it matter which person pays for what? I find it archaic.

Unknown said...

he does have money enty he kind of wrote the screenplays for some movies called iron man 2, tropic thunder and yes even rock of ages!!

Unknown said...

this!

Lauren said...

Guessing by these posts Entys not a huge Jen Aniston fan. Who cares if she did by the ring as long as theyre happy. And according to People, his rep broke the news of the engagement so I think he may of known a little about it.

Mitten Fluffy said...

I have friends who are friends with Justin and I have met him more than once. He's got plenty of his own money and is a hugely successful screenwriter. He also has family money though he doesnt rely on it and works hard to make his own money. So what if Jen has more than him? I make more than my husband and it's no big deal. Only backwards people think the man should have more. Are we living in the dark ages?

Also, when my husband proposed he didn't have a ring because it was spontaneous. He got one months later that was sweet but not my style at all and it protruded too much so I would have been fiddling with it uncomfortably for the rest of my life. Because we have an amazing, honest relationship I was able to tell him this and he was fine with taking it back. he understands it is something I will be wearing for the rest of my life.

We picked one out together later. The fact that he picked one that wasn't right doesn't mean he doesn't know me. The fact that I can be honest with him means that he loves me.

Ladies, if you can't be honest with your man about something as silly as a ring then don't marry him! It's not the ring that is romantic but the love between you!

Lauren said...

Buy*

penelope said...

My late husband purchased my engagement/wedding ring for about $1200.00 and to him, that was a LOT of money. Therefore, the ring meant a lot to me when he gave it to me and still does even though he passed away four years ago.

If JT or JA can afford an 8 carat ring, more power to them. However, I know people who sometimes can't afford to buy food for their children so spending that kind of $$ on a ring, no matter how rich you are, seems wasteful. I knew how much my husband loved me (and I him) -- we did not have to exchange expensive ring to prove it.

Sherry said...

My ex boss constantly went overboard buying these enormous rings for his fiance du jour. It was senseless and wasteful. I'm of the same thought as others. My engagement ring is less than a carat and I am more than happy with it. I never wanted something big and in fact we inquired about synthetic diamonds instead. OP gave from his heart and I will forever treasure that ring. I do however, get a second band on the tenth anniversary but that one was less than $300.
And antique rings are simply lovely. None of that giant crap sitting up so high it snags on everything as you walk by. Why do girls feel like a big rock says how much a man loves them. Flowers picked from the wild always mean more to me.

Anonymous said...

Who cares if she bought the ring herself? If they're happy, that's all that matters, IMO. Besides, he's a screenwriter/actor and doesn't seem to live a lavish lifestyle, so he probably had the dough (and a good deal from a jeweler).

As for the trading up your original ring, my mother took the stone from her original engagement ring and had it set as a pendant that she wore every day around her neck, when my father gave her a larger diamond ring later in life.

Lady Luvgood said...

Diana's ring was new, she chose it herself, from a tray of rings Garrad's sent over for her to pick from. She often said that she picked the biggest one. It was quite the scandal when the ring was advertised in the jewelers catalogue, and was not a one off.
IMO, I think William desperately loved and will always miss his Mum, he knew Diana loved her ring and still wore it after the divorce. Giving Kate, Diana's ring was a bold statement to the Windsors, that the boy who will be King, will never forget his Mum and will always cherish her memory. Kate should feel honored.

Hammer_Girl said...

@disco- OT but I just got through watching The Wild and Wonderful Whites. Holy crap!!!

lzahart said...

Justin isn't exactly poor. He wrote and produced Tropic Thunder. He may not be at the baller status of JA but I think he can afford this, honestly, so I think it's kind of a leap to assume she paid for it herself- he's not K-Fed or JLopez's new piece. It does seem clear ENTY doesn't care for JA though...

Sherry said...

And Amen Mitten Fluffy. You are spot on. The honestly and trust are far more inportant than a piece of jewelry.

Baka Neko said...

@frufra it depends on how long they have been together. I was always taught that the 10 year reunion you celebrate it by buying a new ring, which is why the first ring isn't sosuped to be too expensive.

WUWT? said...

When my husband was looking for a ring he could afford, the jeweler first offered him a trade-in ring and a cracked diamond. A cracked diamond! How does that happen? (You can put the prong where the missing piece is and no one will notice!) I'm all for not spending a fortune on something, never more than you can afford, and the sentiment is what matters, obviously, but I didn't want either of those options. Does that make me bad? Anyway, I picked a well-cut half carat diamond (with no cracks), and a plain white-gold band, and then walked away so he could still "surprise" me with it. I don't know. It seems like a bad/nonromantic story about how we/he picked the ring, but at the time, it was just an open conversation about what we/he could afford and what we/I would like. We both have been happy with the decision, though!

discoflux said...

Hahahahahaha! It's baffling, isn't it, bobbi?

yodelay said...

I agree with discoflux & Agent*it, this is not the usual writer, and it sucks.

If I wanted to read bullshit stories about JenA, I'd read celebitchy. Everyone even slightly familiar with gossip knows JT is a successful screenwriter, so duh, he can afford whichever ring she ends up with. As others have pointed out, he probably didn't even have to pay for it.

I want the fun Enty back!

yawnathon said...

@WUWT - I think it's pretty sexy to have that openness about things like rings, spending $ on weddings, etc. There is so much propagand towards women from companies like De Beers which make millions by conjuring up & promoting made up milestones. The anniversary bands, the past-present-future rings...I worked for a jeweler and my mom's a gemologist. A diamond ring is like buying a new car, prices are so inflated at most stores that your ring is never worth what you paid for it, unless you insure it and use the insurance. Have that jewelry appraised for insurance. By the way - a diamond is considered weightless when selling gold. It's only as valuable as finding a specific buyer for that particular diamond.

rareavis said...

Thanks for all the lovely comments yesturday.
When I post observations, they are firsthand and true through my own experiences. Really.
I like to think they are interesting to you guys.
As far as leaving her a rich woman, do not doubt for a second, her money and influence aren't stemmed from her relationship with him.
Um, in reading these posts from Enty, I don't think that he's hating on Jen Aniston. He seems to be pointing out the obvious.
Her engagement is timed to take attention away from her past relationships which is what I tried to narrate yesturday.
She has allowed her celebrity to float upon her divorce. Her fiance was in a fourteen year realtionship, who apparently, he dumped to be with Jen. Uh kettle, black calling. And now this, it's like she's a Kardashian now.
I know, I know, you want her to be happy. But may I suggest, this engagement has very little to do with love.

Janet296 said...

I don't get all the Jen hate either. They split up what...7 or 8 years ago? Do people think that almost a decade later that her every move revolves around Brad and Angie? Really? At what point can Jen ever do anything without it being linked to Brad and Angie?

smash said...

That last sentence gave me chills. So beautiful. It really isn't the size that matters, its the fact a man pick something special for you to show your love. So sweet when done for the right reasons.

dia papaya said...

@yawnathon - Can you give us a ballpark range for the cost of an 8 carat ring?

Jasmine said...

I think the man buying the woman a ring that is (in the traditional sense) supposed to be a symbol of their love and eternal happiness or whatever and presenting it to her to wear forever WITHOUT HER INVOLVEMENT in the ring choice seems archaic and terribly old-fashioned.

Very much along the same lines of the bride's father GIVING her away to her husband-to-be.

So I guess my response to Jenn helping buy her ginormous ring is so what? I think BOTH people should pick out their rings together and chip in the money together. This is a partnership, not some archaic Man/Wife Adam/Eve shit where the wife wears virginal white and is given away like chattel from one man to another.

If Jen Aniston wants a big ring, let her buy that ring. The end.

Jemtastic said...

Wow...if JA has such fans on the interwebs, how does she continue to have flop after illustrious flop?

smash said...

Your so awesome!!! I want to be your friend. That is so sweet of you to do for the souls of that house. :)

Afallingstar1986 said...

I am the same way... It doesn't matter what the ring looks like, it's the love that is given with it. I have a friend who always brags about how she upgraded her ring when her hubby started making money. She now wants a bigger one and it bugs me every time she mentions it.

Now! said...

I consider myself officially neutral on the Jennifer Aniston question, but I didn't find this post particularly hateful.

If Jen didn't have tabloid interest in her love life she'd be, um, Lisa Kudrow. A middle-aged TV actress of medium talent but with a steady income stream, piecing together a post-Friends career.

While I think "Web Therapy" is an OK show, I don't see Lisa Kudrow on many magazine covers, or getting megabucks for endorsing Vitamin Water.

If Jen lives happily-ever-after with this or some other guy, she'll be giving up her main source of public interest.

Roman Holiday said...

- I love how everyone speculates as to her comings and goings and her love life - nobody knows, it's all guessing! Just because rareavis says she knew this person or that person doesn't make it so. It's the internet people! Not everything written is true!!!

Oh and P.S. I could be JA and not one of you would know it........

Hammer_Girl said...

You know what's really bad? This reminded me ALOT of my moms side of the family and some of their friends just without the infamy. I will never forget sitting at a house and smoking weed with a woman that was very good friends with my mom and aunt. I practically grew up around her. She talked the whole time about when I was little and how she always wanted me to grow up and marry her son(whose name is Billy Joe). While he is also there with his wife and another girl comes walking out of a room that is also one of his baby mommas. I was floored at the situation. When I went over to the house with friends I was told we were going to see the pill lady they bought from.
I would love to know what happened to all of them. It is just the one documentary right? There are no follow-ups?

bumbumgirl said...

I find it very coincidental that the announcement of her engagement came on the same weekend Brangelina were rumored to be getting married.

That being said, I do believe that everyone deserves to be happy - JA included. Hope Justin is her penguin. :)


Hammer_Girl said...

Oh and my blonde moment of the day, I was texting my husband telling him OMG these people are doing this, this, and this. Well, I was actually texting the mom of one of my daughters friend whom thank god I'm friends with, and she texted me back "Where the hell are you at, I'm coming to get you now!"

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

Maybe the other girlfriend didn't want to get married.

Sis said...

I also love antique diamonds and the "blood diamonds" just piss me off!

Wow, even Angie hate on this thread but no one talks about the cheaters Justin with Jennifer on his girlfriend...it's ok because she had the "girl next door" rep???

If she bought her own ring, who cares, at least it is what she wants, and as I recall Jessica Simpson caught alot of flack on this site for paying for her own ring too, wth.

yawnathon said...

@ dia - it depends on so many factors. The cut, clarity, color. It's very rare to find a colorless "D" in larger carats. Same w/ clarity. When you go that big, you have to sacrifice color and clarity. That's why a lot of celebrities pick pink or yellow diamonds - they hide inclusions better and they can go pretty big, whether irradiated or natural. If you attach a name brand to it, it's like the hidden 5th "C". You're paying extra for Neil Lane, Gabriel, Le Vian, etc. I'd imagine she would choose a high quality stone, so we'd be talking at least one million wholesale. Diamonds are usually marked up 500-800%.

yawnathon said...

I should clarify that large diamonds like that are rare, so the markup would be lower. It's a weird, complicated formula the industry uses to price stones. The bigger the stone, the lower the markup.

auntliddy said...

Damn right i wld wear it !!!!!! Lol

auntliddy said...

So even if jen rescues 6 kittens from drowning, you still hate her? Wth? Let it go man!

whocaresnow12 said...

The stories made up about Jen are just hilarious.

Elizabeth said...

So I've finally made it to the earlier posts and once again, a "Hate Jen" post for the third day in a row. And CDaN does feel different since the Himmmm posts so maybe Enty sold the site. It's too bad things are changing here.

Elizabeth said...

rareavis, with all due respect, you could be the same pseudo-poster that became the new Enty. Your piling on proclaiming you have internal knowledge of the level of love between Jen and Justin is...total crap. You could be one of AJ's 25 nannies looking for a raise - which would explain your "giggly" description of her (barf). This site is turning into Jared.

Roman Holiday said...

@ auntliddy - I think she did but they couldn't report it here because that would make her cool!!! and Yes yes yes to what Elizabeth said!

Agent**It said...

This enty is femalish.

Kady Kat said...

guessing that they buy gigantic rocks for the engagement ring because most hollywood marriages won't last to the "upgrade" year...

just a thought.

engagement rings were only something concocted by the deBeers family back in the beginning of the last century as a push to get people to buy their rings. They are not a custom nor a true tradition.

Where's all the activism now??/

Enty: They guy wrote the screenplay for Iron Man 2...He ain't broke! I'm sure he can afford a nice ring!

Jasmine said...

Enty is a real man, he exists, he writes for this site and has continued to do so throughout the years the site has been operating.

There isnt a conspiracy.

He DOES live in LA.

He isnt fat (but he isnt skinny either), nor does he live in his parent's basement. I dont know about the whole bacon thing being a real vice of his, though it could very well be.

You people who spend all this time pointing out the little details here and there of his every change in grammatical syntax, in his mood shifts, in his feminine/masculine writing are really reaching.

As someone once pointed out- how many of YOU can say your writing/mood/point of view doesnt change as you get older and the years go by? He is a normal human being, this shit aint gonna be cookie cutter day in and out.

I am so bloody sick of that shit. I have nothing to gain from telling you: dude IS REAL. sheesh

Agent**It said...

Nobody has a conspiracy theory, J. When shitty writing smells, it stinks and Enty does use others to write for him/her on occasion and they are quite simply,not good. Love the phrase cookie cutter!

El Roy 13 said...

@Jasmine...wow! I had to go and see what sparked that post. Although I must say reading it made me feel like you were enty (not that I give two sh*ts), and I'm sure, as they say at the DM, red arrow me away for saying it.

HOWEVER.....I love your quote, "if you've never gone crazy, how boring your life must be." I'm gonna jack it one day.

I have a similar one posted in my kitchen cabinet, it reads, "If you've never made mistakes, you must not know very much."

//that's all I needed to say.
well that, and who cares who the writer of this blog is. It's one of the best sites with a wonderful community on the web. So who give s sh*t, really.

El Roy 13 said...

**sorry, I was backspacing to delete, when I said F it and hit publish.


I meant to say, "who gives a sh*t." I never expected "enty" to really be a lawyer anyway. My lawyers, who I PAY barely have time to talk to me, let alone blog.

Jasmine said...

Omama- he is a lawyer. I just dont know what type.

But I like that I've been thrown in the ring to being a possible Enty now.
I know Jax and maybe even Rocket Queen have gotten that honor, as well as Moosh, but I didnt think I was in their league to warrant said remark- awesome!

I just happen to know a few things about whats up and because I know he IS a real life person it's just tiring to hear every little time he steps out of whatever line people have drawn for him that he's a fraud. From what I know he was actually pretty excited about that whole newspaper article coming out about him- and it prolly sucked to have that bitch writer twist her facts and it blow up in his face.

I dont know if he has other writers undercover. I know when he cant do it he will say the name of whomever it is taking over, like Jax for instance. So why would he give credit to people and not to others?

But yeah, it's cool. Probably shouldnt have said anything. This is the first time I've spoken up regarding Enty's identity being legit and I just wanted to do my bit to say yeah, he is real and he does write this blog.

And thanks for liking my phrases, guys :)

El Roy 13 said...

I do actually feel that Enty sounds more feminine than masculine.

And I don't believe Enty is a lawyer. Maybe a paralegal in a lawyer's office (if anything). But there's no way a lawyer would have time to write this blog.

//Just saying. And no need to go on a rant and defend, b/c really no one gives a sh*t. Just keep the posts coming.

vega said...

Diamonds are overhyped and overpriced anyway.

As for Aniston, absolutely canNOT stand her but I have to admit that she's kept herself in fine trim. Except for whatever she's been doing to her face recently. I think she should have aged naturally, she probably would have looked great for quite a while yet.

Agent**It said...

Omama, did you get your lottery ticket? I'm ready !

feraltart said...

Hi everyone,
My husband and I picked out my engagement ring together and our wedding bands. I never wanted something big and I certainly didn't want us going into debt. We paid the ring off and I love it and will do so for life.
I don't think there is any problem with Jennifer buying her ring. Why should Justin have to spend more money than he is comfortable with if she is happy to pay for what she wants.
I am not a big diamond fan myself - I have rubies. I actually adore Swarovski crystal jewellery. Can't get enough and my collection is becoming ridiculous.

jax said...

dude did you rip off my tweet? lol.
i pretty much said that whole thing...but then again I AM YOU..

Henriette said...

My husband and I picked out my engagement and wedding rings together. He didn't want to "get it wrong." I saved him a lot of money. I had his rings made when I was 23 living in Asia.

I don't know if it matters who buys the ring. I don't know why anyone would need an eight carat ring either.

AuntJess said...

Frufra, Amber et al Sharing time? I don't care for antique jewelry because I'm what some would call "psychically sensitive". Didn't really even understand what was going on till someone explained it. Basically I pick up vibes real well. Jewelry, personal items, sometimes furniture, not really clothing except a sweater from the local consignment shoppe that will not let me get rid of it. Homes, oh yeah. People are hard, I feel physically drained after going to Walmart. Like I spent a week at Disney. But my friends like how I always seem to read their moods ;) Only works inperson tho.

Amber said...

AuntJess, I'm not the same way but I totally understand. I especially understand about being drained from Walmart. Hah. Malls absolutely suck the life out of me.

Frufra said...

@AuntJess - that is SO COOL. I'm sure it's very taxing, too, in ways I can't understand, but wow - what a gift. You know dia papaya, right, who comments here? She's clairvoyant. Of course,I can't tell her story, but she's got one, I'm sure!

discoflux said...

Holy. Shitballs. I just came back to this thread, looked back and saw that it was my poorly executed fun poking at enty that started the shitstorm. Fuck, y'all. (Please note the position of the comma before thinking I just told you all to go fuck yourselves because, I didn't.) I was just being silly about two phrases. I don't think I've ever jumped on the enty isn't real train because even though I've only been commenting since sometime last year, I've read this site since 2008 or 2009. Truth is, who cares? He gets guest writers. So what? Chill and enjoy the ride.

AuntJess said...

Frufra I'm in no way as blessed as Ms dia (holla!). Its kind of like intuition 2x--just in the back of your mind so to speak. Definitely not like Medium or anything ;)

El Roy 13 said...

@Agent **it - sadly, I did. I wasted five bucks.

Best of Luck to you though :)


//on the off chance that I'm not God's joke of the day anymore....and I do win, first thing I'm gonna drop $$$ on will be year round behavioral modification boarding schools for my two teenagers. Not only outside of the states, but even off this continent.

///and I'm not kidding

El Roy 13 said...

*sorry, six bucks. I wasted six almighty dolla's (ducket's, whatever you want to call them....two iced chai tea's from sheetz)

Amber said...

Lol OMAMA. Just remember it DOES get better. They'll know how wise you are again when they're living on their own. :)

Anonymous said...

Whatever. I'm so sick of hearing that he cheated on his poor long term live in girlfriend just b/c he left her for another woman. He was in a relationship, fell in love with someone else, broke up with the girlfriend and started dating the person he actually loves. Should he have stayed in a loveless unhappy situation out of obligation b/c his ex still loved him? Fuck off!

El Roy 13 said...

God I hope so, Amber.

Thanks though :)

Agent**It said...

Omama, good luck as well!

Bleu said...

I don't believe Enty's a lawyer for the simple fact that he without fail will use "plead guilty" as past tense, as in "so and so plead guilty to the crime." He has two choices: pleaded guilty or pled guilty. But for some reason the lawyer goes with plead as though that's the past tense.

smash said...

I just enjoy reading and love the commentors. I don't think he is fake. Nor would I even bring it up. Get over it people.

Amber said...

When I was in HS - due mostly in part to bad family situations - I HATED my mom. Now? I'm her right hand man. She is sole owner of my grandpa's company, and I'm VP/HR. I absolutely LOVE working with her, and we even go on trips together!

El Roy 13 said...

Thanks.

My daughter has hooked up with a tenth grade drop out (he dropped out of school b/c he was, "depressed") and I finally have her back tonight, but she has been constantly running away to his house, lying about being with him, etc. since Jan. And to make matter's worse, b/c this past Monday I finally had it and called the cops (as his parents too wouldn't make her leave, and this was past midnight), I called the cops as it's against the law for her to move out and for them to harbor her, being as she is 16. So today, before I finally got her, (another mother's boyfriend actually forced the mother to get her to leave her house) she and her bf went to the police telling them I beat her (which I don't) and they've called children and youth saying this. #1 mind you, the one mother from whose I house I finally picked her up at, reeked of booze as she told me that her daughter said that she believes the boyfriend (that he's seen bruises and cuts and she always believes her daughter....AH, thanks. ANd her daughter is the one who introduced mine to this clown, and this mom has allowed her daughter for the past two years to sleep at boys houses...so I have a hankering we parent differently) #2 I'm not worried b/c none of it is true but what I am worried about is, I am in school, with a SLEW of loans, working so I can become a clinical psychologist. NOW, everyone knows that even if a CPS call is unfounded and was made out of malice it doesn't matter. It will still be on my record that the call was made. So, how many clinical psychologist jobs do you know of THAT DON'T DO FBI BACKGROUND CHECKS!!!!

//and I'm also pissed b/c I have said this kid is WT (which he is) and from my life travels, the only people that I have ever witnessed who use CPS as a weapon, are white trash.

///just when I thought things couldn't get any worse.....and really, my kid hates me this much??? It's beyond asking Jesus to take the wheel at this point. Like I said, if I didn't have my animals......non lo so. I just thank God that I do.


welcome to my nightmare

dia papaya said...

Aunt Jess. We should totally talk sometime about this. Me too. That's why I'm so good at my job bc I know what people need as soon as they well in the door. I see/feel spirits in places and I too get drained if I'm out in public too long. Metal objects are the easiest to pick up vibes. I just "clean" everything really well. I can also do long distance stuff now too. Like the other day for Libby and Seaward's friend. It was really creepy. Now that I've learned how to use it, it's a lot better. I'm convinced that's why I'm suck all the time. I carry around everyone else's crap :(

dia papaya said...

Walk in the door. It's late!

dia papaya said...

I'm not like Medium yet either, but it's a skill that needs to be trained just like playing an instrument. I want to shout out to James Van Praagh. He was the first psychic / medium I found who was honest and genuine. I LOVE his books. He travels a lot and is in LA. I heart you James! I didn't have a family member to teach me so I read his books. Now I have a great teacher in Portland. She's amazing too.

dia papaya said...

Omama! What a nightmare! I will pray for you too and light a candle. Sometimes we have to let our babies make their mistakes. I know it's hard to let go, but you may have to do that. I'm so proud of you for going back to school. That's a huge deal when you're older (meaning not 23yo).

And just like Amber said, I am now closer to my mom than ever before. We were at each others throats. It's still hard sometimes but I love her. My peace didn't come til I turned 30 though. She's still a clinically depressed person and a hoarder but I know she does and did the best age could. Maturity and distance help. I just hope you can get thru this difficult time now.

Bit dams said...

i don't really care what enty does for a living. but one time it occured to me that he might own a body guard business for hollywood folk. people get ery comfortable with their household staff, even forget they are there. and one time, i think it was a BI about christina a, enty said the star's staff was leaving a baby moniter on next to her bed because they were worried about her dying. and the body guards were hearing all the sex she was having.

anyhoo...@obama, can you send your daughter off to a tough-love boarding school? a friend of a friend just sent her daughter off because of something similar. i woudn't worry about the CPS thing. hang in there.

El Roy 13 said...

thanks everyone (Me/ dia).

I'm really sorry I vented my omama drama here, but, you've all become a safe playground of sorts for me. And I just want to say I appreciate it, sincerely.

Love & Blessings

and Dia....I could really use that candle. My mom always would light candles (we fought too in my teens, hard, but had two great years before she passed on) I would really appreciate it.

El Roy 13 said...

@me...if I report back tomorrow of my daughter heading away to school....you will know, I finally won @something (pwrbl) ;)

dia papaya said...

Consider it done. Maybe she's the one that told me to do it for you! When I'm tired things don't come thru clearly.

Has she passed? I just heard the song Amazing Grace in and saw an image of a lady in an a rocking chair with a little tiny baby. Love to you :) ask the Angels and Jesus for help. They can't help unless you ask. Free will and all that.

dia papaya said...

Just reread what you wrote. There are a lot of strong women over there helping you! Your mom just keeps rocking and singing softy. It's a song I don't know. She says you'll know what to do. She's always with you. She's sorry you fought so much but it's ok now. I love ya baby.

That's it! Shell help you figure it out. Big hug.

El Roy 13 said...

DIA!

I have a picture of my mom right before she passed, where she to me looks the most gorgeous ever, (her hair had grown back in after chemo, and it was all natural, not styled and dyed) and she was holding my son, who must of been only a month old (she passed when he was he was four months and eight days old, but the pic was taken in my house, which at the time was in Vermont, and she made her last trip up there sometime before thanksgiving. He was born in Oct and she passed in feb.....if I can post pic's here in this space, I will as soon as I get home).

I don't know what she's singing, as she sang a lot, but she would always sing to me the chorus from the Bob Marley song No Woman No Cry, singing, "everything's gonna be alright, everything's gonna be alright...." funny story, she even got banned from writing to me in boarding school (for six months) for writing those lyrics as they were deemed, "unacceptable." God I miss her, and would Love to talk to you more about this.

To say I am choked up would be putting things lightly. Thank You Dia....so much.

dia papaya said...

You are so welcome! Have a great day! I hope that winning ticket is yours!!!

PS - you know your mom is always there for you in spirit. If something reminds of her, say a smell or a song or a photograph, it's probably her stopping in to say hi. I think the biggest misconception about linking with the deceased is that it has to be some big dramatic episode. That's not true. The other side is very subtle. You just have to pay attention. And if it comes in twos (at least for me) I know it's them! Love ya!!!

El Roy 13 said...

no go. I'm FAR from MI (My wealth remains in a spiritual place ;))

But you know what...after my mom passed on, on would Constantly think I would see her, always from behind. A few months ago I broke down and paid for a medium reading with Bill Philips (pre his rate increase) and he was like, that was her.

I mean I know she's with me, and before you wrote that, I had driven to the one person that I know (and ex bf's) house, b/c I needed to just verbally vent to another adult who knew me...so I could say how I felt, without causing alarm. It's a half hour drive through the country, and the whole way there, I was talking to my mom, and to my best friend who recently passed over to the other side (12/05/11) and I was crying, so when you said that (and I forgot to say the pic of my mom, she's in my "nursing chair" which was a rocking chair), it took my breathe away. ESpecially as Bill Philips was like, your mom REally does not like his ex bf as she doesn't like the way he speaks to you (which was true....) so I was telling them (my mom and Dion my best friend) that I know they didn't like him for me, but I really needed to be able to speak to another adult at that moment, b/c I felt like I was breaking. You know? ANd Lord knows I couldn't say what I needed to say here, or on my blog....it would get taken the wrong way. NOt to mention, I talk to God constantly, and yes that's great, but I needed to say what I needed to get out to another human.

So, what you said, all of it, was a TRIP indeed.

I'm gonna post that pic on my blog if you want to see it. But give me some time. Omama needs a bagel (livin' on the edge and stress eating, and another ice coffee, so I've got to go out for a bit).

Thanks so much (I relayed what you said to my son, and the first thing he said was, "that pic!" -mind you I am not one to have a lot of framed pics around, just a handful, and that is one). So ty :)

And Godbless

dia papaya said...

What is your blog info? Would love to see the pic at some point.

El Roy 13 said...

omamaisbroko.blogspot.com

I've posted the pic. :)

smash said...

Thank you for sharing your story. No woman no cry was always my very favorite Bob Marley song.

All about Eve said...

I have simple gold bands too that were a gift from my father in law, he had them inscribed with our names and wedding date. I wouldn't trade them for the biggest diamond in the world!

El Roy 13 said...

@smashbox...the best though, even though I ha listened to Marley my whole entire life, a year or so before my mom passed on, we were driving (we spent like every day of her last two years together....it's funny how once facing death, ppl let go of their resentment, grudges, etc) but anyway, we were listening to the old Bob Marley box set, remember Freedom Songs, and, The Stone That The Builder Refuse (I think that's the name) comes on, and she looks at me and she says, "dear, he's singing things from the bible!" I was like, no sh*t ma.

One of my best memories of my mom. And in hindsight, had a I never ran off and married that homeless junkie I met on Haight st....I wouldn't had ever gone back home, to the east coast, and I would have never had that time with my mom before she died. Because in total truth, I now, when I think of her, I only think of that time, and more recently, times from when I was little. But I don't ever think of the bad times, even though time wise, they were plenty. It's like they've been erased from my mind.

//I share too much

AKM said...

Wow, just checked in to find this. Omama, I hope you're having a better day today. Dia, you truly have a gift and you're using it in such a lovely way. I strongly believe that those on the other side are there for us and make contact when and if they can. My grandmother comes to me, albeit rarely, in dreams, and I KNOW it's an otherwordly thing because it's very much her, but it's NOT her...does that make any sense? She was the kind of person who never shut IRL, and in the dreams she just sits with a beatific smile on her face, never speaking, seeming totally at peace and at one with everything, and she's just a comforting presence.

What a cool thing to find on this site, guys. You've restore my faith in the folks over here (even if I do get annoyed with Enty, whomever he/she may be).
