Jennifer Aniston is about to make a huge television comeback. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Aniston will star alongside Reese Witherspoon in an upcoming television show centered around competing morning news shows in New York.
It is being reported that Jennifer Aniston will not only star in the show, but she will also serve as an executive producer, and although the upcoming show has not been given a name or network home as of yet, it is already expected to become a huge hit.
This is big news for Jennifer Aniston who became a star for her portrayal of Rachel Green on the massive hit television show, “Friends” from 1994-2004. For her role on “Friends”, Jennifer won an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and a Screen Actors Guild Award. But after the cancellation of “Friends”, Jennifer tried to become a movie star. Although she saw some early success with the movie, “The Good Girl” for which she won an Independent Spirit Award, Jennifer starred in a string of romantic comedies which flopped at the box office.
For years, Jennifer was a punching bag in the media due to her box office bombs and the fact that ex-husband, Brad Pitt left her for Angelina Jolie. Jennifer was forced to watch as Angelina Jolie landed prime movie roles and critics showered her with praise for not only her acting, but her humanitarian work as well.
But, now the tables have turned and after years of portraying the perfect Hollywood couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s marriage failed and what has followed has been a bitter divorce and custody battle for the former couple’s six children. And, after years of being the most popular actress in Hollywood, Angelina Jolie’s career is in a slump.
Angelina’s last few movies have been disasters at the box office, and her directorial debut for the film “By the Sea”, which also starred Brad Pitt, was laughed at and given horrible reviews for both Angelina’s acting and directing. To top it all off, Angelina is now mired in controversy with many accusing the star of taking advantage of children in Cambodia while filming an upcoming movie.
Sources close to Jennifer Aniston have reportedly said that the actress thinks Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce, as well as Angelina’s career slump, is “karma” for Angelina cheating with Brad while he and Jennifer were married. Now Jennifer can’t wait until her new hit show debuts making her a star again while Angelina’s career continues to flounder.
