Hollywood’s favorite single girl has got the rumor mill churning yet again, this time with actor Justin Theroux, 39.  RadarOnline reports that Jennifer Aniston, 42, spent the entire weekend together with the actor.  However, the mother of Theroux’s longtime girlfriend is speaking out to put an end to the speculation.  Marilyn Bivens, mother of Heidi Bivens, said, “It’s not true at all.  That’s from Justin’s own mouth.  He said he was with her at a dinner party with a lot of other people.  It’s been just a big, big misunderstanding – and you can take that as the truth.”

Cupid’s Advice:

There’s one thing that everyone loves to gossip about: relationships.  Cupid has some ideas on how to keep the whispers about your dating life under control:

1. Keep it under wraps: If you don’t want people talking about your relationship, keep it secret… for now.  Once you’re ready for people to know, introduce your partner to friends and family.

2. Be honest: If you are upfront about your relationship status, you can stop the gossip before it starts.

3. Don’t pay attention: By refusing to dignify rumors with an answer, you are showing gossipmongers that you don’t care what they think.
