Cosmopolitan Editor Irked by Team Jen Celebration

It's Twilight all over again.

The picture painted by Cosmopolitan executive lifestyle editor Helin Jung is dramatic.

Here is how she describes the scene in New York today as TMZ’s docket-scoop began reverberating:

When news broke Tuesday that Angelina had filed for divorce, a roar reverberated through the office among the ranks of Team Jen. I heard gasps, then cheers, from co-workers who had been wanting vengeance for Jen since 2005. What a sweet, sweet moment of victory. America’s golden girl gets cheated on by her golden boy husband, and over a decade later, he’s thrown to the curb by the other woman. Isn’t karma a bitch.

Jung is having none of that. The headline for her item admonishes: “Stop Rejoicing Over Brad and Angelina’s Divorce,” followed by an equally terse sub-headline. A separate item, filed around the same time by Hearst digital editor Emma Dibdin, concurs, bannering: “Stop Dragging Jennifer Aniston Into Brad and Angelina’s Breakup.”

Perhaps, for this pair of Cosmo writers, drinks or a lunch are in order. And if Jung and Dibdin need a third, may we suggest The Huffington Post’s senior news editor of entertainment Leigh Blickley. Here’s her headline.
