By now you've all heard the tragic news: Angelina Jolie has filed for #Divorce from Brad Pitt. Reactions to the news have been all over the place, from stunned #Brangelina fans to a stoic reaction from George Clooney, who seemed not to be in-the-know about his pal's split from his wife. 

Before Brangelina, there was Jen and Brad

But there is the reaction from one person that has everyone talking: #Jennifer Aniston. In case you've had other things to do in life and haven't kept up with the Hollywood lives and loves, some background: Once upon a time, Jennifer and Brad were married.

In 2005, Brad dumped Jen and hooked up with Angelina, whom he apparently got to know very well while they filed Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The pair has been together ever since and has six children.

I'll be there for you...until I'm not.

As one of the most famous jilted wives in Hollywood history (we're talking Eddie Fisher /Debbie Reynolds/ Liz Taylor levels here), it seemed like the entire world watched as Jen worked through what had to be one of the most painful experiences of her life. But after a couple of relationships with other high-profile men (John Mayer, anyone?), she found happiness with Justin Theroux in 2011 and remarried last year. 

So, Brad and Angie are together with their cargo van full of kids, and Jen and Justin are together, and all is right with the world. Until yesterday. Now everyone is DYING to know how Jen feels about the split.

Does she think it's #karma? Is Angelina getting a dose of her own medicine if the cheating rumors are actually true? Did Angelina drive Brad to drink and smoke pot to deal with her? WHAT DOES JENNIFER THINK OF ALL OF THIS? 

Jen's radio silence

Well, she hasn't made a public statement, and I'm going to go out on a limb and say she's never going to. Why would she? Why throw herself back into the middle of the chaos? #Brangelina drug her through the mud once, why dive back into voluntarily. Nope, I think Jennifer is going to let her friends make comments, while she continues to bask in the afterglow of the old adage, "a life well lived is the best revenge."

Well played Jennifer.
