(Hi Gasmii, and welcome to Pop Quiz, where we take a celebrity rumor, drop you into the middle of it and then ask what you would do in that situation. Remember there are no wrong answers, as long as you make an effort to judge a person you will probably never meet in your life.)
Okay Gasmi, for our first pop quiz, we’ll look in at a rumor that is floating around about Justin Timerlake’s wedding to
himself, Jessica Biel. Now there are a lot of rumors floating around the interwebs about this social event right now, but our story concerns Jennifer Biel possibly dealing with her new mom-in-law. Here is the lowdown courtesy of The Sun Times. You can get the whole story here. Also, please keep in mind that this is just a rumor floating around the internet, and that means that it’s more likely that the only disagreement between Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s mom is probably who gets to make s’mores for who. But for our purposes, lets just suppose what is written below is actually what is going on.
“A source close to the actress said Monday, “As far as Jessica was concerned, she would have been just as happy to have a very small wedding with only a handful of friends and close family members present.” But Timberlake’s mom, Lynn Harless, wanted a nice, splashy bash for her beloved boy.
Biel — who had split with Timberlake before they reunited and got engaged earlier this year — apparently has come to understand “that Lynn is a very powerful factor in Justin’s life and, if she wants to have a smooth marriage, she has to have Lynn in her corner. … A big part of that is letting Lynn have her way.”
Harless is not only co-manager of Timberlake’s career, she also runs his finances, his media company and his charitable foundation.”
First of all, that last paragraph in the quote has nothing to do with this story, but, eww. You just know his mom is buying JT’s underwear, and she has no intention of stopping any time soon.
Anyway, our pop quiz, if you are Jessica Biel, how do you handle this situation? Do you just let Justin’s mom decide the details of your wedding, or do you draw a line in the sand for your special day?
I mean on the one hand, it took a lot of effort on Jessica’s part to land Justin, like Old Man and the Sea effort, so maybe if you’re Jessica Biel you just suck it up and get through the day, and move on to the rest of your life?
On the other hand, maybe given the fact that Justin’s mom had him in Toddler and Tiara pageants as a child, worked her ass off to get her kid on to The Mickey Mouse Club, and then dropped her 14-year-old son off with Ron Pearlman, a Jabba the Hutt like grifter/pedophile to get his boy band going, you might think that there is no such thing as too early when it comes to setting boundaries with this woman? I mean unless you want to wake up one day and find out that Mamma Rose has taken your children to Soul to get them a K-Pop gig.
