(Newser) New York’s Vulture blog pulls this priceless tidbit from yesterday’s New York Times Magazine tribute to Hollywood super-agent Sue Mengers: In her piece remembering Mengers, who died this year, Maureen Dowd recalls the time that Mengers gave some advice to Jennifer Aniston after Brad Pitt left her for Angelina Jolie. Writes Dowd, “Mengers told me that she advised her beloved Jen to ask Brad for some of his sperm.” Writes Vulture’s Kyle Buchanan, “Maureen Dowd, the editors from Star and the National Enquirer are surely giving you the slow clap this week.” (Click to see the holiday card Aniston and her boyfriend sent this year.)
