Chelsea Handler attacked Angelina Jolie on the behalf of new BFF Jennifer Aniston — but is that acceptable behavior or completely immature?

Hell hath no fury like the BFF of a woman scorned, apparently. Although Jennifer Aniston has made very few digs at ex-husband Brad Pitt’s new partner, Angelina Jolie, her bestie, Chelsea Handler, has taken the task upon herself and dissed Angie during a recent stand-up comedy show. But is her bad behavior OK, or is it a reflection on Jen?

During her show in Newark, NJ. Dec. 3, the comedienne extraordinaire sniped of Angelina, “She can rescue as many babies from as many countries as she wants to. I don’t f**king believe you … she gives interviews, ‘I don’t have a lot of female friends.’ Cause you’re a f**king c**t … you’re a f**king b***h.” WOW.

Although Jen and Chelsea are relatively new friends, they’ve become tight pretty quickly, even spending Thanksgiving together in Mexico. But is it Chelsea’s place to say what Jen won’t?

You may attack me for saying this, but I think it’s perfectly acceptable for Chelsea to light into Angelina. After all, the ink was barely dry on Brad and Jen’s divorce before she moved in for the kill (or even beforehand!  if you believe the gossip, Angie was actually the catalyst behind the golden couple’s divorce). However, Chelsea isn’t just being a good friend — Angelina and her brood have been a prime source of derision for the talk show host for years. She wasn’t lying when she posted on her Twitter page, “I have been making fun of angelina jolie for years. Period.”

Sure, if you’re in a similar situation, it’s going to slightly reflect on you if your friends start dissing your ex and his new woman. It’s a backhanded way of actually saying what you feel yourself. However, YOU can’t actually control what’s coming out of your friends’ mouths, now can you? I say as long as it isn’t constant, and you’re not actually involved, it isn’t the worst thing in the world. Sure, it’s immature — but sometimes immaturity is going to make you feel a hell of a lot better.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is it OK for your pals to trash talk your ex and his new lady love?
