LAURA'S LOVE ADVICE: Is It OK For Your Pals To Trash Your Ex & His New Woman, As Chelsea Did For Jen?

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?

lame, lisa, it’s lame for her to do this. Mainly because it makes Jen Aniston look so ninth grade, like she’s sending anonymous hate letters to Angelina in her locker. If i were Jen, I would be MORTIFIED cause it looks like she put chelsea up to it,a nd chelsea looks like the unpopular kid who does something desperate to get noticed.

I have never read such nonsense how could it be acceptable for Chelsea Handler Jens BFF to lit into Angie. How many times have JA said she have moved on and have tried to portray an image of contentment with her single lifestyle. That tirade from her BFF says it all . Jennifer Aniston is a lonely pathetic person who is stil pining for Brad Pitt,I would be so embarrassed I would want to hide.

If recent

If this was recent I would understand, but this happened almost 6 years ago. All this does is make it look like Jen still dwells on the breakup.

In general, no it’s not okay but in this instance it most certainly was okay for Chelsea to do what she did. And it’s not just Angie – I would say that about anyone who did what she did.

Somebody said if your mate could be taken away that easily, did you really have them to start with and it is a legitimate question. However, just because somebody asks “do you want to….?” doesn’t mean the “spoken for” partner has to say yes. They could and should say no. As for people drifting apart, it’s true you can’t help it. But you don’t stay in your old business and cheat like Brad and Angie did. You give your about-to-be former partner the dignity and respect of closing out your old business first. Brad and Angie spent months saying nothing happned on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, then they said that something did happen after all but Brad and Jen were already seperated. Well if that was true, why lie about it all those months to start with?

Brad and Angie will find out – and much soone than they would like – that what somebody does with you they will do to you that much faster – and they both deserve everything they get.

If you’re going to diss do it in private, to do it publicly is ignorant and in poor taste, and makes you look like an ass! Handler has done this before making awful comments about AJ when Anniston was on her show. Is Anniston still so desperate to believe that Jolie stole her husband–honey you can’t steal someone who doesn’t want to be stolen. Never understood why Anniston gushes about her ex, who left her, but goes after Jolie. If JA was a class act she would have stopped this behavior years ago and moved on. The only way she thinks she can stay relevant is to always bring up Jolie. BP & AJ have moved on and matured to raise a lovely family and do amazing philanthropic work. What has JA done except make horrible movies (her last movie opened 8th after Lil Bow Wow LOL)sun, drink and hang out with her girlfriends! JA is just as shallow in real life as all the characters she has played.

it is ok for your friends to diss the New Mr.s but!!! Obviously, Jen and Chelsea were talking about Brad and Angelina while on vacation!! THe first thing that came to my mind was JENNNNNIFER…IT’S BEEN OVER 5 YEARS!!!! TIME TO MOVE ON AND GET OVER IT!!! HOW MANY KIDS TO THEY HAVE! STOP EVEN MENTIONING ANGELINA IN THE SAME BREATH AS YOUR FRIENDS BECAUSE THEY AREN’T WORTH IT..
Im sorry to say, I lovvvvvvvvvved Jennifer and Brad, but Brad is the one that dumped you… A woman CAN’T take your man if he was really in love with you!!! I honestly believe that… If your man is that easily influenced and CAN be taken away from you, did you ever really have something that special??? SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
