Chelsea Handler has made a fortune by being an opinionated chatterbox, but this time, the funny girl’s big mouth has gotten her into BIG trouble with her new best friend, Jennifer Aniston!
Chelsea Handler made jaws drop on Friday, December 3, when she went on a nasty public rant against Angelina Jolie at a standup gig in Newark, New Jersey, calling the pillow-lipped star a “c**t” and a “homewrecker” and a “f**king b**ch” who doesn’t have any female friends.
The fall-out? According to Rob Shuter at Pop Eater, Jennifer Aniston is pissed!
Perhaps Chelsea thought she was being a loyal friend by trash-talking the woman who stole her best friend’s man. But we have to admit, we don’t blame Jennifer! Wouldn’t you feel blindsided if your BFF, someone you’ve surely confided in about men—someone who you brought with you on an ALL-EXPENSES PAID Mexican vacation for Thanksgiving!—went off on “the other woman,” making you look like a bitter ex by default?
Adding insult to injury, Chelsea’s rant occurred just days before Angie’s movie, The Tourist, was set to open, ensuring that the media focus would be once again on Brangelina and that her scathing comments would be picked up all over the world–landing Jen on magazine covers linked to Brad and Angie.
According to Pop Eater, “Chelsea hates Angelina. Everyone in Hollywood is scared to say what they really think about Angelina except Chelsea.”
This isn’t the first time Jen has felt betrayed by a friend, Shuter points out. Remember when John Mayer held a “press conference” outside of his New York apartment to annouce that he dumped Jen? And then when he blabbed about their relationship to Playboy magazine, calling her a “technophobe.”? (Mayer later apologized for being so loose-lipped.)
Since the media firestorm started, Chelsea has been quick to point out that her attacks had nothing to do with Jennifer. On her show, Chelsea Lately, she laughed and said, “I’ve been making fun of Angelina Jolie since she made out with her brother. If I’ve learned nothing from this, it’s to write some new jokes.”
We couldn’t agree more. Jen doesn’t think it’s a laughing matter, and if you’re not careful Chelsea, she might drop you from her inner circle!
