And the claws come out. Chelsea Handler, who is actually best friends with Jennifer Aniston in real life, covers the May issue of More magazine and says that she thinks she wouldn’t trust a woman like Angelina Jolie. I’m paraphrasing here, but this is what she tells the mag:
When asked who in Hollywood she thinks is the opposite of a "girl’s girl," she says, “Probably Angelina Jolie. You just know as a woman when you see another woman if that’s a woman you can trust. She (Jolie) doesn’t strike me as someone I would have a close friendship with.”
I think every woman in Hollywood breathed a sigh of relief when Jolie first shacked up with Brad Pitt, like “Oh, thank god that woman will never seduce my husband.”
That being said, Handler has had her fair share of “bad girl” stories. Many people say she only got her TV show on E! because she was sleeping with the then E! Network executive, Ted Harbert.
“Ted Harbert is not responsible for me selling four books on the New York Times list. He’s not responsible for me selling out arenas. All he did was recognize talent,” says Handler, “He put Roseanne Barr on the air. He put Brett Butler on the air. This is a guy who notices female comedians, and he noticed me. You don’t get a TV show because you’re sleeping with someone. That’s when you get a walk-on role as, like, a female police officer.”
Chelsea also talks Whitney Houston and addiction, especially since Chelsea Handler is very jokey about her own so-called “addiction” to vodka.
“Well, that’s an issue [Whitney Houston] about years and years of abuse. I don’t ever want to abuse something so much that I’m forced to give it up,” she then pauses and deadpans, “And that’s why I’m only going to have seven margaritas during this interview.”
