This is not the first time Chelsea Handler has publicly sh-t on Angelina Jolie. She’s called her a f-cking c-nt, she’s called her a homewrecker, she’s good for it every time. And she’s asked about it every time. If I were interviewing her for etalk, I would ask her too. Because she always delivers. And then there’s a headline. And the headline attracts attention.
Handler appeared on Bravo’s What Happens Live this week and when asked about Jolie, she came through again:
“She seems like a demon. It has nothing to do with Jennifer. As a woman, I know when you see somebody walking across the room that's a bad girl. I just don't like Angelina Jolie. I don't think she's a girl's girl. I like girl's girls!"
Needless to say, this story has now made it onto every entertainment news website. Good for Gossip... but is it good for Chelsea and, more importantly, Jennifer Aniston? Because no matter how she denies it, Chelsea’s attacks on the Jolie are interpreted as attacks on behalf of Jennifer. Which kinda makes Jennifer not unlike Taylor Swift this week in Vanity Fair when she wouldn’t talk about her private life but “authorised a friend” to do so on her behalf, taking down Harry Styles in the process.
Taylor Swift is 23 years old. She is a silly girl. Jennifer Aniston is 44, not a silly girl. But her friend, her friend is making her look silly. And we’ve been told by Team Aniston that she’s better than that, that she’s so totally over that. Only Chelsea keeps undermining her. If I’m Jennifer Aniston then, I’m shutting that down.
But it’s not her fault what comes out of Chelsea’s mouth! She can’t tell her friend what she can and can’t say!
No. She can’t. But, as a friend, she can ask her friend to respect her, because, whether intended or not, every time Chelsea Handler throws down on Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston is mentioned. And if she’s mentioned, it means she’s part of the story. And if she’s part of the story unwillingly, she has every right to ask her friend to take her out of it.
Unless...she doesn’t want to be taken out of it?
As I’ve said many times before, all three of them do their part to sustain the Triangle. Brange and Jennifer will be together forever.
