Jennifer Aniston and Chelsea Handler are best buds who are helping each other troll LA for eligible bachelors, according to this week’s National Enquirer. I didn’t realize that these two were even friends, but it makes sense. Chelsea, supposedly 35, convinced Jen, 41, to join a gym with her in order to scout for guys, while Jen has Chelsea join her at the dog park with their pooches. The two are even said to host “weekly vodka mixer parties” with instructions to their friends to bring along single guys.
Jen helped Chelsea renovate her new Los Angeles home earlier this year, and now that the home improvement projects are complete, Chelsea has started hosting weekly vodka mixer parties, says the insider.
“For the get-togethers, Jen and Chelsea demand that each female guest bring eligible bachelors to mingle with their other single female friends.”
But the new BFFs aren’t about to stop there in their quest for true love. Chelsea, 35, persuaded her 41-year-old pal to join Crunch fitness in West Hollywood by raving about all the “hot, scantily clad men” that work out there. And Jen pointed out to Chelsea that “men are suckers for cute pooches,” so the women – along with their dogs – have become fixtures at Hollywood dog parks.
Jen and Chelsea are both hoping this new, bold approach to dating will ramp up their love lives.

I love that idea and it sounds like a lot of fun! Jennifer Aniston was a guest on Chelsea’s show last September to promote Love Happens. (You can watch the video on Hulu here.) They didn’t seem to be friends at that point, at least they didn’t make any references to it, but they did bond over their love of vodka and dogs. Chelsea asked Jen what she drinks to “keep her body like that” because whatever she’s drinking “isn’t working.” When Jen asked Chelsea what she drinks, she answered “I drink vodka.”
“That’s what I drink,” Jen enthused. “It’s clean, clear. No sugar.”
“That’s why I drink it, but it doesn’t seem like the same thing is happening.”
“First of all, you’re crazy. Second of all, how many are you drinking?” Chelsea didn’t answer and Jen went on to tell her that her body was gorgeous. They later talked about how their dogs were super protective of them and followed them everywhere.
These two are a hoot and this story is too much. You can imagine that Chelsea is the forward one helping Jen get out of her comfort zone and meet new men. There are plenty of guys who would like a piece of Chelsea and Jen.
