In yesterday’s Chelsea Handler post – the one about Chelsea single white female-ing Jennifer Aniston’s hair (and life!) – some commenters suggested a hidden history between Jennifer and Chelsea, a conspiracy theory that I hadn’t heard. The theory: that Chelsea had hooked up with Justin Theroux in some way and that perhaps Chelsea and Jennifer’s relationship was ruined because of it, and maybe that’s why Jen and Justin are acting like they’re broken up too. Just to be clear: no one has any evidence that any of that happened. At all. It’s just an interesting theory. But Star Magazine has a different theory! According to unnamed “Aniston pals,” Jennifer has begun to realize that Chelsea Handler is a gauche starf—ker. *clutches pearls*
Onetime besties Jennifer Aniston and Chelsea Handler are on the outs, thanks to the E! talk show host’s “aggressive attempts” to upgrade her friendships!
“Jen called Chelsea a suck-up for begging for an invite to Sandra Bullock’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony and hanging all over her,” hisses an Aniston pal. “Chelsea doesn’t even know Sandra!”
Jen’s also rolling her eyes over Chelsea’s gauche behavior. “Chelsea name-drops everyone she hangs out with, whether it’s Charlize Theron, Reese Witherspoon, Katie Couric or 50 Cent,” says the insider, “Jen’s definitely pulled back from Chelsea.”

Here’s my question: Jennifer is just realizing this NOW? Chelsea has always been on the Uptradey Warpath (she’s like Pippa Middleton only… no, there’s no difference). Chelsea has always traded favors and favorable coverage for off-camera “friendships” and access. She’s always been gauche. It says more that being “gauche” about uptrading girlfriends is more of a dealbreaker for Aniston than, say, all of that awful crap Chelsea has said about Angelina Jolie and the Jolie-Pitt children.
