Chelsea Handler: Brad Pitt ‘self-medicated’ because Angelina is ‘a f–king lunatic’


You guys are responsible for this. It’s like saying “Beetlejuice” three times – if you mention “I wonder if Chelsea Handler is going to say something about Brangelina,” you’re officially responsible for invoking Chelsea. Handler crawled out of her demon lair on Wednesday to make a video about how much she hates Angelina Jolie. Chelsea has a long history of saying nasty sh-t about Angelina, and at some point you would have thought CAA (Chelsea’s agency) or Jennifer Aniston (Chelsea’s friend) would have told Chelsea to just give it a rest. The fact that Handler is still talking means, to me, that she has Aniston’s blessing. And that has always made me think less of Aniston. So, Chelsea had to chime in. This is what she posted (it’s a clip from her Netflix show). NSFW for language.

The big quote is this:

“There are rumors that part of the problem was that Brad was allegedly drinking and smoking too much weed. I wonder why he would need to self-medicate. Maybe because he could have been spending the last 12 years at Lake Como hanging out with George Clooney and Matt Damon, instead of being stuck in a house with 85 kids speaking 15 different languages. Oh yeah, because he married a f–king lunatic, that’s why.”

[Via the DM]

Well, someone is a f—king lunatic, but I’m not sure it’s Angelina Jolie. What else is there to say? If this is representative of “Team Aniston,” then I’m still happily Team Jolie.

This whole thing has only reminded me that Handler slurred her way out of a lucrative E! show and now she’s on a notably crappy Netflix show that no one watches and the few people who have watched it think it’s awful. Someone is getting the last laugh, and I’m not sure it’s Chelsea Handler.

    I dislike her so much.

    • Snazzy says:

      Me too. There is nothing remotely interesting about this woman

    • SilverUnicorn says:

      Add me to the queue.

      She’s an idiot and also a huge misogynist. So is it always women’s fault that men drink or use drugs?

      Dear Chelsea, you’re revolting, really. Take one million seats.

      • g.lamerek says:

        Agreed. Making fun of adopted families when there are so many orphans,shame on her.

      • Cherry says:

        IKR? That made me mad, too. How is it the wife’s fault if the husband drinks and uses drugs? Does he not have free will, or a mind of his own? And how is it better to be ‘spending the last 12 years at Lake Como hanging out with George Clooney and Matt Damon, instead of being stuck in a house with 85 kids speaking 15 different languages’? They’re HIS kids, amirite? HE CHOSE THIS LIFE. He married that woman. He fathered those kids. Nobody put a gun to his head.

      • eggy weggs says:

        Team #ChelseaGoAway. What a wretched, cruel, vile person to say such things. If Brad Pitt has problems, they are his own and/or based on his own decisions in life.

      • MI6 says:

        ^ This. X 1000
        She positively REEKS of misandry and racisim.

      • bettyrose says:

        There’s not really anything to add here, but I always thought Brad wanted children, lots of children, and that was part of the chemistry between him and Angie. I mean, 6 kids is a lot, and even with 12 nannies and a zillion dollars, there are probably moments when the responsibility feels overwhelming, with six young lives depending on you for guidance. And I can totally see how that would put a strain on a marriage, but he chose to have those children (whether through adoption or conception) just as much as she did. (And, what, 15 languages? Like that’s a bad thing?)

    • Hannah says:

      And you thought being on Taylor Squad was crazy.

    • Jenni says:

      And there is a lot of people who dislike breangelina.

      • Maya says:

        Disliking someone is fine but people like you rejoiced the fact a family of 8 split up.

        Chelsea is also racist towards the JP children and vile towards Angelina. That is hatred.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      She is a truly despicable human being.

      • Justjj says:

        She really is. She’s an awful racist, womankind hating mysoginist pig. I’m 1000% w Kaiser here that Chelsea Handler alone is a reason to be full team Jolie. People in dysfunctional families with substance abuse issues blame themselves already and suffer all kinds of small emotional psychological stressors every single day. Blaming them for their family member’s alcoholism??? Ooook.

      • Trishizle says:

        Agreed. She really needs to let go of this obsession she has with AJ

    • Olenna says:

      ITA. My first thought when I saw the headline was not even close to being as respectable to yours.

    • Snappyfish says:

      Agreed. (Warning shocking comment coming) If I used the C U next Tuesday word it would be used for her. She is unfunny. She was disrespectful to Joan Rivers & she slept her way to her E contract with a married man. The friends she has acquired Aniston, Witherspoon & Bullock make me question whether they are also mean girls in disguise.

      • Erinn says:

        I think Witherspoon has shown her mean-girl kind of ways with that drunk scene a while back.

        I like Bullock – but I really question her based on who she spends time with/marries. Aniston – I don’t know. I don’t like her really, but I don’t dislike her either… but she sits idly by and claims this woman as a friend – so I mean, there’s that.

      • KWM says:

        My mother always said show me your friends and you will show me who you really are. Seems to sum up this situation perfectly.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      So do I. She’s a mouthy, hateful, arrested adolescent. And was NEVER funny.

    • Hannah says:

      I think there is something psychologically wrong with Chelsea. It is not normal at all to rage at someone like this, especially since she’s not even involved in the situation herself. She sounds completely crazy when she talks about Angelina. She needs to get her own life and focus on other things.

      • Mary Mary says:

        No one should insult the innocent children who are not responsible for either the behavior and choices their parents make.

        As for Ms. Chelsea, she has shown the world who she really is; a racist “friend?” of Aniston.

        If, JA does not release a response at some point and say something to smooth over the blast of Handler’s mouthy insults, the impression will remain of Aniston silently condoning Handler’s stinging over-the-top remarks.

        #Team Jolie

      • bettyrose says:

        Yeah, that’s totally it. I mean, that’s crossing a line even for a mean girl. It’s one thing to be like “yeah biyotch, karma” but quite another to insult children on the basis of them not all being U.S. born.

    • Darkladi says:

      Dear Chelsea,

      Just because you have sand in your vagina doesn’t mean you have to take it out on the rest of us.

    • Barbara says:

      Me too

    • Elizabeth says:

      Me too! she isn’t funny and is an embarrassment to all women

    • delorb says:

      Good lord. She’s a shock comic. She’ll do whatever it takes to shock people and get hits. Angie has very vocal fans who will engage, so the easiest way to get hits is to target Angie. Best thing to do with this person is to ignore.

  2. Luca76 says:

    Ugh she is just a nasty piece of nothing and it reflects so badly on Jen that she’s friends with her.

    • JFresh says:

      Yeah, really ugly language. No good can come from that.

      I get that comedians are supposed to keep public figures on their toes and I believe in freedom of speech to the extreme. I also think Chelsea is funny sometimes, I kind of like her. But this is just low. Not smart, not funny, not necessary.

    • doofus says:

      I wish she’d ditch this b*tch, too, but…

      …how close are they really these days? when was the last time we saw them together or heard of them hanging out? (honestly asking b/c I don’t know and can’t recall any recent sightings…)

      plus, I don’t agree that this means she has Aniston’s blessing…NO ONE is responsible for other people’s actions. however, if they ARE still friends, Aniston needs to tell her to STFU.

    • sherry says:

      I agree. My mother always told me, “Rightly or not, you are judged by the company you keep. Choose wisely.”

      Rightly or not, the fact Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston are BFF’s with Handler makes me judge them as not great people.

      • honeybee blues says:

        As the saying goes, “Show me who your friends are, and I’ll tell you who you are.”

      • Christin says:

        I find that to be true. And while we cannot control what others say or do on our behalf, we can tell a ‘friend’ to stop and do our part to clean up the mess when something is as vile as this.

        There are children involved, and suggesting their father messed up by having them in his life is terrible.

      • Bonzo says:

        I say this when fans express shock that the “nice guy/girl” hooks up with the “nasty Piece of Work”:

        Water seeks its own level.

        Applies to Jen and Chelsea. You ARE the company you choose to keep. They are who you will become or who you already are.

    • yolo112 says:

      I would be pissed if I were Jen. If JA was a decent person she would have a little chat with her buddy about this. It’s cool if Chelsea doesn’t like AJ, but I thought we learned a lesson with kids when the whole Amber/Kanye thing went down. Leave the kids out of the drama.

      I never liked Chelsea before, this just solidifies my feelings.

      • bettyrose says:

        Yep. I would be mortified if a friend of mine went after one of my exes. Actually, I once found out after the fact that a friend of mine ran into an ex of mine from a million years ago at a party, and they totally had a nice conversation (like “remember the old days?”) and that was it. And the moral of that is: grow up. What is even the point?

    • Hannah says:

      I give anyone who is friends with Handler a huge side-eye. She’s a nasty, nasty piece of work.

  3. Nacelle says:

    Stop blaming the woman. Pathetic men like Brad Pitt need to grow up.

  4. tifzlan says:

    She is truly a reprehensible human being. No thought in the world for 6 children whose lives are being turned upside down now. Why does she think her opinions and commentary is needed every single time? WHO told her she was funny? WHO decided to make her famous? I want heads to roll for bringing this POS to our attention.

    • lilacflowers says:

      “85 children speaking 15 different languages.” She truly is a very special jerk of a snowflake.

      • Liberty says:

        The whole thing was disgusting, but I agree, lilacflowers, that THAT nugget about the children was vile. She’s a massive jerk. What a tiny sour soul.

      • Pedro45 says:

        Right? She sounds like a Trump supporter. Also, nice victim-blaming – “Hey kids, if some of you weren’t so foreign and un-American then Daddy wouldn’t get drunk and abuse you.”

      • SilverUnicorn says:

        She’s the worst!!

      • Anthi says:

        ikr? She’s pathetic.

      • Little Darling says:

        I think she’s a different emoji altogether. The smiling piece of poo one. Jackhole for sure.

      • LittleTeaPot says:

        well, she sure ain’t special & she is certainly no snowflake — just an all around jerk. She is the forever loud-mouth, blathering at the wrong place & time.

      • PrincessMe says:

        Absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe she still has a show.

      • Tiny Martian says:

        Shrug. Handler has no compassion and really doesn’t like kids, so of course she thinks that anyone who does is a lunatic. She seemingly has no ability to understand anyone with a perspective that is different from her own.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Right? And why does she always go in on the children? Does she hate kids or something?

      I’m hesitant to believe though that Aniston is au fait with this though. I think they’re more industry friends than true friends.

      • Tourmaline says:

        Yes, she hates kids or something. It’s part of her “brand”

      • pinetree13 says:

        I used to have a tiny, tiny bit of a soft spot for Chelsea (not sure why) but that quote just COMPLETELY turned me against her. What a horrible, horrible thing to say. Oh they have a lot of kids from different countries? HOW DISGUSTING no wonder he drank! Well nice to know you’re a horrible and RACIST person. I can’t even believe she said that. I am just shocked and revolted that she would say that. You hate Jolie? Whatever. But to say something like that about THEIR children? Made me right mad.

  5. Jen says:

    What is she even trying to say? He could have been partying without responsibilities for 12 years instead of being a father? If only Chelsea Handler was half as witty and incisive as she thinks she is.

    • Onerous says:

      Right? She’s so awful. Because *she* can’t see the benefits of having a family that means anyone else who does is an idiot. Chelsea herself is an admittedly rampant user of alcohol and pot – to the point that she included in her mini-series video of her friends telling her she has a problem. But yeah, Angelina Jolie is the lunatic. Sure. She is so vile.

    • Tiffany says:

      And in those 12 years Clooney got married and Damon also got married and is a father of 4.

      She truly is a idiot.

    • Emily says:

      And why is she still so pissed on her friend’s (also married) behalf? It’s been 12 years. Find something new.

  6. Jegede says:

    Chelsea Handler does not ‘need’ Aniston’s blessing for anything.

    Handler hates Jolie (and not Pitt funny enough) for her own reasons and obviously delights in how the media reports her diatribes.

    It’s ALL that keeps Handler in the news at this point.
    And she’ll keep revving it up.

    • Loopy says:

      I think its unfair to say she has Anistons blessings, she is a grown woman and only she controls her unfunny mouth.

    • Goats on the Roof says:

      Silly to say she has Jen Aniston’s blessing. Chelsea, disgusting creature she is, is the only one responsible for what comes out of her mouth.

    • Naya says:

      Exactly. She is a “shock comedian” with a show nobody knows existed and this gold nugget fell in her lap. She is like Trump, fueled by outrage media. Literally stop covering her. Like just stop and she will lose the show and vanish into the night.

      • Jegede says:

        Yep, that and trolling Instagram with ‘outrageous’ pics for attention.

        I doubt her agents/agency are happy with any of that or condone it, but y’know Chelsea is in her damn 40s she knows right from wrong.

        The Jolie rants will AGAIN put her in the headlines and no doubt giver her videos their highest hits to date. Mission Accomplished.

      • Pepper says:

        This. She’s a shock jock personality who figured out a long time ago that saying Jolie’s name gets her attention. It’s not like she’s an otherwise gentle comedian who only rips on the Jolie-Pitts, she’s said similarly awful stuff about dozens and dozens of people, including some people she’s close with and some people Aniston’s close with. Dislike her all you want, but the idea that she rings up Aniston and runs her comments by her is ridiculous. The woman is very well connected in Hollywood, if she did her business like that she’d be running all her jokes about celebs by some other celeb who shares a connection with everyone involved.

    • doofus says:

      yeah, I said the same above. Handler will do what Handler wants to do, she doesn’t need Aniston’s OK.

      I also asked how close are they, really, these days? when was the last time we saw or heard of them hanging out?

      • almondmilk says:


        Don’t know how tight they are these days. But where some people go wrong is assuming Chelsea Handler and Aniston had this organically derived friendship based on shared goals and common interests. Uh, no. Lol.

        Handler became a client of Jen Aniston’s longtime bestie and power publicist, Stephen Huvane, in 2008, and shortly after that we started seeing the arranged dinners and trips between them. Prior to becoming a huvane client, Handler beat up on Aniston in Iittle sketches. I know because I watched her show in its early days. It wasn’t great but it wasn’t the worst- namely because she had veteran comics doing sketch comedy. Anyway, I’m here to tell you, her bits were much harder on Aniston than Jolie. I often thought that may have been a reason why Huvane brought her into the fold to stop the nasty Jen digs. It was part of his MO – I recalled he did the same thing around the same time with Perez Hilton to stop calling her ‘Maniston.’ Perez finally called off the dogs and got a walk on on Courtney Cox’s show Dirt.

        Not long after Handler signed with Huvane, unsurprisingly she ended the Jen digs and went ham on Angelina. Not talking jokey jokes and sketch bits – but just Handler screaming that Angelina is a demon and bad person and c-word and not a friend to women blah blah blah. There was no punchline and there still isn’t. Just getting the point across that Angelina is deserving of nothing but hate. He got his other clients in on the act too. paltrow was recruited to interview Handler about her Uganda book, and she was fed a question to ask Handler about women who aren’t girls girls. Allowing both of them and the audience to snicker over the Angelina inference.

        I say all that to say….

        I don’t know if Jen knows her every move. But I’m pretty certain she checks these diatribes with her (their shared) high powered publicist, as after all it could reflect on his other clients. I not only think he’s fine with it, I think both he and Jen, expect it.

    • Kitten says:

      Well said, Jegede. She really does suck though.

  7. detritus says:

    Oh Chelsea.
    Holding out for the quiet and well thought out statement eh?

    It’s true, a woman is ALWAYS responsible for her husband addictions. Just like she’s responsible for provoking him.

    With children involved this whole statement becomes in even worst taste.

  8. Mew says:

    Soooo… why was he self-medicating when he was with Aniston? Why he’s been self-medicating all along? Besides, he was the one wanting huge family. Oh, get a grip, shut up and just disappear Handler.

  9. greenmonster says:

    So, she is a racist, misogynistic idiot. Brad “medicated” himself while he was with JA (probably before her). Why was he doing so? Because JA had a f–kin lunatic friend?
    AJ is not the reason he smokes weed or drinks. THEIR kids are not the reason! The reason lies with him alone!!!

  10. QueenB says:

    she has an unhealthy obsession with Angelina

    • Goats on the Roof says:

      My first response was, “Like Kanye and Taylor Swift.” However, I don’t think Chelsea is actually obsessed with Angelina. I think she’s just a do-nothing nobody who doesn’t get any attention anymore. Mocking one half of the world’s biggest couple is sure to get her noticed.

    • Elizabeth says:

      That’s what I’ve always thought.

  11. Soror Bro says:

    Now all we need is Trump to weigh in with his thoughts on the matter.

  12. Shutterbug99 says:

    Oh, do shut up Chelsea Handler!

  13. minx says:

    Ugh, this woman.

  14. Aiobhan says:

    Lol. Girl bye! Who is this “you guys” you are speaking of? I take no responsibility for this at all.

    That haggard racist responding to the divorce news was just as predictable as a sunrise or a sunset. She just cannot help herself at all because she is an attention seeking ass who cannot let anything go. And yes, I will put a little blame on Jennifer for not telling Chelsea to stop it and be firm about it.

    It is starting to look like Chelsea is going to be eating crow soon enough, though.

  15. Louise177 says:

    Kaiser, Don’t blame us. It’s Chelsea Handler. I’m surprised it took her this long to say something. She’s actually why people think Jennifer hasn’t moved on and is celebrating the divorce. Chelsea seems really invested in Angelina eventhough she didn’t even know Jennifer when she was married to Brad. I used to like her. On the early seasons of her show she used to bash Jennifer more than Angelina but it was routine joking. Ever since they became friends, Chelsea has gotten hateful and even racist against Angelina and the kids.

  16. lilacflowers says:

    So, if it is Angelina’s fault that he self-medicated, it would mean that it was her precious Jennifer’s fault that he cheated in his first marriage. See how that works, Chelsea?

    And 85 children speaking 15 different languages? Sure, blame the kids while demonstrating yourself to be a disgusting bigot.

    • SilverUnicorn says:

      This plus one million. Terribly offensive to the kids too, what awful human being she is!

      • pinetree13 says:

        Exactly. This comment PROVED to me she’s a bigot. So disgusting, I don’t understand why on earth she went there. Those poor kids don’t need some external person saying it’s partly their fault their parents divorced. UGH I JUST AM SO UPSET ABOUT THIS

    • CharlotteCharlotte says:

      If there is anybody who sees any appeal in CH, can they please speak up and explain what it is. Because she is heinous. Heinous.

      • Jwoolman says:

        She’s an insult comic and rags on everybody. I saw no maliciousness in what she said, it was just a comedy routine. I found Don Rickles far more grating but he was very popular when I was young. These comedians have a persona developed for their act, how they are in real life is quite different and Chelsea Handler is no exception. I doubt that she hates Jolie or the kids. She seems to have a good relationship with the kids in her family, she enjoys being an aunt. The routine that convinced people here that she’s a kid-hating bigot was from a college tour, college kids ate it up because it sounded so iconoclastic to them, so she kept using it on that specific tour. Many people apparently read the transcript rather than watching the video, and the written form came across very differently than the live performance with audience reaction. I used to watch her show on E! and don’t recall anything like that in the episodes I watched. She didn’t make a career out of Jolie-bashing.

        She wasn’t giving a serious commentary here, she was just making jokes about something currently in the news. It’s what she does. She has a very dead-pan delivery and she’s female, so she gets judged very differently than a male comedian saying the same thing with a more obviously joking delivery. Women are supposed to be nurturing, after all. The expectations are very different. Just ending a sentence with a definite downward tone rather than an upward questioning tone gets you accused of being too aggressive or too harsh if you’re a woman. Handler doesn’t do the upward tone.

        The joke fell flat with you because the situation is still raw, the changed perception of Pitt and the marriage is still a shock, and people worry about the kids. A lot of people don’t like any mention of the kids, although plenty of comedians do it with all celebrities who allow their children in the public eye. I can understand that discomfort and feel it myself, but she isn’t unusual or evil in doing it. She’s a comedian. She tells jokes. Some work, some don’t. You don’t have to like her style, but it’s unfair to treat her as though she were pontificating on Fox News. Humor is very individual. I don’t like a lot of comedians, including the beloved Bob Hope (always found him creepy, although I’m sure that comes from something about his delivery that bothers me and not because he was an evil person).

      • lucy says:

        Well stated, jwoolman. Fair and balanced. Thoughtful.

        Chelsea pushes buttons. Her joke about the kids and languages isn’t very smart or funny, but certainly does not found comments like “Handler crawled out of her demon lair”. I am disappointed that the authors of this site would stoop to such disrespect. The tone of Chelsea-bashing here is equivalent to a lynch mob.

      • lucy says:

        And sad Amy Schumer gets a pass for her lame one-dimensional man-hating material and unfunny casual sex grossout jokes? Eye roll!

      • Josephina says:

        If people are offended by what you say, then they are offended.

        I dare you present to me an insult, I am offended and I tell you your words hurt me, and then you repeat it again and tell me to get used to it.

    • Shannon1972 says:

      Agree SO MUCH!!! She needs to go away…now.

    • Abby_J says:

      She’s awful. Netflix really needs to separate themselves from her.

      Who are her fans anyway, and why do celebrities keep having anything to do with her? I mean, are there people who just love her? Does she have a fan base? I know she and Frank Grillo were friendly, but after he got burned on her Netflix show, I’m thinking maybe not so much anymore.

      I’m not a Jennifer Aniston fan at all, and never have been. If these two are actually friends, that makes me dislike her even more. That said, I’m not sure if we can blame her for what Handler says.

  17. KatM says:

    Why is she so obsessed with Angelina Jolie? It honestly borders on strange at this point. The fact that she gets paid to talk about this is truly pathetic. She is a disgusting human being.

  18. jeanpierre says:

    I hate Jolie too but what handler says is very stupid.

  19. EEV says:

    I seriously… I can’t. There are no words to begin to express how wrong this is. He has substance abuse issues, and it’s his wife’s fault? So it’s his wife’s fault that he also abused his children? *SMDH SO HARD* If she had two brain cells to rub together, she’d see just how damaging her mentality is. This is so wrong I want to rage scream.

  20. naomipaige says:

    Chelsea Handles is a repulsive P.O.S!!!! Her mouth should be taped shut, so we never have to hear another word out of her sewer mouth.

  21. Neelyo says:

    I did it! Granted I only invoked her name once.

    I am amazed it took her this long to mix together some profanity and racism into that special brew she calls comedy.

  22. Deanne says:

    So what exactly did Jennifer do wrong, to force Brad into self-medicating while he was with her? This isn’t new behaviour for him. Chelsea Handler is a bigoted, misogynist, untalented hag. Her Netflix show is unwatchable. You can tell a lot about people by who they’re friends with and this one doesn’t exactly give a ringing endorsement of JA’s character.

    • LittleTeaPot says:

      …then how do we explain Sandra Bullock?? Reese Witherspoon? Charlise Theron? Merely by association, they are trash as well? Handler is responsible for her own sh*t but perhaps has other redeeming qualities as a friend. Like doofus said up-thread…I wonder how close she & Jen are at this point. Haven’t seen them hanging out in quite a while. I think Handler stands on her own & her so-called friends are slowly but surely backing away.

      • notasugarhere says:

        I think less of all of them, Bullock especially. I think it is a case of all of them, again especially bullock, keeping an extremely tight reign on their image most of the time. All three of them have serious skeletons that they keep trying to shove back into the closet.

        Bullock really didn’t know she was married to a white supremacist, Nazi-sympathizer? Really? I suspect they stay close to Handler so they don’t get attacked, instead of womaning-up and getting away from such a despicable person.

      • Deanne says:

        Actually, I’m not a fan of any of them. Reece and Charlize both have reputaions for being rude, arrogant and entitled and Sandra was married to a guy who wore Arian Nation t-shirts and has been accused of racist behaviour. I don’t care if someone has other ‘redeeming qualities as a friend’, if someone is racist, I’m not giving them a pass.

  23. Debutante says:

    Well, she’s got a point !! I couldn’t put up with six children.
    I don’t know how the hell my parents did it. They had eight ! And one of them was me !
    AND they were no nannies.

      Your comment is sexist and insensitive. Did someone force him to have six kids? The effin guy was in his 40s when he became a father. He’s not even a young father. He’s was blaming his self medicating on boring Anniston during that mArriage now it’s the kids fault? Kids that he choose to adopt/ put into the world gets the blame? Apparently Middle aged men get all the excuses in the world for their own shortcomings. Smh.

      • FingerBinger says:

        The comment could be insensitive but how is it sexist? Debutante mentioned herself and her parents having 8 kids as well.

      • Jessie says:

        @ fingerbinger
        Could be insensitive? How about it is insensitive, to say you understand child abuse because there are so many of them.
        If you don’t think it’s sexist then look at how Madonna was villified for the rocco situation. Madonna was never accused of child abuse. She was to strict with schoolwork and took her kids on and also Middle Aged embarrassing mom trying to be down with the youth. That was her crime. I swear white males always get the benefit of the doubt in some people’s eyes. Depp/loche/pitt…

        And by the way we were 5 kids in my family. No abuse or parents driven to drinking.

      • FingerBinger says:

        @ Jessie Slow down. Debutante didn’t say child abuse was ok. You’re putting words in her mouth. Handler’s joke wasn’t about child abuse. It was about why Pitt drinks and smokes weed. I give everybody benefit of the doubt not only white males. These are allegations until they’re proven facts.

    • pinetree13 says:

      It’d actually be relatively easy to deal with six children when you have a TEAM of handlers, nannies, maids, cooks, etc. I find the hardest part of having two small children is trying to cook/do laundry while trying to watch them and stop them from maiming each other. If you didn’t have to cook, do your own laundry, had helpers to supervise…really you could handle 6 kids!
      At any rate, kids aren’t for everyone but he CHOSE to have those kids.

  24. Tourmaline says:

    Chelsea Handler is absolutely odious and Kaiser you said it perfectly: if this is Team Aniston, sign me up for Team Jolie.

    God forbid there are women in the world like Jolie who care about more than their next yoga session or next vacay to Mexico, their hair, or what to put on their piece of ezekiel toast.

  25. Ariel says:

    I watched her E show when it was first in sbc thought it was funny for awhile, but she became so mean spirited towards her staff on air and her jokes became so lazy and racist I quit watching.
    She is awful, and the fact that Aniston doesn’t tell her to shut up makes me think Aniston is awful too.
    Handler is just so nasty.

  26. grabbyhands says:

    Man, Aniston needs to muzzle this hateful little snake. I really hope she isn’t letting her do the dirty work.

    Like, what does it say about Chelsea Handler that she is still THIS angrily obsessed with Angelina Jolie? Nothing good. And then she doubles down on the lunacy by being a racist about the family diversity.

    I’m no AJ or BP fan (or even a JA fan) because I think they both acted like selfish assh*les when they got together, but I DO believe that she cares about her kids and I do believe that she probably is starting to draw away from the Hollywood spotlight to use her fame for better things. Only time will tell what the real deal is about why they split up.

  27. lem says:

    I don’t think it’s fair to impute Handler’s statements to Aniston. CAA doesn’t care b/c it gets Handler headlines and that’s why she says disgusting shit like this. Only Brad is responsible for his substance abuse problems so him blaming them on his “boring life” with Aniston before and now Handler blaming it on Jolie is bullshit in both situations. I think that Handler’s statement that it’s Jolie’s fault for his shortcoming speaks loudly re: what Handler really thinks of Aniston–that it was ultimately her fault for him leaving their marriage, and if I were Aniston, I would take offense to that.

    • lucy says:

      I so agree that it is unfair to impute Handler’s material to Aniston.

      I realize the Daily Show blurred the lines between news and comedy, facts and fiction, but it seems many here are stingy with their acceptance of freedom of speech and comedy. It’s not like Handler is writing a feature for the New York Times. Lighten up and put down your nooses. All this hateful negativity is harshing my mellow.

  28. hey-ya says:

    …basically the daily fail says the same stuff…only in a ton more words…chaotic household…kids with few boundaries…& angies 2 gal posse pulling down a million a year between them….I just hope all the kids have trust funds…

    • Gg says:

      And the daggers for Maddox?!?! I read that account and it’s making me think there is a lot of disfunction in that household and Angie may not be in her right mind (either) or is still “self medicating”.

  29. Amy Tennant says:

    Racist, misogynist, and the unforgivable sin in comedy– NOT FUNNY! Well. not to my taste, anyway. Ugh. And yet she had an audience of people whooping it up with her, so she has people who think like she does. That’s the scary thing.

    I don’t know if it’s 100% fair to blame JA for Chelsea. I know, it’s convenient to think of Chelsea as Aniston’s pet troll and mouthpiece. But they are two different people. I agree, I think Jen should have asked her to knock it off because it was making her look bad, but it’s not her responsibility to rein in Chelsea. Maybe Jen did ask her, and Chelsea ignored her. Or maybe it really is exactly what it looks like to us, and JA co-signs this trashy material. I’m just playing devil’s advocate and saying we don’t know for sure. Jen at least has “plausible deniability.”

    I doubt if Angelina has ever given 2 flips about anything Chelsea has ever said about her though

  30. PaschaP says:

    Sweeping in like a vulture, thinking those kids are ‘fair game’, very publicly kicking those kids when they’re down, AND blatantly othering the adopted children… utterly deplorable.

    The fact that the audience laughed their asses off, and Chelsea thought that cruel joke was acceptable speaks VOLUMES. The prevalence of casual racism in comedy truly creeps me out.

    • lem says:

      I can’t help but think that part of Brad’s outburst that spurred the divorce was possibly him “othering” the adopted children when in an argument with one of them. That makes me incredibly sad but I couldn’t help but think that’s a possibility.

      • B n A fn says:

        @lem, I don’t think so. I believe he loves all his children equally. If he snapped I don’t think it has anything to do with adopted or biological.

  31. SM says:

    As much as women like KimK sometimes strike me as hurting feminism by their constant focus on body image and being sexy for a living I believe Chelsea Handler is the biggest disgrase to women. I know you hate Angelina and kids in general. You are so independant by not getting married. Good for you. Just do not mind that I think you are not an independant feminist but the lowest scum there is.

  32. Rhiley says:

    I don’t watch her Netflix show and do not like her, but the deal with Netflix was very lucrative for her. She makes more than Stephen Colbert on the Late Show and she doesn’t have to put up with network BS.

  33. Amy McLaughlin says:

    Jennifer Aniston isn’t responsible for Chelsea (she’s a grown woman) but at a certain point, Aniston has to realize this looks bad for her right? Like at some point, shouldn’t she be like “please knock it off you’re making me look petty?”

    Angelina is also suppose to be directing a movie for Netflix – wonder if that will still happen or if she’ll take it elsewhere now.

    • B n A fn says:

      Jennifer is not responsible for what Chelsea says, but she never asked her to stop. I remember seeing Chelsea calling Angie the C word on her show and then Jennifer was the next guest to come out on stage and she was laughing and hugging Chelsea. Jennifer is the biggest hypocrite after what she did to Heidi B. Just saying.

      At least Brad stayed with Angelina for 12 years Jennifer could not keep him for seven. Hope she shows some class and not join her class less friend Chelsea by talking about Angelina.

      • Syd Barrett says:

        “At least Brad stayed with Angelina for 12 years Jennifer could not keep him for seven.”

        Keep him? Yikes.

  34. Marty says:

    She’s such a disgusting POS.

  35. Lily says:

    Sexist and racist. Lovely woman, really. I don’t know her, is she supposed to be a comedian ? Beacause that’s not even remotely funny. Somebody better call an exorcist !

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      She’s a friend of Aniston’s. If either of them had any class-which they don’t-they would just smile-smugly, of course-and keep their mouths shut.

  36. boredblond says:

    The comments aren’t funny..that’s the ‘crime’ for a comedian…suggesting that Jen A somehow edits or is asked to clear anything she sez? Now, that’s funny..really stupid, but funny.

  37. Jessie says:

    Despicable racist human, it’s one thing to make fun of angelina but she continuously mocks specifically the adopted kids.

  38. Chelsea, not cool. Compared to Angelina, her career looks like 6 pounds of S**T in a 4 pound bag. Not even going to go there about the comments about her kids.

  39. HK9 says:

    God I wish Chelsea would just be quiet.

  40. Merritt says:

    Brad self-medicated because of his own issues with himself.

  41. Almondjoy says:

    I would be fine if Chelsea Handler never spoke in public again. Nothing but hate spews from her mouth.

  42. Laura says:

    Handler is an idiot.

  43. B n A fn says:

    Didn’t Brad say he was sitting on his couch smoking weed and wasting his life when living with Jennifer. I guess he has been medicating himself long before he met Angie, Chelsea, idiot.

    I hope the headline about him being investigating by child services not true. I hope Angie set the record straight soon as to what caused her to file for divorce.

  44. Lucy says:

    She’s absolutely awful.

  45. kodakay says:

    LET IT GO!

  46. Jayna says:

    Attacking adoption of children from third world countries, and only three at that. What a pig.

    • nicegirl says:

      that is hilarious, chaine

    • EscapedConvent says:

      That’s a great comparison, Chaine. Absolutely true. I’m mystified as to how she got a show on Netflix. How she gets jobs, I’ll never understand. She’s hateful, loathsome and…..I could go on and on.

  49. nicegirl says:

    ” . . . lunatic”

    Takes one to know one??? maybe

  50. Kori says:

    I thought the headline was bad enough but then I read the article and ’85 kids speaking 15 different languages’. WTF? Other people have commented on it so I’ll just add ‘I agree’ to what’s been said. But I was really shocked (though I shouldn’t have been) when I read that part. Here you have kids who have supposedly witnessed their father get trashed and then were verbally and physically abused. They’re not traumatized enough but then the news comes that their parents are also splitting up–most likely because of said incident which can not only add to the trauma in and of itself but then you can potentially add in possible guilt feelings (if I hadn’t gotten Dad made maybe this wouldn’t have happened and then they’d still be together). So good going–pile on MINOR children undergoing serious trauma and possible contribute to a destructive narrative that something THEY are in any way to blame for what happened. It’s a good thing CH apparently has no desire to have children because she obviously has no concern but rather contempt for them. Oh–and Brad was (admittedly) ‘self-medicating’ back when he was married to JA–so according to CH’s narrative, what does that say about Jen?

  51. msd says:

    If Aniston wanted to distance herself from this she very easily – all it takes is some ‘sources’ saying they aren’t close friends. Or she could privately say back off. The fact that she never does is telling. She approves. She likes her friend saying things she could never say herself.

  52. Evil Queen says:

    The only funny thing she ever wrote was the title of her first book.
    The book itself sucked

    • adastraperaspera says:

      I wanted to like her book, and at first was thrilled to have a new “loud mouth, out there” female comic on the scene. But I don’t find her jokes funny. I wish a comic like Elvira Kurt could have gotten this kind of exposure instead.

      I believe Handler got lift in the biz from her four year relationship with Ted Harbert, Chair of NBC. I think this made her untouchable. I hate saying that a woman got to where she is that way, but it’s pretty well documented.

  53. molly says:

    Chelsea handler is the lunatic. I thought she was bad but wendy williams was worse. She is another vile woman.

  54. KiddVicious says:

    I’ve always thought there was something between Handler and Jolie that had nothing to do with Jennifer. That’s why there’s no hate for Brad. Her continual hatred of Angelina after all of these years is more than “this woman stole my friends husband” type of hate. And I would love to know what happened.

    • MarthaB. says:

      Nothing, they never ever met (Chelsea said that herself) and I bet Angelina doesn’t even know she exist.

    • Jwoolman says:

      She doesn’t spend much time on Jolie, it just seemed that way when she had a Jolie-Pitt routine as part of a college tour one year. So of course it was repeated at every stop, like all the other routines that college students liked.

      Her job on the E! show was to go after celebrities as outrageously as possible when they hit the news. And that’s what she did. I hardly ever heard her mention Jolie on that show. It looks as though celebrities in the news is also a focus on the Netflix show, the image shown here shows Chelsea at a desk with a CNN clip in the background. It’s called topical humor and sometimes Jolie is topical.

      I think people here think Handler obsesses with Jolie because anything she says about Jolie is picked up here or other places they frequent, and they don’t actually watch her show to see how many other people she’s giving the same treatment. Life is short, so it’s fine to avoid watching comedians you don’t find funny. I think she’s hit and miss myself, she can be very funny but isn’t someone who always hits the mark. I don’t have Netflix so I haven’t seen her new show. I just remember her from Girls Behaving Badly and Chelsea Lately. Maybe she was on something about bridezillas, not sure. But she’s just a comedian, and the persona she shows when doing her act is not the real person. It never really is. The extreme antipathy to Handler as a person on this site seems misdirected to me. I’ve never seen that happen with the insult comics of my youth, and they were just as sharp-tongued. From what I do know about her personal life, she’s very different from her act. And no, I don’t believe she slept her way to the top. Tired of hearing that.

      I think the E! show just ran its course and Handler got tired of it. They were running out of ideas. She was in a serious skiing accident and I always wondered if she’s had ongoing pain issues from that, since it seemed to me that she relied more and more on other comedians to carry the show after that. But maybe she just got bored. The panels were usually very good and she gave a lot of exposure to other comedians, especially the writers. I don’t think she’s a good interviewer, so I often taped the show and fast-forwarded through that part.

      • lucy says:

        Again, jwoolman, you’ve stated this so impressively and thoughtfully.

        I think people are too precious about Jolie and take humor (or comments) about her waaaaay too seriously. Heck, I think Jolie takes herself (and her kids) way too seriously (but, as I do not know her, my opinion is based on her observable public image).

        I’m already tired of hearing about the divorce, and Aniston has always been a snooze, and I appreciate Handler’s irreverence.

      • Josephina says:

        Your girl has gone on record to to call Angie “evil, b#tch or whore” right before introducing Aniston as her guest on the show. And then Aniston comes walking out, seconds later smiling waving to the audience. This has happended at least TWICE on her show.

        Since then she has been on interview, ie not in a comdey skit, saying that she does not like Angie, Brad is there only for the kids, Angie is not a girl’s girl and cannot be trusted. These comments have been made at different times and in non-comedic settings- interviews.

        So no, This is not something that is read simply for comedic timing. She is vying for her BFF Aniston to be resepcted and it reveals Aniston as a woman still irked by the way her ex-husband appears to be more devoted to another woman other than her,

        Trust me, many see Aniston as a woman of the past for Brad, just like Gwynneth, Juliet, and Robin. But it personally burns Chelsea that Brad had children, and a lot of them, with Angelina. Brad is a Dad and into his children. Chelsea would rather him be single anging out and available.

  55. HeyThere! says:

    How rude and dumb. Why does she care so much?? You can be friends with Jen without being his way. Oh yeah, she needs fame and to stay relevant. Gag me!

  56. Ruyana says:

    Chelsea Handler is disgusting. It has nothing to do with her, nobody stole her cookies, so she should just shut up. She’s an unfunny has-been struggling for relevance.

  57. Tartine says:

    Oh how I wish Chelsea Handler and I were better strangers.

  58. JRenee says:

    What a vile statement!

  59. Jusayin says:

    Just ignore her. If you ignore her maybe she’ll go away. She’s the celeb Ann Coulter equivalent to me.

  60. Patty says:

    The fact that she is buddies with JA makes me think in some level that maybe JA is still rehashing this with her girlfriends. They all need to let it go.

  61. Rebecca says:

    Her ratings on her Netflix show are dismal and her career is almost over. She always falls back on insulting Angelina Jolie to get attention and ratings. A bonus for her is that maybe her Hollywood friend Jennifer Aniston will take notice and like her again.

  62. Frosty says:

    #TeamNobody here. I don’t know what Handler’s problem with Jolie is, but it seems to me she’s acting under own agency. I don’t think she’s some Aniston sock puppet.

  63. Paisley says:

    I hope she’s feeling shame and embarrassment right. Absolutely she has turned out to be the f****** lunatic.

  64. Stacy says:

    She says “speaking 15 different languages” like it is a bad thing. I wish I grew up in a home where 2 or 3 languages were spoken, must less 15. I do hope those kids know different languages.

  65. Antigone says:

    Chelsea is vile and attention seeking-she knew making those statements would get her media attention and possibly draw more viewers to get show out of curiosity.

    I don’t think it’s fair to hold JA responsible. How do we know they are still friends or that JA hasn’t told to her STFU? Also, I have friends who say and do shit I disagree with-I’m not responsible for their behavior or actions-you can tell people you disagree with them, etc but ultimately people will do/say what they want to.

  66. Bread and Circuses says:

    As usual, I am astounded Chelsea has so little self-awareness that she repeatedly insults a towering humanitarian while she herself if famous mostly for gargling vodka, being racist, and fucking a married man to buy herself a career.

  67. paranormalgirl says:

    I cannot tolerate this woman. She is an awful human being.

  68. Kate says:

    Chelsea Handler is the f***ing lunatic!

  69. Deedee says:

    Aniston needs a better class of friends or at least put a muzzle on this one.

  70. MoochieMom says:

    Not reading article or comments. Everyone who knows her must self-medicate because she just no.

  71. Nikki says:

    The sexism AND misogyny of her remark (it’s the wan who drove them to be abusive), as well as the cruelly timed hatred, blow my mind. What an AWFUL statement!!!!

  72. Jeanette says:

    I watched this last night. As a JA fan, I was so embarrased for her. She could not have ok’d that. It makes them both look like asses.

    CH has no sense of sensitivity in her, and maybe Jennifer’s hate for them makes her a little short in the feelings department for them, but she is savvy enough to realize that it could really backfire.

  73. Sparkly says:

    So she may *actually* be the most disgusting woman on earth. Congrats, CH, you won at something.

    “…at some point you would have thought CAA (Chelsea’s agency) or Jennifer Aniston (Chelsea’s friend) would have told Chelsea to just give it a rest. The fact that Handler is still talking means, to me, that she has Aniston’s blessing.”

    MTE. If I had a friend who ran her mouth like this one, I’d have shut it down from the start, even if I was hurting, if only to seem like a decent person. The fact that this continues, as does their friendship, speaks volumes.

  74. serena says:

    She’s the nasty one. Anyway wasn’t Pitt the one suggesting he was doing drugs when he was with Jen? So what does Chelsea has not say about that? I bet nothing.

    • Josephina says:

      That is EXACTLY why she could not wait to say something about self-medicating.

      Blogs have said that Pitt was self-medicating with drugs to get thorugh his marriage with Jennifer. (Again, we have proof that Aniston does read these sites and allows the comments to affect her– HER FAULT.)

      Again, any opportunity for revenge against Angie as appearing the better woman … Aniston is STILL comparing herself to Jolie,, which means she is still NOT over the hurt/embarassment/defeat she feels.

      Again, forgivenes is not about the other person getting off easy: it is about freeing/releasing you from the pain, allowing you to move in a direction unrelated to your past. You would have to have learned some level of wisdom is order to understand that. Aniton STILL is not on that page.

      • lucy says:

        Ha! I didn’t realize that JA’s psychiatrist (@Josephina) read celebitchy and were at liberty to share JA’s personal feelings with us.

  75. Fatima says:

    She’s such a juvenile, petty, and distasteful bitch. She has no shame.

  76. Mrs. Darcy says:

    While I think she is low and gross for going lowest common denominator as usual (sounding racist towards immigrant children is a really d**k move in the current climate), I don’t get why people think Jennifer Aniston sanctions this. And I also think that like with Amy Schumer, people forget that Chelsea is a comedienne with a persona. Amy was on a talk show in the U.K. last week and people unfamiliar with her took to Twitter to say how unfunny and rude she was, oblivious to the fact that she is rude and deadpan on purpose, for comedy. Of course she is not everyone’s taste, but there were genuinely a lot of people thinking she was just an obnoxious person. And that’s ok for a man, but not a woman, it would seem, still. Chelsea’s “real” personality I don’t know, but her modus operandi has always been to shock and horrify, it’s her schtick.

    I did read a couple of her books, and she alternates between “Chelsea the comedienne” with grandiose and vulgar tales, and yes sometimes she is funny, but sometimes she strips that away and sounds like a human. I’m not surprised she let loose on Angelina, again, but as a woman the woman hating narrative is getting tired, Brad obviously had a big part to play in the split and if it comes out he did accidentally expose the kids to drugs or whatever else she might actually feel like a jerk, who knows.

  77. sara says:

    Chelsea Handler is despicable. Handler always seems like she’s Aniston’s personal puppet. JA does not have the balls to talk crap, so she gets her minion Chandler to do it for her. To me JA and CH are just couple of grown up bitter mean girls.

  78. Keaton says:

    I’ve never found her funny and this does nothing to change my mind.
    I hope Aniston didn’t sanction this. :/ I’m an Angelina fan more than an Aniston but I’ve never been an Aniston hater. This would definitely make me think less of her :/

  79. princessdope says:

    i was just made aware she had a newish show on netflix… i had no clue people were still interested in the opinions of a middle aged bitter hag that was kind of funny 8 years ago

  80. Sunshine Gold says:

    This is embarrassingly ignorant. Of all the things you could call out Brad & Angelina for, adopting kids from different countries is not one. She’s so nasty and sad.

  81. Pam says:

    She’s hilarious, I like her. I miss the old E show though, this new show on Netflix is really bad especially with the laugh tracks

  82. I'm With The Band says:

    C U Next Tuesday, Chelsea.

  83. Purple Nymphe says:

    I don’t really get how Aniston is supposed to control what Chelsea says about AJ. Chelsea is a grown woman with a mouth of her own that fires off with no self control. This is like the time Aniston got blamed for not telling Cox to stop with the fillers. They are all grown women. We all have friends who will do something/things we disagree with and let them know, but just cause you tell’em so doesn’t mean they’ll change for you. That you think less of Aniston because of Chelsea is just ridiculous. Let Chelsea bear the weight of her own stupidity.

    • Josephina says:

      You are not that blind. Once Aniston/Handler became friends in 2008 and repped by the same CAA Agency, Handler stopped commenting on Aniston’s marriage/divorce. A new, trashier focus targeted Brad’s wife and family, always being careful not to talk about Brad. And yet you think the change in direction was organic?

      Handler is not innocent and neither is Aniston. Poor thing. The neurosis is real.

  84. Nibbi says:

    she just seems like a wretched human being. i tried to watch one of her stand-up shows a while back and it wasn’t funny at all, left an ick taste in my mouth. besides, if someone has a substance problem to the point that it’s breaking up their family/ upsetting children there is no WAY you can justifiably blame the other person in the couple for “causing” the problem to happen ie justifying such substance issues. at the end of the day, everyone is responsible for their own behavior and choices, addict or not, married to whatever other person or not. disgusting.

  85. Sara says:

    I don’t care for Chelsey and actually like both Aniston and Jolie. But I will say after everything that has came out since the news of the divorce broke, I can see how much of a farce their relationship just may have been. Since Brad seems to be the one that lost control, I think he may be the bigger problem of the two. We have always wanted to demonize Jolie but could it be that Brad is the one that seduced her into having a certain kind of life that she dreamed of and committed to? This is totally beyond what I would have thought when news first broke. I bewildered by it all!
