"They were talking about me on 'The View,' talking about me and my Angelina Jolie tirade. Can I just say that I've been making fun of Angelina Jolie since she made out with her brother? If I've learned nothing from this, it's to write new jokes."
-Late night talk show host, stand-up comedienne and 2010 MTV Video Music Awards host Chelsea Handler, addressing her newsworthy rant that made her a topic of conversation on "The View" on Monday morning (December 6). At a stand-up performance over the weekend, Handler lit into Jolie, referring to her as a "f---ing b----" and a "f---ing homewrecker" for "stealing someone's husband." Handler is good friends with Jennifer Aniston (the pair recently went on vacation together in Cabo over Thanksgiving) and was apparently calling out Jolie for seducing Brad Pitt away from then-wife Aniston back in 2005 because "he's hot and she has crazy sex and she cuts herself."
Handler addressed the issue on her show on Monday night, dismissing the whole scenario with a reference to Jolie's unusual public kiss she shared with her brother James Haven at the 2000 Oscar ceremony (where Jolie won the award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in "Girl, Interrupted"). It's not the first time she has gone after Jolie — she previously took shots at the actress in her 2008 book "Are You There, Vodka? It's Me Chelsea." As she proved during her hosting stint at the VMAs, Handler is no stranger to controversy and is in fact comfortable taking down famous people.
