Jennifer Tells Chatty Chelsea to Zip It About Angelina
By Rob Shuter Posted Dec 8th 2010 07:43AM
Just hours after I clued you in on Jennifer Aniston's new best friend, Chelsea Handler, going on a particularly nasty and graphic rant about Angelina Jolie, calling the mother of six a "f****ing b***h" and a "c**t," Chelsea addressed the situation on her E! show, 'Chelsea Lately,' making it clear Jennifer had nothing to do with her pointed attack.
"I've been making fun of Angelina Jolie since she made out with her brother," Chelsea laughed. "If I've learned nothing from this, it's to write some new jokes." Sources tell me Jennifer would agree, except she doesn't think this is a laughing matter and has told her feisty friend to give it a rest.
"Jen has gone out of her way to keep her private feelings about that woman who stole her husband private and has always asked her friends to do the same," an insider tells me. "She is furious with Chelsea for bringing the whole situation back to life again and landing her on the cover of a weekly magazine tomorrow with a Brad headline."
Sources tell me Jen hasn't felt this betrayed since John Mayer held a "press conference" to announce he was breaking up with her. Yeah, that was pretty bad.
The notoriously private actress has kept her inner circle close. Two of the newer additions to that exclusive club -- John and Chelsea -- have both gone and blown it.
"Jen doesn't just let these sort of people in her life," a friend of the actress tells me. "She hates drama or unnecessary attention and certainly doesn't want to ever see her face on a tabloid again with a headline about Angie or Brad."
I'm told Jen wants badly to believe Chelsea didn't revive her Angelina-skewering jokes now that the two are good friends.
"Even so," the friend admits, "she's happy Chelsea made it clear her rant had nothing to do with her and wishes she'd just keep her big mouth shut in the future."
