When Chelsea Handler shows up on the cover of a women's magazine -- as she is on the May cover of More, the magazine for women over age 40 -- you know you're not going to get your run of the mill "I'm feeling better than ever about myself" kind of standard pat celebrity interview. She drops a number of barbs in this one, most notably, a few negative words about Angelina Jolie. Given Chelsea's friendship with Jennifer Aniston, this isn't earth shattering -- but the fact that she never gives up her tirade about Jolie is pretty amazing. She seems to be in it for the long haul.
She calls Jolie "the opposite of a girl's girl. You just know as a woman when you see another woman if that's a woman you can trust. She doesn't strike me as someone I would have a close friendship with."
On Chelsea's famed drinking and vodka consumption: "I don't drink as much as I should -- or as much as people think I do. It's more for diet than the actual drinking thing."
On her relationship with famed Chateau Marmont and The Standard Hotelier Andre Balasz: "We just got back together literally yesterday. We had dated for nine months, a long distance relationship with all the stresses and traveling and running around. Balasz came to me and said, 'I think we have to try to make this work again.' And I agreed because we're madly in love."
On Whitney Houston: "Well, that's an issue about years and years of abuse. I don't ever want to abuse something so much that I'm forced to give it up. And that's why I'm only going to have seven margaritas after this interview."
Her Dirty Secret -- She's a Bookworm: "Right now I'm reading Catherine the Great. I may not be the smartest person in the room, but I am the quickest."
