Considering how easily she could have just blamed it on the vodka, we’re impressed by how committed Chelsea Handler is to her recent Angelina Jolie bashing.

After calling Jolie a homewrecker — not to mention a four-letter word that we can’t figure out how to politely hint at — during a stand-up show over the weekend, Handler defended herself on Monday night’s episode of “Chelsea Lately.” “I’ve been making fun of Angelina Jolie since she made out with her brother,” she claimed, lest anyone think she was just sticking up for pal Jennifer Aniston.

Like we said, impressed. A little terrified, but impressed.

Kevin Smith didn’t get on another plane, but this time, it wasn’t because of his weight. Seems the filmmaker and friends didn’t hear their boarding call: “Well, without calling anybody a liar, it’s just REALLY hard to believe that p.a. call was actually made,” he wrote on his website.
We’re guessing it had something to do with the airport bar and/or a five-pound bag Reese's Pieces.
