Jennifer Aniston brought a very special guest, her 15-year-old dog, Norman, along to the Chelsea Lately show. The famous pup was dressed up for the occasion and has also made appearances in Elle and Vogue and on Oprah! Plus, get a sneak peek at Jennifer's I'm a Huge Fan — see her meet our winner! — and watch the whole three-part series next week ahead of the release of Just Go With It.
Jennifer Aniston had the sun in her eyes yesterday as she left Chelsea Handler's studios in LA. The girls got together so Jennifer could pre-record an interview for Chelsea Lately ahead of Just Go With It's release on Feb. 11. Chelsea and Jennifer have grown to be good friends through their common agent, Kevin Huvane, and the ladies even spent last Thanksgiving together on a bikini-filled Cabo vacation. Allure cover girl Jennifer is now in the midst of promoting her new comedy, in which she stars alongside Brooklyn Decker and Minka Kelly. Both starlets seem to have loved working with Jen — Brooklyn recently spoke about how inspiring it was to film with her, while Minka told us at Sunday's premiere of The Roommate that the Friends alum was always so nice on set. Hopefully Jen's next movie fares better than The Bounty Hunter, after that project with Gerard Butler earned two nominations at this year's Razzies.
In somewhat of a puff piece, the Sunday's New York Times asks what makes the delightfully offensive Chelsea Handler resonate with women and men? With a late-night show on E!, Chelsea Lately, that has a rabid though modest viewership of 900,000 per night and three best-selling books, she's obviously doing something right.
It's easy to attribute her success to being a woman in the male-dominated world of late-night TV, but Robert Morton, a former producer of Late Night With David Letterman, floats another, less patronizing, theory. “Chelsea represents what the culture demands of a successful talk-show host: you have to bare it all," he says. "You know about her friends, you know about her sex life.”
I believe that's what people under 35 call "oversharing." And while she probably is sharing just the right amount of too much for today's milieu, we know oversharing alone doesn't get anyone very far for very long. Maybe she's just funny and found an opportunity (the president of Comcast Entertainment, who later became her boyfriend, saw her on Girls Behaving Badly and told his staff to bring her to him), took it, and did something with it.
Her schedule is now so full with putting on a daily show, talking to the press (check out our Chelsea Handler interview), going on comedy and book tours, and — somewhere in there — writing those books that the question is shifting from "how is she successful?" to "how could she not be?"
"TrèsSugar: Describe your ideal man.
Chelsea Handler: Someone who gets the joke.
TrèsSugar: Do you think you’ll ever find him?
Chelsea Handler: Probably not."
Comedian, writer, talk show host — triple threat Chelsea Handler does it all. The host of Chelsea Lately on E! Entertainment agreed to answer our burning questions on everything from whether or not she’s a feminist to what her weirdest wedding moment was.

Celebrity Rehab, like A&E's Intervention, is as addictive as any drug out there. I've joked many times that someone's going to have to stage an intervention on my drug-themed reality television viewing habits. If I were a real drug addict, though, I'd pause before I entered a facility that used Gary Busey as an inspirational drug counselor. And yet the madman philosopher with the jacked up face and mesmerizingly solid teeth was chosen by silver-haired fox Dr. Drew for this season's Celebrity Rehab. (Tawny Kitaen didn't seem so amused when his creepy gaze ranged all over her body as he tried to give her "inspiration.") Here is Chelsea Handler, author of Are You There Vodka? It's Me Chelsea voicing more skepticism. Let's play an SAT game, shall we? Gary Busey: Drug Counselor as __ is to __. . .
These female stand up comedians sure have a lot to say about celebs! I've heard mixed reviews about Chelsea's new show "Chelsea Lately," but this promo is hilarious. In it, Chelsea and her pals have a theory for why Maddox Jolie-Pitt always looks so pissed off...
