Chelsea Handler Bags Angelina Jolie

Chelsea Hander unleashed an expletive-ridden verbal tirade against Angelina Jolie over the weekend. In a stand-up routine performed in Newark, NJ. Handler called Jolie a “homewrecker.” She also said, “She [Jolie] can rescue as many babies from as many countries as she wants to. I don't f**king believe you ... she gives interviews, 'I don't have a lot of female friends.' Cause you're a f**king c**t ... you're a f**king b***h.” Perhaps Handler was standing up for her new gal-pal Jennifer Aniston. Aniston and Handler have recently become BFFs and were photographed vacationing together over the Thanksgiving weekend. They are also known to go on “vodka-fueled manhunts together.” Whatever the reason, Jolie probably won’t be appearing on Handler’s show anytime soon. [Hollywood Life]

What Not To Do on a First Date with Reese Witherspoon

If you’re ever lucky enough to get a date with Reese Witherspoon, keep your mouth shut about her use of grammar. For Reese, correcting her word choice on a first date is a deal breaker. The 34-year-old actress told People magazine, “I had someone correct my grammar on a blind date once, and I knew within the first 10 minutes that the date was over.” The Academy Award winner adds, “I don't even remember what I said – I probably said 'ain't.' – [Just] don't correct my grammar. I'm from Tennessee. I probably say everything wrong.” Witherspoon is currently dating agent Jim Toth, who obviously doesn’t care about grammar. [People]

President Barack and first lady Michelle Obama were just a few of the huge names on hand to salute Oprah Winfrey, Paul McCartney, Merle Haggard, composer Jerry Herman and dancer Bill T. Jones today at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C. Julia Roberts, John Travolta and Barbara Walters each offered personal reflections of their relationships with Winfrey. "Simply put, she is the best interviewer ever," Walters said. "No one comes close - not even me. And those of you know me know how painful it was for me to say that." Mr. McCartney had his famous friends Gwen Stefani, Dave Grohl, Steven Tyler, Norah Jones and James Taylor all perform a number of classic Beatles tunes. I’m still having a hard time believing that Oprah is ‘the best interviewer ever.’ [Chicago Tribune]

NFL’s Most Heavily-Fined Team Nominated for UN Peace Award…Seriously

The Pittsburgh Steelers may best be known for hurting people and defending their quarterback amidst rape allegations, but when they’re not busy securing private council or protesting new rules, apparently they’re setting a great example for the community. In fact, according to a new nomination they may do it better than anyone else in the league. Pittsburghlive reports that “The Steelers and wide receiver Hines Ward have been nominated in the professional sports team and professional athlete categories for the inaugural United Nations NGO Positive Peace Awards in recognition of their positive contributions to world peace.” Yes, you read that correctly. Their contributions to world peace. [Pittsburgh Live]

Peyton Manning Doing His Best to Eliminate the Colts from Playoff Contention

It’s not very often that Peyton Manning receives anything less than unadulterated support from the football community. Then again, it’s not very often that he throws four interceptions in a crucial Week 13 game. The Indianapolis Star’s pessimism department notes that “going into this game, another loss would be most difficult for Colts fans to stomach. repeating the obvious, these Colts are in trouble. And it’s not going to get fixed this season. Not really. Not in my opinion.” The reporter then spent 13 minutes at the lunch trucks telling interns that Santa Clause doesn’t exist. [Indy Star]
