At the Elle magazine’s 20th Annual Women in Hollywood Awards on Monday night the Chelsea Lately host introduced her Oscar winning friend with a series of raunchy jokes about her drunk arrest and grooming habits.
“Personally, as a true friend, my favorite project of hers was an overlooked short film that she made earlier this year,” Chelsea, who starred in a homemade sex tape, joked about Reese’s arrest in Atlanta while her husband was being arrested for DUI.
“She plays a very inebriated housewife defending her inebriated husband.”
The humiliating incident was caught by the police officer’s dash cam video and and Reese mocked the cops, asking “Do you know my name?”
Jim Toth’s wife laughed at the joke and then Chelsea got dirty when joking about her fame-making role as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde.
“I’ve seen her naked and I can tell you, she was miscast,” Chelsea said.
“A more appropriate title would have been Legally Bald.”
Laughingly accepting her award, Reese seemed slightly embarrassed by her friend’s zingers.
“I don’t know if I should thank you for that. Jesus!” she said as she took the stage.
