Chelsea Handler may not be friends with Jennifer Aniston any longer, but is there still bad blood between her and Angelina Jolie?

On Thursday's Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, the comedian joined Melissa Etheridge onstage to talk about their lives and answer a series of questions. But in the end, the Jolie and Brad Pitt divorce scandal turned into their central topic of discussion. readers know Handler, 44, spent years making nasty jokes about the ex-couple’s controversial romance and rocky marriage. And while she’s ready to throw in the towel in that respect, she’s suggested the bad vibes between her and Jolie, 43, may have not yet disappeared.

During the talk, Etheridge, 57, was asked about a song she performed on a previous episode of the show that was thought to be about Jolie's divorce from Pitt, 55.

The songwriter said she didn’t actually get much backlash for the show, though the ambiance was “really tense there for, like, a day” and she did get some fan threats.

Hearing this, Handler busted in.

"I did actually, I heard from both of them,” she said. “I heard from Angelina Jolie and she was like, 'You f**king b**ch.' And I'm like, 'It's not me, it's Melissa Etheridge.’”

Both Etheridge and Handler have been open about their dislike of Jolie. The singer said she stopped speaking to the actor altogether when he married his Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star.

“This is like a meeting of the Angelina Jolie fan club,” Andy Cohen joked during the discussion.

Handler’s denied that her loyalty to longtime friend Aniston, 50, ever played a part in how she acted towards Jolie.

In 2013, she went on WWHL to say that her animosity towards Jolie “has nothing to do with Jennifer." She explained: "As a woman, I know when you see somebody walking across the room that's a bad girl. I just don't like Angelina Jolie. I don't think she's a girl's girl. I like girl's girls!"

In 2010, she also bashed the mother-of-six during a stand-up show in Newark.

"Angelina's a homewrecker, she is," she said at the time, speaking of the rumors that Jolie hooked up with Pitt while he was still married to Aniston. "She can rescue as many babies from as many countries as she wants to, I don't f**king believe you."

Handler and Aniston’s friendship eventually fell through, but that never stopped Handler from publicly bashing Jolie.

Radar readers recall that back in 2017, Handler joked about what she would do if she were stuck in an elevator with her nemesis.

"I would just look up. Exactly what people do when they're in elevators. You know what you do when you just fake look at the numbers because you don't want to make eye contact," she told the WWHL audience at the time. "That would be exactly the elevator ride. Then I'd go, 'Heyyy,' as I walked out."

She also joked about them on her Netflix show, Chelsea.

“Brad and Angelina always said they wouldn't get married until everyone could get married," Handler said. "And I always said I wouldn't get married until they got divorced. So I'm officially accepting proposals! I'm ready!"

Speaking to Cohen, 50, the comedian admitted she regrets making such scathing remarks about the Maleficent actress.

“You know what, I'm upset that I was so upset with Angelina Jolie,” Handler said. “I realize, she's just trying to do her best too.”

She joked that she’s “obviously I'm not going to hang out” with Jolie, but she has “more sympathy and empathy for people that are like, 'She's really a mom and a wife and whatever she is. I'm not sure but good luck to her.'"
