Chelsea Lately: Chelsea Handler Proud of Pride Parade and Jennifer Aniston
Comedienne Chelsea Handler had a lot on her plate over the weekend, and she hasn't regretted a single minute of it.  The host of Chelsea Lately made headlines when she appeared at the 39th annual Pride Parade, held at Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood.   She was also around to hand the trophy to actress Jennifer Aniston during the Women in Film Awards.

Last Friday night, Chelsea Handler presented the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film to 40-year-old movie star Jennifer Aniston.  The event was held at Culver City in California, and was hosted by Handler herself.

"You have increased the visibility of women in film, and we thank you for that," Handler told Jennifer Aniston.  "You've recently decreased the visibility of John Mayer, so we thank you for that."

According to, the audience erupted in laughter and even Jennifer Aniston couldn't help herself.  She continued to joke about her own relationship and said, "If anyone has a movie called Everlasting Love With an Adult Stable Man, that would be great!  I'm at table six, and my agents are at table 12."

As for Chelsea Handler, she was spotted on another event that had quite a turnout.  Around 400,000 people flocked the streets for the 39th annual Pride Parade celebrating the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities.

Beginning at Crescent Heights Boulevard and heading west to Robertson Boulevard, the parade had everything from floats to bands and advocacy groups.  It also boasted of the presence of Chelsea Lately's own Chelsea Handler.

She and her sidekick Chuy Bravo became grand marshals for the event.  Meanwhile, the community grand marshal for the Pride Parade was Organizations United Together West.  It's a coalition of organizations representing the communities they serve and effectively support on a grassroots level.

The organizers went on to claim that they chose the talk show host for that position, due to her visible and vocal support of equality.  Chelsea Handler was more than happy to comply, joining the cause with a thousand others to fight for LGBT rights.
