Whitney Cummings Tells Jay Leno About the Time She Stole Chelsea Handler’s Bentley

One of my guiltiest pleasures is learning about Hollywood cliques — who is hanging out with whom, which TV casts get brunch every week, figuring out who is the aughts’ equivalent of The Coreys. Few things have devastated me as much as when I found out that MythBusters‘ Adam and Jamie weren’t best friends in real life. What can I say? You can claim that the girl graduated high school but you can’t make her stop obsessing over where everyone sits.
Now that you know this incredibly embarrassing detail about me, it should come as no surprise that I am deeply invested in Whitney Cummings and Chelsea Handler’s friendship. I love hearing about the comedians’ drunken escapades, trips to Aspen, and naked tweets; I love that these two hilarious, successful women are entirely supportive of each other, even briefly sharing late-night space on E!. During her appearance on The Tonight Show, Cummings added another layer to my Chelsney mythology: evidently Handler has been leaving her Bentley in Cummings’ cul-de-sac. No, that’s not a euphemism, and yes, Chelsea Handler owns a Bentley; multiples even, since she can just abandon one in front of someone else’s house. Anyway, frustrated by her blocked driveway, Cummings decided to take action. Unconventional action, but action nonetheless. …She put her bare butt on the car, guys. Her butt — Chelsea Handler’s Bentley. Friendship is a beautiful thing, isn’t it?
