Chelsea Handler Is Building Her Own "Clique of Power Women"

And you're not invited.

It's official: Hollywood is an amplified version of the popular group in high school. Their ringleader is late-night host Chelsea Handler (opens in new tab), who is best friends with all of your favorite actresses. Name a celebrity you wish you could be friends with, and she probably hung out with them yesterday.

She's "setting up a clique of power women," according to Us Weekly (opens in new tab), and it's plain to see. She threw a party for Sandra Bullock (opens in new tab)'s 50th birthday recently, alongside comedian Whitney Cummings. Handler is also BFFs with Reese Witherspoon (opens in new tab) and Jennifer Aniston (opens in new tab). And of course, Bullock and Aniston are new friends after meeting at Gwyneth Paltrow (opens in new tab)'s dinner party.

Instagram holds all the proof you need that she hangs out with every single one of your dream friends. Try to spot stars like Paltrow, Gwen Stefani (opens in new tab)Nicole Richie (opens in new tab), Stella McCartney and Naomi Watts.

Handler insists she's not strategically hanging out with stars. After all, her job is to make fun of them on Chelsea Lately. "It's funny how you end up being friends with all these people," she told USA Today (opens in new tab). "I don't know how it happened."

Want to form your own A-list clique? Just be a beautiful, successful, hilarious talk-show host who meets the rich and famous for a living. That's not hard, right?
