The comedian had some fun at the singer’s expense when she appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” Tuesday and was asked to weigh in on Swift’s puzzlingly harsh criticism of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey for making a tame joke about the country crooner’s love life at the Golden Globes. Swift had repeated a quote she said she heard from Katie Couric, snipping, “There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women.”
“I think that was a bold statement, but I'm not on anyone's side because I just don't care enough," the “Chelsea Lately” host told Bravo’s Andy Cohen. "I like that [Taylor's] being that vociferous about something that she thinks they were out to get her. They were clearly making a joke just about her demeanor, which is embarrassing. I mean, she's just dated so many men.”

“My theory about Taylor Swift is that she's a virgin,” Handler, 38, continued. “That everyone breaks up with her because they date her for two weeks and she's like, ‘I'm not gonna do it.’ And they're like, ‘Oh, well, forget it. Then I don't want to date you.' Every guy thinks they're going to devirginize her and they're not.”
She added, “She's never going to get devirginized, ever, ever, ever, ever.”
Swift, 23, can rest a little easier knowing she wasn’t the only one who Handler took aim at. The funny gal, who is pals with Jennifer Aniston, also bashed Angelina Jolie, as she is wont to do, calling her a “demon.” (She previously called her a “f**king c**t", so it seems Handler is softening up.)
Swift’s interview with Vanity Fair made big buzz earlier this week. In addition to her harsh words about the widely-liked Poehler and Fey, she talked about Styles cheating on her, and also took aim at critics who give her flak for writing about her relationships in her songs.
“For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that's taking something that potentially should be celebrated – a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way – that's taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist,” Swift told the magazine.
