Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, and ex-boyfriend 50 Cent helped comedienne Chelsea Handler wrap up her late-night E! TV show, “Chelsea Lately,” after seven years on Tuesday.

Bullock and Aniston joined another of Handler’s best pals, actress Mary McCormack, to stage a mock intervention and hold the host exactly what they thought of her.

McCormack blamed the funny lady for wrecking her acting career and landing her with a bad reputation, while Aniston criticized Handler for stealing “everything I do”, adding, “I introduced you to my yoga teacher (and) you stole my yoga teacher,” and, “You’re not fooling anyone with those blue eyes… I mean seriously, who dyes their eyes? That’s just weird.”

Bullock, who told Handler “You still scare me a little”, scolded her pal for teasing lesbians, adding, “You’re either into girls or you’re not”.

The “Gravity” star then brought Handler’s “ex-lover” 50 Cent onto the studio stage, insisting he was the last thing that was cool about the host.

The comedienne appeared thrilled to see her ex, who she admitted she hadn’t seen since they split.

She told the rapper, “I wanted to apologize because I did end our relationship abruptly and I know you didn’t come on the show for many years.”

She then joked, “But seriously, are you over me?”

The rapper then performed new single “Watch Me” with his rap collective G-Unit before walking off stage hugging his ex, who could be heard saying, “Thanks, babe.”

Handler wrapped up the hour-long special with a performance from Miley Cyrus, who sang Roy Orbison’s “It’s Over,” dressed in a western style shirt and red pants, before Gwen Stefani led an all-star choir with a send-off spoof of USA For Africa’s “We Are The World.”

The celebrities who joined her, Handler, 50 Cent, Bullock, Aniston and McCormack onstage included Vanessa Hudgens, Fergie, Trace Adkins, Avril Lavigne, Gerard Butler, Alanis Morissette, Kate Beckinsale, Justin Theroux, Selena Gomez, Melissa McCarthy, Dave Grohl, Leann Rimes, Sammy Hagar, Chloe Grace Moretz, Johnny Knoxville, astronaut Buzz Aldrin and Anna Faris.

Handler is taking her talents to Netflix, with a series of specials slated to start next year.
