(Newser) Chelsea Lately ended its seven-year run last night, and Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, and Mary McCormack stopped by to stage an "intervention" for their close friend, E! reports. Ever since becoming friends with Handler, "the closest I get to a vegetable is the potato, in potato vodka," McCormack said, while Aniston complained about Handler's "foul-smelling body." And then Bullock, reading from a letter: "Dear George, your practical jokes are annoying. Oh sorry, I copy-and-pasted this format from my Clooney intervention."

Also on hand were Ellen DeGeneres—who, like Bullock once did, confronted a naked Handler in the shower—and even Handler's ex, 50 Cent, who performed his new song. At the very end of the show, dozens of stars came onstage to sing "Goodbye to E!," People reports. Over at the Daily Beast, Kevin Fallon calls Handler's final moments onscreen "one last middle finger": "'I'll see you on Netflix!' she bellowed, plugging her new outlet while still on-air on the one that made her a star."
