Tori Spelling, Chelsea Handler

It's nice to know that Tori Spelling can take a good joke or two…or three…or four.

Tori actually thanked Chelsea Handler in her acceptance speech last night at Bravo's A-List Awards for constantly being mean to her on Chelsea Lately.

"I want to thank you for finding ways to say I'm ugly and stupid, week after week," said Spelling, who picked up the award for Celebrity Autobiography. "It's funny I say that on the night that I know she is here. And now I'm worried to leave, because I don't know if she's going to hold me down and beat me up or try to feed me a sandwich."

In true comedic form, Handler had a quick Spelling-dissing rebuttal later in the evening when she accepted her A-List Funny Award…

"I'm a little full right now. I just ate Tori Spelling," she cracked. "I want to thank her for being able to take a joke. I'm going to try my hardest not to tell her she looks like a man anymore. It's not nice. Even if it's true, it's not nice."

Spelling insisted to us that she really is "cool" with Handler's zingers. "You know what? I think Chelsea's cool," Spelling said at the awards afterparty at the Edison in downtown L.A. "I think she's really funny. But at the end of the day, it's like if she's always trashing me, then there's got to be some reason that I'm newsworthy…As long as she's funny about it, that's cool."

Hosted by Kathy Griffin, the ceremony also recognized Justin Timberlake, Neil Patrick Harris, The Office, Gwen Stefani and the late Natasha Richardson, who was honored for her AIDS work.

The show airs on April 15 on Bravo at 10 p.m.
