Chelsea Handler Finally Tells Piers Morgan What Everyone Else Is Thinking

chelsea-handler-piers-morganComedy queen Chelsea Handler visited Piers Morgan Live last night, apparently by force, to plug her new book, Uganda Be Kidding Me.

As a four-time New York Times best seller, she was clearly not having any of Morgan’s dismissive attitude regarding her work ethic and “tawdry” new memoir.

Morgan, most noted for being an insensitive asshole, asked Handler “How do you spend your life when you’re not working?”

Handler responded by reading him for filth, telling him “I have to come here and tolerate this nonsense.” She aptly described him as “a terrible interviewer” and accused him of not paying proper attention to his guests. “Maybe that’s why your job is coming to an end,” she said.

CNN previously announced that Piers Morgan Live would be getting the axe, though no official date has been announced yet. Tomorrow works for us…

      I watched it and maybe the earlier footage would have provided some context but she seemed pissed that he didn’t entertain her during the commercial and was out for him.

      He’s a bit of a blow-hard but she came off kinda douchey as well.

      I can’t hate a man I don’t know for absolutely no reason. All I know is what Louis said is true, he has been an LGBT ally for a while, but everyone seems to blindly hate him.

      oh please. what kind of an “ally” invites a transwoman onto his show, not with the intent to listen, but rather to talk about hes the victim of “cisphobia.” Instead of listening, he dismisses the trials and tribulations and experiences of an oppressed group just so he can tell himself that hes a “good person” who “cares”

      She performs “comedy”? Nothing funnier than a mean, bitter woman. She looks like she could out bitch Judge Judy.

      @buybioniconitunes: truth is janet mock would not have been on the show if she wasn’t transgendered. for her to assume that questions about her life before her change were off limits are crazy, people want to know. she gets mad when she has to tell men she is trans because her appearance is that of a woman so the rest of the world she see her that way, well honey what happens when the guy wants kids, do those APPEAR somehow. i appreciate the trans community and their struggles i even found out i am cis male – i identify with the gender i was born with. sounds a little over complicatd

      I didn’t think it was that bad. She was a bit gruff, but not too nasty. He laughed it off.

      I can’t believe that Handler is in her early 30′s

      @jasentylar: there is nothing more distasteful than someone from a majority group dismissing the complaints of an oppressed group as oversensitive. and really? you act like the gay community doesnt get up in arms even when someone who is completely irrelevant misspeaks and says something that can sort of but not really be interpreted as anti-gay. gurl bye

      @gskorich: um you do know how interviews work right? The interviewers are supposed to get the questions cleared beforehand. Furthermore, so what if people want to know more about it? Its not Janet’s duty to inform you about anything. You want to really satiate your curiosity, then use Google ffs. You seem to act as if being trans is all about genitals and the idea of procreation. Well, it isnt. You can talk about trans issues without being like “This person used to be a BOY. She used to have a penis! He/she cant have kids” when really the transwoman may never even have EVER identified as a boy.

      @buybioniconitunes: I don’t give a damn what she identifies as. I’m not dismissing anything. What I’m simply saying is if Piers was so fucking unpleasant, then why go back so he can be unpleasant again? Oh yeahhh cause she’s a fame whore. BITCH BYE

      @jasentylar: yea okay. first of all your first two sentences contradict each other. second, her being a supposed fame whore. thats REALLY the issue at hand? or you know, maybe, she went back to try to clarify and hoped that it would be an educational moment for America.
