Joan Rivers: Chelsea Handler’s “An Ordinary Girl That Was F*cking Somebody High Up”

After Chelsea Handler went on The Howard Stern Show Monday and told Joan Rivers to “f*ck off,” Rivers returned fire on Wednesday’s show.

“Number one, the girl made it on her back fucking the president, we all know that, of the network,” Joan said of Handler. “Number two, she’s fine, she’s ordinary. She’s not a genius. She’s an ordinary girl that was fucking somebody high up in the industry and they gave her a break and she’s doing okay. Whatever she is, she’s a drunk. I don’t wish her good luck, I don’t wish her bad luck. I don’t think she’s particularly funny. But don’t you come after me, you whore!”

Wow, looks like the gays are gonna have to pick sides here.

We don’t know why these ladies are at each others’ throats anyway. They’re both bottle blondes obsessed with preserving themselves—Chelsea with Stoli, Joan with the blood of young virgins.

      At least Chelsea is getting fucked…Joan has probably grown back and grassed over.

      Chelsea is the one always making homophobic comments, Chelsea is the one always being defended by gays. Go figure.

      Is this really necessary? I mean a feud between these two? We love both of them. I hope they make peace soon.

      @ Oh, Ok.
      Couldn’t have said it better myself. I find her extremely insulting and not in a subversive sort of Lisa Lampenelli way. Bigotry is not funny.
      But I mean I hope no ones comparing her to Joan Rivers… that’s like comparing Willow Smith to Aretha Franklin…

      No, we don’t. To hell with both of these bleeding vaginas. There are more important issues to focus on that actually affect gays directly.

      That was obvious a few years ago when Chelsea got her start and nobody knew who she was. But she’s become her own person now.

      JOAN all the way!! I’m so glad she’s calling this bitch Chelsea out!! She said exactly what I’ve always wanted to say about Chelsea- she’s not funny and she’s a bitch! Of course, a lot of comedy comes from mocking people- but Joan does it as a craft where Chelsea just hurls insults. It’s about time someone took Chelsea down a notch.

      Joan also did a “New Yorkers For Equality” PSA. Chelsea should watch Joans amazing documentary “A Piece Of Work” and realize just what Joan went through and did for women like Chelsea. Team Joan.

      @Norm Castle: Joan Rivers is 78 years old. She is still relevant, has two series on the air, sells a ton of stuff at QVC and paved the way for Kathy, Chelsea, Whitney, Lisa Lampanelli and anyone else you can think of.

      You’re making ageist remarks in the face of this legacy?

      You don’t deserve to be a homosexual man.

      The one thing…

      I don’t think you can disagree with Joan. Chelsea was an unknown comic who WAS sleeping with the president of the network who then gave her a show. As soon as the show got some ratings she dumped the guy.

      She’s done well on the show. But I can’t find fault with Joan’s statement.

      Joan is 1,000% correct.

      Chelsea Handler is a vicious, talentless hack. She isn’t remotely funny. She got where she is using her peesh. The other one is Whitney Cummings. Another talentless hack who has her own TV show on NBC and is consistently at the bottom of the ratings.

      I will bet anyone $10 dollars Whitney is screwing an NBC executive.

      John Rivers is a LEGEND and has been consitently funny for decades and she is a true friend of gays. She works for many causes that directly benefit us so CH can suck it….oh wait she already has thats how she got the show. If yo haven’t seen Joan’s show Fashion Police you are truly missing one of the funniest 1/2 hours on TV.

      Joan is right. She almost always is. Chelsea’s not funny, but she puts things together well enough to make people laugh. They just achieved success and fame in their own way. I support them both, and it doesn’t matter if they get along, I’ll watch them both.

      Team Joan, although I do enjoy “Chelsea Lately” occasionally. Joan paved the way for Chelsea and her peers in a very mysogenistic industry.
      Although both can be a bit mean spirited, I’ve always found that Joan is an equal opportunity bitch, picking on everyone, unlike Chelsea, who has a tendency to suck up to new celebrity BFFs like Jennifer Anniston, Reese Witherspoon and Robin Wright while nastily trashing Angelina Jolie. Why?!? I daresay that Angelina has given more money to charities than Jennifer and is probably the more critically acclaimed actress/bigger movie star. Is Jennifer Anniston Hollywood’s new Mother Theresa?!? Above the nasty comments made at Jolie’s expense? Why? If you objectively compare “Fashion Police” and “Chelsea Lately” Joan takes more risks, has more bite and is actually edgier in her humor/snark. Why? Chelsea, IMO, is a bit reminiscent of Perez (when outing defenseless closet cases) in his heyday – picking on the more defenseless/or who choose to ignore her barbs while she refrains from trashing those with more clout unless they’re the Kardashians (and there was a time when she was very nice to them. Ughhh!) Why? That’s not being a good comedian, especially one who is being profiled by “Yhe New York Times.” (Note: The one recent exception to this may be Chelsea’s outing of Luke Evans – the only mainstrean media person to do so. Perhaps they don’t share the same publicist/management team?)
      I would ask Chelsea’s defenders the following: Have you noticed that Chelsea’s panel has always includes a very limited group of lgbt comedians that reinforce traditional stereotypes – the effeminate queen with/ without weight issues and the butch lesbian?!? Why?!? Where are the lgbt equivalents of a Josh Wolfe, Arden Marie, Whitney Cummings, Dov, et,al. Chelsea and/or her casting director could easily view reruns of HereTV’s lgbt comic series to broaden the mix a bit on her panels – Shawn Hollenbach and Dave Rubin, numerous bloggers, et,al., immediately come to mind but there are many more talents out there. Once again, if she is such an ally of our community and so cutting edge, why stick with/reinforce such traditional steroetypes?!? Not terribly cutting edge, IMO.
      Chelsea had no qualms about outing a very young Chris Colfer on her show, yet on “Regis and Kelly” she was very sweet to the allegedly gay Matt Bomer while discussing house hunting and facetiously suggesting that they should partner up. Why? Perhaps because he’s incredibly well connected? She certainly had no qualms about trashing Joan, Mariah and others on Howard Stern’s show. Isn’t her forte her allaged bluntness, honesty and outrageousness? Chelsea’s rather selective in her outrageousness. She’ll make fun of people on her show, Howard’s, but not “R & K” or Leno’s show. Joan’s appearances always contain some barbs. Hmmmm. Chelsea’s defenders should think about these points before rushing to Chelsea’s defense and trashing Joan – perhaps learn to be a bit more discerning and critical.
      Best, JeffR

      Have you ever seen Joan on “The View”? It’s PAINFUL. She’s even less funny than Behar (and that’s hard to do). “Fashion Police” is somewhat passable. Must have better writers.

      Chelsea rocks. She’s laughing with us, not at us. And I’ve been watching her since her “Girls Behaving Badly” days.

      no idea who this Chelsea woman is, never heard of her but when Joan is on the tv over here as she has done since the early 80′s she is always worth watching and very funny and even more funny when she’s taking the piss out of herself!

      Perhaps Chelsea should come over here and see if she can cut it with a British audience!

      Joan Rivers = Household name

      Tom (post 24) says correctly that Joan is a legend. Love her or hate her, she’s been around for decades and has earned everything she has. Personally, I think she’s incredible.

      Until today I’d never heard of Chelsea Handler. I had to resort to Wikipedia to learn anything about her and I really don’t care to learn more.

      You know I always thought Chelsea was just trying to impress the younger women who like her by saying she drinks vodka all the time and does all that partying. If she did it would really show. I’m sure she may have done it when she was younger but probably not now. Some of the stuff Chelsea says or what is written for her is somewhat humorous but it mystifies me when they say she is worth so many millions and her “books” are on the NY times bestseller list. I guess allot of the women are acting like her. As in Jenny McCarthy writing a book about taking drugs and having sex with a tree. This was when they were in their 20′s if it is true. Who didn’t go stupid stuff. I really don’t know why people think these women are so funny. (not talking about Joan here) There is one girl who is pretty funny her name is Amy can’t remember the last name. I shouldn’t even be commenting on this, as I don’t care about show biz and the pretend feuds to get publicity. I’m out of here. Have a great day all.
