In One Tweet, Chelsea Handler Offered The Most Brutal Roger Ailes Burn Yet

Former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes died yesterday and the Internet made quick work of memorializing him. Some people were kinder than others. There were on-air tributes and in-writing take-downs. A few tweets really encapsulated the moment’s emotions… …but none quite like this one from comedian Chelsea Handler: Graphic? Yes. Point made? Yes. Ailes was known not only for being the force behind Fox News, but for how he left it. Last summer, mounting allegations of sexual harassment against female employees pushed him out the door and into a strange existence composed of equal parts infamy and obscurity.

‘A Very Good Drug Addict’: Watch Chelsea Handler Struggle to Say Nice Things About Charlie Sheen, Others

Chelsea Handler is best known as a talk show host, but this week she’s switching roles and has become the guest on the newest episode of truTV’s Talk Show the Game Show. In a preview clip for this week’s episode, host Guy Branum notes that Handler has “made a career out of taking down pop culture icons,” and so he challenges her to do the impossible: Be nice. In the game, “One Nice Thing,” Handler has to say one nice thing about a bunch of different celebrities. She’ll be judged on her sincerity, creativity, and clarity of diction. As you might guess, the “niceness” of the things she says is debatable. When prompted with a photo of Taylor Swift, she says “Taylor Swift is a very tall, lean singer.” True. For Lisa Rinna, she says, “She’s married to Harry Hamlin for a long time so they’re in love.

Screen Shot 2017-01-17 at 12.03.50 PMIn a new interview with VarietyChelsea Handler talked about — what else? — Donald Trump. She, like so many celebrities, said she would flee after his election, but stayed when her staff greeted her with hugs in the days following the election and told her that she is their “mouthpiece” and outlet. Her show, which streams on Netflix, took a decidedly anti-Trump turn and she has no regrets. “We have more of an impact being on Netflix than I would have had on another network, because we have a huge international audience,” she explained. “It’s nice to be able to let them know that just because this man is our president, this is not a representation of everybody in our country. It’s a representation of less than half the people.” When it comes to representation, Handler and her Chelsea staff know what they’re doing. They’ve used their Continue reading "‘We Have To Hold Him Accountable’: Chelsea Hander Talks ‘Anti-Trump’ Vibe Of Her Show"

sally-field-e1480704724905You may have noticed that Sally Field recently joined Twitter as @realmommagump, which is an ideal handle for her. She also recently told Chelsea Handler on Chelsea that President-Elect Donald Trump‘s surprising win is the reason she joined, because she doesn’t understand it. She wants to know why people “voted for this man who does not stand for anything, and has no real evidence…there is no evidence that he can do one single thing that he says he’s going to do.” “He has shown to be everything that he accuses and has accused Hillary Clinton of being. It is now evident he is all of those things, every single thing that he accused her of. I don’t think that all Continue reading "Donald Trump’s Win Prompted Sally Field to Join Twitter"

Chelsea Handler Breaks Down Over Hillary Clinton’s Loss

chelsea-handler-e1478813474860Chelsea Handler had outgoing California senator Barbara Boxer on her Netflix show Chelsea yesterday and got incredibly emotional when talking about Hillary Clinton‘s loss. She began the episode saying, “The election’s over and obviously the result is not what I was hoping for. Like a lot of people in this country, I’m sad, I’m disappointed and I’m confused. But if Hillary can make it through a concession speech, then I’m going to make it through a stupid television show, so I’m going to.” Boxer expressed similar sentiments, saying “My heart’s on the floor, and I think the first thing to do when something like this happens is admit that. A lot of us are on the ground right now… But that doesn’t mean you run away. It means you pick yourself up, as the president said, and you fight even harder for our country, ‘cause it’s ours.” Continue reading "Chelsea Handler Breaks Down Over Hillary Clinton’s Loss"
