Chelsea Handler Blasts Piers Morgan On Live TV

Leave it to Chelsea Handler to remove the filter and read a bitch on live T.V. We knew her interview with exiting CNN host Piers Morgan would be good, but what was delivered exceeded expectations.

This took place after Piers called Chelsea "tawdry":

PIERS: You tweet. Very amusingly.

CHELSEA: I wish you did.

PIERS: [pained laughter]

CHELSEA: I mean in the middle of the commercial break — I want your viewers to know; they must know, because they're probably following you on Twitter. I mean you can't even pay attention for 60 seconds. You're a terrible interviewer.

PIERS: Well you just weren't keeping my attention.

CHELSEA: That's not my problem.

PIERS: That is your problem!

CHELSEA: This is your show. You have to pay attention to the guests that you invited on your show.

PIERS: If they're interesting enough!

CHELSEA: Yeah, listen. It doesn't matter how interesting I am. You signed up for this job.

PIERS: Of course it does!

CHELSEA: Well, maybe that's why your job is coming to an end.

PIERS: Woooow.

CHELSEA: Wow.

It's even more delicious watching the back-and-forth unfold on video. You might want to microwave a bag of popcorn and get comfortable because it's worth putting on repeat!

Lighten up people! Years ago this would have been seen as witty, humorous, good for tv banter. Nowadays everyone's so uptight and PC and every little thing is turned into a controversy, it is ridiculous!

I'm not a huge fan of Chelsea Handler, but I agree with her here. Some TV interviewers are just awful. They don't care about what they do, and they just crank it out like processed sausage. I would have loved to seen what went on during the commercial to understand what set her off this way. 

The beginning is very funny.  That is good comedy.  It turns when Chelsea says you are a terrible interviewer.  Unfortunate because it was funny.

I like Piers! He a different, own style interview technique! He's not afraid to ask the questions others won't, and get answers to what viewers want! Look at Piers Morgan Life Stories on ITV for example, the interview technique works perfectly there. By the sounds of it, Piers was right, she was a bore! Getting defensive because he was asking what she gets up too when she's off work, she saw her arse and said "I am working'" get a life love! 

All these people saying keep him America, signed on behalf of the United Kingdom, well United Kingdom Minus 1 please! :-)

We really really really don't want him back here because then we'd have to spend tax money on taking him to court for all the hacking he's responsible for and which is why he's run off over stateside. Let's dump him in the Atlantic and 

Piers Morgan is one of the worst show hosts in the world. He has no tact and makes interviews so boring. I'd much rather watch Amonpour. Even Ryan Seacrest has more journalistic merit when it comes to performing interviews. Piers Morgan deserved that, love you Chelsea. 

This is horrible.  Should not be shown on TV, what is the purpose of this? 

What's horrible Erick?

He's a jerk off. 

Chelsea's "fame" is based more upon her being rude and mean about, and to others then based on her talent (whatever that may be). I truly have no idea why she is still on TV. 

Quite funny

haha is this a news busters clip? lets not give that right wing crazysauce group anymore page views...

Piers is a terrible interviewer - he asks questions and before the person at whom the question was directed can fully reply, Piers interrupts again and again and again.  Who was the brilliant person that thought he was a good replacement for Larry King.  Fire them both.

Take the slimy limey and throw him into Boston harbor.

Dear Americans, please keep Piers Morgan over there.  We don't want him back here.

Thanks,

The United Kingdom

Seems only CNN wants him. He was supposed to be the edgy Britt, but he just became the bitchy prick instead.

LOL right!  he's an obnoxious prick and we dont want him back.

Nothing unusual here.

She probably talks the same way to her dad (if not worse!).  That's just Chelsea.

Piers might not suck a dick, but he'll keep it in his mouth until the swelling goes down.

Piers Morgan sucks giant donkey dick - and even THAT he can't make interesting.

I second this comment.

Chelsea may not be everyone's cup of tea, but in this video, I just gave her a standing ovation. Piers Morgan just got served!
