Chelsea Handler is used to making jokes about people and poking fun at them but things got a bit more serious on Pierce Morgan’s show Monday. She was on his CNN show, which was announced to be cancelled earlier this month, to promote her new book, Uganda Be Kidding Me.
When Morgan tweeted and only paid attention to his phone on the commercial break, Handler had a few choice words for him. “I mean, you can’t even pay attention for 60 seconds,” she said. “You’re a terrible interviewer.” But that wasn’t the end of it.
“Well, you just weren’t keeping my attention,” Morgan said back. “It’s more of an issue for you than for me.” He is known for his smart mouth and criticism of…well, everyone. He wasn’t about to stay quiet when Handler made her comments. And that’s when she snapped.
“This is your show, you have to pay attention to the guests that you invited on your show. Listen, it doesn’t matter how interesting I am. You signed up for this show.” It was an interesting, and hilarious quick fire between the two. Finally before finishing Handler took a jab at his show’s cancellation. We can always count on her to say on television what we’re all thinking.
“Maybe that’s why your job is coming to an end.”
The moral of the story is: don’t mess with Chelsea Handler.
