Huffington Post speculates as to whether Jennifer Aniston is distancing herself from her new buddy Chelsea Handler. No one really wants to be close to either Dr Drew or Chelsea Handler this week in the Hollywood hood. Handler and Drew attack people they haven’t met and don’t know anything about. Anyone would think they both thought they were like bloggers or something. ;)
It could all change in a week though. Chelsea could be Hollywood’s darling next week if she did something extremely funny to redeem herself. That’s show biz.
A general rule of thumb though is that, if you’re a team player, you just might observe that when someone is in the act of promoting a Hollywood movie, that this clearly is not the best time to attack them publicly. Simply because California’s economy rides on the success of movies doing well. If you can’t observe that one rule–Hollywood views you as being just a little bit dumb as you could hurt our economy. Believe it or not, movie stars are also cultural treasures of America–more so than talk show hosts or reality TV peeps. There’s a whole tradition that goes with movie stars in Hollywood. It’s sort of military, you discover if you live here. To diss someone without a purpose (other than for yourself alone), makes it look like you don’t really know Hollywood history.
ENTITLED CHELSEA HANDLER NEEDS TO TRAVEL TO A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY, ADOPT OR BREED ABOUT NOW, THAT’S ALL HER ANGELINA JOLIE DISSING RANTS REVEAL
The wikileaks scandal taught us that it is writers typed words that are often more important than the faces that present this ‘truth’ or information.
Up until now, I have liked Chelsea Handler, the Jewish-Catholic girl from New Jersey who slept with her boss, to keep her job on E! Entertainment and rise as a talk show star of Los Angeles of younger funnier women on the block in California.
Handler’s claim to fame is saying the word gay as many times as she possibly can in one taped episode of her talk show. She actually doesn’t have a real gay brother, but she pretends she’s the sister of people who identify with being gay. So many American girls are famous with the gay word and a bottle of peroxide it all gets a bit thin when so many compete against each other as a base to fame with this tactic.
Basically, this is Chelsea’s gig. She dyes her hair blonde and then says “gay, gay, gay” a million times, to be funny and famous. It’s so thin to me, her whole schtick. Normally though, she’s quite funny with her jokes gay writers have written for her. I have laughed at her on many occasion–because Chelsea’s writers are kind of ridiculous with Chelsea as their puppet face. I always look at the writing, whether that be in entertainment, politics or business–not the face presenting the information alone. Writers are funnier and just as authentic to me, than presenters.
Now Handler is dissing Angelina Jolie in “supposed to be comedy live shows” (more…)
Everything about Los Angeles talk show host Chelsea Handler is hot these days.
Above, Chelsea managed to get Taylor Swift onto her show to confess she’s a fan. Handler is having Thanksgiving holidays with Jennifer Aniston in Los Cabos, Mexico (see pics below) and even her co-hosts/ writers of The Chelsea Lately Show are appearing in Hollywood comedies like Morning Glory and No Strings Attached. This is what can happen to girls who are half Catholic, half Jewish from New Jersey and who are funny and date their boss. Love it.
In fairness, I’m running this Chelsea Handler spotlight post today as Chelsea’s Boss’ Boss of E! Entertainment Television is Comcast and NBC/ Universal, who are broadcasting The Rugby World Cup in America next year. This makes them super hot for that pioneering sports spirit. By proxi, Chelsea Handler and her team too. Nice work from Chelsea all round in L.A! A funny girl.

Previously on this website, it was alleged that cheeky girl of LA’s late night talk TV set, Chelsea Handler was going to the Candy Shop, with rapper, actor, Fiddy (Fifty Cent). Well, not yet.
Chelsea says: “Everyone, calm down. I met with mr. Cent about a potential project. There’s nothing to report yet, ill let you know if there is.”
That’s the latest on that situation.

Los Angeles favorite Jewish-Catholic talk show host of Late Night TV, was spotted getting closer, with rap star, actor Fifty Cent in a dual publicity build up of film, TV talk and music.

When the star of the night, wore a faux meat dress (cow couture) to the VMA’s, every vegan critic and entertainment reporter had to take it out on someone.
That person, turned out to be the other new blonde star of the night, Chelsea Handler of New Jersey, now living in California. Of Chelsea’s first MTV Video Music Awards MC hosting gig, here’s what other media outlets had to say:
Entertainment Weekly says Handler was “too paint by numbers.” Her jokes about Kanye West, they dubbed “edgy-but-boring.” How can you be both edgy and boring? That’s such entitled analysis.
The Washington Post critiqued Handler’s opening monologue, labeling her banter “a string of flat punch lines that felt a few degrees below crass.” Hello, this girl’s from New Jersey originally. Chelsea’s humor is a NJ art form. But perhaps, I see The Post‘s point. On the Chelsea Lately Show any press is good press, and that was a compliment.
The New York Times were the most scathing. New York has its own late night talk market of hosts to gun for. Here’s what they said: “among the worst [hosts] in the show’s history.” Ouch.
“Here, she never looked comfortable, undone by nerves, brittle material, and the wattage of those around her.” Okay, so she’s not Carol Burnett yet. Noted. Although they like Chelsea on her Late Night Show (“consistently funny”), they went on to describe her as being “purposefully out-of-touch, with brief, alarming flashes of off-color racial humor.”
Chelsea’s whole gig is the: gay, lesbian, black, disabled, fat, Asian, redhead, Jewish, Catholic schtick. Like… used all together, as many times as you can get these words into one the sentence. She’s really proud of herself, when she can.
In fact, a perfect show for Chelsea is when all of these words are used at least 30 times (each), in a Chelsea half hour TV format. Guests have to be at least three of those labels, to even make it onto her show.
Or if a celebrity guest (who brings in ratings), they must at least be prepared to say three of these words while Chelsea interviews them. In this role, Handler is very funny. She crosses all the taboo lines that many mainstream media gatekeepers are not. So to label Chelsea Handler ‘alarming’ with ‘off-color racial humor’ is to miss the point of why she was even chosen as host this year. Handler would have loved that racist compliment, the best.
When she returns to her late night hosting gig, she should just wear a slab of meat on her head for the duration of the whole show for a laugh. The Hollywood Reporter now under new management, decided to grill Handler too. Not really. They just ran with what The Times ran with.
A note, to Handler’s team, to start including THR news references into their programming content perhaps. (That’s like a Hollywood, “hello”). Janice Min, is the new girl in charge.
In California, everyone loves Chelsea Handler. She’s naughty. And Jewish-Catholic zany fun. She’s also one of the few female hosts the Awards Show has had. Maybe critics just don’t like female hosts, because she wasn’t that bad in her first MC hosting gig.
It’s rational thinking just to blame the faux cow-couture dress Lady Gaga wore as the show stopper of gross, on these Vegan critics testy words, instead.
There’s nothing that annoys a testy vegan media critic more than plastic meat. They can’t even choose not to eat that. Or question whether it exists or not, is real or not, to entertain. Poor Chelsea Handler. She did a stellar job.
I would like to see Chelsea get funnier on her show. Like, she could use the words ‘Muslim, Iran, terrorist, Arabs, Middle Easterners, mosque, hummus’ … for instance, more so than she does, on late night talk. Carol Burnett certainly would have, if Burnett had the spotlight today, to entertain.

When I last caught up with Chelsea Handler of the Chelsea Lately talk show, LA’s wittiestly potty-mouth blonde of late night talk shows, announced to the world that she was going to be MTV Music Awards host this year in LA.
Chelsea did this by rocking out to a Natasha Beddingfield concert (it’s a blonde thing) in Glendale, CA, with her beau Dave Salmoni close by.
Well today, Cheslea – who has a major phobia of animals that don’t look like domesticated dogs or cats, decided to put Dave in the ‘sometimes boyfriend’ department, which in Hollywood means, her star brand is greater than his right now. Poor Dave.
EOnline the home of Chelsea’s show says this about her decision: “Up until a couple weeks ago, I was working very intimately with the Animal Planet, but unfortunately, that contract was terminated,” she playfully revealed during her monologue. “However, I enjoyed being in bed with them and may hook up for an occasional project.”
Yep, it’s a jungle out there. But at least somebody’s able to see the forest for the trees.”
All the trees say Chelsea is funny. Period. Other than that, she has her scriptwriters writing the best dialogue for her on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in local Hollywood cafes, I’ve noticed of late. What a taskmaster! Is popularity in Hollywood a drug? :)
Let’s not forget that Chelsea got her job by sleeping with her boss, for five years, before we’re too quick to judge Dave.
To watch Chelsea’s ego, announce the news herself, go here. A girl’s gotta do.

Chelsea Handler is one popular Jewish-Catholic New Jersey girl in California these days. Reports Just Jared: ‘Last night, it was announced that Chelsea would be hosting the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards on September 12th.
Chelsea says: “This has been a huge year for hip-hop and rap, and it is well-known that I have the closest ties with these communities – musically and sexually,” she joked in a statement. “I am to rap and hippity-hop what Warren Buffet is to finance, minus the sex.” Handler is too funny.
Chelsea also rocked out to see Kiwi-Brit singer-songwriter, Natasha Beddingfield, perform live in concert at Glendale last night in LA, with her beau, Dave Salmoni, the host of Animal Planet. Hollywood’s latest couple have been dating a month.

Blondes who love to chat it up on camera, is what California enjoys doing on late night Talk TV. The Chelsea Lately Show is one of the best in the nation on this art form of disseminating pop cultural blah blah for the American people.
Australians can benefit from Chelsea’s acerbic brand of humor too sometimes, when Chelsea jet sets to Sydney to create off shore American TV talk too, down under.
Props to Chelsea Handler for finally being star worthy enough to land A-List stars like Jennifer Aniston. And who doesn’t love Jenn Aniston. She’s always a honey.
TV ratings progress is looking good on Handler. A sign that humorists are an elixir for feel good entertainment in current times.

According to the website Queerty–rapper Jay-Z got in a spat with Chelsea Handler at the Coachella music festival in the week end, because he was a bit homophobic. Go here to read.
I doubt whether that is true, as Jay-Z produces and mentors Rihanna and if you ever read her song lyrics, you know that Rihanna is very gay friendly. Actually, this rumored Chelsea Handler feud is a huge compliment to Jay-Z and Beyonce as the way the star system is played, is that a star must strike their flint against a more established star’s metal to get some buzz. It’s the playful rhetoric of America’s celebrity star system and how it creates new stars and makes stars bigger, brighter and stronger.
If Jay-Z accepts/ continues or replies to the alleged feud with Handler, than he’s saying Chelsea of the Chelsea Lately show is A-Okay. I hope he does, because Chelsea is always fun.
And any phobia that gets addressed in any society by just being talked about (eg: saying the words gay or Asian or black or Middle Eastern as many times as we can–has got to be good for overal society’s acceptance of people classed as different).
The alleged report, also framed Beyonce as Jay-Z’s submissive wife, unable to stand up to Jay-Z as if Beyonce was some kind of black Stepford Wife. Again, Beyonce earns more than twice what Jay-Z does a year, so if she’s being submissive, she’s just being a lady to amuse her man’s sense of humor.
Beyonce is a huge icon in the gay community–and many communities, so I doubt that Jay-Z would be so ignorant. It’s nice to see Chelsea getting another shout out in the press though. This girl is always worthy of a spotlight more often than not. She has funny, witty and dazzling things to say. She makes the US look smart. That’s a celebrity leader in my book for the 2010′s decade.
In America, we love all three of these stars.

Perhaps worse than burning one’s peen with scalding hot water, is the need to talk about it two months after the fact, on nationwide TV.
Thankfully, Los Angeles’ witty woman of TV Talk, Chelsea Handler let Channing Tatum vent his spleen about it on The Chelsea Lately Show.
Are you over it yet Channing? Move on bro! :)

To be celebrity, you’ve got to have something to sell. No one knows this better than comedian Kathy Griffin. She was hysterically funny on the Chelsea Lately Show with America’s reigning queen of late night talk, Chelsea Handler.
Kathy has these things to promote: a new book: Official Book Club Selection, a new CD: Suckin’ It For The Holidays, Kathy’s plastic surgery, her fantasy relationship with Sarah Palin‘s grandchild’s father, Levi Johnston, and Andre Agassi as a change from Tiger Woods.
She’s just too funny in being the best wannabe celebrity ever. Really she is like Spencer and Heidi Pratt all rolled up into one lapsed Irish-Catholic, American girl’s fake body. Watch the clip for a chortle if you need a laugh.

Watch what happens when Rove McManus, Australia’s King of Late Night Talk meets Chelsea Handler, Hollywood’s reigning queen of Late Night Talk.
Excuse the bleeps. This is as good as Late Night Talk gets between Hollywood, USA and Australia.
I love the way that Chelsea tries to pitch to Rove to cross the Pacific Ocean and experience the bigger terrain of US Talk Show markets at the E! Entertainment Network. She’s too cute. A great moment.
Hopefully Rove will come to America and rock his witty Aussie banter out here in Los Angeles. That would rock!
