Does it bug you when someone ignores you by reading texts on their smart phones during the commercial breaks? Well, it sent Chelsea Handler, one of the most connected folks in Hollywood, right over the edge, and she let it all out LIVE! And ON THE AIR! Fantastic, Chelsea.
Handler called Morgan “a terrible interviewer” and said “maybe that’s why your job is coming to an end,” about Piers’ show that has already been canceled by CNN which will be off the air any day now.
Here’s the gist of the blow out:
Piers Morgan: “How do you spend your life when you’re not working?”
Chelsea Handler: “Well I have to come here and tolerate this nonsense.” (…and then what she is actually doing – a book, her show, etc.)
PM: “You tweet very amusingly.”
CH: “I wish you did. I want your viewers to know that in the middle of the commercial break — I mean, you can’t even pay attention for 60 seconds. You’re a terrible interviewer.”
PM: “Well, you just weren’t keeping my attention.”
CH: “That’s not my problem, this is your show and you have to pay attention to the guests that you invited on your show.”
PM: “If they’re interesting enough.”
CH: “Listen, it doesn’t matter how interesting I am, you signed up for this job.”
PM: “Of course it does!”
CH: “Well maybe that’s why your job is coming to an end.”
