Chelsea Handler Tells Piers Morgan He's a 'Terrible Interviewer' and That's Why His Show is Over: VIDEO


Piers Morgan, whose show was canceled in late February following a set of fiery exchanges with trans activist and author Janet Mock, offended Chelsea Handler, who appeared on his show last night.

Handler accused Morgan of not paying attention to her, and he shot back that perhaps she would deserve attention if she were more interesting. Handler said that shouldn't matter and called him a "terrible interviewer" and added that perhaps his lack of interest in his guests is why his show is coming to an end.

Watch the brutal exchange (which they reportedly have a habit of having),

  1. Piers, you can't handler the truth.

  2. She always knows what she's doing. Pretends like she's lit 24/7, but she's a control freak with a strong sense of self. Wish her show was better...

  3. I think they're both repulsive.

  4. I love her.

  5. I'm not a fan of her, but she's right. Too many if these interviewers and pseudo journalists ask a question, then talks over the guest before they've barely articulated a thought and won't let them finish. Why would anyone subject themselves to this, and how is this providing a service to their audiences, who might actually be interested in what the guest has to say instead of the host's blustering and talking points.

  6. One witch dead, now let's drop a house on her too.

  7. Who cares? Towleroad is just running this to trash Piers Morgan because he is this week's enemy of the trans activists.

    But regardless of what becomes of PM and his show, trans activists are and always will be hostile, mentally unbalanced people. They are also deeply homophobic. LGBs must, as a matter of survival, reassert their identity and end the sham of LGBT.

  8. Who are these people?

  9. They're both the worst, so...

  10. Jackson, do you have any proof or are you just a bigot (the burden of proof is on you)?

  11. They're both terrible people but I'd say he's the worse of the two so I quite enjoyed her ripping into him while he laughed like an idiot.

  12. Count me as one of the few that thinks Handler is not nearly as stomachable as PM. Both have their heads up their asses but Handler has a mean streak a mile wide while PM is just a British gabby idiot, but not necessarily mean 24/7.

  13. @Johnny, I think I can see your point, but I have opposite tastes. Handler is mean, but Morgan is incompetent, but that's way worse.

    She's right in this interview: if you're hosting a talk show, it's YOUR responsibility to make the show interesting. If you don't know how to conduct an interview to have your guest feel engaged and say interesting things, then you don't really have a business being a host. And Morgan really is bad at this job; he apparently doesn't even understand his own responsibility. Handler is leagues ahead of him in terms of professional ability.

  14. It's amusing to see people bash Chelsea Handler but then revere Kathy Griffin.

  15. Handler has no business giving advice. She is terrible, has no market beyond the local, and without her network of contacts has no reach. Piers has certain things to learn, and was far more gracious than she deserved.

  16. Love her - he deserved it.

  17. Why do people here have a beef with chelsea? what did she do?

    Posted by: Sean | Mar 11, 2014 10:56:49 PM

  18. Why am I not surprised uber-b*tch Handler would take the opportunity to kick a man when he's down? She looks like she'd have made a great guard at Auschwitz.

  19. Piers is bad. That woman is much worse, and not very funny either.

  20. I love Chelsea! So much of her image is an act. I've heard nothing but good things about her from the people who have worked for her. She helps them go on to bigger things and has them back on to promote their books, appearances, shows and other projects. Compare that to Joan Rivers who treats the people who work for her like crap. Piers Morgan is a horrible person who supervised the phone-hacking of celebrities and others including a missing girl (who falsely believed she might be alive because it seemed someone...maybe the girl herself...was checking her messages. It wasn't. It was tabloid hacks acting with the full knowledge of everyone they worked for. Piers Morgan is the lowest form a scum and in what's left of the journalism profession that's saying something. He deserved to be talked to that way. How do people like Morgan and Barbara Walters get these reputations for being great interviewers when they are terrible. Someone off the street would do at least as good a job.

  21. She is so right; he is one of the most irritating interviewers around; rarely listens, constantly interrupts, loses the thread - gives the impression he's striving for a preconceived goal or answer and it doesn't matter what his interviewers have to say. Usually...

  22. While Handler is the least funny person on TV, Morgan is just plain horrific. A real botch from CNN to begin with a horrible BORE.

    Good riddance to him, it couldn't have happened soon enough. As for Handler, I will just continue ignoring her.

  23. I have no idea why he had a job in the first place; he's a terrible person and terrible at that job. I actually swore a few years ago never to watch anything with him on it, and so far, a few seconds of that clip was it. I have no plan on starting - ever.

  24. She is right, he is a terrible interviewer. I can remember his interviews with gun rights supporters = him constantly shouting and not letting his guests finish a sentence.

  25. They're both just having fun with each other, it's not like they're fighting. And she's right, she a comedian, so she does what comedians do. Let's move on.
