Shrieky comedian Kevin Hart was dropped out as the 2019 Oscar host because he refused to apologize for some homophobic tweets from his past that came back up (not to mention how he refused to say he was wrong for his son’s cowboys and Indians-themed birthday party). The Academy told Kevin to acknowledge and apologize for the tweets or get the fuck out. Kevin refused, saying he had already addressed the tweets in the past. So Kevin got the fuck out, and then apologized. Maybe he didn’t want to jeopardize a future Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards hosting gig. Kevin’s friend, the extra extra extra Nick Cannon, came to his defense by posting past tweets from several well-known female comedians that used the f-bomb and subtly suggested that Hollywood is full of hypocrisy. Well, DUH.
Here’s a real yucky one for you! It must be Friday. Jason Bateman and his wife Amanda Anka have confirmed a story about hotelier André Balazs being an alleged dirty rotten pussy grabber. Not for nothin’, André, who owns The Standard hotels and the Chateau Marmont, used to date both Uma Thurman and Chelsea Handler. Say what now?
As for the “why,” that’s still up for debate. The Hollywood Reporter says that Chelsea Handler’s Netflix talk show Chelsea is done after two seasons. The show, which went from a thrice-weekly format to once-a-week in its second season, has reportedly been canceled by Netflix. “Ha, who’s the failure now???” probably thought the E! Network. But if you ask Chelsea Handler, it’s not like that. She chose to leave.
Back when David Letterman and Jay Leno ruled late night television, Jay probably got the bigger names because the bigger names were all a bunch of soft-ass bitches who couldn’t take the heat. Jay would stroke their arm, tell them how pretty they were, and that he thought Gigli was an Oscar contender. Dave was a big asshole, and it’s a miracle his booking team could land a guest by the end of his 6000+ episode run.
Rachel hates Monica! Just kidding, who could not love a filler-free face like that? However, if Radar is to be believed, Jennifer Aniston does go into an Oedipus Rex RAGE on her eyes when she turns on Netflix looking to catch up on Stranger Things and finds Chelsea Handler’s show instead. The last thing she wants to do is look at that broad humble gloat about her famous friends, because she has been BANISHED from Team Jen (the ORIGINAL squad of all the A-List squads). A source close to Chelsea (definitely her old sidekick, Chuy) said, “Jennifer found out that Chelsea was spilling secrets about her marriage and talking behind her back.” Continue reading
There are two things that will always make Chelsea Handler’s heart skip a beat: hearing the words “Can I top up your drink ma’am?” and being given an opportunity to publicly drag Angelina Jolie. And that’s just what she did during an appearance last night’s Watch What Happens Live! in Los Angeles.
An audience member named Eric, or as Chelsea knows him – “blessed angel sent from petty bitch heaven” – asked her what she would say to Angelina if they were stuck in an elevator. Chelsea probably had the FCC nervous that she was about to release two full minutes worth of expletives. But Chelsea said that she wouldn’t say a thing.
“I would just…I would just look up. Exactly what people do in elevators, you know when you fake look at the number because you just don’t want to make eye contact? That would be exactly the elevator ride. And then I’d go, ‘Hey!’ as I walked out.”
If Hell freezes over and Chelsea does one day find herself riding an elevator with her favorite “fucking lunatic,” I hope she’s prepared in the event her plan backfires. I can only imagine how many drinks she’ll need if Angelina chases after her and offers an autograph. “I know you were too nervous to ask. Now, who should I make this out to?”
Here’s Chelsea at the Netflix Comedy Panel For Your Consideration event in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.
