In one of the stranger turf wars in Hollywood history, Chelsea Handler, the blonde young’n (who I personally have always felt was “meh” on the comedy spectrum) began a feud with Joan Rivers. In an interview with Howard Stern, Handler rolled her eyes, imitated the old lady’s squeaky voice, and asked honestly, “What the f**k do I care about Joan Rivers?”
Well. Miss Rivers had something to say to that. She went on Howard Stern herself,to set the record straight on who is REALLY the diva comedienne.
“Number one, the girl made it on her back f**king the president [Handler’s ex-boyfriend, E! President Ted Herbert], we all know that, of the network. Number two, she’s fine, she’s ordinary. She’s not a genius,” Joan told the radio host with a hint of disdainful ennui. She also went on to call Handler a “drunk” who is “not particularly funny.” Rivers finished off her tirade with one piece of advice for Chelsea: “But don’t you come after me, you whore.”
Ooooh. Public tussles are interesting on their own, but when two funny ladies get involved? I’m excited to see where this goes!
