The Handler Morgan fight from late night has become the talk of the town, as talk show hosts Chelsea Handler and Piers Morgan recently bickered. The verbal sparring went so far as the comedian Handler calling the CNN talk show host, Morgan, "obnoxious" and even making a vulgar, suggestive comment towards him. Has a new feud in late night been ignited?
The US Magazine website reported on Jan. 31 that the arguing happened on Wednesday, Jan. 30 between Handler and Morgan. The back-and-forth jabs happened during Chandler's show "Chelsea Lately," with Handler starting it off with "What are you looking at?" before Piers had even sat down.
"Oh, you're so annoying. You're so obnoxious -- you wonder why everybody hates you! I specifically covered up so you couldn't look at me and undress me with your molester eyes."
After Morgan teased that Chelsea must have "had plastic surgery or a makeover" because she looked hot, Chelsea fired back:
Piers kept at it with Chelsea even suggesting that when he's on the show, Handler is typically "really hungover in a very unprofessional way." Chelsea attempted to discuss the second anniversary of Morgan's CNN show, but the conversation once again headed back towards the verbal jabs. It eventually hit the point where Handler told Morgan "You can suck my a--."
It was all in good fun though as the audience seemed into the back-and-forth jokes between Chelsea and Piers, with Morgan also chuckling at some of Chelsea's comments towards him. Check out a YouTube clip here of the exchange from this past Wednesday.
"Chelsea Lately" airs weeknights on E! via Cox Cable channel 60, while Piers Morgan's CNN primetime show airs on CNN via Cox Cable channel 33.
