Blind Item #3

This A list female talk show host needs rehab. The amount of drugs and drink needed to satisfy her everyday is getting out of control and she is getting harder and harder to handle or manage or keep sober long enough to do her show.

Bet she really went on a bender after Piers turned the tables on her.

Bluevelvet said...

Kathy Lee, joke.

Melissa Coutts said...

Erin got it...I think handle was the clue. No surprise really.

prolixe said...

Handler FTW.

If she's such an incredible b* b/c of the booze & drugs, I hope she gets well soon.

If she's just a b* who just likes booze & drugs, karma, baby.

{Public service message: some celebs rub some people the wrong way. Not liking Chelsea Handler does not make one anti-woman.}

Derek Harvey said...

I like Chelsea Handler, thats the first time I've said I like someone here in I dont know how long lol ---she often jokes about being a drunk but there is always a deeper truth in that type of joke. She has talent and charisma---hope she can battle her demons

PuggleWug said...

Sometimes I'm fine with Handler, sometimes she annoys the piss out of me. I think she's an acquired taste. Nothing anti woman about not liking her!

PARangersGirl said...

Yep Chelsea H. Wish it was Kathie Lee though.

liteNOTSObrite said...

I enjoy Chelsea Handler. I have no probs being one of the few here at CDAN that do.

retropian said...

Oprah!

ABlake said...

Judge Judy

Nah, it's Handler. She needs to get help or she'll lose that show.

Crystal Jones said...

I don't hate or like her. But she looks pretty skanky all the time. She could be fresher.

MalibuBarbie said...

Chelsea Handler for the win, Alex. I saw her at Sunset Beach, André Balazs' Hotel/Bar/Restaurant this Summer, slumped down behind the DJ booth, swiqqing straight vodka from the bottle. It was funny and sad at the same time. I'm a big fan, and hope she gets help.

Anna Nonymous said...

Chelsea Handler. And I can't stand her drunken bitch shtick. She's rude, obnoxious, unprofessional, goes for the low brow most insulting/irrating/grating comments/humor. I like low brow humor, but not when it's done in an insulting and vicious way.

Ian said...

Nancy Grace (just because she is a first-class cunt).

+1 Ian!

But, she's Jen's bff! Poor poor thing.

smash said...

Kathy Lee ;)

Marie Osmond!
:-D
(sorry, but I couldnt resist!)

Tuxedo Cat said...

I used to really like Chelsea, but she's just become plain mean. Maybe she always was, but I just couldn't see it bc I like Jennifer Aniston.

Tru Leigh said...

Chelsea was just on Kathy Griffith's show. She was absolutely rude and obnoxious. I vote for her.

warecat said...

Absolutely can not stand her. When did she stop wearing makeup? Cuz she needs to start with that. Many women look drop dead gorgeous w/o makeup, but not this b*. *ends rant*

Sarah said...

Yeah, she's funny but very abrasive. An acquired taste.

Opie said...

But when she was on Kathy G's show she was so sober compared to Chris Noth who was embarrassingly drunk. I watch Chelsea all the time and have not noticed she not being able to keep it together. Well I have 17 unwatched on my DVR so maybe I have not watched in a bit.

S.joy said...

More than likely this is Chelsea. Just to throw another name out there, how about Wendy Williams? She definitely has a history of drug abuse.

katydid said...

I vote Chelsea. I love her books they're an easy vacation read and very funny. Don't really watch her show anymore she's now just mean sounds like her for the blind.

figgy said...

I'm just glad this isn't Ellen. :-).

jennifer hansen said...

i love when ross mathews hosts chelsea's show, i just love him! throw her in rehab for a few months and let him host

lisa said...

I'm gonna throw Rachel Ray's name into the mix.

Tina Mallette said...

Sorry I like Chelsea too

comedians are not supposed to be nicey nice unless you are Ellen or Jerry Seinfeld, and she employs so many of her stand up brethren she is to be applauded


You can't be that sharp witted if you are drunk or if she is wow wouldn't want to cross her sober

auntliddy said...

Chelsea is funny, but after coupla weeks of watching her i was like okay, im done. Kind of one trick pony.

Fijigrrl said...

Rachel ray

Where's Shelly? said...

Martha Stewart?

Henriette said...

I want to say Katie Couric, but I'm sure it's Chelsea Handler. I liked her until I read one of her books. She needs a ghost writer stat! She's one of those people who thinks she is smarter than what she is.

Basil said...

This MUST be Chelsea. I like her but can see why some might not. Her sense of humour is an acquired taste. If you have read any of her books, you probably know that drinking is not her problem. I think she is a sociopath. She might call them "pranks", but some of the stuff she pulls on her friends is sadistic. I wouldn't want to be her "friend" because I don't think she is capable of being that invested in someone else other than herself. And THAT is what makes her funny to me.

Tina Mallette said...

well she certainly hangs with a very hard partying crowd

SweetGeorgiaBrown said...

I just lol'd in real life :)

I knew Chelsea about a decade ago before she was really famous, and I can personally attest to the fact that she is a great human being and a loyal friend. She has set up college trust funds for every single one of her nieces and nephews. How many of us can say we've done that?

digbydog said...

See my comment above. She's a really nice person, actually, with a big heart and a huge work ethic.

feraltart said...

Agree with it being Chelsea & I like her too.

Sherry said...

Same here. Love Chelsea but my first thought was her for this blind. I seriously love how she's so rah rah with her girlfriends or just females in general when she interviews them. I thought she held her own with Piers. And no shade to those who feel otherwise. Everyone looks at things differently and it's okay to give your POV.

witwritergirl said...

I like her too. I know it's not highbrow humor but something about her just cracks me up. Hope the person gets help.

Wine Dames said...

I love Chelsea, but she's been gone quite a bit. I think this is her. Dave Grohl is filming in her place all of next week. I'm good with that. :)

TV Junkie said...

I know there's a lot of Chelsea hate out there, but go to iTunes & download Marc Maron's WTF podcast episode with Chelsea. It's free. After listening to that, I now know that Chelsea is a ridiculously generous person who helps a LOT of people. Seriously. If you don't like Chelsea after that, it's on you! Just kidding, of course, but I'd be shocked! I really would like to be her friend!

Mango said...

Rachael Ray, the blowjob queen.

Cee Kay said...

WOW, lots of Chelsea love out there! I can't see it myself. She's mean-spirited and not especially funny or even insightful. I just can't bring myself to care about her.

BTW, Giada is the blowjob queen. Not Rachael. She doesn't even go to the swinger clubs with her hubby!

All about Eve said...

@digbydog, if I made the money she does, of course I would and good for her for taking care of her family but she still comes across as mean and bitter.

Jennmcn said...

I immediately thought Wendy Williams, I don't know why because Chelsea Handler is a much better guess. Chelsea looks about 15 years older than she says she is. I think it's a combo of lying, booze and drugs.

hag said...

theres a lot of perfectly nice, good people that are addicted to drugs and alcohol.

ps- even if Chelsea is a generous person and isn't the subject of this blind, she's pretty obnoxious regardless.

Anyone can do Chelsea Handler's act:

1. Talk about how much you like vodka.
2. Make bitchy comments about celebrities and try to pass it off as "wit".
3. Throw in some Yiddish words.
4. Use a Hispanic midget as a prop.
5. If all else fails, rely on the comics on your round table to make the jokes. Ta Da!

Actually, I've heard her early books were good and I know she was a very good guest on Loveline, but that was early on. Her act was always limited, but now it's just tired. And to clarify, I do think the bitchiness is her act and not necessarily how she is in real life.

Lisa said...

Is Chelsea A list? Personally, I like her, especially with Ross.

discoflux said...

Knowing someone 15 years ago and knowing them as they stand in the present can leave a lot of room for disparity. It's quite possible that she could've spiraled at this point to uphold the personality she portrays. While it's wonderful that she set her nieces and nephews up for college, it doesn't negate the possibility of a personal crisis. Good people hit rough patches all the time.

Mooshki said...

I'm glad that people were able to express their liking for Chelsea without getting mob attacked. CDaN has become a dangerous place lately! Can't stand her myself, but variety is the spice of life!

califblondy said...

I thought she was kinda funny with Chris Noth.

JSierra said...

Chelsea Lover here but I am also tired of her mean girl jokes. She can be funny, she needs to realize she can do it without making everyone around her feel like shit. I feel so bad for Brad Womack sometimes, the shit she says about him on national TV and in books is hurtful

LiteraryLauraEtc said...

I thought Wendy Williams too

Comma Chaser said...

I say Chelsea. One can be generous and an alcoholic at the same time.

prolixe said...

@Mooshki, right on!

Sherry said...

WHAT? Dave Grohl is guest host? Oh baby count me in!

Count Jerkula said...

Chloe Moritz isn't a talk show host or A list, so this is clearly Elizabeth Hasselbeck.

Autumn said...

I can totally see this being Chelsea which makes me pretty sad actually. I've been a fan of hers for years and have even got the chance to meet her once after one of her shows for one of her book tours. She was really funny and nice. My husband bought me the tickets and was there with me for the meet and greet and I think he was slightly uncomfortable so she joked with him and really chatted him up. I always hoped a lot of her drinking and drug humor was exaggerated but I guess not!

Pig Tracks said...

Since Rosie O'Donnell is out of the talk-show business, I can't hazard a guess.

Casey said...

Not sure if Wendy Williams is considered an A list talk show host:

"During her hot-topics segment, Wendy Williams, had an emotional moment, while discussing the death of Whitney Houston. Wendy discussed her own battles with substance abuse (crack and alcohol)"

Oprah would definitely be considered A list. Not sure if she still has a talk show, but she still does interviews, most recently Lance Armstrong.

The only reason I don't think it is Handler is because they just gave her a new multi-million dollar studio makeover, which I doubt the studio would have done if they were concerned about controlling her.

Agent**It said...

mkrobb, I was trying to say ..."no wit" sums it up.

smash said...

Oh count!!! I was just whispering sweet nothing's about you on another post! I have missed you wit of late. Have a good weekend! :)

smash said...

Your**

Christopher Cruz said...

I don't think Judge Judy NEEDS any help from drugs and alcohol. She does a good enough job of being a rude, shrill, nasty little bitch on her own.

Christopher Cruz said...

Sometimea it's the people we least suspect- so maybe it IS Ellen. We don't know ;)

Christopher Cruz said...

Nah- waaaay too obvious!!!!!!!!

Christopher Cruz said...

Amen- you guys would NOT want to come to one of my shows.

sparklynan said...

Kathie Lee...you know that old bitty is mixing RX drugs w alcohol, have you seen her show???

Christopher Cruz said...

Bahahahahaha!!!

Peter said...

Girls, she's all talk, that's her schtick. I met her at a meet and great after a show. She was sweet, sober and surprisingly intelligent. I'm sure she induldges but as much as she works, I don't see this being her. I say Mrs Giffords its the bill.

Count Jerkula said...

@ Smash: Thank you. I have been a good boy and only partaken in a single beer so far. Tomorrow I'll be jumping ahead on the weeks work in the event I am severely hung over Monday. I never know when I'll get home from a Super Bowl party. Last year it was noon the next day.

Which post were you whispering about me in? One of my many flaws is vanity.

Sherry said...

Perhaps Casey, but her contact is up in 2014 so not too far off if they only film for 5-6 months.

smash said...

Count- I think the bieber post. I just said its been tame around her and I miss your wit to spice up the conversation. Who are you cheering on tomorrow?

smash said...

Around here** jeesh.

Mangobars said...

Wait, my dog's name is digby. No joke. If he can secretly type, he needs to get a job.

Tatyana said...

Another PSA: not liking one or sevwral women dose not make you anti-women. Holding them to a *much* higher standard then men does. So does despising a woman because she "stopped wearing makeup".

Marty McFly said...

She was "on". She is NOT sweet. In fact, the complete opposite. The people in Andre's town can't stand her

Maximus said...

What Tuxedo Cat said. She's gotten way meaner over the years.

I still want this to be Kathie Lee, but it's likely Chelsea.

Count Jerkula said...

I have no clue about the winner of the game. Both teams are evenly matched, solid defenses & running games, also big play ability from the passing attacks. SF has a QB who is hot right now, Balt has a QB that has been on a slow ascension to being a superstar.

That brings me to "which defense can make a big play to swing the momentum of the game." In that match up, I'll have to take Baltimore. Future Hall of Famer and tremendous ball hawk Ed Reed against a QB that has only started a handful of games. Hopefully if given the opportunity, Reed can hold on to the ball because Kaepernick really zings it around.

So I guess I think Baltimore will win, but certainly not enough to put money on it. I am in a couple modest block pools and will probably just root for scoring. I don't love or hate either team, so it is tough to drum up emotional investment.

digbydog said...

I just find it amusing that people without any knowledge of the person feel so comfortable judging them so completely. As if.

discoflux said...

Digby - It's the nature of the gossip beast.

smash said...

Count- well. You have made some good points there. I grew up near San Francisco so I know I will be cheering them on. If only the Seahawks could be playing today!!! :(

Dolly72 said...

I enjoyed Chelsea's books, but cannot stand her talk show:( Hopefully she gets some help...

Count Jerkula said...

I've never been a Seahawks fan, but Wilson is a talented and exciting QB. Their future is bright.

smash said...

Count- I was over Hasselback and think the team deserves to be rewarded. They did awesome this year and the new QB seems like a really great leader/team player. I am excited for next year.

warecat said...

Haha! I never said I "despise" Handler because she "stopped wearing makeup", her comedy sucks, she acts like a complete bitch, & I was stating my opinion, that she looks horrible w/o makeup. So when you make another PSA about being anti-women, make sure you understand the statement made about something & someone before quoting them next time.

prolixe said...

@Mangobars, if your dog can type, quit your job and get him on Leno, stat! (Digby is an adorable name, btw!)

As the author of the original PSA, let me just say that it was made in response to someone who implied that anyone who doesn't like Chandler's humour is OK with guys having the same humor, which is BS, at least on my part.

Someone rubbing you the wrong way has nothing to do with what they're packing 'twixt their nethers. (Well, unless it does, haha.)

"holding women to a *much* higher standard"? I hold the people I know, respect, and/or admire to a higher standard, not a talk show host. Hell, I think Barbara Walters has her own not inconsiderable share of b* but the whole world loves her. It's not a double standard, it's a matter of pure and simple OPINION.

PS: I think Kathy Griffin is hilarious. She's snarky without being mean, and she does some really stupid stuff (hands off the Silver Fox!), but she doesn't rub me the wrong way. She looks like crap without makeup and even jokes about it. Maybe her humour's a lot like Chelsea's and I just don't realize it because she doesn't rub me the wrong way like Chelsea does.

So.... opinion.

V said...

@Smash as a Hawks fan, how can you be rooting for SFO?! Noooooo! Just kidding!

And I am excited for this fall...GO HAWKS!!

Count Jerkula said...

Y'all are lucky, I am a Jets fan. We are 2 years away from having HOPE much less A CHANCE.

smash said...

Count- I thought you were up here in the PAC West. Didn't Jets win a super bowel a few years ago? The Seahawks haven't been this close since Hasselback first came on he scene. So glad he is gone and I am really happy with our new coach.

Count Jerkula said...

Nah, I am North East. If you consider 1969 a few years ago, then yes. Sadly I was not alive to see that. The greatest highlight a Jet has had during my lifetime was Namath making that poor broad cringe while drunkenly hounding her for a kiss.

I've been there Joe. I felt the pain of that rejection many times. Buck up Champ. Couple more drinks will erase the memory and lower your standards. You'll get a kiss before closing time.

smash said...

Ahhhh. They went to Super Bowl in 2010 but didn't win. That's what I was thinking of.

Count Jerkula said...

They lost the AFC championship game 2x to Indy and Pitt in 2010 and 2011, respectively. Jets haven't been to the Super Bowl since that 1969 game. Last 2 years they have started the downward spiral as they have been lousy at evaluating talent and been misguided in extending some contracts.

I knew this season was doomed as soon as they brought in T-bo. Reports now indicate they will try to trade him before releasing him. At this point I don't think a Canadian football team would trade a dish of poutine for him. Maybe they could trade him to an Australian rules team for a couple Crocodile Dundee VHS tapes.

smash said...

There is really nothing more repulsive to me than a sports player who think they are a shot shit celebrity. Play good and you get paid.

Lelaina Pierce said...

Dave already hosted once before and was great. I'm looking forward to it.

Lelaina Pierce said...

This has to be Chelsea, although I'm not sure I believe she's going through some new downward spiral. I thought I was the only person here that liked Chelsea. Not just her by herself but I enjoy her show. The round table comedians are my favorite part and have introduced me to a lot of new comedian. I watch/listen/have seen a ton of stand up and I honestly don't think she is any meaner than most comedians out there. She has def said stuff that made me cringe, but most comedians do. I also think comedy is subjective. There are some people out there that think Weird Al and the guy with the puppets are hilarious, but to each their own. I'm glad to hear some inside info regarding her family, especially since she is so often demonized for hating children b/c she is childless.

Henriette said...

@AllAboutEve
That's what I was going to say! If you're rich like Handler, sure you can afford to send everyone to college. How come Chelsea doesn't go?

Lelaina Pierce said...

@prolixe - I have seen people (here on CDaN and elsewhere) make comments about that. She readily admits she'd make a terrible mother, hence her being so adamant about being child-free. And I LOVE STFU Parents blog. Someone from CDaN was the one who first introduced me to it. :)

Poop Taster said...

rikki lake.

digbydog said...

When's the last time you met her, Marty?

RocketQueen said...

Heee I think that was me, Lelaina?

Lelaina Pierce said...

^ It was you! :-)

FalseProfit said...

Who cares. Booze is her brand. She celebrates failure, so we shouldn't care when she falls on her face. She's a total slob and she'd not even slightly funny.
