I Might Actually Be Sticking Up For Katie Price


I think all of us would agree that we can't stand Katie Price. Well, Chelsea Handler can be added to the list and also says that "She was incredibly stupid so that was very entertaining for me. I try to treat the people who deserve respect with respect. The ones that don't, really don't know any difference anyway."

Chelsea had interviewed Katie and had no idea beforehand what or who Katie really was. In an interview with The Sun, Chelsea said, "We had Katie Price on and I didn't know she was equivalent of our Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton or that kind of person." This is where I kind of started questioning Chelsea. Isn't Chelsea's job to interview people? Doesn't she work for an entertainment network? Let us be clear that I don't like Katie Price. Can't stand her. To me she doesn't seem all that stupid. Entitled? Yes. A pain in the ass? Absolutely. Wish she would go away? I would buy the ticket.

But she seems to come out with a million products and continues to invent new ways to stay in front of the cameras and is making a great deal of money doing so. At this point she hasn't had to resort to one on one shows with arms dealers like Paris Hilton did this weekend and is still on television and the front pages of UK newspapers almost everyday. She got paid almost $1M for four days in Australia last week and made the front page every day. That doesn't seem so stupid.

What does seem stupid is not knowing in advance who your subject was you were interviewing. If you spend two minutes reading anything about Katie Price you would know exactly who she compares to in the US so it makes me wonder what else Chelsea is missing. I like Chelsea's show most of the time but I also feel like she thinks she is better than everyone else and it comes through and keeps her from really taking off and being huge.

I agree. Claiming that she didn't know what Katie was like beforehand makes Chelsea look like the stupid one. Not a Katie Price fan but she is a lot smarter than Paris.

Especially if she knew before hand who was going to be on her show. Seems like someone wasn't doing their homework.

Too much partying, Hmmmmm.....

Love Chelsea, but she must have a research staff. I agree with EL...she could be huge, but she just has an edge that makes me uncomfortable sometimes.

ali said...

I just saw her interview with Ryan Kwanten in Australia. She was pretty rude to him after he didn't respond to some crude comments she made concerning his hot bod. It was apparent he didn't feel like being a sex symbol that day but she ignored that and got quite rude with him.

Ms Cool said...

I don't really like Chelsea so this doesn't surprise me.

RocketQueen said...

I agree completely. I call bullshit that she didn't know who Katie Price is - I think it was supposed to be another shot at showing how much she doesn't care for 'stars' like this, but it just comes off as false and trying too hard. I also dislike Katie, but c'mon, Chelsea. You knew who she was. Please.

Judi said...

Bully tactics never work. Can't see her going anywhere unless she decides to have the kind of fun in interviews that isn't at the expense of her guests.

Pookie said...

i love CH, but she's in danger of jumping the shark. her quick wit is fantastic...except when she deteriorates into gratuitous hating, which she seems to be doing more and more lately.

jax said...

i was a fan of Chelsea for a long time, now i feel she is just trading off her bitchy attitude..and not for laughs. if you want to see that done right, watch Graham Norton..and learn.

who doesn't know who Katie Price is? that just shows Chelsea is gettign out of touch, or is just lazy. BTW, Katie is not dumb, she is a very very smart lady who has parlayed being a Page 3 ho to a multimillion dollar brand....and Chelsea has a lil show on E. now who's the stupid one?

jax said...

ps...Chelsea's tights look like she walked through a mud pit beofre coming on tv. bad.

Mr. T said...

Chelsea's comments don't surprise me. I am sure she knew who Price was before the interview - someone one must have handed her a paragraph on her or at least described her to Chelsea. I am not surprised because I have always thought Chelsea was a no talent hack who only has a career because she was sleeping with the head of the network. I interpret her saying she didn't know who Price was as a lame attempt to put Price down. If Price is such a nobody, what does that say about your show? To me, Chelsea is never funny, always seems ill prepared & nervous, and substitutes dumb mean spirited comments for her lack of funny material.

Miss X said...

Is Chelsea Handler wearing the world's ugliest/weirdest pantyhose? WTH?

Amit! said...

Chelsea sometimes makes jabs at her show on the E! Network as well, going on to, well, somewhat insult the network.

I wonder if she's trying to have her show axed on purpose or something?

[For the record...I'm actually not sure who Katie Price is, either.]

strawberrygirl said...

I watch Chelsea's show every night and have been a fan since it first was on. I must say though she knew exactly who Katie Price was and I found it disrespectful that she kept asking what she did. Even if she didn't really know, how hard is it to wikipedia her name?

ajurk said...

i love chelsea, but her career is going nowhere and she will be forever stuck on E! because of her ego. i would love for her interviews to be longer, but i know that cant happen because a lot of the time, she takes over the interview and just talks. during her interviews, you can tell who she is friends with and who she did zero research on. and the ryan kwanten interview was horrific. chelsea, he didnt want to take his shirt off, move on...

JustJenn said...

I hate Chelsea.

whole lotto luv said...

I'm not going to feel sorry for Katie Price, because the homework thing goes both ways. KP should have known very well how harshly CH can treat her guests.

But for Katie, all publicity is good. I don't think she cares who thinks she is stupid.

Alice D Millionaire said...

I haven't heard Katie Price complaining about how Chelsea treated her but maybe I missed it?

Christina said...

I liked Chelsea Handler initially, but her schtick got old real fast. It's obvious to me that her career is 100% due to her sleeping with the boss. And, holy smokes, for a woman in her early thirties she looks like she was "rode hard and put away wet." A network bigwig should be able land a piece hotter and/or funnier than that.

Anonymous said...

I totally agree with you, Enty.

I may not like Katie Price, but no one can deny that she is business savvy!

mooshki said...

What everyone above me said.

Anonymous said...

Seems like she was insisting she didn't know who Katie was, to try and put Katie in her place.

And may I say, Chelsea sure doesn't live up to the hype surrounding her show. I used to kinda like her until I watched an entire episode.

libby said...

Maybe Chelsea's trying to pretend she doesn't read Dlisted.

How could she be do celebrity jokes for a living and NOT read Dlisted? Please.

Helen said...

Extremely disturbed by Christina Penn's sexist remarks. While I do agree with most people here on this subject comments like that are not okay.

YSBFF said...

Wasn't one of Katie Price's shows on E? She was on the same network.

Genesis said...

Sexist? Or truth, she does look rough tho, sometimes I think she's about to have a meltdown in the middle of the round table time and try to eat chuey.

I was neutral on price, I don't really care what she does but I saw her interview, if she didn't know what she walked into then fail on her but if she did she kind of carried herself nicely cuz handler was being annoying up the ass and she didn't let it bother her. I would've made a snide remark back but hey thats me.
Well wait, I wouldnt go on her to show begin with lol

B626 said...

Chelsea does not love her job anymore it's very obvious the daily grind of rehashing gossip and adding flair to it is starting to wear thin. It shows- especially with guests like this.
Chelsea's No.1 job is staying sober before the show-so much harder in Australia!

Selock said...

I've never enjoy Chelsea's show. I think she's mean-spirited and ignorant. I don't like people who seem to have little positive to say, or anything to stand for besides tearing others down. It's boring and played out and at the end of the day, she's just not clever enough about her slams to be worth watching.

I am not a huge fan of Kathy Griffin, either, but at least I'll give her that she takes positions and makes some genuinely hilarious observations/cracks.

tflamb said...

How can anyone be surprised. The only thing on air talent (including news "reporters") know is what is on the teleprompter. If it isn't dumped into their short term memory by a producer before the segment, on their notecards, or that prompter they are lost little fools. About the only exception to that rule seems to be Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

MCH said...

I honestly had no idea who Katie Price was when I would read stuff about her on blogs. I had to Google her. I agree she probably should have "prepped" better but I'm sure that was part of her schtick (sp) of hating on socialites given her hatred of Paris Hilton.

r said...

Shark. Jumped.

Wil said...

Maybe she is too distracted from her divorce. Hum .. wonder how that will effect her show on Comcast owned E!

Jasmine said...

WHatever- Chelsea is sarcastic and bitchy and I love her sense of humor. I agree it can be biting at times and akward but did you guys see the interview with Katie Price?! While it was kinda rude that chelsea obviously had NO idea who she was I thought Katie was rude and came off as a self involved privalaged bitch and I loved that Chelea totally called her on it. I swear, sometimes CHelsea would try to be nice and Katie would say something about her 7 horses and money and blah blah blah and Chelsea would respond accordingly. But then again I also liked when David Letterman called Paris Hilton on her shit too, and many people said that was too harsh.

uofazwildkitty said...

Playboy cover = jumped shark

Genesis said...

lol UoA

c17 said...

Are you F'n kiddin' me?

EVERYONE OF YOU posting has has crap-all to say about KP - and that especially includes you ENT.

All of you are a bunch of hypocrites - you all talk shit about everyone until the tide turns. You all want to jump on to the ship that's not going under.

I have no dog in this fight, but the rest of you are bound to lose. Good luck with that, losers.

jax said...

wtf are you on about now? come to a gossip site and chastize us for gossiping....brilliant.

you might want to head on over to hollywood tuna and lecture them about T&A next.

Kimber said...

Just watched it on youtube, wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Anonymous said...

I do agree that Chelsea seems to be coasting through her show these days but it is still refreshing to have someone point out Katie Price's irrelevance and not give her the free ride that every British chat show gives her. The only reason IMO that there is so much coverage of Price in the press is more an indication of media laziness than her doing anything noteworthy.

If Handler is now kinda repetitive, she is still infinitely more interesting that Jordan who is one trick short of being a one trick pony.

RocketQueen said...

well said, jax - like seriously - I can't even figure out what she's trying to say or why she's bothering to say it.

Liza said...

Chelsea Handler came to the restaurant I work at when she was in Sydney. She hosted something or other and it was apparently filmed. She spent like an hour in the bathroom in tears instead of hosting. Because she got dumped. By cell phone. Again. Niiiiiiiiiiiiiice.
