Chelsea Handler Calls Piers Morgan a “Terrible Interviewer” While on His Show
In the middle of a press tour for her latest book, Chelsea Handler appeared on Piers Morgan Live, a CNN show hosted by the villain in a modern-day Dickens novel. Handler was apparently peeved about Morgan spending an entire commercial break on his phone, so when he asked her about her Twitter habits, Handler took him to task, calling him a “terrible interviewer.”
“You can’t even pay attention for 60 seconds. You’re a terrible interviewer,” Handler said.
Things got more heated when Morgan suggested that Handler was not interesting enough to keep his attention. “This is your show, you have to pay attention to the guest that you invited on your show,” she said. “It doesn’t matter how interesting I am. You signed up for this show.” The two continued to bicker, with Handler soon shutting him down: “Well maybe that’s why your job is coming to an end.” CNN recently canceled Morgan’s show, it will air for the last time this month.
Handler and Morgan quickly moved on, but Handler took one more swipe at Morgan when he asked her if she would change anything about her life. “It would be spending this hour differently.”
