Chelsea Handler’s Feud with Heather McDonald Heats Up, McDonald Should “Really Be Scared”
It’s never a good idea to bite the hand that feeds you…
Late last week, comedian Heather McDonald revealed that she “lived in fear” while working for Chelsea Handler on Chelsea Lately. During an interview during Matt Weiss and Theo Von’s Allegedly podcast, McDonald said that while she enjoyed her time on the show, she didn’t agree with how her former friend “treated her relationships.” “She makes you feel so special, until you’re not,” McDonald lamented.
Now Handler is fighting back. While on Dirty, Sexy, Funny with Jenny McCarthy, Handler revealed why she cut McDonald off. “She exchanged stories with US Weekly, in exchange for them running her photo when she was working on my show. That’s why I stopped talking to her,” she told McCarthy. “I could have fired her,” she continued, “but instead, I just stopped spending any personal time with her.
Handler continued to become more and more upset as she spoke about her former employee, saying, “She would never say that to my face, she would only say that on the radio. She would never, cause she’s fucking scared and she should be. Now she should really be scared.”
