I thought it was kind of known in the indsutry that she''s bi? \
She''s certainly hinted around at it on her show, but I don''t know if that''s just to play to the gay community or not.\
Craig Ferguson gives out massive hints that he''s bi on his show all the time. I know he''s married and probably leans straight, but I wish he would just actually come out.
Everyone is bi.
No, everyone is not bi. And, it doesn''t help bi-visibility to say that.
I''m pretty sure he''s at least bi, R13. He got a little handsy with one of my male friends a few years back - either he''s extremely comfortable with touching men he''s just met, or he found my friend attractive enough to grope.
I think she''s fabulous! And the people who work on her show seem to really adore her. She takes them all on great vacations to places like Cabo and spends a ton of money on them, so she must be pretty damn nice to work with.
On his show last year on Bi Pride Day (September 23rd), Craig did a bit in his monologue about being a "bisexual Leprechaun". Later in the show he said he''s "not actually a Leprechaun".
>>> R15 No, everyone is not bi. And, it doesn''t help bi-visibility to say that.\
R15 , Are you serious? you are complaining about R14 and look at the you wrote on R13, R15 and R18. You think that''s helping bi-visibility ?
R19 Everyone is not bi. Chelsea Handler and Craig Fergeson very likely may be. It''s called evidence.
She did not just get divorced - she broke up with her boyfriend who is a CEO in TV, I think - they had been living together for about four years.
I''ve met her and she''s tiny, tasteless, gross and very un-funny off script. Painful!
Her collapse is COMPLETE
So is Jo Koy gay? He pings and Chelsea mentions it every time he is on the show.
R21. Read R12 and pay attention.
Met her when she came to Australia. Bizarre looking in real life. She has the waxy look of a plastic surgery victim. OK figure but not deserving of a mag cover or Playboy layout.
thanks r25. \
more details r22.
r23, he has a son. He seems very gay, Chelsea seems gay to. But it seems like they have a crush on each other, it''s kinda weird.
She jokes about being bi or lesbian all the time. And has said (non-jokingly)on a number of occasions that she''s had sex with women more than once. She''s never really clear on how often.
...but she likes men too
i know friends of hers who love her. never met her though.
Why is her hair and makeup ever changing? They can''t seem to settle on a look for her.
She is crass and loud. And I don''t find her funny at all.
R30, she chopped her hair off and it looked terrible.\
Then and now, she experiements with hair extensions while it grows out.\
Short hair and weird short hair-do''s are very unflattering on her.
Her bi-side really shows when she interviews Jenny McCarthy, Mary McCormack and Robin Wright. At least she has good taste in women. (Insert obvious joke here).
"So is Jo Koy gay? He pings and Chelsea mentions it every time he is on the show."\
He''s straight, its kinda a running joke that Chelsea doesn''t believe he''s straight, just for fake arguments. Kinda like how she singles out Loni Love whenever a black person is in the news. Chris Frangoli is a different story. He told her in confidence (off air), that he wasn''t sure about his sexuality. Told her he went to a gay bar with male strippers, but didn''t like the way they shoved their junk in his face. She told the story on air, when he was on the panel, and it was quite awkward. He tried to laugh it off, reminding her he told her that in confidence. She replied that anything said to her is fair game. He wasn''t back on the panel for about a month. She was out of line, let him come out if & when he''s ready.
love her. best show in late night tv.
She''s a half Jewish, half Mormon product of Livingston, New Jersey.\
Do you really expect her to be Grace Kelly?
R15 doesn''t represent the bi community. \
She represents the humorless cunt and \
Hint: "Everyone is not bi" is not the same as "Not everyone is bi."
Chris Frangoli is hawt.\
She won me over by measuring her and Jenny McCarthy''s horse face.
[quote]either he''s extremely comfortable with touching men he''s just met, or he found my friend attractive enough to grope.\
Excuse me? I was just adjusting my shoulder bag.
She is too crass
She is intelligent and raunchy and fun...love her
[quote]I''ve met her and she''s tiny, tasteless, gross and very un-funny off script. Painful!\
She''s unfunny on script! How are her and her guests'' witless, lame as hell jokes about unimportant celebrities and pop culture funny in the least? There are a lot of funny people here at DL, much funnier than these people. Chelsea and her guests are good representatives of what is wrong with the homogenized humor that is ever present and popular in the media.\
It just sucks and it''s low level sarcasm and obvious comebacks that aren''t even funny or amusing. It''s just fake, dumb, and tired.
Before this show there was Girls Behaving Badly, where she was hilarious. She''s great at keeping a straight face while saying the most outlandish things. I love her, and anyone who says differently can just fuck off. There you have it.
Oh, a joke about Gary Coleman said with a straight face. I''m glad that there are still outlandish and talented comedians around like Chelsea Handler.
Fire that blowsy hag and let Josh Wolf host...\
Joe K - I mean, Jen...
If you read her books, or really paid attention to the show, you would see that she is far from a dyke, and she doesn''t particularly cater to the gay audience. \
I personally think she has a dry sense of humor and 9 times out of 10 she mocks the dumbasses that come on her show to shill their latest projects. \
I really don''t even want to particularly defend her but it just blows my mind when people here think unfunny loudmouths like Margaret Cho and Joan Rivers are so fucking hilarious.
Lol. Love R45''s comment. Josh is hot but the ball cap has to go. No one cares about your hair. I want to be in between the Sklar twins for a few hours.
Josh is hot? Sorry, don''t see it.\
And I think that Chelsea is hilarious-- love her show.
She called that bald guy a faggot last night but they bleeped it. She kept going on and on about how he was a fag.
She''s quick and kinda scary, I''d be afraid to be interviewed by her. I believe she is developing a different & more mature show for the future, she implies as much. I wish her luck. A successful woman comic has not had a talk show on TV in over 25 years...and while we''re on the subject, what the fuck happened to feminism on TV?...I grew up in the 70s with woman and African Americans on TV at least a little bit Anyone remember Not for women only or Black news?...where did they go? I miss intelligent people.
viva la revolution

[quote]A successful woman comic has not had a talk show on TV in over 25 years...\
Excuse me, too?
night time talk show.
Well, I WOULDA been successful, bitches, if you''d have just watched...
I used to love her show but then my BF and I saw her at Radio City Music Hall a couple months back - her live schtick was not great. It was kind of half-baked and crude, and she hardly dished on Hollywood at all. I was ready for a more merciless, uncensored version of her E! show and it wasn''t like that at all. %0D\
Since then, and more generally, since she''s broken up with her boyfriend and started working her single status into every other punch line on her talk show, she just seems more pathetic. She used to be a lot fiercer and "above the fray."
Agree with R40 and R42!
What R5 said.
As is true with every other comedian discussed here, some people find her funny and some don''t.%0D\
There is no such thing as "NOT FUNNY" because it is all subjective!
YOUR OPINION DOES NOT NEGATE ALL OTHER OPINIONS!!
"A successful woman comic has not had a talk show on TV in over 25 years..."%0D\
[quote]A successful woman comic has not had a talk show on TV in over 25 years...\
Can we talk?
I love her irreverence toward people, especially those who are too full of themselves or just plain stupid. She''s friends with the Kartrashians but not afraid to trash them on her show for the scum they are.\
And for the record, I want to be between Josh Wolf and Chris Franjola in bed, while Jo Koy sits in a chair jacking off while watching those two studs work me over like a Waring blender. I would definitely love to help Chris explore the unknown limits of his sexuality.
[quote]Her bi-side really shows when she interviews Jenny McCarthy, Mary McCormack and Robin Wright. %0D\
And whenever she hugs a cute/hot female guest, her hands always move down to the guest''s waist when they''re embracing. That''s kinda gay (or pervy).
Agree with R5. She can''t be as unattractive as they make her look on that show.
Hey, R67, you have very good taste. Did ya see the show when CH had the panel go topless, and Wolf was on that night? He has a great body! Have tried to find photos, to no avail.
They need to do that again...
This Chris Franjola was miffed at being outed? His face did that years ago.
I recorde the show every night and it''s the perfect 22 minutes at the end of the day. Loved with Mary MacCormack the other night when MM said if she has another baby she definitely wants a gay son because she used to spend so much time in gay bars. In fact she says she was Probe Mary. Great moment. I love Chelsea most of the time. The opening monolog moments can be painful but her interaction with the panel and certain guests can be awesome. I would love to see Josh without his hat (and did you know that he Scott Wolf''s cousin?).
R70, read the thread more closely next time, love.%0D\
She is a fake,homophobe and racist. She loves black cock. She also insults women of color and makes slick underhanded remarks about them. She chased Fiddy cents until he dated her. He stopped talking to her,cut her off cold. There was a blind item about it. I think it involved herpes. Check blind gossip but, it was fron CDAN. She ran to the tabs etc.. Saying she was the one who ended the relationship. Because he was getting her too mamy expensive gifts that "creeped" her out. He was still involved with Ciara at this time on/off and a few other friends with benefits. %0D
She is a liar and also has some weird fixation with Angelina Jolie. Bashing her every chance she gets and now supposedly friends with Jennifer Anniston. I doubt Jennifer wanted her to mention how fucked up they get in Carbo. Followed by more insults towards Jolie. Including how phoney Angelina's humanitarian side is etc.. %0D
Her jokes are lame and so not funny. She's dried up and haggard looking. Not attractive in the least. %0D
She also went after Mariah Carey while hse was pregnant.Nick Cannon get into it with her on twitter. I respect him at least for defending his wife. Though he should probably ignored her. %0D
R80 seems to be evidence of how rough things can get in Hollywood, especially if you cross someone.
She almost never does her show anymore. Unbelievable. Not only does she make an obscene amount of money for her lazy, half-assed dog and pony show, but now she can't even bother to show up.
Her success (the show, the best-selling books, and guest-starring roles in movies and TV) is inexplicable to me.
Sarcasm minus intelligence and genuine wit adds up to... not much.
[quote]I adore her, but she has the worst hair, makeup, and wardrobe people in the business
I agree! I know Chelsea can look better than she does on the show.
I have meet her in person, she's very sweet and funny. Oh, and she loves her gays!
A really good comic can be crude and crass and still be hilarious. I'm thinking Chris Rock. Handler just isn't that funny. She comes across as just some pathetic high school girl who didn't get invited to the prom and she uses comedy as revenge against the prettys and populars. It's a shtick that can work if you're really good at it - she isn't.
In what world is she attractive? She has trailer park looks which are passable after a make-up person has worked their magic - like Susan Boyle was made passable. Anyone can look passable with help.
I saw her perform once (before she had the show) & ishe was pretty funny. There were two other comics who were funnier...but she was still good.
As we were leaving, she was in the lobby greeting everyone. I didn't care to meet her or have my picture taken, but from what I observed, she was very nice.
she looks like a long haul trucker
[quote]She always seems fairly indifferent to the male guests, but is ALWAYS telling the female guests how cute they are
She's awful but I guess that there are so many channels with so many time slots to fill that her "success" doesn't seem so odd.
She's unfunny, crude and ugly. Win win.
On the episode that aired Nov 21, Chris Franjola looked right into the camera and said "I have a huge penis". Then later, when Max Greenfield was on, she asked him 3 different ways if he is gay. She was very blunt. Of course, it all could have been deliberately done to give him a chance to address gay rumors.
My friend is in love with the staffer Jeff Wild. She loves the big gap between his two front teeth, and she says he has a nice body based on various skits he's done half naked.
I think she's great and watch her show every night.
She's a sincere ally to, and friend of the gay community and will tear a strip off of anyone who seriously (not jokingly) disses us. She once made Jo Koy publicly apologize on her show for some insults he made to/about gay people in his standup act.
Yes, she'll poke fun at gay people (and Asians and black people, Jews, etc.) but she knows we can take it and that we'll laugh along. It's not cruel or insulting. It's comedy.
What I also love about her is her inclusiveness. The comics and writers she employs and features are women, men, gay, straight, all races, all religions, all political stripes (Heather McDonald and Gary Valentine are dRepublicans), all body types, all levels of attractiveness and ugliness, etc. How many shows have that many women writers on the staff?
And where else could someone like Fortune Fiemster get an on-air TV job? Don't get me wrong, I love her. But I never would have heard of her had it not been for Chelsea Handler.
"A successful woman comic has not had a talk show on TV in over 25 years..."
This video showed up on Chelsea Lately show October 16th, 2012 (more details click thru). It shows a false reproduction of Sandra Bullock duplication in a nude scene in a shower. The video is false and is not Sandra Bullock. The original actress used before the pixel work was oriental, obvioius from looking at the eyes. [The technical people who did the work did this on purpose to avoid any incrimination and to protect themselves.] There was not a disclaimer placed on the video stating the video was not genuine.
Sinora Chelsea Handler. You are perceived as an insult to Judiasm and your life in the entertainment industry will be short lived, good luck with your next career pursuit. Sandra Bullock and Jamie Jones URL has much more information, thank you

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
