With all due respect to those who genuinely suffer from Celiac disease or significant, doctor-diagnosed gluten intolerance, it needs to be said: this gluten-free movement is getting out of control. Bless Charlize Theron for having the courage to speak out against gluten-free cupcakes as the “bullshit” that they are.
“Rob’s been on my mind a lot lately because we’re currently living together. No, we’re not sexually involved. My brother’s not nearly black enough for me!”
Khloe Kardashian’s guest hosting gigs for “Chelsea Lately” always include a few “whoa, did she actually just say that?” zingers, and last night was no exception. Khloe joked about Kris and Bruce’s seperation, the well-known fact that Chelsea Handler can’t stand any of her sisters, and, of course, she managed to work in a reference to having sex with her brother. As anyone who watches “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” every day at the gym (*raises hand*) knows, incest-y humor is one of Khloe’s favorite subjects, so this remark is a bit uncomfy, but not super surprising.

In his memoir, Undisputed Truth, Mike Tyson revealed that he used a fake penis with someone else’s clean urine to pass drug tests. Chelsea Handler, being Chelsea Handler, wanted to know all the details. Here’s Tyson explaining how he used a fake dick connected to a jock strap to hide his drug use, which apparently was not very difficult because the drug tester usually doesn’t stare at your junk while you submit your sample. Also, it can’t be used like a dildo. Well. That is more than I wanted to know about the penis of a convicted rapist. Er, fake penis. [YouTube.com/ChelseaLately]
Jen Kirkman is a comedian on “Chelsea Lately” and “After Lately.” This post was reprinted with permission from her Tumblr.
I’m on a Twitter strike. I am so sick of the way men on Twitter treat lady comics. And my male friends always DM me or text me or email me or talk to me about how they hate it too but they never speak up.
I am constantly tweeting about gay rights (I’m straight) and racism (I’m white). It takes two seconds and it’s part of who I am. My male comedy friends show support by suggesting that I just let it slide, “these people are idiots/trolls.” But I don’t see it as “trolls” — these are actual men who are showing me that their opinion is that a woman is acting “hysterical” when she reacts to being treated unfairly. Suddenly I am not funny or fun. My male comedy friends sometimes lament that they want to support and that they hate how they see their women friends being treated on line but “but don’t know what to say.” Keep reading »
Jennifer Aniston and Chelsea Handler are homies, so when Chelsea brought up Jen’s engagement to Justin Theroux on a recent episode of “Chelsea Lately,” the actress’s cool facade came down. Fanning her face as very real tears brimmed in her eyes, Jen is clearly super stoked to be tying the knot. I don’t blame her and not just because she found love and all that good stuff — after so many years of the press hounding her, who wouldn’t shed a tear over no longer being Hollywood’s “saddest” single woman?
To celebrate their good friend Chelsea Handler’s new studio, famous lady friends Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz sent Chelsea a special (very, very special) video. A rap video. That they made. It is … terrible. [Buzzfeed]
Chelsea Handler and Gloria Steinem have been hanging out and I’m never invited. It’s cool. I’m not, like, devastated or anything. But I’m just saying, if Arianna Huffington walked up to Chelsea at a Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women event and lectured her how she’s “so maternal” and “needs” to have children, I would have had Chelsea’s back, too. Chelsea and Gloria and I can be “CGJ,” — sort of like “MVP” but feminist and smart and awesome. [E! Online] Keep reading »
On Monday, Chelsea Handler tweeted, “Elizabeth Banks is on tonight’s show, so all my dreams have come true; I can now say I’ve interviewed myself.” Sure they do look a bit alike in that both-have-shoulder-length-blonde-hair-and-angular-faces way, but apparently people confuse them all the time? In last night’s interview, Chelsea divulged that the comparison isn’t always flattering. Chelsea explained, “People always say they look alike, but Chelsea is obviously much later. Meanwhile, we’re the same age.” Elizabeth shared that it goes both ways for her too. “I was sitting in Toronto and a guy walked up to me and said, ‘My girlfriend loves you. She would die if I got your autograph.’ I was like, ‘Sweet. Cool.’ He said, ‘I just love your books, My Horizontal Life.’ I was like, ‘Oh, he thinks he’s meeting Chelsea Handler.’ I couldn’t ruin it for him. He asked, ‘What are you doing in town?’ So I said, ‘I’m on a book tour.’ Just being Chelsea, drinking my vodka.” [LA Times] Keep reading »
