Clay Aiken is a very brave young man. Today, he is going to appear on the infamous E channel, a channel that has done everything they can do to embarrass Clay. Not only will he appear on the E Channel, he will be visiting with Chelsea Handler on her show, Chelsea Lately.
Named the most feared woman in Hollywood by many, her specialty is being rude, very rude, about Hollywood celebrities.
Chelsea Handler was born on February 25, 1976 in Livingston, New Jersey. She was raised in a Jewish neighborhood and grew up as a reformed Jew. She started her career in the limelight as a stand-up comedian and eventually became a regular on the series Girls Behaving Badly. She also appeared in shows like The Bernie Mac Show, The Practice and Weekends at the D.L. In addition, she also became a correspondent on The Tonight Show. Chelsea starred in her own show, The Chelsea Handler Show before she moved to the E Channel.
The half-hour chat show opens with its host talking into the camera for a few minutes about celebrities. Thereafter she will introduce her panel of three “cultural experts” who have names and faces that will probably be unfamiliar to you and the conversation will turn to Hollywood. The closing 10 minutes will be taken up with Chelsea interviewing a celebrity. Sometimes Chelsea creates skits, mocks the showbiz world and makes spoofs of celebrities.
So, for five nights a week just before midnight, Handler is given space to poke fun at the very people whose lives and catastrophes the E channel depends on for ratings. They seem to set no limits on what she and guests feel they need to say. Most reports say that Chelsea is vicious in her judgments, but uses a tone that avoids snide or snarky. It’s character assassination with a winning smile.
So……..only for Clay Aiken will I watch this show. And, more power to you, Clay. I have no doubt you can give it back as well as she can give it.
What do you think about this visit? Have you ever seen Chelsea Lately??
