So, We All Agree…

| Filed under: MTVAwardzChelsea Handler


Chelsea Handler sucked wasn't great last night!

We had high hopes for the normally loose-lipped, laid-back comedian hosting the VMAs last night and yet, she really didn't pull it off, in our opinion. For the most part, we were bored and just hoping she would shut the hell up so we could hear more music.

We're apparently not alone in our assessment as several sources agreed that she was awful, even going as far as to label her the worst host in the show's history!

The New York Times, wasn't too harsh, labeling her "out-of-touch" and "undone by nerves." And The Washington Post wasn't much nicer, suggesting that "a string of flat punch lines felt a few degrees below crass."

The same sentiment was echoed by Entertainment Weekly, who noted that her grand entrance was pretty effing lame, considering that mocking our beloved wifey Lady GaGa was just too "easy."

Yep! We concur! Do U?

    I love Chelsea and her show and her hysterical celeb interviews, but she was mediocre and inappropriate at times that never translated as funny.

  2. 2

    Yup - she stunk up the place. So unfunny and uncomfortable in her own skin.

  3. 3

    She was just really awful — bad jokes, bad "bits" — the whole hot tub gag was a groaner. She was the WRONG person for this job and just about anyone could have told them that. Probably why a woman has NOT hosted for 20 years, probably won't for another 20

  4. 4

    Chelsea was mos def lameo but Russel Brand was the worst host in VMA history. That guy just flat out sucks mayjah donky cocks at least Chelsea is sometimes funny.

  5. 5

    Yep! SHE SUCKED!

    She sucked ! Her tv show isn't all that funny either.

  7. 7

    O.o I thought she was kinda funny.

  8. 8

    She was a train wreck…not funny, annoying, and lame!

  9. 9

    You know… I might read this… if I could! Jezuz! I cant even check over what I am writing right now! Fix your site

  10. 10

    I love Chelsea and thought she did a pretty good job. Her skits were more comical then the stand-up but that's just her humor; you either get it or you don't….

  11. 11

    It was beyond bad. A snoozefest. from the unfunny host to the lame talent to it being The Jersey Show. I knew we we in trouble during the boring pre show.

  12. 12

    I think she was too tame. She's typically funny and loose esp. on her show chelsea lately, but I noticed she wasn't taking too much shizz. I think MTV must've given her restrictions on what NOT to say.

  13. 13

    Yeah she was a snore. I love Chelsea and it was just bad news!!

  14. 14

    i disagree…I love CH…and I think she did great!

  15. 15

    I liked her! Some of what she said wasn't very funny, but she herself was a pretty good host..Russel Brand was way worse on his first time hosting. It was her first massive show, she has never done something to this degree before so give her some credit! I would love to see her get a 2nd chance next year, like Russel did. I loved her entrance I thought it was hilarious.

  16. 16

    She was brutal!!! beyond crass and btw Chelsea Handler ….Justin Bieber comes from Canada…we don't have 401K's….we have RSP plans….at least do your homework! Do your home work on many levels. Don't quit your day job!

  17. 17

    Agree! Usually love Chelsea but last nite she was just too nervous and came off uncomfortable…..Love MM…Born This Way

  18. 18

    noone cares about gaga dear. worst vmas ever thank to ur beloved gaga. noone remembers what she did last year

  19. 19

    The artists were boring that's why the whole show was boring I don't blame her I blame the music scene it just sucks.

  20. 20

    I thought Chelsea was fucking hilarious! And GAGA is an attention whore. I don't understand why anyone likes her?!

  21. 21

    thought Chelsea was fucking hilarious! And GAGA is an attention whore. I don't understand why anyone likes her?!

  22. 22

    Honestly, up to now I wonder why she becomes famous.

  23. 23

    Can't stand her voice.

  24. 24

    it's a shame, because she's usually pretty hilarious. she really was lame, but really, it's gotta suck to host a messy show like this.

  25. 25


  26. 26

    Did anyone think this no talent c-word would actually be a GOOD host? She must have great "skills" to keep getting work.

  27. 27

    She's a bitch. Kids watch the VMAs too!

  28. 28

    I thought she was funny. her nerves came off as funny to me, and her skit with Ke$ha made my life complete. There isn't much she can do to be "funnier" since it was all rehearsed.

  29. 29

    only the jersey shore part was stupid. mocking glee and stuff with the pregnancy.

  30. 30

    mtv sucks

  31. 31

    Yeah i admit that the show was kinda boring. But i luv Chelsea and thought she did a good job. Especially her skit with Justin Bieber, that was hillarious!

  32. 32

    The whole thing sucked. I like Chelsea tho. She shouldn't have even hosted that crap to begin with. The whole thing is sad and the music all sucks and so do all the people who are slaves to it and actually think it's any good.

    either way, in another aspect of contemporary American culture—

    Check out the season finale of Minute to Win it tomorrow night at 8/7c on NBC! Two besty returning soldiers from Iraq compete to win it in a minute on our American heroes episode — tune in!

  33. 33

    There is a fine line between being taking risks and being just plain offensive.

  34. 34

    Yikes, she was BAD. Most of her attempts at humor were pretty lame. I wonder who did her writing. On the plus side, I did like the black heels she was wearing. My laugh of the night came from that twit who was standing with the Jackass crew and whipped off his shirt and pants. Nice, um, sock?

  35. 35

    Well, I LOVE her! I did expect it to be a little better than she was, but how much of that did she really have control over? I have no idea, she could be solely responsible, or it could be the producers/writers of the VMA's. I wouldn't say she was the worst in history though

  36. 36

    i thought chelsea did a great job!!

  37. 37

    She really blew it. This will set her career back.

  38. 38

    chewy coulda done better

  39. 39

    I don't agree at all with the those sentiments. Yeah she got a bit crass, but that's her schtick. I thought she was one of the best things on the show. What happened to music? It all REALLY sucked last night. Hate to say it but Bieber's drumming was the most musical thing last night. That was 2 hours I'll never get back.

  40. 40

    i love u chelsea but yesterday was a disaster. omg wtf was that, thats all i've got to say

  41. 41


  42. 42

    I think she made the best of a bad situation. The show in general was terrible. The standard musical guests were just awful in comparison to previous years. Disappointing overall.

  43. 43

    I actually loved her opening.. I don't care if making fun at Gaga appeared too easy for you… I thought it was hysterical she came out dressed like that. Besides that she wasn't too funny, but Brand was def worse.

  44. 44

    I really liked her :/

  45. 45

    I like CH but the VMA´s are not the same anymore!!

  46. 46

    Yep I thought she was awful.

  47. 47

    Agree'd!! Awkward and uncomfortable. That about sums it up.

  48. 48

    I thought she was funny. But I thought most of the performances were disappointing. Usher, Justin Bieber, and Florence + the Machine were good, but that was about it. The VMAs in general were pretty disappointing this year. Loved all Gaga's speeches though!!

  49. 49

    She was fine! Considering she DID NOT WRITE THE SHOW, I think she did really well! Love her!

  50. 50

    I normally love Chelsea on her show but last night Perez I agree with you. She sucked. It was almost hard to watch. There was NOTHING funny about any of her shit. Ok Ill give her the Lindsay thing, that was funny. The rest just was horrible.

  51. 51

    While I usually think Chelsea is funny, last night…no. It was uncomfortable when she made the "face ride" joke while I'm sitting with my youngest daughter. Disgusting.

  52. 52

    I thought she was funny…fml…

  53. 53

    Yeah she overdid it sometimes. Her joke about black men, Kanye West, and T.I. was def not well recieved. I was there, she wasn't that great.

  54. 54

    I too am a huge fan of Chelsea's….but she seemed a little off. The biggest problem with the show wasn't Chelsea, it was the dreadful choice of performers and guests. Except for Usher, just awful! And as much as I love Gaga…just too much of her.
    MTV - you are so busy chacing the young ones…you've got BORING!

  55. 55

    She tried wayyyyy too hard last night. She should have just acted normal, if she can, and stopped trying to be edgy and mean spirited. She was terrible.

  56. 56


  57. 57

    Chelsea Handler has always sucked.
    All she did was fcuk her way onto that job on E by banging the boss and when she got to where she needed to be, she broke up with him.

  58. 58

    JACK BLACK. Does anyone remember the train wreck hosting job he did. Oh, and Russell Brand was deplorable. Chelsea was no worse than them two.

    People can say what they will about Jimmy Fallon, but at least he excels hosting award shows.

  59. 59

    Perez hosting ANY awards show is probably the hardest job in Hollywood so back off. Russel Brand was, by far, the worst host in the history of award shows! Obviously she was nervous since it's the first time she's done something like that. You would be a horrible mess on that stage! You can't even conduct a good interview with your D-list celebrities on your own site! So back off cause you sucked it up on your quick interview on AI last season talking about that nobody Travis Garland. I thought she did a good job for her first time.

  60. 60

    Re: DVSCanadian – Yeah we get it that ole Justin Bieber is from Canada BUT the VMA's are for an American audience so her reference to 401k was for the American audience not one random Canadian. How about you do your homework and realize that when you perform you know your audience. Ga-duh. Obviously the joke translated well to the audience because everyone laughed…doubt that would have happened if she would have quoted Canada's retirement name. Stop critizing just to act important. You're from Canada. You're not important.

  61. 61


  62. 62

    Personally..I think she was one of the few highlights.. that and gaga's outfits and florence and the machine… otherwise the show was a bunch of dog do do.

  63. 63

    I was really excited to see she was going to be hosting but she was not good at all… Did she write her own jokes or did someone else… not to mention she looked SLOSHED!!

  64. 64

    I was disappointed but it must be hard to do these shows

  65. 65

    Re: projectnow – OUCH can't we all just get along??? we are all important

  66. barb says – reply to this


    their was nothing new, shocking or amazing acts. Chelsey was fine the show was just so lack luster. No one brought it last night and i love this show usually,

  67. 67

    When are networks going to learn that TV hosts, generally do not make good award show mc's. Great news for Letterman though. He, has officially lost his title as the Worst, Award Show, Host ever .

  68. 68

    I liked her, I thought she was funny and fresh~

  69. 69

    Oh oh, drunkard Chelsea. Time for another boob-job to firm up your insecurities pumpkin!

  70. TRIVI says – reply to this


    I was so dissappointed in her performance. I love her show and thought she would be a great host but the funniest bits were in the commercials she did promoting the show.

  71. 71

    Okay, it's apparent now that I read the last sentence… "[she] mocked our beloved wifey"… sooo are you adding Chelsea to your list of female celebs to hate on every other blog? But yeah, I heard she was indeed pretty lame…

  72. 72

    I am going to have to disagree. I thought she did a good job.

  73. 73

    Although I usually do agree with perez 85% of the time, Im going to have to disagree with this statement about chelsea sucking as a host at the VMA's. Chelsea Handler was extreamly funny as she is in her own show. But then again most people dont understand a sense of humor, they usually just look for the bad in people. But who am I? But anyways I thought chelsea was amazing at the VMA's and would like to see her host again!

  74. 74

    I thought Chelsea was hilarious! The scene in the hot tub with the Jersey Shore Crew was funny as hell. She had her highs and her lows. But overall she was pretty funny. No worse then any other Host.

  75. 75

    I love Chelsea but never thought she was a good match for the VMAs (or any awards show). Sorry Chels, you were completely off last night. Better luck next time!

  76. 6one9 says – reply to this


    Chelsea was HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!! Let CHER host the awards next year““` PULEASE!!!

  77. 77

    This was not a good target audience fit - she is funny that is true, but not for that time frame or with this audience…shame on those who tried to fit her into a square box. I cringed a lot during the show - in fact I saw the performers, especially Lady Gaga act so gracious during the acceptance of awards and certainly did not need to hear some of the directive Handler comments (not cool and certainly not funny - 100% crap) - some were stomach turners. Looking forward to next year…don't think Handler is invited.

  78. 78

    I thought she was pretty good.

  79. 79

    i love chelsea and yea it was kinda boring…i think lisa lampanelli should host next year's…she's hilar :)

  80. 80

    Love Chelsea but yea…. Kathy Griffin would have nailed it.

  81. 81

    she is never funny

  82. 82

    Re: DVSCanadian – Yes we know his no talent ass is from shitty Canada. But what the fuck are you talking about? Why would she name canada's retirement plan? You need to do your homework and realize this is an American awards show, NOT Canadian! And while you're at it, why don't you take the stick out that seems to be stuck up your ass! Arrogant asshole.

  83. 83

    She was awful. But she just isn't funny anyway. I do not understand the hype around her at all. I think she rose to fame because she was living with the head of E! but that's it. I don't even care how much of the persona is real or an act. She commits the worst thing a comic can do - which is the fact she isn't really funny. SHE thinks she's funny. But when you really listen to her? She can't tell a "joke". He anecdotes are poorly constructed. Her "punchlines" are monotonous and not smart. There is a reason she needs to surround herself with comedians.
    I think she is okay as an interviewer. But she was horrible as a host.

  84. 84

    She's funny, but she can't read a teleprompter for shit. Watching her monologues on Chelsea Lately are almost painful. She can't even read her note cards without stumbling. She was a poor poor choice to host an awards show.

  85. 85

    I turned the channel. My kids wanted to see Justin Beiber but she talked TRASHY like she does on her LATE night show so I sent them to bed and they missed his performance.

  86. 86

    Love Chelsea, not her best work last night. It was so bad I had to look away or leave the room sometimes. I don't think she was joking about the "being high" part in the beginning of the show.

  87. 87

    I love Chelsea, but her humor doesn't work in a hosting type job. Plus, she had to watch what she said for MTV. You know they weren't going to let her speak freely. The worst host? Umm definately not!

  88. 88

    Re: projectnow – and you're absolutely laughable! Cheers for that!

  89. 89

    I love love love Chelsea but I agree she did suck. I love her on her show way more. I could tell everything was planned, and bunched into one. It felt like she was trying to tell as many jokes as she could in 2 minutes. I did love some parts though. Like where everyone was slapping her ass, and when she was meeting the new artists. It sucks that happened because I know she's a better comedian than that.

  90. 90

    rihanna sucked more then chelsea. i love her and riri was deff more disappointing, i was expecting something about her performance on here

  91. 91

    She did good, she was funny. But the show was so boring though, nothing exciting happened!!

  92. 92

    Can you say BOMBED!!! When you sleep your way into your own TV show….there's no respect and no true talent. It showed.

  93. 93

    I think she sucks bad. Bad everything last night - to be honest. In a punchline that I feel was forced and not funny, Chelsea exited the hot tub and stage yelling that she hopes her morning-after pill might work. That line crossed the line with me. Abortion is not funny – ever. All of her jokes were bombs. Thanks for being honest Perez about how bad she really was.

  94. 94

    Love her show but yeah she really disappointed me.. she was the reason why i was watching it. Then the Kanye performance.

  95. 95

    Re: Novel1 – fuck you retard

  96. 96

    Re: DVSCanadian – your so fucking lame…justin is from canada we dot have 401k's really is that all you coulod come up with,who gives a shit.loser

  97. 97

    i think she did good.she probably had a million restrictions put on her by mtv which hinders her sense of humor,and yeah you either get her or you dont.she was the best part of the show cause the music suuuuccccckkkkkked fucking donkey ass.im so over all this hip hop bullshit,chelsea was the best part of the show and the only reason i stayed tuned in

  98. 98

    I thought the whole thing sucked. and chelsea was just a tiny part of the awful mess. I wanted her to be hilarious and it just made me uncomfortable

  99. 99

    She had a few funny jokes, but you could really sense her nerves, like this had better bet funny. It was forceful, and she was super nervous. She is very funny tho. The nervs just took over. I like Chelsea tho. Usher kilt his performance, he's what these lame awards are all about, him Florence, Eminem, and B.O.b WERE GOOD. Bieber did well.

  100. 100

    You can tell she was nervous but regardless, she was the only reason why i watched the show- she was hilarious.
