Joan Rivers vs. Chelsea Handler: It's On!

| Filed under: Joan RiversChelsea Handler

Team Joan all the way, people! Joan Rangers, we want to hear you loud and proud on this!

Everybody knows that if you want to talk trash about someone, there is no better place to do it than on Howard Stern's radio show. First of all, nobody listens to it, so whatever you say will probably go unheard. And secondly, the person you are bad-mouthing has zero chance of ever being invited onto the show the day after you, so they won't get to respond to every nasty thing you've said about them.

Also, none of that is true or else we wouldn't have this heated feud going on between Joan Rivers and Chelsea Handler. Miz Chelsea started the bashing off when she visited Howard yesterday, laying into Joan about a joke she made. An innocent, harmless, mostly self-depricating joke. When Joan came on the show this morning with her daughter Melissa Rivers to promote the second season of Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best , she didn't take to kindly to that and retaliated HARD!

Check out the video to hear the verbal smackdown from both Joan's side! (above)

Sorry, Chelsea. You don't hold a candle to Joan. The woman is a legend. She is fire. She's the reason you have a job in the first place! TEAM JOAN! TEAM JOAN! TEAM JOAN!

    I'm so glad I sat through the ad to watch this. HILARIOUS!!

  2. 2

    Really Perez? Your site has become a complete joke. It is pretty obvious that you are being paid to say certain things and spin certain stories in a way that benefits your advertisers. I can't believe this story…surrounded by ads for the Joan and Melissa show. This is what is called, "selling out."

  3. 3

    LOL! One thing is for sure: Chelsea is NOT funny! Watching her attempts to be humorous are painful most of the time. :/

  4. 4

    joan rivers is a washed up old hag. chelsea all the way!

  5. 5

    Why does anyone need to pick teams? What's with forced choosing of sides? Why not just acknowledge that both Chelsea & Joan can be mildly entertaining at times, they are both foul-mouthed, they are both acting like classless bimbos and that they both have careers and are each doing fine.

  6. 6

    Joan Rangers? Who does your proofreading/editing?

  7. 7

    Joan Rivers is spot on! Handler is one of THE MOST over-rated "celebs". She's "funny" only about 20% of the time and yet is considered to be a comic? I don't know how that works. And she did get ahead by giving head. Its how much of the E! channel seems to work though.

  8. 8

    Hey Perez…why is this suddenly so funny and not "bullying". What if Joan's claim hurts Chelsea so much that she hangs herself tonight? Go "F" yourself!

  9. 9

    Team Joan!

  10. 10

    It seems that Perez is slowly going back to his bullying ways. Then again…should we really be surprised? Disgusting.

  11. 11

    damn, joan went hard on that ass (LOL)

  12. 12

    Team Joan! Chelsea is a castrating B, and not funny! I find her uncomfortable to watch.

  13. 13

    Yeah, Chelsea's entertaining but not funny at all. Kind of desperate and bitchy.

  14. 14


  15. 15

    Team Joan on this one. I think Chelsea is very funny, but come one, Joan Fucking Rivers? You kiss her ass when you see her!

  16. 16

    We as white people should not be tearing one another down. You don't see any other race behaving like this.

  17. 17

    We as white people should not be tearing one another down. You don't see individuals of other nationalities behaving like this.

  18. 18

    We love you Joan!!!!

  19. 19

    chelsea isn't funny i like her show but she isn't funny. all she is is a shit talker. thats what she did and now she has started something so she could talk about it on her show.

    They're both offensive comedians. The great difference is that Joan messes up with celebrities & the Hollywood industry - at least that's what I see when I watch Fashion Police. Chelsea messes up with groups of people, beliefs, etc. When you offend your potential audience you lose support & you lose fans. I once saw her blasting & dissing Jesus Christ, saying horrible, deplorable & disgusting things about him, just to name 1 example. I'm sure she must have lost tons of fans on that day, cause the stuff she said about Him were hideous. Even many non-christians that saw that episode must have felt really awkward. You do NOT mess with the average people or their beliefs/emotions/lives/etc. It's not a "sensitivity" issue, it's a reality issue. Joan's right. She is VERY ordinary & not funny at all.

  22. 22

    Re: Adorable Kevy – Perfectly said.

  23. 23

    "First of all, nobody listens to it"
    Are you fucking high? Tell whoever wrote this horse shit that you are a supposed to be a friend of that show. Not to mention more people listen to it then read this website. More people hear Howard then Leno or Handler or any other talk show. Get your writers in line fuck boy.

    As for this "fight", both of them are AWFUL, so who gives a shit.

    WTF do you mean no one listens to Howard Stern?? I hope that was your bad attempt at sarcasim ..the guy has been nothing but nice to you….

  26. 26

    really? nobody listens to howard stern? i bet alot more people know who howard stern is than you. for sure. dont see you being asked to be on any shows or have a movie made based on your life story.

  27. 27

    Okay, this is really outrageous! First of all, when your site does load and work right, its become a joke. You have ads for Joan and Melissa's show all over the place, so YOU are totally biased and to be honest, this seems like a plant…like a product tie-in or something. SCAM!!!!

  28. 28

    Re: purplesprings
    Exactly! People are smarter than he thinks. This ploy of his and hers is really unacceptable. There is NO integrity of information on this site at all. Its on its way down.

  29. 29

    Joan Rangers? How pathetic… can't even get her name right. Your days of self-promotion and being a paid shill are catching up to you Perez. Why anyone advertises on here is a mystery.

  30. 30

    Perez writes : " Noone listens to his show anyway"… are you serious? Howard Stern is the KING of all media, and considering you STOLE his trademark for the title of your own website you should know this. Howard Stern is a giant in this business, love him or hate him, he gets a ton of respect and has changed radio and media before you knew where your dick was!

  31. 31

    you geek!

  32. 32

    and weren't you like all up Chelsea Handlers ass like a month ago?
    you retard!

  33. 33

    I love Chelsea's sarcasm and raw behavior, but Joan Rivers owns her any day. For her age, Joan is right on track and has a quick wit ready to cut anyone up.

  34. 1finn says – reply to this


    Re: purplesprings – Totally agree must add, Joan says Chelsea got handouts to get where she is. What about Melissa, what is her talent? She is only on shows because and with her mother. And for the record I like both Joan and Chelsea. And perez having posts about Joan with ads all over the site is TOTALLY selling out.

  35. 35

    i love joan rivers she makes me laugh i like chelsea but sometimes she goes overboard and sound rude to some people you have respect joan rivers shes fucking funny and older woman that pay the path to you chelsea shes been for years in tv just stop this shit with joans she put you on blast ha

  36. BB23 says – reply to this


    More people listen to Howard Stern than people read the shit you post on your website.

  37. 37

    You go Joan!

  38. 38

    Honestly, the lack of reading comprehension among the commenters scares me. Perez very clearly states that his comments on Howard Stern are NOT true and he was simply "setting up" the story. As for Joan Rangers, he is referring to fans of Joan Rivers, not misstating her name. I'm all for calling Perez out on his BS, but at least be good at it!

  39. 39

    You're just Team Joan bc Chelsea isn't afraid to put you in your place.

  40. 40

    While I won't go so far as to get on "team" because both of these hags are rich, I am more in favor of Joan on this one. I don't like Chelsea as much as I just tolerate her. Chelsea isn't funny, she just happens to have a few funny comics on her show. And Joan is right, Chelsea more than likely got that job because she was fucking the president of the E! network. The irony of it all is that Chelsea dogs Kim Kardashian for basically doing the same thing. Kim got her fame do to a sex tape and Chelsea fucked a man who was able to give her a grand opportunity. I'm not hating on her hustle, but she shouldn't act like it was her "comedic talents" that got her the job. We all saw how she crashed and burned at the VMA's.

    I also think Joan would not have went there had Chelsea not attacked first, which I am surprised that Chelsea went there. How can Chelsea, who makes offensive "jokes" all the time, have the nerve to get offended by a crack Joan Rivers made about her? Yes, Joan can be just as crass as Chelsea, but she owns it and she doesn't sit around and boo hoo when someone makes a crack about her and her plastic surgeries and old age. She knows that if you dish it out, you have to take it.

    Re: Paulie – Perez is pathetic, but that wasn't a typo. "Joan Rangers" is the name Joan calls the "Fashion Police" viewers.

  41. 41

    Joan > Chelsea
    I used to watch Chelsea Lately daily but her schtick go old. Vodka jokes, vagina jokes (caslopis??), Chuy, etc. It got boring and predictable and subsequently less funny. Fashion Police is funny. I really don't like Kelly or Guliana, but Joan's funny at least.

  42. 42

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal – Ok, do some basic research before you comment, that is what she calls her fans

  43. 43

    Re: wiejr129 – Agreed and nicely said.

  44. 44

    I used to think Chelsea was funny but have not seen her new show.

  45. 45

    Joan was correct in her assessment of Chelsea

  46. Wrenn says – reply to this


    She's right!! Chelsea is a no-talent, drunken whore. She should have an STD named after her. Skank!

  47. 47

    Chelsea is totally not funny! She is an old hag who tries to act young. At least Joan is funny and admits to her plastic surgery. I HOPE I look as good as when when I am almost 80! Joan Rocks!

  48. 48

    Joan called it. Handler was a failed actress whos first role was showing her tits, she then decided to lay on her back and take loads from a MAN in power for monetary gain and a career boost(like most women do) but then again Joan was never funny either.

    Re: JoeyBing2102 – then the world would be a better place

    Re: Blakney – are you blind or just stupid?

  51. 51

    Team Chelsea

  52. 52

    Re: *truth*hurts* – I couldn't have said it better myself. In the past, I found Chelsea to be funny at times and would tune in and read her books. Once she started messing with my religious beliefs and making a mockery out of it, I tuned her out. I am not even overly religious but I lost all respect for her lack of respect. Not surprised by the fact she F*@#$% her way to the top. She is vile, mean and an overall piece of SH#$ human being.

  53. 53

    Another MAIN reason she made it to the top - she would blasphemy against Jesus Christ.

  54. 54

    Re: wiejr129 – Yeah your right, Once I read that line about Stern I didn't read the next paragraph. I take it back, these clowns still suck though.

  55. 55

    Re: Blakney – Um…Blankney…you obviously haven't heard spike lee's latest comments to Chris Rock…Joan is really being honest and if that's how Chelsea got her spot on TV…then…go figure…

  56. 56

    For those of you who are too young to know: Joan Rivers was THE woman chosen by Johnny Carson to sit in his chair on nights he was not hosting The Tonight Show. It was a big-assed deal. She blazed a trail for women everywhere, and paid more than her dues–and it wasn't by screwing her way into Johnny's show or anyone else's. She busted her ass, lost her husband to suicide, and managed to overcome many obstacles to have a thriving career that is based on actual humor (jokes!)-she's naturally funny, unlike Handler who really does not have much concept of what is funny or not.

  57. 57

    No I've gotta be team Chelsea on that one. Chelsea made a small comment/joke- something Joan does all the time and should be able to take (if she dishes it). But Joan took it WAY too far by saying really nasty things, made her look pathetic

  58. 58

    Re: Guesst – So what? Chelsea doesn't need to kiss her ass for that. A lot of women were trailblazers. Joan just took it too far. If you can dish it, you need to be able to take it. Bottom line. Doesn't matter who came before who.

  59. 59

    Mario, people do in fact listen to the Howard Stern Show. Millions of people every day. His move to sirius garnered the company enough new subscriptions and earnings that they not only beat out XM radio, they bought it. You think Howard Stern makes the crazy money he does broadcasting to a small handful of people? Pull head from ass, mario.

  60. 60

    go joanie, I loved you Chelsea but Im totally team joan, your punching about your weight

  61. 61

    just had to listen to that twice hahahahaaaa beautiful stuff

    u people are stupid he said noone listens as a joke sheesh… why not read the full post before running ur fingers off ..

  62. 62

    Re: Blakney – and since when white is a nationality?

  63. 63

    Re: Guesst – I am young and I didn't know until you said it, as it haven't been relevant until this very moment, but there are certainly people who are at the same age who knows despite their age. That said, you make a good point.

  64. 64

    Team JOAN, of course! Joan is naturally talented, FUNNY! Chelsea is absolutely not, her aggressive smart ass attitude is not funny. How dare she.

  65. Low says – reply to this


    I used to like Chelsea but her acting is SOOOOOO bad on that show.

    Go Joan…. that was so funny. Who goes after Joan and does not expect to get their ass handed to them on a shit platter?

  66. Low says – reply to this


    "Howard Stern's radio show. First of all, nobody listens to it, so whatever you say will probably go unheard."

    I missed this first time. WTF Perez? What planet are you on? Not Earth that's for sure.

  67. 67

    JOAN RANGERS is what JOAN calls her people on her show and her fans on that fashion show with Kelly Osbourne IT ISNT A TYPO! People need to reseach better.
    Second. I love chelsea to death! Shes great its nice to see a woman in late night. Women shouldnt tear women down! I think Joan is hysterical as well. Im not picking sides. But i didnt like Joan calling chelsea a whore. Shes a single woman who can do whoever she wants. And no chelsa isnt ordinary.. she just dissed Jen A and Reese W for being friends witha whore and ordinary woman. I actually bet chelsea will take being called a whore as a compliment… Shes great!

  68. 68

    chelsea was on on monday and joan on tuesday so she gets to rebut chelsea. and to say NO ONE LISTENS to him, you seem to always kiss his ass when you're on his show.

    ugh for that comment…whether you said it or not…it is definitely representative of you.

  69. 69

    Perez/ hypocrite, Howard has been nice to you and you slam him?? Only you can voice an opinion? Douche

    team joan of course

    Yah . . . chelsea should've stayed away from that one.

  74. 74

    Perez, the fact that you so blatantly take sides makes me take you less seriously as a journalist; and you don't explain why you take Rivers' side… It's complete and total BS that Handler wouldn't have a job if it wouldn't be for Rivers!
    I like Rivers for her holding onto fame, proving to ppl that she still matters. But I don't like that she talks a lot of smack, but cannot take it when it's said about her… see her Roast! She smacks Griffin across the face, then goes off complaining that everyone's cussing too much :$. It's like the pot calling the kettle black, her calling Handler a drunk.

  75. 75

    Re: MewLover34 – I agree!!!!! Perez's staff is screwed up :D Howard is the only one, if I'm not mistaken, with a show that one can't buy as an add-on on SIrius A La Carte package. All others you can. He increased Sirius's listeners from… 500,000 to, what, 20 mil, I think. At least 2 mil, I might be off a bit. The writer of this article is too obsessed with Rivers and praising her to think through what he (or she) is saying :D

  76. 76

    chelsea is hideous

  77. 77

    I was a fan of Chelsea until she disrespected Joan. Joan, Tootie Fields, and Phyllis Diller opened the doors for young female comics.Chelsea can't carry Joan Rivers spanks!!! Young folk have to learn how to treat the elder statesmen.Maybe its just women because I can't imagine Adam Sandler,Chris Rock,or Ben Stiller being disrepectful to Don Rickles!

  78. 78

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal – Actually, Joan's fans are called the "Joan Rangers". It's not a typo.

  79. 79

    Re: Paulie – Her fans are called the "Joan Rangers". Perez wrote it correctly.

  80. 80

    Love you Perezito! JOAN RANGER, right here. Used to catch Chelsea' show (to watch Ross, the only funny one) however, no more. I am disgusted with her attitude and lack of talent. No worries, JOAN RANGERS, Joan already put her in her place.

  81. 81

    Chelsea is just classless not to speak to an older mature Joan when Joan made the first effort. This just confirms what I thought about Chelsea all along: no class whatsoever.
    Joan is a classy broad, and I definitely am on Team Joan!

  82. 82

    If anything this shows how self absorbed Chelsea Handler is. Joan made a joke about herself that Chelsea took personally. A real comedian would see the humor in it. Not all jokes are winners but at least Joan has talent.

  83. 83

    Perez is only for Joan because Chelsea doesn't kiss his ass. I saw your tweet to her, Perez. You two obviously got into a fight and that's why you're so spiteful to her.
    It wasn't Chelsea's place to say this kind of shit, but I think people don't understand her.
