Is Denise Richards Being Courted To Roast Charlie Sheen??

Denise Richards Might Roast Sheen

Honestly, how perfect would this be?

We understand that the usual slew of comedians will get up and to do their thing, but how many of them know the MaSheen as well as Denise Richards?!

None of them, that's how many!

A source tells Us Weekly that out of all the people out there who they could grab to poke fun at Charlie, one of the people they are currently interested in the most is none other than his ex Denise Richards:

"Producers are dying to get her confirmed… It would be amazing television!”

Apparently, that's as close as we're getting to some solid info on it though, is that she's "interested."

That's a good sign though. She just needs to vent to an amazing comedian and then have them write her lines. Someone like Louis C.K. or something!

Plus, think of the ratings if one of his ex-wives went up there to destroy him! Rad!

Do U think she should do it or not??

Comedy Central's Charlie Sheen Roast The Same Night As Ashton's Men Premiere

Filed under: TV NewsAshton KutcherCharlie Sheen

Sheen Roast Vs. Ashton

This is probably the best scheduling conflict ever.

We just hope the commercials don't match up! Because let's be honest: How awesome would it be to see Charlie Sheen get Comedy Central Roasted and then flip over to see if Ashton is doing well filling his void??

It would be great if the comedians doing the roasting were aware of the scheduling, because that's just comedy gold.

Here's what Sheen has to say about the Roast:

"You could say I've been providing kindling for this Roast for a while. It's time to light it up. It's going to be epic.”

Agreed, Charlie! It's time! Plus now we only have to remember one date: Sept. 19th!

Which will U watch??

Oprah Or Gaga? Emmy Showdown!

Filed under: BeyonceOprah WinfreyAwardzLady GaGa

GaGa Emmy

Oh no! We have no idea who to root for here, because we love both Oprah AND GaGa!

This year marks the year that GaGa is going for an award outside of the music realm — in the variety special category at the Emmys for her Monster Ball Tour at Madison Square Garden!

She's going up against slew of other artists as well, as the category is kind of a catch-all for all kinds of performers including musicians (like Beyonce) and comedians, and Oprah!

This is quite the problem here, guys!

Who do U think should win it??

Comedians On Broadway! The Numbers Are In!

chris rock falls behind other comedians on broadway

Congratulations, John Leguizamo! You've come A LONG way since American Buffalo!

Last week, John brought in some very solid #'s with Ghetto Klown, which sold 77% of possible seats, and brought in nearly $350,000.

Robin Williams' comedy Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo sold 73.4% of possible seats, but brought in a gross of nearly $460,000.

Chris Rock's The Motherf*cker With the Hat didn't fare quite so well, with only 66.4% of possible seats filled, and a less-than-impressive $239,000 gross for the week.

Cheer up, Chris! Things can always turn around!

Have U seen any of these comedians on Broadway? If so, what did U think of their performances?

Whoopi, Joy, And Joan Defend Gilbert Gottfried

After being fired from Aflac for his tasteless jokes about Japan, Gilbert Gottfried made an apology via Twitter yesterday, which we thought was weak and too-little-too-late.

Not EVERYONE is against Gilbert though. In a clip from The View (above), Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar defend the comedian, claiming he's "always inappropriate," and that "comics have never been appropriate."

Joan Rivers also came to Gilbert's side, and defended him with the following tweet:

“Oh come on people-this is just outrageous! Gilbert Gottfried was FIRED from Aflac for making jokes about the tsunami in Japan. That’s what comedians do!!! We react to tragedy by making jokes to help people in tough times feel better through laughter.”

Looks like Joan's not 100% on his side though, because she tweeted the following later on:

“Heard Aflac has 75% of it’s business in Japan. I stand by what I said but Gilbert-as a spokesperson-you should know who you represent!”

We understand the argument that comics are "inappropriate" and "that's what comedians do," but there's a time and a place for everything.

Publicly making tasteless, inappropriate, and insensitive comments about people who are currently in the midst of a tragedy is wrong, whether it's a comic making the jokes or a lawyer, or whoever.

Do U think Gilbert was wrong? Or do you agree with Whoopi, Joy, and Joan's defense of the comedian?

Playing nice! So lovely!

Even though they're arguably two of the funniest ladies out there, Kathy Griffin and Chelsea Handler put away their claws and posed together for a photo while Griffin made an appearance on Chelsea Lately (above)!

Excellent!

That is one episode we INTEND to watch! We can only imagine what these two throw at each other!

LOLz!

E! Gives Chelsea Handler More Air Time!

Filed under: TV NewsChelsea Handler

chelsea_handler_gets_new_show.jpg

It'll be like Curb Your Enthusiasm, without the Emmy nominations.

Chelsea Handler has been given the chance by her nurturing ex-boyfriend employers at E! to start up a new comedy called After Lately.

The network picked up an eight episode order of the half-hour comedy about the backstage goings-on at her E! late night show Chelsea Lately. And we weren't kidding when we said it would be like Curb. Sources explain that the show will follow a "story outline" format, so expect several unplanned shenanigans throughout. When asked about the new project, Chelsea explained:

"The show is a behind-the-scenes look at what happens at our office when the cameras are off. … A perfect platform for people who have no business being on camera."

The cast will include members of the Lately staff frequently seen on the roundtable like Guy Branum, Sarah Colonna, Heather McDonald, Chris Franjola, and Brad Wollack.

We'll see how it goes. If it takes off, consider the network officially owned by the state of NJ! Girl is making them bank!

Think U will tune in for the show?
