This week, the group had their first big interview in the United States with none other than the filterless female comedian, Chelsea Handler on Chelsea Lately. “So it’s kind of like the Spice Girls, right? A new improved Spice Girls?” Handler joked. “You guys are from Great Britain, so you speak English?” Handler didn’t hold back and even joked about sitting on their faces at one point. At another part during the interview, Handler asked Rochelle Humes who is pregnant, “So you’re gonna keep it?” OMG.
The girls will perform their new US single ‘What About Us‘ on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on January 14. Check out their interview with Handler below.
Oh. Em. Gee. Last night’s episode of Chelsea Lately was epic. This was the first new episode on their highly anticipated new set on the Universal Lot. The episode opened up with a shower scene with Chelsea Handler getting confronted and bitched out by none other than Sandra Bullock! Given that they were both in the shower, they were also both naked with their lady parts blurred out. Sandra spoke sternly to Chelsea about how she needs to get her sh*t together, not drink so much, and stop sleeping with her guests – she even slaps her in the face…twice! LOL.
In this episode, the panel is made up of Heather McDonald, Loni Love and Ross Mathews. They talk about Sarah Palin‘s questionable weight loss, the man who jumped from space, Lindsay Lohan endorsing Mitt Romney, Rihanna & Chris Brown and more.
When her good friend Jennifer Aniston came on as the special guest and Handler mentions her engagement to Justin Theroux, Aniston says, “I just got verklempt,” fighting back the tears. Handler added, “He’s the greatest guy ever and you guys make the greatest couple ever.”
Next week, Chelsea Handler will be debuting her new Chelsea Lately set since she’s now moved to Studio 1 on the Universal lot. We saw her live this past summer at her old location so we recognize that it’s a big change to be moving to Universal. She was on Jay Leno earlier this week, making fun of him and also talking about the big change.
To help celebrate the occasion, her celebrity friends Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz decided to make a video where they do a rap specifically for Chelsea Handler… You know how Chelsea loves a rapper (ahem… 50 Cent).
The rap is both ridiculous and funny at the same time and they do actually bring up 50 Cent in their rap as well, saying “50 Cent tells us you like it rough!” In addition, they poke fun at her by saying, “We kind of like you because you’re blonde like us, but we can’t hang out with you in public because you drink too much!” LOL. Watch the video below.
In the sketch, Chelsea plays Kim Kardashian who, after watching Schindler’s List, decides she and her sisters must do something to help save the Jews from the Nazis. In order to save them, every Jew they come across in the scene they hide in the basement. When they question why, Khloe (Fortune Feimster) yells, “Get in the basement!” The funny and loveable Heather McDonald plays their mother, Kris Jenner in the parody.
The sketch makes fun of all the other family members too : Kourtney Kardashian, Scott Disick, baby Mason (played by Chuy), Bruce Jenner, and even Kanye West. Kanye has to go to the basement because Kim just saw the movie Amistad and is worried about his safety.
Last night, Homorazzi favorite (and fan) Ross Mathews filled in for Chelsea Handler on her E! talk show Chelsea Lately. Ross is a regular co-host but seeing Ross in the host seat was a welcome treat. His comedic timing and interactions with the other comedians and audience is impeccable. And how can you not love that personality and laugh?
Well it looks like Ross is impressing Chelsea and the big boys upstairs because it was announced this morning that Ross has signed his own one-year deal with E! where he will develop his own talk show in conjunction with Chelsea Handler’s production company Borderline Amazing. When I chatted with Ross in June, we talked about a pilot he had worked on with Heather McDonald that ultimately didn’t get picked up. This new deal will see Ross getting his turn in the spotlight. A well deserved feat. In my opinion, it’s his time and as he told us today over the phone, “it fees like the right time.” He’s been working for a decade to hone his skills and is very thankful to E! and to Chelsea Handler the opportunities to grow and showcase what he has to offer.
So what is this new show going to be about? When we chatted on the phone, he told me that wants “America to LOL for half an hour.” Only Ross Mathews could make a statement like that. He goes on to say that with everyone down in the dumps and depressed with coming out the recession and looking for jobs and what not that he wants everyone to just be happy after watching his show. I think that he’ll definitely do just that. He’s had me ROTFL for years.
I first remember seeing Ross Mathews on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, hitting the streets and the red carpets talking to people about anything and everything. His infectious smile and incredible laugh sucked you in and made you fall in love with this comedy gem. The other day, I was lucky enough to give Ross a call and chat with him about what’s going on in his exciting life.
While watering his garden filled with delicious fruits and veggies (I asked to come over for a salad), Ross filled me in on his introduction on Jay Leno to his current friendship with Chelsea Handler. “I was the sugar to her spice,” he said in the interview and when you watch these two interact on her show After Lately or as a round table guest on Chelsea Lately, you’ll see that it’s a match made in comedy heaven. This match-up helped him create a TV pilot for E! with fellow comedian Heather McDonald with Chelsea stepping in as producer.
When Ross isn’t busy reporting and joking about pop culture, he’s fully invested in watching some of the guilty pleasure reality shows we all enjoy including one of my summer favorites… Big Brother. In the interview, Ross even admits that he watches After Dark and the live feeds. He admits that even though most of the time they are just sitting under blankets talking or napping, he’s still captivated to watch. Hilarious. There is no doubt that this new spokesman for Jenny Craig has big things coming his way and I can’t wait to see where they take him.
Watching Chelsea Lately last night, Handler had a guest on named Donald Schultz and man did he have a big snake…literally! “I haven’t seen anything that big since I dated 50 Cent,” joked Chelsea Handler, as she perched from the back of her chair in fear of the giant boa constrictor he was showing her. I’m like Handler – completely fascinated by snakes, but incredibly afraid of them. I would have been up on that chair with her, or sitting off to the side on Chuy’s lap!
The handsome South African herpetologist is a regular guest on Chelsea Lately. Given his profession, he knows how to handle his moneys and snakes. For me, it’s just a hobby. *WINK ;) Schultz is a venom expert, writer, photographer, adventurer, and is on a show on Animal Planet called “The Wild Recon.” I’m surprised Chelsea Handler hasn’t brought this one home with her, considering she does have a thing for animal trainers. Handler used to date Dave Salmoni, a very hunky Canadian animal trainer. Of course if you’re Chelsea Lately, you’re pretty much the Queen of the Jungle and you can have your pick of the litter. ROWR! Watch some footage of the two of them below.
Yesterday, myself and a few of the Homorazzi boys attended a live taping of “Chelsea Lately“. Having spent a relaxing and romantic night at the Andaz West Hollywood with Brian, I was ready to have a laugh out good time. Though I don’t watch Chelsea Handler‘s show religiously or her other E! show, “After Lately”, I’ve always been entertained by Handler’s comic delivery and wit. Would watching her show in person live up to the televised version? Drumroll please…
Yes, it did and even more so. I’ve been to a couple of other talk show tapings before, but this by far was my best experience. I have to commend the show’s crew for moving everything so efficiently and with exact precision. It was amazing to see everyone work together so seamlessly to put on the show millions watch on a nightly basis right in front of us. The whole experience was quick, painless and hilarious. Definitely recommend going to it.
Tyrell, Patrick, Brian and I were lucky enough to score wicked VIP seats thanks to a PR person I know. We were literally a couple of arm’s length away from Chuy. Patrick even caught one of his balls (don’t ask). Funny anecdote. Patrick almost got kicked out twice. First for standing up to catch one of Chuy’s ball, despite being warned before hand not to stand up, and secondly for shoving Chuy’s balls in front of Chelsea’s face for an autograph. LOL. See a picture of Chuy’s ball below.
