Rivers, who is never one to mince words, talked about Chelsea’s former relationship with E! President Ted Harbert, stating, “Number one, the girl made it on her back f**king the president, we all know that, of the network. Number two, she’s fine, she’s ordinary. She’s not a genius. She’s an ordinary girl that was f**king somebody high up in the industry and they gave her a break and she’s doing okay.”
Rivers even added, “Whatever she is, she’s a drunk. I don’t wish her good luck, I don’t wish her bad luck. I don’t think she’s particularly funny. But don’t you come after me, you whore!”
Chelsea Handler, who was on Howard’s show Monday had this to say about the comedian, “Joan Rivers? What the f**k do I care about Joan Rivers? I don’t think about her ever.”
Handler claims that Rivers started the feud by making jokes at her expense during a speech at a Comcast event.
“Joan Rivers gets up and she’s like, I’d like to thank Chelsea Handler for giving me a career in comedy, and congratulations on your stage Chelsea because I don’t even have a dressing room,” Handler explained. “And I’m like, f**k off!”
