Chelsea Handler Blasts Piers Morgan On Live TV: 'You're A Terrible Interviewer'

Chelsea Handler doesn't take anything from anyone. During her recent interview with Piers Morgan, she railed against the CNN host on live TV, unabashedly questioning his reporting methods and lackluster attention span.

"How do you spend your life when you're not working?" the Piers Morgan Live host asked, rather sheepishly. "Like this week, what will you do?" Handler shot back, "Well, I am working this week. I have to come here and tolerate this nonsense and then go do a book signing in Westwood. I'm a work horse."

Morgan then prompted, "You tweet very amusingly." Handler then took the bait, "I wish you did." During the commercial break moments prior, Morgan was seen taking to his Twitter page to talk to fans, which did not go unnoticed by his guest.

"I mean in the middle of the commercial break — I want your viewers to know; they must know, because they're probably following you on Twitter. I mean you can't even pay attention for 60 seconds. You're a terrible interviewer.," the Chelsea Lately star blasted as he chuckled, uncomfortably.

The on-air trading of insults only escalated from there. "Well you just weren't keeping my attention," Morgan grinned, to which Handler responded, "That's not my problem."

Morgan exclaimed, "That is your problem!"

"This is your show. You have to pay attention to the guests that you invited on your show," Handler, obviously infuriated, replied.

"If they're interesting enough!"

Handler then lays down the law, "Yeah, listen. It doesn't matter how interesting I am. You signed up for this job."

"Of course it does!"

"Well, maybe that's why your job is coming to an end," she scolded.
