‘He tried to Cosby me’


Handler talks about avoiding being victimized by Cosby when he invited her to his hotel room in an interview to Esquire magazine.

Not poor guy—he tried to Cosby me. Oh, I was in Atlantic City playing, doing stand-up, and he was doing stand-up in Atlantic City in the same hotel, and at like three o’clock in the afternoon, someone from the hotel came down and said, “Oh, you know, Mr. Cosby would really like to meet you up in his hotel suite.” And I thought, That’s really weird. This was like ten years ago. And I said, That’s really weird. I don’t want to go alone. I go, I don’t know him. So the three guys I was with—thank God these guys were with me. One was filming and one was like a producer; we were filming something— I brought them up with me to his room and thank God I did, because now I know what would’ve happened if I went up there alone. And I forgot about it when all the stories about Bill Cosby came out. I was like, I didn’t even think of it. Then my friend texted me the other day saying, “Do you remember that night we went up to, or that afternoon we went up to Bill Cosby’s and you were so freaked out you made us come with you?” And I said, Yeah, and he said, “Hello! You could’ve been one of his victims if we weren’t there.” And I went, “Oh my gosh . . .” Yeah, so yeah, he’s guilty… I think it’s pretty obvious now.

Reveals new show

Handler chats about looking for things that she doesn’t know about, and learning about them in her new show Uganda Be Kidding Me, which will premier on Netflix.

I don’t think there is no shame in asking a question, I think there is a lot of shame in pretending you know something you don’t.

Chelsea Handler interview

Seacrest interviews Handler during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her latest show Uganda Be Kidding Me Live, streaming on Netflix.

First of all, it’s going to be a lot different because I don’t have to focus on things that I’m not interested in. I think the most important thing I learned is I have to be interested in what I’m talking abut. Otherwise, it’s not interesting to viewers. I want it to be well-rounded. My interests are so much more vast than what I was able to tap into on E! I have some really stupid questions, like I want to know how a bill is passed I want to know how you make an app!

Wouldn’t it be amazing, though, if I did leave and then the whole Kardashian empire just crumbled? In some stroke of crazy irony and happenstance, all of a sudden they just fell apart and … then I was a national hero.

Sia interview

I don’t want to be famous. All my friends that I write pop songs for are super famous, and it really f–ked them up!!And like being hunted, paparazzi-style, doesn’t appeal to me. I want to be able to get fat and pee on the side of the road!

Chelsea Handler interview


Seacrest interviews Handler during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about why she dislikes Piers Morgan as an interviewer.

Well, he is a really bad interviewer. I mean, he doesn’t listen. He checks his Twitter handle the entire time you’re talking to him, so yeah, I was being serious I tell him that all the time. I mean, he texted me to come on the show and I was like, ‘Why? You’re such a bad interviewer.’ And then I said, ‘Sure I’ll do it.’ I mean he’s fine, whatever, I don’t dislike him. I just think he should probably do something else now.
