Chelsea Handler and Perez Hilton feud over VMA hosting

Chelsea-Handler-PerezImage Credit: Evan Agostini/PictureGroup/MTV; Albert L. Ortega/PPerez Hilton wasn’t the only person who panned Chelsea Handler’s hosting duties at the VMAs last night, but seems he’s the only one currently fielding her wrath. After the celebrity blogger wrote on his blog that Handler “really didn’t pull it off…For the most part, we were bored and just hoping she would shut the hell up so we could hear more music,” the Chelsea Lately host responded on her Twitter, telling Hilton, “oh, f–k off. I had a blast and the show awesome last night. Bomb? Your life is a bomb.”

Yep, unfortunately for Hilton, that’s “a bomb” and not “da bomb,” an insult that led the blogger to fire back on his Twitter, “I’m more happy with my bomb life.” (Along with some harsh words that can’t be reprinted on this family-friendly blog.) But perhaps the Handler has had the last laugh — the writer/comedian also tweeted: “Just got word…Highest rated vma’s since 2002. Good job, mtv! Good job, kiddo.”

Mostly, we’re just left wondering, should we be worried?

    Two talentless twits tweeting. A real tempest in a teapot. Chelsea’s the next Carrot Top.

    • Kate

      No kidding! I can’t stand Perez, but Handler comes across as a pouty baby. He was hardly the only person slamming her performance (which might mean she did kind of suck, even if she had fun) – why validate his opinion at all with a response? Just makes her look petty (Perez always looks petty – he can’t not).

    • Joey

      I have to disagree but after last night Carrot Top has more talent than Chelsea Handler

    • Carrie #2

      Couldn’t have said it better myself!

    • Anna

      Well, at least she was better than Russell Brand.

    • debi

      u nailed it brett-love it! i’ve met carrot top (so much frickin’ makeup eek!) chelsea sucked, sucked, sucked the life out of the show.

    • Peppy

      Hey, I like Carrot Top.

    • Zeddicus

      I doubt the high ratings had much to do with Chelsea anyway, but yeah both of these people are annoying

    • nykolus

      nice alliteration, brett!!!

    • Doubt it

      Its a shame, the only way to actually see music videos on MTV is at an awards show… Chelsea had one thing right, don’t clap for Jersey Shore, they are the reason videos don’t play on MTV anymore!

    • Amy

      Sorry Handler, highest rated because people tuned in to see what crap Kanye was going to pull. That’s it. She’s ruined it for next year’s host.

    • Teddy Z. Harbert

      Chelsea is a back stabbing talenteless ho.

  • KG

    Shut up, perez. Nobody cares what a pig like him thinks.

    • BP

      OMG he is so ugly.

  • Len

    Let’s hope they settle this with automatic weapons.

    • tJhooKer

      throw them both into a pit with dull spoons and let them fight to the death

  • DZ

    Only highly rated because people wanted to see how the Kanye/Taylor debacle would pan out. Had nothing to do with Chelsea.

    • Joe


      • nancy

        Yes! So true! I like Chelsea’s show, she must need her panel of comedian’s to make her look and feel more comfortable.

      • Dani

        You are spot on! The only reason ANYONE watched is because of the Swift/West stuff. It was “leaked” that Swift wrote a song about it, and that is the only reason anyone watched.

    • Grace

      That actually kept me away.

      • Doubt it

        I agree, I didn’t even hear anything about Kayne/Swift, so I didn’t watch it because of them.

    • Well wells

      Don’t forget the beiber fans tuned in

      • Doubt it

        Not alot of Beiber fans, he only one one award, it was the night of the Monsters!

  • CF`

    loved chcelsea on the fact when music artists were “performing” i couldn’t wait for it to stop & her to get back on..perez is an IDIOT!

    • chaz

      i totally agree with u. i love chelsea lol. so hilarious

    • Jamie

      I thought she was fine too. I’ve seen her be funnier, but then again I don’t tune into any awards show for the host – I tune in to see who wins and in a case like the VMA’s or the Grammy’s to see musical performances. Every so often a host steals the show, but it’s very very very few and far between. Chelsea did her thing and let’s face it, not everyone is going to get her, so in light of that I thought she did good.

    • Get Off!

      I couldn’t agree more. Chelsea is always entertaining and ridiculously HOT. I’d watch her do almost anything!

  • Davis

    She was terrible.

    • gtfo

      Agreed. It was like she was the old lady trying to keep up with the kiddies. Lady Gaga bit right out the gate? Please. I am 18 and I was groaning at her sad attempts to be relevant.

      • Mike

        Yeah cause everything relevant today is awesome. Justin Bieber, Jersey Shore, Twilight. I sort of hate this fad.

  • BillyBob

    chelsie sucked big time rude and tasteless at best. reminded me of a few freshmen trying to be funny. If show was big in ratings it was because of all the “leaked” info on taylor and Kanyes supposed confrontation. That’s the only reason I tuned in. Actually had to set my DVR so I could wait awhile then fast forward thru her GAR-BAGE. If Roseanne and Chelsie are the best females available for hosting, then no wonder its been 16 years>>>>>At least Roseanne’s better looking.

    • Tommy

      Chelsea was rude and tasteless? So what? If you’re watching the VMA’s for class, then you are foolish. It was on the channel that airs that Jersey Shore garbage for goodness sakes.

  • BillyBob

    OK< so Roseanne's NOT better looking.

  • candaceTX

    why oh why oh why oh why – do we report on anything Perez Hilton says. Is he suddenly the bastion of good taste regarding entertainment? Have we all forgotten that he is the one that told us Travis Garland was going to be BETTER than Justin Timberlake? Hello people!!??

    • PDT

      Bingo. Perez is a talentless asswipe, and anyone that actually associates with him on their own accord is asking for trouble. Get out while the gettin’s good, Lady Gaga.

    • kelsey

      Did he? You’re kidding. Why do we listen to this guy?

    • Sarah

      Yeah I don’t really know why Perez and Chelsea twittering is newsworthy.

  • wilson

    Handler > Hilton.

    And I didn’t see the awards but she’s always funny on her late night show…

  • bruno

    because perez hilton’s opinion is so imporatnt to the world. loved handler. and she’s right. dude’s life’s a bomb…a pathetic one at that.

  • Mike

    She was awful, but so is Perez. I just hope they get into a celebrity deathmatch and something good will come out of this.

  • Kanye

    Who the f*ck is Penis Hilton????

  • JMaG

    Sorry to say but she was not a good host. And I do like her and her show. She was just not very funny, seems like she held back. Russell Brand even made fun of some of people last couple years. I really thought the show was just a Dud. Eminem was a nice opening and then it ended with a Lady in a Meat Dress? Really..

    • David

      I totally agree with you. I’ve seen her show, very witty and out there, but she was holding back. Very tamed compared to Chelsea Lately. I was expecting her to go all out and not give a damn. It was a dud of a year.

  • Steve

    Please, just please stop giving Mario the attention he so desperately craves….maybe then he’ll finally go away.
