Chelsea Handler: "I encourage sleeping around with people you work with"

Piers Morgan's hour-long, revealing interview with Chelsea Handler touches on politics, her career and her comedic heroes. But she also talks about love – revealing that she has "properly" been in love twice. Also: "I don't think it really matters if you're in love with somebody and I was. It had nothing to do with him being my boss, it's just how we came together," she said of her former boss and boyfriend, Ted Harbert. "I encourage sleeping around with people you work with. I encourage interoffice romance. "

But she has never been married – here's why:

"It hasn't seemed like the most appealing thing in the world to me," she said about marriage. "And I'm also not that excited to get divorced. So I figured the best way to avoid that is to avoid getting married in the first place."

Watch the full interview – tonight at 9pmET/PT!

        Rick, I think you need to calm down and read over your comments and lack of response to them. You are a little too preoccupied in encouraging your inner 12 year old girl. Not everybody needs to appreciate her dry sense of humor but you just look like an ass and you sound horrifically immature and malice. Sorry to be blunt with you but I could not believe the comments and thought that I should give you an outside perspective into the way you are portraying yourself to others. Another thing, your persistence in commenting on her hair is ridiculous. She has thin hair and having heat and chemicals applied everyday is not only environmentally damaging but terrible towards your health. I think she is trying to keep her locks intact as opposed to wearing a wig by the time she is 45 as well as just simply not giving a sh-t about what people like you think. I respect her decision to wear less makeup then most and not constantly having her hair looking like she just got finished with a beauty pageant. I don't think her intention is to make more woman feel comfortable in their skin but indirectly she sends a message of not only promoting self confidence within your natural skin but also not letting tasteless words that people like you spew discourage them. Just some food for thought 🙂

    Why was Rumsfeld given media time? He is arrogant liar.From The Chaney & Bush Co. They have disgraced the name of our country. We could have attacked Bin laden 10 years back. Did we not attack and kill Sadam Husain, Bhutto, Bin laden on foreign soil did we not?

    Why were are service men and women lied to and killed?

      Do you mean we could nave him given to s when Clinton? Do you mean when he was hiding in the Tora Bora Mts., it would only have been easy as finding a needle in a haystack, actually more like a needle in 10 haystacks. Rumsfeld never lied, unless Clinton, Gore, Kerry, Biden, Powell,members of the intelligence community and and many other members did also.

    Piers, how about turning your brain back on, just because you are on CNN please do not sink into the darkness. How about asking Miss C about the Obama poetry party at the White house or the high cost of education with sinking grade levels and low graduation in minority schools?

    Piers morgan you really suck and have no business being on television. You are a craven parasite that relies on hackneyed techniques of yellow journalism to get your point across.

    Chelsea Handler likes to come off as being smart, however see revealed that she's not as smart as she likes to think she is...I was very disappointed to see how little she knew about politics, she knew nothing specific about politics...only how she felt. Although Piers let her off the hook and didn't corner her, he couldn't cover up where she was really flubbing. Something else I was surprised to see was that she can't handle being the brut of the joke. She likes to criticize herself but when others do it and criticize her, she can't handle it.

    I havien't watched a whole Piers show yet and thought I would start. Does he always start speaking before the guest is done speaking? He drew some good things from Chelsea but he missed some as he spoke over her. Seems like he's in too much of a hurry to get to his next comment/question.

    piers morgan is the most awkward forced interviewer I have ever witnessed - how did this man land this position - he is terrible.

    Enough on the Madonna wise cracks! Chelsy went on this goosy binge about how rapper 50 Cent was nothing like his image and what a nice guy he was and than ragged on Madonna admitting she never met her. Madonna has done more for charity than these two crass individuals ever will and the fact that they are exploting her major star power for their own personal advantage is disgusting. Enough Piers! Madonna wants nothing to do with either of you. Quit the crass name dropping.

    Who picked this show as a replacement for Larry King's time slot? I hope they've already picked Piers Morgan's replacement. So many of us watch just because we're used to tuning in to CNN at this time, but we are slowly discovering other television. I thought Piers was totally disrespectful and degrading to Chelsea all night. Chelsea has her arena and what she does is appropriate there, but Piers to try to hold court with her on on his show was disgusting and he did an awful job. I can't believe this man follows Anderson Cooper. Anderson should be insulted!!

    watched the interview here in the philippines via cnn channel...I totally enjoyed it. I'd say she is very funny and opinionated as always. Piers asked so many relevant questions. Chealsea answered quickly and briefly right. It kept the interview moving to understanding her truly in less than an hour. More please.

    WHy doesn't P.Morgan bump up the quality of the "celebs"? He didn't have the camp feel of Larry and he takes them seriously – which makes the show ridiculous.

    I wanted to post you the bit of remark in order to thank you over again for the incredible concepts you've provided above. This is quite strangely generous of people like you giving without restraint all some people could have offered for sale as an e-book to get some cash for themselves, notably considering the fact that you might have done it if you ever considered necessary. These thoughts also served to become fantastic way to understand that other people online have a similar fervor like my very own to learn many more regarding this condition. I think there are numerous more pleasant situations ahead for individuals who check out your website.
