Chelsea Handler thinks open marriages are "so typical"

Comedian Chelsea Handler sat down with Piers Morgan tonight to talk about her new $25 million deal with E!, politics and more. Only a few short hours before Handler sat down in the chair the world learned Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are divorcing after six years of marriage. "They've probably had a lot of open marriage type situations," Handler says. She thinks open marriages are "so typical" but she says she's "interested in something that's unoriginal."

    What an obnoxious and vulgar female. No surprise she's never received a marriage proposal. How could anybody stand to be around her more than 3 seconds.

    The very first comment out of this vulgar individual's mouth was "you must be jewish" in response to Morgan's interest to know about her recent, lucrative contract. How crass, base and does not a fine mind make but it certainly allows a platform for which the ignorant can bask in their own glory.

    I really like Chelsea. I think she is right about all the candidates that is just as qualified as all of them but Ron Paul. She says she reads and I would like for her to read John Locke's Second Treatise of Government to get more qualified then all those morons running for president including Obama. But I would like to explain to her about taxes or taxation. Taxes are not something exclusive from the other principles of property that regulate every aspect of government. Lawful taxes cannot harm or threaten the ownership of property of the people or individual citizens. That means that wages cannot be taxed at all and that property cannot be taxed at all with the threat of selling to others if not paid. Wages are not income but an even trade of labor for its worth. The reason for this is that the sole purpose of government is to protect the property of the people and therefore it cannot be paid for or supported by a means that undermines its very purpose or its demise is built in to its means of support. Property tax is confiscation of the property of the people and the charging of rent to the tenant. We have all lost our property to the state making the state unlawful. It is not a matter of the amount of taxes but the principle behind the type of tax that is critical to lawful government. No one owns property any longer in America not even Chelsea and she needs to learn that. We are all tenants on state property – pure socialism.

      John Locke... tenants on state property? that makes sense, of course your opinion is based on 250 year old philosophy, because it has no bearing on today's reality.

        Jon, What would you call the owner charging money for a person to occupy or possess a property? I thought you said, "That makes sense." So if something was written 350 years ago it automatically has no bearing on today even if it makes sense? That would mean truth is time sensitive. That would mean we must throw out truth and start over with untruth every 10 years. Or is it every 100 years? That indeed is a new and modern way of viewing the world. So why is Locke not applicable today? So we have changed the definition of ownership into the privilege of paying the state money to possess our own homes or we are evicted. I don't like the new applicable modern definition of ownership.

    I don't know if you realize it (I doubt it) but Chelsea Handler made a fool of you. Watching you with her reminded me of some poor high school schlep trying to come onto a hot chick. Boy are you over your head. Maybe it was suppose to be entertaining. It wasn't. Well, at least your ratings were good????

    II was extremely disappointed when Piers Morgan, commenting on Chelsea Handler's new $24 Million contract, did not respond appropriately to her question "Are you Jewish?". I don't know whether Ms. Handler is Jewish or not. If she is, her question, even jokingly, was in poor taste. If she is not Jewish, her comment was antisemitic and only encourages more of the same money-related stereotype comments from others. Piers Morgan should have clearly rebuked her. I would have expected more from him.

      Her father is Jewish and her mother is Morman. She was born in New Jersey. I think Morgan replied that he was Irish Catholic.

    Piers Morgan. You cant flirt like people do in England abroad. I would say that in England you say you find a woman attractive because you want her to know that she is still all right, if you dont it is as if she had suddenly turned into an old bag, she wont think you are trying to hit on her with your wife heavily pregnant, nor will you be trying to hit on her normally, but you say that sort of hting abroad and everyone will be sure you are making a seriouse attempt to get her into your bed. English flirting is not well taken in other countries, I should know i live abroad. There is even a Simpson episode on this topic, of the english man trying to get everyone elses wives. rose macaskie.

    When Chelsea's show first started a few years back, I loved it. I think she is really a smart, savvy woman: capable of combing other late night shows with the craziness of SNL. Brilliant, actually. Lately the show has been selling out to stupid toilet humor: anyone republican is moronic, she loves gay people but constantly accuses guests of being gay, always has a side line, for example: "well, so and so was on drugs at this time, which I totally approve of. . ." It, and she, has become, predictable. What was funny conversation and harmless gossip has become another breeding ground for unfounded opinion. Her mother dabbled in Mormon but was buried out of synagogue. Who cares, just making a point. Otherwise, I think she will use her money well. I think she is quietly generous and does give: she's taken care of alot of people around her.. I just wish she would get back on point with her show, open her mind politically as both sides stink. You're 36 now? We're sick of pee-pee jokes.
