Chelsea Handler's "Piers Morgan Live" lessons – Palin "not a serious person", 50 Shades of Grey is "trash", sleeping around at work "encouraged"

Dating back to the shows origins in January of 2011, television personality Chelsea Handler has been a welcome breath of fresh – if not inappropriate – air, as one of the most unabashedly honest and least censored "Piers Morgan Live" guests of all-time.

With the 39-year-old set to return Monday evening, we've taken the liberty of revisiting some of Handler's most noteworthy comments and moments.

May 10th, 2011 – Handler stresses the importance of "sleeping around with people you work with".

October 1st, 2012 – Chelsea describes starting to read "50 Shades of Grey", but ultimately gives up, describing the book as "poorly written" and "trash".

November 17th, 2011 – From Ashton to Demi, and everything in between, Handler says open marriages in Hollywood are "typical".

September 28th, 2012 – Amidst confusion between her show and her birth certificate, Chelsea tells Digital Producer Jason Kurtz that she's considering changing her last name to "Lately".

May 10th, 2011 – Chelsea discusses the option of Sarah Palin rising to political prowess in the United States, dismissing the former Alaskan governor as "not a serious person".

    A nice little talk about Chelsea's gobbling her Quaaludes as if this is the "in" thing to do in a social setting. Really, Piers, you're better than this.

      What gives you the impression that Pier's is better than a stupid Quaalude conversation. The man is an eternal bore

        Love your show and your interviews, Piers. Wish you were staying. You were the only anchor on CNN that I could watch for a whole hour. But I don't like, and refuse, to watch Chelsea Handler.

    Why would anyone have her on the show?

      I agree Santana ... she was obnoxious, cold, she was a total #itch from the start. He may have asked her about the queludes however she admitted it as if there were nothing wrong with it.... the problem wasn't Piers it was definitely her. She came off as a total skeeve to me. It sounded as if she sleeps around, gets sloppily wasted and on top of that she's rude and obnoxious. The good new is that usually the star shine burns out quick for celebrities like that .. ie Madonna.

    this woman does what she wants and doesn't care who knows it. she is a little full of her self but she got no kids so that is the way it best. she kind of funny in a back handed way. she pretty but she a lot like guy. which is not bad. guys are good. But is she the kind of woman I want around my kids sure but she best in a bar with a night of drinking and flirting with men all night and partying. I don't get what is a big deal with her. Hippie from the 70's kind of.

    BTW, nice job NOT covering the most interesting part of the interview... when Handler completely own's Morgan.

    No wonder I don't take CNN seriously

    I watched the interesting part of the show that dealt with the missing Malaysia jet then turned the channel to watch Megyn Kelly when the Chelsea Handler interview began. Chelsea is full or herself and dull.

    Piers, you had an interesting topic and knowledgeable guests, why bring on boring Chelsea Handler to talk about her inconsequential life when there were much more important and consequential issues to discuss?

    I thought she was completely rude and who the hell is she coming on insulting him. He has done a great job taking over for Larry King. Don't like her never did....why so mean?

      I agree with you Jim. She was rude and obnoxious from the start. I started a facebook post to boycott her. I think she's a pig!

    I don't like either Piers or Chelsea as interviewers. Chelsea is crude and Piers is totally OPINIONATED and fights tooth and nail with some guests to get his point across instead of letting the guest be properly interviewed. I use to like Piers until I got to know him on this show which I could only stomach a couple of times. We don't need Piers beliefs shoved down our American throats, we already know who we are and what we stand for. Needless to say, I am very disappointed in the way Piers handled this show, it was all about him and what HE believed and stood for and to hell with what you thought. I'm glad the show is ending!! I wish him luck in the future and maybe he's learned something.

    I think Piers is the only "intellect" between the two and enjoy his shows. Her show is a "freak" circus show.... sorry... but, you guys are losing a true asset for CNN and hopefully FOX will be lucky enough to contract him.

    Unfortunately, America has become more "Jerry Springer"... and it is hard to adapt to a true English intellectual. Your loss CNN!!!

    Piers Morgan is authentic and speaks his truth boldly....a rare breed. Would love to see him come back. I loved his show and admired his intellect. Thank you Piers for three years of wonderful interviews on CNN. Would love to see you come back and if not I'm sure you will go on to better gigs. You're awesome!

    The fireworks have really begun! I wonder if the full Kelly-Jones interview will live up to the bloodbath we're seeing.

    There are very a great deal of details prefer that to take into consideration. That’s a great indicate bring up. I provde the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly you can find questions just like the one you retrieve the spot that the most significant factor will likely be working in honest excellent faith. I don?t determine if guidelines have emerged about things like that, but Almost certainly that your chosen job is clearly identified as a good game. Both little ones feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
