Most people have a favorite “Real Housewives” franchise — whether it’s the Southern belles of Atlanta, the money-making ladies of New York or barbies of Orange County — but Chelsea Handler despises them all.
The E! talk show host slammed all of Bravo’s housewives during a recent panel event. “Now, I can pretty much say I don’t want a Real Housewife on my show,” she told her BFF Gwyneth Paltrow.
“I don’t wanna talk to them!” she continued. “I don’t care. Not that they’re a dud; they’ll talk. But I’m not interested in anything they have to say, is the problem.”
This isn’t the first time the 39-year-old comedienne publicly dissed the reality series. She told franchise honcho Andy Cohen that all of the ladies are “sick” during an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live” last year.
“I actually haven’t [had any on my show] because I think it’s sick,” the “Chelsea Latley” host said. “I know that people are watching the show and they watch Bravo. I actually think that franchise is kind of a terrible thing.”
