E! Fans The Flames Of The Joan Rivers Vs. Chelsea Handler Feud With New Banner Ads

The E! Channel has brazenly decided to fan the flames of the Joan Rivers/Chelsea Handler feud with new banners ads promoting the network, which feature the legendary performer standing atop the popular late night host and author. The juxtaposition is surprising considering the level of vitriol which the two let loose on separate appearances on The Howard Stern Show back in January.  During Handler’s appearance on the Sirius Radio show on January 24th, Stern asked:

Joan Rivers was critical of you at one point, wasn’t she?

To which Handler replied:

Joan Rivers, I mean, what the fuck do I care about Joan Rivers.

The rest of the exchange continued as follows:

H.S.

It doesn’t bother you?

C.H.
No, it doesn’t bother me. I saw Joan Rivers the other day at E!. She said, ‘Hi.’ Her and that daughter, Melissa.

H.S.
You don’t like Melissa?

C.H.
No, I don’t not like Melissa. But I don’t think about either one of them ever. And I’m like fuck off!

Rivers, who coincidentally or not, was interviewed by Stern the next day, responded by saying:

She’s fine. She’s ordinary. She’s not a genius. She’s an ordinary girl. She was fucking somebody high up in the industry and they gave her a break and she’s doing ok. I walk over and say, ‘Hello, nice to see you.’ And she ignored me!  Who the fuck do you think you are?! That’s number one. So, whatever she is, she’s a drunk. She has her own show. I don’t wish her good luck, I don’t wish her bad luck. I don’t care. I don’t think she’s particularly funny. But don’t you come after me, you whore.

On the bright side, their venting with Stern was actually classier than any given episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
