Chelsea Handler stopped by to promote the new season of “Chelsea Lately” and to discuss how Oprah made her cry. The former Queen of Daytime had pressed Chelsea to recall a psychic medium who once channeled her mother. “50 percent of it is true … I believe people hang around,” Chelsea said. Howard was surprised that Chelsea bought into stuff like that

“I couldn’t believe you went on ‘America’s Got Talent,'” Chelsea shot back, which got a laugh out of Howard. “I would think you’re too intellectual to be on such a shambolic disaster of a show.”

Howard then dived into Chelsea’s sex life, asking her about admission to being bad at relationships but great at sex. “I’m not someone who’s easy to be with. I demand a lot but I deliver a lot,” Chelsea explained. “I had sex this weekend. Just with some guy. A guy I know from a long time ago.”

Further, Chelsea no longer accepts any substitutes, revealing to Howard: “I don’t masturbate. … [But] when I had a lot of time, when I waited tables, I would just sit in bed and go off on myself.”

On Angelina and Aniston

Asked about her friendship with Jennifer Aniston, Chelsea said they weren’t ones to talk on the phone. “We email a lot. And then, when we’re in the same city, we see each other,” Chelsea said. She also insisted her opinion of Angelina Jolie preceded her friendship with Aniston. “I think Angelina Jolie is kind of evil. When a girl doesn’t have any girlfriends, there’s a reason,” Chelsea said.

Chelsea Is Welcoming to Her Guests

In addition to befriending her female “Chelsea Lately” guests, Chelsea admitted to hooking up with “a couple” of the male ones. “Whenever I’m single, they’re like, ‘Who do you want us to book?’ [And] I’ll look at a list of names and be like, ‘Get him, get him, get him,” Chelsea said.

50 Cent was one such guest, as was animal trainer Dave Salmoni. “He was amazing in bed,” Handler said of Salmoni. “He was like this manly man. He would throw me around. … But he was too stupid to put up with for too long.”

Ted Harbert Is Like a Little Kid

Before she left, Howard had to ask how Chelsea felt about her ex, NBC programming chairman Ted Harbert. Chelsea said she still thinks it’s weird they dated for so long.

“I like Ted but now I just feel sad for him. He’s just so silly,” Chelsea said. “If he wanted to go to dinner, I’d probably just do drinks.” Chelsea feels Ted tries too hard to be liked or cool when, according to her, he’s neither. “He’s just like a little kid who would interrupt everyone in school with the right answer,” Chelsea said.
