Chelsea Handler Slams The Real Housewives Franchise: “I Think It’s Embarrassing”

Chelsea Handler has made it pretty vocal her dislike for reality television in especially the Real Housewives. In a new interview with Variety via Radar Online, the 41-year-old comedian didn't hold back and slammed the whole Housewives franchise calling them embarrassing.

“Reality TV’s pretty tricky for me. I don’t really watch anything like that, because I think it’s brain-sucking,” she said. “There’s a difference between watching a chef show, which doesn’t feel like a reality show compared to the Housewives. Those shows can, I think, not only lower your IQ, but really just knock the wind out of you, because we’re all here in this business.”

The former Chelsea Lately host then turned her focus to the greater good, shaming the Housewives franchise for making little difference in the world.

“You want to do something a little bit meaningful, because we’re not saving the planet or anything, but we want to contribute in a positive way, in a way that makes a difference or makes somebody feel something,” she continued. “I think reality television, unless it’s inspirational, which it very rarely is, I think it’s embarrassing. It’s embarrassing state of affairs that we’re in.”
