And this is why America loves Sandra Bullock. She wins an Oscar, lays low, gets cheated on, raises her gorgeous baby and then surprises everyone by going on TV and flashing her t-ts. Sandra Bullock strips! Brilliant. Too bad it was all for Chelsea Handler. She didn’t flash Keanu Reeves her boobs in Speed. I only got ass cheeks in that Chris O’Donnell/Ernest Hemingway bore and Sandra definitely didn’t let Big Mike sneak a peek. Why Chelsea? I don’t understand this woman! Hollywood A-listers are falling over themselves to promote her new show. Why???
Because it’s the f-cking Catalina Wine Mixer. No, sorry. That made no sense. I just think that’s one of the funniest lines of all time and should be the answer for every question that has no good explanation.
So let’s set the stage. Sandra made a guest appearance in a skit for the Chelsea Handler Show to publicize it’s move to a new studio. Sandra interrupts Chelsea’s shower with a message from Oprah. “You have a responsibility to be a respectable talk show host. This comes directly from Oprah’s mouth to my ear, to my mouth, out of my mouth, into your ear, down your body, out your vagina, up my vagina and out my ass. The overall theme of this message is that you are a huge disappointment. Just because you’re the only person on late-night television who has tiny little lady bits does not give you a free pass. You have a responsibility to be a role model to young girls… and you need to lay off the booze.” She then slaps her and tells Chelsea to, “stop sleeping with your guests. That is why I’ve not done your show; I do not wanna sleep with you.”
It’s actually pretty funny and I’m usually down with anything Sandra decides to do including Love Potion Number 9 and The Lake House. Just yesterday I got the itch to watch Practical Magic. It’s Halloween movie time!
So is this a woman thing? Are all these A-listers like Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon and tearful bestie Jennifer Aniston on the Chelsea train because she is the only late-night female host? I can get behind that. I’m all for someone kicking Jimmy Fallon out of his job one day. And I’d be cool with Chelsea doing it. She is funny. But I just get the feeling she likes being a part of the cool kids’ club too much. She’s not like David Letterman. He keeps his distance. He’s not one of the celebrities and therefore can rip on them and talk over their heads for much of the interviews. I don’t think Chelsea can do that. More importantly, I don’t think she wants to. It would jeopardize her coolness.
But let’s give credit where it’s due. Chelsea Handler got Sandra Bullock naked and back on the TV screen. It was a good day for all of us. No need to over think the situation.
