In a Wednesday sketch on Handler’s “Chelsea Lately” to celebrate 1,081st episode, O’Brien gets into the “Lately” staff showers to reclaim what was his: his parking spot and studio.
“This is my studio. You stole it, remember. I still have the key. Plus, this is the best water pressure in Hollywood,” he says in the sketch.
As The Los Angeles Times¬†reminds, Chandler’s talk show took over O’Brien’s old “Tonight Show” studio on the Universal lot last year. The late-night host is well-known for her deadpan, and it’s really fun to see O’Brien, who gets really goofy around pretty girls, stand his ground.
“Just be a man. Admit what you’ve done!” O’Brien tells Handler. ¬†“I am not a man,” she replies, making it a point to grab her bare breasts.
“That’s debatable,” he replies, looking down at her. She insists: “Everybody knows that I am the first woman in late night!”
“No, that was Joan Rviers,” he says. “Well, have you taken a good look at her recently?” Handler asks. “I know,” he goes on. “But I’m still convinced that whatever that is, it’s female.”
Last year, the Oscar winner, Sandra Bullock, appeared in a similar sketch to bully the boozy Handler into getting her act together, a message she claims “came straight from daytime talk show queen Oprah.”
In the comedic video, the ‘Proposal’ actress interrupts Handler in the middle of a shower to attack it. The duo stand face-to-face with pixelated breasts as a furious Bullock rages.
“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,‚ÄĚ Bullock says.
“You have a responsibility to be a role model to young girls… and you need to lay off the booze,”¬†she adds.
She later then slaps Handler, who had been previously linked to rapper 50 Cent, and told her to “stop sleeping with your guests”.
She goes on, adding: “That is why I’ve not done your show; I do not want to sleep with you.”
The host then protests, “I don’t sleep with that many anymore ‚ÄĒ just some of the rappers,” prompting Sandra to slap her again.
Before walking out of the shower, the actress pokes fun at the host‚Äôs naked body: “All of this is disgusting. This is [bleep]ing sick. Bye.”
After the sketch, Handler revaled that the Osacar winner didn’t go completely naked for the skit, reports The New York Post.
The sketch comes the next day after NBC confirmed that¬†that Jimmy Fallon will replace Jay Leno on ‚ÄúThe Tonight Show‚ÄĚ in 2014.¬†Reports claim that Fallon, currently the host of ‚ÄúLate Night,‚ÄĚ will begin hosting the show in February.
Leno will leave the famous night show after 22 years of hosting it. The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon will be executive produced by Saturday Night Live‚Äės Lorne Michaels, who currently heads Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Fallon‚Äôs Tonight Show will broadcast from a renovated set at 30 Rock in New York City.
