Chelsea Handler Hosts VMAs -- How Did She Do?

Chelsea Handler hosts the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday (September 12) in Los Angeles.

“My plan was to stay sober the entire show,” the 35-year-old comedienne joked. “But in an interesting twist, I am as high as a kite. That’s the last time I do a prayer circle with Snoop Dogg.”

Later in the evening, Chelsea joined the cast of Jersey Shore in a hot tub. When she climbed out of the tub, Chelsea had spontaneously grown a baby bump!

HOW DO YOU THINK Chelsea did as a first-time host of the VMAs? She was the first woman to host the show since Roseanne Barr in 1994!

    Thank God, they finally got rid of the moronic, Russell Brand. That guy is more overrated than Avatar.

    She was not funny, her jokes were stale and bombed big time. One of the worst host I can remember.

    I think Russell Brand did a great job before. He has a wicked British sense of humor. As far as Chelsea is concerned, she needs to keep her jobs confined to her late show. She’s cheesy, vulgar and a c-unit and that works out great for her show but the VMA’s are on a much higher level than she could ever hope to achieve in celebrity status.

    Sorry,Jared,she didn’t take the cake tonight. And was she a little buzzed in her intro? I REALLY have come to like Chelsea lately(excuse the pun), but this wasn’t her gig. She had a few moments (her coming in and spoofing GaGa, her “wig debate” with the Biebster,etc.), but she needed to bring Chuy and her panel with her to make the hosting duties complete…LOVE YOU,CHELS,REALLY I DO!

    Anthony Says:

    I only think she’s actually funny when she has someone to kind of play off of.. When it’s just her on her own trying to be funny it seems too forced and bombs. Florence,Eminem,LP were all good and Katy Perry and Ashley Greene looked hot other then that I thought the show was horrible to sit through…

    She's ridiculous! Says:

    She sucks !

    Mari Says:

    @kinm: According to her imdb profile she is indeed 35 years old and in the pictures there she looks that age as well. But on the pictures provided her on JJ she looks close to 50 rather than mid thirties.

    Jokergurl Says:

    She acted a little cranky, or blitzed to be honest I can’t figure out which. She’s usually really funny in a sarcastic deadpan way, I didn’t really see that tonight.

    Lane Says:

    Chelsea was not herself. The material written for her was poor, the big question is why did she perform it? Her impromptu comments and comedic timing on her nightly show are always funny and on cue. This is a mystery only she can answer and I think she will in time. When she sees the playback, stone cold sober, Chelsea will be horrified. The show itself was over produced, the graphics were busy and blocked the screen. I turned it off after the first hour. The VMA show can only be described as a catastrophic bomb.

    Sean Says:

    She’s funny on her show but was awful tonight. Monologue tanked and her skits weren’t even funny. I expected better

    Shanice Says:

    Personally I think she did a pretty good job. I loved her sarcasm, although I feel her jokes could’ve been better :/ but I was def laughing for awhile and I loved the lindsay lohan skit <33. But I believe she was scripted a little too much cause she’s def not like that on her show but it’s MTV ya know, they gotta have some censorship somewhere rite…?!
    And cut her some slack guys jeez, obviously it is her first time and I think she did great :)

    Sorry Chelsea Handjob fans, the old hag is just as unfunny on a big cable show, as she is day in and day out, on her small one….
    Chelsea Handler panned as VMA host
    Comedian among ‘worst in show’s history,’ writes N.Y. Times

    When MTV announced last month that E!’s Chelsea Handler would be hosting this year’s Video Music Awards, it was met with some surprise. So how did she do Sunday on one of music’s most star-studded nights?
    “She was among the worst in show’s history — purposefully out-of-touch, with brief, alarming flashes of off-color racial humor,” the New York Times said in its analysis of the two-hour telecast.
    Handler “never looked comfortable, undone by nerves, brittle material and the wattage of those around her,” the N.Y. Times concluded.
    The Washington Post held the same sentiment, noting that “a string of flat punch lines felt a few degrees below crass.”
    And even though Handler urged the crowd in her opening monologue “to be on their worst behavior,” the evening was met with little to no controversy.
    Though Handler is known for being brash and inappropriate on her late-night show “Chelsea Lately,” Entertainment Weekly made the point that Handler’s entrance — in a Lady Gaga get-up, no less — was quite standard since the singer is “the easiest and the lamest … target around.”
    AOL TV recognized Handler’s efforts, but it wasn’t enough since “most of her skits fell flat.” The reviewer even blasted the lack of A-listers at the ceremony, writing that the presenters “were decidedly C-list” and “Hollywood just didn’t show up for this shindig.”
    Who would show up when this ish is hosting? She insults everyone under the sun, and it’s not even funny – she’s just a b*tch azz’d hag. Looks like she’s taking after her ‘friends,’ and showing she’s just as boring, fug and talentless as they are.

    The whole show was a joke

    WHO IS SALT ? Says:

    I don’t know who she is but she looks washed up (like she has been doing prostitution all her life), dried up, old and kinda trash. I heard many things she said and she is vulgar.
    I beleive you need more sophistication and class for that type of show. You can have a sense of humour but choose someone with a witty one, more beautiful and with some sophistication.
    That chelsea handler is better to host p0rn awards or something in the genre. she is not fit for the VMA’s. She reeks of obscenities

    Sam Says:

    Chelsea kind of bombed tonight. I have no idea why, she is normally hilarious. Hosting a big show like this is not so easy,
    The set was spectacular but Lady Gaga over and over again was beyond boring.
    Enough already.

    busted Says:

    Bring back Russell and let this nasty HAG stay on TV..or better yet have her off TV period.. Her jokes were gross and so is she..

    How did she do? She Bombed and ruined an already Dlist show and made it Flist…

    SHE is disgusting and inappropriate for any kind of Awards’ show.. this is what happens when you bring Trash into the house.

    …i’m sorry, i gotta be honest.. she wasn’t funny to me. and i think she’s hilarious. that show was just boring..

    WHO IS SALT ? Says:

    And am i the only one to notice that she has a VERY masculine body type ? Her legs are terribly manly. her flabby upper body type with no waist whatsoever and flat ass also screams : man. No feminine poise either, just crass and distastefulness.
    , If it’s the best that America can do with the pool of beautiful talented people out there, it’s sad.
