Never say that Chelsea Handler doesn't tell it like it is. The comedian called out CNN host Piers Morgan on his show, Piers Morgan Live, for not paying attention to her during an interview.

After Morgan tweeted during a commercial break, Handler launched into him once the show returned, saying, "You can't even pay attention for 60 seconds. You're a terrible interviewer."

Morgan responded by saying that Handler wasn't "keeping [his] attention," which really set  Handler off on the importance of being gracious to your guests on a talk show.

Handler  would know something about having a talk show as Chelsea Lately has been running on E! since 2007.

Handler ended the conversation with a final jab about Morgan's show recently getting cancelled, saying, "Maybe that's why your job is coming to an end."

It doesn't appear that Morgan and Handler have that much bad blood between them as Piers tweeted after the show, "If I'm such a terrible interviewer, Chelsea, how come everyone's now tweeting and debating our interview?" He signed off with a cheeky "Mwah."
