Trash Talk: Nick Cannon vs. Chelsea Handler
On Monday’s Howard Stern Sirius XM show, spitfire Chelsea Handler took the opportunity to lash out at the Mariah Carey’s ever-fluctuating weight battle. And despite his health troubles, Nick Cannon is standing up for his woman! Nick is taking his beef with Chelsea to the ultimate playground – the Twitterverse.
On Howard’s show, Chelsea spoke of Mariah’s new Jenny Craig ad and her battle with the bulge, saying, “She’s worse than Elizabeth Taylor.” The late night hostess continued,“She’s just so ridiculous with her body. You see her one day and she’s like 50 pounds heavier or lighter. I mean, what is she doing? I don’t even understand what hemisphere people like that operate in. There’s nothing real about her and her Hello Kitty whatever.”
Nick then took to Twitter for a string of defensive (but positive) tweets:
-"I hear @ChelseaHandler is out there talking shit about my wife again! She's lucky I'm trying to live right now! Jesus my cup runneth over."
-"I think @ChelseaHandler is still bitter that she got blasted on my radio show! It's okay I still love you!"
-"When miserable people see happiness they must attack it."
-"You know me, I'm always up for a good joke or wise crack but when people talk about my family the "Hood" in me wants to come out!"
-"I've learned cooler heads prevail. Life is too short to focus on negativity!"
Please note that Nick calls Chelsea bitter, negative, says she’s lucky he is sick, says she makes "the hood" in him want to come out and that he has a cooler head than she does – but then essentially says he is too positive to be phased by her comments. Hey Nicky, sure sounds like you are focusing on negativity. Simply, tweeting these kind of responses kind of take away your holier-than-thou leg to stand up. Nick, just because you hurl insults too and then say Life’s too short after being negative – doesn’t mean you aren’t being negative, it just means you are being passive aggressive.
As for Chelsea's mean-spirited digs: let's be honest, those Mariah Carey/Jenny Craig ads are ridiculous (ridiculously amazing). It’s hard not to mock them. I can't watch them without with out laughing and thinking – who do these people think they are fooling!? There aren’t enough smoke, mirrors and cut-away camera angles in the world to fool me into believing that Mariah Carey now has a hot bod. That just ain’t happening. But really, no one really likes to hear Chelsea Handler, a skinny woman built like a coat rack, whose main diet is probably vodka, pixie sticks and baby's blood, slam a woman who is curvier by nature. It’s just bitchy. But that's kind of Chelsea Handler’s thing. It's made her famous and Nick Cannon faux im-better-than-this tweets aren’t gonna stop that mouth of hers.
But good job Nick for standing up for your woman, I love a man who defends his lady’s honor (and weight). Clearly Mariah has trained you well.
