Heather McDonald is speaking out about her time on Chelsea Lately — and it sounds like the show was very tough on the comedian!
Apparently, the regular roundtable guest found the show’s star, Chelsea Handler, very intimidating at points — even going so far as to say she FEARED the famed TV host and author!!
Speaking on Matt Weiss and Theo Von‘s podcast, McDonald revealed she was blindsided by Handler when the show ended, getting a message out of nowhere from Chelsea’s reps:
“Her manager was on a red carpet and said Chelsea, the show, was ending this year.”
It sounds like McDonald was walking on eggshells while working with Chelsea Lately, too:
“I lived in fear, 100% lived in fear. I enjoyed my time there, I was happy, but something could happen and my heart would be beating and I’d be like ‘is this it?'”
Above all, McDonald had this to say about Handler as a person:
“I think she’s a good person, I don’t agree with how she treats relationships in her life. I think she’s missing out by dumping people. When you’re in her life and you’re her friend, it’s the greatest thing. She makes you feel so special until you’re not.”
