Video: 'Chelsea Lately' Sendoff Has A Boatload Of Celebs Parody 'We Are The World'
If there's something Chelsea Handler has amassed over her seven years of hosting Chelsea Lately on E!, it's a lot of celebrity friends. And she brought a hell of a lot of them on stage with her as they bid adieu to her last night before she leaves the network.
And by stars, we're talking about Gwen Stefani, Gerard Butler, Ellen DeGeneres, Miley Cyrus, 50 Cent, Melissa McCarthy, Tim Gunn, Joel McHale, Alanis Morrisette, Dave Grohl, among others. They all got together in a parody version of 1980s supergroup single "We Are The World." Even Stefani gave an intro poking fun at herself for butchering Stephen Colbert's name at the Emmys over the weekend by mispronouncing Handler's name.
You can watch the video below:
Handler is making her way over to Netflix, to host the company's first talk show; however, it's not clear yet when the show will premiere, according to the Hollywood Reporter. And they'll also be giving her a stand-up comedy special next month.
During her last hurrah, she said, "I've made great friends, a lot of enemies, and I have personally lost and gained 3,500 pounds." She also called it "seven years of ridiculous stupidity."
Oh, and she also had a long, naked shower scene with DeGeneres in her final show, talking about why she never invited her onto her talk show.
And kudos to her for yelling out on the E! Network to her fans, "I'll see you on Netflix!"
