(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)
“Son of a bitch, it’s good to be back here.” That’s what Blake Shelton said to start his interview on Chelsea Lately last night (Aug. 7). And his segment ends with Chelsea Handler saying, “This is a terrible interview.”
Depending on how easily offended you are, she was probably right. It was all in fun, though. She teased Shelton for coming on the show in August to promote a Christmas CD (“Do you know when Christmas is? Did you come out with CD just so you could come on the show?”). Then she tells him his wife is his better half and criticizes his decision to headline a cruise.
But she does take a minute to reveal that she really does like Shelton: “I like you because you’re a hot mess. And I like that you talk and you tweet about how drunk you are all the time. And you tweet about how drunk you think I am all the time. But you’re really drunk all the time. I’m not all the time.”
There’s no official word on how drunk the two of them were during the terrible interview.
