As soon as Morgan, 47, went to take his seat, Handler fired off by asking, "What are you looking at?" according to Us Weekly. Replied Morgan, "Well, you've either had plastic surgery or a makeover, because you look really hot today."
The backhanded compliment only made Handler, 37, more angry. "Oh, you're so annoying. You're so obnoxious . You wonder why everybody hates you! I specifically covered up so you couldn't look at me and undress me with your molester eyes."
After Morgan made a crack about Hander's drinking — cheap shot! — the two got down to brass tacks and the whole purpose of the interview to begin with — celebrating Morgan's two-year anniversary on CNN. However, things only stayed on track for so long. "You interviewed me last year on my anniversary, which just proved one thing, really."
Handler interjected: "Let me guess -- that you're a better interviewer than I am. Well, I'm not pretending to be a great interviewer. I'm not even pretending to be good at my job."
Joked Morgan, "Both things are clearly apparent today. But I can help you."
Shocker! Handler did not accept his offer. "You can suck my a--," she said. "I mean, really."
