Heather McDonald is ready to put her feud with Chelsea Handler behind her. In fact, she already has.
“Chelsea and I are good, it’s all fine,” McDonald told ET. “You know, that’s what happens when things get taken out of context … we became The Real Housewives of Stand-Up. Quite honestly, I really started to feel for the girls when I went through that week. But no, we’re good, we’ve talked, and we’re fine.”
McDonald and Handler found themselves in a war of words after McDonald made some comments about her time on Chelsea Lately on Theo Von and Matthew Cole Weiss’ Allegedly podcast earlier this year. McDonald said she “100 percent lived in fear” while working on the show, and didn’t agree with the way Handler treated her staff.
At the time, Handler shot down McDonald’s allegations.
“It’s not an internment camp, she can quit,” Handler told ET’s Cameron Mathison. “So that’s silly. Because if you’re that fearful – she was taking clothes out of my closet every other day. She wasn’t that fearful.”
Now, McDonald says she’s “excited” to tune into her former boss’ new Netflix show, set to premiere May 11. She’s also focused on her own TV projects.
“I’m on tour right now,” McDonald shared. “I’m just doing a lot of stand-up and my podcast, Juicy Scoop, is doing great … and then a lot of other shows that I can’t talk about that I’m working on, that hopefully will come to fruition.”
ET caught up with McDonald over the weekend at the launch party for The Real Housewives of Orange County stars Heather and Terry Dubrow’s new book. For more on that project, check out the video below.
