I love Chelsea Handler! She cracks me up and I look forward to the comedy relief she supplies but I was bummed when she dismissed the importance of a gluten-free diet on Wednesday night.
Handler was reporting that Elizabeth Hasselbeck has been accused of plagarism by Susan Hassett, who says she stole her book idea when Hasselbeck wrote The G-Free Diet. Handler said dismissively, “What’s Celiac Disease? Oh I guess that’s when you can’t eat gluten, huh?”
Being a close friend of Jenny McCarthy, who is gluten-free along with her son for his health, I thought Handler would be more respectful and educated on the gluten-free diet and its importance for Celiac Disease sufferers like my gluten-free kid.
Get real, Chelsea. Millions of people suffer from Celiac Disease. They deserve your blessing.
