This Month on Chelsea: September 2017
Oh, hello! Everything you need to know about last month’s episodes of Chelsea is all here. You’re welcome.
New month, new Chelsea episodes! Chelsea was on vacation for a week or so last month, but she’s back and as obnoxious as ever. Buckle up.
September 1st: We Are All Sharks
Let’s all take a moment to remember Tammy. She was awesome. RIP, pup.
Guests: Reese Witherspoon, Kathy Bates, Dan Rather, Flulu Borg, Fortune Feimster
Topics: Movies, Netflix Originals, and Balls.
Yay! White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is back! They dish on what’s going on in the white house this week including pardons and the terrible loss of Steve Bannon.
Reese Witherspoon is the first to hit the couch, there to plug her new movie Home Again. They talk dogs, Big Little Lies (she said they have no ideas for a second season, by the way), and her new role as a producer. Witherspoon began her own company that buys books and in turn makes them into movies with great roles for women.
Next up is Oscar-winner Kathy Bates. They talk about Bates’ new Netflix Original show Disjointed and her experience with cancer. After having breast cancer 5 years ago and then battling lymphedema, she is now a spokesperson for the Lymphatic Education & Research Network.
Chelsea then gets to interview the one, the only, the MAN—Dan Rather. They discuss the changes in journalism and how the standards have changed. His new book is called What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism.
Next we’re up to the desk with Chelsea’s niece and the very delightful Flula Borg. They sent Flula on a bull riding adventure.
September 8th: Comfortably Naked
Guests: James Corden, Bella Thorne, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Vince Wilfork, Jacob Soboroff
Topics: Being naked at stoplights, guns, and the debt ceiling.
Chelsea keeps insisting on bringing out her staff despite my telling her it isn’t working and begging her to stop. This week Jiffy and Dan talk about bots.
First to the couch this week is the host of The Late Late Show, James Corden. If you don’t watch that show, just know this guy is always wonderful. Mostly they discuss being naked. You can catch episodes of Carpool Karaoke now on Apple Music.
Next Chelsea goes fishing with Superbowl Champion Vince Wilfork. They hang out on the boat and have a nice chit-chat.
Next up is social media star Bella Thorne. She uses her influence to speak out and speak up on important issues. They discuss how we could all use a little more nice in our life. Preach ladies.
Chelsea then sits down with New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. She’s a lovely lady with some great points of view.
Up to the desk is MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff to explain the debt ceiling.
September 15th: Handler and High Water
Guests: Jessica Biel, Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer, Andrea Savage, Evan McMullin, S.E. Cupp
Jessica Biel is first to the couch. The discuss The Sinner (on USA) and how great it is to have so many platforms now for shows. Good to know: apparently this lady is big into crystals, past lives, and all that jazz.
Next Chelsea is off to Bermuda to chat with Jimmy Spithill and talk America’s Cup.
She also takes a sailing lesson and gets to watch hot guys race boats.
Don’t faint. Chelsea welcomes some Republicans to the couch. The host of HLN’s S.E. Cupp: Unfiltered and CNN commentator S.E. Cupp and 2016 Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin. They discuss the future of the party and who they are now.
Continuing with the theme, Chelsea takes the Broad City (Comedy Central) gals and her BFF to the LA river. They kayak and chat about their relationships, work, and weed.
Finally, we’re at the desk. Chelsea welcomes mom and star of TruTV’s I’m Sorry, Andrea Savage. Old friends, they talk about how parenthood changes your life.
September 22nd: Game Changers
Guests: Emma Stone, Billie Jean King, Justin Hartley, Alyssa Mastromonaco, Randy Bryce, Mary McCormack, Andre Iguodala
Topics: Sports and Paul Ryan
What a treat! Kellyanne Conway is here with her tips on surviving in the White House.
First up to the couch is Justin Hartley of NBC’s This is Us. They talk about waiting tables and the new season of his show.
Next Chelsea sits down with the always adorable Emma Stone and championship tennis player Billie Jean King. This interview is a hoot. They’re promoting Battle of the Sexes, in theaters now.
Next to the couch is Randy Bryce, who wants to unseat Paul Ryan, Obama’s former Deputy Chief of Staff Alyssa Mastromonaco, and Chelsea’s bestie Mary McCormack. Randy is an everyday guy who really thinks he can make a difference in Washington. I think you can too, Randy. It’s time for a change. Get motivated, everyone! We can do it!
Now it’s over to the desk. Chelsea welcomes two-time NBA champion Andre Iguodala to explain basketball.
September 29th: The Art of the Kneel
Guests: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Macklemore, Diego Luna, Reggie Bush, DeRay Mckesson
Topics: New TV shows,
First to the couch is Maggie Gyllenhaal. Her new series The Deuce is now on HBO. They talk her new show, porn, and James Franco. Those all seem to go together.
Next to the couch is activist and podcaster DeRay Mckesson and football player Reggie Bush. They talk NFL, taking a knee, and Trump. Of course, Colin Kaepernick is a part of that discussion.
You can catch more talk on Pod Save America and Pod Save The People.
Chelsea next goes in search of puppers with British accents. She hits up the Crufts dog show, the biggest dog show in the world. This is by far the best part of the month. Dogs, dogs, dogs!
I feel a little sorry for the next guest to the couch. He has to compete with all those dogs. But if anyone can do it, Diego Luna can. He’s starring in the new film Flatliners. They toss around the idea of a threesome, discuss his new remake, and talk about the afterlife. He was in Mexico at the time of the earthquake and put together a crowdfunding campaign to help. You can donate by going to donate.omaze.com/mexico. If you aren’t familiar with Omaze, celebrities donate AMAZING prizes in exchange for donations to a cause of their choice.

Finally, Chelsea welcomes Macklemore to the desk to teach her how to break it down.
