Apparently the folks over at GLAAD don't get E! with their basic cable package. How else to explain this oversight?

On her show last night, Chelsea Handler expressed utter shock that the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation did not even include Chelsea Lately in its latest report on how well TV is doing when it comes to depicting gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders. 

"I can't speak for the rest of the network, but at Chelsea Lately, we're knocking it out of the park. We've hit a homo run," she remarked. "We always talk about gay issues and [sidekick] Chuy and I were king and queen of the Gay Pride Parade."

Speaking of parades…

To prove her point further, Chelsea proceeded to bring out various members of her staff, including "the biggest gay in captivity," a person "transitioning from albino man to albino woman" and somebody who, well, Chelsea wasn't quite sure "what this is."

"Like it or not, this is the face of Chelsea Lately," she concluded. "I'll be expecting an apology, which I assume will be on some hermaphrodite's stationery."
