The late-night wars are ugly, but not like this. Chelsea Handler and Conan O’Brien stripped naked for an outrageous “Chelsea Lately” skit that aired Wednesday — curiously, the same day NBC announced “The Tonight Show” take-over, Part 2.
For the bizarre bit that gives real meaning to the term “slapstick comedy,” Conan and Chelsea bare all, appearing nude in the shower, where Conan confronts Chelsea over stealing his “Tonight Show” studio and his primo parking spot (and a back massager).
“How do people keep getting in here?!” Chelsea exclaims with her breasts blurred out. (Her shower previously had been invaded by Sandra Bullock for a sketch last fall.)
Things get weird and quickly escalate as Chelsea notes Conan has “anger issues” and she starts slapping the crap out of him, daring him to hit her back. Other, uh, body parts are slapped too. They both end up with black eyes. (Meanwhile, your eyes may be assaulted by a disturbing cameo of Chuy — also naked — at the end of the late-night fight.)

Earlier on his TBS talk show, O’Brien congratulated Jimmy Fallon on scoring the coveted “Tonight Show” hosting gig — a job that was Conan’s for less than year before it was swiped back by Jay Leno.
“I want to congratulate Jimmy, that is a really fun gig,” O’Brien laughed. “It is! … It’s a fun gig and you know what? Jimmy is the perfect guy to do it; he’s going to do a fantastic job. So congratulations Jimmy.”
