Chelsea Handler has never been afraid to say what's on her mind, not even to Piers Morgan.

Handler was recently interviewed on his CNN nightly news program "Piers Morgan Live" to promote her new book, "Uganda Be Kidding Me," when at one point, the two appeared to be clearly over exchanging pleasantries. Video of the interview can be viewed below.

Morgan brought up Handler's Twitter posts, saying, "You tweet very amusingly," to which Handler replied, "I wish you did."

Handler then let Morgan know exactly what she felt about him, saying: "I mean, in the middle of the commercial break, I want your viewers to know, they must know because they're probably following you on Twitter, I mean you can't even pay attention for 60 seconds, you're a terrible interviewer."

"Well, you just weren't keeping my attention," Morgan then said.

Handler fired back, saying, "But that's not my problem, this is your show, you have to pay attention to the guests that you invite on your show."

"If they're interesting enough," Morgan said.

Handler replied, "Listen, it doesn't matter how interesting I am, you signed up for this job."

"Of course it does," Morgan said.

Handler concluded the sparing match with one more zinger, saying, "Well maybe that's why your job is coming to an end."

"Piers Morgan Live" was recently canceled after three years on the air and after Morgan succeeded the time slot once held by Larry King. The show is expected to go off the air later in the month.

This is not the first time the two have traded jabs with each other - the hosts bickered during a taping of Handler's E! late-night show back in January 2013.

Morgan later asked if Handler could have one moment back in her life what it would be, to which Handler said, "It would be spending this hour differently."

Following the interview, Morgan tweeted to Handler about their on-air tiff, saying, "If I'm such a 'terrible interviewer' @chelseahandler - how come everyone's now tweeting & debating our interview ... mwah x." He also shared a photo of a book Handler signed for him, in which Handler calls him a choice phrase. The photo can be viewed here (Warning: photo contains written expletive).
