Roseanne Barr Headed Back To The Small Screen?

Doesn’t everyone wish they had an aunt like Roseanne Barr? Well, apparently, Chelsea Handler does. Chelsea revealed this week that she is in talks with Roseanne to have her join the cast of “Are You There Vodka?,” the NBC sitcom based on Chelsea’s best-selling book which stars “That ’70s Show”‘s Laura Prepon as Chelsea and Chelsea herself as her older, pregnant sister. If Roseanne signs on, she will be playing Chelsea’s crazy aunt. Keep reading »

Chelsea Handler Had An Abortion At 16

“I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done. Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Anyway, those are things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about it … People are too P.C. We need to be focusing on other things. We’re seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment. ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ and some of these other shows are more racist. Or ’16 and Pregnant.’ Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.”

Chelsea Handler reveals to The New York Times that when she was a teenager, she got pregnant and opted to have an abortion. Hmmmm … somehow I’m way more interested in this than the profile writer’s observation that Chelsea has the “pre-silicone lushness of a ’60s Playmate.” We want to hear your story, Chelsea.

Chelsea Handler Looks Like A “Playmate,” Says NY Times

“Below the neck, Ms. Handler is arranged along old-fashioned lines. Writers have described her as a California surfer type, but the truth is closer to the fantasy. In person, without makeup, her body has the pre-silicone lushness of a ’60s Playmate.”

WTF? Regardless of your opinion on the comedienne Chelsea Handler (I love her, mostly), writer Cathy Hornyn’s third paragraph of her profile in Sunday’s New York Times is aggravating as all get out. Yeah, Handler is attractive. But what’s the point of describing her body? Is the author trying to imply it’s helped Handler in her success? (Whether it did or not is debatable.) Even if one does think Handler’s attractiveness is salient to the article, it really pisses me off that Hornyn referred to her subject as “Playmate”-like before even mentioning her successes as an author and TV show host. Would an attractive male comedian’s body be mentioned in the third paragraph of a NYT profile — or at all? [Personally, I thought the entire profile was snide. -- Editor] [NY Times] Keep reading »

Chelsea Handler Is Too Direct For Some Men

“I’m not easy. I’m difficult to be in a relationship with. I’m not that feminine, I’m kind of a little bit too direct for some men, but that’s good because those men don’t like me anyway so they don’t even come near me.”

Chelsea Handler on the burdens — or blessings? — of being a strong woman on the dating scene. I hear ya, Chelsea. It’s hard out there for a girl who calls it like it is. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Chelsea Handler Finally Admits She And 50 Cent Were Dating

“We dated, very casually. He’s a very sweet, nice guy … the complete antithesis of what you’d imagine. I was sampling, kind of, the atmosphere, seeing what was out there, and I was satiated… I don’t really like when men buy me ridiculous gifts, especially when I don’t know them well. I can buy my own gifts. I really don’t like gifts from rappers in general, since I’m not a hooker.”

Chelsea Handler finally comes clean to Piers Morgan that she and 50 Cent did date for a little while. Apparently, Fiddy showered her in expensive gifts and she wasn’t so into that. So she called things off. [People]

Chelsea is now dating hotelier Andre Balazs. See what she has to say about him after the jump. Keep reading »

Chelsea Handler Taking A Trip To The “Mall”

Chelsea Handler can sure write a funny story and deliver a punchline like no other. But can homegirl act? We will get to see very soon. Chelsea has been cast in the movie “Mall,” which sounds like a dark comedy version of “Crash.” It follows five “disaffected suburbanites”—a stoner, a desperate housewife, a businessman, a security guard, and a meth addict with a gun—who cross paths at (you guessed it) a mall. Chelsea will, of course, be playing the housewife. And I cannot wait. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Gwyneth Paltrow Calls Her Grandma A “C**t”

Gwyneth Paltrow apparently didn’t do any knitting with grandma. When she appeared on “Chelsea Lately” this week, she and Chelsea Handler talked about their respective German grandmas. Gwyneth apparently called her mom’s mom “Mutti” and not in a good way. “My grandmother was a real c**t,” she said. “She basically hated my guts. She tried to poison my mother against me, but it didn’t work because I have a great mother. She was just tough, just tough. You look back and you think she must not have been very happy and she must have had a lot of pain because she was mean as hell.” Wow, using the c-word on someone who’s dead? Harsh. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

50 Cent Wouldn’t Jump Over A Table To Bone Chelsea Handler

“Chelsea is confident. I think confidence is the sexiest thing about a person. She’s the kind of person that if you’re blessed with the opportunity to hang out with her, you’ll enjoy it. I’m not sure you’ll look at her and actually want to jump over the table and f**k her, but you might. You would leave after talking with her feeling that she is a cool person.”

50 Cent explains to Vibe magazine what he sees in Chelsea Handler, who he was rumored to be dating back in October. Wait, Fiddy, are you trying to say that you—gasp!—like her personality? If 50 and Chelsea were ever a real couple, it looks like they have both moved on—Chelsea with hotelier Andre Balazs, to be specific. Wonder how he’d feel about jumping over a table for her?

Jennifer Aniston has been hitting the talk show circuit hardcore to promote her new movie, “Just Go With It.” Last night, she sat down with Chelsea Handler on “Chelsea Lately”—and brought along her dog, Norman, a 15-year-old Corgi and terrier mix. Only JenAn would put her dog in a collared shirt and argyle vest to match Chelsea’s co-host, Chuy. How cute. [NY Post] Keep reading »
