5 Reasons we love Chelsea Handler

It's no secret that superstar comedienne Chelsea Handler is coming to Ireland.

So it's time to revisit five hilarious reasons why we love the Chelsea Lately host.

1. Chuy

Oh, you're not familiar with her relationship with the 'nugget' she unofficially adopted in her early days as a late night host? Chuy Bravo is technically her assistant, but more or less he gets paid to be a very good sport.

2. My Horizontal Life/Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang etc.

“I'm not that shallow, a**hole. I don't need money. It's way more important for them to be good-looking.”


3. The fact that she really doesn't give a s**t

"I think we can all agree that sleeping around is a great way to meet people."


"Ugly babies I don’t talk about on-air, but I will in private. And people dying of cancer. That’s not funny. I try to make fun of everything, though.”


4. Her description of her Dad, Melvin

"He tells me he can’t go to the market any more, that people are coming up and approaching him, and I’m like, ‘Well, how are you introducing yourself? Nobody cares about you.’”

She says he tried to charge her $25k for the rights to mention him in one of her books.

“I said, ‘All the rights are mine because you’re my father and it happened and my brothers and sisters will corroborate the story,’ and he said, ‘Well, I could sue you if you publish something about my private life without my permission.’ I said, ‘Well, fine, then sue me, because you’d have to borrow money from me to sue me and I’m not going to give you that.’”


5. Getting Lindsay Lohan to host her show post rehab (the most recent one)

Bearing in mind, she repeatedly tore Lindsay to hysterical shreds at every given opportunity over the years.
