Five Things You Didn’t Know about Chelsea Handler

amfAR Inspiration Gala Los Angeles - Arrivals

You have to admire the way Chelsea Handler handled her career. She got famous for being one of the few female comedians who were really willing to get risque’ and honest. She pushed that fame further by touring relentlessly. She then furthered that fame by writing (best selling) books. Finally, she moved into TV with her own show, and film. Though she is leaving her show, she is already moving on to another one she will be hosting. Safe to say the best of us know this is only the beginning for this outspoken woman. Here are five things you didn’t know about Chelsea Handler.

Youngest of Six Kids

Listen, being the baby in a family full of kids means you really need to go that extra mile to have your voice heard . It was amid these other siblings where Chelsea found that humor made people turn their head and listen to her. How else do you expect to be heard in a house filled with other kids who have been around longer? I am the youngest in my family and I had to do the same thing.

Very Generous

Rumor is that for her talk show staff, she set up scholarship funds for each and every one of them who had children. Keep in mind, this is with knowing that she didn’t even go to college herself. Basically, she figures she has some wealth and a way that she can help some people around her who help her, so why not. It is a great attitude to have and we wish more celebrities thought that way.

Not Looking For Husband

Though it seems many people in life go forth with the idea that they want to get married and have a family as they get older. The opposite seems to be true for Chelsea Handler. She told the New Yorker during an interview that she doesn’t know if she wants to get married at some point. Judging by her humor and how racy it can get at times, she seems to be enjoying the single life quite a bit. Speaking of her single life….

She Was Once Thought To Be Seeing 50 Cent

Things get a little weird here, because for a awhile, the two were seen together. Chelsea would talk about them like they were dating and engaging in the kinds of activities people who date engage in (wink, nod). On the other hand, 50 Cent was asked the same thing as insisted over and over that the two were just friends. He also made some comments about her being “too old for him” in the press. Truth is, they were seeing each other for a while. She is telling the truth.

She Competed in One Beauty Pageant

While we are not here to tell you about any happy endings where she walks away with the grand prize, we can tell you that she may have only entered it for laughs. She recalled the story on The Tonight Show and said how she knew when it came to the talent part of the competition, she would be out of luck. Why didn’t she just tell some jokes? She woulda killed ’em.
