Chelsea Handler is the funniest woman on the planet, hands down. I’ve been a fan of hers for years, and I am convinced we are supposed to be best friends. I honestly don’t think I would get sick of her at all. Think about it. She loves vodka, a lot. Just like me. She has a knack for saying really inappropriate things. Just like me. She has a love for little people. Just like me. It’s perfect.
Her books My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands & Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea are insanely funny and I read both of them in less than a day’s time. She is raw and abrasive, and has had me in tears more times than I can count. It’s all so natural for her too. I really appreciate the fact she doesn’t try to be funny; she just is.
Her late night talk show Chelsea Lately is, in my opinion, the best show on television. It’s really too bad the assholes at E! aren’t airing re-runs regularly anymore. You know you’ve struck gold when you can watch a show that features guests like Margaret Cho as part of a round table discussion and talk about how stupid most people are. Just today, I re-watched the episode featuring Cho (thanks to YouTube!) and nearly peed a ring around myself. The panel was discussing Sarah Palin and how kind-of-attractive they thought she was. Cho chimed in and explained she was fired from the Obama campaign for making the statement
I would eat her moose-burger, from behind… Eskimo style
How could you not appreciate and love a show like this? I do understand why people don’t like her, or think she is obnoxious. I get it, but I don’t agree with it. Clearly those people are idiots.
