Nothing translates into too many shots for Sloane, who complains about her severe lack of personal hygiene and upkeep since becoming a single mother. There are some hilarious and uncomfortable family situations. In this hilarious, deliciously skewed collection, Chelsea mines her past for stories about her family, relationships, and career that are at once singular and ridiculous. When I first heard about it, I thought I'd need to go hunt down a copy, but then life intervened.
Handler, instead, brings a sort of crass entitlement to her judgments, too good for even those she is telling her story to. So if those make you uncomfortable, don't read this. I bow down to Chelsea Handler. I've only had one, but I don't want to rule anything out. I wanted to know more about her, but it is so couched in comedy what did I expect, right? Another chapter, involving a hideous birthday party where almost every present has been re-gifted, is also brilliant.
So - how many years later? I was sitting at my desk this morning just laughing out loud and generally annoying my co-workers. Luckily, I found a lot more to like beyond the first chapter, so I can put aside my contrarian impulses and say I found it an enjoyable read. The entertainment world at least. As the words come out of her mouth, Rick leans over and kisses her. When I first heard about it, I thought I'd need to go hunt down a copy, but then life intervened. More than once, I found myself staring at the page, thinking oh, that was a joke, rather than actually laughing.
Nikki, the one who suggested the cleanse, eats in secret, while Dee Dee sticks to the cleanse and is basically starving. Well I'll dye mine purple, and then make it burp the national anthem. And sometimes it just seemed. I think her next book should deal exclusively with her father, because those are the essays that really shine - they're laugh out loud knee slappers that I'll read again and again. She gets out to yell at them for calling her this and they attack her. One that my ears could not unhear but I was still glad she put it in the book.
Now you'll be able to watch and understand any movie or show. But without being let in on the charade, I found connecting with Handler throughout the book to be basically impossible. Admittedly, I don't usually read books like this, but found Are You There, Vodka? Entertainment series, Chelsea Lately airing weeknights at 11:00 p. And it is undeniably funny — in places.
If you have a repressed wild side, you'll dive in headfirst and relish her antics and live vicariously through them. I know you won't care after all, I'm not a little person and if anyone asks what went wrong, I'll have to tell them the truth - I think I prefer tequila. That's the best term I have for her. Ah, I had high hopes for this book. She has a gift for storytelling that will keep you laughing through each unbelievable and sometimes embarrassing real-life journey. First aired: March 28, 2012.
I think her books are being marketed incorrectly- they look so trashy, especially this second one when in fact they don't read trashy. So now you might be wondering how in the eff am I managing to 1 Star something I 4 Starred in the past. I convinced myself I could get past it and the funny would outweigh the fingernails-on-a-chalkboard reaction I have had to her speaking in the past, but it was not meant to be. Chelsea reels Rick into the party-planning committee, requesting he help create a slideshow from old photos. Completely shocked, Chelsea stares in disbelief.
I am still a huge fan of Chelsea Handler as a comedian, but I am not sure if I will ever read any of her other novels in the future. It's Me, Chelsea showcases the candor and irresistible turns of phrase that have made her one of the freshest voices in comedy today. Cutting edge, funny sexy stories. After an unpleasant experience at the restaurant, they duck out to a nearby pub, where they meet what they assume to be a former rock star. It has no theme to tie it together and, as a result, some of the chapters are frustratingly diffuse.
