Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang by Chelsea Handler

This is another collection of short vignettes from the life of E!’s Chelsea Handler as told by the comedienne herself. If you love her somewhat crass, self-deprecating (and everyone else-deprecating) humor, then this book will certainly be up your alley. I admit, I don’t watch Chelsea Lately. It’s on too late at night, because I am prematurely old for my age, and the few times I did watch, some of the people on her panel annoyed me. But I loved “My Horizonal Life” and I think in general, Chelsea is the type of gal I could be pals with, except maybe too slutty. Sorry Chels!

My favorite anecdote in CCBB is where she tricked her significant other (who also happens to the CEO of E! – talk about sleeping with your boss!) into believing that she killed a friends’ dog at a party. Even going so far as to stage a doggy memorial service for the dog, who was very much alive. I imagine that having a practical joker like Chelsea in your life would make you skeptical of every word she said, but somehow she gets him over and over again. Also a favorite of mine was her retelling of taking her limo driver, also known as Chocolate Chunk, to Turks and Caicos for a getaway, and the intoxicated ladies she tried to hook him up with.
