Saucy comedian and vodka aficionado Chelsea Handler is no longer denying the rumors, reports The Huffington Post. On Piers Morgan tonight, the host of the E! Network talk show “Chelsea Lately” admitted that she “casually” dated rapper 50 Cent. While the media has feigned surprise, Handler fans are likely not surprised by this, as she has gone on at great length about how much she loves black men.
‘He’s a very sweet, nice guy’
Chelsea Handler told Morgan that she tried 50 Cent out and is now satisfied.
“I was sampling, kind of, the atmosphere, seeing what was out there, and I was satiated,” she said.
It’s been a “cat and mouse game” between Handler, the rapper and the media for months. For every denial, there were multiple rumors. Talk of clandestine meetings mushroomed into a memorable Twitpic of Handler literally in bed with 50 Cent, but fully clothed. Handler captioned the photo with:
“I don’t know why anyone thinks I would ever date a rapper.”
For his part, 50 Cent was complimentary of Handler, if not on fire over her:
“Chelsea is confident. I think confidence is the sexiest thing about a person. … I’m not sure you’ll look at her and actually want to jump over the table and #$%* her, but you might. You would leave after talking with her feeling that she is a cool person.”
A cool person who may be in line to take over late night
Business Insider poses a very reasonable scenario through which Chelsea Handler could become the next host of the “Tonight Show,” should NBC decide to say goodnight to Jay Leno’s older demographic. Handler is currently developing a pilot for NBC based upon her second book, “Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea,” and Leno’s ratings continue to hang around the bottom of the late-night network mix.
If they’re feeling frisky, NBC could shoot Handler into the legendary “Tonight Show” host seat, but even if they play it safe and Jimmy Fallon moves up from his “Late Night” spot, Handler could fill his shoes and grab a primo spot in line for the throne. If Leno sticks around, NBC could send Carson Daly packing and handler could re-do his 1:30 a.m. time slot. It may take some extra cash, as Business Insider suggests, but it would be a worthwhile investment, considering Chelsea Handler’s growing fame.
In the meantime, there are the ‘Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me’
Handler is embarking upon a new book tour, as “Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me” hits shelves Thursday, May 12. The fourth book in the Handler oeuvre, her latest effort is “a look at some of the not-so-truthful tales” she has created to embarrass friends and family throughout the years, writes Vox Magazine. Each chapter is actually written by one of Handler’s victims, however, which no doubt left her with more time for Grey Goose vodka and 50 Cent albums.
