Even if you aren’t a huge Chelsea Handler fan, you have to take off your top hat to her ability to go there. Seriously, she’s talking publicly about things other late-night hosts wouldn’t whisper to a priest.Ã‚Â In an interview with the New York Times, Chelsea Handler’s abortion comments are just further evidence that the late-night host could give a tiny sidekick’s ass what people think of her decisions. “I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done,” says Handler. “Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Anyway, those are the things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about.” Is Jimmy Fallon talking about teenage abortions? Don’t think so. Jimmy Kimmel? Very rarely.
Despite her candidness about her own life, Handler practically loses her lunch over some of the choices she sees on reality TV. “We’re seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment,” she explained. “16 and Pregnant. Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.” But don’t worry if Chelsea comments offend you; she’ll inevitably make it around to some taboo subject you’ll involuntarily laugh at. Says Handler, “I try to make fun of everyone as often as possible, especially minorities. I’m a Jewish woman, so …” So someone tell Craig Ferguson to step up his game.
