For those who watch Chelsea's show some of these stories won't be new because she shares her life with the audience a tiny bit, they are still however funny, especially when narrated by Chelsea's semi sarcastic way of expressing herself which I find refreshing because I don't need to see another phony chick on TV and she's the opposite of that.

Chelsea is such a funny girl, I never knew what was going to happen in each chapter, and in this book her life is displayed through random chapters but following a time line, some deal with her siblings, her father, jokes she played on Ted, her book writing and of course trouble. The first chapter was a bit of a shocker haha, I didn't expect to learn about her intro into herself but I command her for the bravery while giving me a chuckle. My favorite bit was when Chelsea was at home in bed watching TV and eating lean pockets, watching movie after movie on the same channel, I've done that kind of stuff before ( minus being a naked mess and eating lean pockets) so it was refreshing to read about her doing the same, normal stuff, somehow that chapter shone some new light on Chelsea, making her vulnerable somewhat, perhaps her lack of expertise with electronic equipment made her more endearing. This was a fast and fun read, nice time filler for fans of Chelsea and all that goes in her head. I specially loved the last chapter on her dog Chunk, whom she rescued from a shelter that does kill animals who aren't adopted fast enough, he went from being a doggy convict to a cover model, I loved that, Chelsea has humor but also a big heart.

This book is a random collection of silly stories and situations that Chelsea gets herself into.  If you've read her first two books and/or watch her late night comedy show Chelsea Lately on E!, you know her style and attitude, which comes through in all her books. This book wasn't as funny as the first two, but it had visual aids and still laugh out loud stories.  She writes like she talks/thinks, which gives the stories a raw humorous spin.  There is nothing she won't …

I am not someone who regularly watches Chelsea Lately. I have also never read "Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea". Therefore I am actually surprised that I even decided to read this book. However, it was in our Patient Library at the hospital that I work for so I thought it may at least be an interesting read. First, I should state, that I am really in no way close to being a prude - at all. But, the first chapter (spoiler alert) basically opens with an eight-year-old …

Based on the reviews, I must be in the minority, which is fine. For me, 'Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang' was just okay. It was not as good as 'Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea', the only other book I've read by Chelsea Handler. I enjoy her comedy and sense of humor; her personality, jokes and all but what struck me about 'Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang' was that a lot of her usual humor and personality is strangely absent from a good portion of the book. The first half of the book doesn't feel or seem …

About this book


Starred Review. Comedienne, talk show host and daring author Handler (Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea) indulges her fans with a new compilation of shockingly direct essays, from which she emerges as a scheming farceur with an expansive range of practical jokes and winning sarcasm, pulled off beautifully against (and with help from) her closest friends and family (including her boyfriend, the CEO of the E! television network that employs her). Handler spins a deliriously sticky web of running jokes while suckering the gullible, again and again, with made-up stories of her transgendered friend, a ludicrous movie deal, and her infamous personal pilot. Never shy, Handler finds room for even more irreverent honesty regarding sex-including her earliest encounters with male genitalia and with "the feeling"-and also lets readers in on her family life, including a family dinner that ends with her missing brother found intoxicated, naked, and celebrating on a dock in the early morning hours. Whether Handler is plotting to get her father committed or convincing her dog never to "shadoobie" in her presence, her essays are packed with enough laugh-out-loud moments to rival a first-rate stand-up act.
