Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me

Its a collection of stories that illustrate how irredeemably F*%$ed up in the head the whole group is. And not in a funny way- in a very sad co-dependent abusive unpleasant way.
I used to think she was a talented businesswoman a...more
The book starts out well enough (despite the obvious cop-out of not actually hav...more
Aside from the actual readings, I didn't really enjoy the book. It was like listening to Punk'd but without Ashton Kutcher. Just couldn't get in...more
Some of her pranks had me laughing hysterically out loud, but most of the time, they just made me feel bad for the people involved. An example is when Amy, her stylist, recounts how Chelsea crassly harasses hotel employees and strangers. Then later, casually mentions a time Chelsea peed on her. I really don't see what's that funny about that. It just makes her seem like a grown-up bully, walking around te...more
Take Jeff Dunham, for example. I adore the DVD's -- and he's even more spectacularly hilarious in person. I left his show all hyped up and ready to read his book -- and -- well -- it just wasn't that funny to me.
Granted, it was an autobiography, and as such it is certainly less inclined to be blatantly humorous as the real life ventriloquist show, right?
Even so, some of...more
This book is written by the people who fill Handler's day, not by Handler herself--which, of course-- y...more

The stories I enjoyed most were from her family. Chelsea is the youngest of 6, and by age 2 she was lobbing insults and generally...more

My first introduction to Chelsea Handler was on a flight to Maui. I had downloaded her audio book My Horizontal Life onto my MP3 player. It was THE most en...more
"Yippee Kiyay, Mr. Falcon!"
… at first it was ok and moderately amusing … then it was just something I needed to get through. I mean, it was totally ok, and parts of it are pretty funny. She is mean, though -- or her friends are really stupid, especially the one who changed his honeymoon based on some prank she pulled..... and some of those women seem like airheads. All of the readers are pretty annoying except her siblings – their voices aren’t as...more
"My tendency to make up stories and lie compulsively for the sake of my own amusement takes up a good portion of my day and provides me with a peace of mind not easily attainable in this economic climate."--Chelsea Handler, from Chapter 10 of Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang
It's no lie: Chelsea Handler loves to smoke out "dumbassness," the condition people suffer from that allows them to fall prey to her brand of complete and utter nonsense. Friends, family, co-workers--they've a
We get it. Chelsea Handler acts like a 7 year old boy with boobs. She likes to play pranks (some of which are painfully stupid - yet people fall for them), but she only messes...more
THINGS I'VE LEARNED FROM LIES CHELSEA HANDLER TOLD ME;
1. She's super, super, super smart and funny. She reminds me...more
This book is written by friends and colleagues of Chelsea, and it is basically their stories of her pranks and lies to them. You see, Chelsea loves to lie and she loves to pull pranks, and the two go hand in hand. I can see why she loves to lie, she is fabulous at it! As e...more
Definitely not as good as the ones Chelsea writes herself. Instead, each chapter was written by a friend or associate who at some time or another has been pranked by Chelsea. It wasn't a laugh out loud book for me but I was impressed by the sheer number of pranks that she plays and the lengths that she will go to for the pranks. Some of them are downright mean (albeit humorous)....more
