"Joy" is her middle name but "Fun" ought to be her first name! Chelsea Joy Handler is a real fun-job when she does her role as a stand-up comedienne. She is also an actress, TV host and author who has done well in all these fields. She hosts the show,Chelsea Lately, on E! Winner of the 2009 Bravo A-List award, she owns columns in NOW (UK celebrity magazine) and Cosmopolitan. Starting with an unknown role on Spy TV in 2001, Chelsea has had an admirable growth till her Fun Size in 2012. Her television and film commitments number more than 20 in 12 years. Her first book on her one-night stands which hit the stands in 2005 was a runaway success and she has followed that up with three more, equally interesting books. She is currently working on her fifth book. She is also a regular columnist in popular magazines. The stand-up comedian, actress and authoress surely knows how to live life king size, er... queen-size if we may say so. Her home in Bel Air, Los Angeles is astronomically huge with 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. This walled and gated residence has been estimated to cost about $5.9 million! She drives in style, just as she lives, in a Bentley Continental GT. Holidaying in exotic places like Chateau Marmont seems to be her zest in life! A regular at Hollywood, Ms.Handler is patron of many super-brands, Chloe, Chanel, Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and Vena Cava to name a few. She has strong views on a few subjects and she backs those views with charities. For instance, she promised to match every donation towards marriage equality for a period of 24 hours. She played her part to raise $81 million for Stand Up To Cancer and has actively supported another such charity, AbolishCancer. Born as the youngest among six kids, Chelsea had bold acting aspirations unlike her conservative siblings, from a tender age itself. However, since the competition was intense in the show business, Ms.Handler decided to use laughter as a best medicine for her situation. Grabbing the stand-up spot on The Melrose with both hands, she became a 'serious' stand-up comedienne with performances all through the country. That success got her some early jobs on TV (The Plotters, The Practice, My Wife and Kids) and a good exposure on The Bernie Mac Show. In the meanwhile, she also authored her first book, My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands which really hit the stands hard and rose to be a bestseller in New York Times list. And then came the chance to be lead on her own show, The Chelsea Handler Show on E!. She rocked there and continues to rock as of 2012. She has also conjured up three more bestsellers. In 2012, TIME placed her on its list of 100 most influential people. In relationships, she had a roller coaster ride before breaking up with Andre Balazs.
