Houston true: Chelsea Handler hit town drunk (in spirit) and offensive
Chelsea Handler, host of Chelsea Lately on the E! network, came to town to indulge Houstonians in some stand-up and sign copies of her latest best-selling book, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bangover the weekend.
Being die-hard Chelsea fans, my friends and secured great seats months in advance to catch our favorite comedienne dole out inappropriatisms. We were not disappointed; she launched right in with a bit about how Asian Americans (whom she often picks on) rarely attend her shows, and when they do, they're loners. We gleefully pointed out our friend Katherine, who is Korean and was, as predicted, the only Asian-American in our entourage.
Handler thanked her for coming, and said she was sorry Katherine wouldn't be able to see her very well.
When not expounding on the material featured in her books (her "ridiculous" father, the year she discovered masturbation and her recent ex-boyfriend, Comcast CEO Ted Harbert) Handler spontaneously called out audience members on everything from tardiness to being cougars to being too drunk.
When one girl had to be helped out by security, Handler stopped mid-sentence to point her out: "See that girl? That's the girl who's going to shit on the carpet later."
She might have been right. Tell us: Did any of you see Chelsea Handler? What did you think?
