When we first met Chelsea Handler, she was dating the president of E! (didn’t know that? How else do you think she got her show?) Things ended between them and she was single for a minute, and then rumors of her dating rapper 50 Cent started popping up. That was unexpected, but kind of made some odd sense. Now the reports coming out of Sundance are saying that Chelsea was seen all over New York hotel and restaurant guru Andre Balazs.
Andre and Chelsea were seen making out at a Florence and the Machine show, as well as a couple of other parties. The two are reportedly heading back to Los Angeles together today.
Eh, I’m on Team 50. This Andre dude seems real sophisticated and baller-like, but Chelsea seems a little too wild for him. I felt like 50 could give her the loving that she needs while not giving a fuck what she says on her TV show or in the press. That seems like the ideal man for a lady like her.
Nicki Minaj is a respectful and respectable young woman, but don’t mess with her.
Last night the rapper appeared on Chelsea Lately to plug her new album, “Pink Friday,” and while explaining how she teamed up with Eminem to do “Roman’s Revenge,” Chelsea rudely interrupted Nicki to say, “You’re going all Puerto Rican on my ass all of a sudden.”
Now, I don’t even know what that means. I don’t know if that comment was about Nicki’s accent or the names she was dropping or what. To me, the comment came off as racist because it was baseless and unrelated to anything that was going on. Apparently Nicki thought the remark was off-color as well because she responded by saying, “Chelsea! Sit your ass down!”
Chelsea laughed and the audience laughed, too. But they also did one of those murmur-y “Oooooh, shit!” things that audiences tend to do when someone starts sassing the host/is coming too correct for TV.
