This rumor shouldn’t be all that surprising given who we’re talking about but for tact’s sake I hope it’s not true. Apparently Chelsea Handler, known as the E! host of “Chelsea Lately” and “After Lately;” better known as the rapper obsessed “comedienne” who was all too happy to be sleeping with 50 Cent, is writing yet another book. Titled 50 Shades of Chartreuse: This Time It’s Personal, the book is supposed to be a parody of the hit erotic novel 50 Shades of Grey. Anyone who has read this book knows it might as well be called “50 Shades of Sex,” and if Chelsea is recreating it on her own acquired comedic taste way, it’s safe to assume there will be lots of sex. And with the readily available play on 50 Cent’s moniker, I’m sure she won’t resist includng details of their time between the sheets.
In a press release for the book, Chelsea commented, ”This sounds to me like one big wiki leak,” and the personal life section of her Wikipedia page definitely has the makings of an interesting book.
“In 2006, Handler began dating Ted Harbert, who oversaw E! Entertainment Television as the former CEO of Comcast Entertainment Group. On January 25, 2010, Handler confirmed, via her late-night talk show, that she had broken up with Harbert. On the July 19, 2010 episode of her show, Handler confirmed she was dating animal trainer and television producer Dave Salmoni. However, on September 2, 2010, when asked by guest Melanie Brown if she was single, Handler stated that she was. Later that year, she began dating rapper 50 Cent for a couple months.
“In 2010, a sex tape of Chelsea Handler was reportedly being offered for sale. This tape was a copy of Handler’s audition tape from the 1990′s. Handler has stated she added the sex scenes to her audition tape to appear as if she had accidentally taped over her homemade sex tape, and has been showing the tape at parties “for years.” On the April 18, 2011 episode of Chelsea Lately, Handler announced to the audience that she was dating again, and at the end of the show revealed a photo of herself and Andre Balazs at a table. However, when interviewed on E! News and Piers Morgan Tonight on May 10, 2011, she declined to confirm that she and Balazs were together and stated that she was respecting her current boyfriend’s privacy because he had children. Then, on the November 9, 2011 episode of her show, Handler revealed that she had broken up with Balazs. In the May 2012 issue of More, Handler revealed that she and Balazs were back together but it was reported a few months later that the couple had called it off once again. “
So, sleeping with your boss boyfriend to get a show, dating a rapper with ex-girlfriend drama, a sex tape, and an on again-off again relationship. Sounds like a book opportunity to me — if you’re the kiss and tell type, which she clearly is. When Chelsea broke up with 50 Cent she was quick to relay the details of how they got together, and even more proud of calling him the “worst thing you could say to a black person short of calling him the N-word” when they broke up. The book won’t hit shelves until next October so I guess 50 and his manhood have some time to prep before the big reveal, although I’m not sure the public really wants to get all up in this odd couple’s bedroom booming like that.
