A recording of Chelsea Handler when she was 23 years old has surfaced, and Radar Online insists that it is a sex tape. At first glance it appears to be Handler practicing her standup routine at home, but it quickly explodes into a sex tape featuring Chelsea Handler and a male sporting a British accent. In what seems like a flash, the recording easily cuts back to the standup routine. In response to Radar’s claim of the sex tape Handler cleared the air on her E! Network celebrity news talk show “Chelsea Lately” when she announced that she had made the tape for a comedy club audition when she first moved to Los Angeles and was in need of a loan. ”I would like to say to Radar Online: A) thanks for ruin! ing my surprise Christmas gift to my staff, and number two, it was made as a joke,” Handler said to her loyal “Chelsea Lately” viewers. “I put it on an audition tape for a comedy club because I’m a comedian.”
Chelsea Handler’s comedy is built around sex
In her standup routines and self-penned books like “My Horizontal Life,” “Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea” and “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang,” Chelsea Handler has spoken at length about her sexual experiences and other Vodka-fueled ventures as a gregarious single woman. The stories are quite humorous and definitely not for family consumption. It is not a stretch to assume that the so-called Chelsea Handler sex tape was simply a laugh-and-shock means to an end: getting a job.
What’s with the editing and who’s that Brit?
Blogs the caliber of The Hollywood Gossip doubt that Chelsea Handler is telling the full truth about whether the sex was actually part of an audition. Chelsea says that’s ridiculous. It’s a wonder that the gossip rags have not made the connection between the British man in the video and also the British boyfriend Handler writes about in her books. The books indicate Chelsea Handler once cared for the Briton, but he wounded her by cheating. Now that “Chelsea Handler” is one of the biggest brand names in comedy, could it be that the former British boyfriend was looking for a payoff or wanted to knock her down a peg?
If he has returned, then “British Bob” has bitten off a lot more than he can chew. Handler revealed on her program that “someone” once tried to get her to pay $ 1,000,000 to keep the tape from hitting the tabloids. Handler’s retort to the extortion attempt was self-effacement: “No thanks. I am not worth it,” she said, smiling.
