Chelsea Handler Talks Uganda Adventures in Paper Spring 2014
The hilarious talk show host looked picture perfect in designer duds from Marchesa and Dsquared2 for the Danielle Levitt-shot spread while dishing about everything from her infamous safari expedition to her past careers.
Highlights from Miss Handler's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Paper!
On her African adventure:
"I have never drunk more in my entire life than on that safari, because you are sitting in that car all day long. You can't get out. I have 85 pictures of me peeing. This me peeing off a boat, in Botswana peeing off a jeep, my sister and my cousin pee, Sue [who works with me] pee. It was crazy."
On her other book "Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me":
"It was just as much work as a real book for some reason. I went on tour back-to-back for two years, which meant shooting my show from Monday through Thursday, flying out Thursday, performing, doing a book signing, two shows Friday and book signings after each, then flying to a new city Saturday, two shows and book signings at each - it was the most insane schedule you could imagine. I was happy to do it. But by the end of it, I was like, 'I don't ever want to hear the sound of my own voice again.' Which was unfortunate because I had my television job."
On her life as a waitress:
"I was the biggest b*tch. I didn't understand people who wouldn't look you in the eye and tipped before tax. Do you have any idea the kind of tips I leave? How you make someone feel when they get a $100 tip on a drink?"
On her lifestyle now:
"Life has become so ridiculous because I have access to such nonsense and I can go to these places. I've become so infantilized by having so many assistants - people who take care of you and pack for you and dress you. It just never stops. It's very random nonsense but I'm glad to have it. We stay in places based on how they make a margarita. I call ahead and have my assistant talk to them. I'm seriously on the border of turning into Jennifer Lopez. That's what i think of myself."
On her friends Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston and Charlize Theron:
"People are like, 'Why are you friends with her and her and her?!' I'm like, 'You guys, I have a different person on my show every day. That's how I date, that's how I make friends."
