Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me

I have previously established that I love to laugh.  I am also a huge Chelsea Handler fan.  I watch Chelsea Lately on a pretty regular basis, and I have read almost all of her books.  When I saw her newest release, Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me, on audible.com, I downloaded it as quickly as I could.  (I am still waiting for Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang to become available on audio...you hear that audible.com?)

This book, unlike her previous three, was not penned by Chelsea herself.  Instead she had her nearest and dearest family and friends each write a chapter, recounting anecdotes of their times with her.  As it turns out, Chelsea is a liar.  Not the malicious kind.  The kind that likes to pull a good practical joke on those she holds dear, and she has a real take no prisoners attitude when she does it.  Plus, she is fabulous at it.  And it is all hilarious.


This book made me wish that Chelsea was a friend of mine.  Her antics get crazy (and dirty), yet somehow she still manages to weave intricate lies, convincing those around her that the insane is true.   She knows how to push people's buttons, and those that are the closest to her are the ones that get it the worst. At the same time, she is described by everyone as a loyal and generous friend, who would do anything for her loved ones.  It is easy to see why her shenanigans are tolerated

Overall, I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars.  Some of the chapters were better written than others, but they were all entertaining.  Some just made me laugh harder than others (but please understand, they all made me laugh).  Next up, Something Borrowed.  I am already about a quarter of the way through, and it is some juicy stuff.

She sounds a real character. I have only heard of her in relation to the States so don't really know much about her xoxo

Heh. I love it. That woman does things I wish I could do.

I love Chelsea Handler's books! I read the first 3 and laughed hysterically through them! (which turns into a little bit of an awkward situation when you're on an airplane laughing out loud!). I can't wait to read this new one!

How are you enjoying Something Borrowed? It is one of my favorite books and I've since read the rest of her books, which are all amazing! Enjoy the rest of it!

I've never watched her show, but she does seem like a rambunctious TV star xD

Sorry, but I don't know her. I'll watch for her. I like funny women.

Sounds like a great read. Women are funny - hilarious in fact. They just haven't been allowed to be for so long. Rock on Chelsea.

Chelsea is a hoot! I got the pleasure of seeing her live last year, and I was in stitches the whole time! I haven't read any of her boots, so I will have to pick them up at some point!

I read My Horizontal Life a while ago and hope to read Are You There Vodka? soon- she's hilarious!

I hope you have Something Blue to read after you finish Something Borrowed. I thought Blue was better.

Haven't read a book since the beginning of the year.
However I love CHelsey! This woman has balls. Seriously she cracks me up although some of her comments make me wonder how she sleeps at night!
