Chelsea Handler always tries to beat you to the punchline, but when the topic of teen pregnancy came up in her NY Times interview (in regards to 16 and Pregnant and shows like that), Chelsea spilled that she has an abortion as a teen! No one probably expected that!

“People are too P.C.,” she said. “We need to be focusing on other things. We’re seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment. ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ and some of these other shows are more racist. Or ‘16 and Pregnant.’ Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.”

She continued: “I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done. Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Anyway, those are things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about it.”

Although not as original as Roseanne, Ms. Handler is at least her equal in calling out the stuff that bugs her, whether it’s class bigotry or the creepiness of the word “panties.” Yet, despite her appeal across several platforms — movies; a new NBC sitcom based on her book “Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea”; her E! spinoff, “After Lately” — she is not a media darling like Tina Fey. “I don’t know if I’m going to be what people call mainstream, ever,” she said. “My personality is just too obnoxious.”

Chelsea is currently promoting her book, ‘Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me.’
