Chelsea Handler always tries to beat you to the punchline, but when theÂ topic of teen pregnancy came up in her NY Times interview (in regards to 16 and Pregnant and shows likeÂ that), Chelsea spilled that she has an abortion as a teen! No one probably expected that!
â€œPeople are too P.C.,â€ she said. â€œWe need to be focusing on other things. Weâ€™re seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment. â€˜The Real Housewives of Atlantaâ€™ and some of these other shows are more racist. Or â€˜16 and Pregnant.â€™ Getting rewarded for being pregnant when youâ€™re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.â€
She continued: â€œI had an abortion when I was 16. Because thatâ€™s what I should have done. Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Anyway, those are things that people shouldnâ€™t be dishonest about it.â€
Although not as original as Roseanne, Ms. Handler is at least her equal in calling out the stuff that bugs her, whether itâ€™s class bigotry or the creepiness of the word â€œpanties.â€ Yet, despite her appeal across several platforms â€” movies; a new NBC sitcom based on her book â€œAre You There, Vodka? Itâ€™s Me, Chelseaâ€; her E! spinoff, â€œAfter Latelyâ€ â€” she is not a media darling like Tina Fey. â€œI donâ€™t know if Iâ€™m going to be what people call mainstream, ever,â€ she said. â€œMy personality is just too obnoxious.â€
Chelsea is currently promoting her book, ‘Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me.’
