Chelsea Handler Gets NBC Pilot
Chelsea Handler, queen of the late night, will get a primetime chance with a NBC pilot “Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea.”
Handler won’t be starring in the show, but serves as a muse. The show is based on Handler’s life in her twenties, and shares the title of her autobiography.
With multicamera shooting, the comedy will follow the lives of a group of twentysomethings who are living and working together, being led by free-spoken young woman.
The leading character will not be sharing Chelsea’s profession; however, the show will draw from Handler’s other memoirs including: “My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands” and “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang.”
Handler will serve as one of the show’s executive producers is also producing and starring in “After Lately,” which follows the behind-the-scenes action at E!’s “Chelsea Lately.”
Additionally, Handler is starring in McG’s “This Means War,” opposite Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy.
Although busy, Handler has had time to make headlines with rumors of romance with rapper 50 Cent. Following her hosting gig at the VMA’s, reports emerged that the two were getting close and according to MTV, were even spotted sharing an intimate time together in a New Orleans night club. Both parties deny any relationship, other than professional, and the current gossip on the situation says the independent Handler broke his heart.
Handler addressed the speculations with a tweet, explaining the two were only working on a film project:
"Everyone, calm down. I met with Mr. Cent about a potential project. There's nothing to report yet, I'll let you know if there is."
Then this week, as Yidio reported, the TV host was seen "making out in the corner" with hotelier Andre Balazs while in Park City for the Sundance Film Festival.
Busy gal that Handler. Busy gal.
