Chelsea Handler: ‘Don’t Feel Sorry For Me… I Love Being SINGLE!’

Published on February 16, 2016

CHELSEA HANDLER isn’t rushing to settle down with her perfect man, adding she’ll “find someone when I’m ready to find them”.


The 40-year-old comedian and actress has dated stars including television CEO Ted Harbert and rapper 50 Cent but is currently single. However, she doesn’t want anyone to feel sorry for her, insisting she is thoroughly enjoying the single life.

“When you turn 40, people start to feel sad for you,” Chelsea said during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Monday night (15Feb16). “I mean no one’s celebrating the fact that I’m single and celebrating my life. Hashtag great time.”

Chelsea isn’t even really exploring the dating circuit, preferring to enjoy “sleeping around” rather than being wined and dined. Calling herself a “fun girl”, Chelsea added she’s in no rush to find her soulmate.

“I’ll find someone when I’m ready to find them,” she insisted.

Being turned off of dating could have something to do with a recent disastrous evening out Chelsea shared with a London man. She told James that her date couldn’t stop talking about the Burning Man Festival – an annual gathering that takes place at Black Rock City.

“This guy kept talking about it and I was just so bored,” she laughed.

After calling an end to the night at around 11.30pm, Chelsea’s date still kept pursuing her and sent her a message once she was home.

“He texts me and he texts me ‘you did good’ like I’m the one auditioning!” she told the audience.

Chelsea decided to put an end to her highly successful E! talk show Chelsea Lately in 2014 after airing on the network since 2007.


She has been back on air thanks to the four-part Netflix docuseries Chelsea Does, and will be hosting a new talk show for the streaming service this May (16).

“It’s not going to be the same thing every night,” she told Entertainment Weekly earlier this year of the chat show. “It’s going to be on three times a week, and I’m going to implement a lot of the stuff from the docuseries because that turned out really well. There will be a studio portion too, but I want to keep the format loose so it’s fun and different every night.”
