Chelsea Handler Powers Another Memorable Profile Piece

The qualities that shine through on the air for Chelsea Handler are also the stuff magazine editors’ dreams are made of. She tells it like it is, takes no (non-nugget) prisoners, and remains a breath of New Jersey fresh air.

In this week’s Hollywood Reporter magazine cover story, Handler hints that in the spirit of her role models Gertrude Stein and Fran Lebowitz, she is hoping to de-emphasize the celebrity gossip quotient of her broadcast day-to-day ASAP. “I want to deliver news that isn’t just surrounded by Charlie Sheen,” she tells reporter Leslie Bruce. Handler seems like she will always have the courage of her convictions:

“I have really strong opinions; I’ll never sell out,” Handler says. “I’m not going to wake up one day and have a perfume. That’s never going to happen.” She adds, “It would smell like rubbing alcohol.”

Ha, ha. There are also candid comments in the article about Joan Rivers, Graydon Carter, and her feelings about being offered the opportunity to book a last-minute Ellen cancellation. You go, girl.
