Chelsea handler dating ted harbert
It's a powerful thing, especially now with what goes on with girls in high school. CH: I was tortured, and probably half of it was deserved, but I was bullied — so much so that there were days when I was like, "I can't go to school today." I was too scared. CH: They'd call me a dog, and bark at me, and say, "You're fat. You're ugly." The girl who used to torture me, the ringleader, showed up backstage at one of my concerts in Newark.
CH: She was such a lovely, supportive, and soft person, very opposite to what I am. She was German, but she wasn't your typical German woman, and she was married to my father, who is Jewish. I would come home from school at 3 in the afternoon, and she'd have a huge bowl of macaroni and cheese, as if that was a proper snack. I know your older brother Chet died at 21 [in a hiking accident, when Chelsea was 9], and that sent your family into a dark place. I wanted to make us laugh and keep up with my older siblings, and help pull us out of that darkness.
CH: Monday through Thursday, I tape four [, then Friday, I do my NBC show, and on Saturdays I'm doing reshoots with Reese [Witherspoon] for the movie. I had two days off recently, and I got on the sofa and I didn't get up for two days, and I felt as if I'd been hit by a truck. So even though it takes nine months to prepare to have a baby, you have that baby in one day. Or one moment you're fine, and the next you're in prison. My mom used to say to me, "Don't ever complain about where you are, because you're the person who got you here." RB: I've read that when you started out in stand-up, you said at first that you tried to downplay your looks to appear more relatable. CH: I never considered myself a supermodel or anything like that. I have good days and bad days, and I like when I'm fit and lean and all of those things that any woman likes, but it's not the eye of the hurricane for me.
Once everything calms down for too long, it's very hard to get moving again. We complain, but we're lucky to have a lot of work. One day it's not in your house, and the next day it is. It's my sense of humor and self-deprecation that define me and invite a lot of people in.
And she certainly doesn't hold back when it comes to celebrities. CH: I have yoga once a week for my staff with Mandy Ingber.
"Paris Hilton is going on a goodwill mission to Rwanda," she once said on the show, in her trademark raspy monotone. "I do this." When the food arrives, she instructs me to hand her my plate.
RB: So your family's always been really supportive? It's funny, one of my girls at work, Eva, puts together scrapbooks for me. He's got a huge smile, and all my friends fell in love with him.
