Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler
4 Stars - Read January 11, 2013
A collection of short stories from Chelsea Handler about her family, love life and career (many of which are booze-inspired - per the title).
I was practically kicking and screaming while checking this book out from the library. I despise Chelsea Handler. I can't stand the sound of her voice and looking at her makes me want to punch her in the face. I can't think of one other famous person who makes me react this way. Why the F would I want to read her book? Well, because I'm a sucker for peer pressure. Everyone else was reading it and said it was hilarious. I have to admit, they were right. It was funny. Like heaven help me I've had two kids and sometimes the giggles might result in me pissing myself funny. I tried to watch her show again after reading this and I still wanted to jump through the set and rip her face off. I even tried a viewing of "After Lately" rationalizing my addiction to reality television would overpower my hatred. Wrong. I'll just stick to the books (secret confession - when I read I picture Elizabeth Banks telling me the story instead of Chelsea Handler).
