Chelsea Handler sure has an interesting definition of "sex tape." And "humor."
On Wednesday night, reports surfaced regarding a decade-old Chelsea Handler sex tape featuring the talk show host getting down, dirty and X-rated.
In the tape, the future Chelsea Lately hostess does a typical stand-up routine before taking off all of her clothes and engaging in explicit sexual acts.
In short, she has sex. On tape. Pretty straightforward. But her rep insists: "It isn't a sex tape. It's a tape that was done for a stand up comedy bit."
We don't know how in the heck that passes for comedy ... then again, that applies to Chelsea in general a lot of the time, so we suppose we'll buy it.
MAN HANDLER: Chelsea got down and dirty on her non-sex tape.
On her show Wednesday night, Handler herself addressed the alleged sex video, and didn't deny it exists or dispute reports of its explicit content.
Instead, she quipped, "Thanks for ruining my surprise Christmas gift to my staff."
"It was a joke. I put it on an audition tape for a comedy club because I'm a comedian. I've been showing it at birthday parties for f***ing years!"
We suppose we believe her, but that's just ... strange. Almost as weird as the Chuy Bravo sex tape. Both of which we're ready to move past.
Handler also claims that she received a a $1 million offer to market the tape, and responded: "And you know what I said? I'm not worth it."
Well, there you have it. You gotta give Chels props for being honest and self-deprecating ... even if her idea of humor is a little unusual.
