Chelsea Handler: Are You There Vodka? It's Me Chelsea

3 stars for me I listened to this on audio and like my GR friend Kelly stated Chelsea s voice can be a bit much Also did all of these things truly happen Some of them seem a bit over the top and maybe a bit embellished to make a better story I think calling her dad bitch tits is bad It just sounds stupid to me There were ite a few times when I laughed out loud though I am certainly not opposed to reading of her stories I The Grand Sophy used to watch her show on tv and I wonder if any of her girlfriends in the book were some of the comics on the show It never stated if any names were changed I also want to lookp on You Tube the Girls Behaving Badly show and see if I can watch the scenes with Kimmy Chelsea Handler just might be the most obnoxious dumb smart person ever Yet this book was hilarious and I couldn t read it fast enough Sometimes that s all it takes for something to be considered good This sort of book and the positive outpouring for it make me really feel like I must have missed the boat somewhere in the last couple decades of culture or something Maybe it is that I have never seen Handler s stand Winners Dream up and came to this book expecting something a little bit different Perhaps Handler s shtick is that she is merely making a tongue in cheek imitation of the cliche mean girl that we all know from our high school days But without being let in on the charade I found connecting with Handler throughout the book to be basically impossible The humor mostly seems to consist of criticizing everyone in her family her circle of friends and anyone else she meets in her life most typically in a way that fall.

Ick wit is the best line of defenseIn this hilarious deliciously skewed collection Chelsea mines her past for stories about her family relationships and career that are at once singular and ridiculous Whether she's convincing her third grade class that she has been tapped to play Goldie Hawn's daughter in the seuel to Private Benjamin deciding to be eg.
