Late night TV show host and comic Chelsea Handler is the latest celeb to share the couch with Oprah on the upcoming episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter.” We appreciate Handler for her brash humor and unapologetic demeanor, however a full hour of candid conversation? Not sure we’re sold… just yet anyways!
We most know Handler for her public “relationship” with rapper 50 cent and sarcastic love for black men. And that is exactly the types of discussion we DO NOT want to hear when she and Oprah bombard our living rooms this Sunday night. Nothing about her beef with Nick Cannon over Mariah Carey either!
Oprah’s latest series of chapters–Beyonce, Usher, Lance Armstrong— lacked the the intensity with which Oprah used to confront her interviews. Handler actually has an interesting story. her mother Sylvia, a Mormon homemaker and father Melvin, a Jewish car salesman, were “caring but flaky,” reports Biography. At the age of 10, she lost her oldest brother to a hiking accident. “He literally fell like 80 feet off a cliff,” she revealed in an interview on The Rosie Show. “I was shut down because I didn’t want to cry in front of anyone. I had seen my parents cry I was embarrassed.” she continued.
Those are the things we want Oprah to draw out of the 38-year-old Livingston native!
