Chelsea Handler gets her own imprint and a three-book deal

chelsea-handlerImage Credit: Jason Merritt/WireImage.comGrand Central Publishing has given comedienne and late-night host Chelsea Handler her own imprint, Deadline reports.  It makes sense, considering that Handler has written three books already, all of which have sold like hilarious, readable hotcakes—Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea and her latest Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang both spent weeks numbering in the double-digits on the bestsellers chart. Handler already has a three-book deal for the new imprint, Borderline Amazing / A Chelsea Handler Book, the first of which, titled Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me, is set to release in May 2011.

While Chelsea Lately may not get quite as many eyes as her competitors, being a successful enough writer to garner your own imprint at a major publishing house is no mean feat. I’m sure Chunk is quite proud of his owner.

    I tuned into her show to see what the deal was, and it was horrendous. How is she still on the air?

    • Ben

      Thank you! She’s also aging badly and not funny.

  • Britt

    I like Chelsea, but her last book was pretty bad. I don’t think I laughed once. Ol’ girl’s run out of stories. It’s obvious they’
    re mostly made up, so In guess she’s not creative enough to be a “writer.”

    • al

      I agree. Her most recent book wasn’t good at all.

        I agree. I love her show and her snark, but her books are, fuuuuuhhh, SO unreadable.

  • Trixie

    I don’t understand what an imprint is.

  • Ben

    Wonderful, 3 more books about being a drunk and a slut.

  • Ryan

    I for one am very excited about this. I love Chelsea Handler, and her last three books were all laugh out loud funny. I also happened to see her live last Friday, and she was great.

    I think the girl has peaked. She just seems to be going through the motions of doing her show now with little interest (although her guest stars are bigger names). Her comments have turned from very funny to now mostly nasty. And she has way too many nonfunny ‘comics’ on her panel that she keeps pushing in our faces.
    We used to never miss her shows. Now we tune in maybe once a week. And with Conan on at the same time it will be even less.

    To those who get squeamish when comedians are mean and don’t find it funny, I have a tip for you: Don’t watch comedians. That’s what they do, and I for one find it hilarious.

    Chelsea is amazing, her books are hilarious and I cannot wait for the next three!

  • Janelle

    I love Chelsea! Her books are so good and real. Who cares if the stories are made it, it makes you laugh! I am so excited she is writing more :)
