Before funny lady Chelsea Handler was a household name she was a struggling comedienne just trying to get the attention of talent agents in Hollywood. To get that attention Chelsea really put herself out there, getting naked in a spoof sex tape in her audition video.
Maybe E! talk show queen Chelsea Handler didn’t think she would ever make it big and wasn’t worried about her X-rated audition tape getting into the wrong hands. People do crazy things when they’re trying to get famous, right?
But now, the tape is out there and Chelsea had to address it on her show Wednesday night.
“I would like to say to RadarOnline.com, thanks for ruining my surprise Christmas gift to my staff, and number two, it was made as a joke,” Chelsea said on her show, Chelsea Lately. “I put it on an audition tape for a comedy club, because I’m a comedienne, and I’ve been showing it at birthday parties for f****** years!”
During the first part of the tape, Chelsea is fully clothed and performing her stand-up routine. Then the tape suddenly cuts into an explicit tape of Chelsea and a male partner engaged in a sex act. The tape then immediately cuts back into Chelsea continuing her stand-up routine in her apartment.
Chelsea continued to laugh about the tape, explaining to her audience that someone actually tried to pay her for the rights to the tape, offering her $1 million.
“You know what I said, I’m not worth it,” Chelsea laughed.
