Chelsea Handler Is Taking Time Off to Help Get Women Elected

Chelsea Handler sits down for an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday (January 26) in New York City.

The former talk show host opened up about why she’s taking a year off from work right now.

“I’m taking the year to myself. I want to help get women elected. I want to do important stuff,” Chelsea said. “You guys have to go to EmilysList.org and look up the candidates that are running because these are incredible progressive women and we need more women in politics, so I’m really passionate about that.”

When asked if she would ever run for office, Chelsea jokingly said “no, I can’t get by on that salary. Of course not.” She then added, “I’m not informed enough in that regard to run for office. I would never.”
