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 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.”

    She should take time off because she sucks. She is not funny and the least pro woman than any other celeb I know. She is using this cause to TRG and save her image which has suffered because of her nastiness.

    If a woman NEEDS Chelsea’s help to get elected, then she probably has no business being in office. Strong, deserving women will find their way without her.

    Well there’s a good reason to elect someone. Their sex! 🙄

    “We need more left-wing women in politics” … There, I fixed it for you.

    She couldn’t give a rat’s ass about any women outside her own narrow political box.

  • Penny Dreadful

    That’s exactly why she’s taking time off. Politics is just a convenient excuse to cover for the fact that she can’t get work because no one likes her and her brand of angry “humor” is not interesting. Especially not now.

    i do see your point, but i think the reason for the push is to have equal representation. if you have a woman, you have someone who knows what it’s like to be a woman and stand up for women’s rights and opinions more-so than a man would. if you have a ton of men, you get stuff like them deciding what happens to women’s bodies and stuff. they do need to be qualified too, though, yes.
