After proving that she could hold her own among the men of television comedy, Chelsea Handler moved her attention from her widely popular show Chelsea Lately to comedic writing. Two of her books, Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea and Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang, hit No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list, and in 2010, the funnywoman was given her own publishing imprint, Borderline Amazing/A Chelsea Handler Book, on which her newest work, Lies Chelsea Handler Told Me, will be released in May.
