"I think the thing that hits me the most is: I didn't think about, you know, how strong I came across for so long. I just thought there's all these other sides of me that everybody must automatically know about...But there was only one side of me I was showing on like say, Chelsea Lately, my old old TV show, and I realize how one dimensional that was...So it's nice to take into account how I come across and to be softer and to shut up and not to insert myself every time there's an opportunity. So for me, I need to always dial it down...I've made a career out of dialing it up...So I would like to get real, you know, instead of that bluster...I want to get real and have conversations like this, and yeah, I feel good about it."-Chelsea Handler Chelsea Handler is one funny lady. That’s a fact. But these days, she’s more than just a comedian. Chelsea is also someone who’s spent the past year getting super honest and super real about her role on this planet and what it really means to live a meaningful life. Chelsea documents her year of self-discovery in her new book Life Will Be the Death of Me: . . . and You Too! We recently met up for a fun and thought-provoking conversation about her life these days and how she’s worked to make changes to who she is and how she lives her life.
