I always imagined that when you get famous enough, eligible singles just show up at your door with gifts and active listening skills and you pick the one you like the most. But I guess I was wrong, because apparently Chelsea Handler—comedian, talk show host and all-around famous person—is struggling in the dating game. Welcome to the club, Chels.
“I don’t get asked out," she told People in a new interview. "No one is knocking at my door." (To be fair, they probably would if they knew where her door was.) She continued: "People try to set me up, but the guys that want to date me, I’m not that interested in. And guys I want to date, don’t seem that interested in me.”
RELATABLE. Also relatable: Handler admitted "it's time" to get a boyfriend, but lamented a lack of prospects in Los Angeles. “L.A. is weird,” she said. “Everyone is gay or married. I’ve got to wait for a bunch of people to get divorced, I guess.”
The 41-year-old comedian has dated rapper 50 Cent and rich hotel guy Andre Balazs , but that doesn't mean you have to be super rich or famous to date her. “I don’t have any parameters about who I date," she said. "I’m open."
There is one requirement: her future bae “will have to be confident and secure and put me in my place.” Good luck, men!
“Of course I want to be in love. I want a boyfriend," she admitted, but added that she's doing just fine. "So many of my dreams have come true [already]. So I’m cool with anything else this lifetime. Because I really hit the jackpot.”
As I write this, Chelsea Handler is probably drinking vodka and getting her feet massaged by some hot young stud with a man bun. So yeah, she'll be okay. Not so sure about the rest of us.
