Book Club: Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me

I finished Valley of the Dolls last weekend...finally.  Overall a juicy and fun read.  You think you know what is going to happen and then everything changes. I'm a little disappointed in some of the characters.  I thought they would be stronger and stand up for themselves more than they actually did.  I've never felt so much emotion for a character than I did for Anne's toward the end of the book.  It was fun reading a book that took place in the 50's and 60's like this one did.  Just makes you realize how life was for people during these time period's.

I wanted a real good laugh as my next read so I picked up "Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me" which I've had on my bookshelf since this summer.

'My tendency to make up stories and lie compulsively for the sake of my own amusement takes up a good portion of my day and provides me with a peace of mind not easily attainable in this economic climate.' - Chelsea Handler, from Chapter 10 of Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang It's no lie: Chelsea Handler loves to smoke out 'dumbassness,' the condition people suffer from that allows them to fall prey to her brand of complete and utter nonsense. Friends, family, co-workers - they've all been tricked by Chelsea into believing stories of total foolishness and into behaving like total fools. Luckily, they've lived to tell the tales and, for the very first time, write about them.

Once again, I wasn't disappointed.  Even though this isn't written by Chelsea herself, just the morons she surrounds herself with, it's still freaking hilarious.  I can't believe after all the fucking with she does, they still believe things that come out of her loud, Jewish mouth.  It's not only that.  She somehow masterminds anyone around her into being in on her hijinks of whomever has fallen prey.  Not only that, her lies could go on for days, weeks and even month.

Seriously, she hangs around some pretty stupid people.  Funny, but stupid.  This little fact makes Chelsea genius but we already knew that.  I wish I could lie like Chelsea can.  Any joke or lie I've conjured up lasts about an hour but I do love to mess with anyone, especially the non-smart.

This is a definite, must read if you love Chelsea or have a sense of humor (as are all of her other books).  If you dislike vulgarity, you're not going to Chelsea and we probably can't be friends.
