Picks and Pans Review: A Chat with Chelsea Handler

The E! comedian's book of no-holds-barred personal essays is a bestseller. But what does her family think?

HAVE YOU HAD FEEDBACK? My sister said, "I'm as much fun as a cold sore? Is that necessary to say?" I had to remind her that she is as much fun as a cold sore.

HAVE YOUR KIDS READ IT? I don't have kids. Well, I've adopted two, one in Guatemala and one in Zimbabwe. I call them both Earl. They're just gonna stay there. If it's a success, maybe I'll have some of my own. But I wouldn't put money on it.

DO YOUR PARENTS LIKE THE BOOK? The day I found out it was on the New York Times bestseller list, I called my dad and he's hysterically crying. Then my boyfriend called, and he was crying. Making two grown men cry at the same exact timeā€”if that's not a new high for me, I don't know what is.
