Chelsea Handler got even more candid than usual in a raunchy new interview, during which she admitted to going on a date with Bobby Flay, said she feels bad for Kanye West and shared how she got drunk in a theater with Florence Henderson two months before the Brady Bunch star died.
When confronted with a list of men she’s rumored to have dated during an interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, the comedian shared how she wound up on a date with Flay, who divorced his third wife, actress Stephanie March, last year.
“I did not date Bobby Flay; I went on a date with Bobby Flay, one time,” said the 41-year-old Netflix star, who was then told she had been “short-changed” because the celebrity chef didn’t cook for her. “Did I? Is he that great of a chef that he didn’t have to cook for me? F*ck you, Bobby Flay!”
In between discussing sex positions and stroking one of her interviewers with a bottle of Grey Goose vodka, Handler also denied dating actor/comedian David Alan Grier, but spilled on her two-month relationship with rapper 50 Cent.
“I liked him,” she said. “He was really sweet. He just came after me and wouldn’t let up, so I was like, ‘Alright, fine.’ And then I was like, ‘Now go away.’”
As for her relationship with former NBC boss Ted Harbert – which took place while she had a show on one of his networks – Handler said she believes people discredited her talent because she was being romanced by her boss.
“If I see Kim, I’ll say, ‘Hi,’ but I’m just not into that whole scene -- the selfies,” she explained. “I feel like it’s gross and I feel like it’s not a good message to girls. But if [West] is ill, I do feel badly for him. But that would also explain his behavior for a long time. I think that family is a tough family to [be in].”
When the radio announcers pointed out that Handler herself has posted half-naked photos on social media, she was quick to defend herself. “But I’m being silly,” she said. “I’m not trying to be sexy. I’m trying to be stupid."
Handler also shared her final memory of The Brady Bunch icon Florence Henderson, who died on Nov. 24.
The pair hung out an awards show two months ago, during which Henderson suggested they have a drink.
“I was like, ‘They don’t have alcohol here,’ and she said, ‘But if you ask them, they’ll bring it to you.’ So I did, and they brought me a bottle and then she drank with me the whole night. We got sh*tfaced together. She was like, 83 and totally with it, cool and funny!”
