I follow Chelsea Handler. That is, I am a follower of her Twitter account and I often find myself cheered up after a shitty day at the slave-job when I catch odd images that she posts with the most inane captions. (I'm going to include the one she posted with "Even Smurfs need coslopus. Poor girl." For those of you who've read her books like I have, you'll get the reference.)
So consider my prayers answered, if I were the type of person who believed in false idolatry. It was just announced that the comedienne will be the host for the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, set to air this year on September 12th. Shout out to my madre, since that's her birthday and she always hated it when I was young and watched this stupid award show for hours. Then again, I was a young'un around the time that they were still regularly showing just music videos on that channel.
Handler has had her share of professional ups and downs this year, from her latest non-fiction tome, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang, reaching the best seller list for a long run since its release in May to the leaked sex tape which featured her much younger and was cut between home video recordings of her early stand-up. The only thing that disturbs me about her (and I think she loves it when she disturbs people) is her friendship with Jenny McCarthy, but come to think of it... that might have lead to her hosting gig. Fine McCarthy. You win one round.
