Overheard: Chelsea Handler wants to focus on off-camera work, gain weight

Chelsea Handler spends a great deal of time in front of the camera, what with her E! talk show, “Chelsea Lately,” her spin-off, “After Lately," and NBC’s short-lived “Are You There, Chelsea?” – which she also wrote and produced.

And then there’s Handler’s foray into film, which continues with the teenage Halloween adventure “Fun Size,” opening in theaters on Friday.

But at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on Thursday, the comedian told CNN she’d like to focus on another aspect of the biz.

“The sooner I can get other people’s shows on the air, the sooner I can not be on camera and then I can gain the 20 pounds that I should probably have on my body.”

Handler also talked about “Chelsea Lately” moving from the small Santa Monica studio, which the show’s called home since its 2007 debut, to the larger Stage 1 at Universal Studios.

“You know it’s been amazing,” She said. “And driving on to Universal Studios and having a parking spot in the front where they are like, ‘Ms. Handler you park here.’ I’m like how the hell did this happen?”

    I liked Chelsea until I learned about her cat juggling. Yeah, that's right, she juggles cats.

    while not my favorite, she is making big bucks not being "lady like" as some of you say, I'd say many of you are Coulter fans, long as she doesn't curse the message can be as hate filled and malicious as can be, wow I'd rather hear someone curse, she knows it's all for show. Smart lady

    Cursing is bad. No one likes spotty mouth.

      No, but we're sure enjoying your coining of a new phrase. "Spotty mouth." Sounds like it could be a strange form of hoof and mouth, or maybe Tourette's. I believe, for future reference, that you probably meant "potty mouth" which refers to use of scatological language.

    It's impolite to use foul language. Maybe she was raised in a barn.

      If she were raised in a barn, wouldn't that make it "fowl" language? ha ha ha – I crack me up!

    ISN'T ATTRACTIVE?!?! The hell she ain't. She is a good time, and thats a good time. She seems to have bad taste in men IMHO.

    I've heard that using curse words is a sign of insecurity. By saing the word it helps the user to feel bigger or more powerful than they actually feel.

      You shouldn't believe everything you hear....check out George Carlin's "The Seven Words You Can't Say on Television."
