Chelsea Handler loves to joke about men, but we have a feeling true love is what she really wants. After less than a year, the comedienne has split from hotelier and residential developer Andre Balazs. The announcement, confirmed by her rep, may come as a surprise to some.
During the start of her relationship with Balazs, folks remember when she was a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" last May. Chelsea did everything she could to hold back her enthusiasm. It was like she was a different person. "I'm seeing someone now, but, I have spent so much time exposing my personal life to everybody that I finally am in a situation where I feel like it's disrespectful to another person," she said.
Before her love affair with Andre, and after splitting with Dave Salmoni, Handler was suspected of dating 50 Cent. The strongest evidence? It was when the pair posted Twitpics on the same day.
The rapper tweeted a photo of Chelsea giving him a kiss on the cheek. "Why people keep saying I got jungle fever. I ain't never even kissed a white women. Lol."
While the star of "Chelsea Lately" tweeted a photo of her lying on a bed with 50 plopped on top of her. "I don't know why anyone thinks I would ever date a rapper."
It was playful fun, whether real or not, but with Andre, Handler seemed to be serious. She even hobnobbed in the Hamptons. "This is my first time in the Hamptons," said the funny lady. "I don't think I'll surf, I think I'll just swim and wave at people."
Perhaps Chelsea was just another flavor, because Balazs' girlfriends have including everything from actress Uma Thurman to socialite Katherine Keating to singer Courtney Love.
