Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang

I just finished reading Chelsea Handler’s third book, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang, and boy was it hilarious. I literally laughed out loud during several parts. The first chapter was a little too crude and uncomfortable for my taste, but it only got better from there. My favorite chapter was the one where Chelsea played a prank (one of many mentioned throughout the book) on her boyfriend, Ted. It wasn’t just any prank though, it was a very elaborate prank with which she got several people to go along. Poor, gullible Ted. Weird that he thought he could trust what Chelsea told him considering she was his girlfriend, right?
Anyway, it was an quick, enjoyable read, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a laugh…well anyone with a light sense of humor that can handle pretty vulgar material. The book is centered around low blows at her father, siblings, and boyfriend, and of course stories involving alcohol and other drug substances. There weren’t any stories about one-night stands though, which was the majority of the material used for her first book, My Horizontal Life, and that was a little surprising. I don’t think she could get away with writing about one-night stands in the newest book considering she had a boyfriend when it was being written. Funny thing is that, as much as Ted is mentioned throughout the book, I think he and Chelsea have broken up since the book has been published. Oh well, that feisty blond will be on to the next one in no time.
