Late night television host and best-selling author Chelsea Handler can now add Playboy cover girl to her resume. The Chelsea Lately comedienne will appear in the December issue of Playboy Magazine.
The Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea author refused to see her Playboy cover for the first time on Jay Leno’s show Wednesday night when Leno announced he had her Playboy cover shot blown up for the show. Chelsea joked with Leno that she exercised and stopped drinking for “a day and a half” to prepare for the bare-all photo shoot but she wouldn’t reveal whether she actually appears nude on the inside layout after Leno grilled her on details.
The 34 year-old further protested to seeing the her Playboy layout for the first-time on The Jay Leno Show. “Honestly, I don’t. If it’s bad…”
Leno interrupted her and replied, “Nobody cares what you think. You are too used to getting what you want. You need a guy to say no.”
Insulted, the funny woman retorted, “Oh, really! Is that what I need? You are exactly like David Letterman.”
After more protest, Leno grabbed her arm and walked her over to the giant sized cover to reveal the bikini-clad funny woman in a sexy pose looking very svelte.
Chelsea looked happy with the results of her cover shoot but admitted she couldn’t recreate the pose as Leno requested without help. “First of all, we
need the guy who airbrushed me to come back.”
Chelsea Handler’s Playboy issue will be on stands in late November and headlining a show at the Ceasars Palace in Las Vegas November 14.
