Chelsea Handler: Sex Tape or Raunchy Audition Tape?
By PopEater Staff Posted Apr 29th 2010 06:39AM
Chelsea Handler has surfaced, RadarOnline.com reports, and despite what seems to be a very X-rated video, Handler claims it's nothing more than a "joke" that she used to submit to comedy clubs as an audition tape. She even used her show as a platform to discuss the tape. Video after the jump!
The video begins with Handler's stand up routine, but cuts to a more intimate setting (and graphic act) between her and a British man. After a sex scene, the video then cuts back to Chelsea's joke-telling. But a rep for the comedienne says it was all a stunt to get her noticed.
"The tape you have is an old tape that was done for a stand up comedy bit," Stephen Huvane told Radar.
During her show on Wednesday night, Handler addressed the tape (and RadarOnline) directly. She said: "I would like to say to RadarOnline.com, thanks for ruining my surprise Christmas gift to my staff, and number two, it was made as a joke. I put it on an audition tape for a comedy club, because I'm a comedienne, and I've been showing it at birthday parties for [expletive] years!"
A Radar source says, "Chelsea gave this demo tape to a bunch of talent agents and managers hoping to book some gigs. It was taken so long ago and distributed on old VHS tapes, that I'm sure most people just threw them out because her stand-up was so bad and they didn't realize she would make it big one day. It's highly possible that many of the recipients of the tape didn't even watch past the first couple of minutes and missed the sex tape part altogether."
Celebrity Sex Tapes
When she first moved to Hollywood, Chelsea Handler made a tape that featured her standup routine and a few more intimate acts. The old video shows Chelsea telling jokes, then cuts to a bedroom scene where she has sex with a British man. Her rep claims it was an old demo tape she made as a joke.
