Handler has been working in the entertainment business for nearly 20 years, and has garnered many tales from her journey to stardom. Her E! Network talk show, Chelsea Lately, however, is what made her a household name. It was there that fans fell in love with her dry humor, and sharp wit.
On top of this, Handler was known for being very candid about her life, entertaining viewers with stories of her wild youth and equally wild adulthood (including the dirty details about her romantic relationship with rapper 50 Cent).

Handler, seeing the love people have for her hilarious antics, has now written six books centered around her life, of which Life Will be the Death of Me is the most recent.
This also isn’t the first time that one of Handler’s book has been adapted for television. Previously, Handler’s memoir Are You There, Vodka? It’s me, Chelsea was made into the show Are You There, Chelsea? The show was a scripted comedy that followed the trials and tribulations of a female bartender in her 20’s, and it ran for one season.
Despite being cancelled so quickly, Are You There Chelsea? featured a star-studded cast and Handler’s iconic brand of no-bs humor. Fans hope this new show will achieve the same effect, while also making up for some of the shortcomings that led to Are you There Chelsea?‘s cancellation.
