On September 12, Chelsea Handler descended from the ceiling at the MTV Video Music Awards show wearing a Lady Gaga-inspired house on her head. She screamed, "Release the dove!" and a bird flew out of her pikachu--a Pokemon character, sure, but also one of Handler's nicknames for her vagina. Since the launch of her late-night talk show, Chelsea Lately, on E! in 2007, the raunchy comic's popularity has skyrocketed. Besides trashing celebrities on air, she's written three autobiographical books--the latest is Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang (Grand Central Publishing)--in which she flamboyantly and humorously airs her own dirty laundry, from one-night stands to her love affair with vodka and her discovery of "the feeling" in third grade. She also tells some funny stories at the expense of ex-boyfriend Ted Harbert, CEO of the Comcast Entertainment Group. Chelsea Lately regular Sarah Colonna is on the bill as a "special guest"; fingers crossed for an appearance by Handler's "little nugget" and personal assistant, Chuy Bravo. --Marissa Oberlander
