Chelsea Lately star Chelsea Handler may be freaking funny, but she’s also just plain real.
In an interview with the New York Times, Chelsea revealed, “I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done. Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Anyway, those are things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about it.”
She resents MTV’s 16 and Pregnant, calling it “grossness” and “mindless”, saying, “Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.”
What do you think of Chelsea? Do you think it’s brave that she talked about abortion? Does 16 and Pregnant reward pregnant teens? Discuss!
