PEOPLE reports the unfortunate news that Chelsea Handler is getting a chance to shine. “Wisecracking author and E! talk-show host Chelsea Handler has been tapped to liven up the MTV Video Music Awards as host of the Sept. 12 show.
“‘The censors have been put on high alert,’ MTV.com says, as the ‘sardonic and sass-tacular’ comedian becomes just the second woman to host the VMAs solo, following Roseanne Barr in 1994.”
As Danie Tosh recently noted: “Stand up comedy isn’t easy. If it was, Chelsea Handler would do it.”
