Happy birthday to Chelsea Handler! Today, the comedienne and TV personality, who is perhaps best known for her late-night talk show, Chelsea Lately, turns 41. After close to two decades in the spotlight, Handler's tell-it-like-it is attitude and fearless personality as a performer have cemented her spot among Hollywood's finest funny women.
At home, the Uganda Be Kidding Me author often shows her softer side, which is especially apparent if her dogs—Rat, Chunk, and Jax—are present.
