Funny people who have fallen in love! While Chelsea Handler had known her future husband, Jo Koy, for nearly two decades, their romance was perfectly timed.
When Koy was a frequent guest on Chelsea Lately, Handler admitted that she had feelings for him but “suppressed” them when the show ran on E! from 2007 to 2014.
Then again, who gives a hoot? Is there any Vodka in this establishment?? This is me, Chelsea,” says the book’s author. Since our first meeting, we’ve come a long way. Because of those feelings, it’s possible that I would have blown it up sooner.”
During their time on Chelsea Lately, Koy and the host got into a lot of fights. The stand-up comic now believes that she couldn’t express her feelings because she was too shy to do so.
Handler made the following statement on the red carpet of the People’s Choice Awards in December 2021: “Now that I think about it, that was my attempt at flirting… “I think I was so disconnected from my own feelings that they became my currency.”
In their words of hers, “He keeps telling me that this whole time I was in love, but I didn’t know it,” I’m just going to believe her.
The author of Mixed Plate: Chronicles of an All-American Combo, a native New Jerseyan, also believes that her success is due to her decision to put herself first in everything she did.
At the end of the year in 2021, she said, “I had to really dig deep and get my stuff sorted out.” It was as if I suddenly had a new perspective on him. “Wait a minute—my that’s the guy,” I thought to myself as soon as I saw him.
“The One” is out there because of the author of My Horizontal Life, Koy, and she wants her readers to believe it too.
“Do not change or shrink to fit in with the crowd if you are still looking for your soul mate. “Be patient and never settle for anything less than you deserve,” the Girls Behaving Badly alum wrote on Instagram in November 2021. “Your person” has been standing right in front of you the entire time you’ve been here.
Handler has been dating hotelier André Balazs since 2010, after dating Ted Harbert for four years. The two had broken up two years later.
