When Chelsea Handler left E! - which she called "a sad, sad place to live," according to Vulture - she made a new home on Netflix. "I could have gotten paid $10 million a year for the next five years," she said at the Forbes Women's Summit. "I thought, 'This show isn't as smart as me. I want to do a show that's smarter than me.'"
The "smarter" show is actually a four-part "docu-comedy" special during which Handler gets herself into trouble... we mean, topics: "Chelsea Does Racism," "Chelsea Does Silicon Valley," "Chelsea Does Marriage" and "Chelsea Does Ayahuasca" (a psychoactive drink).
Handler finished filming in Alabama for "Chelsea Does Racism," where she told a story of one man who thought the biggest misunderstanding about the south is that people think all slavery is bad. Handler also visited the Twitter offices with her "tatas" out for "Chelsea Does Silicon Valley."
For "Chelsea Does Ayahuasca," the comedienne plans to fly to Peru and drink the hallucinogenic brew with a shaman. She plans to be under medical supervision and says she won't mix her drugs. "I'm not going to be on any other drugs on camera," she said, according to Vulture. Handler said she will, however, try other drugs like sleeping pills, Xanax, or 'shrooms, "just to show what happens in your brain when you're doing these things and how irresponsible some are, and how some are just, you know, real fun."
