Radar Online is reporting that the sale of Chelsea Handler’s ‘sex tape’ has been halted due to lack of interest.
Individuals in possession of Handler’s sex tape have supposedly just given up, partially due to a difficult business partner within the deal, and partially because the video just wasn’t fetching the kind of dough they were after. The salesmen were looking for a 6-figure payout for the footage.
Unsurprisingly, the tape was one that the attention-seeking Handler shot herself and submitted to comedy clubs along with her standup routine. Though she’s not shy about the tape, Handler has not signed off on its sale, adding another legal dimension that possibly contributed to the ending of the deal.
“Thanks for ruining my surprise Christmas gift to my staff…it was made as a joke,” Handler said in response to the tape on her evening talk show, Chelsea Lately.”I put it on an audition tape for a comedy club, because I’m a comedienne, and I’ve been showing it at birthday parties for f**king years!”
We can see how that may be a power play in a gender-skewed career like comedy, but it still disappoints us that Handler flashed her T and A to get some stage time. Female comics shouldn’t have to use their vajayjays to get exposure! Thank god we have classy funny ladies like Tina Fey to counteract the skankitude.
