Sorry Chuy … Chelsea Handler Has a New Love Nugget!

Published by PETA.

As a dedicated Chelsea Lately fan, I was thrilled last night when Chelsea Handler opened her show with the announcement that she had adopted a mutt she has named Chunk from an animal shelter.


Have you adopted a mutt Lately? Why yes, yes I have.


Chelsea has joined the growing list of celebrities who are showing the world that the era of the “purse pup” is so over—compassion is the new trend. Chunk is definitely one lucky pup to join the Handler brood, because Chelsea is obviously as kind as she is hilarious.

Now, with a faithful new companion by her side, I’ve got to ask the question that’s on everyone’s mind—what’s going to happen to Chuy?!
