late night host then went on to recount an incident at a recent Comcast party where Joan made a speech and took some digs at Chelsea for acquiring a new stage, which was formerly Conan O'Brien's stage.Chelsea Handler has finally confirmed her worst kept secret - she enjoyed a romance with rapper 50 Cent.The 36-year-old opened up about her private life during an interview with Piers Morgan on CNN last night while promoting her new book, Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me.'We dated, very casually,' E!network TV host, who is now dating hotelier Andre Balazs, said. I was sampling, kind of, the atmosphere, seeing what was out there, and I was satiated.'She continued: 'He's a great guy...It felt good to have been seen by someone I had no idea was paying that much attention.
I was selfishly dying to hear what happened to his marriage, what his life was like, and to see if there was any truth to the phrase "Timing is everything." What I discovered is that there is—just not in the way I'd imagined. I felt like I was 23 again—except that our roles were reversed.It's an amorphous cloud of time, and then it suddenly dawns on you that you haven't woken up thinking about him in a while, or wondered if he's laughing as much without you in his life.Realizing that those feelings have set in can be even sadder than the initial misery.At one point, Handler tweeted: 'I don't know why anyone thinks I would ever date a rapper,' while posting a photo of the two in bed.Handler is said to have dumped the rapper late last year and insiders claimed the he sent her gifts to win her back but Handler returned them with a note that said: 'I can buy my own gifts.'When quizzed about those rumours by Morgan, Handler responded: 'I don’t like when men buy me ridiculous gifts and I don’t know them well, I can buy my own gifts.'Handler was in a relationship with Ted Harbert, CEO of Comcast Entertainment, from 2006 to 2010 before dating Animal Planet star, Dave Salmoni in 2010.When the director of my documentary on marriage asked me which of my ex-boyfriends I would like to interview on camera, I told him, "We're going to have to hire an actor." I'm not friends with any of my exes, and I've never understood the appeal.
