It’s starting to look like more than a fling between comedienne Chelsea Handler and famously handsome hotelier Andre Balazs. The pair was first spotted together (and by "together," we mean "publicly making out") at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Then we didn’t hear much about them… until now!
In the past two weeks, Balazs, 54, has escorted Handler, 36, to two high-profile events: first the White House Correspondents Dinner in Washington, D.C., on April 30, and then the launch party for Handler’s new book, Lies that Chelsea Handler Told me, in New York City on may 9. So are Handler and Balazs in it for the long run?
Handler’s friends seem to think so. Chelsea lately writer Heather McDonald tells E! News that Handler has "met her match" in the Hungarian-American businessman.
"He doesn’t put up with (her), but in a fun way, which she loves," McDonald explains. "Chelsea likes when you don’t put up with her too much."
Balazs certainly seems to have a way with beautiful, successful women, seeing as he dated Uma Thurman for three years and the rumor mill has also linked him to Renee Zellweger.
Balazs may have been Handler’s very special guest, but he was far from the only famous face at her book party. others who joined Handler to celebrate the new book — which is a chronicle of Handler’s best practical jokes on her family and friends — included Katie Couric, Lucy Liu, Josh Hartnett, Michelle Tractenberg and designer Vera Wang.
