Funny gal and New York Times best-selling author Chelsea Handler phoned in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” Tueday to talk her latest book Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me and comedy tour, as well as revealed even she gets embarrassed at times!

As for the incentive behind her fourth book, Chelsea admits, “I was trying to figure out how to put out another book without writing anything. So I was like, ‘okay everyone can do a chapter;’ and I realize, people can’t really write so…I really had to help them out.”

Although the tales are told from Chelsea’s closets peeps, she did do more than just proofread. Chelsea explains, “I just wrote something at the end of each person’s chapter.”

As for how she technically held the ability to fully edit any of the tales, she admits, “I could, but you know, I’m very honest to a fault. I lie but about stupid things for my amusement — I’m never trying to make myself look good…I like to humiliate other people and I have no problem being humiliated.”

However, one thing that does get to Chelsea is dancing. The comedian confesses although, “I don’t get embarrassed easily,…I do get embarrassed. I get embarrassed when I have to dance — I’m a bad, bad dancer.”
