Tonight, Chelsea Handler addressed rumors that she's dating rapper 50 Cent, but she did so with a wink and a grin. Then, in a surprising move, "50" himself showed up on 'Chelsea Lately' (weeknights, 11PM ET on E!).
Handler mentioned her hypothetical relationship with a "certain rapper with a number in his name." Chelsea joked that her show's staff was also obsessed with the gossip -- to the point where they started a book club to learn more about 50 Cent.
Staff comic Heather McDonald led the club, having the group read 50's own autobiography, 'From Pieces to Weight.' Then, Mr. Curtis James Jackson III (a.k.a., "Mr. Cent") walked through the door.
As the rapper reached into his jeans, Heather threw her purse and screamed "Get down!" ... Oh, Heather! 50 Cent wasn't pulling out a gun. He was reaching for a copy of the book, so that he could join the club too.
In fact, 50 proved to be a perfect gentlemen. He even let comedian Sarah Colonna perch on his lap as they flipped through his book. What a nice young man. He should find himself a nice young woman someday -- unless he already has.
