Chelsea Handler -- the irreverent host of the late night talk show Chelsea Lately and author of books like My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang and Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea -- sits down to discuss her latest book with Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow. An absurd and hilarious collection of travel essays, Uganda Be Kidding Me finds Handler detailing her exploits while on safari in Africa, attempting to kayak in the Bahamas and escaping from a German hospital on crutches. Following the conversation with Paltrow (which is sure to be filled with over-the-top tales, questionable travel tips and answers to pressing questions), Handler will be signing copies of her book.
