Chelsea Handler was admitted to the hospital due to stress.

While on the road with her ‘Vaccinated and Horny’ tour across the United States, the 47-year-old comedienne opened up about suffering from heart disease cardiomyopathy and was informed by a doctor that “stress” was the core cause of the problem.

She said:” It’s basically like you bruised your heart in an instant moment of too much adrenaline. I asked my doctor was instant or if it had been slowly building and he says, ‘Well, it’s an instance, but you’ve basically been very stressed for a long period of time and you probably did not recognize that.’ I was like ‘Oh s***!'”

Doctor advised Chelsea Handler to re-evaluate her health

The ‘Chelsea Does’ star went on to say that her doctor advised her to re-evaluate her health and reminded her that her whole act is about not taking herself “too seriously.” She is currently dating former co-star Jo Koy.

She told E! News: “[He said to me] ‘Isn’t your whole schtick that you don’t take yourself too seriously?’ and I thought, ‘God, you’re right. What am I doing here? I’m stressed out so much that I landed in the hospital?!”

Chelsea, on the other hand, assured supporters that everything is “fine” now, but joked that she will now “practise what [she] preaches.”

She added: “”I mean I’m fine now. Everything’s healed and I’m all set. But I was like, ‘Oh, good advice: Practice what you preach.'”

Chelsea recently revealed that while she was formerly “uninterested” in performing, she is now willing to share personal experiences again since performing live provides a “high.”

She said: “I like to share my personal stories and turn them into material. Live performing, it’s such a high. This tour has been a really nice reminder of what got me into this business in the first place. There was a period of time where it wasn’t interesting to me. I felt like I didn’t have anything meaningful to say, and now I feel like this is back to who I am.

“And a lot of that is from Jo Koy, too. Being with him and being reminded of where we started out, it has been like, ‘Oh, yeah, this is what I’m really meant to be doing.’”
