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.
