Chelsea Handler knew exactly how to cheer Instagram up this weekend. The 45-year-old comedian, actress, and TV host took to the platform from her home amid the coronavirus pandemic – like every other celebrity around, the blonde is social distancing amid COVID-19.
Filmed poolside and delivering what might be the world’s most unusual workout, The “Chelsea Does” star threw out her trademark humor, her fit body, plus a little insight into what she’s reading to pass the time at home. Clearly, the star was also keeping herself zen with what was likely a joint.
Chelsea’s Sunday photo showed her impressively working her core on a pink and orange towel laid by an outdoor pool backing onto greenery. The star had both legs lifted up, also seen clutching her thighs as she wore black leggings, plus a pale, long-sleeved top.
This photo wasn’t about the wardrobe, though. Chelsea had the book she was reading held up with her toes, with unusual accessories also adding to the image – a lighter and bottle of oat milk were seen next to her.
Chelsea also appeared to be indulging in some recreational marijuana.

Chelsea had taken to her caption with a shout-out to trainer Ben Bruno, also mentioning the literature featured.
“Thanks to @benbrunotraining, I can get some core strengthening in while I read and practice #socialdistancing. For those of you who are curious, the book is “The Nazi Officer’s Wife: How One Jewish Woman Survived the Holocaust” by Edith Hahn Beer. Discomfort was today’s challenge,” she wrote.
Likes came in fast, with the post clocking over 9,100 of them in under 30 minutes. Today’s humor seemed to be continuation of the star’s recent birthday video – skiing with no pants proved immensely popular amid the star’s 3.8 million followers.
Comments picked up on just about everything. Chelsea was told that the workout was beyond brilliant, although a fair few users immediately noticed one detail in the video.
“Joint in hand. Haha this is amazing and inspirational on so many levels,” one fan wrote.
“The smoke effect is epic,” another wrote, with a third adding:
“That joint tho.”
Meanwhile, many users shared their own experiences while in quarantine.
“???? Anything to entertain ourselves! Today I challenged myself by attempting to hold my breath the entire time I emptied my bladder??♀️??♀️ I won!! ??,” one fan wrote.
Chelsea’s post came hours after she called out U.S. President Donald Trump over his response to COVID-19. Yesterday proved America’s darkest hour as the country’s death toll doubled in one day to over 2,000.
“Within a week of its first confirmed case, South Korea’s disease control agency had summoned 20 private companies to the medical equivalent of a war-planning summit and told them to develop a test for the virus at lightning speed. Not in our country. Our president fumbled,” Chelsea tweeted.
