Chelsea Handler will host the 2010 MTV VMAs! No joke! The comedian, star of E! comedy talk show “Chelsea Lately,” actress, author, Twitterer, one-time “Playboy” model, lover of vodka, T.I., short sidekicks and no-holds-barred honesty will bring her upfront-and-highly-personal humor, quick wit and rapid-fire comedy to the 2010 MTV VMAs, which, are live of course, which means the standards guy assigned to the bleep button may break a finger. (We’re looking at you, Peter Facinelli?)

Chelsea Handler joins the hall of comedic greats who’ve hosted the MTV VMAs, including two-time VMA host Russell Brand, Jimmy Fallon, two-time host Chris Rock, Jack Black, FOUR-time host Arsenio Hall and even Eddie Murphy. Chelsea Handler’s got big VMA hosting shoes to fill, except hers are probably heels and very expensive.

Chelsea Handler will have her hands full on VMA night with live performances by Justin Bieber and B.o.B., Kanye West and Drake, and Florence + The Machine and a cast of VMA presenters that includes Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj, Ashley Greene, Ne-Yo, Trey Songz, Selena Gomez, Emma Stone and Penn Badgley.
