While Laura Prepon is playing a character based on Chelsea Handler and her life in Are You There, Chelsea? the comedienne chose to portray her older sister Sloane - and now, her real life sibling, whose real name is Simone, is getting the star treatment because of it!

Chelsea explains:

"My sister is living in hog heaven right now. The vacations she gets to go on, and she has like a million followers on Facebook. She says, 'I'm a celebrity!' I tell her 'You aren't anything. It's all me.' What I loved was playing against type, so I cast myself as my sister. [NBC Entertainment chairman] Bob [Greenblatt] wanted me to look sharply different, so I wore a brunette wig. Oh my god. That wig. It has its own sitcom coming out in the fall."

It's like all the benefits with none of the work!

We can't say we blame her!

She gave you all of that material to work with for the sitcom version! Ha!
