Chelsea Handler Gets Misty-Eyed Over Uncovered Family Ties To Nazi Germany! See The Sad Vid HERE!

Chelsea Handler nazi ancestory cries tlc who do you think you are

Oh noes!!! This is just the saddest thing ever!

When Chelsea Handler agreed to be on TLC's Who Do You Think You Are — a show dedicated to exploring celebrity genealogy — we doubt she had any idea they would uncover this!

As it turns out, one of the Chelsea Lately host's maternal grandparents served in the Second World War as a soldier — for Germany. Yes, indeed, it seems her grandfather served under the Nazi regime, being taken as a "prisoner of war at some point to America," and later fleeing the country with his family after the war was over.

Yikes! We can't imagine how upset she must've felt after uncovering that dark of a spot in her family's history, though she admits to the cameras while reading her grandmother's memoir that she didn't really know if her grandfather agreed with Hitler or not.

The poor gurl! A tough family secret to hear.

Ch-ch-check out an excerpt from the emotional episode for yourself…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Aww! Now our eyes are watering, too!

    Maybe you should watch the show before you pull info from it for a story. He wasn't a card carrying Nazi.

    oh dear lollllllll what was she expecting royalty.. look at her personality



  4. 4

    In what universe was that her crying her eyes out? Am I the only one who thought the amount of tears shed was over exaggerated

    Re: suzieq1993 – I was thinking the same, I didn't even notice her cry tbh.

    She cried a little over the memoir written by her grandmother about being poor and hungry as a child lol maybe you should watch the episode before posting

    She is the most annoying woman. I agree, her personality sucks and anyone that finds her amusing probably lacks personality too!

    Why cry about it? Its not like it has an impact on her life. Its the past. If I were to cry about my ancestors I would whine about The Trail of Tears, the Volga germans, the starving, its history. Its not something we went through or did. Does that mean in a few generations my decendents would sit and cry because I had my butt beat by my ex? That I suffered from poverty?

    you should probably watch the episode before reporting misleading information.

    Re: Reds – I agree.

    Another is a long series of misleading headlines. Her grandfather was a German SOLDIER who was captured, not some Nazi propagandist! The sad thing was he was brain washed into thinking the Americans would do to him what the Nazi's were doing to the Jews and others in their infamous camps! I am so getting to the point of avoiding your videos because of these dreadful lead in's that misrepresent the content of the clip. Maybe I am a fool for still coming here and you could care less if I complain but seriously… you're a liar, still a bully, and I am so sorry for your child. With a monstrous father like you the kid has no chance.

    Re: GO iron ur balls 777 – She's Jewish, douche.

    You obviously didn't watch. Her grandfather just served in the army, he was not a card holding Nazi.

    Re: Reds – This. Why do people think she is funny?

  15. Cris says – reply to this

    Are you kidding? Germans had no choice but to go to war, there was no choice. There is nothing to be ashamed of! I would be more ashamed to American than German!

  16. Getyourfactsstraight says – reply to this

    Get your history straight! Most Germans didn't know Hitler was half as bad as he was, including foot soldiers in the war, besides they were subject to orpaganda like the rest of the planet ,even more so. Soldiers like it or not fight in blind faith of its countries leaders, look at the war with Irag, you know the country that had nothing to do with 911? Get the facts straight too Perez, you are twisting alot of stories lately and im getting tired of reading half truth and lies.

    Re: Cris – I agree! What about fighting Bushs' War For Oil? We are still killing innocent people in the Middle East right now! Yet unlike back then we have more knowledge of what is going on!

    Dude … just because he served Germany in the war doesn't mean the guy was a Nazi - that's what so many people get wrong about Germany. Hitler SEEMED good at first, and solved a LOT of Germany's problems, that's why they voted him in. They obviously didn't expect him to turn dictator and allow the SS to threaten even the locals. Most of them were faced with joining up, or being harrassed by the SS (and there was a lot of pressure from ALL countries for young men to fight). If anything, the guy was probably a brave, brave man.

    Re: shana – Agreed. The guy thinks he has the right to diss everyone but gets offended if the same comes his way. Honestly, I feel sorry for his kid because he got the child as though he were a pet. Probably thought it was a fad to have children so got his little junior.

    Re: Getyourfactsstraight – You hit it right on the head! I couldn't have said it better! Cheers to you and shame on you Perez for the skewed and VERY misleading title! GIMME A BREAK!!!! Why treat your readers like they are morons? Do you care so little about your fans???

  21. Cris says – reply to this

    Re: Stoplying – Absolutely! In the end of the war Hitler sent children to fight!! Nobody would get away. If you didn´t fight the Nazis killed you anyway. Nowadays soldiers do have choices and too much americans choose war!

    Yeah because her family was the ONLY one affected by all of that. Give me a fucking break u waste of space

    Did you watch the episode? He wasn't a Nazi. He was a part of the German Army, NOT the SS.

    Re: GO iron ur balls 777 – You're an idiot.



  25. 25

    Perez, your research and preparation sucks. Don't you ever do prep. for writing things?

    Re: Kathy444 – Why are you even reading this site if all you're going to do is bitch about it? Maybe you should go to a Chris Brown concert and bitch about domestic violence as well.

    Saddest thing ever?? You clearly dont read the newspaper. You really are a slimeball.



  28. 28

    this is a better article. i dont like her and thought she's a douche to jolie. plus jennifer then went and robbed a man from a girlfriend. but she's JEWISH AND GERMAN ironically enough. "no man picks his father" after all….. -Eragon



  29. 29

    chelsea is so racist. She is against latin, indian, asian, black and all the people isn't white and caucasian race. She is jewish but she have a nazi soul. Im sure she is acting in the video and secretly is proud for her nazi granpa.

    Re: Sammy – Well said. I am not normally offended by things Perez says but this article rubs me the wrong way. Most people with German ancestry have ties to Nazi Germany.
