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!!!

Gwyneth Discovers Her Ancestor Was A "Master Of Kabbalah!"

Holy shiz! This is pretty crazy!

On the series, Who Do You Think You Are?, celebrities have the opportunity to look into their family's history and learn about their previously unknown ancestors, which is exactly what Gwyneth Paltrow was doing when she uncovered that her great-great-great-grandfather was a "master of Kabbalah!"

During the program, which airs April 1st, the actress, who already studies the ancient Jewish mysticism, learned from documents that the man was "a miracle worker" who apparently saved his community from being destroyed by a fire!

And, as to be expected, Gwyneth reponded to the revelation by claiming:

"This is all kinda blowing my mind."

We don't blame her! To grow up and not only discover a faith, but then practice it - only to uncover that an old relative of yours was a master of it?

Insane! Make you kind of wonder if there's a reason things happen, you know?

PS - We bet her ex bestie Madonna will be VERY innerested to learn about this!
