Chelsea Handler was at the beach recently, paddle boarding as apparently every celebrity ever does, when she ran into one scary situation.
She was attacked by a sea lion!!
"This summer, after recovering from my ACL surgery, I managed to sustain only one other bodily injury. I was innocently paddle boarding in the Pacific when suddenly a rogue sea lion leaped up and viciously attacked my leg."
So what happened? Did she egg it on somehow? Or accidentally whack it in the face with her paddle?
"I fell off my paddle board and I saw a sea lion who was following me out. I was with some friends and I left them. I don't know where they went, but anyway, a sea lion came around, looked me in the face and I thought, 'F-ck!' I'm like, 'I know I'm going to get bitten by a sea lion!' Of course I would! Who else would get attacked? I just remember from being on safari the guy was like, 'Just make loud noises.' So I'm in the water with one arm in the paddle board and I [squawked] and it worked! It really worked."
Wow! That must've been scary!
At least she knew what to do. And now we do too!
If you're paddle boarding and see a sea lion, make some noise!
We're glad she's okay!
