In light of late night talk show host Chelsea Handler finally confirming her past romance with 50 Cent earlier this week, SOHH hit up VH1's "Big Morning Buzz Live" talk show host Carrie Keagan to gave her opinion on the former couple.
Known for interviewing high profile celebrities, Keagan imagined what their future could have been like.
"[laughs] I would love to see their babies," Keagan told SOHH when asked if Handler and 50 could have worked out together in the long run. "Yes. You know what the beauty of that is? The best thing about that relationship is that Chelsea would have been 1,000 percent in control. [laughs] Chelsea is not an oblique person. She's definitely in charge. Yeah. She knows what she wants and if Chelsea wanted 50 Cent, she would have had him...I've been trying to get out [around New York City] but it's hard. I have to get up at like 4 AM in the morning and so I'm in bed by 9 PM. I don't know any rappers that might be around unless [it's] Happy Hour. [laughs]" (SOHH)
Earlier this week, Handler broke her silence on what went down between her and 50.
"We dated, very casually," Chelsea told television host Piers Morgan. "He was, nothing happened, you know, he's a very sweet, nice guy, but obviously, I was just sampling, kind of, the atmosphere and seeing what was out there. And I'm satiated. He's fun. He's a great guy. [He's not what I expected], not at all. He's the complete antithesis of what you would imagine. He's a sweetheart, he's sweet, funny, he's got a great sense of humor. I don't really like gifts from rappers in general since I'm not a hooker. I don't like when men buy me ridiculous gifts especially when I don't know them well. I can buy my own gifts." ("Piers Morgan")
Last March, 50 credited Chelsea's down-to-earth personality as a strong driving factor.
"Chelsea is confident. I think confidence is the sexiest thing about a person. She's the kind of person that if you're blessed with the opportunity to hang out with her, you'll enjoy it. I'm not sure you'll look at her and actually want to jump over the table and f*ck her, but you might. You would leave after talking with her feeling that she is a cool person." (VIBE)
In late January, rumors emerged claiming Handler ended her relationship with 50.
A source tells the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands now) that Chelsea Handler dumped 50 Cent just before the holidays, leaving the 35-year-old rapper "heartbroken." Determined to win her back, 50 Cent -- who was first spotted canoodling with the "Chelsea Lately" host in October -- "spent Christmas sending her gifts, but she sent them back. She put a note on one that said, 'I can buy my own gifts.'" (Us Weekly)
