Chelsea Handler, with Chuy to the side, speaking to the press this morning

Comedian, TV Host and West Hollywood Halloween Carnival Queen Chelsea Handler and her little nugget assistant Chuy were out on Santa Monica Promenade (near Arizona) today displaying "Plush Potties." Just think fancy port-a-potties with fireplaces, flat screen TVs and most importantly, an extremely clean environment.

“As a frequent traveler, I’ve seen some nasty public restrooms, and it’s a horrible feeling to come out feeling dirtier than when you went in," Hander explained this morning. "With the ’Plush Potties‘ national tour, Charmin is finally offering the opportunity to go in style!” Handler partnered with the toilet paper company to address the public bathroom crisis across America. The crisis as in few public bathrooms available to the public. According to Handler, there are only around 200 public bathrooms in Los Angeles.
