Handler grew up in the suburban town of Livingston, New Jersey. The youngest of six children, she was raised in Reform Judaism by her Mormon mother Rita and Jewish father Seymour. Handler has said that while growing up, she felt like an outsider, telling a reporter, "We lived in this nice Jewish neighborhood...Everyone had Mercedes and Jaguars, and I was going to school in a Pinto." In a June 2011 edition of her show, she and author James Van Praagh discuss the death of her brother, Chet, when she was 9.Handler had an abortion at age 16, which she discussed at an interview in 2011. At age 19, Handler moved from New Jersey to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career, and two years later she decided to become a stand-up comic after telling her story about a DUI to a class of other offenders, who found her story funny.

On the January 29, 2008 episode of Chelsea Lately she said she had been asked to do season six of the hit television series Dancing with the Stars but declined. Handler was ranked #91 on the 2009 Maxim Hot 100.

On the April 18, 2011, episode of Chelsea Lately, Handler announced to the audience that she was dating, again, and at the end of the show revealed a photo of herself and Andre Balazs at a table.

News and Piers Morgan Tonight on May 10, 2011, she continued to avoid admitting that she and Balazs were together, despite the relationship being brought up because of Balazs' presence at her Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me book party.
