Chelsea Handler, the host of “Chelsea Lately” is set to move from her late night E! Show to hosting the annual MTV Video Music Awards.

The raunchy, no-holds barred comedian is perfect for the 2010 MTV VMA’s not only for her stunning looks and comedic presence but also because Russell Brand, who has hosted for the past 2 years, is getting rather old.

Among hosting her own late night show on E!, Chelsea has toured with Comedy Central as a stand-up comedian and has even published her own books. Handler also has her own column in Cosmopolitan.

Chelsea Handler will be only the 2nd female host of the MTV Video Music Awards. This leaves us to wonder if her role will have us laughing along with her or praying for the show to be over.

When asked about hosting the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, here is what Chelsea had to say: “This has been a huge year for hip-hop and rap, and it is well-known that I have the closest ties with these communities musically and sexually. I am to rap and hippity-hop what Warren Buffet is to finance, minus the sex.”

We shall see how that statement plays out when she comes face to face with Kanye West, who is set to perform/present at this years awards show. Of course, everyone will be watching what Kanye does after his Taylor Swift interruption on last years MTV VMA’s.

All in all Chelsea Handler should be a good host for the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. It will however come down to whether or not she can fend off Kanye West and entertain the crowd with her raw humor.

You can catch out Chelsea Handler on “Chelsea Lately” which airs on E! weeknights at 11:30/10:30c.

Also be sure to tune in MTV on September 12th when Chelsea Handler hosts the 2010 Video Music Awards.
