Months ago, you’ll probably remember the Internet was all abuzz with talk of Chelsea Handler’s sex tape. Well, the folks at Radar have impeccable timing, clearly sitting on the next phase of the story until tonight, the day after Handler’s name is flooding the Web again for having hosted the MTV Video Music Awards last night.
