These are some photos of Chelsea Handler ar last night’s Glamour Women of the Year Awards, held last night in NYC. Er… I’m not sure this cameltoe-enhancing catsuit was the best choice, you know? Her boobs look good, though. Chelsea went to the event alone – her NYC-based boyfriend, hotelier Andre Balazs wasn’t her date for the event. This caused Page Six to raise the Code Red: Single Lady – they claim that Andre and Chelsea broke up shortly after Halloween. They been dating for most of the year – the earliest reports about them began this past January. Here’s what Page Six is saying:
Funny girl Chelsea Handler and handsome hotelier André Balazs have split after nearly a year, sources have exclusively confirmed to Page Six.
The comedienne and host of E!’s “Chelsea Lately,” who received a Glamour Women of the Year Award last night at Carnegie Hall, walked the red carpet without Balazs by her side.
“She’s fine,” a source told us. “If she’s feeling down, she’s certainly not showing it.”
Handler and Balazs were together as recently as Halloween weekend, when she attended the “Sinners or Saints”-themed bash at the Balazs-owned Top of the Standard hosted by Balazs, Nick Rhodes, André Saraiva and Thomas Hayo. Balázs and Handler arrived in costume as “Duke and Lady von Glamoor-ass from the Weimar Republic.” Sources said the couple appeared very much together at the event, but broke up shortly after.
It was not immediately clear what provoked the split, but Handler tapes her show in LA while Balazs spends much of his time in New York. The two were first spotted together in January at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, where they looked cozy at several parties.
Handler and Balazs continued their public displays of affection at the Super Bowl in Dallas, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington, and at Handler’s signing in May of her fourth book, “Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me,” at (where else?) the Top of the Standard.
Glamour this year named the talk-show host a “Queen of the Night,” calling her “the only woman to succeed as a late-night-comedy host, ever.” Jennifer Lopez, Tory Burch and artist Cindy Sherman were also honored.
Handler said of being named as an honoree: “I think women see themselves in me . . . I’m making a fool out of myself for us. I’m happy to do it.”
A rep for Handler had no comment and Balazs’ rep did not get back to us by press time.

I always found them to be a weird couple – Andre is pretty hot, he’s rich, and he’s a catch. Unfortunately, I also think Andre likes really trashy blondes – he was rumored to be dating Courtney Love just before this hookup with Chelsea. To go from C-Love to C-Handler? Is that a downgrade? Anyway, it doesn’t sound like Chelsea is too worked up over it. That’s one of the few things I like about her – she seems to do the dumping and she moves on really quickly.
