Chelsea Handler Dating Animal Planet’s Dave Salmoni

By  | 

Sorry, Chuy. Chelsea Handler has a new boyfriend: Dave Salmoni, Animal Planet hunk and lion-cub whisperer.

Life & Style‘s Scene Queens have learned that Chelsea – who recently broke up with her powerful boyfriend Ted Harbert, president and CEO of Comcast (which owns E! Entertainment Television, which runs her talk show Chelsea Lately) is seeing Dave, and he has visited her Marina del Rey condo a bunch of times. “Chelsea and Dave are really cute together; he absolutely adores her. They're really happy and love to laugh,” a source tells Life & Style.

While Chelsea is sharp and acid-tongued, Dave is sweet and mild-mannered. What do they have in common? As we see it: Fearlessness (she takes on Denise Richards, he encounters exotic wildlife), and a shared love of animals.

Tell us: Will this coupling last – or is Chelsea too into corporate suits?
