When Chelsea Met Shimon

As you already know from Israellycool, comedienne and television host Chelsea Handler is in Israel.

Yesterday, she met with Shimon Peres, who as usual went in for the kill kiss.

I love how she was told she must see two things in Israel: The Kotel (Western Wall) and Shimon Peres. Two of our oldest icons.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Chelsea filmed a one-on-one interview with Peres as part of a planned documentary specials on Netflix. She also saw Peres’ book collection.

No really.

The 91-year-old former statesman also gave Handler a tour of the facilities, including his personal library, sources said.
