will host the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards Sept. 12 in L.A., marking the third time a woman has hosted the show in its history.
"If there's one awards show that I should be hosting, it's probably this one," Handler said.
"My personality probably wouldn’t gell with the Emmys or the Golden Globes."
Handler confirmed she would be airing a week of music-award-themed-episodes on her show Chelsea Lately leading up to the VMAS, which will see Justin Bieber, Drake, and Kanye West perform.
"Thank You to everyone for ur excitement about the vmas," Handler Tweeted Thursday.
"And 2 those of u who hate me, Thank you 2. I'd be a real loser if everyone liked me."
