"The first car I ever had was a Chevrolet Cavalier. It was gray. I drove it right to Hardee's and filled out an application because then I had to get a job. Working at Hardee's was exactly as you would think it would be," Colonna, 37, laughed to Us Weekly. "I worked there with my high school boyfriend Bucky, who had a mustache."

Wanting more for herself, Colonna -- who would later pen a memoir, Life As I Blow It: Tales of Love, Life & Sex...Not Necessarily in That Order -- moved to L.A. and befriended Chelsea Handler, now 37, during an improv class.

"We didn't do well in that class, but we did become friends. I think I won," joked Colonna, star and executive producer of After Lately. "It's a successful story because I get to be friends with Chelsea. And I've seen her eat chicken wings -- it's pretty gross."
