Sarah Colonna Shares Memories of Her First Car

Long before she became one of the funniest female comics in Hollywood, Chelsea Lately writer and roundtable regular Sarah Colonna had dreams of leaving Arkansas behind for a better life.

"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."
