The odd couple
When you think of Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent dating, you think of them as an odd couple. The Caucasian Handler grew up in the suburbs of New Jersey in a large family with a Jewish father and a Mormon mother. The African American 50 Cent grew up as hardly a wanksta. Orphaned by the age of 8, he was selling drugs on the street at 12 and became the leader of his own drug operation by his teens, pulling in over $5,000 a day. Before he signed with Eminem’s Shady Records at 27, he was shot nine times at 25.
But odd couples can work, as social psychologist Susan K. Perry notes. As reported at Web MD, “In the real world, Perry says, you may find more appeal in someone who is different in some ways. “The key is, which ways?”
Although Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent are different, they do share powerful similarities. Both are 35 years old. Both are in the entertainment business. Both have become quite wealthy. Both were born on the east coast.
