Chelsea Handler Dating Animal Planet’s Dave Salmoni

Sorry, Chuy. Chelsea Handler has a new boyfriend: Dave Salmoni, Animal Planet hunk and lion-cub whisperer.

Life & Style‘s Scene Queens have learned that Chelsea – who recently broke up with her powerful boyfriend Ted Harbert, president and CEO of Comcast (which owns E! Entertainment Television, which runs her talk show Chelsea Lately) - is seeing Dave, and he has visited her Marina del Rey condo a bunch of times. “Chelsea and Dave are really cute together; he absolutely adores her. They’re really happy and love to laugh,” a source tells Life & Style.

While Chelsea is sharp and acid-tongued, Dave is sweet and mild-mannered. What do they have in common? As we see it: Fearlessness (she takes on Denise Richards, he encounters exotic wildlife), and a shared love of animals.

Tell us: Will this coupling last – or is Chelsea too into corporate suits?

      YES! I hope they last. When I watched last night’s episode I felt so giddy. They do have a good chemistry together and it’s adorable. I hope they settle down and get a baby cheetah.
