"Bridesmaids" breakout star Rebel Wilson didn't just stop by "Chelsea Lately" to get interviewed by Chelsea Handler. She was there to take over the show, renaming it "Rebel Lately." But how did she land the temporary gig? Wilson revealed during her monologue that it was as simple as sending in an "audition tape."

Wilson got to run Handler's usual gang of comedians during the round table, moderating a discussion about "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."

"I actually think this family, they could be the next Kardashians," she said. "Seriously. She’s got three sisters. One’s already had a baby."

Wilson tweeted during the show that Handler was probably drunk when she agreed to let Wilson take over. But Handler was game, and even sat down as Wilson's guest.

"Chelsea Lately" airs weeknights at 11 p.m. ET on E!
