Comedian Chelsea Handler is the celebrity that is next to discover her roots on Who Do You Think You Are? (WDYTYA). It already has released that Chelsea discovers that her grandfather, Karl Stoecker was in the German Army during WWII. I think that there is probably more to the story that hasn’t been released. Chelsea gets to go to Germany to find more information on her family. Cleanse says that she “researched my grandfather, who was a German soldier and I’m a half-Jew/half-German, so, for me, I thought that would be a good dynamic.” She also adds that “it actually turned out much better that I thought, and I got to see parts of the world I hadn’t been to, so that was exciting.”
The episode airs on TLC channel Aug. 6th at 9 p.m. (eastern & western times).
