Chelsea Handler credits her comedic career to her own white privilege.

During the latest episode of "Red Table Talk" with Jada Pinkett Smith and mom Adrienne Banfield-Jones, Handler said she wouldn't have had her own show if she wasn't white. 

"When you look at your life and you looked at being rewarded in Hollywood for my bad behavior … a black girl would never have gotten her own show for telling celebrities how stupid they are," the comedian said, referring to "The Chelsea Handler Show" in 2006. 

"Never!" Pinkett Smith chimed in.
