Maria Sharapova sure was in a sweet mood when she stopped by E!'s Chelsea Lately for a Sept. 10 appearance to promote her new candy line Sugarpova.  But the fun didn't end there. Chelsea Handler managed to squeeze in some jokes about her relationship with the professional tennis player's father!

Sharapova was right on target from the get-go, joking that the gift of candies for Handler was "just for your bottom."

Settling into the interview, Sharapova admitted that her mother was scared for her daughter the first time she came on the show. 

"Well you can handle me, she shouldn't be scared of anything," Handler quipped.

"With you, you never know!" Sharapova reacted.

But the jokes about Sharapova's family did not stop there.

The duo began chatting about a recent birthday party for Sharapova in Los Angeles and Sharapova's father's feelings for the talk-show host.

"He kinda likes you" Sharapova laughed.

"He's been texting me," Handler teased.  "Old men like me, they want to do bad things to my body" she added.

Too much!

Handler decided to do a taste test of the candies and admitted that one candy tasted like clay and that she preferred the flirty sour gummies.

"Oh, I wonder why you like that one," Sharapova said right on target.

Tune into Chelsea Lately weeknights at 11 p.m. on E!
