Paula Patton, 'Chelsea Lately'According to Chelsea Handler, "when you don't look like your baby at all ... people think you're the nanny." That's certainly been Paula Patton's experience, as she detailed on 'Chelsea Lately' (Tue., 11PM ET on E!).

Patton has a white mother and a black father. She's married to Robin Thicke and they have one child, but he hasn't picked up any of her African-American traits.

"He's blond, he has blue eyes. It's crazy," she said of her son. "Everybody's like, did you have anything to do with this? They think we like adopted a Russian child."

She sees it coming in time, though. "Blackness takes time," she explained. "A tan is coming in, the hair's curlier, I'm telling you."
