Chelsea Handler Ending Talk Show Later This Year
Chelsea Handler announced Sunday that she will end her talk show, “Chelsea Lately”, and leave her home network, E!, when her contract expires at the end of this year, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter.
“Chelsea intends to leave when her contract expires,” said her manager, Irving Azoff. “She hired me to figure out her life after E! We have at least seven suitors and many ideas,” reportedly including a “radio presence” and a possible new talk show on a different network.
Handler has been very vocal recently regarding her unhappiness with her current network, including an appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show March 5, calling E! a sad, sad place to live … They don’t know what they’re doing. They have no ideas. It’s a failure.”
She later told USA TODAY that she’s ready to move on from her eight-year stint as host of “Chelsea Lately”, telling the paper, “I don’t know if I want to be talking about Justin Bieber when I’m 40.”
