Chelsea Handler is moving on to greener pastures. After eight years on the E! network, she has announced through her manager, Irving Azoff, her popular late night show Chelsea Lately, will come to an end.
Irving told The Hollywood Reporter that after Chelsea’s contract is up at the end of this year, she will leave the show and E! behind. “Chelsea intends to leave when her contract expires,” he said. “She hired me to figure out her life after E! We have at least seven suitors and many ideas.”
Chelsea has had no problems expressing her frustrations with the E! network, calling it “a sad, sad place to live,” on The Howard Stern Show and adding, “They don’t know what they’re doing. They have no ideas. It’s a failure.”
“Chelsea has nine months left on her contract, and E! will not comment on the future of Chelsea Lately at this time,” an E! spokesperson said to Us Weekly.
I’m sure this won’t be the end of Chelsea Handler. I think she’s just over working with E! and wants out. I’m sure another network will pick her up, especially with her ratings. Her personality is too big to just fizzle out now. I wish her the best of luck with the transition!
