End Of ‘Chelsea Lately’ Is Near
We’re nearing the end of Chelsea Lately on the E! channel according to her manager Irving Azoff. The Hollywood Reporter claims Chelsea Handler plans to leave the E! channel when her contract expires at the end of the year, bringing her late night talk show to a close after eight years.
Azoff told THR, “”Chelsea intends to leave when her contract expires. She hired me to figure out her life after E! We have at least seven suitors and many ideas.” Noting they’ve had several other possible suitors stepping forward, looking to make Handler a deal. Handler’s reps at CAA have been setting meetings with Sony Television, Lionsgate and FX to discuss possibilities.
Handler voiced on Howard Stern’s show, that she’d like a forum like Netflix for her next project. Broadcast networks probably are out, because of Handler’s raunchy sense of humor. Which completely opens the possibility of Netflix, Hulu or Amazon streaming an uncensored talk-show, given her track record of brutal honesty maybe this is what America needs.
