Chelsea Handler To End E! Show After Eight-Year Run

After eight years on the air, Chelsea Handler will be ending her hit E! latenight talk show Chelsea Lately this season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The news comes after a Variety report that E! and Chelsea are disputing over the terms of her contract.

Her manager Irving Azoff told THR that the comedian will not seek a contract renewal when it expires in nine months.

"Chelsea intends to leave when her contract expires," Azoff said. "She hired me to figure out her life after E! We have at least seven suitors and many ideas.”

Those future plans include a radio show and another late-night show on a different network or on a digital platform. She voiced interest earlier this month in working with Netflix.

The raunchy host has been vocal about her dissatisfaction with the network. She often makes digs at E! on her show and recently described the net as "a sad, sad place to live." "They don't know what they're doing," she said in early March on Howard Stern’s radio program. "They have no ideas. It's a failure."

Her new book, Uganda be Kidding Me, is a The New York Times best-seller. It's the first of her series of bestselling books to nab the no. 1 spot on the list for more than a week. She is in the midst of an international comedy tour and will shoot her first stand-up special in June.

The comedienne -- the only female late-night host on TV -- reportedly earns $9 million a year from the show, whose average viewership and ad revenue are both declining.

This E! personality is everybody's favorite friend!

Chelsea Handler grabbed a healthy dinner at Crossroads restaurant in West Hollywood with pal Mary McCormack last night, and judging by the smiles on the ladies' faces, they had a blast!

The blonde comedian has been busy lately with a promotional tour for her new book Uganda Be Kidding Me, so it's nice to see that she still makes time for her girlfriends.

One person she might not need to squeeze into her schedule in the future? Jen Aniston!

According to a recent Star magazine report, the Friends star's fiancé Justin Theroux can't stand the Chelsea Lately host and thinks she's a bad influence on his lady love.

"Justin thinks she's rude and obnoxious. He feels she lures Jen to parties and encourages her to act like she's single," a source told the weekly.

We would die for a night on the town with Chelsea!




Chelsea Handler Asks The Wanted Which Bandmate Had Sex With Lindsay Lohan

May 29, 2013 10:00 AM


Chelsea Handler is notorious for making her guests uncomfortable in the hot seat. And she didn't disappoint while interviewing The Wanted last night.

Max George, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker, and Siva Kaneswaran dropped by Chelsea Lately to promote their new E! reality series The Wanted Life and ended up talking about having sex with Lindsay Lohan and feuding with One Direction.

"Which one of you was penetrating Lindsay Lohan?" Chelsea asked bluntly.

"No idea," Max, who has admitted to having a fling with her in the past, said. "Now that was Nathan [Sykes]. Here's not here!" (The fifth Wanted member Nathan Sykes was home recovering from throat surgery.)

When asked by E! News in a previous interview whether he had enjoyed a "snog" with the troubled starlet, Max said, "Yes, we did -- a little one. She's a friend of all of ours and she is a lovely girl. We wish her all the best, wherever she is."

"She was good to party with, but there's definitely not going to be any babies on the horizon," he also said.

Linds recently posted an Instagram of herself and Max together in what appeared to be a hotel room.

The guys also talked about "prowling" for girls -- noting that American girls are "quite open" compared to their British counterparts -- and their beef with fellow British boy band 1D.

"There's a few questions that need to be asked of a couple of them," Max, who had a Twitter spat with 1D band member Zayn Malik. "I'm suspicious of one of his reasons."

"I think it's him that's confused," he continued, not addressing any particular One Directioner. "But they're all right. I think definitely a couple of them are really sound, and the others are all right."

Oh, boys. Why can't we all just get along?

Chelsea Handler Opens Up About Her Abortion At Sixteen

Feb 9, 2012 02:15 PM

CHandler060511_04_X17WM230.jpgChelsea Handler is talking about how "delusional" she was when getting pregnant at the age of sixteen.

While appearing on The Rosie Show, The E! talk show host said the following about how her parents urged her to get an abortion right away. Chelsea says they told her:

    "You're throwing your entire life away. You're supposed to create a life for yourself. We want you to enjoy your life and not be raising a child, and we're certainly not going to raise it for you."

O'Donnell then comments against those who say an abortion can ruin a person's life. Rosie says:

    "That's not the stuff I've heard from my friends who've had abortions. Listen, not that it was a casual thing that they never think about again, but it wasn't a life-defining negative thing."

Handler adds, "You should do whatever you want with your body and you shouldn't let anyone tell you what to do."

Perhaps she even had a few spirits last night?

Chelsea Handler was snapped leaving Tavern in Brentwood on Wednesday evening, and the comedienne appears to be handling her split from hotelier boyfriend Andre Balazs quite well.

"She's fine," a source recently told Page Six. "If she's feeling down, she's certainly not showing it." Handler and Balazs dated for seven months, and she previously dated rapper 50 Cent, Animal Planet host/hottie Dave Salmoni and NBC executive Ted Harbert. Hmm, wonder who she'll date next?




MTV Video Music Awards Won't Have A Host, But They'll Have Beyoncé!

Your move, Lady Gaga.

After seeing the last two rounds of hosting duties go to Russell Brand and Chelsea Handler, MTV has opted to not have a host for its 2011 Video Music Awards.

Perhaps this was because Gaga upstaged everyone with her meat dress? Hey, you never know.

Before officially making the announcement, Amy Doyle, the awards show's executive producer, spoke to Billboard and skirted their question about whether or not there would be a host this year. She told the mag:

    "It's going down to the wire. Hosting is such a unique element. We feel we got it right by putting new talent on the stage like Chelsea and Russell. We're really challenging ourselves to find the right person so that the show feels complete."

So the right person is no person at all!

It looks like the awards show will be focusing on the one thing it should be worried about - music. MTV just announced that Beyoncé will be performing at the show, which airs this Sunday, August 28. B has three nods this year, including Best Female Video.
