Chelsea Handler Plans to End Her E! Talk Show


THR reports that after eight years on the air, Chelsea Lately host Chelsea Handler plans to end her E! channel talk show when her contract with the network expires at the end of 2014. According to her manager Irving Azoff, Handler – who has long been dissatisfied with the network and recently told Howard Stern it was a “sad, sad place to live” – is working on plans to leave at the end of the year and already has “at least seven suitors and many ideas.” Azoff said that Handler’s new presence could include a radio show or a new late night-style show on another network or digital service like Netflix. Once Handler ends her E! show, the lineup of late night talk show hosts will no longer include any women.
