Chelsea Handler let it be known weeks ago that she’d be leaving E! when her deal with the network expired later this year; now, her departure has an official timeline. E! Wednesday said Chelsea Lately will become the late Chelsea following a live, hour-long finale on Aug. 26 at 11 p.m. While Handler has had harsh words for E! in recent months (calling the network a “sad, sad place” at one point), she and the network exchanged press release compliments today. E! thanked Handler for bringing “a distinct voice to late night,” while Handler said she will “always look back at my time on E! as most people look back at their time in college. I’m glad I went.” We think that was meant as a compliment. No word yet on how E! will fill Handler’s timeslot, or whether it will even try to mount another nightly talk show. Handler’s reps had been floating her name for a bunch of different late-night gigs, but so far, nothing has come of such talk.
