Chelsea Handler Out at E!

Chelsea Handler to end talk show Chelsea Lately after eight years.

Chelsea Handler plans to leave the E! channel when her contract expires at the end of the year, bringing a close to her Chelsea Lately talk show after eight years, according to her manager, Irving Azoff.
Handler has long been vocal about her dissatisfaction with the network though such complaints could be perceived as part of a negotiation. In this case, Azoff tells The Hollywood Reporter, "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.” He adds that plans for Handler could include a radio presence and a possible nightly or weekly late-night show on another network or digital service.
An E! spokesperson stated to THR: "Chelsea has nine months left on her contract and E! will not comment on the future of Chelsea Lately at this time."
Handler is said to feel that she is at the top of her game with a new book, Uganda be Kidding Me -- her first to sit at No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list for more than a week. She is in the midst of a tour of more than 30 markets, "a massive piece of business" that also will include dates overseas, according to Geof Wills, president of Live Nation Comedy. She will shoot her first stand-up special at the Harris Theatre in Chicago in June to air on cable in October.
Handler's reps at CAA have been setting meetings with companies including Sony Television and Lionsgate as well as FX to discuss her future. The extent of interest in her in those quarters is not clear. “I don’t know if anybody’s going to pay her as much as E!,” says a source at one company that has been contacted.
Handler is said to be making about $9 million a year while delivering average viewership of 572,000 a night -- a decline from 839,000 in 2010. Ad revenue also has dipped more than 15 percent in recent years to $134.5 million, according to Kantar Media.

Yes!!! when this broad first came on the scene her show was funny as hell, then all a sudden this bitch like she woke up one day and said fuck it!! bitch stopped caring about her show and was obviously drunk as hell on set, she ceased being funny and snarky and was just a drunken, coked out hot ass mess. add to that she is one raggedly ass looking hoe and the only thing she had going for her was she was funny, till she said fuck it, its like someone put a root on that bitch, good riddance her sloppy, drunken coke head don't give a shit ass, don't need to have a tv show and as for that book being on the best sellers list? who the fuck are they kidding, seems like every asshat makes that list these days, no one takes that shit seriously anymore either. then again her raggedly ass probably went fucking some Ugandan man and his family put a root on this hoe.
