Chelsea Handler Leaving E!

Chelsea Handler has nine more months remaining on her E! contract and then she will be packing up and moving to another network. The late night fixture for the network says she has multiple other networks all vying for her services and that she hasn't been happy at the network for a long time. well, when you break up with your boss, things can be a little bumpy. Her manager told The Hollywood Reporter that Chelsea has seven other places that she could land. That seems like a really big number. You expect this kind of thing when a contract is up for renewal but I doubt she wants to end up on some network like OWN where no one can find her so in reality her choices are much more narrow. I could see her ending up at TBS where they could use some help shoring up Conan or maybe she goes to a network like A&E where they would replay her show constantly and she could have a crossover show with Duck Dynasty and have a burger named after her at Wahlburgers.

I read this morning that E! pays her $9 million! That's absolutely ridiculous.

BeckyMae said...

Please make it go away now....

How old is this pic of Chelsea?

TalksTooMuch said...

And how much did she pay for that awesome photoshop????

VeronicaCostello said...

TTM, you said what I was thinking.

Enty #33 said...

OMG @ TTM I was thinikng the same thing...I've seen this chick in person...she in no way looks like that!

She got this show cuz she was screwing the comcast CEO...she got good reveiews & became a massive B*tch...I stopped watching a long time ago...makes me wonder if she finally pissed off the wrong person...

Eros said...

Good luck to her. Hope she finds a great network. Shes looking hot in the pic you got posted, Enty... Never knew her boobs were so big...good pushup bra I wonder or bewb job?

sugarbread maker said...

They're not renewing her contract. She's just getting out in front of it.

auntliddy said...

As for offers, i cant think of many stations her show wld fit into. She probably was conan syndrome, where she thinks shes much more desirable than she really is.

I just hope they don't bring back Whitney Cummings again.

Hello photo shop!

BeckyMae said...

Perhaps she's been tapping into Maniston's Aveeno supply?

Candyland said...

The photo on Celebitchy is more recent and more accurate. She's looking tired and weathered. Must be all of that vodka and coke.

Kathleen said...

Ted Harbert - Comcast CEO is a quiet family man with no chatter around him. For a long while I would have screwed Ted too - he was really looking good for a silver fox. I'd be curious where she lands and if her new gig pays nearly as much. The only place I see her fitting it Comedy Central and if I was her I would stay where I am and keep cashing checks.

headrot said...

i've been impressed that she lasted that long post-breakup. i really expected her time to E to end quickly after the end of the relationship.

Derek Harvey said...

I like to watch her occasionally. I really like Hello Ross- a very funny show. The E network in Canada pretty much shows the Kardashians 24/7. Without Chelsea and Ross they may as well call it the Kardashian network-with a side of Rich Morons of Beverly Hills and Wrestling chicks.

Not a Chelsea Handler fan, but I recently bumped into her and was quite surprised. Not only was she nice and charming, with a bawdy sense of humour, she looked great! I was expecting her to look like she drinks all the time and I don't care what her bio says, I swear she is at least 45. Not sure if it was the new haircut or she was just enjoying herself, but my personal opinion of her changed. Granted, we won't be watching her show or reading her books, but if she wanted to go out for drinks, we might just say yes...

Tina Mallette said...

I guess he wouldn't dare drop her show after they broke up because that would have been very ugly lawsuit

Tina Mallette said...

I think Chelsea has been on a health kick - she was telling everyone she was on a cleanse and maybe has curbed the booze consumption because she does seem to look better to me of late., Maybe landing a deal with another network would also put a smile on your face.

Yes E! Canada is a sad feast of Kardashian 24-7, I demand Star TV its predecessor back.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Good push up bra

Matthew said...

I also don't find her shtick funny anymore, but can you really blame her for leaving that moral and qualitative sinkhole that is E!?

It has one redeeming factor and that is Joel McHale/The Soup. And he can get away with outright bashing the hand that feeds him.

Tippie Toes said...

Good she is crass and may need some time off

Jennifer H. said...

I could see CNN wanting her show since they are wanting to be an entertainment channel now, more than news. Any of the premium channels could offer her a gig, like what Maher has on HBO. On Fox, she could be good after Arsenio. I definitely think she can find a home.

B626 said...

PLUS her new book is doing quite well on the best sellers list.
Gotta be another basic cable channel she has her eye on. Network TV would never let her get away with 80% of the subject matter she has on her round table.

Tara said...

Conan already has a late-night companion on TBS, my future husband Pete Holmes.

AppleThief4Elliot said...

Meh, this is just her stating her negotiating position.

Of course, last time, her negotiating position was prone.

N. Twinkie said...

E bullies anyone who dares speak ill of their precious Kardashians.

Pepper Spink said...

She was dating the head of E! a few years back, but it wasn't him who gave her the new contract and swanky new studio - her now-boss is a female.

I wouldn't employ this stupid woman - she not only speaks badly about her current employer, but also their management style - seriously, who does that? Maybe it's a maturity thing but she should just keep quiet, move on when the time is right and not say anything - that would be too gracious a move for her though.

She's lucky to have a job. A lot of people at E! lost theirs a short time ago and were brought back on as contractors, losing all their benefits.

And she's not even the funniest on her show - fact is,a lot of those panel members say way funnier things than her.

Merlin D. Bear said...

You're forgetting Logo and RuPaul's Drag Race franchise.
She could alternate with Michelle & Santino on the judges panel.

TalksTooMuch said...

Merlin! Are you a Drag Race fan?? I love it but no-one else here watches it!

BeckyMae said...

@TTM Mama Ru would NEVAH!I would bring ALL the T and shade if Handler ever entered that panel!

TalksTooMuch said...

Becky Mae, are you a fan too?? Did you see the first big opening when Adam Lambert was there?? I thought I'd died and gone to heaven

BeckyMae said...

Yes I love it! And there is an Aussie in it this year too. Courtney Act, who is not bad but she is a very 'fish' queen but she can really sing. He came this in Australian Idol as Courtney.

I missed the Adam Lambert one! I missed a few in the middle seasons when I didn't have cable...

Aoife said...

That picture is so photoshopped it rivals the Jimmy Choo ad for absurdity.

Merlin D. Bear said...

@TTM - Oh GODS yes!
I've been a fan since season 1 - and I'm proud to say I have a 3 for 5 track record on picking the winners within the first couple of episodes - Raja, Sharon & Jinxx ;)
This year tho it's a tougher call - my current top 3 are Ben, Courtney and Bianca - you?

TalksTooMuch said...

Yay Merlin! I love Adore and Gia, but my heart really belongs to Bianca, who has no shot at winning. I like Courtenay, but don't find her super drag-like, she looks just like a really pretty girl, you know? With a smoking -hot bawday!

It's on Out TV in Canada, and it's all over the place, so I haven't seen all the seasons, but I loooooved the Jinxx Monsoon season. She was AWESOME!

BeckyMae said...

I love Bianca too, Merlin and TTM! I actually think she has a good shot at winning...

You're right about Courtney, she is less drag and more female impersonator and I think, as more get eliminated, others may resent this.

I also love Darienne Lake, I'd love her to win it!

I kind of hated Adore but since the Anna Nicole Smith impression, she's growing on me...

TalksTooMuch said...

Oh sorry, I love Bianca because she is so freaking smart and funny, I just haven't seen her be sexy yet. Wasn't throwing shade, I totally hope she wins! I am behind, too.

I think Darienne Lake is GORGEOUS!

Unknown said...

Chelsea wishes she looked that good, that photo has been shopped within an inch of it's life, so much so unless you knew who it was you'd be guessing and the first 10 guesses wouldn't be Chelsea fucking Handler either.

I bet E! is thrilled she's leaving and even if she gets another gig they aren't going to pay her more money, plus they will have to shore her up and clean her up to make her more palatable, and E! didn't even bother to try to make her palatable. I bet her manager is sweating, more than crowing. She's a terrible person, and naturally offensive.
