Her contract with E! expires at the end of this year, and she is taking her self elsewhere. Her manager Irving Azoff gave a statement.
“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.
Handler has been open about her frustration with programming at E! In a March 5 appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show, she described E! as “a sad, sad place to live,” adding, “They don’t know what they’re doing. They have no ideas. It’s a failure.”
As much as I kind of, don’t like Handler’s brand of comedy I have to agree with her about E! Basically most of what is aired on there is trash. We have hours and hours of Kardashians. That in an of itself is enough for me to shutter the whole damn network. I think Chelsea Handler will be just fine no matter which direction she chooses to go. She’s got another 9 months or so to figure it out anyway.
