Chelsea Handler Leaving 'Lately' Show


Jewish comedian Chelsea Handler is ending her talk show, “Chelsea Lately,” after seven years at the helm.

Handler has hosted the late night chat series on the E! Network since 2007, but will not renew her contract for more seasons.

Her manager Irving Azoff confirmed the departure, saying: “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 added that Handler is open to the possibility of hosting her own radio show or another TV talk show in the future.

In addition to “Lately,” Handler has written four best-selling books and acted in several TV shows and films, like “This Means War” with actress Reese Witherspoon.
