Chelsea Handler and her nugget sidekick Chuy are preparing to take their final bow. According to Handler’s manager Irving Azoff, this year will be the last for Handler’s E! show Chelsea Lately.
Azoff told The Hollywood Reporter that after Handler’s contract is up at the end of this year, she will end the show that’s been on the air for eight years.
“Chelsea intends to leave when her contract expires,” Azoff said. “She hired me to figure out her life after E! We have at least seven suitors and many ideas.”
Handler has been open about her frustrations with the E! network, calling it “a sad, sad place to live,” on The Howard Stern Show and adding, “They don’t know what they’re doing. They have no ideas. It’s a failure.”
“Chelsea has nine months left on her contract, and E! will not comment on the future of Chelsea Lately at this time,” an E! spokesperson told Us.
Handler’s book Uganda Be Kidding Me was released earlier this month and has been on the New York Times bestseller list for more than a week.
