THR reports that Chelsea Handler plans to leave the E! channel when her contract expires at the end of the year. This would bring an end to her Chelsea Lately talk show after eight years on the air.

I love her and her show it’s so funny and I’ll be sad if she leaves but understand that it’s time for her to move on.

You are OPEN–HONEST–and I really like your “I don’t give a sh_t attitude!” You tell it like it is and I agree with so many of your comments its unbelievable. And if Chelsea doers take on another gig—please let it be a GREAT talk show because Chelsea Handler outshines ALL these idiots who call themselves “talk-show hosts!”
Keep the show. One of my favorite. Been looking forward to it coming back on. Just when I starting telling everyone how good it was. Need to bring it back
