Chelsea Handler leaving E! when contract expires
Rumblings that Chelsea Handler is unhappy with her relationship with E! came to a head on Sunday.
Individuals close to Handler told TheWrap that she's going to leave the network, ending late night talker “Chelsea Lately,” when her contract expires at the end of 2014.
One insider told TheWrap that Handler isn't happy with E!'s programming and doesn't believe that it's helping her show's ratings.
She'll be shopping the show to another network or digital service, but her next iteration of the program will be a weekly not daily show.
“Chelsea has nine months left on her contract and E! will not comment on the future of “Chelsea Lately” at this time,” and E! representative told TheWrap.
