It’s not set in stone, but Chelsea Handler‘s probably getting her own show on Netflix. Makes sense that she’d be looking for a new gig considering her announcement earlier this year that she’d be leaving Chelsea Lately at the end of 2014.
From The New York Post:
Netflix is close to a deal with wisecracking author and E! talk-show host Chelsea Handler for a new show, The Post has learned.
“Handler has a deal with Netflix, but the format is to be decided,” said one source close to the talks.
Handler raised a ruckus a few weeks ago when she went on Howard Stern’s satellite-radio show and criticized her current employer.
During the interview, she also mentioned that she thought Netflix would be a good place to land a new gig.
It’d be interesting to see how this pans out considering Netflix has no programming like this, so it could be big. I’m not the biggest Chelsea Handler fan, but maybe with the right people around her, a new show could shape up to be pretty good!

I’m sorta torn on Chelsea Handler – on one hand, if you will, she’s quite crass and bawdy, which, for a woman in Hollywood is not really a recipe for success, so I kind of applaud her for not giving a shit about what she says. On the other hand… she’s crass and bawdy and doesn’t give a shit about what she says, you know? In theory, I like that she’s a mess, but in actuality, it’s pretty off-putting.
In any case, it’s because of those conflicting feelings that I don’t watch Chelsea Lately (and that I’m curious as to how her and Jennifer Aniston are apparently BFF). If you do watch the show, however, you’ll probably be sad to know that it’s coming to an end in December.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Handler has long been vocal about her dissatisfaction with the network though such complaints could be perceived as part of a negotiation. In this case, Azoff tells The Hollywood Reporter, “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.
An E! spokesperson stated to THR: “Chelsea has nine months left on her contract and E! will not comment on the future of Chelsea Lately at this time.”
Well, that’s that. I wonder what she’ll end up doing next? Hopefully not writing another book – I read one of them and the entire first chapter was dedicated to her love of masturbation as a kid. Thanks for sharing, but not really something we needed to know.

Chelsea Handler is always running her mouth about some celebrity or other, and she’s showing no signs of stopping. This time around, it’s Taylor Swift she has thoughts on – mainly that TSwift goes through so many boyfriends so quickly because she’s a virgin who won’t put out and men are only interested in getting laid, so they hit the pike once they realise she’s not going to open her legs.
From Watch What Happens Live:
“My theory about Taylor Swift is that she’s a virgin,” she said. “That everyone breaks up with her because they date her for two weeks and she’s like, ‘I’m not going to do it’ and they’re like, ‘Oh well forget it – then I don’t want to date you’.
“They think they’re going to have sex with her and every guy thinks – just like when they date a lesbian, they think they’re going to turn them straight – every guy thinks they’re going to devirginise her and they’re not. She’s never going to get devirginised, ever ever ever ever ever.”
Is Taylor Swift really a virgin? Hmm, I don’t know. There was a report in the press when she was dating Harry Styles which said that the relationship ended because she wouldn’t put out as often as he’d have liked. But who knows! Women tend to need/want sex a bit less than men (GENERALLY, so calm down, horndog ladies!) so maybe not putting out as much as he wanted means that she didn’t want to have sex six times a day. Who can say?
Part of me sort of thinks it would be great if she is a virgin, though. As a very late bloomer myself, there ain’t shit wrong with waiting for someone who makes you feel like cartoon hearts are flying out of your ears 24/7 – especially when she’d be slut shamed if she was actually sleeping with all the guys she dates for short periods of time. Frankly, it’s none of anyone’s business how much anyone has sex, whether it’s not at all or 20 times a day, but this is celebrity gossip and we’re talking about it, so whatever.
On a totally different note, am I missing something with Chelsea Handler? I don’t hate her, but I definitely don’t think she’s funny.
