She’s over it! The late night talk show host explains her exit.
If you thought you’re the only one who’s sick of hearing about Justin Bieber, you’re wrong. Because so is Chelsea Handler. In fact, Handler is so sick of talking about him that she is ending her show Chelsea Lately over it. In a recent statement, Handler bluntly explained her exit from the show.
“To be quite honest I don’t really care about Justin Bieber and I don’t want to talk about him anymore," Handler said. "In order to make that happen I had to just stop doing my show. Straight away."
The 39-year-old comedian and host said, "You end up getting so into the mix that it changes the topics of the day. You can sit around and complain about all that s**t and the Kardashians all day but if you’re participating in it then what can you do? It really didn’t feel great doing the show and the only way to sort things out was to extricate myself from the entire situation."
Handler has higher ambitions for herself when it comes to her future hosting gigs.
"I want to talk to people who have changed the course of the world. Inventors, invaders and people who have been doing exciting stuff.”
Bieber has been a guest on the show a handful of times and while Handler was able to conduct an upbeat and lively interview, she is over it.
Handler is also done talking about the Kardashians, as she claims. Although the famous family is close with the show, Handler is moving on to more “exciting stuff.” Khloe Kardashian has hosted Handler’s show a few times and momager, Kris Jenner, is a close friend of Handler’s as well, with some Instagram selfies to prove it.
With the recent late night show shake-up, there were a lot of moves happening and one rumored move was Chelsea Handler taking over the Late Late Show, currently hosted by Craig Ferguson.
