Chelsea Handler is always great for making us laugh yet cringe, and she was in rare form during her Apr. 26 appearance on ‘The Tonight Show.’ She trashed her former network E! and claimed that she didn’t have a Kardashian-size rump to stay there.
Chelsea Handler, 41, stopped by to visit with Jimmy Fallon, 41, and while praising her new home at Netflix and her upcoming show Chelsea, she threw some big time shade at the E!, the network that made her a household name. Keep reading for her biting comments about how much she hated the place.
Chelsea looked gorgeous in a tight blue dress and shiny silver pumps as she strode onto Jimmy’s stage to promote her new Netflix show Chelsea, which premieres May 11. Jimmy asked her why she’d leave the safety of a regular gig like Chelsea Lately, she claimed, “I didn’t have a big enough a** to stay on that network,” in a clear slam at the Kardashians and E!.
As for leaving E!, she revealed “It made me nervous, but it’s good to be nervous. I don’t want to take anything for granted and I want to get in a good mood when I get to work each day. I was so annoyed. This place (E!) is so stupid. I want to not be annoyed…I don’t want to be an ass, I want to be happy. It was like I had my period the entire time.” OUCH!
As to why she chose Netflix as her next home, she said, “I like to be out of my comfort zone, I like to be challenged when I do stuff. I don’t want to get comfortable. With Netflix I can be able to do this whole new show…I’m just so excited about it because I don’t know what it is either.”
But she does actually have an idea what she wants it to be. “It’s a college education that I forgot to get that Netflix is funding. It is what you want college to be once you turn 40 and realize what you’re actually interested in and think you know what you don’t know. But also keeping my sense of humor about everything….like imagine if 60 Minutes was funny.”
One topic Chelsea sadly didn’t touch is why she has made it a habit in 2016 of sending nearly nude selfies to her friends via Instagram. She used a Bonsai bush to cover up her nether-regions while wishing tennis ace Maria Sharapova a Happy 29th Birthday on Apr. 19, while she went without a prop and used nothing but her hand to cover up her vajayjay in a photo celebrating pal Reese Witherspoon turning 40 on Mar. 22. We would have loved an explanation to those racy pics!
