Chelsea Handler Inks New TV Deal

Chelsea Handler will continue to ask celebrities the most uncomfortable questions in late night for some time longer. The one-time VMA host and current late-night staple, as the host of “Chelsea Lately,” has just inked a very sweet new deal with E!

CNN reports that Chelsea’s new deal will keep her on the network through 2014 hosting her show and swell her bank account with an additional $25 million. CNN further reports that as a nice “thank you” to her staff, she’s handing out $1,000 bonuses.

“It’s a great time for women in comedy,” Handler said in a statement to Reuters about the lucrative deal, adding, “And it’s a great time to have real breasts.”

Fans of Chelsea also will have another season of her behind-the-scenes docu-series “After Lately” to look forward to. The new season kicks off on November 27, the same night as the new season of “Kourtney & Kim Take New York.” It’s one of many projects Chelsea has on her docket, including turning her bestseller, “Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea,” into a TV series for NBC, which she’ll co-star in and executive produce.

But, “After” is a project near and dear to Chelsea’s heart, tucked away under her real boobs. “My favorite [project] is ‘After Lately,’” Chelsea recently confessed to MTV News. “It’s a show that were doing behind-the scenes of ‘Chelsea Lately,’ so that’s been the most fun for me.”


Her deal with E! also gives more opportunities to produce and develop projects through her Borderline Amazing Productions.

Congrats gurl! Sisters really are doing it for themselves!
