As we all know Chelsea Handler is moving on from hosting her own show on the E! network when her contract ends this year. Where her next stop is… we aren’t so sure? There was a minute this week where we thought we had an idea of Handler’s future on television, but now that idea is completely out the window.
Interestingly enough Craig Ferguson’s contract at CBS’ The Late Late Show ends in June of 2015. Rumors began to connect Handler to the show when she posted as cryptic Instagram photo that showed a stack of papers with the CBS logo on them and a caption “Business Meeting”. With the two television hosts facing the end of their contacts and the Instagram photo people were ready to anoint Handler as the next host. Not so fast…
A rep from CBS has blatantly denied rumors that Handler will replace Ferguson. When reached for comment CBS neither confirmed or denied the rumor that Handler will be the next host of The Late Late Show. At this point, it’s completely up in the air, which is exactly what Hollywood likes to do to the public – keep us guessing. Which means if I had to guess, I’m still going to say Handler will be the next host of the show despite the outright denial by a CBS rep.
We will keep you posted on the developments.
