Chelsea Lately Not Interested in Justin Bieber, But Reportedly Not "Fed Up" with Celebs

She’s been cracking us up for the past seven years on “Chelsea Lately,” and Chelsea Handler will pull the plug on her E! series in August because she’s tired of Justin Bieber.

The outspoken hostess joked about her decision to throw in the towel and said she’s looking forward to trying a new gig.

Handler explained, "To be quite honest I don't really care about Justin Bieber and I don't want to talk about him anymore. In order to make that happen I had to just stop doing my show."

"You can sit around and complain about all that sh*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."

Meanwhile, a source backtracked on the statements from Handler and told GossipCop that the paper’s website “twisted everything.”

Yes, the comedienne said, “I don’t want to talk about [Bieber] anymore,” but that has nothing to do with her leaving her show — or being “fed up of stars.” But the source stated that, “She doesn’t hate celebrities, she is just tired of talking about ridiculous celebrities.”
