Posted Friday April 4, 2014 10:43 PM GMT

Going into some exciting deliberations with CBS, Chelsea Handler is reportedly in talks to host her own late night talk show!

The Wrap reported that Chelsea's discussions started before David Letterman's retirement declaration, and she talked with NBC about working the later 12:30AM slot, which is held by Craig Ferguson on his "Late, Late Show."

However, the network released a statement saying, "Handler now has her eye on Letterman’s ‘Late Show’ spot instead," even though FX and CNN/HLN, and even Sirius XM radio expressed interest in picking her up.

Although nothing has been confirmed yet, Handler would be the first woman to host a late-night talk show on broadcast television since Joan Rivers' series on FOX over 25 years ago. GossipCenter wishes her the best!
