She’s certainly made a name for herself with her sarcastic wit and snarky tone and Chelsea Handler was up to her old trick again while chatting with Joel McHale on Wednesday night (August 20).

The outspoken comedienne invited McHale to guest host her “Chelsea Lately” show and then turned around and showed up as a guest, explaining what led to her decision to leave the E! Network.

Handler declared, “This was more of a move for me to distance myself from the Kardashians. Everyone knows that.”

“Wouldn’t it be amazing, though, if I did leave and then the whole Kardashian empire just crumbled. In some stroke of crazy irony and happenstance, all of a sudden they just fell apart and then I was a national hero.”
