Chelsea Handler is headed for Netflix in 2016!
She's not exactly sure what that specifically means but that's okay!
Since she left Chelsea Lately, after spending seven years on E!, she needed a little break. So she took three months off.
Now, she's ready to get back in the game and is actively developing her new show with Netflix execs. She said:
"We don't have a clear idea of what my talk show will be like in 2016, but I know what I don't want to do and what I do want to do. I don't want it to be just my audience that was at E!. I want to grow up. I would like a healthy mix of everything that goes on around the world, mixed with interesting stuff in our country. The well-roundedness of '60 Minutes' but faster, quicker, cooler."
Hmm, a modern 60 Minutes hosted by Chelsea Handler?
That sounds amazing! We know she'd be perfect.

She's really excited about her partnership with Netflix, saying:
"It's such a different relationship than with E!; it's nice to be involved in a show where I do respect their opinions. It's like going out with a guy that you're proud to be seen with. I don't want to have to read the New York Post, or pick up a Star magazine to read about Bruce Jenner — I don't care. I don't care, and I can say that, and I'm allowed to be honest about it."
Wow, sounds like she's really feeling the wind beneath her wings.
Can't wait to see her new show! …whatever it ends up being! LOLz!
