BREAKING. Chelsea Lately on E! Entertainment is over; Chelsea Handler done with E! and ending her late night talk show on 26 August.

Chelsea Handler is done with E! Entertainment (DStv 124) and the late night talk show Chelsea Lately will end on 26 August in America.

Chelsea Handler's disdain of E! Entertainment surfaced in March when she blasted E! Entertainment saying E! Entertainment is "a sad, sad place to live" and that "they don't know what they're doing. They have no ideas. It's a failure".

"Chelsea brought a distinct voice to late night with her acerbic wit and fearless commentary and we look forward to providing fans with a memorable send-off that lives up to that tradition," says Suzanne Kolb, E! president in a statement announcing that Chelsea Lately is over.

"We are grateful to the Chelsea Lately team for making this show so special for seven years".

Chelsea Lately will tellingly end production months before the contract ends in December this year - a telling indication of just how much the relation between Chelsea Handler and E! Entertainment soured.

"It was a fantastic seven years," says Chelsea Handler in the press statement. "I will always look back at my time on E! as most people look back at their time in college. I'm glad I went".

Hello Ross on E! Entertainment also just abruptly ended its second season, with no explanation, and also before it was supposed to - Hello Ross is of course being produced by the same production company as the one doing Chelsea Lately.
