Chelsea Handler In Talks With CBS For A Daytime Show

Not a late night show as previously thought...
Page Six reports that while CBS has denied rumors that Chelsea Handler will replace Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show at 12:30 AM.
After Handler posted a photo of herself on Instagram with CBS papers (which she called a "business meeting"), a CBS network executive said: "Chelsea Handler is a pain in the butt."
Handler actually met with the company about hosting a syndicated daytime talk show. However, there are already several names with shows, including Katie Couric, Anderson Cooper, Kris Jenner, Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake.
Handler's contract with E! will expire at the end of the year and she has said that she wants to stop hosting Chelsea Lately after seven years.
