Chelsea Handler Reveals How She Lost Respect for E!, and Quit (Video)

“It was E! I don’t have a lot of respect for them,” comedian tells TheWrap during Power Women Breakfast San Francisco

Comedian Chelsea Handler has no holds barred when it comes to telling people why she left the E! network after eight years of hosting a talk show.

“It was E! I don’t have a lot of respect for them,” she said at TheWrap’s first Power Women Breakfast in San Francisco on Friday.

“It was a great opportunity to give my friends jobs, it was a great experience and I’m grateful and I appreciate it but it was time to move on. I wanted to talk about things other than Lindsay Lohan, there was only so much I could take.”

She added: “I want to be somewhere where I respect the people I’m working with.”
