“EXCLUSIVE: ‘I don’t care about Bieber or the Kardashians!’ Chelsea Handler reveals she had to quit her hit show because she’s over celebrities,” reads yet another tabloid headline from the Daily Mail.

The British paper’s website goes on to claim Handler “admits she is quitting [her E! show] because she is totally fed up of stars.”

“To be quite honest I don’t really care about Justin Bieber and I don’t want to talk about him anymore. In order to make that happen I had to just stop doing my show,” she’s quoted as saying.

The tab then drags in the Kardashians, and notes that “even though she is on the same network as Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” Handler feels, “You can sit around and complain about all that s**t and the Kardashians all day but if you’re participating in it then what can you do?”


Contrary to what the Daily Mail published, Handler is not “over celebrities,” and she is not “totally fed up of stars.”

She’s also not griping about the Kardashians.

Handler’s simply saying if you talk about reality stars like the Kardashians, you can’t complain about their coverage.

Regardless, a source close to Handler tells Gossip Cop exclusively that the paper’s website “twisted everything.”

Yes, the comedienne said, “I don’t want to talk about [Bieber] anymore,” but that has nothing to do with her leaving her show — or being “fed up of stars.”

Our Handler insider clarified that, despite how the Daily Mail presented it, “She doesn’t hate celebrities, she is just tired of talking about ridiculous celebrities.”
