Heather Mc Donald, one of Chelsea Handler's long time friends and employees says the comedian was so tough to be around, she lived in constant fear. Heather says she had no idea the show was coming to an end when it did.
Heather is set to appear on Matt Weiss and Theo Von's "Allegedly" podcast this week where she opens up about her career on "Chelsea Lately." It's interesting, Heather says everyone on the crew was scared of Handler. Listen to the clip to hear how she found out it was over.
But her fans won't have to wait that long to get a glimpse of what her new show might be like.
Starting early next year, Handler will be doing a series of specials for the streaming service, where she can experiment with some twists on the old talk format.
The 39-year-old wants to ditch the monologue and guest format that's been a hallmark of late-night television.
There's an idea to leave the confines of a studio and go on the road.
And the comedian known for lampooning the rich and famous might not even work celebrities into the act.
