Chelsea Handler is ready to bring the controversial punch line back to late-night television.
This week after hosting "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", The resident host told Varietythat he was interested in his show while on vacation.
"I obviously have very strong and loud opinions and want to share them," she admitted. "It's good for many to make a female voice, especially at times like this."
She used the "Kimmel" confession tothe Supreme Court against Roe. We talked about topics such as overturning the Wade caseand overturning the decisions ofGhislaine Maxwell and R. Kelly. , And a January 6 hearing on the 2021 riots.
"And that really made me think. These conversations take place every few years about whether I want to go back to midnight or to a talk show. I always I'm thinking about why I don't want to do that, "she said. In an interview.
"I feel it's time," continued the handler. "It's very important to be represented and to represent a woman, be loud and strong, have an indomitable spirit about it, stand up and say something. Ask someone to talk to you and give many people a sense of security. You can give it. Not only the whites who are confident that they are on our side, but it's totally different.
"No one really can experience what it's like to be a woman other than us, so if you ask someone else to comment on it, the opinion of a white man is totally irrelevant. "
The current midnight lineup is for all men across the major network. Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers and Trevor Noah will soon go nowhere, but the slot will open whenJames Corden leaves the "Late Late Show" next summer. ..
However, she claimed that the handler had never chatted with a CBS tycoon.
"I personally haven't talked to anyone other than the agent, as they were only testing the body of water to see how interested I was. I didn't talk to anyone directly about a particular slot, "she said. "But yes, I'm interested in getting back there, so I'll talk to all these people about what those opportunities look like and whether it's the right place for me. Consider it when the conversation matches my level of interest. "
The handler has expressed the idea thatwill restart E. "Chelsea Lately"Talk Show — Held from 2007 to 2014 — As “Chelsea Lately”.
"It's the same white problem. Too many white men are doing the same job," she told Variety.
"I can't explain why there aren't any more women hosting the show. Maybe I'm not interested, but I doubt it. People say it's a man's job I think it is, "she added.
"I thought I made a real dent by doing a show and proving to people that you could be a woman and host a late night show, but you need to remind people again. There seems to be. "She continued. "And I might be that person who reminds them."
In an episode on Tuesday, a constantly controversial handler, a high school in New Jerseyis open about abortion. He insisted not to introduce her to the Hall of Fame.
However, a Livingston public school official told the post that her claim was "wrong."
