Chelsea Handler is clearing the air regarding rumors she may be heading to CBS.
“I would never go to CBS. I’m not … my mouth … what would they do with me there?” the comedian told Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance airing on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday.
Rumors of the “Chelsea Lately” host possibly moving to CBS first flew when she posted an Instagram photo of herself with her dog on her lap and a stack of papers with the network’s logo clearly visible.
“Business meeting,” she captioned the pic.
“And yet what’s getting the attention is your holding something that looks like a CBS logo, which gave everyone the impression that you’re talking to CBS about doing a show,” Ellen pressed.
“I mean, no, I would never be on a regular network,” Chelsea, whose contract with E! is finished at the end of 2014, replied. “I would never do that to my fans or to myself or to the network.”
