Chelsea Handler is totally over keeping up with the Kardashians. The late-night talk show host will be saying sayonara to her show on the E! network this August -- but it wasn't until recently that Handler shared why she had decided to ditch "Chelsea Lately."

"To be quite honest, I don't really care about Justin Bieber and I don't want to talk about him anymore," the comedian told the Daily Mail. "In order to make that happen I had to just stop doing my show. Straight away."

She also added: "You end up getting so into the mix that it changes the topics of the day. 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? It really didn't feel great doing the show and the only way to sort things out was to extricate myself from the entire situation."

What do you think of Chelsea Handler calling it quits? Do you think she's awesome for being so real about her departure? Or does she sound ungrateful?

    If you're bored with your job, quit. All power to you. (If you're rich and/or have other options of work....otherwise get a new job before you quit!)

    I think it's good for her career. I mean, if I was her, I would get sick and tired of talking about celebrities as well. The question is: what is she going to do now?

    She Doesn't Want to Talk About Celebrities Anymore and I don't care hearing about them.

    We're in perfect harmony.

    I don't blame her for not wanting to talk about mindless celebrities.



    I've never seen her but apparently she isn't that smart.

    Though awesome isn't quite the word I would use. Why stay and do a job you don't like. I think it is a good move for her. In all reality I never cared for her show or her type of humor, so it really doesn't effect or affect me if goes or not.

    Awesome. Big Headed Celebrities need to know the world does not revolve around them . Now if everyone would realize we are all humans, nothing more.
    Some put them high up on a pedestal for being on a TV set ,movie or sing etc. or just make a lot of money for entertaining or in some cases irritating people. :)

    It may be possible when her contract came up for renewal, She wanted way more money than they were willing to pay,I wouldn't be surprised if she demanded a million dollars an episode. Talk show host can get really greedy on what they want to get paid. I never liked her show.

    Chelsea hhas always been pretty honest, and obviously doesn't care about a safety net. I think she does a GREAT job in most of her inetrviews. Sometimes the comedian table part falls short, but I pretty much liked the show. She probably figures she has enough money from her books, and stand up, and just wants out..plus, I'm sure she could easily get another late nite show

    I picked my answer because SH won't allow a comment without one! It would be hard for me to choose any answer because I have never even seen or heard of Ms. Handler before reading this question.

    As far as talking about celebrities, only little people talk about other people. Chelsea Handler is far above that.

    While I wouldn't like her to enter politics, since she and I are not for the same things, I applaud anyone that will stop covering celebrity news instead things that are seriously affecting this country. I wish her well and marvel how she didn't ever just punch someone over the crap that they say.

    Talking smack about her fellow human beings got her where she is today and she could have handled this with more grace. Doesn't matter in the end.

    She's grandstanding. She's popular enough that she could have just changed the tone of her show.

    You mean she wants to be more than a basic-cable version of insipid People magazine celeblicity?
    Good for her.

    Chelsea Handler would be awesome in a burlap bag! If I were about 30 years younger I'd be her head groupie! She's a very talented, very humorous young lady. Hope we see her soon again.
