Could this be the end of "Chelsea Lately"? E!'s late-night host, Chelsea Handler, is reportedly ready to move on when her contract expires in December, which would bring her eight-year run on the network to a close.

The Hollywood Reporter  broke the story, with Handler's manager telling the magazine,  "Chelsea intends to leave when her contract expires. She hired me to figure out her life after E! We have at least seven suitors and many ideas."

Most entertainment writers weren't surprised, noting Handler has been dropping hints about leaving for a while now.

While making the media rounds earlier this month to promote her book, Handler told  USA Today  that while she loves her job,  "I don't know if I want to be talking about Justin Bieber when I'm 40."

Too subtle for you? Try this one.

"They don't know what they're doing, they have no ideas. Everything they do is just a failure. ... E!'s just become a sad, sad place to live. And that's where I live, and I might need to get a new house."  (Via  Sirius Satellite Radio / "The Howard Stern Show" )

Yep, calling E! a failure and a sad place to live sounds pretty unmistakable.

But  Deadline Hollywood  raised the possibility it all might be a ruse.  "Theoretically, that could be posturing, which is part of any renegotiation where the stakes are this high," the online magazine reported.

However a  Cinema Blend  writer thinks Handler really is heading for the exit, saying,  "Handler has found pretty major success in her late night slot, but in recent years her ratings have been slipping a little bit. At the same time, she has nabbed gigs on other television programs and in films. ... It makes sense that she might want to head away from E! and sign on for a new project."

Plus, are we the only ones who think she's looked kind of, well, bored lately? (Via  E! / "Chelsea Lately" )

So where will she end up? So far the only clues are that she's interested in radio or maybe a new talk show on a new network. Not much to go on.

  • For two years, Mitch Comer’s mother and stepfather, Sheila Comer and Paul Comer, kept him locked inside a bedroom in his family’s rental home in Georgia. He was shut off from the outside world and even his two younger sisters until September 2012. By then, Comer, who was 18 at the time, was loaded on a bus and sent to Los Angeles with some cash and pamphlets from a homeless shelter. He was spotted by a former security guard, st the Los Angeles bus station, who called police. When he was returned to Georgia, Comer was severely malnourished with translucent skin — evidence of his ordeal. The story made national headlines. >> Read more trending news Nearly five years after his mother and stepfather were sentenced to 15 years in prison as part of a plea deal, the two could be up for parole, according to the Paulding County District Attorney. In his first public interview since his ordeal, Comer said Thursday he doesn’t want that to happen. “I don’t think that’s right,” he said. “I don’t like it at all.” Mitch Comer, who now goes by Mitt, said Paul and Sheila Comer should serve more prison time, and DA Dick Donovan agrees. “Letting them out after just five years just doesn’t … it offends me as a prosecutor and I’m sure it would offend the people of Paulding County if they knew about it,” Donovan said. Despite the two years of his life that was taken from him, Comer has flourished, completing high school and now studying at Kennesaw State University. His passion is electronics, and one day, he’d like to be inventor. Until then, he’s like any other college student, he says. He’s managed to put his abuse behind him. “A long time ago, I heard about a dude that was left in a closet and he came out happy, and I said I’m going to be that dude, too,” Comer said.
  • A Texas woman is recovering after a life-threatening ordeal in the Arizona desert. Texas college student Amber VanHecke, 24, ran out of gas on a sightseeing trip to the southern rim of the Grand Canyon on March 12. >> Read more trending news She was traveling by herself and told ABC News that she made a wrong turn based on directions from her GPS. She ended up in the middle of nowhere and making matters worse she couldn’t get cellphone reception.  But she was prepared because she had traveled alone before. 'I planned out my itinerary, had it posted on Facebook and stuff and off I went with some non-perishables and water,' ABC News reported. As one day turned into two, she started writing messages on notebook paper and created a “help” sign out of rocks. It wasn’t until the fourth day that she decided to start walking to try and get a signal for her cellphone. She managed to talk to a 911 operator briefly before she lost the call, but it was long enough.  An air rescue crew from the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office was sent to look her. The crew found her car and a note she had left explaining that she had started walking east, media outlets reported. They also spotted her “help” sign from the air. They eventually located her based on all the clues she left behind. The Arizona Department of Public Safety said in a statement Wednesday on its website that VanHecke had run out of food and was almost out of water when she was found on March 17, five days after her ordeal began. 'When she left the vehicle, she left notes so we knew where to find her. She did everything right,' trooper paramedic Eddie Bissonette said. 'She was treated at the scene for exposure, placed in the helicopter, and transported to the trauma center in Flagstaff,' according to the statement. VanHecke managed to stay positive about the harrowing experience, posting about her ordeal on Facebook. “I must be Irish because the luck was definitely with me today to get found.”   
  • It’s hard to be a parent when your child gets arrested. And not everyone takes it well. But one mother showed gratitude to police who arrested her daughter in Florida while she was on spring break. >> Read more trending news The Walton County Sheriff’s Office posted the text of a letter it received last week on its Facebook page. In the note, a mother thanks the department for arresting her 19-year-old daughter for underage drinking. “Yesterday, my daughter was one of the thousands of spoiled spring breakers ‘living it up’ on the beach,” she wrote. “She got arrested for underage drinking. She was holding a can of beer on the beach. A stupid move that I warned her about before she left, but I’m just her mother, so ‘in one ear and out the other.’” She said the arrest taught her daughter a lesson, and she thanked the officers for their professionalism. “The arrest scared the hell out of her, and I’m hoping she learned her lesson. The reason that I am sending this is that every officer that I talked to or that I could hear in the background talking to her was so nice! Firm, but nice,” the mother wrote. “For a mom hundreds of miles away, that was very reassuring. I know you all have to deal with this on a daily basis, which must be completely annoying, and I'm very sorry my daughter added to your workload yesterday. They say you always have one child that makes you go grey early and she is mine! Thank you for saving me a few more grey hairs last night.” The post has been liked more than 3,000 times.
  • Here's a roundup of news trending across the nation and world today. What to know now: 1. Health care vote: President Donald Trump decided the time for talking was over, according to the White House, when he let GOP leaders in the House know late Thursday that he wanted an up or down vote on a new health care package to take place on Friday. After a day of wrangling for votes, Trump said he was done working deals with those who said they would not support the legislation aimed at repealing and replacing most of the Affordable Care Act. 2. Cancer triggers: Scientists say that normal healthy cells in the body that make a “typo” when they multiply play a large role in who develops cancer. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University reported Thursday that about two-thirds of the mutations that are seen in cancers are random errors in the multiplication of cells. The scientists were quick to stress that while these “mistakes” are linked to the disease, many cancers are a result of risky behavior such as smoking, lack of exercise and a bad diet, and those can be prevented. 3. New iPad on sale: If you’ve had your eye on an iPad, today is the day you can place your order for Apple’s newest version of the tablet. Plus, there’s a bonus – it’s cheaper than recent iPads. The new 9.7-inch screen version, which was unveiled earlier this week, starts at $329 and has up to 10 hours of battery life. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the 12-inch iPad Pro, but then it doesn’t cost $799 either. 4. CIA hack of iPhone, Mac: A release of documents from WikiLeaks suggest the CIA has a program that can be used to hack into iPhones and Mac computers. The technique, according to cyber security experts, is one that involves an older model of the devices, and generally requires some physical access. 'The most notable part of this latest WikiLeaks release is that it shows the CIA doing exactly what we pay them to — exploit specific targets with limited attacks to support our national interests,' Rich Mogull, CEO of the security research firm Securosis, told The Associated Press.  5. London terror attack: The man who stabbed and ran over people in a terror attack in London this week was British-born and known to law enforcement authorities, according to officials in the United Kingdom. Khalid Masood, 52, was born Adrian Russel Ajao. He was a Muslim convert, according to some news reports, and was known to security services as 'a peripheral figure, … not part of the current intelligence picture.” And one more Disney head Bob Iger says the next movie in the “Star Wars” franchise, “The Last Jedi,” will not be changed in light of the death of actress Carrie Fisher. 'We had to deal with tragedy at the end of 2016. Carrie appears throughout VIII (“The Last Jedi”). We are not changing VIII to deal with her passing. Iger said fans could see “another decade-and-a-half of “Star Wars” stories” come to the big screen. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is available on Google Play, as of Friday. It is priced at $19.99. The movie will be available on Blu-ray on April 4. In case you missed it
