The acid-tongue comedian wants to move to daytime television – and sources tell say she’s plotting to steal Ellen DeGeneres’ job!
“Chelsea has been sniping that at 60, Ellen needs to make way for some new talent. She isn’t saying it to her face, but she’s bragging to her friends that she could easily be the next Ellen,” an insider reveals.
“Chelsea is in very high demand for all the daytime shows right now and is seen as somebody who could instantly go head to head with the biggest names in daytime talk.”
“Chelsea is ready to get back to work and she has no problem stepping on people’s toes to get what she wants.”
As fans know, Handler, 42, has been notorious in Hollywood for backstabbing her Tinseltown pals.
The blonde funnygal burned a serious bridge with Aniston, 49, destroying their years-long friendship and getting shunned from their circle of celebrity pals.
“Jen’s friends are all staunchly loyal,” which means Aniston’s closest confidants, including Courteney Cox, Jason Bateman, Jen Meyer, Molly Sims, Ellen DeGeneres and others, revealed an insider, “are not interested in hanging with Chelsea.”
Aniston ended her years-long friendship with Handler after she discovered she was spilling secrets about her now failed marriage to Justin Theroux, who she called it quits with on February 15, 2018.
But Handler’s sinister ways continue to work in her favor.
“The View co-hosts are also courting her, but she’s after her own show,” says the source.
“The only thing standing in Chelsea’s way is that execs tend to find her very abrasive, but that doesn’t worry her. She’s used to getting her way.”
