Handler ‘scolded for Kardashian jokes’

Chelsea Handler doesn’t care if she offends reality TV brood the Kardashians with her jokes about them.

The 38-year-old host of late-night comedy talk show Chelsea Lately says she often gets scolded by E! network for making fun of the famous reality TV clan.

But Chelsea refuses to swear off making jokes about them.

“Do I really care if the network’s mad at me? Or the Kardashians? No, I don’t,” she laughed to Access Hollywood.

“They say, ‘Please don’t do it anymore,’ and I’m like, ‘[The Kardashians] are cool with it – I know them, they know me. And then I just kind of continue. I don’t really care.”

Although Keeping Up With the Kardashians also airs on E!, she doesn’t think her jokes are dramatic enough to start a serious feud.

Chelsea is happy with her programme and she sees herself presenting the hit show for a long time ahead.

“I’m not leaving the show. I can’t leave the show, who’s gonna do it? It’s called Chelsea Lately!” she quipped.

“I can’t, unless we find Chelsea Clinton and tell her that she has to do a show called Chelsea Lately, and then I take over her career, which is probably not gonna happen. But I do a lot of other things to keep myself sane, so that’s why I write books, go on tour.”

Chelsea will release her new book Uganda Be Killing Me in March.
