Chelsea Handler bored of celebrities

Chelsea Handler quit her talk show because she is tired of celebrities.

The 39-year-old comic - who announced earlier this year she is bowing out from her E! Show 'Chelsea Lately' - "didn't feel great" about the program anymore because she was sick of having to talk about the Kardashian family and other stars in the public eye.

She said: "I think if you participate in the celebrity world then you don't really have a choice but to be involved in the drama.

"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."

Chelsea admitted she doesn't "really care" about guests such as Justin Bieber so realized quitting the show was the only way to be able to stop talking about other celebrities.

She added in an interview with MailOnline: "To be quite honest I don't really care about Justin Bieber and I don't want to talk about him anymore. In order to make that happen I had to just stop doing my show. Straight away."

'Chelsea Lately' will come to an end in August and the presenter is looking forward to talking to people who will "educate" her in her as-yet-unannounced next venture.

She said: "I'm going to do a show. It will be a refresh situation, a little bit more mindful and a little bit more interesting for me and my viewers.

"Now I want to do things differently. I want to talk to people who are going to educate me. Politicians, medical professionals and people with real human interest stories.

"I want to talk to people who have changed the course of the world. Inventors, invaders and people who have been doing exciting stuff."
