Chelsea Handler is planning on quitting her US talk show on the E! network when her contract expires in nine months, according to her manager Irving Azoff.

Chelsea Handler will quit her US talk show when her contract expires.

The 39-year-old star has hosted 'Chelsea Lately' for the past eight years, where she has an average viewership of 572,000 a night, but intends to leave the programme in nine months time and has a number of offers for work coming in from elsewhere.

The host's manager Irving Azoff told The Hollywood Reporter: ''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.''

Chelsea - who is believed to make around $9 million a year from the show - has previously voiced her concerns about the E! network and described it as ''a sad, sad place to live.''

Before adding: ''They don't know what they're doing. They have no ideas. It's a failure.''

A source at one company on the list to meet with her believes those remarks may affect her chance of getting work in the future.

The source said: ''When you see talent go after a network like that, you think one day it could be me.''

E! have refused to comment on the blonde beauty's future.
