Chelsea Handler revealed the real reason she's leaving Chelsea Lately behind (opens in new tab): She's sick of celebrities. In an interview with Daily Mail (opens in new tab), Handler explained that she'd much rather talk to people who can educate her.

"To be quite honest, I don't really care about Justin Bieber and I don't want to talk about him anymore," she said. "In order to make that happen I had to just stop doing my show. Straight away."

She continued, "You can sit around and complain about all that shit 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."

Handler (opens in new tab) is leaving E! in August and is expected to announce her upcoming TV plans in two weeks. She described her new project as a "bit more mindful and a little bit more interesting for me and my viewers."
