Her latenight talk show, “Chelsea Lately,” expires next year. “I have many more things I want to achieve – in addition to my nightly show, of course. I’ve known Irving for a while – actually, since he auditioned for Chuy’s job. I know he’s primarily a music manager, so just to soop the rumors before they start – I won’t be dropping an album.”

Chuy Bravo is Handler’s assistant on “Chelsea Lately.”

Azoff said Handler can be a “total bitch” but said he’s dealt with a lot of them.

“Chelsea is damn good at what she does and has an undeniably strong brand,” Azoff said. “She and the guys have exciting ideas for the future of her career and production company. My goal is to assist them in facilitating and realizing their vision.”
