Chelsea Handler Trying To Steal Jimmy Fallon Tonight Show Job
Chelsea Handler is trying to steal Jimmy Fallon‘s “Tonight Show” job, claims a new report.
According to RadarOnline, Handler is “waiting in the wings” and “ready to swoop in to take over” as the host of “The Tonight Show.”
“Chelsea is rubbing her hands together with glee over Jimmy Fallon’s fall from grace.” Source claims Fallon’s “drunken antics are starting to cast a shadow over the show. Chelsea’s informed NBC she’s available to take over any time. She’s convinced it’s only a matter of time before the network starts preparing for a back-up plan should Jimmy fail to rein in his boozing.”
But, although CHELSEA would love the job, NBC remains committed to Fallon. In fact, in August, Fallon signed a new contract that will keep him on as host at least through 2021.
Handler has her own Netflix series that will begin streaming in 2016. Handler said over the summer that she had no interest in replacing David Letterman on “The Late Show,” – “I was not interested in going to a network. I was never interested in taking somebody else’s job.”
“If her Netflix show doesn’t work she would love to get back on TV,” a pal tells NAUGHTY GOSSIP. “And no show is bigger than The Tonight Show. Of course she wants Jimmy’s job. Everyone wants it.”
