She has hoped for it.  And now the long expected move for comic Chelsea Handler is confirmed. 

The hilarious host of E's "Chelsea Lately" for the last 7 years has confirmed that she will join Netflix.  The rules will change now, won't they?  Chelsea will begin with a stand up comedy special in October, followed by more stand up specials and documentary-style comedies.  All leading up to a new talk show with a fresh new format in 2016.

No word if her sidekick Chewy will make the trip over to Netflix with the award-winning star, but you can guess it's a whole new world of heckling ahead for Chelsea!
