 When asked if she would be open to the idea of hosting The Daily Show, Handler said, ‘Potentially. I mean, it’s definitely on the table. I’m open to all sorts of conversations.’

She continued to talk about going back on tour, stating, ‘I’m going to go back on the road. After the special has come out, I’m going to take a couple of months off, but I’m going to announce a new tour very soon. I’ve fallen back in love with doing standup; it’s my favorite.’

The New Jersey-bred star wore her bright blonde locks in a center part and voluminous waves. Her lustrous hair fell over her shoulders and a pair of delicate hoop earrings were visible just beneath it.

She also wore two thin necklaces and fastened a belt around her waistline as she made her way out of the rain.

Handler’s face was fully made up, with distinctive black mascara drawing attention to her blue eyes and lip gloss to her pout.

Last month, while chatting with Brooke Shields on her podcast Now What?, Chelsea dished on her personal life.

She revealed she hasn’t spoken to ex-boyfriend Jo Koy since their split in summer 2022 after months of dating.

The Life Will Be the Death of Me author admitted the two are no longer friends and she doesn’t think they can be until Koy takes ‘accountability’ for behavior that contributed to their split.

‘I mean, there has to be some accountability, you know what I mean? Like, from him about what happened, because it was just ridiculous,’ she told Shields.
