As everybody knows, Chelsea Handler will soon premiere a new show on Netflix. She chose to make the jump to live streaming rather than stay with the E! network, but did you know how much money she gave up by doing so? Well she revealed it among other things while speaking at Forbes Magazine’s third annual Women’s Summit.
“I could have gotten paid $10 million a year for the next five years, ” Handler boasted. “But I want to do a show that is as smart as me, I want to take chances and set an example.”
About the people at Netflix, she said, “I think they’re progressive and I think they’re smart. I always want to be surrounded by people smarter than me.”
On her body size, “I didn’t want to be that skinny. I like bagels, I’m a Jew.”
