Chelsea Handler Heading to CBS? See Her Not-So-Subtle Instagram Hint (VIDEO)

Chelsea Lately may be shutting down soon, but Chelsea Handler lives on! The audacious late-night host will be leaving E! when her contract expires at the end of the year, and now it seems like she might be headed to CBS.

Just check out this Instagram photo the 39-year-old posted on April 14. "Business meeting," she writes. "Chunk has been acting like this since I started my tour."

Sorry, Chels, we're just not buying that you merely wanted to share your adorable pooch's latest antic.

Look at the way she's holding her packet upside-down so that it faces the camera — with the CBS "Eye" logo very prominently displayed. Uh-huh.

Earlier this month, Chelsea was rumored to be inheriting David Letterman's spot on Late Show when he retires next year, but the network gave the chair to Stephen Colbert.

The speculation now is that she'll get a show in the post-Late Show slot at 12:30 a.m., taking over for Craig Ferguson, whose Late Late Show is not earning stellar ratings.

If the CBS logo placement was intentional, it wouldn't be Cheslea's first bit of social media self-promotion. She courted controversy during the 2014 Oscars when she tweeted about her travelogue, Uganda Be Kidding Me, when 12 Years a Slave won.

Well, better a post that may be tacky than one accused of being racist, right?
