Forget the rumors, Chelsea Handler says, she is not going to host a late night show on CBS.

In fact, she told Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday, she would never consider taking her less-than-family-friendly humor to network television at all.

CBS announced last week that Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert would take over "The Late Show" when David Letterman retires in 2015, and rumors began circulating that Handler would take over for "The Late Late Show" host Craig Ferguson after she posted a photo of herself near a CBS logo on Instagram saying she was in a business meeting.

CBS immediately released a statement reading, "There are no discussions with Chelsea Handler regarding the network's 12:30 late night broadcast; her meeting with CBS yesterday was a general meeting with our syndication group."

Handler also tweeted that that she was not in talks for a show at CBS:



Handler has said she will be ending her current talk show "Chelsea Lately" on E! when her contract expires at the end of this year.

“I would never go to CBS," Holder told DeGeneres. "My mouth? What would they do with me there? I would never be on a regular network. I would never do that to my fans or to myself or to the network."

She also said she isn't interested in Colbert's old show because she doesn't want to do a show that someone else has already done.

"I'm a bad girl, and who wants to reel me — I mean, I wouldn't want to reel me in, that wouldn't be fun for anyone," she said.
