Chelsea Handler just did the MOST Chelsea Handler thing ever.
The former “Chelsea Lately” show host gave a rather risqué farewell to Ellen DeGeneres.
As you may know, Ellen’s daytime talk show is coming to an end on May 26th .
“The Ellen Show” has been on the air since 2003 and lasted for 19 seasons.

Her final season has been filled with celebrity guest appearances, laughs and tears.
A source recently revealed to Page Six on May 14, “Ellen’s been crying a lot. The whole few weeks leading up to the finale were very emotional.”
Ellen’s reportedly not having a massive celebration for the finale.
Another TV insider added, “She wanted to go out quietly. It was friends and family of the cast and crew in the audience.”
Ellen’s Famous Friends Send Her Hilarious Farewell Video Message
Well, since she decided to “go out quietly,” her famous friends decided to MAKE SOME NOISE for the talk-show host.
Handler in particular went all out for her farewell message.
The vodka enthusiast, along with David Spade and Kevin Hart, filmed a video for Ellen to make fun of her new “retired” life and also praise the comedian.
Hart joked that he bought a blanket for Ellen since she’ll be at home sitting on the couch.
“I got you a blanket. One of those ones you can put over your knees because you’re gonna be home, and people get cold when they sit on the couch. So, it’s just for you to lay over your knees and watch TV and eat soup,” he quipped.
The joke didn’t end there.

“So, what I did, is get you a lifetime supply of Campbell’s chicken noodle soup,” Hart said. “Who loves you? This guy.”
Spade appeared next in the video.
“We have a lot of laughs. We joke about you being rich. You’re not. But, the audience seems to believe it,” he deadpanned. “I am rich. Rich with friends. I have six. It’s not that rich, but, I appreciate you, and I think we’ve had great times here. And, I know you like to scare me.”

Handler rounds out the video.
She begins her farewell message fully clothed, but quickly strips down to show off her tatas.
“Ellen, congratulations on 19 years of doing you show. I would show you my breasts, but we’ve already seen them. So, I’ll just sit like this and tell you that I am so proud of you,” Handler said while topless. “You are a rockstar. You’ve made this work for 19 years, and that’s a long f**king time. So, go have fun, and you know what that means.”
During Ellen’s final shows, her wife, Portia de Rossi, and brother, Vance DeGeneres, were there to support her on-set during filming.
Despite the toxic workplace allegations in 2020 and the subsequent fallout, a source tells Page Six, Ellen decided to end her show after 19 seasons.
“Ellen, 100 percent, did it on her own terms. She went out the way she wanted to. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house on the last day.”
