By Gina DiFalco,

Chelsea Handler addressed rumors about moving on to one of the major networks for a late night television show after she ends her stint on E!’s Chelsea Lately while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

During Thursday’s episode, Handler denied the rumors, saying she has too dirty of a mouth to join a major network.

"I would never go to CBS. I'm not … my mouth … what would they do with me there?" she said, the Daily News reports. "I mean, no I would never be on a regular network. I would never do that to my fans or to myself or to the network,"

Handler sparked rumors about joining CBS with an Instagram photo of herself in what appeared to be CBS’ offices. Holding a book with the network’s logo visible, she wrote “Business meeting. Chunk has been acting like this since I started my tour.” She was referring to her dog, who’s seen sitting on her lap.

CBS later denied that Handler was there to meet about a new late-night gig at the eye network.

Handler will leave her show when her contract ends this year.

“I'm a bad girl. Who wants to reel me in? I mean I wouldn't want to reel me in. That wouldn't be fun for anyone,” said Handler.
