What do we think of Chelsea Handler?

I watch Chelsea Lately almost every night and enjoy the snarky, sarcastic humor and most of the roundtable panel. I don't usually watch the guest interview because it's usually someone I've never heard of and don't care about. And I love that she's so gay-positive and features comedians of all genders, orientations, body sizes, etc. But lately the show has taken a strange turn. Where once Chelsea would tear the Kardashians to shreds, she seems to have been forced to make peace with them. A few weeks ago they commandeered an entire episode of the show and they're appearing in the sketches and on After Lately. Would Letterman or Leno allow their networks to force them to turn over their shows for an evening to someone they hate? Highly unlikely. It also seems like the more celebrity friends Chelsea aquires the less she uses them as fodder for jokes. The Reese Witherspoon thing a few weeks ago was RIPE for a Chelsea-style takedown. But because they're friends she avoided the topic. Same with Gwyneth Paltrow. Chelsea should be all over her but instead she kisses her ass. I'm less keen to watch the show now.
