Three Cast Members Fired From Chelsea Handler's New Sitcom

Chelsea HandlerIt's not a great start to the Fourth of July for several cast members of Chelsea Handler's new NBC sitcom, 'Are You There, Vodka? It's Me Chelsea' as they've been fired.

According to TVLine.com the comedy is being radically retooled, which has involved pink slips being handed out to nearly half of the ensemble cast, including Natalie Morales ('White Collar'), Angel Laketa Moore ('ER') and Jo Koy ('Chelsea Lately').

A spokesperson for the show confirmed that the three are leaving "for creative reasons," and that their characters are currently being reconceived.

Handler is acting as both executive producer and co-star of the new comedy, which is slated to premiere at midseason. Based on her 2008 bestselling collection of humorous autobiographical essays, it stars Laura Prepon (who's keeping her job) as Chelsea, Handler as her own sister, and possibly -- talks are ongoing -- Roseanne Barr as their aunt.

Morales was set to play Chelsea's best friend, with Moore and Koy co-starring as her sports bar co-workers.

Her talk show is about the most unfunny thing I have ever watched and someone thought it would be a good idea to give her a sitcom?

I agree but sitcoms are pretty much garbage anyway so it's fitting.

You are in the minority Chelsea's 18=34 audience has gone through the roof. I think you need a funny bone tune up

Chelsea has talent, but not good taste. Give up the foul mouth and give us some real entertainment.

My guess is that Chelsea has a real good taste - if you know what I mean...

"According to TVLine.com the comedy is being radically retooled." So, new tools are being added to the lineup?
