After nearly two years of silent warring, Chelsea Handler and momager Kris Jenner have reached a peace settlement, In Touch can reveal — and the reconciliation will air on Chelsea’s E! spin-off, After Lately, this season!
“Kris and Chelsea wouldn’t speak,” an industry insider tells the new issue of In Touch of about the stars’ two-year feud. “Kris had had it with Chelsea’s digs about her family.” But Kris, 57, decided it was time that she and the unapologetic talk-show host, 38, hashed out things.
Mutual pal Heather McDonald, the author of My Inappropriate Life, played mediator in February and set up a taping for After Lately, during which both sides made amends. “Heather’s a close friend of the Kardashians and really wanted this feud to end,” the insider explains to In Touch, on newsstands now. “She's the one who went to each side and persuaded them to get on board; she set it all up.”
“The whole thing will be really funny,” the source details about the episode. “Heather tells Chelsea to come to her book party, but when she shows up, it's actually just Heather and the Kardashians, and Chelsea is forced to sit down with them as they confront her about all the mean things she’s said about them.”
For the past two years, Chelsea has said “mean things” about the family on her E! series After Lately and Chelsea Lately, but big egos aside, the insider tells In Touch that everyone had a really good time filming the reconciliation: “The fact that they were all on board to poke fun shows that both sides were ready to put the past behind them.”
