Daily News Ups Its Chances for a Chelsea Handler Exclusive

FifthEstateCent is about to enter the Confidenti@l house

Anything less than a scoop about the former E! talk show host in Wednesday’s print editions will be, in our eyes, a disappointment.

In case you had not yet heard, rapper 50 Cent will be taking over the New York Daily News’ gossip section Tuesday, attending an editorial meeting, picking and helping write the next day’s dish as well as answering reader questions via a 10.30 a.m. ET Live Chat. From our sister publication Billboard:

“He’s coming to work, and he’s going to be the man in charge,” Raakhee Mirchandani, managing editor of features, told Billboard. Maybe some of 50’s famous friends will be along for the ride too: “We’re hoping for a little Chelsea Handler Skype or email action.”

Here are some possible topics to help FifthEstateCent get that action rolling: Handler’s recently reported “smell of desperation;” being replaced on E! by a YouTube star; and Comedy Central following in her trusty format footsteps.
