While the star of the post was probably meant to be her oversized lapdog, Chunk, sitting on top of her, Handler's public disapproval of her own network and reports that she might be replacing Craig Ferguson on the "Late Late Show" helped to spark curiousity.

But although Ferguson's contract does expire in June, and Lately has been vocal about wanting to leave E!, CBS shot down the idea.

"There are no discussions with Chelsea Handler regarding the network's 12:30 late night broadcast; her meeting with CBS yesterday was a general meeting with our syndication group," a spokesman for the network told the New York Post.
