The 39-year-old comedian
slammed E! and her former show Chelsea Lately
during the Code/Media conference in Dana Point, Calif., and gushed over her deal at Netflix.
"At E! I did what I wanted and I didn't listen to anybody because I didn't care what they had to say because I didn't respect their opinions," Handler said of the network that employed her for seven years (viaThe Hollywood Reporter
). "At Netflix, I do respect their opinions. It's like going out with a guy you're proud to be seen with."
