Wendy Williams’ talk show has been in limbo for weeks. There have been a series of guest hosts, which have included Don Lemon, Nick Cannon, Rickey Smiley and, most recently, Sherri Shepherd. However, a new report claims the guest hosts will stop next week and the show will go into reruns.
Radar Online reports the chat fest will begin airing reruns as early as next week. She allegedly has not spoken to her staff and they are “concerned for the future of their jobs.” There is no date for when she will return.
Over the past few months, Wendy reportedly injured her arm, been having ongoing thyroid issues and there are allegations that a divorce was on the horizon.
Back in December, Love B. Scott exclusively reported that although the chat fest was renewed through 2020, the future of the show beyond that season was allegedly uncertain. There are “concerns over Wendy’s health are clouding chances for any further renewal.”
In addition, the site said it received a cease and desist letter from Wendy’s lawyers, asking to remove the story that her husband had another woman pregnant and she was filing for divorce. The letter stated, “Mrs. Wendy Williams-Hunter and Mr. Kevin Hunter categorically deny each and every allegation made by your ‘sources’, even if not specifically enumerated herein.”
The letter was a bizarre twist considering the daytime TV diva has made a career out of talking about other people.
Love B. Scott also claims she is struggling with self-medicating herself. Radar Online claims Wendy can “barely stand at times” and her friends say there’s a “major problem.” Wendy did say to her fans that on Instagram, “I did that to power through and try to deliver a great show for you, against the better judgment of the many people around me who genuinely care for my well-being. I really do ride or die for my craft and give 200%.”
She added, “Not to mention everyone is aware at this point about my thyroid condition (don’t cry for me Argentina). For all my fellow thyroid sufferers, you know what the deal is… Needless to say… I have no regrets and I appreciate everyone’s genuine concern for my wellness and care. I promise you a better Wendy in 2019.”
