Wendy Williams remains one of the most well-known talk show hosts in the history of the entertainment business. She is famous for speaking her mind and not mincing words when it comes to something Williams truly feels. It seems she isn’t coming back to her show anytime soon.
However, she is 57-years-old and father time can catch up to anyone no matter how hard one can try. As reported earlier, Wendy Williams was unable to promote Season 13 of her Wendy Williams Show due to unspecified health issues.
The issue turned out to be a COVID-19 diagnosis, which turned out to be true as she contracted the virus. Since then she has been absent from her show and because of that, the show has been paying audiences to attend the tapings during her absence.
According to ET Online, Williams will be taking the entirety of November off in order to recover from her illness. The show also announced on Wednesday that new guest hosts will fill in for Wendy Williams during her absence, which includes Michael Rapaport, Bill Bellamy and Jerry Springer.
Rapaport will be guest hosting the week of Nov. 8. The following week will start with an all-new hot talk panel on Monday, Nov. 15. Then, Bellamy will host on Tuesday, Nov. 16 and Wednesday, Nov. 17. Later that week, Springer and fellow daytime host Steve Wilkos will be filling in on Thursday, Nov. 18 and Friday, Nov. 19. Each episode will include a spin on Williams’ signature “Hot Topics” segment along with other surprises. We certainly hope Williams will be able to return next month.
