Wendy Williams was diagnosed with underlying health issues earlier this year. According to a source, the television personality needed assistance getting out of bed, dressing, and eating on some days. As a result, Williams did not return to her popular show, The Wendy Williams Show. Williams replacement, Sherri Shepherd, has now commented on Wendy’s unwillingness to watch her show.
Comedian Sherri Shepherd took over for her in February. Wendy’s show was cancelled in June, just weeks after she began hosting, and The Sherri Shepherd Show debuted in its place. It was reported that executives had wanted to end Wendy’s show for years because she had become “unbearable”— all they needed was a suitable replacement.
Wendy addressed the cancellation of her show during an interview with Fat Joe yesterday. She expressed regret for missing the show, but assured viewers that she would return. When asked if she would start something new or return to her previous platform, the 57-year-old said, “I’m coming back to The Wendy Williams Show. Absolutely. Absolutely.”
She also addressed Shepherd taking her place stating that she won’t be watching her. Shepherd took to Instagram live after seeing the interview and expressed her feelings. She went on to say that she doesn’t have time for negativity and that she would be praying for Wendy.
She’s not well. It’s just a lot going on in Wendy’s life.
Sherri appeared as a guest on Wendy’s show in 2021, when the TV star was unable to work due to health issues. The View alum admitted that the 57-year-old star is responsible for much of her recent success. Both videos are embedded below.
