Wendy Williams’ absence from her talk show to continue in November



How is she Make? Still not well, apparently.

As Wendy Williams continues to recover from health issues, her hiatus from her daytime talk show has been extended until November.

The “Wendy Williams Show” announced on Instagram Tuesday that comedian Whitney Cummings will be the guest host next week and former “The View” panelist Sherri Shepherd will be the guest host the first week of November.

Another remarked: “This is definitely Wendy’s last season.” Cummings, 39, tried to appease naysayers by writing, “No one can ever replace Wendy, but we’ll do what we can to replace her so she can come back stronger than ever.”

“She’s been going so hard for so long and even though I miss seeing her everyday just imagine how hilarious she is going to be after awhile to take care of herself and have a little time to think! ” added “2 Broke Girls” co-creator. “Feel free to send me any topics you want to discuss!” We all want to make Wendy proud. “

The “Wendy Williams Show” also sent out a press release on Tuesday which included a statement from Shepherd, 54, saying, “I’m so excited to be coming back to the Wendy Williams Show to host a full week!

“I had a great time hosting the show in 2019 and I’m flattered that Wendy and the producers trusted me to replace him again,” she continued. “I send him my love and best wishes.”

Executive Producer David Perler added, “We look forward to having these two talented and entertaining women in the ‘Wendy’ studio as guest hosts in the coming weeks. We can’t wait to see what they have in store for you. our viewers! “

Representatives declined to comment on Williams, 57’s current situation, and why his hiatus needed to be extended.

Last week, the host’s production company, Debmar-Mercury, cited lingering health issues as the reason for Williams’ absence.

“She is making progress, but suffers from serious complications as a direct result of Graves’ disease and her thyroid condition,” their statement said. “It was determined that it would take longer before she could resume her live hosting duties.”


Williams was originally scheduled to start her new season on September 20, but postponed it several times due to health complications, including testing positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19. She was then reportedly taken to hospital and for a mental health assessment.

Several sources recently told Page Six that the delay on Williams’ show is starting to become a huge problem for the station’s affiliates and advertisers.

“The Wendy Williams Show” has been on the air since July 2008.
