Wendy Williams has not appeared on her talk show all season due to medical reasons. There are rumors that Sherri Shepherd has been asked to replace her next season if Williams is still out on medical leave.

Well, I guess word got back to the ailing talk show host because she created an Instagram and hinted that she is going to return to her show.

In the video shot on a Florida beach, she said, “I want to be all I can be and get back to New York and get on down for the Wendy Williams Show.”

With just a few months left until this season and her contract are over, she better hurry up and get better and get back to NY. Because I can’t see them renewing her contract with Shepherd getting the same ratings as Williams has been getting.

Wendy Williams hasn’t hosted a single episode of her daytime talk show this season, and according to what a source told People, she won’t be back before it ends in May.

“Wendy won’t be returning to the show for the rest of this season. Her healing is going slower than everyone had hoped. She continues to deal with a number of medical issues, including Graves’ disease, and she and her team are taking it one day at a time,” the source says.

“But reports of a stroke, drugs or addiction issues or a dementia diagnosis are all false. Whether Wendy can return in the fall will depend on how her healing goes over the summer. Her health is the most important thing,” the source adds.

The magazine posted this information after TMZ reported that producers are about to sign Sherri Shepherd, who has successfully filled in several times, as a permanent replacement for the show’s 15th season. However, it will most likely get a new name as it should.

TMZ says that the door is still open for Williams to return to her job if she is healthy enough in September. But, I think that is just talk because Williams’ contracts end in May.

They probably can’t make it official until her contract ends because she is on medical leave and can sue them for firing her when she is sick with many ailments, including Grave’s Disease.

Is the news a surprise? Nope. What would you expect any employer to do if the face of their company was out for six months and counting with no return date? At some point, everyone has to move on.


At this point, we should just assume that Wendy Williams is not coming back

Wendy Williams was supposed to do her show in September, but she said she was suffering from undisclosed health issues. Now, five months later, she is still nowhere in sight.

The producers have been using guest hosts, and today, they announced who will be sitting in the purple chair for the month of February. Michael Rappaport starts it off, followed by Fat Joe and Remy Ma, then Bevy Smith and Terrence J, and for the final week, Sherri Shepherd is back.

With this announcement, it means that Williams will have missed over half the season. And with just March, April, May, and June left for this season, is there any reason for her to come back at all? I say, just give the job to Rappaport and Shepherd, and call it a day.

The Nick Cannon Show and The Wendy Williams Show, without Williams, were expected to return to production on January 3rd. However, due to the rising cases of COVID-19, they will be back on January 10th.

Personally, I think they won’t return with live episodes until at least February because I expect to see a jump in cases due to Christmas and New Year’s Eve gatherings. It will be just like last year. Hopefully, it won’t be, but it will be.

I also expect all of the other live talk shows to do the same.

Get the vaccine, wear a mask, wash your hands, and social distance.


Michael Rapaport fills in for Sherri Shepherd who’s filling in for Wendy Williams

Sherri Shepard was supposed to fill in Wendy Willams this week and next, but Michael Rapaport was sitting on the purple throne today.

So what happened? Shepherd went in for emergency surgery yesterday for am appendicitis. She is resting and will hopefully be back doing the show later this week.

When it comes to Williams, she will not be back until at least February.

UPDATE: Sherri Shepherd shot a video from her Bellvue Hospital bed, and she wanted us to know that she will be back hosting the show tomorrow.

This is just another reason why they will be offering her the show full-time in the Fall.
