Wendy Williams has not done her show since the season started in September due to her thyroid condition, and today we found out that she will not be back for all of January.

The Wendy Willams Show announced who will be sitting on her purple throne next month. Fat Joe and Remy Ma start it off, followed by Michael Rapaport for the second week, then Kym Whitley and Finesse Mitchell for the third, and finally Sherri Shepherd to close out the month.

At this point, I don’t think they are going to renew Williams’ contract that is up in 2022. I mean, she has missed more of the season than she could do. And that is saying if, which I doubt she will, returns in February. My gut says she won’t be back at all. What do you think?


It’s official, Wendy Williams will not host her show until 2022

The Wendy Williams Show announced today that Sherri Shepherd will guest host the show again from December 13th-17th. After the 17th, the talk show will go on hiatus for the rest of 2021.

That means that an ailing Wendy Williams has not hosted her show in the latter half of this year.

If Shepherd gets good ratings again, I have a feeling they will be offering her the job to start in the Fall. Williams’s contract is up this Spring, and I can’t see them giving her a new one. I mean, she is absent from the show more than she is present. In the non-television world, she would have been replaced by now and put on medical leave.

I mean, let’s say she returns in January; she will have missed almost four months of work because of her undisclosed illness.

I want her to get better. But, it is not fair to other people who lose their jobs because of medical issues like cancer and can’t afford the medical bills.


Leah Remini will guest host The Wendy Williams Show for two weeks

Wendy Williams hasn’t hosted her show all season due to health issues stemming from her Grave’s Disease, so they have had guest hosts fill in for her. Leah Remini was the first one to do it, and she will be back to sit on the purple throne again for two weeks starting on November 29th with her friend Michelle Visage.

At this rate, it looks like Williams will not be back until at least 2022.

And that might be the last year she hosts her show. Sadly for her, the ratings have been good with the guest hosts. So, I wonder if Debmar-Mercury is considering replacing her permanently with one of the guest hosts in September. Would you blame them if they did? I wouldn’t. I mean, she has taken several leaves over the last few years, so I am sure they want a host they can depend on that will show up for work.


Wendy Williams gives an update on her health

Ever since we found out that Wendy Williams was suffering from health-related issues in September, she has been radio silent. Today, the host broke her silence, and she has a message for her fans.

HOW YOU DOIN’? I MISS YOU ALL! As everyone knows, my health has been a hot topic. I’m making progress but it’s just one of those things that’s taking longer than we expected. I’m a woman of a certain age, and I know enough to listen to my doctors and will return to my purple chair as soon as we all agree I’m ready. I want to thank all of my staff and our guest hosts for stepping up and stepping in while I can’t be there. I also want to thank Debmar-Mercury and our stations for being so understanding and supportive while I work my way back. Most of all, I want to thank my fans. I have heard your prayers and comments and feel all the love! You are everything to me. I love spending my mornings with you all and I’m doing everything I can to get back to work, but right now Wendy has to focus on Wendy. I love you for watching.

I think this is the 57-year-old’s way of saying I won’t be back until at least January, if then. So expect to see guest hosts from now until the end of the year. And maybe a new host in September.

Unfortunately, the show is still doing well in the ratings even though she is not hosting. That could spell trouble for her.


The Wendy Williams Show announces the next round of guest hosts

Wendy Williams has been struggling with health issues since September. Because of that, she has not been able to host her show this season. Since the show must go on, they have been using guests hosts to fill in for her.

Today, they announced who will be hosting the show for the next two weeks. Michael Rapaport starts things off on Monday and will be there for the whole week. Then the following Monday, Bill Bellamy takes over until that Wednesday. For the last two days of the week, Jerry Springer and Steve Wilkos will share the purple throne. I am looking forward to the latter.

When it comes to Williams, I doubt she will be back before the New Year. It will be interesting to see if she will even be back in January.
