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.
