Wendy Williams NOT Returning to Show this Season, Sherri Shepherd to REPLACE HER!
Written by torresanz on February 9, 2022
Wendy Williams‘ health problems may spell the end of her reign on daytime TV, according to a new report.
Variety reports that the media maven will not be returning to her own show this season.
As reported, Williams’ comeback has been delayed several times while she’s battled health issues.
Now, sources are saying that guest anchor Sherri Shepherd is being lined up as a permanent host of the daytime talker for the rest of the current 13th season. This would be in place of the revolving door of names that have stepped in to fill Williams’ vacant purple chair.
What’s more, TV veteran Shepperd is said to be in “advanced talks” with the production company about fronting her own show.
Here’s where it gets…well…juicy.
Producers are said to be welcoming of a possible Williams return and, as of writing Shepherd’s proposed show would be its own entity – not a permanent replacement for the current Wendy series.
Yet, at the same time, should Shepherd’s show be greenlit and Williams not return, it’s believed the new show will air in the current timeslot. So, take from that what you will.
