Wendy Williams to return to her daytime talk show for a month
Wendy Williams will continue to be absent from her daytime talk show for the remainder of November.
According to ET, the daytime diva still suffers from complications from her health issues and will need to continue to be absent from her The Wendy Williams Show to regain optimal health.
The show announced the list of guest hosts who will fill up for the rest of the month on Wednesday. Upcoming guest hosts will include Michael Rapaport, Bill Bellamy, Jerry Springer and Steve Wilkos.
âI’m very excited to be replacing Wendy and look forward to a great week of great shows,â Rapaport told ET of her upcoming guest host concert.
âI’ve always loved being a guest on my friend Wendy’s show! Bellamy shared. “I am delighted to have the opportunity to be here for her and look forward to working with her amazing team.”
Wendy is yet to make an appearance on Season 13 of her hit talk show. The season premiere was initially pushed back from September 20 to October 4 to give Williams time to recover from a groundbreaking case of COVID-19. It was then pushed back once again to October 18 as she continued to deal with health issues. Finally, it was announced that the show would go on without her as she tended to her health concerns, with various guest hosts acting on her behalf.
Wendy has been replaced by hostesses Leah Remini, Whitney Cummings and Sherri Shepherd so far in October.
Williams has been absent from social media and out of the public eye while recovering from her health issues due to her thyroid disorders and Graves’ disease. Her ex-husband Kevin Hunter also recently announced her engagement to her longtime alleged mistress Sharina Hunter amid Williams’ health crisis.
âWendy continues to be under medical surveillance and meets with her medical team on a daily basis,â the show posted on Instagram in its last update on Oct. 12. âShe is making progress but suffers from serious complications as a result of Graves. disease and its thyroid condition. It was determined that she would need more time before she could resume her live hosting duties. ”
“We want his health to be his top priority,” the statement continued. “As soon as she’s ready, she’ll be back in her precious purple chair.”
