Wendy Williams Announces More Guests Hosts During Extended Leave
Wendy Williams, a key component to The Wendy Williams Show, has been on hiatus since the holidays. The controversial talk show host won’t be coming back anytime soon from what it seems, but as the saying goes, the show must go on. After previously announcing that Nick Cannon will be taking over the show for the first half of next week, they’ve also announced several other guests hosts who’ll hold down Wendy’s duties over the next few weeks.
The Wendy Williams’ show has also announced new guests hosts who will be filling in for Wendy after Nick Cannon holds it down from Feb. 4th to 6th, PageSix reports. Orange Is The New Black actor Jason Biggs will fill-in on Feb. 7th and Keke Palmer will close out the week on Feb. 8th.
The following week, The View’s Sherri Shepherd will take on Wendy’s job for the 11th to 12th before Michael Rapaport, who might even have hotter takes than Wendy, holds it down on the 13th. Jerry O’Connell to round out the week on the 14th and 15th.
Earlier this month, The Hunter family shared a message on behalf of Wendy Williams in regards to her medical leave. “Over the past few days, Wendy has experienced complications regarding her Graves’ Disease that will require treatment,” it read.
“Wendy will be under the strict supervision of her physicians, and as part of her care, there will be significant time spent in the hospital. Despite her strong desire to return, she is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being.”
