Pink slips were handed out on one of your favorite daytime talk shows. “The Wendy Williams Show” has fired several producers in the wake of its host’s blundering remarks about the NAACP, according to a new report. Reportedly, longtime producer Jason Gabel and at least two other senior staff members were let go.
A source claims, “The crew had a big party celebrating what they considered a season well done,” we’re told, and “the next day [some of them] got calls saying they’d been let go.”
Execs want to revise the show, adding more current- affairs coverage and pop culture.
As you know, last month, the ‘Say It Like You Mean It‘ host caught hell, after making comments about the NAACP and historically black colleges. She later apologized for her comments and had a transparent conversation with TV host Roland Martin about the issue. [Page Six]
