On Monday, her infamous talk show continued with a Hot Topics panel featuring Carla Hall, Michael Yo, Jenny Mollen Biggs and Bevy Smith.

Wendy has been on an extended leave of absence since December of 2018, due to her battle with a shoulder injury and recent Grave’s Disease diagnosis. Some also speculate that she is licking her wounds from rumors of her husband, Kevin Hunter, having an alleged extramarital affair. However,  Nick Cannon shut down these rumors during his appearance guest hosting. He stated,

“I had a conversation with her and her whole family. She said she wanted to speak as a family unit; her, I talked to Kevin, little Kevin, they said they all good, the love and the passion is still there…she said she feels y’all love. She knows there is a lot of questions that haven’t been answered, but as someone who also deals with an autoimmune condition – I was diagnosed with lupus before – and when you go through these things, you never know. It’s day by day. One day you can be strong and the next day, you can’t even get out of bed. She sounded so strong, we was tearing up and everything.”

He continued:

“There can be negativity out there and she hears the things about people talking about her family unit and what’s going on, and she was like, ‘We don’t want to bring that negative energy when you’re trying to heal.’ And you need your family and friends in moments like this. “

Other A-listers have held down the purple chair during Wendy’s absence including: KeKe Palmer and Sherri Shepherd, and actor Michael Rapaport.
