Wendy Williams Hiatus Continues As Guest Hosts Are Announced For New Season Next Year

It looks like we will still be waiting for Wendy Williams to return to her hit daytime talk show.

The Wendy Show announced on Instagram the return of show next year with the special guest hosts Remy Ma and Fat Joe, Michael Rappaport, Kym Whitley and Finesse Mitchell, and fan favorite Sherri Shepherd. The post stated:

The Wendy Williams Show’ Returns with All-New Episodes in the New Year!
@fatjoe & @remyma@michaelrapaport@kymwhitley & @finessemitchell and @sherrieshepherd are all set to guest host this January.

As previously reported, Williams was supposed to start the show’s 13th season on Sept. 20. However, producers have pushed back the legendary TV host’s return to her popular “purple chair” at least three times.

Her last official interaction with her fans was on November 8th saying

“As everyone knows, my health has been a hot topic. I’m making progress, but it’s just one of those things that’s taking longer than we expected.”

Claims about Williams including that she’s had to use a wheelchair and that she’s suffering from early-onset dementia was swirling around the world. However, according to Tommy Williams, the host’s younger brother, those claims were false.

“We haven’t had any alerts like that, and I haven’t seen anything like that or have had conversations with her that would lead me to believe that.”

Williams is said to be experiencing complications from the autoimmune disorder Graves’ disease. Additionally, the veteran talk show host reportedly experienced a breakthrough case of COVID-19, and also allegedly received a psychological evaluation at a New York hospital.
