Wendy Williams gagged with disdain although seeing the not-so-grand finale of her very long-functioning daytime discuss clearly show.
“There was nothing I preferred about the [the final episode of] ‘Wendy Williams Demonstrate,’” Williams, 57, instructed The Write-up.
Her eponymous exhibit, which launched into countrywide syndication in 2009 and amassed a series of Emmy wins, achieved an unceremonious end on June 17 at the fingers of generation company Debmar-Mercury.
The previous episode was emceed by recurring visitor host Sherri Shepherd, 55, who first stepped in for Williams in February as she grappled with wellness problems.

Now, she’s set to consider about Williams’ coveted mid-early morning time slot with a self-titled talk method of her own in the tumble.
In late June, Williams revealed to TMZ that she’s lost about 95% of the experience in her swollen toes owing to her battle with lymphedema — a affliction caused by a blockage in the lymphatic process. She’s grappling with the long-term ailment though simultaneously contending with Graves’ illness, the immune procedure disorder that results in an overproduction of thyroid hormones.
Williams went community with her Graves’ diagnosis in 2018, soon after fainting on-air in the course of an October 2017 reside taping. (Following regaining consciousness, the veteran broadcaster returned to the established and shut the display.)
But when asked by The Publish why she unsuccessful to make a swan track physical appearance for the duration of the mid-June finale, the cheeky hostess claimed: “[Debmar-Mercury] didn’t request me to do that, so I did not. I sat in my condominium and I watched it. And [I was] like, ‘Eek!’”
And Williams, without the need of any unwell will towards the producers, thinks that her exclusion from the show’s closing was a output misstep.
“Debmar-Mercury, in my impression, should really have completed it with [me], not these other people today on ‘The Wendy Williams Present,’” explained the Hollywood Wander of Famer, including, “Except for Extra fat Joe.”
The Bronx musician, 51, served as a co-guest host various situations with rapper Remy Ma in the course of the daytime diva’s absence from the show in 2021. “I adore him,” Williams gushed. “He’s my most loved.”
In the weeks due to the fact the “Wendy” phase went completely dark, the show’s at the time-verified Instagram account, as well as its substantial-trafficking YouTube channel, have been deleted. Die-tricky enthusiasts of the display balked at the seemingly unjust erasure, saying on Twitter, “The actuality that they deleted the Wendy Williams YouTube Channel is insane but they also went just after her Instagram also.”
Though her celebrated simulcast and any traces of its glory are being scrubbed off the web, the gossipy glamour girl is hoping to premiere a podcast, titled the “The Wendy Working experience,” in the around future.
“If you’re exceptionally popular like I am, [hosting a podcast] will make more dollars than being on ‘The Wendy Williams Demonstrate,’” a gleeful Williams informed The Write-up.
“What I want to do is podcast, and I want to have a restaurant,” she continued, noting that there is no established release day for her demonstrate or the opening of her eatery — a seafood-centric parlor that she’d like to recognized in either New York Metropolis or her home point out of New Jersey.
In addition to debuting her eating place and electronic broadcast — on which she programs to discuss about “everything,” with celebrity company like Donald Trump, Mariah Carey and Queen Latifah — the lauded queen of all media suggests she’s seeking for some hot loving.
“If I really do not do nearly anything else, including podcast, I would really like to tumble in appreciate. I want to f- -k,” Williams informed The Put up in a Zoom interview, with her manager Will Selby off-digital camera. “Excuse me, I’m stunning. Can I f- -k?” she quipped.
In April 2019, Williams submitted for divorce from her husband of 22 years, Kevin Hunter, 49, amid bombshell revelations that he was anticipating a newborn with his longtime mistress Sharina Hudson.
To some, it appeared the abrupt finish of her relationship, coupled with her unyielding wellness woes, rattled the veteran shock jock. Wells Fargo even froze her financial institution accounts for various weeks earlier this yr.
The financial institution reportedly feared that Williams had become a mentally “incapacitated person” who was in have to have of fiscal guardianship.
Nevertheless, the irrepressible firecracker, via law firm LaShawn Thomas, denied claims of her diminished capability and submitted a short-term restraining purchase against the lender, demanding it “reopen any frozen accounts or property.”
In February, Page 6 exclusively described that Williams’ case in opposition to Wells Fargo experienced been sealed.
Her banking challenges and hunt for a roll in the hay aside, Williams explained she would also take into account returning to the smaller screen.
“Maybe I’ll go back again on Television. Maybe, I really do not know,” the media diva told The Write-up. “I’ve acquired so a great deal income, I can do anything I want, or absolutely nothing at all.”
