a bitter farewell. The talk show star Wendy Williams has been struggling since since her program was cancelled. The daytime TV star was devastated to learn that The Wendy Williams Show was ending without her, an insider told the UK’s Sun.
On June 23, 2022, the insider revealed to The Sun that Wendy was quite unhappy to lose her show. “I am aware that Wendy is currently quite hurt. She had a difficult week last week, the insider added. After 13 years on the air, The Wendy Williams Show was cancelled on June 17, 2022. “It’s really terrible how it all turned out. Consider building this all these years as your own child. How do you feel about it? Naturally, she feels hurt since it’s spread like wildfire and is in your face everywhere.
Due to her continued health problems, Wendy did not appear in the show’s final season. Since July 2021, the host has not sat in her renowned purple chair due to a Graves’ disease diagnosis. The final program featured a video ode to Wendy hosted by interim anchor Sherri Williams. Twitter was used by viewers to respond to how the show was handled. Wendy Williams deserves far better, a user tweeted. To not even give her the barest amount of respect by allowing her to participate on the show’s final episode is inexcusable. She developed this show and its viewership. Because of her health difficulties, they treated her so cruelly.
Sherri will debut her own program, Sherri, on the Fox Network at 10 a.m. on February 22, 2022, according to the distributor Debmar-Mercury. David Perler, the current showrunner of The Wendy Williams Show, will remain in that position for the upcoming iteration of the daytime program. Williams’ departure was announced that day, and Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein referred to it as “bittersweet” in a statement.
“We all have a great affection and affinity for Wendy,” they stated. “During her 12 fantastic seasons as the sole host of a live, daily talk show dishing on “Hot Topics” and interviewing celebrities, she blossomed into a true icon.” “We believe it is best for our viewers, stations, and advertising partners to start making this shift now while Wendy is still unable to host the show as she continues on her journey to recovery. We continue to wish Wendy a swift and complete recovery and hope to work with her once more in the future.
