Talk show titan Wendy Williams may be taking a bit of downtime from hosting, but she’s most definitely not out. The Shade Room reports that Wendy assured fans that she “absolutely” plans to return to her show and isn’t checking for Sherri Shepherd, who will take over the time slot with her own upcoming show.

As a guest host of The Wendy Williams show since her absence began last year, Fat Joe was the perfect person to get the behind-the-scenes info from Wendy herself in a recent interview.
When asked if she missed coming to the show, Wendy said, “I wish I was there right now to talk about it, and talk about it with you. But, you know what? They already put people there like you.You guys are already in position. I’m glad I’m able to talk about when I come back.”

Wendy said she’s “absolutely” planning a comeback to The Wendy Williams Show. Joe asked about replacing her in the line-up. It seemed like Wendy’s not bothered by Sherri doing her thing during the hiatus, but the veteran host is also not going to watch the new show.
“I [like] her, but I won’t be watching her because I know what she’s gonna be doing and that’s really not my thing. Ummm, you know? You know what I’m saying? Anyway.”
Sherri responded to the slightly shady answer on IG Live, ultimately wishing Wendy well while she focuses on bigger issues.
“She’s not well. So, it’s just a lot going on in Wendy’s life. This when you need your friends. You need your family. You need people who love you. So, all I can do over here is pray for Wendy,” Sherri said.
The former host of The View went on to reflect on their friendly relationship in the past but clarified that Wendy was never really friends with celebrities because “it would make it hard for her to talk about them.”
While the ladies are keeping it classy, die-hard fans are impatiently waiting for Wendy to reclaim her throne when the dust settles.
Sherri needs to chill because Wendy didn’t even say anything shady about her. Calling her “unwell” when you aren’t even her doctor, let alone her friend, is uncalled for.
And let’s not pretend that she isn’t getting a show with Wendy’s entire staff and production crew. pic.twitter.com/UHt9mvtODx

Sherri doesn’t look right speaking up about Wendy in this manner. Chile— I can not !

not counting Wendy out by any means, but if syndication is already slotted to carry Sherri’s show in its place, does this mean the WW show will exist in a different slot or an entirely different platform? https://t.co/EebmwH1HaQ

Wendy loves a blurry, lagging video.
Wendy loves mess, Sherri’s show is probably not messy therefore she wouldn’t watch it. https://t.co/OIKtB2p6Uy

Despite ongoing concerns and legal disputes about Wendy’s health, last week she showed up and showed out at the Met Gala. She definitely looks ready for a triumphant return sometime soon.
