It may be The Wendy Williams Show, but the host is no longer included in the planning while she’s on an indefinite hiatus. “At first they were keeping her and [husband] Kevin Hunter in the loop, getting their approval on replacement hosts and guests,” an insider close to the show said.
However, they’re no longer including Wendy Williams on planning emails.
“She is 100 percent not involved,” the source continues. “Every decision is now being made with zero conversations with Wendy.”
Last month, The Queen of All Media, Wendy, delayed the return to her show for the third time, due to health complications. “As Wendy Williams Hunter previously shared, she fractured her shoulder and has been on the mend. Over the past few days, Wendy has experienced complications regarding her Graves’ Disease that will require treatment,” her family revealed in a press release on January 18. “Wendy will be under the strict supervision of her physicians, and as part of her care, there will be significant time spent in the hospital. Despite her strong desire to return, she is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being.”
After pushing back her show again, a source close to the star also revealed to Us that she’s been considering relocating from New Jersey into Manhattan “for her health and life to improve.”
The Say It Like You Mean It host last appeared on her talk show on Friday, December 21. While a week-long hiatus was planned the following week, it was extended into two weeks for health reasons. However, it has continuously been pushed back ever since.
Let's keep Auntie Wendy in our thoughts and prayers
