Wendy Williams Will Not Yet Return to Her Daytime Talk Show
Wendy Williams will remain absent from her famous purple chair amid ongoing health issues. In a social media statement from her Instagram account, it was announced that the host will sit out her season 13 premiere week, in favor of a rotating cast of guest hosts while she continues to recover.
“The Wendy Williams Show will start airing originals on Monday, Oct. 18, with an exciting lineup of guest hosts and panels to be announced shortly,” the post read.
Williams initially had to push back the beginning of her show’s new season as she was battling some psychiatric issues and a breakthrough case of COVID-19. Originally slated to begin Oct. 4, The Wendy Williams Show premiere was pushed to Oct. 18 to give the host more time to get her health in order to return to work.
