According to sources close to Williams, Wendy did not approve at all of Leah stepping into her spot.
Leah filled in for just four days, before exiting the stage. However, the source claims that at the time Wendy was feeling very paranoid about anyone filling in for her. They reveal that Williams feels anyone and everyone was competing against her to take over her show and she was not going to allow that.
However, some fans are feeling a couple of Wendy’s replacements and are calling out for their return as host. Fans claim that they enjoyed Leah Remini and Sherri Shepard and want to see more of them. In fact, some are even calling for either Leah or Sherri to take over the hosting gig permanently.
As for Leah stepping in full-time, rumors are circulating that Remini may be in talks to join the Bravo reality series “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Nothing has been confirmed on this rumor at the present, but Bravo fans are loving the idea! For Sherri Shepard, she has been a huge hit as host also and fans are pulling to see more of her!
One fan of the show comments, “I’m hoping she (Wendy) gets better…but Sherri is great! I think she needs a show of her own!”
“Just change it to The Sherri Show, and let Sherri do Sherri,” writes another.
Others claim they are anxiously awaiting Wendy Williams’s full recovery and return to her show, adding that the fill-ins are okay for the time being, but it is Wendy Williams who has made the show all along!”
For now, Wendy is sitting back and awaiting her doctor’s okay to return to her normal day-to-day life.
