The Wendy Williams Show fans flocked to the comment section to demand where Sherri Shepherd is. They weren’t interested in seeing what Leah had to say during the popular segment called “Hot Topics.”

  • “Let me know when Sherri’s back.”
  • “Just canceled all my recordings of this show!!! Until you bring Sherri back or our love Wendy is on … I’m not watching!”
  • They are literally the worst.. total snooze fest… dry as a mouthful of cinnamon!
  • Wendy Wendy Wendy 🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺 🙏
  • “Wendy should work via zoom!❤️”

However, not all the comments were negative. One user said they love watching Leah and Michelle together. Others thought the two celebrity guests will make for a good time. The fans will tune in, regardless of who the host has been lately.

Still, most fans are waiting for Wendy’s highly anticipated return. They can’t wait for the former DJ to return to her iconic purple chair. She’s been missing since Season 13 premiered in September. Wendy is currently battling a private health crisis.

“No-one expected ratings to go up 32% without Wendy,” an insider told Radar. “The fill-in hosts were just supposed to keep the show’s lights on until Wendy was well enough to return. It was assumed that without Wendy, the audience would not watch, but this has not been the case.”

Sherri Shepherd attracted Wendy’s fans and brought in her own as well. Rumors are swirling that she could replace the talk show host. What are your thoughts? Do you think Sherri would be a good fit? Sound off below in the comments.

  1. Better hosts out there that don’t represent the “loud, I dropped out of school bimbos pond.” How about some better role models? Leah Remini needs to recalibrate her anxiety meter.


  3. Hate Leah remini and her co/host on the Wendy williams show. So fake and dated. Bring Ms. Shepherd back please please please! W/W fan👍🏼

  4. I love Leah and Michelle. They have a charisma that works very well together.
    Sheri Shepherd comes off loud and obnoxious.

  5. I like Leah and Michelle. They are entertaining to watch. Give them their own show when Wendy gets back!

  6. I like Michelle Visage and think she’s an excellent contributor as a cohost. I also liked sherri shepherd too. Leah Remini, not so much. Kind of forces her laughter and her jokes are predictable. I realize this isn’t her forte but appreciate her effort.

  7. I love them both!! I’ve always loved Leah Remini and her friend/co-host Michelle click so well together. They should be a package deal.

    Sherri Shepherd did well also. Her comedy was flowing and on point. She’s a natural.

    Either one of these ladies and I will continue to watch the show.

    Much needed change and so refreshing!!

  8. I absolutely LOVE Leah Remini, and Michelle Visage hosting the show together. They are very entertaining! They are the only guest hosts of the Wendy Williams Show, other than Jerry Springer, and Steve Wilkos, that I did Not change the channel to another show. I think Sherry Shepard is boring, nothing personal, I just do not enjoy the show with her hosting. If Wendy does not return, they should Definitely replace her with Leah, and Michelle! If Wendy does return, then Leah, and Michelle should get their own talk show. They are great! I looked forward to watching them everyday! I am going to miss them Very much. I do hope Wendy is doing well though, and recovers soon. Please bring back Leah, and Michelle!

  9. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE watching Leah Remini and Michelle Visage!!! They are entertaining and super fun to watch! I appreciate how real they are. That, coupled with how open/honest their conversation topics are, had me feeling like I was spending an hour with girlfriends every day. I appreciate how they thanked the entire crew each episode, how they refused to dog anyone during Hot Topics, and how they made everyone (me included) laugh multiple times. That poor woman trying to show products for sale didn’t stand a chance because Leah stole the show with her hilarious antics. The new segments, Remini’s Remedies and Michelle convincing us why we needed something in 60 seconds were great additions! Their outfits were super cute and complimentary without being matchy-matchy. I didn’t want their time guest hosting to end!! Now, I want them to have their own talk show!

  10. Leah is doing to much on this show and Michelle shouldn’t have to tell a grown woman how to act. I hate the episode with Holly Robinson Peete when Leah jumped back as if Mrs. Peete was contagious. That was totally disrespectful. Leah don’t know how to talk to people and she is certainly not fit for hot topic.

  11. I think SHERRI is doing an ABSITIVELY, POSOLUTELY excellent job! I like her EVEN BETTER than WENDY! Initially, I didn’t know that was SHERRI. She has a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ATTITUDE since I’ve last seen her! You are looking good, Sherri.

  12. I love Sherri Shephard, but have to say that I am totally loving Finesse Mitchell and Kim Whitley! They are excellent consistently and make me laugh multiple times every show. Love, love, love them!!!!!
