The Wendy Williams Show fans are in an uproar. Celebrity guests have been lining up to fill in her spot as she takes this time to focus on her health. There has been a mix of guest hosts, such as Leah Remini. Yet, fans want Sherri Shepherd back. Some of them are wondering where the former The View co-host has been at lately.
Leah and Michelle Visage are the latest celebrities to replace the talk show host. The King of Queens star shared a photo of herself with the RuPaul’s Drag Race judge on Instagram, sending fans into a tailspin. They think Sherri is the perfect replacement.
Where’s Sherri Shepherd?
On Tuesday, November 30, fans were in for a shock when they learned that Leah Remini is replacing Sherri Shepherd. She shared a selfie of herself with Michelle Visage on Instagram. The two ladies appeared makeup-free and fresh-faced in the photo. They cozied up in their matching white terrycloth robes.
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.
Wendy Williams dealing with health issues
The pop culture fix has stepped back to deal with “ongoing health issues.” This comes after Wendy was rushed to the hospital for “psychiatric services.” The 57-year-old told tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19 and is dealing with complications from Graves’ disease.
Earlier this month, rumors swirled that Wendy is not doing as well as she claims. She is confined to a wheelchair and suffering the early stages of dementia, which her brother has denied. Many celebrity guest hosts have stepped in to talk about the day’s “Hot Topics.” Though fans have vowed not to watch because of Leah Remini, producers noticed that the ratings have soared during Wendy’s absence.
“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.
