The Wendy Williams Show ended on Friday, June 17. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, fans say the producers did her dirty by pulling her namesake show out from under her. In February 2022, the network announced that they canceled the original talk show and will replace it with Sherri Shepherd’s new show in the fall. Wendy had plans to return to her show, but she ran out of time.
She went on an extended hiatus in September 2021 due to her ongoing health problems. On top of that, she has to deal with financial issues stemming from her legal battle with Wells Fargo. She doesn’t have access to her frozen bank accounts. Fans accused the network of doing Wendy dirty again. Find out what they had to say.
Wendy Williams fans upset with the network
Wendy Williams fans are not happy with the final episode. They claim the network snubbed her from the series. However, it was initially reported that Wendy was the one who snubbed the show. She didn’t want to make an appearance because she was bitter about how this situation unfolded.
Some fans took notice of the video montage, which was only seven minutes long. They saw that it didn’t include all of her iconic moments on the daytime talk show. Most fans took to Twitter to send love to Wendy Williams as her show went off the air. Others were upset with the network for not having her return for the final broadcast. Wendy hasn’t sat in her big purple chair for almost a year.
- “I think it’s kinda foul/disrespectful to have the last episode of Wendy, without Wendy.”
- “The ‘machine’ doesn’t care.”
- “What a weird show.”
- “Welcome to the final #WendyWilliams show. Let’s talk about her like she’s dead cuz we didn’t invite her here today…”
- “How is @WendyWilliams last show and don’t have her host show smfh.”
Did the showrunners rush the tribute?
Wendy Williams fans were particularly not happy with the tribute montage. They argued that it looked more like an afterthought. Some fans noted that it was just a “mashup of all the teasers.” It wasn’t the proper tribute that they were hoping for.
Fans think the network should’ve done better for the original host who broke the mold when it came to daytime television. Wendy Williams was ahead of the curve by talking about pop culture topics. The 57-year-old promised a return to television this summer. During her interview with Good Morning America, she insisted that she would make a big return.
