Sherri Shepherd is under fire for a massive misstep. Fans of The Wendy Williams Show noticed that she didn’t bring back two popular crew members on her talk show. Sherri premiered on Monday, September 12. It was a departure from Wendy’s old talk show, which was held in the same studio.
Gone were the iconic purple chair and matching decor. Sherri has a vibrant and colorful set. The former comedian had her own chair in pastel pink. Her self-titled talk show kicked off on Monday with an interview with The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss as the first guest.
The Wendy Williams Show crew members missing from the premiere
There was a huge difference between Sherri Shepherd’s new show and Wendy Williams’ former one. She wanted to make sure there was no confusion between the two. There were also two faces who were missing from the production crew. Fans noticed that neither co-executive producer Suzanne Bass nor supervising producer Norman Baker wasn’t in attendance.
Even though Sherri ended up with Wendy’s old production team, both crew members weren’t front and center. The pair became fan favorites during their time on Wendy’s show. They were known for their witty banter with the original talk show host. During Monday’s premiere, fans took to Twitter to note that both producers were missing from the broadcast.
- “Loving the show… but missing Norman & Suzanne…please bring them back, everything I have read says they are still working there? Congrats!”
- “Didn’t Norman agree to work on Sherri Shepherd’s new show?”
- “#SherriShepherd’s talk show was very good. I miss Norman. Jawn Murray standing where he is standing is annoying but, it was a good show.”
As TV Shows Ace previously reported, Sherri Shepherd had one of the cast members from RHOA as her first guest. Kandi has been in a feud with Wendy for years. Yet, she’s asked the Real Housewives franchise and her friends to boycott Sherri’s new show. However, it doesn’t look like they’ll oblige.
Sherri Shepherd returns to daytime television with her own show
Sherri Shepherd returned to daytime television on her own terms. She previously guest-hosted for Wendy on The Wendy Williams Show. Sherri was one of the many celebrity guests who filled in for the titular host. After several rotating guests and a boost in ratings, Sherri was announced as the permanent replacement host for the fallen talk show host.
Wendy has been struggling with ongoing health issues. Sherri Shepherd shared with fans what they can expect from her show. She wants to do things differently by focusing on positivity and incorporating her comedian timing. Sherri also wants to make it clear that her show is completely different as she’s just being herself.
Prior to guest hosting on Wendy’s show, Sherri was a panelist on The View from 2007 to 2014. What are your thoughts on Sherri’s new show? Do you miss Suzanne and Norman? Sound off below in the comment section.
