The Wendy Williams Show fans want to know what happened to Suzanne Bass and Norman Baker. On June 16, 2022, the daytime talk show ended for the last time. Sherri Shepherd got her own talk show, which fell into the same timeslot as its predecessor. She premiered her namesake show on Monday, September 12.
Sherri has a new show and a new look. She got some help from some of Wendy’s former crew members. Debmar-Mercury is the same production company behind the syndicated talk show. Sherri ended up with Suzanne Bass and Norma Baker as well.
However, fans noticed they weren’t on the premiere episode. What happened?
What happened to Suzanna Bass & Norman Baker?
Sherri is trying to separate itself from The Wendy Williams Show. It has a colorful pastel set instead of the former purple set and the iconic big purple chair. Sherri stepped out in a hot pink suit for the premiere. She made herself comfortable in her pastel pink chair as she introduced viewers to her new show.
There were two important faces missing from the show. Suzanne Bass and Norman Baker often interacted with Wendy on her talk show. It was reported that Sherri hired both of them. Even though she ended up with Wendy’s former production team, neither of them was in front of the cameras.
Suzanne served as an executive producer, while Norman acted as supervising producer. He would also interact with Wendy during her “Hot Topics” segment. It’s likely that both of them got promoted to new behind-the-scenes positions with huge pay grades. Fans were upset about the premiere of Sherri.
It’s obvious that neither Norman nor Suzanne were around. Some of them complained on both Twitter and here on TV Shows Ace. They want to know if the two are still working for Sherri. Read on to see where they’re hiding and if the new host got rid of them.
Wendy Williams Show producers: Where are they now?
Wendy Williams Show fans want to know what happened to them. According to Suzanne’s LinkedIn profile, she still has herself listed as Co-Executive Producer of The Wendy Williams Show. However, on her Instagram bio, she calls herself the “Co-Executive Producer of Sherri.”
As for Norman, he refers to himself as the “two-time Emmy-nominated Supervising Producer at The Wendy Williams Show” on his Instagram bio. In an interview with BET.com in July, he was asked to share his feelings about the show ending. Fans complained that they didn’t like the way the show ended. They argued that Wendy didn’t get the tribute she deserved.
“Honestly, that’s above me. It’s above me now,” Norman said.
He claims most of the “decisions are made above us.” Norman wasn’t involved with the conversations on how to end The Wendy Williams Show. Regardless, he felt “good” about what they could do. Norman didn’t share his future with Sherri.
