The Wendy Williams Show came to an end on June 17, 2022, after the host retired citing health issues. Williams had been absent from the show all throughout 2021-2022 during which Sherri Shepherd filled in. Now that Sherri has been given her very own show as a replacement to the former show, the staff loyal to Wendy fear they might be kicked out.
Will The Wendy Williams Show Staffers Undergo Loyalty Test?
As per sources close to the production, there are some concerns from some staffers that were brought on board to be a part of Shepherd’s latest talk show. Sherri premiered on September 12, 2022, and some staff members fear that their jobs might not be secure under the new boss. “Staffers for Sherri have been in her ear saying there should be some sort of loyalty test from The Wendy Williams Show holdovers,” claimed one source.
This issue can be a particularly scary reason for some faces familiar to Wendy’s audiences. Producers Norman Baker and Suzanne Bass appeared frequently on-screen when Wendy was on screen. However, with Sherri taking charge, they have kept themselves on the sidelines. Suzanne served as the co-executive producer for The Wendy Williams Show while Norman was the supervising producer.
Execs Norman & Suzanne Stayed Backstage During Sherri’s Premiere
As per The Sun, the source further revealed the possibility of them being ultimately fired from the show. They said, “Norman & Suzanne want to believe they’ll stick around but sooner or later I’m sure they are going to get pushed out. There’s no real place for them now.”
Wendy Williams’ fans also bashed Shepherd for failing to bring back these key members from the crew on her latest talk show. Sherri’s self-titled talk show premiered on Monday alongside Kandi Burruss from Real Housewives Of Atlanta as the show’s guest. The faces that weren’t a part of the show on the premiere day were Suzanne Bass and Norman Baker. They were a fan favorite while Wendy was in charge of the daytime talk show.
Fans took to Twitter to talk about this new arrangement as one wrote, “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 show?” questioned another.
A third chimed in, “#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.”
Sherri Shepherd Throws Shade At Wendy Williams
Ahead of her show’s debut, Shepherd threw shade at the controversial Wendy Williams. She stated that she will ensure that her version of the talk show will be way friendlier. The 55-year-old also clarified that she isn’t a mean person and wishes to bring nothing but positive energy to the show.
