Wendy Williams is finally coming back to her "purple" chair. Last month the show host took a break from "The Wendy William Show" due to a health challenge. However, she is recovered and set to return next month.
Wendy's last appearance on the show was on the 21st of December; this was when she announced to her fans that she would be taking a week break to heal from a fracture she sustained on her shoulder.
She was supposed to resume shooting on January 14, but the initial break was later extended. Fans were told not to expect the television host until a few weeks after because of complications that ensued as a result of her Graves’ disease. Over a month of noticeable absence, a new date is now set for March 4.
Throughout her absence, The Wendy Williams Show has had various guest hosts filling in for the media personalty, but some days, reruns were aired instead. Fortunately, the show had done quite well through her absenteeism with its adoption of guest appearances and panelists like Nick Cannon, Jerry O’Connell, and Michael Rapaport.
The show is scheduled to air reruns next week and will return on the 4th of March with original episodes. And guess what? With these new originals, comes everyone’s favorite show host!
Wendy announced the come back in a personal statement while she also took the time to appreciate those who had held down her ‘fort.’
“Salute to Debmar-Mercury for believing from the start and thanks to my staff for tirelessly holding it down for me,” she said.
Nick Cannon who was one of those who filled in for Wendy during her time away anchored the program from February 4th to 6th on which he achieved a considerable amount of success. This wasn't much of a surprise; Nick hosts MTV’S Wild n’ Out and Fox’s The Masked Singer!
The episodes hosted by Cannon includes Williams’ Hot Topics segment, “Ask Wendy,” and the usual celebrity interviews. Fans of the show commended Nick’s professionalism, despite missing Wendy.
