AceShowbiz - Wendy Williams' fans are demanding the daytime diva to return to "The Wendy Williams Show". After the show made a new social media post, many fans of the TV hostess urged her to make a comeback to her iconic purple chair in the comment section.
On Wednesday, January 19, the daytime talk show made a fun post about mercury retrograde's energy that featured Finesse Mitchell and Kym Whitley posing. In the caption, it's simply written, "OVER IT."
Wendy's fans were quick to flood the comment section with their criticism as there's no update from the show's team regarding the 57-year-old ailing host. "We're over it too!!. Bring Wendy back or call it a day. Give the show over to someone else and we can decide to watch or dump it. OVER IT," one fan wrote, while another added, "Why won't anyone tell us when Wendy Williams is returning? Enough of these co-hosts already!!"
"Skipping this week, I've tried to watch but not feeling it at all," a separate fan claimed. A loyal fan added, "Wendy, your loyal viewers deserve an update. Just say something, good grief!"
Someone else insisted that "no Wendy, no show," while a fourth asked, "Where Wendy Williams? want her back." A fifth went on to accuse Wendy of "letting her fans down" as she's "staying silent" about her battle with physical and mental health issues.
As for "The Wendy Williams Show", the beloved talk show will reportedly be bringing Michael Rapaport back as a guest host. While the show has yet to make the official announcement, a source spilled to The Sun on Wednesday that the 51-year-old actor will guest-host on January 31 into the first week of February.
Michael actually had guest-hosted earlier this month, but his time was cut short after he tested positive for COVID-19. "I have to pull out of doing 'The Wendy Williams Show' the rest of the week because unfortunately, I got [the] damn coronavirus, which I'm disappointed about," the "Atypical" star said on January 11. "I'm really, really disappointed for many, many, many reasons. Obviously, I'm fine and I'll be all right."
Meanwhile, Wendy recently sparked rumors she'll "never return" to her show as she reportedly had cut off communication with her show's production team. On January 13, an insider spilled to The Sun, "She hasn't been talking to anybody, not producers, not senior producers, no one. She has disappeared and the only line of contact production has is through her manager."
In the meantime, other sources told the outlet that staffers fear Wendy will never return to the show as her ongoing health woes continue to keep her from returning to her daytime talk show. The insider shared, "I don't think she's ever going to come back to the studio."
Prior to the reports, Wendy appeared healthy in a clip posted by her son Kevin Hunter Jr. via Instagram. In the boomerang video, Kevin also added a location tag, Miami Downtown Brickell.
Previously, Wendy's brother Tommy Williams also insisted that he's fully confident "she's not finished." He shared, "I'm on the outside looking in just like you all. She's not gone folks, she is just recalibration go. If Wendy weren't doing well, I wouldn't be sitting here smiling."
