Last month, the popular TV show The Wendy Williams Show concluded. 13 years with the show is a long time for people not to miss it. But its conclusion missed one key element – its host.
The Queen of Daytime announced last year that she would be stepping away from her talk show. In her place, different guests hosted each episode for an entire season.
Sherri Shepherd hosted the final episode, which featured a heartwarming farewell and an array of activities dedicated to Williams.
The TV personality was not impressed by that.
“There was nothing I liked about the [final episode of] Wendy Williams Show,” she said in an interview with The New York Post.
Williams said that the media parent company, Debmar-Mercury managed her series and did not involve her in its final broadcast. As a result, she watched it at home.
“[Debmar-Mercury] didn’t ask me to do that, so I didn’t. I sat in my apartment, and I watched it. And [I was] like, ‘ick!'”
She continued that her exclusion from the last episode was an oversight on the company’s side, as well as the involvement of other personalities – except Fat Joe.

“Debmar-Mercury, in my opinion, should have done it with [me], not these other people on The Wendy Williams Show. Except for Fat Joe.”
The rapper co-guested with Remy Ma in 2021 and captured Williams’s professional adoration. “I love him,” she said. “He’s my favorite.”
Fans have recently noticed that the YouTube channel and Instagram handle of The Wendy Williams Show has been removed. This is a measure she was shocked by but also very disappointed in.
“The fact that they deleted the Wendy Williams YouTube Channel is insane, but they also went after her Instagram too.”
Nonetheless, Williams seems to be taking her pace as she is now working on her latest media ventures with the ensuing release of her podcast, The Wendy Experience. According to her, the most recent rove will, in fact, be more lucrative than TV.
“If you’re extremely famous like I am, [hosting a podcast] will make more money than being on The Wendy Williams Show.”
Williams stepped away from the spotlight in 2020 to focus on health issues that pointed toward Graves’ disease, which affects the thyroid.
