Sorry middle-aged women with no job and bitchy gays who work part time in retail: Wendy Williams is taking longer to come back than expected. Variety is reporting that Miss Wendy was supposed to return to her show on January 14, but now it’s looking like Wendy is going to let the tea steep a little longer and will show up to work on the 21st. …Hopefully.
Wendy has been having drama lately. She’s been all kinds of turnt while on her show: sitting too much, slurring a bunch, acting “totally checked out,” and she even screwed up her shoulder. It got to the point where her friends were like, “Wendy, what is up?” She herself admitted she was a bit out of it, because of the meds she was on for her busted shoulder. And things did not let up. Then we heard a rumor that her husband has a secret love child on the way, which she denied, but the stress (or demons) had her out here backstage at her show shouting at Whoopi Goldberg‘s ghost! Let me tell you: things have not improved.
It was announced that while Wendy is taking another week off to rest up her shit talking skills and heal her wounded shoulder, there will be a panel of “Hot Talkers” who will “entertain viewers” while she’s out. Oh goody, time to watch some D-List social commentators sit around a table while a C-List social commentator leads them through topics. Like The View if it had no budget. The show posted about both her first return date and then the new one:

Wendy Williams will be returning with all-new episodes of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, January 14, 2019. After fracturing her shoulder, Wendy is on the mend and wants to return pain-free and be 200%, delivering the best show that millions of viewers tune-in to watch.
Guess she isn’t “200%” yet. Can’t wait for the third post where it’s her just shouting: “I’ll get there when I get there!” in a grainy video while a see-through Whoopi Goldberg hovers over her shoulder.
Co-Presidents of The Wendy Williams Show‘s syndication company, Ira Bernsteins and Mort Marcus, put out a statement showing their support of Wendy because co-presidents always make statements when things are not falling completely off the rails:
“As she has for the past 10 years, Wendy delivers an incomparable live talk show day in and day out and we want to give her the best opportunity to heal and recover… Wendy has our complete and unwavering support and we look forward to her return to the iconic purple chair.”
Welp, looks like Wendy is still a mess and needs more time to recover. Truly, the shadiest gays and women of the world are pouring one out for you, Wendy. But you know who isn’t? Kris Jenner, who can enjoy another full week of only being passively-aggressively called “That Woman” by her housekeeper.
