The Wendy Williams Show went off the air for good last June, but the drama surrounding its former host, Wendy Williams, has been in syndication for months. There was her stint in rehab, the cloven hoof she showcased to the world (that still lives in my nightmares), and her ill-fated podcast. And aside from these “Are you Ok?” moments, her 22-year-old son Kevin Hunter Jr. alleges the people around her have been plying her with booze and digging into her wallet to run her pockets whenever they want. Now, Lil’ Kevin wants to expose the horrible people surrounding his mother, but her manager Will Selby is slapping away at those claims.
Last year, Wendy Williams announced her grand return to the shit-talking stage and said she was going to do what everyone and their auntie has done before: a podcast. But maybe Wendy realized that her messy schtick is incomplete without shots of audience members nervously fake laughing over casual jokes about murder. Because it’s been reported that Wendy self-canceled her podcast before the first episode even came out. But according to her rep, Shawn Zanotti, her podcast hasn’t been canceled yet and there are other “projects” she’s working on. Hmmm, Wendy has been working on some “projects” for quite some time now; I wonder when one will actually materialize.
It seems like Wendy Williams‘ cheating ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, is gonna have to get a gig for once in his life that doesn’t involve living off of his wife’s career or wealth, as a judge has just dismissed his request for Wendy to restart alimony payments she allegedly stopped last year. And since Wendy’s show is over, Kevin should be focusing on advancing his own career–AKA seducing Sherri Shepherd since she’s the one collecting talk show paychecks these days.
Wendy Williams is back, I think. After leaving her talk show, The Wendy Williams Show, earlier this year over health-related woes, Wendy declared that she’s moving her legendary shit-talking from TV to the world of podcasting. And that podcasting is actually coming, I think. Wendy announced yesterday that her podcast,The Wendy Experience, will soon hit earholes. Yes, she stole Joe Rogan‘s show name, and I love that for her!
The Staff At Sherri Shepherd’s Talk Show Were Reportedly Mad At Marlo Thomas’ “Fat Shaming” Comments
Sherri Shepherd is currently enjoying her reign as the new Queen of Daytime Talk. Ok, she isn’t necessarily the “Queen.” Or even close. But whatever, after Debmar Mercury yanked former Queen of talk Wendy Williams from the show and tossed Sherri into the hot seat with a new coat of paint on the walls, she’s doing whatever she can to keep the lights on. And recently, she interviewed the legendary Marlo Thomas, who admitted she and Sherri go way back. Marlo remembers a time before Sherri’s weight loss journey began, but instead of simply reminding her, Marlo did an impersonation that was more suited as a tribute to Eddie Murphy in The Nutty Professor. And Sherri’s staff apparently didn’t take too kindly to Marlo’s gentle reminder.
Around this time last month, we heard that Wendy Williams had checked into rehab after many became concerned about her behavior and health. Well, now Wendy is out and possibly ready to reclaim her crown as the Troubadour of Trash Talk. And although we all know she needs to take up a less stressful hobby like coin collecting or knitting, that ain’t happening. Because not only is she prepared to work on her many upcoming projects, she may be serving you dinner and drink specials during Shoe Cam Sunday brunch at her alleged new restaurant.
