The Wendy Williams Show has found its permanent guest host. According to sources it has been confirmed that guest host Sherri Shepherd is in talks to become a permanent guest host. The production of the show however has maintained that the talk show is keeping its name even though it’s hosted by someone else.
Sherri Shepherd and other celebrities have rotated hosting duties since Wendy Williams stepped back from the role in September. However, a rep for Shepherd remained tight-lipped about this news.
Shepherd is currently set to take the hot seat from Feb. 21 to Feb. 25.
It is said that the producers are waiting to see if Wendy Williams’ health improves and she is able to return before they decide to change the name of the talk show. It is also reported that if Williams’ condition remains the same, Shepherd will assume her new position at the start of the upcoming season in September.
More than four months have passed since producers shared Wendy was diagnosed with Covid 19. At the time, they said in a statement that she was taking a break to receive treatment and the show would kick off its 13th season in October.
However, the show was delayed for a second time ahead of the premiere.
