"If anybody thinks Wendy is done with television and show business in general, they’re sadly mistaken," the insider insisted, per HollywoodLife. "Wendy has been in this industry almost her entire life and she’s definitely preparing to make a big comeback."

"She’s feeling better every day and has every intention on coming back to her show, and even wants to work on some other projects in the upcoming year," the source reportedly added. "Wendy never planned on not returning so that’s not something that’s even on her radar."

The guest hosts who have been filling in for the Ask Wendy: Straight-Up Advice for All the Drama In Your Life author have been well-received by viewers. "No-one expected ratings to go up 32% without Wendy. The fill-in hosts were just supposed to keep the shows lights on until Wendy was well enough to return," an insider previously told Radar. "It was assumed that without Wendy, the audience would not watch, but the has not been the case."
