Wendy Williams seems to be leaning on old friends following the recent cancellation of her talk show.
The TV personality — who originally stepped back from The Wendy Williams Show last year to deal with ongoing health complications — has reportedly been reeling ever since her show was axed last month, and she is now linking up with a former friend who may know what she's going through.
As seen in her Instagram Story on Sunday, March 13, the ailing host, 57, reconnected with pal DJ Boof following their complicated history after he seemingly left her daytime show in 2020.
"Having fun with my friend @djboof !" she wrote alongside a photo of the pair laughing together on a couch, leading fans to think that their falling out is all water under the bridge now.
Boof also shared the post to his own Instagram account, captioning the pic: "I don’t wanna hear it🤣 '2022.'”

Fans in the comment section expressed how pleasantly surprised they were to see Williams reconnecting with her old friend, with one user writing: "Awwww loving this picture! Good to see y’all together! ❤️🙏🏽," while another commented: "A duo that has been missed 💕💕💕," on Boof's post.
As OK! previously reported, Boof — who was known as Williams' "sidekick" and even rumored boyfriend at one point — was fired prior to the show's cancellation after many years working with the ailing host and referring to her as his "special friend."
At the time, Boof took to social media to call out the culture at Williams' show, cryptically telling his followers: "Y’all have no idea what’s really going on and everyone there is afraid to speak up because they don’t wanna lose their jobs, this is going to play out bad. I feel sorry for the workers and victims."
When Williams returned to film her show in September of that year, Boof was noticeably missing, with DJ Suss One as his replacement, who confirmed he would be filling in for the rest of the season while Williams failed to acknowledge the switch.
As for Williams, she hasn't appeared on her show since July 2021 following complications from her battle with Graves' Disease, a thyroid condition, a stint with COVID-19 and a hospitalization for "psychiatric services."
Despite Williams' ongoing health issues, OK! learned she's considering taking legal action against the Debmar-Mercury co-presidents, as an insider pointed out:
