Wendy Williams Teases Her TV Return After Stepping Back From 'The Wendy Williams' Show Last Year
Ready for her rightful return! After Wendy Williams left her eponymous talk show last year to focus on her health amid her battle with Graves' disease, she was in good spirits on Monday, May 2, while attending Cardi B's Met Gala after-party, telling a TMZ photog that she'll be back in no time.
When the paparazzi asked the 57-year-old star if she would be popping up on screen again, she responded, "The Wendy Williams Show lives forever."
The pap then questioned if she'll be on the show come September, to which she replied, "Yes! Yes!"
After taking a step back from her series, Sherri Shepherd and a few other ladies have been stepping in as guest hosts, and it was then revealed that The Wendy Williams Show would be ending this year after 13 seasons, and Shepherd will host her own show as its replacement.
Williams hasn't shared any details as to what she plans to do next, but a source claimed she "is looking to launch all kinds of new projects," including a podcast and a wellness program that will help those suffering from Graves' disease like herself.
