Wendy Williams’ “The Wendy Williams Show” may shortly be renamed “The Sherri Show,” since she has been battling major health concerns for months.
Sherri Shepherd has been named the show’s regular guest host, according to TMZ, and Wendy’s health is being closely monitored.
The modification would become permanent if Wendy’s health did not improve.
“This is also a bitter-sweet moment for us and our partners at Fox. We all have great love and affinity for Wendy, who grew into a true icon during her 12 incredible seasons as the solo host of a live, daily talk show dishing on ‘Hot Topics’ and interviewing celebrities.”
Sherri told TMZ on Monday night in New York she was still just a temp and was non-committal about the impending change.
The official launch for Sherri’s show will be in September, TMZ reported.
