Rumors Swirl Around Future of Wendy Williams Show

Another week, another Wendy Williams-less Wendy Williams Show. The popular daytime show’s host is still a no-show as she confronts what has been described as a medical and personal crisis of some sort that continues to be the subject of gossip.

Speaking of, PageSix claims that of the dozen or so uninspiring celebrities that have been paraded through the program as guest hosts, only one has truly stepped up and got Wendy’s attention: her self-described friend Nick Cannon. According to PageSix, Wendy was alarmed at how well Cannon carried the show and now fears she could lose out to him–or someone else.

“She’s super scared and anxious,” an insider told PageSix. “Watching [fill-in host] Nick Cannon being a huge hit with her audience is tough for her. They’re already starting to mess with the format. It’s like watching them screw around with her baby.”

Today, Sherri Shepherd took her turn. This week, Jerry O’Connell and Michael Rappaport get a stab as the Wendy carousel keeps spinning–with no known date when Wendy herself will return–or if she’ll even have a show to return to.
