Where is Wendy Williams today?

WENDY Williams was absent from the season premiere of her own talk show on October 18, 2021.

Where is Wendy Williams today?

Williams has had a tough couple months after a Covid-19 diagnosis and ongoing health issues.Last week, the talk show announced the 57-year-old will not be returning for the upcoming season, as she is "not ready" to be on camera due to "ongoing medical issues."

On Instagram, they revealed that a series of "guest hosts" will take over for the foreseeable future, including actress, Leah Remini, who is filling in from for the first week.

Fans have since raved about her performance saying she's doing an "amazing job" filling in.

A source exclusively told The Sun earlier this week that the process to find replacements for Wendy, who recently bought a NYC penthouse amid all of her health issues, has been difficult.

"Wendy continues to be under medical supervision and meets with her medical team on a daily basis. She is making progress but is experiencing serious complications as a direct result of Graves’ Disease and her thyroid condition."

The post continued: "Wendy is a valued and stalwart member of the Debmar-Mercury family and has been so for 12 years. We want her health to be her top priority. As soon as she's ready, she will be back in her treasured purple chair. We very much appreciate the respect for Wendy’s privacy, as well as all the good wishes from her fans, station partners and advertisers."

Who else is guest hosting the Wendy Williams show?

Just days after the start of season 13, the show announced the addition of Whitney Cummings and Sherri Shepherd, who will take over after Remini’s gig ends.

Cummings said in a press released that she is an "avid fan" of the show and that sitting in the iconic purple chair is a "surreal" moment.

“In my opinion, nobody is more entertaining or authentic than Wendy Williams," Cummings said.

“As an avid fan, it is surreal to sit in for Wendy, but as someone who has been a guest on the show so many times, I feel confident that my relentless habit of speaking candidly, often to the point of self-sabotage, may go over well with her fans.”

Cummings will be the host for October 25-29 with Shepherd starting on November 1.

"I'm so excited to return to the Wendy Williams Show to host for a full week! Shepherd said about the role.

“I had such a great time when I hosted the show in 2019 and I'm flattered that Wendy and the producers put their trust in me to fill in again.

“I'm sending my love and well wishes out to her.” 

Shepherd will be seen on screens from November 1-5 but it remains unclear who will take over after her.

Who is Wendy Williams dating?

For 20 years, Williams was married to Kevin Hunter, with whom she shares son Kevin Jr.

In 2019, the two decided to part ways and Williams has since been linked to a couple of different men.

In early 2021, Williams was dating Maryland-based booker Mike Esterman, but after a couple months of dating, he exclusively told The Sun that they had drifted apart because of his busy work scheduled.

"It's a busy time of the year for home improvement, I don't know if I can give her what she wants," Esterman said. "Nobody called it a day, there's just no time to meet up. We talk when we can. I can't hold her back from meeting someone who can give her more."

Just a few months later, Williams was seen celebrating her son's birthday in August with a new man.

Williams shared a snap with her man in the car captioned: "My son’s 21st birthday party on the yacht in #Miami was everything he wanted! Even my boyfriend."

While she has confirmed a new relationship, the man's identity is still unknown.
