Sherri & Wendy Swap

It’s been a bad year for Wendy Williams.  First she got the coronavirus after telling Dr. Oz that she didn’t trust the vaccine.  Then her Graves’ disease flared up.  And then “something” kept her shuttered away.  But, this is a new Billy – looking at the bright side.  This gave my pal Sherri Shepherd an opportunity to do what she does best – jump into any situation and make it better.  Sherri’s natural light and ebullience brought joy to Wendy watchers.  But she couldn’t take over the show full-time – after all, she lives in California and has a contract with Dish Nation.  This meant there were other fill-in hosts.  Each and every one made Sherri look even better.  Therefore, I am pleased to announce that after The Wendy Williams Show shutters at the end of this season, it will be replaced by a new daytime talk show called Sherri.  Congrats!!!

No sooner had that announcement been made than Wendy fired her entire management team – including publicist Howard Bragman.  He had just issued a press release on Wendy’s behalf: “She, more than anyone, understands the reality of syndicated television – you can’t go to the marketplace and sell a show that’s The Maybe Wendy Show.  She understands why this decision was made from a business point of view, and she’s been assured by Debmar-Mercury that should her health get to a point where she can host again and should her desire be that she hosts again that she would be back on TV at that time.”  Shortly thereafter, Wendy posted this: “Mr. Bragman although I appreciate your concerns and respect you immensely I have not authorized you to make any statements on my behalf regarding my current status with Debmar-Mercury [producers of The Wendy Williams Show].  Again thanks for your continuing concern and support.”  Howard questions the veracity of that post.  So, what’s the positive side?  Maybe Wendy’s on the mend.  To be continued…
