The Wendy Williams Show has announced more celebrities that will guest host while the popular talk show host continues her extended leave due to her battle with Graves’ Disease.
Nick Cannon had already been announced as the first guest host from February 4 to February 6. And now Page Six is reporting that fans can expect more guest hosts into mid-February.
The show has been airing repeats, as well as original episodes with a variety of hosts the past few weeks.
The guest hosts include actor Jason Biggs (Feb. 7), Keke Palmer (Feb. 8.), Sherri Shepherd (Feb. 11 and12), comedian Michael Rapaport (Feb. 13), and previous guest host Jerry O’Connell (Feb. 14 and 15).
After weeks of delays, Williams’ family announced in mid-January that she will not be returning to her popular daytime show anytime soon due to complications stemming from her Graves’ disease. She had previously fractured her shoulder before going on hiatus for the December holidays.
“As Wendy Williams Hunter previously shared, she fractured her shoulder and has been on the mend. Over the past few days, Wendy has experienced complications regarding her Graves’ Disease that will require treatment,” a statement read. “Wendy will be under the strict supervision of her physicians, and as part of her care, there will be significant time spent in the hospital.”
It is not clear when Williams will return to the purple chair, but get well soon!
