Talk show host Wendy Williams is reportedly concerned that she will lose her program in the wake of her various guest hosts’ thriving performances.
Williams is currently taking a hiatus from hosting her syndicated daytime talk show, and has been off-camera since December.
Nick Cannon filled in for Williams last week and scored some good reviews, then American Pie actor Jason Biggs followed. More guest hosts are scheduled to appear this week, and there is no word about when Williams will return.
An alleged show insider revealed the long-time host’s reported concerns to Page Six, saying that she’s “super scared and anxious,” and that watching Cannon’s success with her studio audience has not been an easy thing for Williams to watch. It was also stated that the show’s format is starting to change, and Wendy Williams doesn’t appear to be too comfortable watching “her baby” get messed with.
Her sabbatical could be about more than her health. Rumors have been swirling for a while that Williams is having marital problems with her husband, Kevin Hunter, who is also the show’s executive producer.
Cannon told Williams’ audience that he had spoken to Williams about that, and the 54-year-old told him that “she wanted to speak as a family unit and her, Kevin and [their son] Little Kevin said they are all good.”
