Fans are going to have to wait a little longer to hear Wendy Williams say, “How you doin’?”
According to Variety on Wednesday, The Wendy Williams ShowÂ distributor and producer Debmar-MercuryÂ confirmed that the daytime talk show host has extended her hiatus for the second time, and will return on January 21, instead of January 14.
New episodes will premiere on the 14th,Â but with a panel of â€œHot Talkersâ€� taking the place of the 54-year-old.
Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein said in a statement:
â€œAs she has for the past 10 years, Wendy delivers an incomparable live talk show day in and day out and we want to give her the best opportunity to heal and recover… Wendy has our complete and unwavering support and we look forward to her return to the iconic purple chair.â€�
As we reported last month, the former radio personalityÂ blamed her â€œless than stellar showâ€� onÂ the pain medications she was taking for her fractured shoulder.
This news comes on the heels of her husband’s, Kevin Hunter, cheating scandal.
Allegedly, according to Radar Online earlier this month, Hunter soldÂ the Fort Lee, New Jersey condo where he lived with his alleged mistress of 10 years, Sharina Hudson. Allegedly, the two also lived in a Morristown mansion.
There are also rumors that Hunter got Hudson pregnant, a claim bothÂ he and Williams have denied.
To make matters worse, some online users believeÂ Kevin is the one who gave Wendy the shoulder fracture after she confronted him about the pregnant mistress. Because of this rumored drama, some believe that Wendy and Kevin are heading for divorce.
Hopefully, Williams will address all of this on January 21.
