The end of an era came with a jolt, not a bang. Wendy Williams show Silently it has gone up in the air without its famous host and it is a frustration that fans are hard to believe. Only they are not dissatisfied Wendy Williams’ Lazy farewell after 14 years with the show.
Wendy Williams missed the last episode
Wendy Williams’ talk show went without her title host for her entire final season, although fans expected her to return at least for the final episode. Fans received the show’s farewell without him, although it was impossible to forget his presence during the 14 years of the show’s broadcast. Instead of Williams’ presence, the show rolled out several video clips of the former Shock Jock, including a lengthy montage of the host.
Williams’ longtime fans all seem to agree that this is going to be the worst case scenario for how the show will end. When William’s absence from the show was first announced in late 2021, fans were optimistic that his time would be shortened. However, this was not to be, and Williams soon removed himself due to a COVID-19 diagnosis before the mandatory delay of other health and personal problems.
Replaced by Sheri Shepherds
As he focused on his health and recovered, Williams was first replaced on the show by a rolling host and eventually Sherry Shepherd was tapped to fill his place full time. Shepherd had shut down the show, and it was Shepherd who would take on the role of talk host after he was impressed with his hosting abilities enough to land a show of his own. So, where does that leave Williams?

Fan response on Twitter
It feels absurd that Williams was not a part of the show’s finale, especially the all-important finale. The show bears his name, but he wasn’t even in the studio, and the video montage for him at the time of the touch was a pale comparison with his actual appearance. Online fans must have agreed, and there was a lot of denial, especially on Twitter.
Comparison with Britney Spears roll in
Many fans point to similarities between the current situation of Williams and the recent termination of the patronage of pop star Britney Spears. Last summer, Spears’ controversial conservatism ended after a long legal battle with the singer’s father. Williams is also facing a defensive battle, but his family did not bring the fight.
Wells Fargo, the bank apparently used by Williams, successfully applied for protection after arguing that the talk show host was a victim of “unwanted influence and financial exploitation”. Williams denied the allegations and used social media to denounce the move. He also accused his former manager, who was in charge of his finances, of embezzling funds.
