If there’s one thing Wendy Williams fans have learned about her over the years, it’s that there’s no subject she’s not scared of. From celebrity shenanigans to her own health issues, Williams has often spoken to her audience about many things as if they were sitting in the privacy of their own living room. When asked about her legacy and how she would like to be remembered, Williams told Interview magazine that she hopes her fans will see her as “the one bright spot in the middle of an otherwise complicated day.” When people think of my name, I want them to smile.”
However, there’s no doubt that Williams fans have smiled, laughed, and maybe even cried with her over the years, and especially in the last few months. That’s because the fate of her talk show was revealed back in February, when it was announced that former The View co-host Sherri Shepherd would take over Williams, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In March 2022, Williams opened up about her health and legal turmoil, insisting everything was fine. She told Good Morning America that she has “the mind and body of a 25-year-old.” Maybe that’s why she’s now entering the next phase of her career.
Wendy Williams wants to be the podcast queen
Wendy Williams is done with her TV show of the same name, but she’s not done with her career yet. According to TMZ, Williams is moving into the podcast world in a big way. She wants to line up some big A-list names as her podcast guests. Williams is hoping either Snoop Dogg or Fat Joe will be the first to sign up, which makes sense considering how Fat Joe himself interviewed her on Instagram Live recently in May. TMZ reports that Williams may partner with an online streaming platform like Apple or Spotify.
Additionally, sources told TMZ that Williams isn’t ruling out a return to television. In fact, insiders said she’s open to appearing on shows like The View or even one of the Real Housewives series. That, and Williams was apparently in talks with members of the Kardashian and Trump families. Regardless of what Williams ends up doing or where she goes, there’s no doubt in everyone’s mind that she’ll continue to ask everyone, “How are you?” before stepping into her gab fest.
