"At first the staff was worried about losing their jobs," the source admitted about the many people left in limbo when Williams started skipping work. "Now it looks like the show can survive without Wendy, and a lot of people don't want her to return."

With a slew of guest hosts, the staff has been reassured by their calming presence.

The source explained that Williams' diva behavior dragged down her employees: "There was so many unwritten rules with working with Wendy. You couldn't contact her directly. Only certain staff members could talk with her."

Her husband Hunter was also a terror on set, the source claimed.

"No one was allowed to disagree with him. It was a nightmare work environment," the source told "You never knew what mood Wendy or Kevin were going to be in."

Amid the chaos, Williams has fled her native New York. On January 30, published exclusive photos of the star in Florida.
