Wendy Williams' staff members were blindsided by the news that she's dating a middle-aged doctor, RadarOnline.com exclusively learned.

On the July 8 episode of The Wendy Williams Show, the 54-year-old announced on air that she's dating a medical professional in his fifties just weeks after she was spotted with felon boy toy Marc Tomblin, 27.  A source spilled to RadarOnline.com that Williams' employees believe it was an attempt to save her job and image!

"Her team didn't know she was going to make the announcement," the insider told RadarOnline.com. "They believe she did this to make sure her bosses knew she was no longer with the young kid."

The insider claimed to RadarOnline.com that Wendy Williams Show executives felt "very uncomfortable" after photographs surfaced of the talk show host "running around New York" with Tomblin last month. On July 8, Williams joked that she was over dating younger men.

“27-year-old boys, quite frankly, find me attractive,” she said. “I get it, but when it comes time for the comfort of a man I need someone in his 50s, too, and he’s gotta work."

The host's staff have even gossiped about her faking the relationship.

"Ratings have been awful recently. She's now focused on saving the show and will do whatever she has to to keep it on the air," the source said.

As RadarOnline.com reported, Williams, 54, filed for divorce from her husband of nearly two decades, Kevin Hunter, 46, in April. The TV personality cited "irreconcilable differences" and then barred him from entering her studio.

On the July 8 episode, Williams claimed that the new man in her life has "been married" and has kids.
