Wendy Williams canceled a series of shows from her comedy tour amid low ticket sales. With one performance left on the tour, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the final show has been officially canceled.
The talk show host’s Saturday, September 21 show at the Mahaffey Theater in Florida has been canceled due to “unforeseen circumstances,” the venue’s website read.
The latest and final cancellation comes after a series of Williams' Wendy Williams & Friends: For the Record… UMM HMMM! shows were scratched from venue lineups.
Her performance in New Jersey on August 17 was shut down because of an “unforeseen scheduling conflict.”
Williams’ August 23 show at the Palace Theatre in Cleveland, Ohio was removed from the venue’s website.
Her September 6 and September 7 shows at Atlanta Symphony Hall were also canceled.
“We always want to be able to give the fans the best show ever,” a statement on the venue’s website read. “With that said, the same excitement, intensity and headlines that fueled Wendy Williams and Friends presents For The Record Umm Hmmm Comedy Tour has also fueled the cancellation of the scheduled show. Unfortunately, the goal and purpose of the tour has been sidelined by the headlines. The show may be canceled, but Wendy’s commitment and love for all of the fans that support her and continue to support her never will.”
Her August 24 performance in Philadelphia was also scrapped.
Her October 5 show at Music Hall Center in Detroit, MI, which was a rescheduled performance after the original date was postponed, was also canceled, according to Ticketmaster.
While it is unclear if low-ticket sales were the reason for the cancellations. She did struggle to fill seats for the Cleveland and Philadelphia shows, as two-third of tickets were still available.
The tour bomb came after trouble in her personal life and career.
Williams, 55, took a two-month hiatus from her talk show earlier this year after exhibiting odd behavior.
When she returned, she revealed she had been living in a sober home for her substance abuse issues. In March, she was hospitalized after leaving the sober house amid reports her husband Kevin Hunter's mistress, Sharina Hudson, gave birth to his child.
Williams filed for divorce from Hunter in April 2019.
She admitted in a bombshell interview with The New York Times that he had an affair with Hudson and even fathered a daughter with her.
Hunter has yet to confirm the allegations.
But fortunately for Williams, The Wendy Williams Show has been renewed through 2022.
