Wendy Williams gave a quick update on her health while strolling barefoot out of a Miami wellness center in a robe as rumors continue to swirl that producers are replacing her on her namesake talk show.
In a video obtained by The Shade Room, the 57-year-old held onto her driver's arm as he guided her to the SUV. Wearing zero makeup, The Wendy Williams Show star looked like she was on the mend but still weak after suffering a health scare months ago.
Sporting no shoes on the hot pavement, Wendy made the surprising move to wear a plush red Versace robe in the 80-degree weather.
Walking slowly out of the Miami wellness center, Wendy jumped in the car and ignored the paparazzi's question about her talk show being canceled. She did give him an update on her health, talking in the third person while revealing, "Wendy is doing fabulous!"
While her movements may have been leisurely, her sass was right on point.
When the paparazzo asked if Wendy had any words for her fans, the talk show legend promised this wasn't the end of her. "Much more Wendy stuff," she teased before riding off.
As Radar exclusively reported, The Wendy Williams show producers are no longer looking for a guest host — they are searching for a full-time replacement.
Michael Rappaport, Leah Remini, and Sherri Shepherd have all stepped in to host the show while Wendy continues to battle health issues. it's worth nothing that ratings have been soaring since Wendy's absence and producers are noticing it too.
“No-one expected ratings to go up 32% without Wendy. The fill-in hosts were just supposed to keep the shows lights on until Wendy was well enough to return," an insider told Radar. "It was assumed that without Wendy, the audience would not watch, but the has not been the case. In fact, when Sherri Shepherd took over she not only retained all of Wendy’s fans but also brought in a whole new audience too. This is why the search has changed from finding a temporary replacement to a full-time one."
The Ricky Smiley Morning Show’s Toine The Don, also known as Antoine Edwards also claimed Wendy is now confined to a wheelchair, something she put the kibosh on in Miami earlier this week.
