“How dare they think they can just toss aside a black woman who created all this and replace her with a white woman. Pushing out Wendy and replacing her with Leah Remini or Whitney Cummings is a disgrace,” adds a staffer. “The management team might be all-white, but we are not going to let them disrespect Wendy like this.”

“Who the host is changes everything about the show. From the people we dish about in hot topics to the fashion and the celebrity guests. Luckily Bevy Smith has a big mouth and a lot of friends in the media including black gossip writer Carlos Greer,” adds a show insider. “If they think we are going to sit quiet and say nothing as they turn The Wendy Williams show in Rachel Ray, they are crazy. It is our duty to keep the show black.”
