[quote]Long-term COVID-19 side effects could include memory loss and other cognitive dysfunctions commonly labeled as "brain fog," according to a study released that examined 740 patients in the Mount Sinai Health System.
[quote]The study, which was published Friday in the peer-reviewed medical journal JAMA Network Open, analyzed patients who contracted COVID-19, not people who only received the COVID-19 vaccine.
[quote]The most common cognitive deficits the study identified were memory encoding and memory recall, which showed up in 24% and 23% of the participants, respectively.
[quote]Memory encoding is the process of storing sensory input as a memory, such as storing a phone number in your head by repeating it out loud a few times. Memory recall refers to accessing memories that are stored already and retrieving them for use.
[quote]Other common side effects included processing speed (the time it takes someone to perform a mental task), executive functioning (associated with setting and completing goals), and phonemic and category fluency (the ability to come up with words based on certain criteria).

I'd never dare to wish ill to anyone (whilst I clutch my pearl necklace). But Wendy has been such a cunt for decades. She mellowed a bit once she got the TV show, but even then should be downright disrespectful and bitchy to her guests. She's also one of the most ill-prepared talk show hosts I've ever watched. She had guests calling her out all the time for her ignorant questions, whether it was about the project they were there promoting, or some gossip she was trying to call them out on. Vivica Fox owned her every single time she was on. They might as well take her name off the show, but her producers will leave it until she passes away and then they'll make a big deal of renaming it.

Sounds like a bad batch of designer synthetic Chinese drugs taken during the heat of passion of a relapse fresh out of recovery. The issue is most addicts take their usual tolerance dose of drug and forget they’re clean- and their body cannot handle the dose.
I’m really surprised her contracts don’t stipulate a drug test or maybe they’re afraid she’d sue them or the publicity would affect ratings if they insisted on one. She’s really been very lucky how it’s fallen so far and must have somebody right at the top rooting for her or some really good dirt she can blackmail them with!

The ratings did NOT go up when Sherri hosted they went up from what RERUNS of Wendy were doing. Wendy originals still got significantly better ratings than any of the guest hosts are, including Sherri. However, the ratings are holding up decently and not in freefall as some expected. Wendy would usually get like a 1.0, Sherri has gotten 0.8 while other guest hosts have gotten 0.7.
Although the show is not technically renewed for next year, with or without Wendy it will be. It still does batter than most other syndicated talk shows. The Real literally gets half the audience of current season Wendy with the guest hosts. What they do now really depends on her condition, which they have done a great job of keeping under wraps. I believe they'd like to have Wendy back if they can and if there will be some consistency going forward, although they can always count on guest hosts to fill in if she has to take off occasionally. Wendy's audience still loves her.

Mark my words, Wendy will be back! Her audience won't accept a permanent "replacement." If they scrap her they will need to put something completely different in her spot but unfortunately TV execs just aren't that creative anymore so it is less risky to keep her.

The show is doing fine without her (.8) but it does even better with her.(1.0) So she's in a pretty good position to take her sweet time coming back. The show with its current revolving slate of guest hosts is still tied for the 4th highest rated talk show behind only Ellen, Kelly And Ryan, and Kelly Clarkson. It gets more than triple the ratings of shows like The Real which manages to continue its run each year. So the status quo is more than acceptable to the producers, the affiliates who run the show, and Wendy herself, who continues to profit. So if she wants to take the whole year off she can and it will still come back next year, with or without her.

Well declining to renew her contract (which is up in a few months) isn't technically firing her. It's just the natural end of a multiyear contract. The closer we get to the end of the season without an announcement that contract has been renewed signals to me that it won't be renewed. In normal circumstances the renewal would have already taken place months ago.

Viewers loved the Wendy trainwreck because it felt real, authentic, unfiltered, raw, like we were getting closer to the real her. Who knew this was always just mental illness being used by the entertainment business to create a persona of a "real black woman." So many who are launching complaints against her profited from her mental health problems, which made her and the show highly entertaining and brought consistent viewership.

The poster that mentioned “no renewal mentioned yet is a bad sign” is correct. It’s likely a revised contract has LOTS of new contingencies that would cut Wendy off at the knees financially if she bailed on the show OR they are demanding regular drug tests as part of the agreement. Both sets of lawyers won’t give up any turf- they’ve been paying her lovely all along, why not mor?. A lot of it is about sidestepping privacy issues. They need to know her health specifics that is protected information. At this point they may also be revisiting royalty amounts paid out from any of her show’s future syndication rights.
I love Wendy in small doses but if I was payrolling her show I’d need to see a negative test every. single. week.

Oh yeah, TV producers want to tie themselves to train wrecks.
On the other hand, she could get hooked up with a real POS that wants to put cameras on someone who is a real hot mess and knows it will be probably only one season but it will get lots of publicity and could be a springboard to other opportunities.

I bet the show makes him correct her. They're like we can't have the bitch out here giving out misinformation. It used to only be occasionally, but in recent years he's had to correct her more and more. She acts like she has some form of dementia (she's probably just stoned all the time).
I bet Norman can't stand her. She always would talk about calling up Norman to go out on the weekend and then she'd look at him and say, "but I know you don't like going out." He would just sit there and smile. You KNOW he goes out. He just doesn't wanna go out with HER bitch ass! LOL
She probably should hang it up, but I think the network does not want to let her go. The longer she is out though, the easier it is going to be to replace her. People are fickle and out of sight is out of mind. The network should be concerned about losing the audience. The only reason they've held the audience this long is because it has always been kind of a shit show and people like that aspect of her show, but eventually, people will move on.

|by Anonymous||reply 250||January 30, 2022 12:08 PM|
I seriously would be surprised if the show is renewed again. I read that Wendy's contract runs out later this year (month?) and I feel like we may see a taped goodbye from Wendy in that final month. She'll plead health issues and that it was a good run but don't count her out for the future!
If she rallies, she could do a podcast or something from her home if she feels the need to stay active with the public.

It's 2022, if she wanted to stay active with the public, she could turn on her phone and post a video to social media today.
She's either in no shape to do that now or she knows that she's in no shape to do that now.

Wendy O Williams’ suicide note is my favorite letter. It’s astounding: “I don't believe that people should take their own lives without deep and thoughtful reflection over a considerable period of time. I do believe strongly, however, that the right to do so is one of the most fundamental rights that anyone in a free society should have. For me, much of the world makes no sense, but my feelings about what I am doing ring loud and clear to an inner ear and a place where there is no self, only calm.” Wendy O. Williams

At first I was open to her returning, but with the more time that passes, the clearer it becomes that she needs to hang it up. I hope she gets well and fades into the sunset. Her kind of bitchery is kinda OVER. The Wendy of even a few years ago is not the Wendy of today. She used to be badass. Now she seems like an often confused old lady stumbling over her script. It is not appealing.
These "shock jock" types pop up every once in a while and remain for a season. With Trump outta office and people trying to turn the page, it seems we are moving into a different phase now [at least I hope that is the case]. It's time to send Wendy packing. I'm over it.

The worst guest host is indeed Michael Rapaport. I can't even watch anymore when he is on. I wanted to like him but something about him just always rubs me the wrong way. I see him on twitter all the time flapping his gums and he sounds like a fool with his fake tough guy act. I'm not sure why he is so distasteful. Maybe it's the years of pandering to Black audiences (the Eminem of it all, except Rapaport has even less to offer to anyone) or maybe it is just his overall disingenuousness.

R323 That video of Wendy passing chronic intestinal gas through (mostly) burping dozens of times on air raises many medical questions. Does anyone who knows about the human body--any DL doctors or nurses or such--have any theory about why a woman would need to pass gas that often through burping loudly while talking on camera? Sometimes her burps are so sudden and fierce that she seems to be repressing the urge to vomit. What could cause this? My guess is extreme gastric bypass or a girdle that is entirely too tight. Does anyone have any theories? Could this be related to her sudden decline?

I am no doctor but most belching is caused by swallowing excess air. This air most often never even reaches the stomach but accumulates in the esophagus.

The only way a bank would do this was because someone contested or questioned withdrawls repeatedly or refused to acknowledge certain preauthorized transactions- like a regular cyclic mortgage payment for her ex husband, who may still be on several of her accounts. It’s a “he said, she said” and they have her on phone recordings doing errant things, like running up a bill and then not remembering and fighting the charges later.
Mehthinks that Wendy has a very complicated ball of finances entwined with her ex and family, or someone was running her finances while she was in recovery and she didn’t like how much they were spending.
|by Anonymous||reply 336||February 9, 2022 8:30 AM|
That sounds absolutely plausible R336.
The elephant in the middle of the room is that Wendy has some form of dementia. On her show she likes to get out there and riff despite having a teleprompter in front of her telling her exactly what to say. She probably can't see very well without glasses (which of course she won't wear). Norman has to constantly steer her back to the "script" because between not being able do see and forgetting the stories, she just makes stuff up. This is a problem for the show which has been getting worse and worse.
I am not sure whether Wendy is arguing with her family and representatives (who are probably NOT trying to take advantage of her dementia since I am sure it is well documented by now) or arguing with the bank about charges she authorized and forgot about, but the bank is having no parts of it. Wells Fargo doesn't care how she spends her money but they don't wanna get sued for disbursements of perhaps millions of dollars because Wendy can't remember. The bank is protecting themselves by freezing the account until they can get clarification.
Everyone is trying to protect Wendy's "image" but this has probably more to do with her slipping than anyone trying to take advantage of her.

While the surrogate was pregnant, Sherri and Lamar broke up and she said she had no responsibility for the kid. The courts disagreed and she's been paying child support, Lamar has the baby, I guess it's probably 6 or 7 years old now.

R338 I have never watched consistently but have "checked in" with the WW and watched her off and on over for years because a friend loves her. We've noticed a steep decline in her mental acuity in recent years. She completely fell apart her split with her husband [I don't think she ever put the crack pipe down but at this time she began using a lot more] and ended up in a "sober house." It has been all downhill since then. All her problems got worse.
She has always done the burping and farting. That complication tape at R323 is over several years. That is just her being a rude asshole.
Wendy talks a lot of shit, but her mind had always been sharp... until now. She was a catty bitch, but she was always a smart bitch! People hated her because she knew everyone's dirt and could rattle it off like she knew that shit personally. Now, not so much. She clearly has some form of dementia. She is very forgetful.

This first sign i noticed was in late 2018, wendy was talking about how it took her hours to commute home during treacherous weather in new york/ nj. She totally broke down on air and said the drive gave her time to think about her life, which we now know was full of personal drama. I think her behavior is the result of majorly distressing life events; divorce, empty nest, loss of her mother, in close sucession, combined with alcholism and health issues. A lot people totally lose it for a while after this stuff happens.

I remember the show when she broke down while describing her terrible ride home in the snowstorm. She did have a driver that day R361, and she bitched and wept about being "trapped" in a luxury car for several hours because of the traffic jams all through the tri-state. She made it such drama, all about HER, even after the stories of kids stuck on school buses for hours too.

r362 exactly, she did have a driver, she didnt say whether Kevin Sr. was with her while she was in the car for hours. But whatever happened in the car clearly took a toll on her (and Im not speaking about the weather). She must've been fighting with Kevin either in person or by phone. I was hoping this was included in her Lifetime movie last year but it wasn't.

Wendy Williams is still blocked from accessing millions she has held in her Wells Fargo account and no court date has been set for her to argue the case before a judge.
In the suit, Wendy claims she is being blocked from touching money in her account due to her ex-financial advisor Lori Schiller. Wendy says she started working with Lori in 2018. For more than two weeks, Wells Fargo has “denied [Wendy] any access, whether online or otherwise, to her financial accounts, assets, and statements based on the advisement” by Schiller that [Wendy] was of unsound mind.
The entertainer says she terminated Lori as her advisor due to “malfeasance in relation to [Wendy’s] accounts and” her improper conduct in relation to their professional relationship.” She says despite firing Lori, Wells Fargo continues to rely on her to make decisions for Wendy’s accounts. The suit says Wells Fargo told Wendy they also had to right to “pause of reject” any transaction should they suspect “financial exploitation, dementia or undue influence.”
“[Wells Fargo] is going beyond the scope of the authority granted by the provision because [Wendy] is completely denying Petitioner the ability to access or even view, whether online or otherwise, her financial assets and statements, which [Wells Fargo] has requested for the purpose of ascertaining the current standing of her accounts and which is not a “transaction” as contemplated under the Agreements,” the suit reads.

Looks like Wendy is stuck in paranoia right now.
She's suing Wells Fargo for something that's clearly in their contract to do. Freezing her account if they find themselves in a confusing situation. Wendy suddenly fired her financial advisor without getting a new one, The former financial advisor did their duty and informed Wells Fargo that Wendy's not thinking clearly right now.
Until this she said - she said situation is resolved, Wells Fargo is protecting Wendy's money. She just can't see anything clearly right now.

‘Incapacitated’ Wendy Williams needs a guardianship, ‘concerned’ bank claims
Wendy Williams is an “incapacitated person” who needs a guardianship, her bank claimed Thursday. Wells Fargo sent a letter to New York Supreme Court Judge Arlene Bluth requesting a hearing to determine whether Williams, who has not hosted her daytime talk show since July 2021 due to ongoing health issues, needs a professional to intervene in her affairs. “We are concerned about [Williams’] situation,” attorney David H. Pikus wrote on behalf of the bank in the letter, which Page Six obtained.

r379, I would agree but the staff needed to run her life is likely tiny compared to what it was 5-6 years ago when she was at her peak, doing the talk show, clothing line, guest appearances, etc. All of that ceased pre-pandemic. And most the people supporting her are likely paid by the show or whatever production she's doing anyway, without any ties to her personal funds.

A couple of times a month,, Wendy would talk about her manager Bernie, and tell how he went with her to this party or restaurant or show, etc. She made Bernie sound like her fairy godfather who was always at the side of his client to be her confidante/protector/chaperone. I'm surprised that he wasn't the one stepping up now and taking care of this mess going on now because she made it sound like he was her strong right hand.
Pure speculation: It would be so sad if this Bernie was the reason that Wendy's assets were frozen - he is a shyster and was one of those terrible people who are being devious and bleeding their client.

What caused this decline? It seems that people are suggesting she was into heavy drugs and got worse after her marriage fell apart. Is that it--dementia caused by drug use? Or did she already have a medical issue unrelated to drugs? Or is the purely mental illness?

r385 Wendy has had Graves disease for years. She has discussed her cocaine addiction in the 90s several times, and her alcoholism that got out of control once she began parting ways with her ex-husband. Wendy has had the same silicone implants in her body for over 25 years, she has been a lifetime yo-yo dieter, used questionable weight loss drugs that she promoted over the radio back in the day, and she had numerous miscarriages. All of that certainly has taken a huge toll on her body and mind which is now manifesting as she gets old.

R386 good run down, but a couple of corrections.
One, she has always maintained that her implants were saline and not silicone. I know that it is recommended that the silicone be swapped out at some point, but reports are conflicting on the saline implants.
Second, Wendy went to a "Sober house" for substance abuse while going through her divorce. She never disclosed what substances took her there.
It has been widely reported that Wendy is an alcoholic. It has also been rumored that she never totally gave up cocaine. We don't know what she is currently using.
The bottom line is that Wendy is having mental health problems and everything collectively or singularly (as they said) could have created the situation she is in. They all can feed on each other. I bet doctors don't know for sure. It is like the chicken and the egg. She is in bad shape and I don't think she will ever return to tv on a regular basis.

You may call it being bitchy, but some people would go to the next level and call it being hateful.

Also, her eyes change over the years. I thought she had strange eyes. Now, I know her eyes are a symptom of Graves disease, and I feel bad about thinking they were strange. People who suffer from this disease start to have eyes shaped like hers. Years ago, her eyes were normal. See the photos as proof. Also, in these photos you can see her weight changes and what seems to be Wendy under the influence of certain substances. She often doesn't even look like the same person.

The reason most people want karma for Wendy is that she LIED ABOUT HER OWN ISSUES, while badmouthing and clowning on other people in the same boat. She came on and berated her fans/viewers for even thinking that her marriage was in trouble when the gossip about her husbands having a side piece was circulating. She even pointed to her wedding ring and said something like "this is never coming off". She hid the fact that Kevin was having a child with another woman while roasting various celebs on their supposed marital problems. Besides the marriage hypocrisy, I remember her making fun of Dionne Warwick, saying something about her being heavily into weed, just a few months after Wendy herself had come back to the show after her stint in rehab.

Wendy Williams launched a brand-new Instagram account Wednesday with a video update on her whereabouts and well-being, but some of her fans are not buying what she’s selling.
“This video is a year old,” speculated one follower in the comments section.
“I believe this is an old video,” wrote another.
Eagle-eared fans noticed that Williams talked about her mother being in Florida, where the video was filmed, and also referred to herself as being 56 years old. However, Williams announced in December 2020 that her mother had died, and she is currently 57.

It is strange that the video doesn't reference anything recent to prove when it was shot.
Agree that Wendy should retire. She doesn't look completely healthy in video, but she does look happy. If she watches her money, she shouldn't have to work again. She came up in a young person's game anyway. No one wants to hear someone gossip about celebrities that are young enough to be your grandchildren.

B. Scott reports that her show will be canceled in June and replaced by Sherri Shepherd's talk show. B. Scott is pretty credible with breaking news like this. (He was the first to reveal the news that Regina King's son died from suicide).

Why do I think that if/when Wendy loses her show, that she will spiral into a sad, mad mess? I could see her going either two directions: being like those old washed up actresses Edy Williams or Sally Kirkland, showing up to places to get her picture taken, wearing something that shows too much skin for her age. Wendy at the BET Awards, looking for attention, in cut-off shorts and those boobs.
The second route is a modern version of Edie Beale, locked up in a place full of dusty junk and too many cats, going on social media with crazy rants.

r469, Wendy has BEEN a mess for years and years (she even had a Lifetime special about what a MESS her life is!)
I agree with r467, Wendy has not left a job in her life without drama. She is an old stunt queen and cannot make a graceful exit without causing a scene.
I was really hoping Wendy would be one to announce her departure and make a clean cut from the show, instead of a blogger breaking it. A nice recording could've aired on the show or via social media and she could just thanked everyone said she feels its time for a new chapter, or something like that. But no, she has decided to do this and create animosity, even though her ass has not worked a damn day all season.

Well, the world learned that Wendy didn't have a good man. The world learned that Wendy's marriage was essentially a sham. The career success, the motherhood, the breast implants, the wigs... nothing means nothing without being Mrs. Hunter. The little girl who was built like a football player has had life reaffirm her self concept (that she is unworthy of love).

A wrongful termination lawsuit by Wendy won't go very far. She has a show contract until June of this year. As per the contract, there will be a Wendy Williams show produced until then. She's welcome to come to the studio at any time before then. After that, they have zero obligation to produce a Wendy Williams show.
An expired contract is much different than a wrongful termination.

R499 I agree Sherri won't last. She is a good imitation but doesn't have anything original to present. And let's be honest, whether you like Wendy or not, in her prime, she was always smart and witty (even on the radio). When she came on TV she expanded her brand by creating a look that a lot of the Frau's (and gay men) wanted to emulate. She was long legged, with a small waist, big boobs, glamorous clothes and wigs. My point is she had a very recognizable brand. She was a product people wanted to consume.
On talk shows, acting gigs and even as a standup comic, Sherri has always been part of a pack. She has never been a lead or a standout. Maybe Sherri will surprise us, but I don't see any branding of her as a stand alone product. She is none of what Wendy has. Hopefully she will do her own thing. If she continues to be a "Knock off Wendy" she will be done before she starts.
That said, to compare Sherri Shepherd to Ross Matthews is a low blow indeed. It's apples and oranges. Not only will Ross always be a second banana, he is annoying as fuck! His voice is like nails to a chalk board. Him as a standout attraction is laughable. As Grace Adler (Will and Grace) would say, "He will always be the coleslaw on the side that nobody wants. He will never be the hamburger."

Wendy had the gift of being able to turn the most mundane celeb stories into juicy gossip. She was on the radio by herself a lot of days, gossiping for 5 hours straight during afternoon drive time. Sherri is a comedian by design and she is more down to earth and more like a girlfriend type, so I think the audience will find her more relatable.
And unlike Wendy, Sherri will be able to book many guests which Wendy's show struggled with. Sherri has good relationships with most of Hollywood; she wont need to fill up a whole hour with hot topics if she has two guests every show.
|by Anonymous||reply 509||February 26, 2022 11:52 AM|
R508 The problem is "Sherri's Schtick" is mostly Wendy's "Schtick." She needs to find her own lane. People miss Wendy, so to see Sherri "imitate" her was like comfort food, but that will eventually wear thin. She is no longer just a seat warmer. It's time for her to produce or she'll be outta there.
Wendy is all about the gossip, but I don't ever see Sherri being full on "MEAN" to celebrities. Unlike Wendy, Sherri comes from that world. She is gonna wanna curry favor with those people for future acting gigs.
The era of "Joan Rivers style" of dragging celebrities is kinda over because most people can't do it effectively. That's a skill to talk shit to someone's face and not have them walk out or physically attack you. Wendy did that! Everyone is scared to even talk about anyone unless they have a video. And even then, they limit their comments to specifically what is on video for fear of being sued. People liked Wendy's gossip, because of HOW she presented the gossip. If she was interviewing a celebrity she would ask the shitty and embarrassing questions that her audience was thinking (the kinda questions legit journalists were afraid to ask because they wanted to maintain access to the star). And when discussing a celebrity's situation, she didn't need a video. With a few pictures she could create an entire backstory of what is "really" happening. LOL Nowadays viewers are savvy enough to find all the gossip online, but what they want is Wendy's take on it. In her prime, Wendy's take was always smart and funny. She worked hard to perfect that schtick. It's not easy or everyone would do it. Very few people can pull that off.
Although, Wendy was famous for the gossip, her real strength was "Ask Wendy" where she gave the audience, often very good and common sense, advice.
Wendy brought a lot to that show. Sherri will need to find her own schtick. We'll see...

And sometimes r510, she did it without a picture. I loved when she would say such and such picture was too expensive, so let me just tell you what's going on it and you can look it up for yourself.
And Wendy also always had the most eclectic celebrity fans, people you would be shocked who actually tuned into her everyday. I remember when she faned out because she had the Oakridge Boys in her audience. They weren't guests. They just came to see her. And to put it succinctly, one of these eclectic celebrity's moms was a fan of her show and he asked his mom, "Do you even care about (put in any obscure D List Hip Hop Star)?" His mother responded, "No, I don't care about them, I only care what WENDY has to say about them."
Wendy was a breath of fresh air from the overly upbeat, manic cheerfulness that you get from other talk show hosts. And it wasn't just about mean things. She came across as a real person. If she was tired, she let you know. If she didn't care about a topic, she let you know. If she never wanted to talk about someone again, she would let you know. She called Kanye "The Madman" just as a matter of course. She laid out plain and clear her beef with people, like detailing exactly how her and Nene Leakes fell out a second time and for good. And when she was wrong about someone she admitted it - actually eating prepared crow on live TV when she was wrong about how long Kim and Kanye's marriage would last.
She kept random celebrities names in the Zeitgeist just because she was fans of theirs. Who remembers when she named some hallway in the staff offices "Heather Locklear Way" - actually had a sign made and everything? She was in love with Shia LaBeouf, against her better judgment, saying of such bad boys, "He looks like he'd slam you on the bed, choke you out and do you dirty.... You like what you like..." Who says that on morning TV? It was truly a wild, crazy, fun roller coaster ride and I'll miss her terribly.

I remember Wendy on the radio spilling tea on John Edwards' affair/love child when he was running for President, that news didn't even hit the networks yet. She found that info from some obscure tabloid and it all turned out to be true weeks later. Part of Wendy's appeal back then was that she wasn't mainstream; she could talk big shit about big names, they had no idea who she was so she could talk as reckless as she wanted too.

Apparently, you have never watched the show. She goes to great lengths to be as "glamorous" as possible with all the expensive wigs and latest fashions. You're crazy if you think she didn't have a look (and attitude) that many women (and men wanted to emulate).
WTF are you talking about that Wendy is not a glamor goal. Are you totally unaware of her relationship with her audience and glamor?
Wendy gives fashion advice and the Frau's eat it up. There is a whole segment of her show (Trendy at Wendy) where Wendy has merchants marketing their wares (such as Ru La La) just to get Wendy's endorsement!
The Frau's would bring clothes to the show for her and send her shit in the mail to wear. You don't understand the whole Wendy Williams experience. You are talking out of your ass about things you know nothing about.
You don't have to like her (and obviously you don't), but you are seriously misguided or deliberately lying on this point. Wendy Williams has many many fans which has kept that show on the air for over a decade!

It was announced that the Wendy staff will all be hired on to work on Sherri's show, but I'll be curious to see if Norman still be sitting in his little nook when that happens. Lucky for him, he's been kept on during all the guest hosts, popping in with helpful facts and adding to the proceedings. When the show turns over, will they: get rid of him because they want everything fresh and original to Sherri; 2) keep him on for the old school Wendy fans, as he's become a well-liked staple to the show and the nostalgia of that will get those viewers to tune in.
The same situation may extend to Suzanne - will she be Sherri's 2nd banana, getting the audience to clap and hoot, maybe fade into the background in some office, or will Sherri be bringing in her own people? I stopped watching months ago and don't plan on tuning in for Sherri, but I do have a little soft spot for the folks who put up with Wendy's crap for 14 years... that's the only reason this thought came up.

Judging by Sherri's and Norman's social media activity, they're always commenting on each other's pages, so it looks like they've become close friends. The same with Suzanne. Suzanne and Norman seem to be relieved that Sherri is the one replacing Wendy. You don't get the same walking-on-eggshells energy from them when Sherri is hosting. I can't see Sherri firing them.

I will never forget the episode when Sheryl Underwood was a guest host, and she got into it with DL Fav, Prophetess Juanita Bynum. TV gold! BET is stupid for scrubbing all of those clips and episodes of the show from YouTube.

r541 yesss I hope that episode resurfaces one day. BET has SLOWY been releasing video from 106 & Park on their Youtube channel. BET is a shell of what it was back then in the 2000s when they were driving culture. They have so much epic content like Aaliyah making her last music video, all that stuff they can release now on digital streams. Wendy's show was reaired on BET at night for a time but I think that stopped at some point in the last couple years.

What ever her true diagnosis is, she is only adding massive and unnecessary damage to her body from drug abuse. She is far too old to be abusing drugs. She is at the age when the years of drug abuse start really kicking your ass. Pay the piper time or quit now, if it isn't too late.
|by Anonymous||reply 543||March 3, 2022 3:53 AM|
R543 Agreed, she is killing herself. I am sure if Wendy "felt" she could stop abusing drugs, she would. By now she is surely addicted (probably to many things) and we know that addiction is a disease. Sometimes it takes people hitting rock bottom to begin, in earnest, doing the work manage their addictions. She has pretty much lost everything at this point. Hopefully this will give her the willpower to turn things around. She may not get another chance.

The most shocking part is Wendy Williams had zero control on her own talk show. Before the syndicated talk show, Wendy Williams was a very successful DJ in NY and surroundings and for many years. You would assume she knew a thing or two about branding and creative control. Nada! She knows nothing, or she only read the salary figure and ignored everything else in her contract. The production company owns the show, her brand name and even her IG account, she had to register a new IG account to get her voice heard. 🙄😳

I think Norman and Suzanne and the general format of the show will remain. Primarily because the producers and affiliates know that they need to capture the majority of Wendy's audience to succeed. Its not as if there's a whole seperate group of Sherri fans that can replace the current viewers. They want to make the transition as easy as possible for viewers, not bombard them with a whole new format and players. Sherri has shown that she slots in very smoothly to the current format. therefeore the usual suspects will continue to contribute in addition to Suzanne and Norman, Their attitude will be well if you cant have Wendy herself, we're giving you the Wendy Show with next best thing to Wendy, which is Sherri.
Second, what "new" would they do with Sherri that's better than what they have now? Look at the mess of Nick Cannons show to see what Debmar is/isn't capable of. Besides some superficial changes (new theme song, refreshed set sans purple chair etc.) the attitude will be if it ain't broke don't fix it.

1. It’s extremely rare that the wealthy truly hit bottom with hard enough consequences to get sober- because they always have the velvet lining of money. 2. Wendy’s core personality is one of rebellion, denial, no accountability, pushing right up to the edge, not caring about what people think. 3. Money also makes people delusional about their true worth, accomplishments, volition and motives- she didn’t get where she was by herself. 4. I’m pretty sure even if she worked through these issues, people wouldn’t like or buy into the sober version of Wendy.
These are all aspects of Wendy working against her, the truth is she has to get out of her own way.

R549 Anybody can hit rock bottom since that means different things to different people. If you're talking about her going broke, that is highly unlikely. People like Wendy usually don't grow broke anymore. Besides her having multiple side hustles, she also has mechanisms in place (as indicated by the Wells Fargo debacle) to prevent her from destroying her finances.
Wendy is very arrogant. For her to lose her mother, her marriage and her hit tv show all in the manner of a few years has got to be a serious blow to the ego of someone like Wendy. She has got to be pretty shaken up over all this. Will it be enough to make her give up the drugs? It should be, but probably not. This is not her first stint in rehab. Drug addictions are very hard to get under control. I guess, time will tell.

Even a podcast would require Wendy to do some work. Sure, she can have assistants do all the research and preparation, but then she has to show up and do her part. And I don't think that hot mess Wendy is able to do even that long term. Sure, at first she will show up and, like Trump, she will ramble on and on about how she was pushed out of her own show by backstabbing bitches. And that might be entertaining, but - if you look at Nene Leakes and how she dealt with her being fired from Real Housewives - how long can she milk that without the audience realizing that she's not moving on and not offering something new?

Being tight with money for a gay just means you spend selfishly. You spend it on things important to YOU! Sex is very important to the gays. Norman makes plenty of money. Being on TV, I am sure he'd pay for it to keep his name out of the tabloids.

Very true. Steven King hit rock bottom when looking at his huge recycling pile. He was a beer alcoholic and would recycle his beer bottles or cans.
But it's also true that being rich insulate you from consequences and lower your "rock bottom." You've got private places (rather than the streets) to do your drugs in peace. You can use a middle man to buy your drugs. You're not out hooking (which is illegal) to get money to buy your drugs. Etc.

R567 You are missing my point. Hitting "rock bottom" is not necessarily about wealth. Rich people and poor people OD every day.
Wendy Williams (or Stephen King) is never going to be poor. While her wealth insulates her from a lot of the problems "normal" people experience, it doesn't insulate her from drug addiction. These demons can (and do) affect anyone.
The "losses" experienced to make someone hit rock bottom have to be extreme enough (in their mind) for a realization that drugs are destroying your life AND the DESIRE to make a change.
Plenty of lawyers, doctors and professors are on the streets homeless and looking for their next fix.
Are Wendy's losses (in her mind) extreme enough to see the damage she is doing AND does she have the desire to change? Only time will tell.

R546 wendy is not unique in that sense, almost all talkshows are owned by a seperate production company and distributed by others. Wendy was at the mercy of program directors when she was on radio. She still has her personal brand and talent that she has also sold for years. Wendy had tons of talkshows offers thrown at her in the 90s and 2000s, she definitely knows her stuff and got out of this what she wanted. Nothing lasts forever.

When I would go to the Crunch after work on 23rd St between 7th and 8th, I would see Norman sometimes coming in and out. As someone said above, he is not nearly famous enough for anyone to really care about to print dish on his sex life. The sexual peccadilloes of an openly gay man in NYC is hardly news fodder. He would have to be caught stealing something from Bergdorf's or sleeping with a more famous married man for anyone to pay attention. I have seen Suzanne several times headed to the Penn Station LIRR. She makes the Long Island commute on the train just like everyone else who works in the city.

A lot of artists BELIEVE they own their own product (show, music, character, etc.), because that's what they are being led to believe by their own management. Then it turns out the celebrity is just a glorified employee and the management is making all the money, because they are the ones owning all the legal rights.
A lot of times when celebs self-destruct, it's when they find out that they do not own their own brand.

Sherri won't last. One thing I can't stress enough that was rare about the Wendy show was that the show was not about "liking" Wendy. Every other morning show has this manic, upbeat energy were the whole premise is that you must like the host. Wendy was just who she was, take it or leave it. And her talent, personality type was such that many more people liked her than didn't. She modeled herself after Howard Stern. Even though they had their ups and downs with each other, Wendy always paid respect to Howard Stern and how he influenced her own career, and to speak your mind whether or not people like what you are saying about a certain topic. Wendy never pandered to her audience to garner their favor. The woman burped regularly AND farted occasionally on national morning TV. We always remember the terrible things she said about people, but she said a lot of really nice things, surprisingly encouraging things that helped people's careers. She would champion someone until they were a success. James Meeks, "The Hot Model," said he wouldn't be anywhere if it wasn't the way Wendy picked up the story and said he should be modelling. She didn't discover him, but she shined a huge light on him and made people look. Jerry O'Connell of all people thanks the uptick of his career thanks to her support of him. There are many others. Because she noticed these people, we noticed them. She booked Justin Bieber on her show way before anyone else would - and talks disdainfully about that experience. She gave a huge platform to people who otherwise wouldn't have had one just because she liked them and wanted to meet and talk with them.
