Charlamagne Tha God is a well-wisher of Wendy Williams. In February, it was revealed that The Wendy Williams Show would terminate after its 13th season due to the host’s long-term medical leave. E! News Daily Pop exclusively spoke with Charlamagne on his old mentor’s daytime TV future, and he is hopeful she will make a comeback.
“Can she make a comeback? I mean yeah, God willing,” Loni Love and Adam Rippon of Daily Pop spoke with the radio and TV host on July 27. “Will she? I don’t know. I would hate to see her go out this way, only because she’s been so great for so long.”
After being diagnosed with COVID-19 in September of 2021, Wendy took a hiatus from the show. However, due to her lingering health concerns, the start of season 13 was postponed. In February, it was revealed that Sherri Shepherd would take over as a permanent guest host, and on September 12th, her new daytime series Sherri will debut in its place.
According to sources, it does not matter what people think about Pharrell Williams because she has had a significant impact on the entertainment industry. In an interview, he remarked, “She’s one of the most successful media personalities of all-time,” “not just from radio, but to make a move to television and do 13 seasons of a daytime chat show as a Black woman, that is enormous.” ”
They have had a rough relationship for a long time. Charlamagne was fired by Wendy Williams’ ex-husband Kevin Hunter in 2008 after developing a close friendship as her second mic on The Wendy Williams Experience radio show due to a “bad business deal,” which he revealed in his 2017 book Black Privilege.
Her split from Kevin also caused Wendy to deny ever having met him in an interview with Elvis Duran in 2014. Aside from all that, Charlamagne stated in March 2019 that he was the one who introduced Kevin to Sharina Hudson. Divorce proceedings between Wendy and Kevin were finally concluded in January of 2020.
Although the two have now reconciled, Charlamagne admitted in December 2021 that they had not communicated in years on Andy Cohen’s Sirius XM show Radio Andy that they had not spoken in years.
“I just hate the fact that she—I don’t want to say going out this way because we don’t know if it’s the end,” Charlamagne said in an interview. “But I would hope that this is not the ending. I would hope that she gets healthy and gets to bounce back and bow out the way she wants to.”
Charlamagne will come back on Comedy Central for a new season of his late-night talk program Hell of a Week, even if Wendy doesn’t. The show was originally dubbed Tha God’s Honest Truth, but the 44-year-old explained the cause behind the show is name change heading into season two of the reality show.
“Because the white executive at Viacom and Comedy Central said Hell of A Week would be more appealing,” he joked. “It also was because they cut the checks and they do this. They do the focus blogs and they do the research, and they said, ‘This title sounds more like a weekly late-night talk show for our audience.’ And, you know, I wanna win, so I’m not gonna fight it.”
