It was confirmed on Thursday that Wendy Williams will be taking a hiatus from her talk show throughout the month of February.

Although Williams has not been fired from the show, there is no exact set date as to when she will return.

Williams, a popular talk show host and personality, has been battling health issues over the past few years. She has not appeared in any of her season 13 episodes thus far, and due to past breaks from the show, is not expected to host the remainder.

Who are the February guest hosts for the Wendy Show?

The Wendy Show confirmed on Thursday that guest hosts will include rappers Fat Joe and Remy Ma, comedian Michael Rapaport, Bevy Smith, Terrence J, and Sherri Shepherd.

Michael Rapaport will start off the month from January 31st-February 4th.

Fat Joe & Remy Ma will then take the reins from February 7th-11th, followed by Bevy & Terrence J taking over from the 14th-18th.

After that, Shepherd will step in from the 21st through the 25th, and Rapaport will return to finish from February 28th until March 4th.

It is still unclear what state of health Williams is currently in. One of her reps recently stated the speculations about her health are “inaccurate” and dismissed rumors about her never returning to her show.
