Friend to the show and host of Fox’s The Masked Singer and MTV’s Wild n’ Out, @nickcannon will be guest hosting The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, February 4th, Tuesday, February 5th & Wednesday, February 6th. The new hour long episodes will include Wendy’s staple Hot Topics segment, “Ask Wendy,” celebrity interviews and more!
Wendy has OFTEN gushed about her love of Nick Cannon and he is a FRIEND of the show, so he should fit in JUST FINE.
As Wendy Williams continues to focus on her well-being, Nick Cannon will be temporarily filling in for the host on her daytime talk show.
The Wendy Williams Show announced Tuesday that Cannon, 38, will be guest-hosting the program early next month, from Feb. 4-Feb. 6. This should be no STRETCH for the VETERAN tv personality, and YES his stint will INCLUDE Wendy’s now INFAMOUS ‘HOT TOPICS’ segment.
I am HERE for this. If we can’t have the MEDIA MAVEN herself, why not the BLACK Ryan Seacrest!? As we PATIENTLY wait for Wendy to make a full recovery, we WELCOME Nick in the IN BETWEEN time.
Earlier this month, Williams’ family announced that she was still recovering from her fractured shoulder and also had to be hospitalized as a result of symptoms from her Graves’ disease.
“Despite her strong desire to return, she is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being,” the statement read.
Soources close to the show say they are planning a HUGE welcome back show and Wendy is EAGER to be back at 100%!
“Staff at [Williams’] show are eager to get back to work. We are all hoping she is well. The mood at the set is good … We just want Wendy to get better.”
GET WELL Wendy, but in the meanwhile we look forward to Nick Cannon in the PURPLE CHAIR!
