Staffers at The Wendy Williams Show are scrambling to find new gigs as they fear the chatfest will be replaced by one helmed by substitute host Jerry O’Connell, sources told Spiel News..com exclusively.
When the Kangaroo Jack star filled in for troubled Wendy as she dealt with drug and marriage woes, he scored big ratings!
“Wendy has one season left on her contract, and the show may not be renewed,” a source snitched. “They’re testing out Jerry as a replacement. The rats are deserting the sinking ship!”
As Radar previously reported exclusively, Williams, 55, was begging for her estranged husband Kevin Hunter to be her business manager again to save the show from cancellation.
A source snitched Williams is “deeply insecure about her own success.”
Earlier this month, reports claimed show staffers have been looking for new jobs following rumors Season 11 will be the last.
As Radar readers know, Season 10 has been filled with scandals and multiple hiatuses.
She took a two-month hiatus from the show after exhibiting bizarre behavior.
She then revealed she has been living in a sober house. She was allegedly rushed to the hospital after relapsing on alcohol in March 2019.
She then filed for divorce from her husband in April after he allegedly had an affair and fathered a love child with mistress Sharina Hudson.
Since then, Williams has been enjoying single life by partying with a bevy of boy toys.
