Wendy Williams attends The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women

Wendy Williams announced Wednesday’s segment of her popular daytime talk show, The Wendy Williams Show, has been canceled. A rerun will air on Feb. 14 instead.

Insiders say Wendy canceled her Valentine’s Day show because she couldn’t bear to tape the show (and be her usual bubbly self) while her husband, Kevin Hunter, is pulling double duty with another woman.

Wendy’s official reason for canceling Wednesday’s show is she’s ill with the flu. The flu is certainly going around New York, and it is nothing to joke about. People have died from the flu in the New York area.

But is the flu really the reason why she stayed home today?

Wendy Williams attends The American Heart Association's Go Red For Women

By now everyone knows Wendy’s husband splits his time between her home and the home of his longtime mistress Sharinda Hudson, a 32-year-old massage therapist. The two have been openly dating for over 10 years.

Last September, Wendy ordered Kevin to dump his mistress, or else. She even (allegedly) leaked a story exposing Kevin’s infidelity to London’s Daily Mail newspaper.

But Kevin and Sharinda are reportedly still going strong. Which leaves Wendy brokenhearted and alone on Valentine’s Day.

Wendy’s depression is reportedly taking a toll on her health.

As you know, Wendy fell out on the set last October. At the time, she blamed dehydration and menopause for her fainting spell. But others say she staged the stunt to force Kevin to pay more attention to her.

Wendy has confided in friends that she doesn’t know how much longer she can tape her popular daytime talk show. Rumors are swirling that 2018 is her show’s final year.

Take care of yourself Wendy. You are Loved and adored by millions of women who are captivated by your buoyant personality and cheerful confidence.

    Well if this is true the no one deserves it more than Wendell because she is a fountain of negativity.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    She seems a little off lately. At the VERY end of the show on Monday I thought she was going to fall again. She was in the audience, credits were rolling, and she ever so slightly stumbled backwards two steps. Reminded me of how she stumbled before she fainted.

  • NeverSurprised

    I like her, but she is her own worst enemy. She has allowed Kevin to humiliate her all these years, now she is afraid she will be alone if she kicks him to the curb. Better to be alone than a public laughingstock. Also, she is rich enough that she can find another companion. After all, Kevin is only with her for the money, so why not find a more discrete paid companion?

  • Yardgirl

    I thought she was going to do the “love connection” segment with the single male hottie that’s looking for love?

  • HelloToni

    Maybe drugs???

  • 100milesperhour

    I don’t think it’s fear of being alone, that’s happening now in the marriage. If she files, she’ll be giving him exactly what he wants. She knows he’ll be happy w/someone else w/all that $ she’ll have to cough up.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Sending love to everyone …. ? Remember love is expressed everyday not just this one day. … and if you knew the true dark history behind Valentine’s Day. .. you would love on your kids even more … nevertheless much love .. to everyone ???

  • imright

    ? i think Wendy’s back gettin high !!! Vegan my ass !!! ???

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    No, that fall was not staged. You could see the fear & confusion in her eyes.

  • Kanyade

    Well wishes to Wendy. The flu is a beast this season. Happy Valentime’s Day to y’all :)

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Hi jenie be easy today

  • Ebony Starr

    I was in the audience recently and seemed very unsteady as she walked through the audience. I am worried about her health.

  • datATLboi

    Old Wendy would say, “IF HE’S DOING YOU WRONG…..BAIL”….I miss radio Wendy

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    Most with 20/20 vision miss her radio days.

  • Sabrina

    Wishing you the best through all your going through. But you would need to tighten up and figure it out quickly Wendy.. You give medicine on a daily now it’s time for you to swallow your own dose and handle your empire. You created and worked hard for this. No more ultimatums. Tell that piece of crap exactly what it is and make a decision. Better alone than being the brunt of the joke and those two enjoying the fruits of your labor…

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Most people are good at giving solid relationship advice when it involves another person… but arent that good at following that same kind of advice when they’re in the situation themselves.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Well in that case it makes sense to just cut your losses, make a clean break and start fresh… instead of letting this man play you like a fool in your own house.

  • Ela

    I watched the show for the first time in a long time and Wendy is definitely dealing with some health issues.

  • Evillene

    “Take care of yourself Wendy. You are Loved and adored by millions of women who are captivated by your buoyant personality and cheerful confidence.”

    Umm…that’s a stretch. She is negative, judgmental, disparaging, insecure and purposefully messy. We wont miss her much.

  • NeverSurprised

    Exactly. For me, the worst part would be knowing he paid for the woman’s $800k house with money he made off of MY hard work. Sorry, but his behind would be gone. Let the lawyers start working on settlement terms sooner rather than later. (Then blackball Kevin so he can”t get another high-paying job in the industry.)

  • Kemi

    Speedy recovery! Not my favorite but wish you well!

  • Kemi

    Happy Valentine’s Day ????

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Valentine’s Day in the Brown’s house:

    Me: Happy Valentines Day bae but my love for you is 24/7/365

    Him: Happy V day baby. You deserve all my love. Got paid today, money is on the table. Don’t go crazy paying all the bills at once. Treat yourself.

    Me: Thank you baby, there isn’t anything I really need or want that I don’t already have. Have a good day at work. Love you.

    The End

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Happy Valentine’s Day, my Rosebud family and thanks Ms. @Sandrarose for doing your job. ???~ So, Wendy is actually the gf/sp? She got the weekend before the actual holiday Kevin; They took the trip to HSN; but, the “family friend” will have him today… (and tonight)? Allegedly. Woooow. *Flavor Flav’s voice*

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    girl over here eating up this sketti breakfast ??

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    She need to eat and out some meat on then bones..she is so NOT SEXY….SHE IS BECOMING JOAN RIVERS!

  • Tammie Reed
  • davine puddin

    She probably don’t want to pay alimony to a cheater…cheaper to keep him

  • MythCalledLove

    I can understand her sadness. Some may say her chickens have come home to roost. But I think Wendy was flying so high during those early years. She changed her outside but unless you fix what’s going on within. You are alive but your not living. She built her life around this Prince Charming (She thought so). Trying to do everything and anything to keep him. But he was not with her for love. I think he is the reason her son is disrespectful to her. She needs to call Iyanla Vanzant. She doesn’t even have to be on her show (although I would love to see it)

  • kkkjinx

    Well damn I always look forward to getting off work, taking a shower, rolling up one, and watching Hot Topics on youtube. Now wtf am I suppose to do tonight WENDY!!! Guess I might as well give my man some smfh

  • Passion

    I was wondering why she advertised today’s show and then it was a repeat.

  • Passion

    How sweet!

  • Marie L.

    I don’t feel a bit sorry for Wendy. She trashes other people’s marriages all the time and sticks her nose in other people’s business all the time. This is what she gets. You do dirt you get dirt.

  • KcoolMuziq
  • MythCalledLove

    I hate that lil diaper wearing bow carrying flying bastard..lol

  • Dowoop

    Her husband isnt pulling double duty. He will be with the other woman period.

  • Yardgirl

    I agree, you cannot fake that look that was in her eyes!

  • Tiff J

    I hope not. She already battled with that demon years ago. Would hate to find out she fell off the wagon.

  • Yardgirl

    God Speed Wendy!! Her reps are saying she has the flu and will be off today and tomorrow. She seemed fine yesterday but the flu can come on suddenly and severely so could be true, dunno *kanye shrug*

  • Damnshame

    Wendy Williams is obviously coked up cause she look high as hell on this pic and got that white ish all ovr.her jacket.

  • NeverSurprised

    You must mean cheaper to keep BOTH of them. He bought the woman an $800k house with money that Wendy essentially earned through her hard work. Sorry but he needs to go. No way would I keep subsidizing BOTH their lifestyles.

  • Dee

    Karma dealt this ugly woman a fatal blow, she looks horrible ??

  • mona q

    I don’t know. Why sit around being depressed and having it affect your health. Your kid is old enough. He will get over it. Send the negro packing and let the other one have him. We all know how you get him is how you will lose him if it isn’t right.

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    Awww you guys… be nice. She’s still a woman. Her actions have probably been out of her being hurt.

  • LeXx

    Curious! Sandra who writes these post, you, intern, a person w nothing better to do,homeless person WHO??? Nowadays all of these write ups have been OPINIONS and ASSUMPTIONS….. This entire write up abt Wendy Williams was so extra n blah with no supporting facts. Just like the Malia Obama post yesterday…. So just saying she cancelled bc of the fly was sufficient ,you or someone bring up her husband but y’all haven’t called or spoke to her…..sigh ????

  • Yup, I said it

    Being messy will cause you to be depressed and alone. Wendy is one of those women who put all their value and self worth into being married and having a husband. Dont do that

  • Quitedeliteful

    Just goes to show that money and fame aren’t everything. Wendy needs to cut off access to her money. Make him squire around his jump-off on whatever salary he earns. Do like rich folks do and put money in off shore accounts then hire a pit bull lawyer and divorce him. There is nothing sadder than loving a man who doesn’t love you. It drove a friend of mine to become an alcoholic…

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I dont wish bad on anybody or their marriage, but I do get your point though.
    Sometimes what goes around comes around.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I hope Kevin at least gives her a box of chocolates….

  • Quitedeliteful

    Your man gonna get lucky tonight!!! LMBAOFFFFF!!!! (I love Hot Topics too.)

  • Shawty

    She cancelled her show today to spend Valentines Day with her hubby. Why do we automatically think negative things. For all we know, they at their spa day with fun festivities to follow. I guess the negative things gets the story read….smh. Happy Valentines Day to all!

  • Quitedeliteful

    So Nice!!! He loves you and lets you know that he loves you. Money already on the table and you get to spend some of it on yourself!!! (Does he have a brother?)


    That’s why she tried the fainting number again yesterday. KARMA WENDY KARMA -tell the world HOW YOU DOING

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Shawty

    Cracking up over here. Still do all those things mama, but make him your Hot Topic tonight. Have fun!

  • Shawty

    And I’d be telling the judge, his side chick house is his alimony…giggles

  • kkkjinx

    I was gonna wait til we see black panther friday to give him some black girl magic but I’ll give him a piece tonight. He can thank Wendall lol.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Awwh, give him a pass. He’s working hard serving double duty. He’s spreading love and plus he’s my birthday mascot. I’ ve said my prayers and now I’m going to be bend my wrist to celebrate my time on earth in 5… 4… 3… ? ??

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    The same to you!

  • Quitedeliteful

    It’s not just about the money for Wendy. I think she really loves this fool. She’s been with him forever and she enjoys being married and flaunting those diamonds on her left hand…

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    4 sisters. Maybe that’s why! Thank you ?Happy V day

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Thank you ? happy v day

  • MsPam

    Naw, she said VD was cheesy!

  • SweetTEE

    There is obviously something seriously wrong with Wendy health-wise. She looks like she needs an Ensure and her skin is uber ashy. Its kinda sad to look at.

  • Lolly Asher

    She isn’t into those kinds of holidays and she rarely calls off. She’s likely really ill. Not saying her man doesn’t have someone else but she’s not messing up her career b/c of it.

  • nomika brown

    Wendy has talked about people her whole life and have hit people below the belt which I think is so unnecessary it’s one thing to base your whole career on taking about people but why do you have to hit people below the belt I will never understand that but what comes around goes around Wendy you have to do better you don’t seem to be happy with yourself

  • Disgusting Wendy

    This woman is so ugly, inside and out. I’m sure that’s the root of her issues. This might sound horrible but I don’t care. I wound rather have a pretty daughter than a smart one. She has no self esteem and looking like the brawny man never helped. She is vicious and disingenuous, she doesn’t even know how to be kind. I don’t feel sorry for her. I can’t. She deserves to salvage the rest of her life, however. She should become a better person, drop the loser husband, remove the implants and the blonde wigs, embrace being a black woman, and for the love of everything holy, eat. Good luck, sis.

  • Aww

    Aww. That’s awesome. That’s what love is all about. Not a show, but love, and genuinely appreciating your life and your spouse. I’m thinking of that Alicia Keys song, If I Ain’t Got You.

  • Lainy

    She has graves disease people and if we the world hated her so bad she would not have gotten to this many seasons on the air. She must be doing something right. And I dont think she is really phased by her husband they been together a long time and she is the money maker so if she really wanted to say kick rocks she would have …

  • Renee26

    She probably bought those rings herself

  • Renee26

    I bust out laughing every time she does that “run” to her seat at the beginning of the show…she be high than a mf too

  • Enoughsaid2020

    The flu is no joke. Get better soon Wendy Williams.

  • Patty Anderson
  • Quitedeliteful


  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I believe she had the flu because Whoopi had the flu. It’s spreading. You don’t lie about the flu because people don’t go around you.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Yes, I remember she said she had graves disease. The rumor mill will start stuff anyway it can.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Whoopi was off the View for a week with the flu. Why didn’t people say nasty stuff about why she was off?

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    No, she doesn’t trash other peop’s marriages. She only repeats what the Tabloids report. She gets all her Hot topics from the mediatakeouts, blindgossip, E Entertainment, etc. She doesn’t have sources, except for the tabloids.

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    I though 2020 would be her last year??

  • sunni_daze

    Wendy needs to get herself a side peice.

  • Renee26

    She plays that ditsy blonde role goodt!! LMAO

  • Daryl Campbell

    They are really a grossed out couple. Yuk!

  • YellowSauce

    I don’t wish sickness on her but as far as her own little scandal most people that dish can’t take … and I will leave that where it is …
