Wendy Williams' daytime talk show will come to an end after 11 seasons. Problems in Wendy's personal life and her declining health proved to be the show's downfall.

The news was first reported by Lovebscott.com. According to B. Scott, Wendy's staffers are already out looking for new jobs.

Sources told B. Scott exclusively:

"This was an extremely difficult season to get through for the staff and Wendy herself, obviously. With the show's renewal set to end after the 2019-2020 season, everyone thinks it's the perfect time to say goodbye move on. Wendy has enough going on as it is and honestly no one, including Wendy, is sure she can even make it through season 11. Not to mention, advertisers consider her to be a 'risk' due to her unplanned hiatuses and extended breaks. It's very likely the show won't be back."

Wendy, 54, divorced her cheating husband, Kevin Hunter, after he fathered a daughter with his longtime mistress earlier this year.

Wendy said in the court docs there was "no reasonable prospect of reconciliation between the parties."

The mom-of-one is currently receiving therapy for lymphedema, a chronic condition that causes irreversible and painful swelling in her legs.

Medical problems related to Graves' disease caused her to delay the premiere of her 11th season by over a month.

In May Wendy's son, Kevin Hunter Jr, was arrested for breaking his father's nose during a scuffle in a convenience store parking lot in New Jersey. The charges against him were eventually dropped.

On Thursday, Wendy listed her marital home for $1.8 million. A Wendy fan hacked the listing and wrote, "Cheater a$s Kevin hunter and innocent wendy Williams former home."

After fans flocked to the Zillow.com page late Thursday, Wendy ordered her real estate agent to take the listing down, The Blast reports.

Even though the listing is private, The Blast reports the home is still available through private sale.

    Listen up! It's not final. They don't know if it's going to be cancelled. No official word!

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Aw dam just when i started liking her too
    Mannnn

  • Coy little wink
  • TheWildChild

    Next up! ....The NeNe Leakes Show! https://media1.giphy.com/media/84pHTnUPATYPe/giphy.gif

  • Bree

    Nene Leakes would be a great fit!!

  • KarmaBackAround

    Every time i see that pic of them legs, Jesus!!! https://media3.giphy.com/media/3oz8xPIblfyMdZwM8w/giphy.gif

  • Bree

    You took the words right out of my mouth. As soon as I read it, I said Nene Leakes will do so well. I always thought she should have her own talk show.

  • TheWildChild

    ??? She's been gawking and scheming in the background for years ? Waiting for Wendy and Steve to fall off the wagon.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Chi wendy aint goin no where... that show and her son is her everything..she aint goin nowhere jus yet!

  • SpiceGirl
  • Cricket404

    I actually like her better now.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Not shocked.

  • Nita Pie

    I'm in love with Aubrey Drake Graham all over again

  • Jessy

    Awww, I hope not. She has a new step to he and better energy.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Yall think she's going back to radio? As long as she's not producing chile, that Aaliyah biopic was a mess

  • Ghetto Real Name

    God I hope not. Plus you gotta get out there and grind. Steve and Wendy were griding hard as hell, over a decade before they got to TV. RHOA is not a grind to me lol.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Maybe. She used to call herself the queen of all media. I wonder if she can write? Wendy is a real journalist so not just any one genre. And she is book smart. I think she gonna find something. I hope so.

  • ATL White Guy

    If the source quoted says it's likely not to be back, but the headline says it won't be back, isn't there a slight disconnect there? Tbh I don't care either way. Just seems like a small triple jump there.

  • Jazzy

    Give that show to TashaK

  • gellie

    Everything has to be dissolved because of the divorce. This is not surprising.

  • The Art

    But she can’t talk. Nene is boring by herself and doesn’t know enough to carry a full show alone. She needs an ensemble and even then she’s a dud.

  • Starburst

    She's on a summer hiatus...

  • Bree

    She needs a bigger fan base. However, I could see her on one of those daytime talk shows like The Talk or The View. Give her six months to a year and I think she can be a POWERHOUSE!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Welp! As? the OLD SAYING GOES.... "NOTHING LAST FOREVER??

  • KarmaBackAround

    A hot mess!

  • Starburst

    The show returns September 16th.

  • cherrypie

    I think its a ploy so she wont have to keep paying her husband who is Producer on the show. It'll come back as "the Wendy Show" instead of the "The Wendy Williams Show". Same ratchetness, different stage set.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    NO! I AIN'T THAT FUXING BORED! NE NE?.. CHILD BYE! The Gossip DAY TIME SHIP JUST ENDED! WENDY WAS THE LAST JOAN RIVERS,!

  • Bree

    Nene has the gift of gab if you ask me. I think she could really pull it off with the right guidance. She doesn't have to be a gossip queen like Wendy. She can't do any worse than Kris Jenner's numbers. I think she can become the Tyra Banks, Jenny Jones, Ricki Lake, Sally Raphael, of our day. Not sure if she can outdo Oprah. Oprah set a high standard. I think with the right team, she can be successful. Her manager is a Jewish male I believe.

  • Bree

    You don't have to watch the show, just like you don't have to reply to my comment. CHILD BYE is very juvenile, and I'm a lady by the way. Let's be adults about this if you will.

  • TheWildChild

    Yep, ? and Queen Latifah ?

  • Bree

    Yes, I forgot about the Queen. I loved her song: Let's Talk About as her intro.

  • Bree

    I would hope that Nene wishes everyone well. You block your blessings praying for another's downfall.

  • Music

    To be fair, Wendy stated in the past(before the divorce,health issues) that she would probably end the show in 2020. I dont think she's into it anymore anyways.

  • http://realitytea.com Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    Do you think she can have seamless conversation like Wendy? Wendy has a real gift of gab that she has honed through years of radio. Also she falls back on her love of hip hop and immersion in gossip and youth culture. I suppose Nene could take it in a different direction, but I'm at a loss at what her niche would be -- housewife and nouveau riche ratchetness?

    It is not that easy. Many have tried and many have failed.

  • http://realitytea.com Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    Who do you think her guests would be?

  • T Willis

    Nene would be Tamar 2.0
    ?

  • Bree

    I believe with the right guidance she can. I can also see her doing a table talk show like The View, or even The Real. I like Loni but I don't think she fits in with the girls. Loni needs to be in another demographic. I think Nene would bring a motherly love to the girls on The Real and she can guide them. But again, with the right guidance, Nene can take daytime talk by storm. I like Wendy but I have been over her for years.

  • TheWildChild

    The season and timing is right for her? We are in that age of 'Insta-Stars' . She toned down the drama when she had that series acting debut and was actually rather good.

  • T Willis

    I just started watching the show a few months ago, and I honestly think she needs to let it end. Between the self-centered anecdotes about her Hollywood life ?, her comments on the latest gossip just isn’t as funny or interesting as her radio show. And her guests are Z-list at best... she had a good run lol.

  • Bree

    She doesn't have to have celebrity guests. Gone are the days where we had real people on daytime television telling their stories. I use to live for Ricki, Jenny, Sally and even Tyra when she first launched. I have never been a huge Oprah Show fan, however, I have always loved Oprah's acting skills.

  • TheWildChild

    I think she had a show twice throughout her career.

  • Bree

    I remember she did just a few years ago. I never thought daytime television was a good fit for the Queen to go back to. After seeing her relaunch, I wanted her to hang it up.

  • The Art

    I just don’t see her being able to conduct interesting interviews or ask informative questions. She seems too shallow and one dimensional to me. But, who knows...

  • SaltineCrackers

    She's always said she would go back to radio.

  • Bree

    Even the best of us needs guidance. I love wisdom and I guess that comes from my old soul. But Nene still has time. I personally think the timing is right. She gave birth to Housewives of ATL and Bravo if you ask me, just like the Kardashians gave birth to E!. It's time for Nene to move on, but something tells me she may have missed her chance. I just remembered people said that the same company that produced The Wendy Show was going to help Nene but Wendy gave them an ultimatum.

  • Bree

    That's why I feel she could do no worse than Tamar on a show like The Real. Nene Leakes is made for television, she just needed grooming. But I think when she left RHOA, God was opening doors for her. Something happened for those doors to shut!

  • TheWildChild

    ?wow... Wendy is a piece of work, always felt she was cleaned up for the show coming from being a radio bully. She's like the Mary Kay of talks shows? with a bunch of low self-esteem insecure followers. She still thinks she's the Queen of talk ?

  • the guest

    EXACTLY.

    She asked to be cancelled and rebranded.

    Smart move on Wendy's part.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    That's good. She needs to focus on her health anyway. I'm sure all that faking for the public is taxing and tiring.

  • TheOwley

    Her lymphedema has worsened and it can only get worse if she keeps going at this rate, so ending her show makes sense. Wendy is a at a point where she should be wearing compression stockings practically 24/7. Her circulation looks shot. She also needs to finalize her divorce and take it easy.

  • Bree

    I'm not a Wendy follower, however, I have tuned in over the years when I could. She gives good interviews and her HOT Topics would be better if she wasn't so nasty and so rude sometimes. We all talk about certain things. It's not what you do, it is how you do it. Wendy chose the money and the fame. There is nothing wrong with getting paid but all money isn't good money. And I'm not sacrificing my family for it.

  • http://realitytea.com Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    Me too. I had stopped watching but was planning to go to the show this fall.

  • pure_rachet

    She’s producing Jerry O’Connell new show.

  • pure_rachet

    I think she has written 7 books. Not sure if that’s what you mean. I’m skipping through the comments

  • Shenanigans1

    Dang I thought for sure they would extend for at least another 5 years. Wonder what’s next for her.

  • WhoKnew

    Yeah, saw that on The View yesterday. The guy slipped and said his show was taking over Wendy Williams slot so when they asked him where was Wendy going and if her show was ending he became glibe and said oh she is on vacy for the rest of the summer. You know how you rich people do. Why lie?

  • Cricket404

    I hope you get a chance to go?

  • Shenanigans1

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he comes to tv. He’s got that it factor.

  • WhoKnew

    To coin your name "Shenanigans" one, they prolly got tired of all the shenanigans associated with her; for 2 she prolly ain't all the way off that shyt and for tres refer back to uno and dos.

  • WhoKnew

    Good point.

  • WhoKnew

    Not sure about that. Saw this on the view yesterday and a guy said he was taking over her slot.

  • Cricket404

    She tried, it was a good freshman attempt. She still has the money to make the next one better.

  • MsPam

    Wendy said that she doing a biopic about her life, Will Packer is producing it( I think that’s his name) on lifetime. What has she done for to have one?!

  • WhoKnew

    Think she is going to get into producing. I've heard that is where the real coins are if you are a producer or EP.

  • Starburst

    Jerry O'Donnell will be taking her slot for the summer hiatus until she returns on September 16th.

  • pure_rachet

    He’s taking her time slot for the 3 weeks during her break.

  • WhoKnew

    Has anyone seen Knee Kneed without makeup. I am not entirely sure she isn't a man. Sides that she always looks funky like she doesn't bathe.

    Someone gave me her book about 7 years ago, I immediately threw that ish in the trash. Didn't even crack the first page.

  • JALC

    IDGAF, but nobody wants to see Wendy's deformed legs. She needs to wear pants to hide them. Just looking at them makes my legs hurt.

  • Dr. P

    The show returns next month, and while Zillow doesn't have pictures of the home, MANY other sites have the listing available to the public...

  • T Willis

    I’m shocked she’s settling for a TV movie. I thought she would try to get it on the silver screen.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Wendy is executive producer for Jerry O show. His show will be in a 6 week review while she is on hiatus. Jerry was on her show and called her his Oprah. Because O put Dr. Phil on.

    Edited to say: If she comes back Sept. 16th with the bragging about her phony friendships and being in the IN crowd with Kardashian’s and Chyna, I will tap out.

  • GAPeach

    Why are you reporting this as though it's a fact? Unnamed source, who say's it's "likely" it won't be back. Gotta gets them clicks girl, right?

  • GAPeach

    It's hot as hell all over the country. She's supposed to have her legs sweating so you don't have to look at a post that you didn't even need to review?

  • http://www.pureromance.com LA

    That was cute, lol!

  • Renee26

    No good niccas will ruin everything

  • MrsSpice1

    Praise God!!!!!!!! About time!!!!! Good riddance fraud!!!

  • MrsSpice1

    Damnit ?...u unfortunately might be right.

  • Seldomseen

    Take it to the house Wendy, you have done better than most....

  • Renee26

    She said she's writing a book

  • MrsSpice1

    She shouldve got canceled then! Idk why black ppl love her old bad built house wigz whiteazz so much?

  • MrsSpice1

    ??????

  • Soon2BWife

    Howard Stern did so she certainly could.

  • Soon2BWife

    Her look is more in line with radio.

  • Nita Pie

    LMAO, didnt mean to make you sick lol

  • Passion

    I enjoyed watching WW since the beginning, however, for the last few years it’s started going downhill especially after the “fainting” situation.

    I know her health issues had her acting and talking crazy but the constant talking about her single life and this...”who am I” talk is getting boring! She need to take some off and concentrate on her health.

  • TheWildChild

    Nasty and rude is nothing from her "Ruthless" radio days. ??

  • chan chan

    ?

  • Alextra Ballard

    Every damn time?

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yew just maybe on tew somn

  • MsPam

    Excuse me it’s not worthy at all, tv and silver screen.

  • Libby

    Exactly I agree she doesn’t want the husband to profit any longer. Awesome strategy??

  • Bree

    I'm not a radio fan. I first heard of Wendy Williams when I first bought Karrine Steffans' Confessions book.

  • Rita

    Agree. Go on Wendy & work on them Bratwursts.

  • Indies beauty

    Noooooooooooo.

  • Rita

    She talked so badly about them, then you see her chillin' & take pictures with them. I Can't Stand a PhonyHeifer.

  • Wreckognize Game

    It irks tf out of me when she starts telling the corny azz stories about her escapades with all her new plastic friends.
    1. Wendy is selling this mess to Kelvin thru the ?
    2. We don’t need another Kathy Griffin since she is blackballed
    3. We really don’t need another Tiffany Haddish telling these people’s business after hanging out

  • Renee26

    the constant talking about her single life and this...”who am I” talk is getting boring!

    SWEAR!! This is not what we meant when we said live in your truth. She coulda gotten that outta the way, let us applaud her, then went back to the way the old hot topics were. But nooooo this helfa wanna turn "Hollywood" name droppin and give long drawn out play by plays about ish we don't care about.

  • Renee26

    HA!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    If the show ends, it might be life-saving for Wendy! She has multiple revenue streams, a nice net worth!

    She can later do a podcast or a Facebook Table Talk from her home to stay current!

    I firmly believe words are things, and right now Wendy needs all the positive vibrations surrounding her and exuding from her!

    Coming back in great health will encourage others!

  • Wanda Holmes

    He is not the Producer anymore. Where have you been. Everyone knows that!

  • Logan Roberts

    Wendy needs to take a year off and then go back to radio, because she be all over the place during hot topics. Wish her luck though.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You just had to get in that parting shot, didn't you?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    To the corner---you're on timeout!

  • TheRealTW

    Did the poison Kevin allegedly gave Wendy cause Wendy's Grave Disease?

  • MythCalledLove

    I just know we love a good comeback. Plus she has experienced damn near every persons worst nightmare. But as Madea and Aunt Bam said " Little girl everything you do comes back around. She planted those seeds"

  • ALLMINE?

    Omg XM would pay Wendy a fortune..

  • Alextra Ballard

    Wendy has been line about her and Big Kevs relationship for the past 11 yrs.... In spite of everything, Wendy dun well.... I think it’s time for her tew bow out gracefully....with all of her current issues,I think this is probably what she needs...time to heal...physically and emotionally

  • ALLMINE?

    Don't disrespect Wendy like that. ? wendy has been around since the late 80s.

  • ALLMINE?

    Wendy has a crazy ass story.. sleeping with biggie. Buying drugs uptown. Growing up upper middle class in the 70s. All kinds of good content. Fights at radio stations. Singers waiting in the lobby to beat her ass at hot97

  • ALLMINE?

    People love this show. My aunt couldn't stand her on the radio but loves the talk show.

  • LuvR

    When Wendy was doing str8 hot topics and wasn't addressing her own mess that was in the news... The roses were dragging her for filth. Now that she is responding about her personal issues and health problems and dating life etc, the Roses are still unhappy. SMH... Wendy needs to rest ... 11 years was a good run. I am happy to know she's on the mend.

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Renee26

    That's why I said that's NOT what was meant by people telling her to live in her truth. She accomplished that when she addressed the divorce. All that extra wasn't requested.

    Thanks for adding your moot point tho

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Wendy is all good and not bothered. She is a brand; her paper is always good no matter what she is doing.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Kelvin took Wendy DOWN... Should’ve left his a$$ 20 years ago when he was caught on video having relations with a chick that wasn’t Wendell https://media3.giphy.com/media/TgMO3MWY2YMCh0t59c/giphy.gif

  • Shamwow

    Smh a busted one at that.

  • Shamwow

    Yes everyone should get a time to retire and do something different and healthier for her body. Her body is talking to her listen to it Wendy damn!

  • Shamwow

    Yes go back to radio. Unscripted radio. In fact own one and let us pay you for it.

  • Shenanigans1

    Now I can see this.

  • Shenanigans1

    She slept with who? *runs to google*

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yep...alla this began when Big Kev put his peen in a pu$ that wasn’t his wife’s.

  • RiDONKulous

    The show won’t be cancelled at all, it’s he most watched show and she’s fawking hilarious ? hopefully it won’t be cancelled

  • Parent

    He allegedly even put his peen in a dudes butt so how much toxic behavior does one need to take to decide to leave...

  • kgirl33

    For me, what made her special was the fact that she didn't align herself with the celebrities that she talked about. Now she's out chillin and hanging with celebrities she used to talk about therefore she not going to be ass neutral and raw as she once was.

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    no wonder she was promoting the Jerry O'Connell show..he was praising wendy calling her his OPRAH because she's his boss and the show will be coming on in a few weeks in WENDY'S time slot...I was thinking that doesn't make sense...His show won't make it either..oh well

  • Satin Panther

    I absolutely loved Wendy back in her radio days, it was RAW and she was sometimes the first to put tea with receipts about celebrities and then when Charlamagne joined it made it even more funny and entertaining. People used to stare at me in my car as I was dying laughing at her on the radio, good times!

  • ALLMINE?

    Yea. Lol crazy life she's had.. if u from ny nj ct u know

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I wish Wendy and Charlamagne would get back together and do something.
