Wendy Williams is considering suing her producers for terminating her while she was on sick leave.
This week Debmar-Mercury confirmed that The Wendy Williams Show will come to an end in June. The show’s time slot will be filled by Wendy’s former friend, comedienne/actress Sherri Shepherd.
Shepherd’s show, titled “Sherri,” will be co-executive produced by her good friend, veteran journalist Jawn Murray.
Insiders claim Wendy is considering legal action because she feels betrayed by her producers and Shepherd.
Via Radar Online:
“Wendy is on sick leave and has basically been fired. This isn’t right and Wendy isn’t going to take this. She is considering legal action again her producers and is also deciding on what to do about Sherri Shepherd. Sherri was supposed to be a friend filling in for Wendy while she was sick, but instead, Sherri stabbed Wendy in the back. If anyone thinks Wendy is going to disappear without a fight they are a fool. You can’t just fire someone after a decade because they’re sick.”
It isn’t clear if Wendy is also suing Jawn Murray, since he is one of Sherri‘s executive producers.
A few months ago, @sherrieshepherd asked me would I take a pivot & go on this talk show journey with her.
Today I can finally tell the world that I will be one of the Executive Producers of the new “SHERRI” show coming in Sept.
