According to The Sun:

Wendy Williams may quit her talk show following a string of serious health struggles- as her show has still not been renewed past 2022, according to sources.

One source close to The Wendy Williams Show exclusively told The Sun: 'The show is set to air through the 2021-22 season. There is no decision beyond that, but she could very well walk away. She's over it."

Wendy looked frail and weak after she was discharged from a NY hospital on Sept. 24 following treatment for Covid-19 and a possible mental breakdown.

A source told TMZ that Wendy is currently "asymptomatic", meaning she is showing no symptoms of Covid.

Breakthrough cases occur when fully vaccinated persons are infected with Covid-19.

Wendy Williams does not have bubble guts, Okay? The 55-year-old talk show host denied reports that she farted on live television, insisting she would have laughed out loud if she had.

A clip of The Wendy Williams Show host went viral after fans were convinced they heard the TV guru passing gas while presenting her Hot Topics segment on January 17.

On Thursday's episode, Wendy addressed the speculation, saying she did not fart on live television.

She played the footage and told her audience: "I have never farted once on this show. As a matter of fact, I barely fart, you know why? Because gas gets released several different ways and mine is belching, because all I do is talk."

Wendy also explained why she prefers leaning on her chair armrest.

"Let me tell you something right now, okay? I don't lean over like this to release a fart, I lean over like this because it's comfortable. If I sit (straight up) all the time, it's heavy on my spine... I like to release my hips and lean, you know what I'm saying?... I've been doing this for 11 years on this show!"

She also told the audience that if she had broke wind on air, she wouldn't have been able to conceal her laughter.

"I would have definitely been laughing because farts are always funny. You know a girl like me would have been laughing at that!” she giggled.

The star also made reference to the wet noise heard in the video clip, adding, "By the sound of that fart, I would have had to go change my costume! I would have left a mark in the seat. I wouldn’t even save the costume, I would have thrown it away. It'd probably be soiled beyond soiled-tivity."

Wendy Show producer Norman Baker and stagehand John Anderson explained that the sound happened while setting up for a segment with scientific author Dr. Kate Biberdorf.

"We were filling up a fish tank backstage and we didn't have the proper hose. The air was just coming out and it was sputtering like someone was farting. Okay? So that's what it was. It wasn't Wendy!" Anderson confirmed.

On Monday Wendy Williams tearfully announced her popular daytime talk show was renewed through 2022. The TV personality, who has had her share of heartbreaks this year, was clearly relieved to finally get the news off her chest.

"I got through the whole show without shedding a tear," she said before making her big announcement.

"The Wendy Show has been renewed through 2022!"

But even though Wendy's show was renewed, Page Six reports the show will definitely be cancelled after the 2022 season.

Page Six claims The Wendy Show's producer Debmar-Mercury "likely" renewed the show because there was nothing else to air in its time slot.

"They don't have anyone strong enough to replace her. They were back into a corner," an inside source told Page Six. "She will surely not be coming back beyond the two-season renewal. This will be her swan song."

Wendy had her share of problems in 2019. She filed for divorce from her cheating husband, Kevin Hunter, after he fathered a baby girl with his longtime mistress, Sharina Hudson.
 

Wendy Williams has shut down rumors that she is reuniting with her cheating estranged husband, Kevin Hunter. This week rumors swirled that Wendy was in the process of rehiring Hunter as her manager to help save her spiraling career after she canceled upcoming dates on her tour.
