“On behalf of all of the guest hosts, I want to say thank you so much to all of the loyal Wendy watchers for making this show a success. And most of all, we have to thank you, Wendy Williams,” she said on the show, drawing a standing ovation.
Shepherd said Williams earned the title of “Queen of All Media,” adding, “If you think about it, Wendy Williams changed daytime talk with her unique take on ‘Hot Topics,’ her one-of-a-kind celebrity interviews, the signature ‘Ask Wendy’ segments and, of course, her famous, ‘How you doin’?’ Absolutely. And I want to say, Miss Wendy, you are an icon and you are loved by so many. So many.”
Shepherd will soon host her own talk show, Sherri, which will debut in the Wendy Williams Show‘s time slot this fall.
