Wendy Williams Goes In On The Final Episode Of Her Show: 'There Was Nothing I Liked...Ick!'

Wendy Williams has seen the final episode of The Wendy Williams Show, and she feels a way about it.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Williams told The New York Post that she wasn’t sold on the last episode. “There was nothing I liked about [the final episode of] The Wendy Williams Show,” she said.

She said that the show's producer, Debmar-Mercury, didn't ask her to be a part of the show.

“I sat in my apartment and I watched it,” she continued. “And [I was] like, ‘ick!'” She added that she felt like the show’s production company should have extended an invitation to her.

“Debmar-Mercury, in my opinion should have done it with [me], not these other people on The Wendy Williams Show. Except for Fat Joe,” she said.

For those who don't know the pantheon of Williams friends, rappers Fat Joe and Remy Ma are her friends in real life, and she was recently on one of Fat Joe's Instagram Lives discussing her health.

Regarding Fat Joe, Williams said, “I love him. He’s my favorite.”

Who knows if her love for Fat Joe’s hosting skills is any shade towards Sherri Shepherd, who is now set to host the show after Williams this fall. But one thing she did say is that she also didn’t understand why her show’s social media, including the show’s Instagram and YouTube pages, were taken down. But, she said she is ready to move on to her new podcast, The Wendy Experience.

"If you're extremely famous like I am, [hosting a podcast] will make more money than being on 'The Wendy Williams Show,'" she said.

Williams’ recent interviews at outlets like TMZ have shown how Williams’ health has deteriorated since the last time we saw her on her show. Williams’ brother Tommy has also revealed to his YouTube audience that he tried to help keep Williams’ true condition under wraps, but he claims Williams won’t allow himself or other family members to help her. According to him, he believes Williams is in denial about the state of her health.
