The Wendy Williams Podcast is potentially a thing, according to a TMZ exclusive interview. Wendy Williams said she’s “100 percent retired” from the grind of her daily TV show, saying she would only be interested in guest hosting a show. She mentioned The View as being on her list as a guest host.
When asked about why she’s retiring (and tired) of being on television, she said she has enough money to do something else, and what she’s never done is podcasts. While everyone has a podcast, Wendy Williams said, “when you’re famous podcasts will make more money for me being famous than doing the Wendy Williams Show. Where will I go? I’m not sure. Europe, you know. France. Wherever I want to go.”
According to The Root, her manager Will Selby, Wendy has been in talks with people like Snoop Dogg and Fat Joe to be some of the first guests on her show.
During the interview, Wendy Williams also talked about her lymphedema condition, which is caused by a blockage in the lymphatic system. She held her swollen foot up to the camera to show the impact her condition has on her body. Wendy said she could feel maybe 5% of her feet but explained how she’s not letting it slow her down.
Social Media Reacts to the Wendy Williams Podcast potentially being in the works
While some fans are happy that the Wendy Williams Podcast is in the making, many were considered about her health. If you watch the interview, Wendy’s speech, cadence, and conversation seem a but different compared to her time on television. Fans had a lot to say about it:
Anyone who has Wendy Williams working is engaging in disability/elder abuse. I can’t say she has dementia but it’s clear she has been in very serious cognitive decline for no less than 6 years. https://t.co/kWTofectj6

That was a tough interview to watch with Wendy Williams. It’s clear she’s not 100% in her right frame of mind. He words are a little slurred and her body language is saying she’s not okay to come back to any platform. I wish her all the best but she needs a lot of rest.
