YBF Exclusive: Wendy Williams Almost Dunzo!
First Miss Jones gets the ax, now Wendy? Sources, who are as close to the horse's mouth you can possibly get, exclusively tell TheYBF.com that the Queen of All Media Wendy Williams was "asked to take a couple days off" from "The Wendy Williams Experience" until next week sometime. Her bosses aren't calling it an official suspension but we all know the damn deal. I'm also told the Experience is NOT a go for 2009, so she's getting axed from free radio completely by the end of this year! (I know for a fact that ratings have very little to do with companies putting the ax on shows these days--even top rated shows are getting the boot. Radio is very political and touchy these days.) Yesterday on her show she hilariously cut up about the fact that Inner City Broadcasting Corporation cut out her Bonus Hour even though it was in her contract. She said the Bonus Hour is her favorite hour of her entire 5 hour afternoon segment. And adding in the extra hour on WBLS was her idea. She went off on-air about how wack they were for removing it starting this upcoming Monday. Apparently her bosses said the listeners "voted" and wanted more music, less talk. And she just found out on Tuesday that there would be no bonus hour come Monday. So ya'll know she was a smart ass during her whole show about it. Even worse, when she got on the radio yesterday, she basically told the listeners her husband Kevin got arrested had a run in with NYPD a few hours before while he was innocently rolling through Manhattan. WTF? This is the same Kevin that was allegedly hemming up Wendy's former talent booker Nicole Spence and threatening and sexually harrassing her on a daily basis. Oh, but there's more. Apparently Fox Networks is not going to pick up her Wendy Williams TV Talk Show for regular rotation. They taped a few episodes these past couple months and it was only shown in a few test markets/cities. And according to Wendy herself, she's heard nothing about them actually picking it up as a regular show. So that looks like it's dunzo too. Thy will be repeating the taped shows twice a day though starting soon. But a little gossipy birdie tells me that Wendy Williams is moving to Satellite Radio. That's a better deal anyway honestly. She's also focusing on her biographical movie that's already wrapped and set to come out some time soon. I'm sure it'll be straight to DVD but dammit...I'll be copping that piece for my secret must-haves stash.
