Fans of Wendy Williams talk show were surprised to see Don Lemon filling in for her on Monday. The daytime diva is taking another week off as she recoups from a shoulder injury.

Lemon joined a trio of notable women who held it down for Williams because “it takes four people to make up” for her absence.

Wendy was scheduled to return from holiday break on January 7, but the talk show was delayed another week, as explained on the show’s official Instagram account:

“Wendy Williams will be returning with all-new episodes of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, January 14, 2019. After fracturing her shoulder, Wendy is on the mend and wants to return pain-free and be 200%, delivering the best show that millions of viewers tune-in to watch,” the post read.

Don was on a guest hosting panel that included Elizabeth Wagmeister from Variety and Page Six TV, actor/comedian Heather McDonald, and Judge Faith Jenkins.

“Wendy is on the mend. She will be back next Monday,” said Lemon. “We love you Wendy, we’re rooting for you, we want you to be back, we want you to be 400 percent.”

Fans previously took to social media to voice concern for Williams after she was slurred her speech on the December 20 episode of her show. She blamed it on the pain meds she had taken for her shoulder injury.

“As I reported earlier in the week, I have a hairline fracture on my upper arm, which hurts like hell. I’ve never broken a bone or experienced a fracture in my life,” she wrote. “In the key place where the fracture is, and trying to scurry around and do too much, I am now paying the price. I’ve never taken a pain medication in my life (except when I got snatched over 20 years ago) until this week.”

    If it is true that your husband has got a slut pregnant
    – kick him to the kerb! In these days no one needs to get pregnant – his woman has done it deliberately and if she thinks it won’t happen to her she’s dreaming!
    He’s a dog! Send him to the pound – plenty of fixed bitches there!🤷‍♂️ Welcome back – the trio on hot talk are not good!

    I love Wendy. I also loved Jerry, when he was the “guest” host. I hope Wendy didn’t get jealous of him. I hope she is more confident of herself and thinks of her show first. If the audience wants Jerry while she is off…bring him.
    I agree with the majority of her fans…she needs to talk about her “situation”. I love that she says it like it is… including herself. She will have more respect from her fans and the celebs she is “just sayin” about…

  4. Why don’t they just cancel the show! She’s had her ten years. Let it go now Wendy. You can not come back after your own scandal without addressing it. Smh

    NEVER LIKED THE SHOW AND WILL NEVER WATCH IT!!!!!!!! The show is for IGNORANT people who are ENTERTAINED with GOSSIP from the likings of IN LIVIN WANDA IN THE WINDOW!!!!!!!!! POWER TO THE PEOLPE!!!!!!!!!

  7. We all know she is absent because of her husband’s infidelity. She should just fess up, everybody knows. By the way, how did she fracture her arm? Probably lost balance and crashed because she is so damn top heavy that her anorexic body couldn’t support her.

  8. That’s right Chela, she made sure, not ONE person steal her thunder. The panel feels like Fashion Police.
    When Jerry was on the audience were screaming Jerry! Jerry! He had to remind them it’s Wendy! I rather watch reruns with him. He earned that $$$. But these people??!! At least put him on the panel. Wendy knows what she is doing.

  9. Forget Don, where’s Jerry O Donnell? He captured the essence of of the Wendy Show. He was a delight last year. 4 people did nothing for Wendy Show.I don’t care what people say, Jerry was a treat!!! He had me laughing all the way to work. Wendy got nervous. He was that good.

    • Yess! Jerry was very entertaining! I think Wendy was frighten by that! This guy is a news guy! now we have a talk panel? Not watching Sorry Wendy!
