During Ms. Williams malaise, the show producers used a a number of fill-in guest hosts who did well in the ratings. Most of them could have inherited the show themselves. Guest hosts included Fat Joe and Remy Ma, Michael Rapaport, Kym Whitley and Finesse Mitchell, Nick Cannon, Keke Palmer and Sherri Shepherd

Fresh Face on New York TV Yakker Landscape

This is a great departure from other New York TV show productions that are often contrived. Other TV shows are often decidedly fake and the in-studio experience can be sub-par. Wendy keeps her show real and she is a credit to the profession.

Wendy Williams Notes

Infamous 2008 On Screen Argument between Omarosa & Wendy:

Omarosa Manigault appeared on the Wendy Williams Show in July 2008, to promote her new book. The interview immediately went off course and escalated into a verbal cat fight that damaged both the stars reputations.

As soon as Manigault sat down, the string of insults started rolling out. Williams and Manigault went back and forth for the 10-minute interview in the most passive-aggressive manner until Williams nearly threw her off the set and ended the interview with curt "...thank you for coming on "MY" show." Omarosa later apologized, but the damage was already done - to both of them.
