Dopo 13 anni, “The Wendy Williams Show” è andato in onda il suo episodio finale il 17 giugno. Lasciando il suo posto in “Sherri” di Sherri Shepherd questo autunno, l’uscita della conduttrice Wendy Williams è stata segnata da un dramma. L’icona del giorno è stata assediata da recenti problemi di salute e battaglie finanziarie, con ulteriori rapporti emersi a maggio di tensioni nel backstage con il personale. Come ha detto un insider a Page Six, alcuni dei colleghi di Williams erano ansiosi di sbarazzarsi del suo presunto comportamento irregolare. “Ci sono stati giorni in cui le persone pensavano che non avrebbero avuto un lavoro perché lei non si sarebbe presentata al lavoro”, ha detto la fonte.

Never one to not have the last word, Leakes herself has addressed the canceled project from her POV. 

NeNe Leakes didn't appreciate Wendy Williams' jab about wealth

NeNe Leakes backed Tom Arnold's claim that her 2014 blog post about Wendy Williams costing them their hosting show — with an additional wrinkle. The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" alum told Page Six separately on June 29 that "there is truth" to Arnold's story, but the 2014 Hermès Birkin feud wasn't the only reason she lashed out at Williams. 

"Wendy saw that I had defaced my Birkin bag, and yes, she posted a comment on her show's social media page about it," Leakes confirmed. "But that wasn't the trigger. The trigger was what she said about it and me on her 'Hot Topics' [segment]." Apparently, Leakes alleged, Williams had deemed her not rich enough to mark up Birkin bags (a bag that typically retails for over $10,000). "Kim Kardashian had done the same thing around the same time, 'defaced' her [Birkin] bag," Leakes said. "Wendy said Kim can do that because she had the money to do such a thing, but basically I didn't."

Williams kept the Leakes jabs coming over the years on her now-defunct talk show. In September 2020, Williams commented on-air (via ET) that Leakes' post-"RHOA" future was uncertain, as she wasn't "a legitimate multimillion-dollar situation" like some other Housewives. Williams also called Leakes "boring" and chided that she "likes attention, dramatic attention." No wonder the two fell out!
