TMZ recently caught up with Wendy Williams outside her New York City studio after she taped the latest episode her show. The conversation between them went smoothly up until they asked her about whether she’d consider a temporary replacement while she’s on sick leave. Williams wasn’t even interested in entertaining that idea.
“How dare you? Who are you?” She said to the cameraman with a disgusted look on her face as she rolled up the window on him.
Shortly after she made the announcement on her show, her rep told TMZ that they’ll be airing re-runs in her absence. Her sick leave starts tomorrow so she won’t be on TV for the next few weeks but she did say that she’ll be updating her fans and viewers on her Facebook page.
