Wendy Williams Having Trouble Booking Guests?


Last week there were rumors that Wendy Williams was exploring a return to radio [click here if you missed that].

Is she really being forced back...?

Sure sounds like it.

This A list talk show host is having trouble getting bookings. Her fans like her because she doesn’t kneepad, but now celebrities are refusing to do her show because they don’t want to be seen as supporters of her format.
Wendy Williams
Fun Fact: Wendy recently announced all new episodes on the Wendy Show with an entire hour of Hot Topics.
[So no guests, then?]

Welp, I do appreciate that she keeps it real. It really is what it is, I guess.

Not to mention audience members. Do you all know that when her seats don't fill up, they call in us extras, and yes we get paid to sit and pretend to enjoy her show while the others watch her for free. Ha. P.S. All talk and game shows do this. It pays to be a extra!

@1:16....lies you tell. I have actually been an audience member on this show and there were no paid extras....although, this was like 7 years ago. And I have seen people I actually know who are NOT actresses or actors in the audience.

If her show was doing THAT bad they wouldn't have renewed it till 2020. Also, Snitch this blind item is LATE hunty. They been saying for YEARS now that Wendy has issues booking guests. It is what it is. The show must and will go on.

Wendy Williams can't book any really good celebs on her show because she is a hot mess and talks too much shit. You can't talk shit about people then expect them to come on your show. Plus a lot of stars are managed by the same agencies. If you fuck over one of their clients you will not get access to the other clients....even if they are D-List.

For example, Halle Berry. Wendy interviewed Halle about 2 years ago. It was a nice funny interview. I was like now Wendy will be able to book more A/B-List stars. Nope. Wendy fucked that up a week or so after the interview.

There was the infamous beat down in Halle's driveway where her new fiancé/husband beat the brakes off her daughter's father. Of course Wendy discussed it in Hot Topics. But what she did NOT need to do was call Halle a bad mother and say it was disgusting that Halle let her daughter witness her father getting beat up. TMZ reported that Halle and Nahla were not even aware of the fight going on outside and did not see it. Wendy burned that bridge to the ground. No more Halle on Wendy ever. Same with Simon Cowell. He did her show then Wendy talked about him like a dog. LOL.

I'm surprised that Jennifer Lopez did her show. Back when she was on radio Wendy said JLO was an industry whore and that she fucked anyone that would help her music career take off.

Wendy needs to kiss some major ass if she wants to start booking some A/B/C-List stars on a regular basis. Hot Topics and Ask Wendy is only going to go so far.

Just because her show was renewed thru 2020 doesn't guarantee that it will actually air thru 2020 if the ratings tank.

She is EXPANDING
She is going to have a TALK SHOW on Sirius Radio like
Howard Stern
Jamie FOXX
and Oprah.

This will be like her Comedy Tour, where she can say what she wants.
She has plenty of guest.
And the entire show of Hot Topics was viewer requested.

Umm to be a extra is good if you have NO ambition to make a DECENT hourly wage or salary. Minimum wage to watch Wendy, I don't even do it for free so you can't buy me that cheap! Go Get A Real Job.

@3:11 Do your homework you idiot. I been working as a extra for years. This is something Hollywood and New York won't tell you. Whenever seats don't fill we get called in and paid to fill in! We're called seat fillers! I don't care if you saw her 30 years ago. I get paid to see her while yo dumb behind Sat there and watched her for free! All talk shows and game shows does this that is why you kept seeing the same people out in the audience on Jerry Springer, Ricky Lake, And Jenny Jones show back in the day! We also fill in seats for award shows or until a certain guest arrive. So, while you watched Wendy for free. I got paid to watch her garbage!

Here we are getting mad tea on RWS and other sites but we hate on WW for giving us tea on live tv? I love tea. It keeps me distracted from my real problems. I enjoy reading it and hearing it. I'll suss out later if it's truthful or not. She was mad entertaining on NYC radio and although has softened a bit and less reckless, she still has an edge. Agree that she didn't have many celebs on her radio show and it was still Number One forever. She'll be fine. Her viewing audience is very diverse and they dig her schtick. She's done very well for herself.

@ 3:11 PM, UM, how would you know that there were no paid actors? I doubt the show's producers would announce that to the audience, and I highly doubt you walked around to 20-30-40 people asking them were they paid to be there. And seriously, what the hell is that to even be mad at, why are you mad about the possibility of the show having paid seat fillers? What do you care? And why would you doubt that's even possible? A mean dang, every single day of filming there might not be enough people off from work or with free time to spare to come and sit for the taping so why is it impossible that the producers call in hired actors to fill the seats when they don't have enough audience members. Hell, when I go with my crew to see concerts and plays, if the front row seats aren't full, say because the prices were too high or folks just didn't show up. The theater will have ushers tell tickets holders to move forward to fill the front rows because they don't want the performers to feel bad if they see empty seats. When I went to see Gerald Levert's play, when we got to the door the usher asked us did we want to upgrade our tickets because they needed to fill the front and center areas. My point is, shows do things to make sure seats are filled and paying people or giving them free tickets or upgrades is one of the things they do. GEEZ, who gets mad at a seat filler. I mean didn't Kelly Rowland make a movie called seat filler and on an episode of Seinfeld Krammer had a job as a seat filler, so it is a real job. Geez.

There's a young lady seen on a lot of episodes of Judge Judy and she has to be an actress because she's always doing the most with her facial expressions when the camera comes by. People watching judge judy on youtube have even started commenting on the lady because she's there sooooooo much.

I think I remember Aresenio having this problem in the 90s. He talked so much shit on his show about celebs that it started seeming that nearly NOBODY wanted to do an interview with his messy ass.
