Wendy Williams Wants To Meet With Sherri Shepherd

The two tv personalities are in the middle of an ongoing online back and forth.

Talk show host Wendy Williams wants to meet with Sherri Shepherd after the comedian made some recent remarks about her amid the stars online back and forth.

According to Entertainment Tonight, on Friday (May 6) Williams chatted with Fat Joe on Instagram Live and responded to his question if the tv personality would tune into Shepherd’s upcoming daytime talk show Sherri, which is premiering this fall, replacing The Wendy Williams Show.

“I like her, but I won’t be watching her because I know what she’s going to be doing and that’s really not my thing,” Williams shared. “I love being on my own show and I love that people love to watch it all the time.”

Shepherd caught wind of the comments and responded while appearing on her own Instagram Live on Saturday (May 7).

“I did hear Wendy say she will not watch me on the new show and that’s okay,” she said. “You know, I understand. I’m not mad at Wendy.”

Adding, “I would say that everyone should be praying for Wendy right now. I’m truly concerned for her because I don’t feel like there’s anybody over there protecting her.”

Williams soon became aware of Shepherd’s latest comments and shared with ET that she would like to meet with the former The View co-host.

“I have tons of support around me and I am working on projects,” Williams said. “I would love the chance to actually speak with Sherri and sit down and meet.”

LaShawn Thomas, Williams’ lawyer, also echoed similar sentiments about the two ladies scheduling to meet.

“Wendy requesting to have a sit down with Sherri to have a meeting of the minds is the perfect solution as she has no ill will or intent,” Thomas said, “Wendy is preparing to get her show back in motion.”

It’s unclear if the pair has officially scheduled a meeting.
