‘The Wendy Williams Show’ is going through some behind-the-scenes changes.
According to reports, longtime longtime producer Jason Gabel and at least two other senior staff members were let go following Wendy’s whole NAACP/HBCU incident.
It’s unclear if that incident had anything to do with the firings.

“The crew had a big party celebrating what they considered a season well done,” we’re told, and “the next day [some of them] got calls saying they’d been let go.”
We’re told execs want to retool the show, adding more current-affairs coverage and pop culture.
Wendy Williams found herself at the center of a furor after saying she doesn’t believe in the NAACP or historically black colleges, because there is no “white” equivalent.
She quickly apologized for the remarks.
Show reps declined to comment.
Well…the show must go on, right?
