Wendy Williams‘ extended hiatus from her show reportedly has many staffers relieved — and now they’re not really interested in her return.
Employees from The Wendy Williams show hope the troubled host, 54, and her husband Kevin Hunter. never return, and think work life is much better when the couple is not around, a source told Radar.
“It has been like a vacation having guest hosts. Everyone is laughing and smiling and working together. We all had gotten so used to walking on eggshells around Wendy and Kevin, we forgot what a fun work environment was,” the source spilled to Radar exclusively.
“At first the staff was worried about losing their jobs,” the source admitted about the many people left in limbo when Williams started skipping work. “Now it looks like the show can survive without Wendy, and a lot of people don’t want her to return.”
With a slew of guest hosts, the staff has been reassured by their calming presence.
The source explained that Williams’ diva behavior dragged down her employees: “There was so many unwritten rules with working with Wendy. You couldn’t contact her directly. Only certain staff members could talk with her.”
Her husband Hunter was also a terror on set, the source claimed.
“No one was allowed to disagree with him. It was a nightmare work environment,” the source told Radar. “You never knew what mood Wendy or Kevin were going to be in.”
We’re sure if Debmar-Mercury were to drop Wendy’s show and replace it with another talk show the crew would happily come along.
