In Sept. 2021, the talk show shared in an Instagram post that Wendy was dealing with "ongoing medical issues" that kept her away from fulfilling her hosting duties.

The TV personality also faced a legal battle against Wells Fargo. According to a signed affidavit Wendy submitted to the Supreme Court of the State of New York in February obtained by E! News, she claimed Wells Fargo had denied her access to her financial assets and statements due to allegations that she's "of unsound mind."

She also alleged that in doing so, Wells Fargo had caused "imminent and irreparable financial harm to myself, my family, and my business."

For the series finale of The Wendy Williams Show on June 17, Wendy remained absent with Sherri Shepherd filling in as host.

"If you think about it, Wendy Williams changed daytime talk with her unique take on 'Hot Topics,' her one-of-a-kind celebrity interviews, the signature 'Ask Wendy' segments and, of course, her famous, 'How you doin'?'" Sherri said during the last episode. "And I want to say, Miss Wendy, you are an icon and you are loved by so many. So many."
