Despite being booted from her longtime talk show, Wendy Williams is adamant that she’ll return to television later this year.
On Monday night (May 2), Williams teased a fall screen return as she strutted the streets of New York City on her way to Cardi B’s Met Gala after-party.
Williams replied to TMZ, “Of course,” when asked if she was coming back to TV.
“The Wendy Williams show lives on forever,” the veteran host added.
Williams doubled down on her return yelling “yes” multiple times when asked if she would be back on the air in September.
The 57-year-old was permanently replaced by Sherri Shepherd on the Wendy Williams Show, so it’s unclear where she would land in the fall. In March, Williams told Good Morning America that she had “the mind and body of a 25-year-old” and that she was ready to return to her purple chair.
