Now, Page Six reports that show producer are offering money for fans to participate in the audience while guest hosts fill in for Wendy. 

Whitney Cummings, Sherri Shepherd, and Leah Remini are filling in for the ailing star.

An email blast seen by the outlet offers $75 cash to “non-union, vaccinated people to sit in the studio” when Whitney Cummings fills in next week.

“The Wendy Williams Show is the provocative, must-see talk show in daytime,” the email and an online notice reads, followed by “$75 CASH incentive, given same day (3 hrs).”

And on Sunday, a post to the show’s Instagram page encouraged fans to buy tickets online to see Leah host this week, making it obvious they still have plenty of seats empty.

New guest hosts were revealed earlier this month after Wendy’s health forced her to delay her come back.

Comedian Whitney will temporarily take over the hosting duties during the week of Monday, October 25 through Friday, October 29.  

Whitney said in a press release: “In my opinion, nobody is more entertaining or authentic than Wendy Williams.

“As an avid fan, it is surreal to sit in for Wendy, but as someone who has been a guest on the show so many times, I feel confident that my relentless habit of speaking candidly, often to the point of self-sabotage, may go over well with her fans.”

She continued: “There are few places I’d feel as safe to be as unhinged and opinionated as on Wendy’s show and I am looking forward to burning many a bridge.

“Each episode I do will be in celebration of her fearlessness, and the lessons I’ve learned from her fearless feedback and advice. 

“I’d like to do whatever I can to make her life easier while she recovers so she can come back stronger and more powerful than ever.”
