This comes after sources close to the production indicated that Wendy may never return as a host as she continues to battle several medical issues related to Graves’ disease.

This crop of guest hosts will take the show through January 28 with the February and beyond show in the air.
A source told Page Six, ‘Even if she comes back, she’ll be a lame duck because her show hasn’t renewed yet this season.
This will mark Sherri Shepherd’s third guest assignment which is seen as the best option to replace Wendy permanently.
A rotating list of guest hosts has been filled in for the ailing star on her daytime chat series as she battles a host of medical issues.
Season 13 premiered with a panel of guest hosts on October 18, including Devyn Simone, Bevy Smith, Leah Remini, Whitney Cummings, Michael Rapaport, Bill Bellamy and Jerry Springer.
Last month, Wendy was seen leaving a health center in Miami, Florida barefoot and wearing a Versace bathrobe.
