According to Page Six, the controversial TV talk show star has stated unequivocally that she will return to her iconic purple chair in September. However, Debmar-Mercury, the production house, claims that it is “logistically impossible” for her to do just that.

“I’m coming back to ‘The Wendy Williams Show.’ Absolutely. Absolutely,” she assured the hip hop artist, who has been stepping in for Williams as a host of the show with Remy Ma.
