Apparently the 54-year-old’s bounce back game is real because she’s already back guest hosting The Wendy Williams Show just one day after having emergency surgery. Shepherd shared the news with her fans on Instagram revealing that she had to have an emergency appendectomy Sunday night.
Sherri said she was went to the hospital Sunday after being in excruciating pain thinking they would give her Metamucil for gas, and was admitted for surgery.
“I started crying because the doctor said I had to have my appendix taken out right then and there. So I asked the doctor can you guys do it on Friday,” she joked. “I never do this but I pulled my mask down and I said ‘do you know who I am? I’m filling in for Wendy Williams, I gotta do Wendy Williams.'”
Michael Rappaport, who has also been filling in while Wendy Williams is out, stepped in for Sherri on Monday. Shepherd has been among a rotating list of guest hosts for the show while Williams recovers from complications of Graves disease.
The show’s scheduled September 20 Season 13 premiere was delayed for weeks after Williams tested positive for a breakthrough case of Covid-19. Prior to her Covid diagnosis, the show said Williams would be stepping back from promotional activities ahead of the premiere due to “ongoing health issues.”
Williams has battled various maladies over during the past few years. Her battle with Graves disease, an immune system disorder, dates to 1999, and her show went on hiatus in 2018. She also passed out on live TV in 2017 during the show’s Halloween episode, an incident that was attributed to dehydration.
