As Wendy Williams reportedly continues to nurse herself back to health, her co-executive producer is clearly enjoying the set of fill-in hosts that have stepped in during the host’s absence. And according to fans, Suzanne Bass may be feeling a little too happy about the change.
During Nick Cannon’s stint as a substitute Feb. 4–6, Bass, who has been with “The Wendy Williams Show” since its debut in 2009, uploaded a photo to her Instagram page sharing her pleasure in how it’s been with Cannon as a host.
“Hope you guys tuned in to Nick Cannon. What a class act and a delight to work with,” she wrote Feb. 5.
Fans thought the remark was shade toward her boss. In 2017, Williams butted heads with Bass over the EP chuckling as the host discussed Bobbi Kristina Brown’s ex-boyfriend Nick Gordon allegedly biting his new girlfriend.
Williams was so put off she paused to turn her attention to Bass. With just a look on her face, Williams questioned why Bass smiled.
“I don’t know why I laughed,” she said.
“Because you’re ignorant,” Williams replied pointedly.
“No, no, no, no. The whole teeth thing made me smirk a little bit, I don’t know why,” Bass explained.
Williams moved on, and after initially continuing to interact with Bass on camera in subsequent shows, a stint came when Bass was nowhere to be found on screen. She’s long since come back on camera, and they’ve had playful interactions up until Williams’ last show on Dec. 20.
Presently, several fans wanted Bass to expound on how “delightful” Cannon was compared to Williams.
“As opposed to????…. 👂”
“A delight👏🏼 as opposed to”
“We all saw the shade in that comment 😂😂👀”
Williams continues to remain absent from her long-running daytime talk show after fans became troubled by her slurred speech and later, her fractured arm late last year. The TV personality was supposed to return to her show several times between January and February but released a statement making it clear she’ll require extended time away from her signature purple chair.
“As Wendy Williams Hunter previously shared, she fractured her shoulder and has been on the mend. Over the past few days, Wendy has experienced complications regarding her Graves’ Disease that will require treatment,” the January statement read. “Wendy will be under the strict supervision of her physicians, and as part of her care, there will be significant time spent in the hospital.
“Despite her strong desire to return, she is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being. Wendy thanks everyone in advance for their well-wishes and for respecting her and The Hunter Family’s privacy during this time.”
