While Wendy has previously expressed her desire to return to the small screen, Selby reiterated that television is no longer her passion and she is now focusing on her podcast.

Selby said the broadcaster plans to create a podcast that will give her fans a true “Wendy” experience, highlighting her favorite artists, celebrities, food and fashion.

According to Selby, Wendy has not yet decided whether to release her podcast independently or in partnership with a single platform such as Apple or Spotify.

He also noted that Wendy remains open to appearances on talk shows and reality series, including The View and The Real Housewives franchise.

Wendy did not appear on any episode of her talk show last season after taking a hiatus for health reasons.

Taking over her time slot, Sherri Shepherd paid tribute to the host on the show’s final episode, but Wendy never showed up.
