Although 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 focused on her podcast.

Selby said the network 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 hasn’t yet decided whether to release her podcast independently or in partnership with a single platform like Apple or Spotify.

While the podcast is currently in the works, Selby told TMZ that there is no timeline for its release.

He also noted that Wendy remains open to appearing on talk shows and reality series like The View and The Real Housewives.

Wendy did not appear in a single episode of the final season of her talk show after taking a hiatus due to health issues.

Sherri Shepherd, who is taking over her time slot, paid tribute to the host during the show’s final episode, but Wendy did not make an appearance.
