Whitney Cummings and Sherri Shepherd will fill in as guest-hosts of The Wendy Show while Wendy Williams remains on medical leave.

The new hosts were announced through a post on the show's Instagram account. Cummings will host the show from October 25-29 and Shepherd will take the stage November 1-5.

"Nobody can every release Wendy but we will do what we can to fill in so she can come back strong than ever," Cummings said in a comment under the post.

Wendy Williams burst onto THE TALK show scene in July 2009 with the launch of the nationally-syndicated weekday program, "The Wendy Williams Show." Called a "breakthrough in daytime" by The New York Times, "The Wendy Williams Show," which airs in 52 countries, on BET at midnight, and is now in its thirteenth season. Williams interviews countless A-list celebrity guests from the perspective of a fan, as she asks the questions that her audience wants to hear. A lover of classic television, Williams' TV idols growing up were Dinah Shore and Merv Griffin. Williams previously starred as Matron Mama Morton in Chicago on Broadway.
