In a statement, the 53-year-old also revealed that Jerry O'Connell will be filling in until she's back. She said, “Jerry has been such a good friend to me and to the show. We're happy to welcome him as a guest host while I'm out getting much-needed rest. Can't wait to get back in my purple chair!”
Jerry said in a separate statement, “I am so excited to help out and fill in. We all know nobody can fill the purple chair like Wendy, but I am honored to sit with her co-hosts and to bring the many fans all the Hot Topics they love. Like Wendy tells us, I am going to Say It Like I Mean It.”
