Wendy Williams Demands $100 Million For Podcast Deal, Execs Concerned About Her Health
Wendy Williams has been secretly making moves for her grand comeback — but the companies she’s talking to are allegedly concerned about her ability to show up to work.
Sources close to the 57-year-old entertainer revealed the bombshell news to The Sun.
The outlet claimed Williams has received countless offers for a podcast ever since she stopped appearing on The Wendy Williams Show — due to her ongoing personal issues.
An insider claimed Williams believes the new show should go to one of the two biggest podcast companies, iHeart Radio or Spotify.
Williams became a household name in New York radio many years before her talk show debuted on Fox. The source told The Sun that Williams believes she’s worth big money like Joe Rogan.
Rogan signed a $100 million podcast deal with Spotify. “She sees Joe Rogan has a $100million podcast deal, and now she wants that kind of money,” the source added.
The problem is iHeart Radio “doesn’t like controversy” which leaves the only home as Spotify. However, sources say Wendy would need to prove herself until Spotify signed the deal. – Source
