How is she doing?

Sherri Shepherd was unable to show up for her stint as guest host on “The Wendy Williams Show” on Monday.

“Due to appendicitis, Sherri Shepherd underwent an emergency surgery yesterday. The procedure was successful and Ms. Shepherd is doing fine and resting,” the talk show said in a statement.

“She is absolutely devastated that she will not be able to guest-host ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ today, but she is following doctors’ orders and expected to make a full recovery.

“Thank you all for understanding and respecting her privacy.”

The original date for the show to return was scheduled for September 20th, but the Season 13 premiere was delayed for weeks after Williams tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19.

However, prior to her COVID diagnosis, Williams, 57, had to take a step back from the purple chair due to “ongoing health issues,” which left her unable to start or complete any of the promotional duties set up for the talk show.

Fat Joe and Remy Ma will take over the first week of January, while Michael Rapaport will return to host the daytime talk show the second week.

Stars like Da Brat, Niecy Nash, Kel Mitchell and “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fixture Porsha Williams are all set to appear on the show this week as guests.

Wendy Williams will not be back in her purple chair until at least February 2022.

The gossip maven was recently seen leaving a Miami Wellness Center barefoot wearing a red Versace robe saying, “Wendy is doing fabulous.”
