Remini will fill in for the ailing Wendy Williams from Tuesday to Thursday next week. "Wendy's shoes are hard to fill, so we needed to find the right fit," executive producer David Perler said in a statement Thursday. "Leah will bring a lot of fun and energy to our viewers with a few surprises along the way." For Monday's premiere, Williams' "favorite hot talk panelists" — Devyn Simone, Bevy Smith, Elizabeth Wagmeister and Michael Yo — will helm the hour-long episode. Together, they will "tackle the juiciest headlines in the news and share their take on the hottest topics."
