“The crew had a big party celebrating what they considered a season well done,” we’re told, and “the next day [some of them] got calls saying they’d been let go.”
We’re told execs want to retool the show, adding more current-affairs coverage and pop culture.
Wendy Williams found herself at the center of a furor after saying she doesn’t believe in the NAACP or historically black colleges, because there is no “white” equivalent.
She quickly apologized for the remarks.
Show reps declined to comment.
