Wendy Williams’ giant poster taken down outside show’s NYC studio just ONE day after lackluster series finale

WENDY Williams’ giant photo has been taken down from outside of her show’s NYC studios – one day after her lackluster series finale, The Sun can exclusively reveal.

The iconic billboard that greeted The Wendy Williams Show’s live audience on 26 Street in Manhattan was unceremoniously removed on Monday, June 20, just one business day after the finale was taped last week.

The large smiling Wendy poster remained up for the finale’s taping Thursday, with the studio dark on Friday, June 17, when the last episode – which left Wendy fans largely disappointed – actually aired.

It had disappeared from the building’s facade by Tuesday morning, leaving a large swath of the studio’s exterior walls bare.

Ace The Sun previously exclusively reported, production planned to swiftly remove all traces of Wendy from the studios that she called home for 13 years.

A source close to production previously exclusively told The Sun that memorabilia from The Wendy Williams Show was discarded following the airing of the show’s bittersweet finale on Friday.

As The Sun reported, fans were heartbroken after the finale aired without an appearance from Wendy, who has not starred in her namesake show for nearly a year.

The source said: “The wigs are still there since she didn’t come and get them, so they’re being thrown out.”

The instantly recognizable “Big Purple Chair” will sadly meet the same fate.

“The chair is just going to be thrown out,” the insider added.

“Production is not even bothering to try to donate the chair to a museum, like The View did with their original table after ten years.

“They gave it to The Smithsonian.”

Last week it was confirmed that The Wendy Williams Show had officially been canceled after 13 years on the air.

With Friday’s episode being the last ever, viewers were hoping to see the host make an appearance.

A series of guest hosts had been filling in for her for months, with Sherri Shepherd eventually leading the pack and taking over.

While the comedian felt love for Wendy during the big finale, fans were shocked and angry not to see Wendy show up to say goodbye.

They blamed the talk show for not having her back for the final broadcast, especially after the program had been on the air for over a decade.

‘DISRESPECTFUL’

One upset viewer tweeted: “I think it’s kinda foul and disrespectful to have the last episode of Wendy without Wendy.

“The ‘machine’ doesn’t care.”

Unfortunately, the tribute montage at the end of the broadcast wasn’t all that fans had hoped it would be.

The montage lasted about seven minutes, but viewers ripped the program for not making the whole finale one big tribute.

“What’s crazy is the ‘tribute’ was just a montage of the episode promos they ran over the years,” one furious fan wrote.

“They did a mashup of all the teasers.”

While fans were upset not to see Wendy in the final episode, The Sun exclusively revealed earlier this week that she refused to give a farewell message.

The source revealed that Wendy was asked to appear in the finale but declined the invitation.

“They were not doing it live, but asked Wendy for pre-taped video,” the insider shared of the show’s hope to get the mom of one on her stage one last time.

“She still said no,” the source said.

“She’s not at peace with what happened. She’s not happy with it.”
