WENDY Williams fans have become furious after the troubled TV host was snubbed during the series finale of her own talk show.
Earlier this week, it was confirmed that The Wendy Williams Show has officially been canceled after 13 years on air.
With Friday’s episode being the last episode ever of Wendy Williams’ talk show, 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 sent love to Wendy during the big finale, fans were shocked and angry to not see Wendy show up to say goodbye.
They blasted the talk show for not having her back for the final broadcast, especially after the program being on the air for more than a decade.

One upset viewer tweeted: “I think it’s kinda foul/disrespectful to have the last episode of Wendy, without Wendy.
“The ‘machine’ doesn’t care.”
A second angrily wrote: “What a weird show.
“‘Welcome to the final #WendyWilliams show. Let's talk about her like she's dead cuz we didn't invite her here today…’"
“How is it @WendyWilliams last show and don't have her host her final show smfh,” another wondered.
A fourth called it “so disrespectful.”
They added: “Watching for closure purposes and I’m sure the montage will be well assembled, but she should be there.”
Unfortunately, the tribute montage at the end of the broadcast wasn’t all that fans had hoped it would be.
The montage lasted for about seven minutes, but viewers blasted the show 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.”
Said another: “This PowerPoint of videos for the END of @WendyWilliams is SOOOO WRONG.
“WENDY DESERVED BETTER!”
A third upset viewer tweeted: “It’s extremely disrespectful.
“So sad for Wendy. She/we deserve better than this.
“It’s actually disgusting. Typical corporate behavior, so turned off.”
The ailing former presenter, 57, had insisted back in March that she would return to the daytime show this summer.
However, on Tuesday, a show spokesperson confirmed that the show is officially over and that the final episode would air on Friday.
They also hinted to Deadline that the host wouldn't appear in it, saying: “The final original episode of The Wendy Williams Show will air with a video tribute to the iconic host."
While fans were upset not to see Wendy in the final episode, The Sun exclusively revealed this week that she refused to give a farewell message.
The source revealed that Wendy was asked to appear in the finale but refused.

"They were not doing it live, but asked Wendy for pre-taped video," the insider shared of the show's hope to get the 57-year-old 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."
