Also taking up hosting duties are Devyn Simone from MTV’s The Challenge: Aftermath, TV personality Bevy Smith, Variety Correspondent Elizabeth Wagmeister and comedian Michal Yo, who will all return to host on Nov. 22.

“Thanksgiving week kicks off on Monday, November 22, with some of Wendy’s favorite hot talk panelists — @devynsimone, @bevysmith, @ewagmeister and @michaelyo,” the show posted on Instagram. “Then, hip-hop icons @fatjoe & @remyma will take the stage on Tuesday, November 23 and Wednesday, November 24.”

Then from Monday, Nov 29 through Friday, Dec. 10, Leah Remini and Michelle Visage return as guest co-hosts, the show said in a separate post.

As previously reported, the premiere date for the daytime talk show’s 13th season was pushed back several times due to Williams contracting a breakthrough case of COVID-19, and complications from her previous diagnosis of Graves’ Disease.

Over the past few weeks, the show has had a string of guest hosts, including Remini, Sherri Shepherd, Whitney Cummings, Michael Rapaport, Bill Bellamy, Jerry Springer and Steve Wilkos.

The show saw a big boost in ratings when Shepherd filled in. That week it landed a 0.9 rating, according to The Wrap. Those were the best ratings this season.
