Michael Rapaport stepped in to guest-host “Wendy Williams” today after the planned guest host Sherri Shepherd had “emergency surgery” on Sunday.

“Due to appendicitis, Sherri Shepherd underwent an emergency surgery yesterday,” Shepherd’s publicist said in a statement on Monday. “The procedure was successful and Ms. Shepherd is doing fine and resting. She is absolutely devastated that she will not be able to guest host ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ today, but she is following doctors orders and expected to make a full recovery. Thank you all for understanding and respecting her privacy.”

Both Rapaport and Shepherd have guest-hosted the daytime talk show recently as Wendy Williams attends to her own medical issues. Shepherd’s episodes have generally been higher-rated than Rapaport’s.
