Actress and TV personality Sherri Shepherd chatted with Andy Cohen on Wednesday's episode of Watch What Happens Live!, reflecting on Wendy Williams' legacy.

She said,

"Oh my gosh, she made her own path. What Wendy does, nobody can recreate, none of the guest hosts," said Shepherd, who recently has served as a guest host on The Wendy William Show as Williams herself has been dealing with health issues and financial problems.

It was announced this week that Shepherd would be debuting her very own daytime talk show, Sherri, as The Wendy Williams Show comes to an end. She said,

"I love her fearlessness, and that is something I want to emulate and keep going, She opened up a lot of doors, and she's up there with the greats."

Shepherd directly sent thanks to Williams for letting her take the reins as a guest host and explained how much it means to her to get the chance to host her own talk show.

She shared that her show "is going to look different, it's going to feel different, but we are going to have a lot of fun, we're gonna have a lot of laughs, we're gonna have a lot of joy."

Shepherd also told Cohen that she is not replacing Williams, saying,

"Because no one can replace the queen, I’m not trying to at all. This show was specifically crafted for her. No one can do this format but Wendy, nobody can sit in a purple chair and sip the tea like Wendy Williams... Wendy Williams created a unique brand that folks are always gonna love and talk about."
