Wendy Williams and Nick Cannon Explain What They Did to Avoid Things Going Off the Rails from a Career Skid


What do folks do when they need to get-away? Well it depends on the reason for such a move. It could simply be stepping away from the grind with a quick weekend trip or vacation R&R. Sometimes it’s for health reasons as was reported in the news about women’s basketball head coach C. Vivian Stringer.

Wendy Williams and Nick Cannon have been down that road too. Williams returned to her talk show after stepping away for a couple months. As rumors swirled around issues in her marriage, she says it was more about dealing with Graves disease. Now she’s back as her story became its own hot topic.

Cannon once had to pull-back his regular schedule when dealing with blood clots in his lung. He left his radio show and reduced the demand on his time. He has since cranked things up again with his various hosting, producing and podcasting roles in media. He made sure to avoid a spinout in his dreams.


They took similar steps to avoid things going off the rails from a career skid. In part they had to manage how their story became tabloid news. Williams, the one-time radio gossip queen finds her own story making headlines. Some fans aren’t satisfied with the explanation but maybe the dust will soon settle.

Cannon was a fill-in host while she was out. She kept him up-to-date on what she was going through. Their bond might be in knowing there are times when ‘self’ gotta come first. True, it takes a lot of skill, will and at times getting over a hill to come first in life. But it’s ok for self to come first when there’s need for:

  1. Self-aware

Cannon is the host of the new reality show Masked Singer. Artist T-Pain was the first winner and he’s off to rebranding himself. Most folks know him as a rapper. But he knew that he had singing chops behind the mask. He showed fans how being self-aware is knowing what you bring even when others can’t see it.

  1. Self-care

Williams and Cannon had similar moments of having to deal with self-care. At the time, he left his morning radio show and cut back on his other duties. Sometimes self-care isn’t just about the physical. It might also be the spiritual and emotional. In the case of Williams, it might even be relational and her marriage.

  1. Self-motivated

There’re times when the grind can get in the way of the love. Williams doesn’t want that love at home to fade. But the grind can also take away from the love of the game. It’s that hustle-love of the game that keeps us self-motivated. Even beyond health reasons, being self-motivated is important to level-up your play.

  1. Self-assured


After his America’s Got Talent hosting gig ended, Cannon stepped-away for a bit. Since then he’s returned to TV on Masked Singer wearing a Turban. He says that came from spiritual reflection. Clearly, he took some time for ‘self’ which is now seen in his latest swagger of being self-assured.

Williams will be back to her old self, giving fans new reasons to watch. Some might want to know more about the rumors behind her time-off. Cannon is back to ramping up his work in showbiz. They know if you want to ‘run run run’ in the game you need to be self-aware and do self-care to have ‘fun fun fun.’

Tip: If you want to crank-up your best work and ‘run run run’ in the game you gotta be self-motivated and self-assured as you have ‘fun fun fun.’

Who’s ready to take a wild ride on the loves train? Well, that’s not quite how things went at Wrestlemania. But there was love in the air as John Cena proposed to his girl. There was more happening in Orlando as Jimmy Fallon visited his Universal Attraction. Fallon & Cena made a fantasy ride in Orlando seem surreal.

The new ‘Ride Through New York’ at Universal is getting major reviews. Fallon told the NY Press that “It’s an idea I had seven years ago. I pitched it to the Universal Theme Park folks and they politely passed.” Now the ride is here, proving how a dollar, a dream and a destiny need good timing to come together.

After getting a ‘no’ from park execs on his proposal he went on doing other things. As the Tonight Show became his main thing, Fallon says he got a call back saying they were ready to rethink the idea. Three years have passed since and now Fallon has a show and his own ride as a ‘life-imitates-art attraction.’

While that happened in one part of Orlando, Cena had another kind of proposal for his long-time girlfriend after winning their Wrestlemania match. Thankfully he got a ‘yes’ on his first try. It felt like destiny as his mother was there to see him perform and propose. His good friend Fallon was also in the audience.

They know in pursuing a personal relationship or a professional dream that when you dig deeper and think outside of the box good things can happen. Maybe Fallon’s idea at the time seemed premature or presumptuous. But the ‘gods’ had it come together after a while with the right biz players and life partner.

Ready to take ride on loves train? Well let’s just make it plain. Saying how it went down. At Wrestlemania meltdown. With fresh love in the air. John Cena gives girlfriend a stare. Proposing on Orlando stage. Hit social media page. Fallon did a little thing too. Opening new attraction so folks come on thru.

Like a ride through NYC. As a Universal magical spree. Getting major buzz and reviews. Fly, but no need to take off shoes. Idea he had seven years ago. Now it’s real and a go. Pitched to those who call the shots. The answer was no space on the lots. Now peeps set for priming. Dollar, dream & destiny’s timing.

Moving from a ‘no’ by park execs. His passion muscles he would flex. Doing other things meantime. As Tonight Show became his dime. Says he got a call back. So his vision he would unpack. As the idea got reset for another round. Look at what they done found. For a ‘life-imitates-art’ fun-filled compound.

That happened in one part of town. As Cena was throwing down. Making another proposal thing. By putting on the ring. After winning event match. He had a full house to watch. With ‘yes’ right there on her mind. He knew she was the best find. Felt like destiny couldn’t hide. Mother & friends there on the side.

Whether love interest or pure dream. Gotta dig deeper for the winning team. Thinking outside of the box too. Then good things happen for you. Maybe Fallon idea seemed premature. But now more than money-making dujour.  The ‘gods’ had it come together. The right players, partner and life’s pleasure.


Tip: Things can feel surreal when the ‘gods’ bring together the right players, partner and life’s pleasure.
