In related news, Wendy made use of the episode to pay tribute to actor John Witherspoon who passed away on Tuesday, October 29 at the age of 77. Even though Wendy didn't personally know the late actor, who was known for his role as John "Pops" Williams on "The Wayans Bros." sitcom, his sudden death affected her greatly.
"I didn't know him know him, but he'd been on my radio show," she told the audience while crying. "He'd been here on the TV show. We didn't hear that he was sick. He died suddenly."
"He was Pops! He was in 'Boomerang'," she continued. "He was only 77 years old, and we never saw him sickly. He was with it and just…that guy. So, shout-out to his wife, to his two sons, and the rest of his family and friends. Rest in peace John Witherspoon."
Witherspoon's family announced the heartbreaking news in a statement on Wednesday. "It is with deepest sorrow that we can confirm our beloved husband and father, John Witherspoon, one of the hardest working men in show business, died today at his home in Sherman Oaks at the age of 77," the statement read.
"He is survived by his wife Angela, and his sons JD, Alexander, and a large family. We are all in shock, please give us a minute for a moment in privacy and we will celebrate his life and his work together. John used to say, 'I'm no big deal,', but he was a huge deal to us," the statement concluded.
