Wendy Williams Talks about Her Health after Returning to Show for First Time in 2 Months
Wendy Williams is back to her daytime talk show for the first time since December and fans couldn’t be happier.
The host for the beloved ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ expressed her gratitude towards fans upon returning to her show after nearly two months.
Williams, who fractured her shoulder in December, thanked the audience for “waiting” and said she “missed” them at the top of her show before opening up about her medical condition.
The star shared how they were supposed to be two weeks off for Christmas but she ended up taking an extended break because she felt “thyroid-ish”.
“They adjusted my meds. If you don’t know about thyroid disease, it’s a lifelong thing and they are always adjusting stuff. It can really screw you over,” said Williams as she spoke about her absence.
She then revealed how her Grave’s disease caused health complications after doctors adjusted her medication.
The audience cheered on as Williams continued to thank her fans for being patient during her hiatus.
During her absence, the show produced original episodes different hosts including Michael Rapaport, Jerry O’Connell, and Nick Cannon.
This is not the first time that Williams’ health compelled her to take a break from her show. After she was diagnosed with Graves disease last year, her show went on a three-week hiatus so she could focus on her health.
Williams also fainted on-air during her show’s Halloween episode on October 31. Shortly after the incident, her fans grew concerned when she began slurring her speech during an interview.
She later took to Instagram to apologize for the “less than stellar” interview, explaining how she had to take pain meds for a hairline fracture on her upper arm.
‘The Wendy Williams Show’ airs weekdays on station owned and operated by Fox. The show, which is on its 10th season, has been successfully running since 2008.
