Wendy Williams Has Been Focusing on Her ‘Personal and Physical Health’ Amid Talk Show Hiatus


Where exactly is Wendy Williams? After postponing the return of The Wendy Williams Show indefinitely, the talk show host is using her time off to fight for her health, a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

Show reps explained that Williams, who’s had Graves’ disease for years, was suffering new complications — symptoms can include bulging eyes, weakness, irritability and shakiness — before her extended hiatus. The 54-year-old’s break will include “significant time … in the hospital” to “focus on her personal and physical well-being.”

“She’s fighting to get back to a clean bill of health,” a source close to the star tells Us. “The struggle of being the main centerpiece of the show, day in and out, while fighting Graves’ disease has been a real battle.”
