Wendy Williams Takes Hiatus Due To Health Issues

Written by

Wendy Williams has decided to take some much needed time off to focus on her health.

Williams’ team took to Instagram to share the news and update fans on her current health conditions. Her decision to freeze production on the show stems from her ongoing battle with Graves’ Disease; an autoimmune disorder that affects the thyroid.

Wendy and her team have been filming episodes remotely since the beginning of the lockdown but as of now there is no official return date.

Wendy’s health has been a media focal point for quite some time now, especially since fainting live on air back in 2017. Last year, she took some time off to focus on her health while Nick Cannon took over as her temporary replacement. And in 2018, she took a 3-week hiatus as well due to complications with the disease.

Despite production delays, “The Wendy Williams Show” has been renewed through the 2021-2022 season.
