Wendy Williams takes Hiatus from Talk Show Due to Graves’ Disease

Talk show host Wendy Williams announced today (Feb. 21) that she would be taking a hiatus from her show to focus on her health.

“My doctor has prescribed … are you ready? As of today, three weeks of vacation,” she told the audience. “What? Who are you? I was pissed.”

In October 2017, Williams made headlines when she fainted during a live episode of her talk show. Williams said the event was due to heat exhaustion. Since then, fans have noticed that Williams has been acting different.

Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder that affects the thyroid and ones blood pressure among other things.

Williams canceled several shows last week after announcing that she was experiencing flu-like symptoms.

“I’ll be back in two [weeks],” Williams joked during her show on Wednesday. “I’m not an heiress. Who is going to pay my bills? Are you serious? I’m just saying, I come from working class.”
