Wendy Williams Extends Break From Talk Show Due to Graves’ Disease Complications



Wendy Williams has extended her break from her talk show, “The Wendy Williams Show,” due to complications from Graves’ Disease.

Before going on break in December, Williams informed her studio audience that she had fractured her shoulder.  She never explained how, but she was seen with her arm hidden under baggy shirts for several shows. The host was originally slated to return to her hosting duties on January 14, 2019, but her return date has since been pushed back twice now.

In a statement from ‘The Hunter Family,’ released earlier today, it now seems as though Williams is taking an extended break with no confirmation date of when she will return.

The statement reads: “Over the past few days, Wendy has experienced complications regarding her Graves’ Disease that will require treatment. Wendy will be under the strict supervision of her physicians, and as part of her care, there will be significant time spent in the hospital.

Though many believe Williams is ill, there are some naysayers who believe that something more serious is going on in the host’s personal life. For months rumors have been circulating that Wendy and husband Kevin’s marriage is in danger. Both parties continue to deny that there is trouble in paradise.

I know I make some people cringe. But I also know my willingness to expose myself, warts and all, is part of the reason people are drawn to me. With me, what you see is what you get…”—Wendy Williams, ESSENCE
