Prayers up for the Queen of media!

Wendy Williams is dealing with health issues and has to postpone her show for the third time.

As reported on The Jasmine Brand, the talk show host won’t be returning to record new episodes of The Wendy Show right now. Starting October 18, the network will replay old episodes. The statement on Wendy’s social media says,

“The Wendy Williams Show will start airing originals on Monday, October 18, with an exciting lineup of guest hosts and panels to be announced shortly.” The statement went on to briefly speak on the health issues Wendy is dealing with.

“Wendy continues to be under medical supervision and meets with her medical team on a daily basis. She is making progress but is experiencing serious complications as a direct result of Graves’ Disease and her thyroid condition. It has been determined that more time is needed before she is able to return to her live hosting duties.”

It’s not clear when Wendy will be back as her health is her first priority. The statement concluded with, “Wendy is a valued and stalwart member of the Debmar-Mercury family and has been so for 12 years. We want her health to be her top priority. As soon as she’s ready, she will be back in her treasured purple chair.

We very much appreciate the respect for Wendy’s privacy, as well as all the good wishes from her fans, station partners, and advertisers.”


Wishing Wendy a speedy and full recovery!
