The Wendy Williams Show is taking a breather. Deadline reports the syndicated TV show is taking a brief hiatus due to host Wendy Williams’ health.
Recently, Williams announced she’s been diagnosed with Graves disease and hyperthyroidism. As a result, The Wendy Williams Show will take a three-week break so Williams can focus on her health.
A spokesperson for The Wendy Williams Show has released a statement:
Wendy is a true champion and has never missed a day of work. But her health and well-being must be put before all else. Wendy has been openly dealing with her Graves’ Disease for many years in addition to hyperthyroidism. Yesterday, Wendy’s doctor prescribed a necessary three weeks of rest to get her levels and medication in sync. The show will be in repeats during this unplanned hiatus. A live show was produced today so that Wendy could speak directly to her fans and explain her condition.”
