Earlier this month, the popular talk show host postponed her return to her talk show for a third time.
Her family released a statement explaining that she’s suffered complications from Graves’ Disease. During her absence, repeat episodes aired and the show continued with a panel. The statement read:
A Note from The Hunter Family
As Wendy Williams Hunter previously shared, she fractured her shoulder and has been on the mend. 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. Despite her strong desire to return, she is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being.
Wendy thanks everyone in advance for their well-wishes and for respecting her and The Hunter Family’s privacy during this time.
Statement from Debmar-Mercury
For over ten years, Wendy has been a vital part of the Debmar-Mercury family. We wholeheartedly support Wendy in this decision to take the time she needs and we will welcome her back with open arms the moment she is ready.
The Wendy Williams Show will air repeat episodes the week of January 21st and will produce original episodes with a variety of hosts starting the week of January 28th.
Let’s continue to send love, light and prayers for a speedy recovery.
