“As soon as she’s ready, she will be back in her treasured purple chair.”
Wendy Williams’ talk show has been rescheduled due to “serious health complications.”
Wendy Williams will not host the Season 13 premiere of her eponymous talk show next week due to ongoing health issues.
“The Wendy Williams Show” announced in a statement on its Instagram on Tuesday that the 57-year-old talk show presenter “is making improvement but is having major problems as a direct result of Graves’ Disease and her thyroid issue.
”Williams is “under medical monitoring and meets with her medical team on a daily basis,” according to the show.
The Season 13 premiere of “The Wendy Williams Show” will broadcast next Monday, but Williams will be replaced for the time being by guest presenters and panels who will be announced “shortly,” according to the show.
“Wendy has been a cherished and dependable member of the Debmar-Mercury family for the past 12 years”. The statement went on to say, “We want her health to be her main concern.” “She’ll be back in her prized purple chair as soon as she’s ready. We appreciate if Wendy’s privacy is respected, as well as all of the good wishes from her fans, station partners, and advertisers.” Fans and friends of Williams quickly swamped the post with messages wishing her a speedy recovery. They also expressed their love and prayers for her.
“Wendy, I adore you!” Take as much time as you need to become healthier!” Milly Almodovar penned the piece.
“Wendy [heart emoji], we adore you.” Devyn Simone said, “Praying for you and sending love.”
“This is how you demonstrate your commitment to your craft!” I’m sending all of Wendy’s healing wishes and love to her and her family!” AJ Gibson penned the piece.
The new season of “The Wendy Williams Show” was scheduled to start on September 18. Williams, on the other hand, tested positive for COVID-19, so the case was rescheduled until October 4. An unnamed insider told Page Six at the time, “Wendy is doing well and on the mend.” “[Executives] informed workers that the show will resume on Oct. 4, and Wendy is ready to get back to work.”
However, the company announced in a late September Instagram update that the premiere would be postponed to October 18 due to Williams’ health issues. “Her breakthrough COVID case is no longer an issue, and she has tested negative,” according to the statement, “but she is still coping with some chronic medical issues.”
