Long-running talk show host Wendy Williams told viewers on Wednesday that she was taking time off from the show due to her battle with Graves’ disease.
The host of “The Wendy Williams Show” made the announcement during her syndicated show, saying she will take three weeks off starting on Thursday to focus on her health. This comes just months after the talk show host, on camera, had bulging eyes then passed out while dressed up as the Statue of Liberty during a Halloween episode. Many questioned her health status then, but she replied that she had just overheated. Today, the popular gossip queen came clean.
“My doctor has prescribed … are you ready? As of today, three weeks of vacation,” she told the audience. “What? Who are you? I was pissed.”
Williams, 53, said a recent checkup with her doctor for hyperthyroidism, which she has dealt with for years, revealed new problems.
“My thyroid has been totally cattywampus,” she said. “That is the eye thing that you all have been seeing.”
