Wendy Williams Announces 'Extended Break' From Her Show Due to Health Issues - Read Her Statement

Wendy Williams is taking off even more time from The Wendy Williams Show.

After delaying her return to her television series in 2019, the 54-year-old daytime TV host revealed she’s taking even more time off for her health in a statement issued on Friday (January 18).

“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,” the statement reads.

“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.”
