In her place, a panel of “Hot Talkers” will host in her absence beginning on January 14.

“As she has for the past 10 years, Wendy delivers an incomparable live talk show day in and day out and we want to give her the best opportunity to heal and recover. Wendy has our complete and unwavering support and we look forward to her return to the iconic purple chair,” said producers Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein.

Wendy claimed to have suffered an arm injury in December, then returned to the show and faced criticism for her seemingly odd behavior, which she later claimed was due to taking pain medication.

Wendy was originally set to return on January 7. The “Hot Talker” panelists will be revealed on Monday (January 14).

Wendy Williams Issues Statement After Viewers Question Her Behavior: 'I Promise a Better Wendy in 2019'

Wendy Williams is speaking out regarding her behavior during recent tapings of The Wendy Williams Show.

“I sincerely apologize if you feel that today’s show was less than stellar. I’m on your TV screens every day wanting to spread laughter, entertainment and cheer. As I reported earlier in the week, I have a hairline fracture on my upper arm, which hurts like hell. I’ve never broken a bone or experienced a fracture in my life. In the key place where the fracture is, and trying to scurry around and do too much, I am now paying the price,” she wrote on her Instagram on Thursday (December 20).

“I’ve never taken a pain medication in my life (except when I got snatched over 20 years ago) until this week. I did that to power through and try to deliver a great show for you, against the better judgement of the many people around me who genuinely care for my well-being. I really do ride or die for my craft and give 200%. Not to mention everyone is aware at this point about my thyroid condition (don’t cry for me Argentina). For all my fellow thyroid sufferers, you know what the deal is. And for those that don’t: I encourage you to please read up.”

“Needless to say, whatever today’s performance was with the legendary The Lox, who said such nice things, I have no regrets and I appreciate everyone’s genuine concern for my wellness and care.
I promise you a better Wendy in 2019. I will get some much needed rest and healing over these next couple of weeks. (Yes I am definitely juicing over the next couple of weeks). Sorry again. I love you all. Happy Holidays!”

Iggy Azalea Slams Wendy Williams, Throws Massive Shade in Series of Tweets

Iggy Azalea is throwing massive shade at Wendy Williams.

This seems to all stem from Wendy‘s commentary on her show last week concerning Iggy‘s fight with 15-year-old Bhad Bhabie.

Well, Iggy did not take well to Wendy‘s comments and tweeted moments ago, “Imagine having to F*CK Wendy Williams.”

Among other things, she added, “I guess I just feel like if you’re pushing 60 without ever having lived an entire year on this planet where we could deem you attractive let alone a serve with a voice that would make any dick soft – you should keep it a whole lot cuter on certain commentary.”

See everything she tweeted…
