What’s the latest on Wendy Williams?

Wendy Williams has been battling various illnesses for 19 years.

In May 2021, Wendy took a hiatus from her talk show due to health concerns related to her Graves’ disease.

A rep for her show told People at the time that the star was “struggling with symptoms of her Graves’ disease, which causes fatigue.”

She also confessed to the magazine that she was diagnosed with Graves’ disease and hyperthyroidism 19 years ago.

Williams said at the time: “I feel a hundred percent better than I did a few months ago. I had a storm going through my body, that’s the best way I can explain it.”

“It came from me for neglecting my six-month endocrinology appointment.

“I have Graves’ disease and an overactive thyroid.

“If you have one, you don’t necessarily have to have the other, but I have both and I was diagnosed with both 19 years ago.”

Wendy has also battled Covid and there remained question marks over whether she will return to that small screen this year.

However, in March 2022, Wendy claimed on Good Morning America that she would be returning to her show “in three months” and that she has “the body of a 25-year-old.”

However, on June 14, 2022, it was announced that The Wendy Williams Show was officially canceled.
