American talk show host Wendy Williams had canceled her recent appearances as she is facing health issues. There is a statement on her Instagram page which says that she would not be promoting activities next week. She said that she will be on air for the premier of the 13th season of The Wendy Williams Show on September 20.
A statement on her official page on Instagram stated that Wendy was dealing with a few ongoing health issues and was undergoing further evaluations. It also noted that that her promotional activities in the following week would not take place. It also said that she couldn’t wait to be back in her purple chair for the premier of season 13 of her show The Wendy Williams Show.
PEOPLE reached out to her representative but did not get a response.
The talk show host took a break from her talk show last May, due to health issues. In May 2020, a spokesperson told PEOPLE that the 57-year-old host was feeling “fatigue” as a result of symptoms of Graves disease.
In February 2018, Wendy Williams said that she was suffering from Graves disease, an auto immune disorder and the doctor had asked her to take a vacation of three weeks. She told the women in her show that women more than men had to “stop putting everything first because if we’re not good, they’re not good.”
In March, the talk show host told PEOPLE that she had been diagnosed with both Graves disease and hyperthyroidism, 19 years ago. She also said that it was not necessary to have both the diseases together, though she had them.
The star has been facing multiple health problems in the past few years and has had to take breaks on and off. There was a time when Wendy Williams had even thought that her problems could be due to menopause.
After the statement was posted on her official page, many followers of Wendy Williams posted get well messages, sent positive energy and some of them said that they were praying for her.
