TMZ is reporting that Wendy Williams is taking time away from her show after dealing with "serious" health complications as a direct result of Graves' Disease and her thyroid condition.
The Wendy Williams Show made an official announcement that its host will be out as she continues to be under medical supervision. The show will premiere on Oct 18 as scheduled but will feature a series of guest hosts and panels that will be announced in the coming days.
"Wendy is a valued and stalwart member of the Debmar-Mercury family and has been so for 12 years. We want her health to be her top priority. As soon as she's ready, she will be back in her treasured purple chair," the statement from the show added.
Williams was recently taken to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation in addition to having COVID-19, though she was asymptomatic.
