Wendy Williams Announces 3-Week Hiatus
After taking days off for “flu-like symptoms”, Wendy Williams is announcing that she’s going on a three-week hiatus. The talk show host made the announcement Wednesday after telling the audience that she has Graves’ disease and has been having hyper-thyroid complications.
“My doctor has prescribed … are you ready? As of today, three weeks of vacation,” she told the audience. “What? Who are you? I was pissed.”
According to Williams, she’ll try to be back in two weeks instead of three.
“I’m not an heiress. Who is going to pay my bills? Are you serious? I’m just saying, I come from working class.”
The show will run old episodes during her hiatus. Williams previously told viewers that she was battling the disease amid comments about her bulging eyes.
