Wendy Williams Thanks Fans For Concern Following Weird Behavior
If you’ve been watching The Wendy Williams Show recently, you’d know she fractured her arm and missed some shows earlier this week. Trying to power through, Wendy made it to work for the rest of the week after resting on Monday–but many fans noticed that the host was acting really odd during Hot Topics. So odd, in fact, that Wendy’s Youtube channel never uploaded the footage like they usually do.
Some of the behavior that has fans concerned–including Williams slurring her words, looking confused, and not being able to properly get her words out–is present in her interview with The Love, which you can watch here.
The questionable behavior got fans worried, thinking back to the time that Wendy fainted live on air after behaving in a similar way. The host even brought out a chair for her to sit in while she did “Ask Wendy” with her audience members, raising suspicions that she couldn’t even stand up.
It looks like fans weren’t the only ones to notice that Wendy’s behavior was super off, because she ended up addressing the incident just a few hours after Thursday’s episode aired. Williams took to Instagram to post both a thank you and an apology to fans:
Wendy attributes her slurred speech and slowed reaction time to pain medication for her arm fracture, which she said she’s never taken in her life. She goes on to say that she appreciates everyone’s genuine concern and promises a “better Wendy in 2019.”
Feel better, Wendy!
