On her Wednesday show, Wendy Williams announced to viewers that she will be taking two weeks off from live filming. She has been getting a lot of flack from the Bey hive for saying Beyonce needs “auto tune” along with J Lo and Fergie, however, that’s not the cause of this sudden need to take a hiatus.
Wendy explained that she has Graves’ disease and has always been open about her condition of overactive thyroids. The talk show host went on to explain that Graves’ disease also affects the thyroids and can cause anxiety, irritability, weight loss, moist hands, difficulty swallowing, and feeling “like birds are swimming around my head.”
This isn’t the first health scare that Wendy has recently had. We all remember when she fainted on air during her Halloween special. However, this time the doctor ordered her to take a vacation, which will cause her to miss filming. She said, “My doctor has prescribed, are you ready? Three weeks of vacation.”
Wendy said she wasn’t happy about it though, “I was pissed. Encore performances, really?” US Weekly spoke to one of the talk show host’s reps and was told, “Wendy is a true champion and has never missed a day of work.” They did point out that Wendy’s health is what’s most important, though. However, Wendy says she will only be gone for two weeks in opposed to the three she was ordered to take by her doctor.
Get well soon from the LIVe Squad, Wendy!
