The Wendy Williams Show host has checked into a wellness centre "seeking support to manage her general health difficulties." She had to take a break from the programme in 2021 owing to major health issues.
In a statement given to EW, Williams spokesman Shawn Zanotti said, "She is taking some time to focus on her health and wellness as she prepares for a significant comeback for The Wendy Experience Podcast at the next level in her career."
The Wendy Williams Show guest host Sherri Shepherd started her new daytime talk show two days prior to the announcement that Williams had decided to seek help.
Williams' self-titled programme was replaced by the Sherri television series in the syndication time slot.Williams has been candid in the past about her battles with addiction and Graves' disease as well as her current battles with lymphedema.
She provided a health update on Good Morning America in March and mentioned her wish to resume hosting her programme. She answered, "Give me approximately three months."
There are personal matters that I must attend to before I can return and be liberated and prepared to carry out my duties. Williams eventually did not return to the series before its last episode.
The Hollywood Reporter said last month that two unnamed sources had told them that the employees of the programme had asked higher-ups about Williams' sobriety and that episodes frequently had to be vetted before airing.
