AceShowbiz - Wendy Williams is putting her health above everything. The TV personality recently took to her Instagram account to announce to her followers that she would be taking time off "[email protected]" show as she's been struggling from Graves' disease.
"Recently, Wendy has been dealing with symptoms from her Graves' disease which is causing fatigue," read the statement on Monday, May 18. "In consultation with her doctor and as a precautionary measure, she will be taking some time off as she continues to receive treatment."
The statement continued, "We look forward to welcoming Wendy back soon and continuing the [email protected] shows. More updates on a return date will follow."
Prior to this, the daytime TV host sparked concern for her health as she looked exhausted in a recent episode. The fact that Wendy's battling cocaine addiction didn't help either as it only further put fans on high alert.
"Are you good? I'm worried about you. Are you spiraling? Please get some help now," a worried fan said. "The energy is LOW today," another fan noted.
This marks the second time for Wendy to have a hiatus from the show due to Graves' disease. Back in 2018, she told her audience that she would be taking a 3-week hiatus to focus on her health after being diagnosed with Graves' disease in addition to her hyperthyroidism.
"My doctor has prescribed are you ready? As of today, three weeks of vacation," Wendy announced at the time. "What? Who are you? I was pissed." She later explained the disease was described as an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. "Graves' disease squeezes behind the eyeballs," she said, adding that it made her eyeballs twitch.
