Wendy Williams has checked herself into a wellness facility due to her overall health issues.
According to her reps, this decision was made to help her move forward with her comeback. “She is taking some time to focus on her health and wellness as she prepares for a major comeback for the next level in her career with The Wendy Experience Podcast.”
The rep goes on to say, “Ms. Williams is being treated by a team of some of the best doctors in the world. We ask for prayers and well wishes during this time.” We reported that Williams was suffering health-related issues earlier this year which prevented her from returning to her daytime talk show The Wendy Williams Show.
To keep the show going many celebrity guests filled in for her including, Michael Rappaport, Fat Joe, Remy Ma, and Sherri Shepherd who ended up gaining the highest ratings last November. Williams’ show came to an end after being on-air for almost a decade.
Howard Bragman, Wendy’s rep said, “She understands why this decision was made from a business point of view. She has been assured by Debmar-Mercury that should her health get to a point where she can host again and should her desire be that she hosts again that she would be back on TV at that time.”
