Wendy Williams Steps Away From Her Talk Show For Health Reasons

Production of The Wendy Williams Show has been suspended for now, with reruns taking it’s place.

A show spokesperson spoke to Variety and said, “Recently, Wendy has been dealing with symptoms from her Graves’ disease which is causing fatigue. In consultation with her doctor and as a precautionary measure, she will be taking some time off as she continues to receive treatment.”

The spokesperson added, “We look forward to welcoming Wendy back soon and continuing the ‘Wendy@Home’ show. “
