The Wendy Williams Show viewers hoping to see the talk-show host on the small screen are going to have to wait a little longer.
E! News has learned the show will air repeat episodes the week of January 21 and will produce brand-new episodes with a variety of hosts starting the week of January 28.
“As Wendy Williams Hunter previously shared, she fractured her shoulder and has been on the mend. Over the past few days, Wendy has experienced complications regarding her Graves’ Disease that will require treatment,” The Hunter Family said in a statement on Instagram. “Wendy will be under the strict supervision of her physicians, and as part of her care, there will be significant time spent in the hospital.”
The statement continued, “Despite her strong desire to return, she is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being.”
Debmar-Mercury, the media company that produces the show, expressed their full support for Wendy as she recovers.
Back in December, the 54-year-old host looked visibly uncomfortable during her show that airs live from New York City. She would later acknowledge the “less than stellar show” and offered an explanation for her behavior.
Wendy continued, “I promise you a better Wendy in 2019. I will get some much needed rest and healing over these next couple of weeks. (Yes I am definitely juicing over the next couple of weeks). Sorry again. I love you all!”
