Wendy Williams Caught on Camera for the First Time Since Postponing Her Show Due to Her Health
The popular talk show host was spotted during a candid public outing, giving her fans and followers a new hope.
Wendy Williams has already postponed her return to “The Wendy Williams Show” up to three times because of health concerns including Graves’ disease and a fractured shoulder.
On January 29, the 54-year-old TV personality gave her fans some hope by making a casual appearance at a CVS along with a friend.

Wendy Williams will be returning with all-new episodes of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, January 14, 2019. After fracturing her shoulder, Wendy is on the mend and wants to return pain-free and be 200%, delivering the best show that millions of viewers tune-in to watch.
Williams was spotted donning a beautiful, bright yellow T-shirt, and carrying a matching yellow purse during her visit to the drug store.
Earlier this month, Williams broke the news that her health might keep her away from the show for an uncertain amount of time.
Her family stated in a press release that Williams was experiencing “complications regarding her Graves’ disease” which would require further treatment.
During this period, she was to be placed under the strict supervision of her physicians. To provide her with proper care, she would have to spend a considerable amount of time in the hospital.
“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,” the family explained in the press statement.
A few weeks prior to that statement, Williams had made a return to the show after recovering from a fractured shoulder.
However, she ended up ‘slurring her words’ during the episode, leading her to apologize to the fans for delivering a “less than stellar show.”
“I sincerely apologize if you feel that today’s show was less than stellar. I’m on your TV screens every day wanting to spread laughter, entertainment, and cheer,” she wrote in an Instagram post, before opening up about the fracture on her upper arm.

To My Wendy Watchers, I sincerely apologize if you feel that today's show was less than stellar. I’m on your TV screens every day wanting to spread laughter, entertainment and cheer. As I reported earlier in the week, I have a hairline fracture on my upper arm, which hurts like hell. I’ve never broken a bone or experienced a fracture in my life. In the key place where the fracture is, and trying to scurry around and do too much, I am now paying the price. I've never taken a pain medication in my life (except when I got snatched over 20 years ago) until this week. I did that to power through and try to deliver a great show for you, against the better judgement of the many people around me who genuinely care for my well-being. I really do ride or die for my craft and give 200%. Not to mention everyone is aware at this point about my thyroid condition (don’t cry for me Argentina). For all my fellow thyroid sufferers, you know what the deal is. And for those that don’t: I encourage you to please read up. Needless to say, whatever today's performance was with the legendary The Lox, who said such nice things, I have no regrets and I appreciate everyone’s genuine concern for my wellness and care. 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. Happy Holidays!
Last year in April, Williams endured another embarrassing moment on the set of her show when her guest, actress Roseanne Barr, came up with a smart response to her question.
Meanwhile, another Instagram post from the show’s official account announced that Fox’s “The Masked Singer” host, Nick Cannon, is all set to take the temporary hosting role on the show in Williams’s absence.
