After a two-month-absence, Wendy Williams returned to her show with a host of updates about her health and her family. She also revealed her explosive views on the Jussie Smollett case and the controversy surrounding the film "Leaving Neverland."


Wendy Williams is back on her show and so are her views on today’s hot topics, her health leading the list.


The talk show host who took a two-month hiatus due to medical reasons bounced back with a range of updates about herself. Williams first revealed she was “doing better now” before launching into an account of what she went through during her absence.

"We were only supposed to be off for two weeks for Christmas vacation," she began. “Towards the end of the two weeks, I start to feel thyroid-ish. Well, they're still adjusting my meds and, if you don't know about thyroid disease, it's a lifetime thing and they're always adjusting and always doing stuff and it can really screw you over."

"I'm 54 and, not for nothing, even though you feel 25, honey, you know, you're still your age on the inside.”


She continued by enumerating the other health conditions she suffered from including her recurring Graves disease and a vertigo problem.

“I can't even tell you how many doctors I have but I want to shout out to each and every one of you — thank you so much."



Williams also told fans about her struggle in juggling her health and work while she was away.

"[I was] running on the treadmill and doing my blood pressure at the same time people were calling from the show and asking me stuff. I'm 54 and, not for nothing, even though you feel 25, honey, you know, you're still your age on the inside.”

However, she assured them that with the help of her “plethora of doctors,” she’s now “doing swell!”



Williams later seemed to shut down rumors of her husband, Kevin Hunter's alleged cheating when she revealed her time off was also an opportunity for her to bond with her family as well as herself.

"We're spending time as a family and I just wanted to take some time for myself. You know I am my own best friend. So, I'm at home and taking my thyroid meds and meditating. I'm going to the gym seven days a week for two hours a day. I don't know how this outfit is reading on TV but mother has not gained a pound."

She likewise used the moment to encourage her viewers to take care of their health as a lesson learned from her experience. She did this while criticizing the country’s inefficient health care system.


"When I first heard this story, I was like, 'Guilty.' I wasn't one of those wafflers. And then as the story started to build, I kept saying to myself, 'Why?'"


With her health update out of the way, Williams resumed hosting duties by diving into today’s controversial topics. She began by talking about Jussie Smollett’s “story that won’t stop” and why she thinks he’s guilty.

"When I first heard this story, I was like, 'Guilty.' I wasn't one of those wafflers. And then as the story started to build, I kept saying to myself, 'Why?' … What's shocking to me is that I believe he was intensely insecure about his role on Empire. I do believe he was probably asking for more money."


Williams’ bottom line clung to the hope that justice would be served.

"Do I think he's guilty, do I think he's innocent? Here's what I think — I want justice to be served. I mean, they got the texts from the African boys with the nice bodies.”

She’s referring to the two Nigerian men who were first accused of assaulting Smollett but revealed in their testimony after their arrest that the attack was, in fact, staged by the actor himself.

“The police commissioner of Chicago was up in arms, the FBI is all over this case. I just want justice to be served and Jussie goes to court March 13. So, we're back and I'm here to report to you,” Williams concluded.



Another Hot Topic the feisty host featured was the documentary “Leaving Neverland” which anchors on the story of two men who admitted to being molested by Michael Jackson. Her take on the matter - “I do believe that this is a money grab for the families.”


While Williams was away, several hosts pitched in for her including Nick Cannon, Jerry O’Connell, Bevy Smith, and Sherry Shepherd. At one point, there were rumors that Cannon was going to take over the show for good but the comedian shut it down and assured fans of Williams’ return.

Now that the outspoken host is back, fans can expect more of her vibrant personality in the show.
