Wendy Williams Resurfaces Wearing Mask Amid Battle with Graves' Disease Symptoms

Wendy Williams stepped out to run some errands in New York City before it turned dark, and she made sure to remind people that black lives have always mattered. 

In the middle of May, Wendy Williams went on hiatus from her home-based internet show after her Graves' Disease symptoms worsened. Now, she stepped out for the first time and it was so sudden, that she noted that there were no paparazzi waiting for her to appear. 

"I didn't see paparazzi but ok. I needed my stuff before NYC dark. Black lives have ALWAYS mattered. #blacklivesmatter #NYPD #Peace"

STEPPING OUT FOR ERRANDS

Wendy dressed casually as she ran errands, wearing a sweatsuit, and hoodie. She also made sure to stay protected by wearing an N95 medical mask. In her arms, she clutched a copy of a newspaper, which had a scene from a protest on the front page. 

Before she went on hiatus, Williams was hosting her namesake show from home. She would interview various celebrities through video chat, and continue to provide her viewers with entertainment. 

HER WORK-FROM-HOME HIATUS

However, she had to put a stop to this as she was hospitalized for symptoms of Graves Disease, an illness that she's been suffering from for years. The disease causes great fatigue, and hers allegedly became so severe that she needed hospitalization as she refused to eat. 

With the COVID-19 pandemic still happening and with the protests happening in America nationwide, Williams would still have to continue doing her show from home in case she decides to resume it. 

HER GRAVES DISEASE BATTLE

Graves Disease is an autoimmune disorder, which affects the thyroid. An over-active thyroid causes irregular heartbeats, excessive weight loss, and insomnia. If left untreated, it could turn fatal. 

In Wendy's case, Graves Disease makes it difficult for her to eat. In the past, there were also instances where it made it difficult for her to stand when she would still film her live show from the studio.

Now that she's feeling a lot better, she's made her first appearance since announcing her break. With the COVID-19 pandemic still happening and with the protests happening in America nationwide, Williams would still have to continue doing her show from home in case she decides to resume it.
