Wendy Williams returned to her talk show in a stunning yellow dress that showcased pounds of weight lost during the quarantine. "Food became disgusting to me," the host said at one point.
On Monday, "The Wendy Williams" show returned to television in a socially-distanced taping that saw very few guests and even less of the host herself — several pounds less.
Williams, 56, revealed that she lost a lot of weight amid the pandemic. She shared why — not how — during a segment of the daytime show. The clip is found below.

WILLIAMS' YELLOW OUTFIT
Williams looked stunning as she walked onstage in a long-sleeved yellow dress with a cinched waist. It has been four months since the host, who has Graves' disease, was able to take to the stage.
Admitting that it might be too much information to share, Williams further explained that she got a colonoscopy, and the doctor told her how much weight she lost. She hasn't been this small since high school.

Her skintight dress perfectly showcased Williams' ample bosom and much smaller waist. Her light blonde hair was styled with loose curls, and she accessorized with several bracelets and a necklace saying "W."
WEIGHT LOSS EXPLANATION
"It was just that food became disgusting to me. I was cooking at first, and it was all good. I was shoveling stuff in my mouth. [...] But then it became, 'I'm done with food.' "
PERSONAL LIFE UPDATE
Admitting that it might be too much information to share, Williams further explained that she got a colonoscopy, and the doctor told her how much weight she lost. She is now as small as her high school days.
Williams also divulged information about her personal life, explaining that she was single, and none of her potentials lasted. Williams filed for divorce from estranged husband Kevin Hunter months ago.
NEW LOOK LAST WEEK
Williams' new look follows a post she shared last week giving fans a glimpse of what was to come. At the time, Williams rocked bangs and straight hair as she sat wearing a green dress.
Ahead of an interview on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," Williams long, halter-style gown with pictures of fish on it hugged her curves as she sat in a pink chair.
EAGER TO RETURN TO STUDIO
Williams' return to television has long been anticipated. The talk show host initially took a break from her show due to Graves' disease in March. Amid the pandemic lockdowns, she later filmed from home.
In June, she stopped filming from her house, and a spokesperson talked about a potential return to television. Williams reportedly couldn't wait to get back in front of an audience and film in her studio.
