Talk show host Wendy Williams has finally returned after a three week hiatus from her set, but has still been struggling during the first few days of taping for 'The Wendy Williams Show'. 


The 53-year-old host suffers from the Graves Disease, which has been debilitating her. 

According to an insider that is close to Williams, 

"Wendy is not doing so well health wise and everyone around her is begging her to stop the show for now and take a longer break to really get herself back to tip top shape. But she doesnt want to listen to anyone. She started back from her hiatus and is not really in the best condition."


Struggling to continue 'The Wendy Williams Show', she pushes herself to go to work despite feeling under the weather. Williams is reportedly not eating as healthy as she should be, and she falls asleep at work any time she gets the chance. According to those working on set, it is not so pleasant to be around her these days. 

"She is different and it is sad. Her family wants her to take an extended hiatus as does everyone else who really cares about her."

Wendy spoke about her health when her show continued, explaining what had happened to her viewers. 

"I do the show but there are hundreds of people who are the show and they don't - they don't really get the credit that they deserve. So thank you to everyone! Thank you. Thank you. And I have to really credit my family, you know, my son Kevin, and also my husband Kevin, the love of my life. I could not have done this without you."


During an interview with People Magazine, Wendy claims that she feels 100% better than she did a few months back. 

"I had a storm going in my body is the best way I can explain it. It came from me neglecting my six-month endocrinology. I have Graves disease and hyperthyroid. If you have one, you don't necessarily have the other, but I have both and I was diagnosed 19 years ago."
