We often make fun of Wendy Williams.
And for mostly a very good reason:
She really does suck a whole lot.
This is someone who spends every single talk show saying cruel things about other celebrities.
And not just cruel thing, but REALLY cruel things that have no basis in fact.
Williams just does not come across as a very good person.
All that said, we don’t wish her any kind of physical harm. We aren’t monsters, folks.
This is why we’d like to send Wendy our best wishes in light of the news she shared this morning with her studio audience.
Williams has confirmed a diagnosis of hyperthyroidism and Graves’ disease for herself.
As a result, you won’t be seeing her on the small screen any time in the near future.
“My doctor has prescribed – are you ready? – three weeks of vacation,” she told viewers after detailing her symptoms, which include difficulty sleeping and irritability.
She added: “I was pissed. Encore performances, really?”
Hey, Wendy, one’s health always comes first. Remember that.
Williams explained that Graves’ disease squeezes the muscles behind the eyeballs and said she thinks she experienced this symptom because she was focusing on her work AND on her son’s college applications.
She is such a trooper.
“I’ll be back in two [weeks],” Williams added, saying randomly and annoyingly:
“I’m not an heiress – who is going to pay my bills? Are you serious? I’m just saying, I come from working class.”
Yeah. You’re a millionaire, Wendy. Just shut up already.
In a statement to various entertainment news outlets, the talk show said the following:
Wendy is a true champion and has never missed a day of work. But her health and well-being must be put before all else.
Wendy has been openly dealing with her Graves’ disease for many years in addition to hyperthyroidism. Yesterday, Wendy’s doctor prescribed a necessary three weeks of rest to get her levels and medication in sync.
The show will be in repeats during this unplanned hiatus. A live show was produced today so that Wendy could speak directly to her fans and explain her condition.
Williams concluded her message by again stating that Oprah is fat.
She instead told women (not men, just women) to insure they always have an eye on their health.
“What I want to say to women, more than men, is stop putting everyone first because if we’re not good, they’re not good.”
What a weird thing to say, right?
Williams previously had a health scare in October of last year, when she fainted during her live Halloween episode.
Producers rushed to the stage as the broadcast cut to a commercial.
When Wendy returned a few minutes later, she explained that she was dehydrated and overheated in her Statue of Liberty costume.
