Wendy Williams has been MIA from her talk show since it went on a holiday-season hiatus in December. And it looks like she won’t be returning anytime soon.
Her Instagram account announced a bunch of new guest hosts will be filling in for her in the upcoming weeks.
News of the talk show host’s extended hiatus comes after news outlets report Williams was hospitalized to treat symptoms of Graves’ disease, though she was also spotted at a CVS in Florida this week.
A source told Us Weekly:
“She’s fighting to get back to a clean bill of health […] The struggle of being the main centerpiece of the show, day in and out, while fighting Graves’ disease has been a real battle.”
