Wendy Williams To Take 3 Week-Hiatus From Her Show Due To Graves' Disease Diagnosis

Wendy Williams To Take 3 Week-Hiatus From Her Show Due To Graves’ Disease Diagnosis

#WendyWilliams has had her share of health scares over the past 4 months and today she revealed that she would be canceling shows for the next couple of weeks.

The talkshow host explained that she has Graves’ Disease which is an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. Some symptoms include irritability, anxiety, weight loss, difficulty swallowing, moist hands and feeling “like birds are swimming around my head,” Wendy described.

She’s always been open about her overactive thyroid condition, but this time around, her doctor ordered her to take three weeks off of work! “My doctor has prescribed, are you ready? Three weeks of vacation,” she told her audience today. “I was pissed. Encore performances, really?”

Wendy hardly takes time off so she said that she won’t be taking off the entire three weeks, rather just two weeks.

A rep for Wendy told Us Weekly, “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.”

Get well soon, Auntie Wendy!
