Wendy Williams is reportedly on the verge of returning to her show after an extended hiatus. When she does get back in the swing of things, Williams is allegedly going to avoid talking about her health and marriage drama at all costs.
Inside sources believe this is why Williams has already booked a host of celebrity guests for her return. This includes the likes of Jason Biggs, Nick Cannon, Sherri Shepherd, Keke Palmer, Jerry O’Connell and Michael Rapaport, who are scheduled to be on The Wendy Williams Show over a two-week period in early February.

According to Radar Online, Williams is hoping to return to work in a few weeks. It has been close to a month since Williams left the show after suffering a mysterious medical issue. Although there has been a lot of speculation surrounding her health, inside sources claim she will not say anything about her illness.
“Staff are planning a big ‘welcome back’ show where Wendy will address her health problems, but she isn’t going to be saying anything else,” an insider stated.
Williams has delayed her return three times over the past month, which has only sparked more rumors about her ongoing health problems. After taking a short break because of a fractured shoulder, the talk show host extended her time-off because of complications related to Graves’ disease.
Despite the health concerns, Williams made a rare public appearance this week in Florida. The TV host was seen exiting a CVS on Tuesday and was accompanied by a friend. She has not commented on the rumors surrounding her health.

Williams’ family recently issued a statement regarding Williams’ health crisis. Her family explained how she was hospitalized due to complications related to Graves’ disease and would remain under supervised care until she fully recovers.
The family did not say anything about Williams’ husband, Kevin Hunter, who allegedly cheated on her with a close friend. The affair allegedly took place for years, though Wendy Williams denied the rumors on her show prior to her break.
