Today, February 21, Wendy Williams revealed on her show that she is taking three weeks off. She has been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and Graves’ disease.
She told her worried viewers that ‘My doctor has prescribed — are you ready? — three weeks of vacation.’
Wendy also talked about the symptoms that include sleeping issues and irritability among others.
She is not pleased at all with the fact that she has to take a three-week break from the show and she added that she is a working-class woman. She asked who will pay her bills from now on.
Her break begins tomorrow, February 22. If you don’t know what Graves’ disease is we’ll tell you.
It’s an autoimmune health issue and this is practically one of the most common problems related to the thyroid.
It leads to an overactive thyroid and the common symptoms include bulging eyes, anxiety, chest pain, fatigue, elevated blood pressure, weight loss without apparent reasons, sweating and more.
This sad announcement comes just after one week after she took a few days off from her show following some flu-like symptoms.
‘I had to be talked out of going to work today and taking off a few days to get myself together,’ Wendy explained in a video shot in her home.
In another post, Wendy wrote, ‘I guess when you don’t take a sick day EVER in over 25 years the ground is supposed to shake! LOL.’
Her usual targets such as the Kardashian clan can breathe relieved for a few weeks because she won’t be picking on anyone during this time. We hope that she gets better soon!
