After much speculation surrounding Wendy Williams and the current state of her personal life, the star has finally confirmed what most people suspected — that she has been going through a challenging period.
She claimed that she had had a long last week, and she confirmed her planned absence from her show over the next week.
A spokesperson for the program shared: “The Wendy Williams Show is taking a previously scheduled spring break hiatus and airing repeat episodes during the week of April 1st. The show will return with original episodes on April 8th.”
An insider revealed: “This has nothing to do with recent events. The staff is excited to have Wendy back, and they understand what’s been going on with her, but it’s business as usual.”
Williams has been dealing with many problems on a professional and personal level, according to reports.
After the star decided to deal with her addiction problems through rehab, news came out that Sharina Hudson, the alleged mistress of her husband, Kevin Hunter, had given birth to a baby.
This was followed by reports that Williams was in a terrible state of mind after hearing the announcement. Many feared that she might relapse into her bad habits.
Some have also pointed out that the problems Williams is dealing with date back a lot longer than just one week.
She has suffered various issues in her life over the last few months, and those seem to be reflecting pretty poorly on her current mindset.
A source previously revealed: “Wendy is not in a good way; everyone is so concerned for her. The sad thing is that she’s been working so hard to stay sober and she’s been so honest in her struggles with all her fans, and this just tipped her over the edge. But the fact she still came to the set just shows how strong she’s trying to be.”
However, she also seems determined to get back on her feet. Williams appears to have a plan about her path to recovery and has been following it to the best of her abilities, despite having to deal with even more issues after the problematic recent news broke out.
Many have expressed their support for Williams and have wished her a fast recovery. The positive words have come from many sides, not just from her fans.
