Wendy Williams Finally Comes Clean About Slurred Speech And Bizarre Behavior

Wendy Williams Finally Comes Clean About Slurred Speech And Bizarre Behavior

For weeks, talk show host Wendy Williams has been acting pretty strange. Not only has she been slurring her speech and tumbling onstage, but she has also called out of work for unknown health reasons. Now, her bizarre behavior has become so noticeable to viewers, that Williams decided to reveal what’s been going on.

After she slurred her words through most of her hot topics segment on Thursday’s show and forced producers to air pre-taped clips, the 54-year-old posted a lengthy Instagram statement apologizing to her fans.

“I sincerely apologize if you feel that today’s show was less than stellar. I’m on your TV screens every day wanting to spread laughter, entertainment, and cheer. As I reported earlier in the week, I have a hairline fracture on my upper arm, which hurts like hell,” Williams explained.

She added that she has never broken anything in her life and has never taken pain medication until this week because she is in extreme pain. According to Radar Online , Williams was suggesting that it was the powerful pain meds that caused the slurred speech and odd behavior.

“I did that to power through and try to deliver a great show for you, against the better judgement of the many people around me who genuinely care for my well-being. I really do ride or die for my craft and give 200%,” wrote Williams.

The host of The Wendy Williams Show also said that her thyroid condition has caused her some trouble.

However, Williams says she has no regrets, and she appreciates everyone’s concern for her health and wellness. She also promised her fans a “better Wendy in 2019,” after she gets some much-needed rest over the holiday break.

Even with her apology and statement, Williams’ show has taken a downward turn in the past couple of years. She collapsed onstage during a 2017 Halloween show, and she often acts so strangely that her close friends are worried.

An insider says that “something bad” is going on with Williams, and they had to cancel the December 17th episode at the last minute and air a rerun instead. The source added that for weeks, Williams has exhibited strange behavior. But, the talk show host continues to deny that anything is wrong, except for a few minor issues.

But the insider says that Williams can “barely stand at times, and has totally checked out.”

The Wendy Williams Show airs weekday mornings in syndication.

    She be up in everyone's business. What she should do is tell the damn truth , her life is a damn hot mess. Nontheless, I wish her a smoother path in 2019 and pray she kicks that little boy/sorry man's cheating butt to the curb. He's toxic as snake venom!!!!!!

    Look I am a nurse ! So I know that her story about having a hairline fracture & painkillers is an outright LIE !!!! She is going through hell in her own life & she needs to look @ her own issues & stop being all up in other people's & profiting of other's calamities...... It is time this woman changes her whole life & turns it around , & cleans it up . What self respecting woman would tolerate her husband's behavior ? He obviously stays with Wendy for the financial aspects of the relationship... but he loves his mistress. The whole three of them are a mess . The mistress needs to know that the same way you get a man ... is the same way you can / will lose him . While Wendy is busy making money off other people in a bad way... her husband's mistress is taking from her through her husband. It is an intricate mess . I suspect she is self medicating.. which is a big No ~ No for someone with a past history of drug abuse. Time will tell ......

    I feel so much for her, I would advise that health should not only be seen on the physical, before the manifestation on the outside the spiritual would have taken place. So with this l would suggest she gets closer in knowing her God Jesus or better still to go to a very good Pastor to conduct a deliverance.

    I hope she will humble herself more. God giveth and can taketh. All her ugly gossip and nasty behavior caught up to her. We all need God. We cannot go the distance without him. Praying she gets the message.

    This is what happens to smart women who make their husbands their managers. Poor Wendy worked so hard only to have it destroyed by her husband, who is clearly not all the way on the Wendy team.

    The truth is that the woman her husband is in a affair with who lives down the street and is now pregnant with his child, is very stressful and the ring she's wearing is just as big as Wendy's. It's not worth it Wendy so what he's your manager.... Think about Kevin Jr. and take care of yourself. Love you areal friend will tell you the truth... Debra

    I'm Sorry & I hope she gets her life together, but all over a Hairline Fracture. I've had so many, my kids had so many when little. My daughter just Hairline Fractured her Vertebrae in her back & returned to work on her feet all day, next day. Even if Wendy has no pain tolerance she would have to eat pain pills likeTac Tacs to be in the shape I seen her in Thursday. I hope things get better for her soon but it's been one thing after another for her since b4 her last "Rest Break" & looks to be getting worse. Good Luck Wendy PS... Pain pills worst thing any recovering addict should be doing!!!

    Her hairline fracture is code for called Kevin Hunter cheating with a masseuse.

    Sometimes people have to recognize, things come back at you. Even though she have the intentions of entertainment, fun etc, as she puts it, enough is enough of talking about people and things in their life. She throwing shade, laughing at situations that are hurtful. What if others cracked jokes about her illnesses, husband antics and other situations. I would really love to share a bit of conversation...

    I've been watching Wendy for a little while now (only bc nothing better to watch) she has always been crude and not a good t.v. personality. I hope she invested her money well bc her tv days will soon be over. I haven't gotten over her asking the young man from Blackish if he was gay then if he was a virgin and his father was in the audience. She sits up on her chair like its a throne while everyone caters to her. She will soon be knocked off that throne.

    It"s about time to pull the plug on this ratchet- behind show! 10 years was a good run for her. She needs to move on while she still has a lil dignity. Things r starting to look a tad bit ruff for her. Too much lying n denial going on! Take ur purple chair n ease on down the road Wendy! Ur shenanigans have grown old n tired.

    Listen i watch her show all the time. I think she is doing great job and if she is having some health problems i think we should be respectful of her privacy and if it bothers u dont watch. I am sick with end stage renal disease due to a rare autoimmune disease and i just want to continue to do normal things that i did prior to becoming sick without everyone constantly asking or commenting on my health and should i be pushing myself to do things like before i was sick. The answer is definitely yes for me because i feel that otherwise im giving into this disease and im a fighter and i refuse to do that. So be respectful of her, if she wants to talk about it she will. Otherwise, leave her alone and realize that people who are sick dont want to talk about their illness most of the time and when they are out and about abd see friends, family, or general public they want to have the same conversations that they were having before u found out they were sick. Try n pu t to treat them any different than anyone else. Because I promise they want to be treated by you the way u did before u knew they were sick! Just my opinion.

    ? Wendy Williams comes clean....lol she wouldn't know what clean is even if she tripped over it herself. She's a liar and not to be believed. The truth is...the reason she's having health issues is called KARMA. Why is she hiding her arm sling and why can't she walk...I know many with shoulder injuries who can still walk. Oh that's right she's been sitting down more on her show without explanation other than her snarky comment. SMH?

      Now Wendy is the hot topic?. Should we laugh at her like she laughs at other people’s short comings? Should we talk about her the same way she talks about Beyoncé and Megan Markle? She’s been belching on TV and said she didn’t care what people said about it. I think she’s back on drugs. She dug her own grave. She bullies her guests. All the warning signs are there.

  • Beth

    She needs rehab. Im not judging as she does but a recovering addict does not take pain pills. Her behavior is like she relapsed. I know many people with hairline fractures and they are back on there feet the next day. Why are you hiding the sling? No one knows.
