What is wrong with Wendy Williams?
After producers have been forced to push back the season 14 premiere of The Wendy Williams Show multiple times due to the host’s ailing health, it now appears that The Wendy Williams Show will go ahead and debut. The new season will feature a slew of guest hosts, premiering on October 18th until Wendy Williams herself is able to get healthy and come back to the main chair.
“Wendy continues to be under medical supervision and meets with her medical team on a daily basis. She is making progress but is experiencing serious complications as a direct result of Graves’ disease and her thyroid condition. It has been determined that more time is needed before she is able to return to her live hosting duties,” read the show’s statement.
Of course, many already know that Wendy Williams, who is fully vaccinated, was diagnosed with a breakthrough case of COVID-19 back in mid-September, forcing producers of The Wendy Williams Show to push back the premier initially. Now, whether COVID-19 has had negative conjunction with her thyroid condition & Graves disease or not, we certainly hope that Wendy Williams gets healthy asap.
Could the Wendy Williams Show get canceled?
We’re glad to learn that Wendy Williams is recovering from COVID, having already been vaccinated and surprisingly joining a small list of celebrities with breakthrough cases, such as Hilary Duff & Melissa Joan Hart. However, just what is wrong with Wendy Williams and will she ever come back? After all, many other talk shows are finally returning to their studios with live audiences.
We were surprised to learn that The Wendy Williams Show has actually already been extended through 2022, possibly helping these networks fill in the lost void once The Ellen Degeneres Show goes off the air, as there’s already plenty of ensemble talk shows, such as The Talk, The View, and The Real. However, with Ellen DeGeneres moving on from her daytime talk show, perhaps we need Wendy Williams now more than ever.
So what’s wrong with Wendy Williams? Well, the host did take an extended break from her show in 2019 to focus on her health after a shoulder injury as well as complications from Graves’ disease. The host later shared that she was diagnosed with an immune disorder, which affects the thyroid, in 2018.
Williams also suffers from hyperthyroidism. Poor girl, instead of asking “what’s wrong with Wendy Williams” we should be asking “what’s right?” You know, besides her wallet size & glamorous lifestyle. Amidst this breakthrough case, despite her other health issues, our best suggestion is to get vaccinated and protect yourself and your loved ones the best you can. Perhaps if Williams hadn’t been vaxxed things could’ve been worse.
As of today, there are three vaccines that are being used to fight the spread of COVID-19 and end the current global pandemic. The first vaccine, developed by Pfizer-BioNTech, was first administered in the U.S. at the end of 2020. The second vaccine to fight COVID-19 was developed by Moderna, which was also first given the green light for emergency use at the tail-end of 2020.
Both of these coronavirus vaccines are estimated to combat the coronavirus with an impressive effectiveness rate of over 93%. However, since the evolving Delta variant made its way to the states, the vaccine efficacy has dropped by a small amount but is still reportedly effective. A third coronavirus vaccine, this time developed by Johnson & Johnson, was given the OK in early 2021, and only requires a single shot.
While the latest Delta variant is currently expected to drop your protection rate by a small percentage, it’s still the best way to protect yourself from getting sick or, worst-case scenario, hospitalized.
