Sad to say, things aren’t looking up for Wendy Williams. When she announced she was taking a break to take care of her broken shoulder, she said she would return on January 21st. That’s just a couple of days from now, but Wendy’s not going to make it. A “Note From The Hunter Family” was posted on Twitter which explains that Wendy’s going to need more time than she thought, and that she would need to be spend “significant time” in the hospital to treat complications from Graves’ Disease. Wendy’s been off her game for a while, initially blaming her shoulder injury and subsequent pain mediation for her slurring, and her thyroid condition for her frequent need to sit down. Still, friends were worried something else might be going on. And it sounds as if they had every reason to be.
But the show must go on! During Wendy’s “extended break”, after next week’s planned run of reruns (RIP Fred Berry, how fun would it have been if Rerun could have stepped in as host), The Wendy Williams Show will return with new episodes but without Wendy. She’ll be replaced by a “variety of hosts”. Here’s the note which looks like it was banged out pretty quickly. The cursor is still visible at the end of the message!

I hope Maury Povich lets her alone to heal and doesn’t jump out from behind her hospital bed with DNA results for her husband Kevin Hunter’s alleged love child and a lie detector test, which he offered to do in a since deleted Facebook post. I wonder if when Wendy does come back (if Wendy does come back), she will close her show by proudly stating “I’m Wendy Williams-Hunter-Moonves. Good day!”.
