A day after her crew announced that her daytime talk show would be delayed because she tested positive for COVID-19, talk it is being reported that Wendy Williams has been hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation.
Earlier this week, the chat queen skipped her promotional duties because of “ongoing health issues.”
“While continuing her health evaluations, Wendy has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19,” the show’s statement reads. “To allow Wendy time to quarantine and fully recover and to ensure that our production fully abides by SAG/AFTRA and DGA Covid protocols, we expect to begin the 13th season of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, October 4th. In the meantime, repeats will be scheduled.”
“I feel a hundred percent better than I was a few months ago. I had a storm going in my body is the best way I can explain it,” said Williams to People. “It came from me neglecting my six month endocrinology appointment. I have Graves’ disease and hyperthyroid. If you have one you don’t necessarily have to have the other, but I have both, and I was diagnosed with both 19 years ago,” she added.
We wish Wendy Williams the best of health and a swift recovery.
