Wendy Williams has been slaying morning television for over ten years now.
From her salacious hot topics to celebrity interviews, the former queen of radio brings the ratchet every morning. However, Wendy’s health has been deteriorating in front of our eyes.
Wendy revealed today on her syndicated talk show that she has Graves disease and hyperthyroidism, and the show will go on a three-week hiatus beginning Thursday so Williams can focus on her health.

Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder that causes overstimulation of the thyroid, which can lead to puffy eyes, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia and elevated blood pressure, according to endocrineweb.com.
Williams health has made headlines in recent months after she fainted on-air during her show’s Halloween episode on October 31. At the time, Williams said she became dehydrated and overheated because of the heavy Halloween costume she was wearing. A week ago she took three days off because she was experiencing flu-like symptoms. Williams returned on Monday, February 19 and told viewers she was feeling much better.
During the three week break, reruns will be airing , as the show will not have a fill in host.
