The talk show host said that she’s pushing her return back a week due to a fractured shoulder. “After fracturing her shoulder, Wendy is on the mend and wants to return pain-free and be 200%, delivering the best show that millions of viewers tune-in to watch,” the show wrote on its Instagram page.

Ahead of her pre-scheduled holiday break, she had to apologize to her fans for slurring on-air amid taking painkillers for her treatment.


“I’ve never broken a bone or experienced a fracture in my life. In the key place where the fracture is, and trying to scurry around and do too much, I am now paying the price. I’ve never taken a pain medication in my life (except when I got snatched over 20 years ago) until this week,” she said on her show. “I did that to power through and try to deliver a great show for you, against the better judgement [sic] 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%.”

The Wendy Williams Show is set to return on January 14th.
