Wendy Williams delays talk show season premiere after she's diagnosed with Covid amid 'ongoing health issues’

WENDY Williams has been forced to delay the season premiere of her talk show after being diagnosed with Covid.

The 57-year-old previously canceled her “promotional activities” for the new season due to “ongoing health issues” but has now decided to postpone the return of her show, as well.


The Wendy Williams Show’s Instagram revealed the news on Wednesday, writing: “While continuing her health evaluations, Wendy has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19.”

“To allow Wendy time to quarantine and fully recover and to ensure that our production abides by all 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.”

Fans quickly flooded the comments section to send their get-well-soons and well-wishes for the recuperating host.

“I will miss hot topics 🙏🏾 get well @wendyshow,” one fan wrote.

A second said: “Prayers to youAuntie Wendy❤️❤️❤️❤️”

Another commented: “Praying for speedy recovery pray”

Last week, a message shared to the Wendy Show Instagram announced that the 57-year-old was taking a step back amid "some ongoing health issues and further evaluations."

The post continued: "She will not be able to complete her promotional activities next week, but can't wait to be back in her purple chair on Monday, September 20th for the 13th season premiere."

The Wendy Williams Show host has previously spoken about suffering from Graves' disease.

Fans became concerned about Wendy's health in 2017, when she fainted during a live taping of her show on Halloween.

At the time, the host blamed it on being overheated and low electrolytes.

But in February 2018 the TV star announced that she had Graves' disease, and had been living with it for years.

In March, Wendy showed viewers a close-up of her severely swollen ankles while sharing that she suffers from Lymphedema.

The daytime talk show host admitted she can't even walk two blocks because of the disease.

Last year, Wendy clapped back at those trolling her Lymphedema during an after-show on Instagram: “Stop asking me about the cankles, I have Lymphedema.

“Stop asking me why I wear sneakers, I have Lymphedema. Stop asking me why my eyes bulge, I’ve got Graves’ disease. Stop asking me, like, dumb mess! Can we connect on a more cerebral level?”
