Wendy Williams returns to stage in promo for show's October 4 season premiere just two weeks after hospitalization

WENDY Williams has returned to the stage in a new promo for the show's October 4 season premiere.

The teaser comes just two weeks after the TV star was rushed to the hospital for "psychiatric issues."

The promo, which was shared on Instagram, starts off with a Wendy voiceover: "The wait is over. It's Wendy! We're back effect. All new hot topics. I just have one question: How you doin'?"

Wendy then appears onscreen wearing a tight purple dress, as the voiceover continued: "Season 13, the fun continues!"

The post was captioned: "Season 13 starts MONDAY. You don’t wanna miss it!"


People were loving the teaser, as they took to the comments section to respond, as one person wrote: "Can't wait. I need my Wendy with my coffee in the morning!"

Another wrote: "The Queen is returning to her throne! Yas girl!"

Even notable celebrity blogger Perez Hilton chimed in: "Wishing good health for Wendy!"

However, one fan wrote: "Make sure Wendy is okay first. The show can wait!"


The cause for concern is due to Wendy's recent health issues, as The Sun exclusively revealed the star was taken to the hospital after a 911 call was made to her New York City apartment building.

At the time a NYPD spokesperson said: “There was a call for a 57-year-old non-violent female who needed psychiatric services at that address on Wednesday morning.

"They were transported to the hospital.”

At the time, a call to a rep for Wendy was not returned.


However, the Wendy Williams Show's official Instagram would also announce that the 57-year-old was postponing her season premiere, after canceling several appearances recently.

The post read: “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."


While it looks like Wendy is ready to tackle the stage once more, her pal Jason Lee, exclusively told The Sun: "I haven't talked to her personally [since she was hospitalized], but I've reached out to her manager and he told me that she's getting better.

"I think she will bounce back because I know how much she loves the show and her audience and we need her.

"She's a fighter. I mean, she's fought through a marriage that was challenging. She fought through and came out on top…"

Aside from dealing with her health issues, Wendy also finalized her divorce from Kevin Hunter in 2019 after 22 years of marriage amid claims he cheated on her.

The exes share one son, 21-year-old Kevin Hunter Jr.
