What has Wendy Williams said about her ongoing health issues?

WENDY Williams was supposed to kick-off her talk show on October 18 after several postponements, but health problems will keep the host sidelined but not the show.

Actress Leah Remini is currently filling in for Williams while she continues recovering from her ongoing health problems.

What has Williams been battling?

Williams has been battling a slew of health problems for nearly two decades. Most recently, Williams had tested positive for COVID-19. Then, her team said she is under daily medical supervision.

Williams has talked about how she suffers from Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism. She explained her eyes bulge because of her Graves diagnosis.

She's also been candid about her Lymphedema. In 2020, Wendy admitted on Instagram, “Stop asking me about the cankles, I have Lymphedema." She has spoken out how the disease has made it difficult for her to walk even two city blocks.

Despite Williams being fully vaccinated, her recent bout with COVID-19 forced her talk show season premiere to be delayed. It also came days before she was rushed to the hospital for "psychiatric services."

Williams has also struggled with sobriety after her separation from ex-husband, Kevin Hunter.

How long do Williams' health problems date back?

Williams' Graves disease and hyperthyroid diagnosis came about 19 years ago. She said her health problems in recent years linked to those diseases stemmed from her neglecting an endocrinology appointment.

In 2017, fans were concerned after she fainted during a live taping of a Halloween show. Wendy said she felt overheated and suffered from low electrolytes.

In 2018, Wendy admitted to having battled a cocaine addiction which she said stemmed from her radio days.

In early 2019, the talk show host checked into rehab, followed by a sober house, following the messy split from Hunter, whose alleged mistress was reported to be pregnant with his child. The woman gave birth that March.

When is the Wendy Williams show returning?

Radar reports Remini will fill in for Williams during the week of October 28.

While Remini will take over the chair Tuesday through Friday, Monday's show will feature the Hot Talk panelists – Bevy Smith, Michael Yo, Devyn Simone, and Elizabeth Wagmeister.

The show announced on October 12 that it will begin "airing originals on Monday, October 18 with an exciting lineup of guest hosts and panels to be announced shortly."
