Wendy Williams’ absence from The Wendy Williams show has been officially due to medical reasons.
However, there are many theories about her absence, which includes her relationship with husband Kevin Hunter. It’s been almost two months since the 54-year-old last appeared on the popular gossip talk show that bears her name.
When is Williams coming back to her show?
Williams last appeared on the series in December when seemingly odd behavior, such as difficulty speaking and appearing uncomfortable, worried fans.
In response, Wendy took to Instagram to explain that her poor performance was due to a “hairline fracture on my upper arm” and the pain medication she was prescribed.
Wendy Williams further delayed her return to the series after revealing in January that she will continue her “extended break” due to medical complications from Graves’ disease.
Recent reports claim that Wendy is no longer involved with the planning of the series as temporary host Nick Cannon is reportedly popular among the series staff, however that is just a rumor.
