Once again, it is the Friday before Wendy Williams is supposed to make her triumphant return, and she is not returning. It’s been a month since Wendy attempted to host the show high on pain pills, and a week since the last time she extended her time off and once again she is taking more time off. This time, there is no return date set.
Wendy has been dealing with a cheating husband who has apparently had a mistress for the entire ten years she has had the TV show. Recently, the streets have been saying that her husband, Kevin has had a child with the mistress. We have been watching Wendy unravel for the past few years and she finally reached her breaking point. Today the official site put out two statements.
A Note from The Hunter Family
As Wendy Williams Hunter previously shared, she fractured her shoulder and has been on the mend. Over the past few days, Wendy has experienced complications regarding her Graves’ Disease that will require treatment. Wendy will be under the strict supervision of her physicians, and as part of her care, there will be significant time spent in the hospital. Despite her strong desire to return, she is taking a necessary, extended break from her show to focus on her personal and physical well-being.
Wendy thanks everyone in advance for their well-wishes and for respecting her and The Hunter Family’s privacy during this time.
What family? Her husband? Her son? Who is making these statements? who is taking care of her? It seems clear to me that the significant time in the hospital will be rehab.
Then the production company put out their own statement.
Statement from Debmar-Mercury
For over ten years, Wendy has been a vital part of the Debmar-Mercury family. We wholeheartedly support Wendy in this decision to take the time she needs and we will welcome her back with open arms the moment she is ready.
The Wendy Williams Show will air repeat episodes the week of January 21st and will produce original episodes with a variety of hosts starting the week of January 28th.
On today’s show the guest hosts said that we would see Wendy on Monday. It seemed to be a prerecorded show because Carson mentioned what he had for lunch that day. So once again it seems like this decision went down to the wire. It seems like the Friday before she is supposed to return comes and Wendy freaks out. She has panic attacks and can’t do it. I don’t think it has anything to do with Graves disease. I think they finally have gotten her to go to rehab. That’s a step in the right direction. They showed a prerecorded interview Wendy did from last month and she bungled every sense and could not read the teleprompter.
Production Remains Shutdown
Now production has shut down for another week while they struggle to pull together more “Hot Talkers” to try to salvage the show and keep her staff employed. I imagine that her staff is jumping ship. I’d like to see her side kick guy sitting at the table. He’s the one that has done all the research.
Just like I said the last time. I don’t think we will be seeing Wendy Williams again. She had a good run. I hope she gets the help she needs and gets away from that monster husband of hers.
When she completes rehab she does have another offer. Maury Povich recently posted on Facebook, “”Wendy… sounds like you need a DNA and Lie Detector Test! Let me help you find the truth!”
Get well soon, Wendy!
