Wendy Williams has returned to hosting ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ after a two-month hiatus.
After a warm round of applause from the audience, Wendy addressed the reason(s) behind her lengthy absence…sort of.
“What had happened was we were supposed to only be off for two weeks for Christmas vacation and towards the end of the weeks, I started to feel thyroid-ish. They’re still adjusting my meds. If you don’t know about thyroid disease, it’s a lifetime thing and they are always adjusting and always doing stuff and it can really screw you over. They are adjusting my thyroid meds, and then the eyeballs attached to the thyroid, which is my Graves’ disease,” she said.
Wendy then brought up her vertigo and ‘a million other things’ before thanking her ‘many’ doctors.
“I always have equilibrium thing with my vertigo and a million other things. And I’m the kind of patient—if I cough, I’m thinking I’m dying. I’ve gotten to that point. I love—I can’t even tell you how many doctors I have, but I want to shout out to each and every one of you. Thank you so much. They push me in there, I get the MRIs and then I get the CAT scans and then they get me running on the treadmill and they’re doing my blood pressure at the same time as my phone is calling from people on the show.”
Despite apologizing for being high on pain meds due to a shoulder injury in the days leading up to her hiatus, Wendy wants everyone to know that she’s been in the gym for two hours a day, seven days a week.
“Oh, believe me you, I’m going to the gym seven days a week for two hours a day … I’m sorry it took me 40 or 50 days. I know it’s been a long time. I’m sorry! I have to say, it’s not going to happen anymore and I feel good!”
Towards the end, Wendy touched on the reports her marriage is in trouble.
“I want to shout out to my husband. I’m still wearing my ring,” she pointed out. “Believe me you, when you’ve been with somebody for 28 years…married for 25 years…we know each other. He’s my best friend, he’s my lover, he’s all this and he’s all that. I know what you’ve been seeing and I know what the streets have been talking about.”
She then pulled up a throwback photo of them together “before any plastic surgery.”
“Let me show you who I fell in love with and who he fell in love with,” she continued. “It’s still me in the head and I am still very much in love with my husband.”
“Anybody who’s been married for 5 minutes or 500 years, you know marriages have ebbs and flows. Marriages are not easy. Don’t ask me about mine until you see this [ring] gone and it ain’t going anywhere—not in this lifetime.”
