Wendy Williams Taking 3 Weeks Off After Shocking Health Diagnosis

This news is devastating. How am I supposed to get my daily dose of shade from Queen Wendy Williams?

After taking three days off last week for "flu-like symptoms," the talk host has announced that she has been diagnosed with Graves diseases and won't be returning as a daytime fixture for the next three weeks. Sad face. Even Wendy is pissed about the time off but told her audience that it was under doctor's orders.

In true working class Wendy fashion, she joked that she'll be back in two weeks saying:

"I’m not an heiress — who is going to pay my bills? Are you serious? I’m just saying, I come from working class.”

Apparently Wendy has been having several symptoms including difficulty sleeping, rapid heart beats and intolerance to heat. She also claimed that she feels like there's birds "swimming around [her] head" like she's high, even though she's not high.

Graves disease is an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid, which shouldn't be surprising given the fact that Wendy has preexisting thyroid issues, hence her constant wigs due to thinning hair being a symptom.

This will be 3 very long weeks, but we can get through it together! Oh and let's hope Wendy feels better after her time away in Jersey.

Get ready for the reruns!

You can watch Wendy's full statement in the video above!
