To My Wendy Watchers, I sincerely apologize if you feel that today's show was less than stellar. I’m on your TV screens every day wanting to spread laughter, entertainment and cheer. As I reported earlier in the week, I have a hairline fracture on my upper arm, which hurts like hell. I’ve never broken a bone or experienced a fracture in my life. In the key place where the fracture is, and trying to scurry around and do too much, I am now paying the price. I've never taken a pain medication in my life (except when I got snatched over 20 years ago) until this week. I did that to power through and try to deliver a great show for you, against the better judgement of the many people around me who genuinely care for my well-being. I really do ride or die for my craft and give 200%. Not to mention everyone is aware at this point about my thyroid condition (don’t cry for me Argentina). For all my fellow thyroid sufferers, you know what the deal is. And for those that don’t: I encourage you to please read up. Needless to say, whatever today's performance was with the legendary The Lox, who said such nice things, I have no regrets and I appreciate everyone’s genuine concern for my wellness and care. I promise you a better Wendy in 2019. I will get some much needed rest and healing over these next couple of weeks. (Yes I am definitely juicing over the next couple of weeks). Sorry again. I love you all. Happy Holidays!

The host explained that a combination of things, including pain medicine for her fractured upper arm and her thyroid condition contributed to issues on Thursday’s show.

Earlier this week, Williams revealed she’d fractured her shoulder in an accident over the weekend, explaining that the pain made it feel like her “shoulder was on fire.”

Williams also shocked viewers last year after collapsing on her set, later calling the moment “really scary.” Months later, Williams revealed that she had been diagnosed with Graves’ disease and took three weeks off of her eponymous talk show to focus on her health.

She continued, “I really do ride or die for my craft and give 200%…I promise you a better Wendy in 2019.”

Williams added that she’s taking the “next couple of weeks” to “get some much needed rest and healing.”

Get well soon!
