Wendy Williams has issued an apology after fans voiced concern over her health following Thursday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show.
Following the episode, Williams shared on Instagram, “To My Wendy Watchers, I sincerely apologize if you feel that today’s show was less than stellar.”
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.

“I’ve never taken a pain medication in my life (except when I got snatched over 20 years ago) until this week,” Williams added. “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.”
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!
