Wendy Williams Has Trouble Speaking During Show, Fans Worry That Something Is Seriously Wrong (VIDEO)
Back in February of this year, Wendy Williams, took a three week break from her talk show to focus on her health after she was diagnosed with Graves’ disease.
After taking her break, Wendy seemed energized and has been going at 110% for the past several months, but during Thursday’s episode of her daytime talk show, she worried fans because she was off her game. She seemed distracted, uncomfortable and at times she had trouble speaking.
Fans sent her messages on social media to make sure she was okay after the show, and she responded by admitting she put on a less than stellar performance, but there is a reason for it. She fractured her shoulder a few days ago, and the pain was so bad on Thursday, she had to take pain meds…
“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.
[re: pain meds] 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.”
She went on to say that she has no regrets about doing the show and promises she’ll be focusing on her health during this holiday break…
“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!”
You can hate on her format all you want, but you can’t deny her insane work ethic. That’s why she’s at the top.
