The talk show host returns to television after a three-week hiatus.
“Wendy first” is the new motto for Wendy Williams. As the 53-year-old makes her return to her daytime talk show Monday (March 19) after taking a three-week hiatus, Williams appeared on Good Morning America, to give fans an update on her health -- and address that women her age seem to neglect their own health.
“We take care of everybody but ourselves, and it’s really unfortunate,” Williams said in the interview. “No matter what the woman’s status is, it seems like we’re all in the same boat.”
The television personality talked about her diagnosis with Graves’ disease, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. On top of that, Williams also has hyperthyroidism, a condition caused by an overactive thyroid. She revealed that she neglected her endocrinologist appointment due to the nervousness she feels towards doctor’s appointments.
