After passing out and later taking a break due to the “flu” Wendy Williams finally decided to tell the truth.
On Wed Feb. 21, Wendy Williams shocked viewers when she revealed her talk show will go on hiatus for 3 weeks. The host has been diagnosed with Graves’ disease and revealed she’s also dealing with thyroid issues.
Williams, 53, announcement comes just one week after she took three days off from her show after suffering from “flu-like symptoms. “I had to be talked out of going to work today and taking off a few days to get myself together,” she explained in a home video on Instagram, while hydrating with fluids. In another post she wrote, “I guess when you don’t take a sick day EVER in over 25 years the ground is supposed to shake! LOL.”
As you may know, Missy Elliott quietly suffered from Graves disease for years.
Graves’ disease — an autoimmune disease — is one of the most common of all thyroid problems, and is the leading cause of overactive thyroid, otherwise known as hyperthyroidism. Common symptoms of Graves’ disease include: anxiety, bulging eyes, chest pain, elevated blood pressure, fatigue, unexplained weight loss, and increased sweating, among many others.
I’m going to pray for Wendy and wish her the best. People hate her, but in all honestly she does the same job as anyone else who gossips. She simply gets paid more and has a bigger platform to do it on. Rather you like her or not, the woman has worked extremely hard to get to where she is in life.
But feel free to post your thoughts in the comments… As I don’t expect everyone to agree with me. Matter of fact, I know they won’t.
