A day later, the 57-year-old daytime TV icon was snapped stepping out of a black SUV sporting a gold robe in photos obtained by DailyMail. She also appeared to be wearing blue hospital socks.

Williams held tightly onto the hand of her manager Bernie Young as he helped her inside. Her 21-year-old son Kevin Jr. was also spotted entering her building behind a man pushing a wheelchair, then later catching an Uber out of there. She shares her son with estranged ex Kevin Hunter.

It is unclear exactly what is wrong with the talk show diva, but Williams has been very open about her struggles with Graves disease — an immune system disorder that results in the overproduction of thyroid hormones.

The disorder causes anxiety, tremors, as well as puffy or bulging eyes. In February 2018, the former radio host revealed she had been suffering from the debilitating disease for years.
