Wendy Williams was rushed to a Manhattan hospital earlier this week after a 911 call was placed requesting “psychiatric services.”
OK! reported the 57-year-old talk show titan voluntarily went to the hospital as she has been suffering from mental health issues for some time.
Employees on her hit daytime TV show are eager to return to work, but Williams' health issues are delaying the new season.
Now a frustrated show staffer is venting that the talk show host is surrounded by “enablers” who allow her to do what she wants and won’t tell her to stop and rest so she can get well and return to the iconic purple couch.
Williams' hospital stay comes as the former radio host is facing a series of health concerns. On Thursday, September 9, she announced she was taking a pause from scheduled job commitments to deal with some “ongoing health issues” and was “undergoing further evaluations.”
Days later, a statement was released revealing the Ask Wendy: Straight-Up Advice for All the Drama In Your Life author had tested positive for coronavirus.
The statement continued: “To allow Wendy time to quarantine and fully recover and to ensure that our production abides by all SAG/AFTRA and DGA Covid protocols, we expect to begin the 13th season of The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, October 4,” adding, “In the meantime, repeats will be scheduled.”
It is unclear exactly what is wrong with the Think Like a Man alum, but the media personality has been very open about her struggles with Graves disease — an immune system disorder that results in the overproduction of thyroid hormones.
