That might have to do with why she’s calling in sick today, as a rep from her show said she’s staying home the rest of the week due to a bad case of the flu.

 “Wendy is still experiencing flu-like symptoms and so she can rest up and get better, we have decided to cancel tapings the rest of the week,” a spokesperson for the show told Page Six.

Wendy, who has hosted her Emmy-award winning daytime talk show for nearly a decade now, prides herself on never missing an episode, but recent health issues may play into why she’s decided to take the week off.

Back during her Halloween taping in 2017, Wendy actually passed out on live television while introducing a fashion-related segment.  Her assistants and producers came to rush to her aid, and she was back on her feet by the time the commercial break came back.  Perhaps some time off can do some good for the talk show legend so these sorts of scary incidents don’t happen anymore.
