Wendy Williams Explains Her Train Wreck Interview After Social Media Expresses Concern For Her Health

The talk show host has been acting strangely these days.

Published December 21st

Wendy Williams' recent disposition has sparked concern among her fans and loyal viewers as they collectively noticed that the usually effervescent and eagerly gossipy television personality appeared a bit out of character during a recent show.

In response to their worries, the talk show maven has taken to social media to explain just why she's been out of it, as of late.

Some of Williams' loyal "co-hosts" took to Twitter following the TV personality's recent interview with The Lox that showed her appearing a bit loopy and discombobulated in her interactions and responses.

At certain points in the interview, there were also some prominent and awkward pauses, which viewers had also noticed would happen during other segments throughout the morning program over the past few months.

Take a look at the interview in question, below:

  1. Taking to Twitter, fans voiced their concerns for Williams' health, taking into consideration her health scare on Halloween 2017, when she fainted during the live TV broadcast:

  2. In an effort to put her fans at ease, Williams took to Instagram to explain that, due to a recent injury, she has been taking pain medication, which she hasn't done in 20 years. She claimed that, as a result, they have been affecting her performance on the show.

    "To My Wendy Watchers, I sincerely apologize if you feel that today's show was less than stellar," she wrote. "As I reported earlier in the week, I have a hairline fracture on my upper arm, which hurts like hell... I've never taken a pain medication in my life (except when I got snatched over 20 years ago) until this week. I did that to power through and try to deliver a great show for you, against the better judgment of many people around me who genuinely care of my well-being."

    She went on to explain that she is closely monitoring her health and wished her viewers a happy holidays.

    To My Wendy Watchers, I sincerely apologize if you feel that today's show was less than stellar. I’m on your TV screens every day wanting to spread laughter, entertainment and cheer. As I reported earlier in the week, I have a hairline fracture on my upper arm, which hurts like hell. I’ve never broken a bone or experienced a fracture in my life. In the key place where the fracture is, and trying to scurry around and do too much, I am now paying the price. I've never taken a pain medication in my life (except when I got snatched over 20 years ago) until this week. I did that to power through and try to deliver a great show for you, against the better judgement of the many people around me who genuinely care for my well-being. I really do ride or die for my craft and give 200%. Not to mention everyone is aware at this point about my thyroid condition (don’t cry for me Argentina). For all my fellow thyroid sufferers, you know what the deal is. And for those that don’t: I encourage you to please read up. Needless to say, whatever today's performance was with the legendary The Lox, who said such nice things, I have no regrets and I appreciate everyone’s genuine concern for my wellness and care. I promise you a better Wendy in 2019. I will get some much needed rest and healing over these next couple of weeks. (Yes I am definitely juicing over the next couple of weeks). Sorry again. I love you all. Happy Holidays!
