Update on the former talk show host

Earlier this month, Wendy Williams left the wellness facility after spending two months there. According to her publicist Shawn Zanotti, she entered the rehab to “manager her overall health issues.” As TV Shows Ace previously reported, Wendy was dealing with her ongoing health issues from Graves’ Disease and her battle with alcohol addiction.

“Wendy is excited about the road ahead and is looking forward to releasing her many projects. She wants to say, ‘thank you to my fans for your love, support, and many prayers, I am back and better than ever,'” Shawn shared with E! Online.

Last month, Wendy Williams’ publicist shared in a statement that she was planning her comeback. However, she was “taking some time to focus on her health and wellness.” In September 2021, Wendy announced that she was dealing with “ongoing medical issues” and took an extended hiatus from The Wendy Williams Show, which was canceled earlier this year.

Several celebrity guest hosts filled in during Season 13 of the show. Sherri Shepard now has her own series, Sherri, run by The Wendy Williams Show production company. The former talk show host struggled to make a comeback. Her interviews and sightings in the past few months concerned fans.
