Last month Feb. 21, Wendy Williams announced that she will be taking a “much-needed” vacation due to her thyroid issues & Graves disease. Today she released her return date and tapped Jerry O’Connell as the temporary replacement for her self-titled show. “Hey @MrJerryOC thanks for being my guest host while I’m out getting some much-needed rest. See you all Monday, March 19th! XOX, Wendy,” she tweeted.
Wendy said the actor has been, “such a good friend to me and to the show. We’re happy to welcome him as a guest host while I’m out getting much-needed rest. Can’t wait to get back in my purple chair.”
Back when she announced her hiatus from her show she said, “My doctor has prescribed, are you ready? As of today, three weeks of vacation. “What? Who are you? I was pissed.” Williams continued, “I feel awful. I had to be talked out of going to work today and taking off a few days to get myself together.”
Many of her fans continue to wish her well.
miss you Wendy hope you're resting up girl
