As Wendy Williams has become her story rather than those she rags on, she continues to remain the focus of speculation over her health and “The Breakfast Club” co-host Charlamange Tha God is among those wondering about it.
Williams recently returned from a three-week hiatus following her Graves disease diagnosis and tearfully thanked “The Wendy Williams Show” staff on-air for their support. Her most recent health scare followed Williams, who also has a vitamin D deficiency, fainting on-air in October.
“Well, that’s good, Wendy,” Charlamagne says on-air Tuesday, March 20. “Don’t let your staff or yourself down. Glad you got a handle on your health and please let the record show everybody is watching you closely now. So if you slip up again, people are gon know it’s not your health. OK?”
“What, you don’t think she has Graves disease?” co-host Angela Yee asks.
“Just saying people are watching her closely now,” Charlamagne, who got his start on “The Wendy Williams Experience” radio show, responds. “So if she slips up again, people will know it’s not her health.”
After Yee added that Williams has nine doctors monitoring her and that the 5’10 host does not have Alzheimer’s, Charlamagne adds, “I’m just saying hypothetically, it could be drugs.”
Yet at least one (former) fan wasn’t here for the judgment. And Charlamange quickly hit back.
I don’t care what you think but if it turns out I’m right please tweet me tell me you apologize ok? Have a Blessed Day.

And the talk isn’t out of left field. Williams has been open about her issues with drugs in the past.
“I was a functioning addict,” she told InTouch Weekly of the 10-year cocaine addiction she had in her 20s. “I’d work from 3 in the afternoon until 7 at night, get off and party until 7 in the morning — then sleep until 2, go to the radio station and do it all over again. People around me knew, but nobody ever said anything to me. Nobody had the guts, which is shocking to me.”
Plus, Chararlamange isn’t the only one who has speculated about Williams’ drug use.
Wendy off them drugs? Hope she stop fainting now

My mom, in her 65 years, called me the other night and said, "I think Wendy (Williams) is back on drugs." I know it's not funny but I laughed.
