Controversial talk show host Wendy Williams announced that she has Graves’ disease.
“The Wendy Williams Show” host made the announcement during Wednesday’s show, saying the show will go on break for three weeks starting on Thursday in order for her to focus on her health.
“My doctor has prescribed … are you ready? As of today, three weeks of vacation,” she told the audience. “What? Who are you? I was pissed.”
Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder that causes overstimulation of the thyroid, which can lead to puffy eyes, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia and elevated blood pressure, according to endocrineweb.com.
Last week Williams canceled several shows due to flu-like symptoms, which she shared on social media. Fans have been concerned with her various health battles since the October 31 episode of her show where she fainted live on air.
