Is Wendy Williams OK? TV host looks 'sickly' in blue hospital socks, bathrobe
Just a day after her talk show revealed that she is cancelling all promotional events to deal with "ongoing health issues", Wendy Williams was spotted dressed in a robe and blue socks looking weak. On Friday, September 10, 2021, Williams was seen stepping out of a black SUV wearing a gold and cream robe being led into her Manhattan apartment building.
According to exclusive photos by DailyMail.com, the 57-year-old TV host looked "sickly" in what look to be blue hospital socks. She was led by the hand from her car by her manager Bernie Young. The pictures have caused a stir online as many people have shared their support for her, while others called it 'karma'.

The last time that Williams appeared on her show was on July 16, 2021 In a statement posted to Instagram on Thursday, "Wendy is dealing with some ongoing health issues and is undergoing further evaluations. She will not be able to complete her promotional activities next week, but can't wait to be back in her purple chair on Monday, September 20th for the 13th season premiere."
The statement did not mention what Williams is currently grappling with, but this is not the first time the TV icon's health has kept her from appearing on camera. As per the publication, the TV host announced that she would be taking a break from her daytime talk show last year while she battled with health issues related to her Graves' disease diagnosis.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Graves' disease is "an immune system disorder that results in the overproduction of thyroid hormones." A few months ago, Williams told People that she was feeling better after taking a hiatus. "I feel a hundred percent better than I was a few months ago. I had a storm going in my body is the best way I can explain it. It came from me neglecting my six-month endocrinology appointment. I have Graves disease and hyperthyroid. If you have one you don’t necessarily have to have the other, but I have both, and I was diagnosed with both 19 years ago."
On Twitter, some share their support and prayers. "sending love, light, peace, strength & divine HEALING! Take care of yourself @WendyWilliams nothing or no one is more important than you! WE LOVE YOU! SENDING GOOD VIBES AND POSITIVE ENERGY YOUR WAY. SENDING JOY DEEP IN YOUR SOUL! JOY IS STRENGTH!" one user wrote.

Williams told her audience of her Graves' disease diagnosis in early 2018. "My thyroid has been totally cattywampus. I feel like there are birds swimming around my head … Constantly high. But not high," she said. "My doctor has prescribed - are you ready? Three weeks of vacation. I was pissed. Encore performances, really?"
