Wendy Williams teases return with a big health update
New York, New York - Wendy Williams has shared an update on her ongoing health issues and her absence from her eponymous talk show.
On Thursday, the Wendy Williams Show host called into Good Morning America, on which she dished on how she's fairing amid her extended absence.
First, the TV personality slammed rumors that she was in poor health.
"When people want control of their accounts, they say anything, including something crazy like that about me," she began.
The daytime host continued, "My health is very well. And I've actually had a few appointments. You know, I'm 57 now and I have the mind and body of a 25-year-old."
Williams also addressed the end of her long-running talk show after 13th season. Last month brought news that the popular morning program would be canceled, with its time slot taken over by Sherri Shepherd.
The Wendy Williams Show began its latest season in November 2021 after several setbacks due to Williams' health. In her absence, the syndicated series has been hosted by a few of the Williams' friends – including Shepherd.
When asked when she'll be ready to get back to working, the host shared, "I'm very comfortable. You know, my partners with the show, everybody's ready. Give me about three months."
"There are private things that I have to deal with and then I'll be ready to come back and be free and ready to do my thing," the 57-year-old added.
Williams ended the chat by directly addressing fans, "Keep watching."
"I'm going to be back on the Wendy show. Bigger and brighter than ever," Williams teased.
