Wendy Williams’ health has been a topic of discussion both on her show and behind the scenes.
The daytime talk show host announced earlier this week that she fractured her shoulder, but sources close to Wendy are concerned that there are much bigger issues going on.
In recent weeks, Wendy has modified her show to accommodate her health — if you notice she’s now sitting almost the entire show.
As rumors of declining health began to circulate online, Wendy spoke out in her own defense:
“You all notice that I sit a lot. I love to have several seats,” she said. “I don’t just sit here. I’ve been sitting in the audience, I sit to do demo projects as well. You know why? ‘Cause I want to. ‘Cause this is my show and this is how I want to do it. I bust my ass on this show every single day.”
She added that her rigorous schedule off the show has played a role in her newly-sedentary lifestyle.
“There is not a talk show host day or not that does it better than me,” she said. “I’m not running so hard anymore. … It’s my party. Welcome to it. And in terms of how I’m feeling, I’m feeling swell.”
As we said earlier, sources close to Wendy aren’t convinced she’s “feeling swell” and believe that her battle with Graves disease is just a small part of what’s really going on.
“She’s wobbly all the time, and has been cussing out Whoopi Goldberg behind-the-scenes — without Whoopi being anywhere near,” an inside source exclusively tells lovebscott.com.
Wendy’s alleged odd-behavior has even sparked rumors of self-medication.
“[People close to Wendy] suspect she might be self-medicating (either with opioids or prescription pills),” the source continues. “[The staff] is routinely having to adjust to her health issues — i.e. not walking out for the beginning of the show, zoning out during segments, etc. They’re really embarrassed about the whole situation.”
Speaking of situations — do you remember that big scandal involving Wendy’s husband and his alleged mistress that’s living down the street from their New Jersey home? Well, our source says she might just be pregnant.
“She’s allegedly pregnant and still living just down the street from their house. Word around the show is that they’re going to divorce sometime now that little Kevin has gone college.”
We know…there’s a lot of speculation going on here. Ultimately, we want Wendy to take care of herself — but it’s clear that something’s going on.
