WENDY Williams has been forced to cancel her public appearances as she deals with health issues.

On Thursday, a message shared to the Wendy Show Instagram, announced that the 57-year-old was taking a step back amid "further evaluations."

The post read: "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 Wendy Williams Show host has previously spoken about suffering from Graves' disease.

Fans became concerned about Wendy's health in 2017, when she fainted during a live taping of her show on Halloween.

At the time, the host blamed it on being overheated and low electrolytes.

But in February 2018 the TV star announced that she had Graves' disease, and had been living with it for years.

She also said that it was the cause of her "bulgy" eyes.

Graves' disease is an autoimmune disorder that causes hyperthyroidism and is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism in the U.S. The disease affects about 1 in 200 people.

In March Wendy showed viewers a close-up of her severely swollen ankles as she suffers from Lymphedema.

Wendy asked for a closeup of her feet and said: "Do you see my feet? Do you see how they barely fit in my shoes even? I have Lymphedema. I've had it now for a few years…

"Mine [my feet] are discolored. They're hardened. I can't wear boots. I can't believe in our comment section people say, why does she walk like that.

"Well if you see me in an airport, you'll be like is that Wendy in a wheelchair? Yup. I can't even walk two city blocks. You know you got the numbness and whatnot. It's not curable…"

The daytime talk show host admitted she can't even walk two blocks because of the disease.

Last year, Wendy clapped back at those trolling her Lymphedema during an after-show on Instagram: “Stop asking me about the cankles, I have Lymphedema.

“Stop asking me why I wear sneakers, I have Lymphedema. Stop asking me why my eyes bulge, I’ve got Graves’ disease. Stop asking me, like, dumb mess! Can we connect on a more cerebral level?”


It comes after Wendy was spotted with a new man as she celebrated her son's 21st birthday last month.

Wendy shared a snap with her man in the car captioned: My son’s 21st birthday party on the yacht in #Miami was everything he wanted! Even my boyfriend."

Earlier this year Wendy dated Maryland-based Mike Esterman, a celebrity booker who also worked in real estate.

In May, Mike confirmed the pair have drifted apart because they have no time to see each other due to his hectic work schedule.

Mike told The Sun exclusively: "It's a busy time of the year for home improvement, I don't know if I can give her what she wants.

Mike went on: "Nobody called it a day, there's just no time to meet up. We talk when we can. I can't hold her back from meeting someone who can give her more.

The pair met in February on Wendy's show when Mike appeared on a dating game segment.

She split from her ex-husband Kevin Hunter, with whom she shares son Kevin Jr., in 2019, following 20 years of marriage.
