Wendy was set to start the 13th season of her show this past September, but a breakthrough COVID infection has prevented Wendy from getting back to work on time, and she has been absent from the new season so far. Producers have scrambled to make the show happen, but for Wendy's fans, it's just not the same without her, and Williams knows it.

All signs seem to be positive for her making her return before the end of the year. Although sources close to Williams say she is in good spirits, she is certainly looking to return to her show as soon as humanly possible. She took to Instagram this week to let her viewers know how she is coming along.

Wendy Williams On Her Health Issues

“HOW YOU DOIN’? I MISS YOU ALL! As everyone knows, my health has been a hot topic - I’m making progress, but it’s just one of those things that’s taking longer than we expected. I’m a woman of a certain age, and I know enough to listen to my doctors and will return to my purple chair as soon as we all agree I’m ready.”

Williams was also quick to thank her production company and roster of guest hosts. She also had words for her viewers, adding: “Most of all, I want to thank my fans. I have heard your prayers and comments and feel all the love! You are everything to me.”However long, it looks like a full recovery is on the horizon. Let's hope to see Wendy back on the air very soon.
