*Wendy Williams’ television hiatus will be over March 19, the controversial talk show host announced on Twitter. After fainting on-air and then blaming it on the heat from the studio lights, she decided to take some time off to focus on her hyperthyroidism and Graves’ disease, per her doctor’s orders.
And next week, actor Jerry O’Connell will fill in as Williams’ first-ever guest-host.
“Jerry has been such a good friend to me and to the show,” Williams said in a statement. “We’re happy to welcome him as a guest host while I’m out getting much-needed rest. Can’t wait to get back in my purple chair!”
O’Connell reassured Wendy that he plans to honor her tone for the show while she’s away: “We will say it like we mean it!”
“The Wendy Williams Show” airs weekdays (check local listings).
