*Wendy Williams has again pushed back her return to her daytime talk show. She was originally set to comeback June 7 but the ailing 54-year-old won’t grace your small screens until Jan. 14, according to reports.

Before the holiday, the media diva announced she was taking a week off to heal from a fractured shoulder. According to a Variety, guest hosts will fill in until she returns. The hosts have not  announced yet.

Fans and colleagues are concerned about Wendy’s health, and believe her condition is worse than she’s letting on. As noted by SandraRose, Williams has shown signs of neurological decline lately, including slurred speech, absent staring, and decreased mobility.

Last week, rumors swirled that her husband, Kevin Hunter, held a staff meeting and popped off about leaks to the press.

“Kevin sat down the entire ‘Wendy’ staff on Monday morning,” a source told Radar Online. “Everyone thought Kevin was going to provide an update on Wendy’s health, but instead Kevin ranted for almost an hour about the leaks coming out of the show to the press.”

Hunter allegedly read “specific articles and headlines” in an “intimidating voice” to employees.

“He was overly paranoid about any info about their private life leaking,” the insider said. “The strange part was he provided no update on Wendy’s health, when she would be back or how she was feeling, which was clearly info that everyone at the show needs to do their jobs,” the insider said. “He was threatening that whomever was the source would be caught.”

And Hunter is said to be “testing the staff by leaking out information to certain people to see if he can catch someone.”

As previously reported, Hunter is rumored to have sold a home he shared with his alleged mistress, Sharina Hudson. The house was reportedly located less than 10 miles from the home he shares with Wendy and their son, Kevin Hunter, Jr.
