*With her daily talk show on hiatus amid the coronavirus self-quarantine, Wendy Williams is moving platforms to YouTube while the nation is under mass quarantine.
She took to her Instagram page to update followers about her self-isolating experience and plans to return to work.
“I’m trying to stay calm. I walked downstairs and stepped in throw up! I know EXACTLY who did it! Myway loves to play with rubber bands and there was a rubber band mix in which means she swallowed! I keep telling them this is not the time to act a fool. Btw I’m gonna start YouTube tmrw evening. #socialdistancing #meditation #calm,” she wrote on IG, Celebrity Insider reports.
Meanwhile, a source previously shared that Wendy was “weighing her options” after “The Wendy Williams Show” curbed filming with an in-studio audience due to COVID-19 concerns.

“Wendy knows this hiatus is for the safety of everybody involved so of course, she supports the decision,” the source dished. “But she is using her social platform to continue connecting with her audience and has been throwing the idea around of perhaps doing something from home. Nobody knows for sure how long this is going to go on for and anything is possible in terms of weighing their options right now.”
Show producers informed staffers about the hiatus in a memo, which was obtained by Deadline:
