Wendy Williams breaks silence on health crisis & insists she's coming back as she vows to 'return to purple chair'
WENDY Williams broke her silence for the first time on her health crisis and revealed she's "making progress."
The famous talk show host has not been able to grace the stage this new season.
The 57-year-old took to Instagram and told her fans: "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."
Wendy continued: "I want to thank all of my staff and our guest hosts for stepping up and stepping in while I can’t be there. I also want to thank Debmar-Mercury and our stations for being so understanding and supportive while I work my way back.
"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.
"I love spending my mornings with you all and I’m doing everything I can to get back to work, but right now Wendy has to focus on Wendy. I love you for watching…"
Fans were quick to react in the comments section, as one wrote: "Hurry back, but get well first love."

Another added: "Get well soon Wendy, we love you," while a third chimed in, "Take your time in healing your health is important."
Wendy, who was recently seen sitting in a wheelchair with visibly swollen legs outside of her New York City penthouse, has delayed her return to the purple chair various times in the last couple of weeks.
WENDY'S HEALTH ISSUES
It kicked off back in September, when an ambulance was pictured outside Wendy's swanky apartment building.
The Sun was first to report that police received a 911 call from her building at 8 am about a “57-year-old female in need of psychiatric services.”
The Sun later reported that the TV star had been “struggling with addiction” leading up to her hospitalization.
“Wendy was drinking every day, even while filming the show,” an insider previously revealed to The Sun.
As the host's health complications continued, the popular program was postponed from its original return date of September 20th.
Wendy also got a positive Covid-19 diagnosis amid her ongoing health problems.
While Wendy has been open about her addiction struggles, she also has been dealing with "psychiatric issues" and Graves' disease.
FILLING IN FOR WENDY
While the former radio DJ has not been able to host The Wendy Williams Show this season, many famous faces have done their part to fill in during her absence.
Notable names like Leah Remini, Sherri Shepherd, Whitney Cummings, Jerry Springer, Michael Rapaport, and Bill Bellamy tried their hand as guest hosts.
However, Leah and Sherri have stood out, as some have been begging for the latter to take over the hosting role permanently.
During Sherri's episodes, one fan said: "I’m hoping she gets better…but Sherri is great! I think she needs a show of her own."
Another added: "Just change it to The Sherri Show and let Sherri do Sherri!"
