Wendy Williams

Wendy Williams addressed speculation that she is too weak to stand during her popular daytime show, The Wendy Williams Show. Viewers noticed the 54-year-old talk show Diva sitting in a chair for extended periods of time.

Wendy also sits during product demos with guests, which is unusual because she normally stands.

Rumors swirled that Wendy is sitting because she suffers from chronic fatigue related to her health problems. She also collapsed onstage during an episode of her show last year.

Wendy, who was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, addressed the speculation about her health status during her show on Tuesday.

"So, it has come to my attention, um, that you all are noticing that I sit... a lot," she said. "I have several seats. I sit in the audience; I sit to do demo products... You know why? Because I want to."

She added: "Because this is my show, and this is how I want to do it... In terms of how I feel, I'm feeling swell."

Wendy also blamed her frequent airline travel, saying flying in and out of town leaves her exhausted.

"Look, there is not a talk show host, day or night that does it better than me," she said as her audience cheered.

    I dont see the ladies of The View or The Talk OR The Real up very much on a consistent basis. Up walking around. Like Im not sure wtf is going on over in Hollywood-Land, but I am defending MAD folks that I do not even LIKE most times here lately. Like A LOT.

  • iWasteTime

    What are y'all getting mom for Christmas?
    I need something from me to her ...

  • Nik

    It's her show and it's doing well whether she sits or stands. People just need something to talk about. She is doing what she loves and she will ride that thang out until the wheels fall off. She has a right to.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I don't watch her show. Was she standing up before? I'm assuming if people are noticing it, this must be a change in behavior. Idk. Idc.

    I really don't think I would respond to you mfers if I was rich. Like, I just can't see myself being bothered with the opinions of mfers that don't impact my life at all.

  • Nik

    In my house Christmas is suspended for adults, but I will cook my mother a nice dinner. That's a gift that keeps on giving!

  • FukkFolks2018

    A Roku/ Last one I am getting her and she needs to stop letting the baby niece and nephew tear up her SHIT...and a purse with $50 in it

  • FukkFolks2018

    This too. Dinner. I am hosting Christmas. I am getting my mama something tho. These damn kids would revolt against me if I didnt lol. She is kind, smart, and important and cute for a lil 70 yo lady.

  • xenaD

    Damn. Mfers notice and speculate about any and every damn thing. Aggravating.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    Because I want to."

    She added: "Because this is my show, and this is how I want to do it...

  • ohdearme

    Oh for heavens sake, sit, stand, spin or do cartwheels, I'm not a daytime tv viewer however when I see news clips about these shows it seems to me that everyone is sitting. What's the big deal? Damn people need hobbies or an extra job.

  • Renee26

  • Renee26

  • Guess Who

    In fairness...her massive head and huge fake tits are heavy. She has legs the size of an 11 year old anorexic. I can see why she sits down a lot.

    You ain't neva lied. That's why I limit my benevolence towards my mother to small items because she feels entitled to other people's salaries, and without apology.

  • tia

    Why does she need to stand? Another unsatisfied customer. Anyway, sometimes Wendy seems like "she's out of it" and "over it."
    Especially, doing the Hot Topics segments. She comes off as just "going thru the motions."
    I still look forward to watching tho.

  • FukkFolks2018

    LAWD. Im so sorry. *hugs ya* Im sure its a blessing but Im also sure there are times it gets to be A LOT

  • FukkFolks2018

    I meant it too. The kids destroy her stuff we get her and then she LIES to protect them. NOPE.

    I know a lady just like her, but 'cept she be covering from grown azz folks, smh

  • Panther Charleston

    Wendy, attitude much? Yeesh.

  • Renee26

    Ok! Let her sit in peace

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    she should have told them that queens sit while others stand, LOL!

  • EasyBreezy

    As a fan of Wendy's unapologetic style, I am not surprised at her comments re: sitting more. If sitting is needed due to health concerns, it's unfortunate- but it's her business. Candidly, I have noticed several changes that could be attributed to managing her illness; persistent mistakes & missteps while reading cue cards, wobbling mannerisms while in flats, persistent, worsening belching (uber annoying & no longer funny), more weight loss, and widening eyes. I appreciate that she plans to keep-on-keeping-on. Prayers for improved health, Wendy!

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    I do sit on my ass but I'm not making millions......SMDH

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Wendy be high asf on prescription https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c1425c997ed3319b16098cad0d4bebaabde80cd22860d557863b4ff2c949aed9.gif meds that's why she sitting .... carry on

  • hi-liter

    Kathy Lee say she tied of getting drunk at 10am every morning, she leaving Today Show in April 2019.

  • Logan Roberts

    Wendy seems tired & just over it to me. She never can get the hot topic stories together. If the host doesn't seem interested neither am I ?

  • Logan Roberts

    I actually clapped as she was announcing her departure. Never liked her & I hope they get Jenna Bush to replace her.

  • hi-liter

    Wonders does she have Graves’ disease...bulging eyes is a symptom.

  • hi-liter

    They need to throw that whole hour away. Jenna might work.

  • Judge Mental Will

    Why stand when you can sit?? Why walk when you can drive?? Why drive when you can fly?? In other words IM LAZY AF! MIND YOUR BUSINESS PEOPLE!!

  • SweetTEE

    I most certainly noticed all of this when I watched the show last week..I never get to watch bc I'm usually working, but hunty, you can tell something in the milk aint clean. She needs a break.

  • EasyBreezy

    Yes. Last year she stated her doctor was treating her for it.

  • Renee26

    Yes ma'am

  • Scorpio

    Actually I've noticed how she no longer wears high heels, and seems to be a little off balance at times.

  • natural@blk@luv

    I dont care

  • Trace da Ace

    so what...NEXT!

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Wendell Bartholomeow said she fine. Until she passes out again.

  • kobeptwn

    She can talk dirt about EVERYONE, but is super DEFENSIVE when people talk about her, hypocrite 101

  • Marlika

    I used to watch hot topics on YouTube, but haven’t done so in MONTHS!! She always just puts a bad taste in my mouth the way always negative about people. And I hate that way she interviews she so damn disrespectful especially to the younger guest. I remember how she kept questioning Quincy all these questions about Al B Sure & Puff about him being adopted. Question she should asked his damn parents. When Puff did her show bitch didn’t utter a word about it.

    She’s a very miserable person.

  • CaramelDream

    Wendy is clearly suffering from some illness. The weight loss and wobbling all the time . . . . I hope she gets well soon.

  • Applebootay

    Now that's just mean....LOL

  • Floriduhh Evans

    Wish I could upvote 100x

  • Rikshawbus Dabangup

    Feeling swell then in the same breath saying she's exhausted...wendy done turned to an arrogant bragged, who can sometimes barely read the teleprompter or whatever she reads.

  • Rikshawbus Dabangup

    Maybe she's silicone poisoned...some of that shit gotta be leaking in those balloons of hers.

  • pure_rachet

    She always talks about how she has vertigo. She quit the heels after she fainted. I’m an avid Wendy fan lol

  • Rikshawbus Dabangup

    What cave you been living in...or you just acting like you can make an educated guess...
    That info has been out there practically every day for about 8 months in a row after she fainted. Plus it came from the horse-face mouth herself.

  • hi-liter

    And? Who are you? I don’t claim to know these people personally. Fuc out my face.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I prefer to sit down when possible too, nothing to see here folks!

  • Chicagowise

    Prince did his last concerts, while sitting down. He rarely got up from the piano. Everyone knew something was wrong. This sounds eerily similar.

  • Betty Johnson

    Wendy, you better get your act together. YOU need US more than we need your ass. Don't take out your miserable life with your cheating ass husband on US. Better step lightly or there's gonna be someone else in your spot...at home and on TV!!

  • Sassie

    She always talked about how she always had to concentrate "really hard" in high heels so she wouldn't fall. She always talks about her equilibrium issues.

  • Sassie

    Basically......

  • Sassie

    I've noticed her burping before too, LOL....it's so unladylike on national tv, but I guess she can't help it, LOL

  • Sassie

    Damn, LOL

  • Li-Wright

    She's not a well woman, plus those big boobs are probably tearing at her back....Back problems.

  • Mona Lisa

    Either that or she’s back on drugs.

  • cheechee1x1

    Yes, Wendy has graves disease with an overactive thyroid.

  • dontgetblocked

    I would sit too. I've got feet problems, arthritis, and other ailments. She's 54. Give her a break. I don't care for her much but I get tired of folks always commenting on other people's health. Hypothyroidism is a serious illnesses. I think people need to thank God that they're healthy and pray for people who have issues.

  • Shaylove1975

    Wendy is very good at hiding things. Unless she falls out dead no one will know anything.

  • EasyBreezy

    Chrissy Tiegen would be PERFECT!

  • ?jessica?

    I wish they would just back-up off of Wendy. I like the new her, back I the day Wendy was mess and messy?

  • d marino

    Her response is lame. Why can't she just tell the truth. She clearly has a physical problem of some sort. It is quite obvious and on her show with Martha Stewart as guest, she hurried to the dining table setup and sat down while Martha was showing off her collection of xmas stuff. Wendy was obviously not able to stand even for a few minutes. She also stopped wearing high heels after her illness a while back so something physical is happening with her.

  • d marino

    Hypothyroidism doesn't make you have to stay sitting most all of the time.

  • d marino

    i didn't think of that but hey, those monster boobs have to be a problem at this stage of her life. Imagine what they look like without a bra? All boobs sag with age, even the fake ones.

  • d marino

    Bingo!

  • d marino

    It is our business as her viewing audience. When something doesn't fit right with her show and we are left out of the information then she will fall on her own. Without the public she has no bucks of wealth with her show!

  • d marino

    This is a gossip show. Period. That is what her show is based on, Hollywood and the Music Industry gossip! Without the inside track on the "stars", she has no show.

  • d marino

    Her issues will come out eventually. Gossip happens!

  • Erma Robinson

    Why not pray for her. Her telling the world what the problem is do what for us?

  • duh!

    That husband of hers probably passed her a incurable disease from all his philandering
