Last week rumors spread that talk show maven Wendy Williams had suffered a mental breakdown and was hospitalized on a mental ward.

YouTube star Tasha K, who broke the news about Wendy's ex-husband, Kevin Hunter, fathering a child out of wedlock, reported that Wendy was hospitalized and may not return to her show any time soon.

But the 55-year-old talk show host resurfaced on Monday outside her Manhattan condo. Wendy looked good for someone who was supposedly hospitalized with a mental breakdown.

She wore a face mask and a grey hoodie over a black top. Her neck and wrist were dripping in diamonds.

Wendy carried a newspaper, dated June 1, 2020, as proof that she is out and about and doing well.

Wendy enlisted someone to take a photo of her for the 'Gram, since there were no paparazzi around.

She captioned the photo: "Wow June is here! I didn't see paparazzi but ok. I needed my stuff before NYC dark. Black lives have ALWAYS mattered."

One telltale sign that she was indeed in a hospital recently is a large bruise on the back of her left hand where a nurse or doctor attempted to start an IV but ruptured her fragile vein instead. The spot on her left hand is easily recognizable as an IV infiltration.

Wendy, who was filming her popular talk show from home, was forced to halt taping of the show with just a skeleton crew in her NYC studio due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Variety.com exclusively reported that Wendy was taking a hiatus due to her ongoing medical issues with Graves' disease in May.

Reportedly Williams suffered crushing fatigue among other symptoms related to her diagnosis.

"In consultation with her doctor and as a precautionary measure, she will be taking some time off as she continues to receive treatment," read a statement from her publicist.

Wendy Williams is taking another hiatus from her hit talk show as she deals with fatigue and other "symptoms from her Graves' disease".

Wendy had been taping episodes of her popular talk show from her Manhattan condo after laying off her staff during the coronavirus pandemic.

The 55-year-old will be taking a break from her self-titled program while struggling with issues such as fatigue, a spokesperson for The Wendy Williams Show said in a statement.

"Wendy has been dealing with symptoms from her Graves' disease, which is causing fatigue," the representative said. "In consultation with her doctor and as a precautionary measure, she will be taking some time off as she continues to receive treatment. We look forward to welcoming Wendy back soon and continuing the Wendy@Home shows."

It's not as yet clear when Williams will be returning to the talk show.

Williams has suffered from Graves' disease, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid, since 1999. It is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism.

The disease caused her legs to swell, making it difficult for her to walk. She took a six-week hiatus from The Wendy Williams Show in 2019 after fracturing her shoulder.

After returning to the show in March that year, Wendy told her viewers that she had been focusing on her sobriety after spending time at a live-in alcohol rehab facility.

Nicki Minaj raised eyebrows when she added a last minute verse to her and Doja Cat's "Say So" remix after apparently listening to Beyonce's impressive rap effort on Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage" remix.

Beyonce and Megan dropped the track to great reviews on Thursday. The mother-of-three flexed her rap skills on "Savage," saying, "If you want to see some real ass, baby here's your chance."

On the same day, Nicki and Doja announced they too were dropping a remix. Nicki urged fans to ignore the first leak of "Say So" and wait for the second release that contained this messy verse:

"Why you talkin' 'bout who body fake? With all them fillers in your face, you just full of hate. That real ass ain't keep your nigga home. Now you're lookin silly, that's word to silicone..."

Speculation ran rampant that Nicki was dissing either Beyonce or talk TV guru Wendy Williams in the remix. But Nicki cleared the air by taking to Instagram and posting: "The line ain't about Wendy tho #SaySoRemix."

Both Nicki and Beyonce are pushing 40. It makes sense for them to hitch their wagons to younger artists to stay relevant in a younger market.

The real surprise is that neither woman approached fading star Cardi B for a collabo.

Wendy Williams is ready to return to the airwaves after her daytime talk show went on mandatory hiatus amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Her last show was taped on March 12 without an audience. Wendy, 55, said she received a call telling her the network was "shutting down everything, all the networks. Nobody is going to be doing new shows. We want all the hosts to be well."

Wendy said she initially resisted going on hiatus. "I said, 'But I can do it even with no audience. I don't even have to have the staffers there because I did that for two days.' But they said, 'No. We need to have you home, indefinitely.' There will be no more Wendy or any of the other people for a period of time.'"

But after a week of quarantine with just her cats to keep her company, Wendy is going stir crazy. She misses doing what she does best: entertaining her TV audience who are like family to her.

"I'm willing to risk it with one camera and a flashlight. I'm ready to go back to work next week," she said. "I'm ready to go back to work when we're like - come on, let's go!"

CBS News, ABC, CNN, Conde Nast, Vox Media, and the New York Times all reported cases of the coronavirus among staff.

An audio technician for NBC News died this week after testing positive for the virus. NBC Chairman Andy Lack said longtime staff member Larry Edgeworth had "suffered from other health issues that led him to succumb to the illness."

The coronavirus causes no symptoms or mild symptoms in most healthy adults. The virus causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and potentially fatal pneumonia among the elderly population, particularly those with chronic illnesses such as respiratory and heart problems.

Also at risk are smokers (cigarettes, weed) or young people who vape.

Nicki Minaj expressed her embarrassment after the feds arrested her husband, Kenny Petty, for failing to register as a sex offender in California.

Petty, who moved to L.A. from New York, was arrested back in November for not registering as a sex offender on the West Coast. He was released on $20,000 bond and ordered to register, as required by law.

He was arrested again on March 4, when police determined he still had not registered. He was released on bond again, and, as of Monday, he is listed on the registry.

Among those sharpening their knives when the story broke was Wendy Williams, who slammed the Barbie rapper for marrying an ex-con sex offending murderer in the first place.

Williams, 55, who previously criticized Nicki for marrying Petty, didn't have time to broach the subject during her Hot Topic's segment on Tuesday. She told her audience she will lead with the story on Wednesday's show.

"That's going to be my first story tomorrow, and I'm going to lead with this: You should've never married him, because now you've ruined everything about what your brand could be, again. You're never gonna stand a chance when you're with a man who pulls a knife at rape point... a molester... a registered sex offender. You're never going to stand a chance with John Q. Public. Because there's only one thing worse than touching children and pulling knives, and that's murder. By the way, he did go to jail for manslaughter."

Question: Did Nicki destroy her career because of her poor choice in a man?

Ashley Graham shared a personal snap of herself giving birth to her first child, Isaac, in celebration of International Women's Day on Sunday, March 8.

The plus-size model welcomed her son with husband, film director Justin Ervin, back in January. She took to Instagram on Sunday to share a photo of herself suffering during childbirth to celebrate "the face of my greatest strength. The greatest pain I've ever known and the greatest accomplishment that I've ever achieved."
 

"On this International Women's Day understand that despite whatever pain or trial we have all experienced as women, we are also strong, powerful and capable of accomplishing greatness. Happy International Women's Day! Let's all celebrate our, and each other's strengths today," she added.

Ashley, 32, was praised by fans for documenting her childbirth journey, speaking about changes to her body and the difficulties of parenting in social media posts.

But the first-time mom caught flack last month after she posted an image that showed her changing Isaac's dirty diaper on the floor of a Staples office store.

She captioned the image:

"Sh-t just got real! First diaper blow up while running errands with no restroom in sight! Thank God I remembered to put the changing mat in the diaper bag!!!

While her followers supported the model, she was heavily criticized by Wendy Williams on her popular daytime talk show. "I don't want to see that," Wendy said, expressing her disgust and disapproval.

NeNe Leakes blames Wendy Williams' estranged husband Kevin Hunter for sabotaging her talk show.

NeNe and Wendy have been tight as a hand in glove for the past few months. But NeNe believes Wendy's ex prevented her from landing her own talk show that might compete with Wendy's show.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is concerned about her immediate future amid rumors that Bravo TV bosses are trying to cut her loose.

At 52, the former stripper knows she is not the ratings draw she once was. She reportedly retained celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom to file an undisclosed lawsuit.

During NeNe's visit to The Breakfast Club, co-host Charlamagne the God asked NeNe about rumors that she was in talks to host her own talk show similar to her friend Wendy's popular show.

When asked if Wendy or Kevin blocked the show, NeNe replied, "I think it was her husband."

She added Kevin was "never nice" to her and he didn't want her around. She also revealed she didn't bring up her suspicions with her bestie, Wendy.

It seems NeNe doesn't want to believe Wendy also had a hand in her talk show's demise.

The Dallas stripper who fell 2 stories off a stripper pole and fractured her jaw is done with stripping.

Genea Sky has received so many blessings as a result of her frightening fall, that she says she is done stripping for good.

Sky was a guest on Friday's episode of The Wendy Williams Show, The Blast reports. She showed Wendy Williams her wired jaw, and she said the $40,000 GoFundMe cash she received for her medical expenses inspired her to make a career change.

In addition to a fractured jaw, Sky lost some teeth and injured her hip.

"I'm done," she told Wendy, 55. She said the fall was a "blessing in disguise" because she was looking for a way out of the stripper industry.

Wendy Williams tearfully apologized to cross-dressing men after she criticized them for imitating biological women by wearing stereotypical feminine attire.

During Thursday's Hot Topics segment, the 55-year-old divorcée discussed "Galentine's Day," and observed that a few men in the audience were clapping.

Wendy told her audience how she really feels about men reinforcing gender stereotypes by wearing feminine dresses, skirts, high heels and handbags.

"And stop wearing our skirts and our heels. Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves? Looky here now, gay men, you'll never be the woman that we are, No matter how gay."

Her criticism did not go over well with LGBT+ members of her TV crew or the LGBT+ community, who reminded Wendy that they are half of her television audience.

On Friday, Wendy tearfully apologized and promised to do better. "I'll start by saying I apologize, I did not mean to offend my LGBTQ+ community on yesterday's show," she said.

"I did not realize until I got home, and I watched the second running of our show. I didn't mean to hurt anybody's feelings. I'm just having a conversation. If you know me long enough, then you know, I live and let live every day. Life is too short. I'm 55 years old, and maybe I sounded like your auntie, your mother, your big sister, or somebody out of touch. I'm not out of touch, except for perhaps yesterday by saying what I said. I deeply apologize. I will do better."

Wendy Williams is on the hot seat again - this time she upset cross-dressing men for impersonating women by "wearing our skirts and heels."

The popular daytime talk show host made the comments during Thursday's episode of The Wendy Williams Show.

During her Hot Topics segment, the 55-year-old divorcée discussed "Galentine's Day," and observed that a few men in the audience were clapping.

After holding her tongue for years about the LGBT+ agenda, Wendy told her audience how she really feels about men reinforcing gender stereotypes by wearing feminine dresses, skirts, high heels and handbags.

"If you're a man, stop clapping, you're not even a part of this," she said. "You don't understand the rules of the day. It's women going out and getting saucy and then going home (alone). You're not a part. I don't care if you're gay. You don't get a period every 28 days. You can do a lot that we do, but I get offended by the idea that we go through something you will never go through."

The single mom of one continued:

"And stop wearing our skirts and our heels. Just saying, girls, what do we have for ourselves? Looky here now, gay men, you'll never be the woman that we are, No matter how gay."

Needless to say, Wendy's speech did not go over well on Twitter.

Wendy Williams does not have bubble guts, Okay? The 55-year-old talk show host denied reports that she farted on live television, insisting she would have laughed out loud if she had.

A clip of The Wendy Williams Show host went viral after fans were convinced they heard the TV guru passing gas while presenting her Hot Topics segment on January 17.

On Thursday's episode, Wendy addressed the speculation, saying she did not fart on live television.

She played the footage and told her audience: "I have never farted once on this show. As a matter of fact, I barely fart, you know why? Because gas gets released several different ways and mine is belching, because all I do is talk."

Wendy also explained why she prefers leaning on her chair armrest.

"Let me tell you something right now, okay? I don't lean over like this to release a fart, I lean over like this because it's comfortable. If I sit (straight up) all the time, it's heavy on my spine... I like to release my hips and lean, you know what I'm saying?... I've been doing this for 11 years on this show!"

She also told the audience that if she had broke wind on air, she wouldn't have been able to conceal her laughter.

"I would have definitely been laughing because farts are always funny. You know a girl like me would have been laughing at that!” she giggled.

The star also made reference to the wet noise heard in the video clip, adding, "By the sound of that fart, I would have had to go change my costume! I would have left a mark in the seat. I wouldn’t even save the costume, I would have thrown it away. It'd probably be soiled beyond soiled-tivity."

Wendy Show producer Norman Baker and stagehand John Anderson explained that the sound happened while setting up for a segment with scientific author Dr. Kate Biberdorf.

"We were filling up a fish tank backstage and we didn't have the proper hose. The air was just coming out and it was sputtering like someone was farting. Okay? So that's what it was. It wasn't Wendy!" Anderson confirmed.

Wendy Williams is officially a single mother. The 55-year-old daytime talk show host finalized her divorce from cheating husband Kevin Hunter Sr.

Wendy suffered public humiliation when Kevin's mistress, Sharina Hudson, delivered a baby girl last year. After denying his cheating ways for years, Wendy finally filed for divorce after checking out of an in-patient alcohol rehab facility in New York.

In court documents obtained by Page Six, Wendy cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce action which she filed in April 2019.

Both Wendy and Kevin agreed to forego alimony in exchange for keeping a $1 million life insurance policy that will go to Kevin if she dies an untimely death.

Wendy retained the right to reduce the amount on a yearly basis. She is also responsible for covering health insurance premiums for Kevin and his infant daughter.

Wendy and Kevin agreed to split the proceeds from the sale of their Livingston, New Jersey mansion which is still on the market for $1.7 million. Wendy listed the house last year for $1.9 million.

After moving into a luxury Manhattan penthouse last year, Wendy paid Kevin $250,000 to help him and his mistress find new living arrangements, Page Six reports.

Kevin, 49, also received an undisclosed lump sum from Wendy, and a severance payment from Wendy, Inc. He will maintain ownership of his businesses and his cars, including a Ferrari and Rolls Royce SUV.

They each agreed to pay their own legal fees.

Fans of The Wendy Williams Show are convinced Wendy Williams passed gas on live TV while discussing Odell Beckham Jr's arrest warrant.

Photo may have been deleted

The incident occurred during Friday's episode of The Wendy Williams Show. Wendy, 55, wore a red jumpsuit and sat awkwardly while leaning to the right in an arm chair onstage.

As she discussed Beckham Jr's charges for butt slapping an officer, a distinct sound can be heard on the video.

Many viewers swear the wet sound was Wendy letting out a fart on air. Some viewers claim they heard it but others say they did not hear anything. Some viewers say the video clip was altered to add the fart.

Others said the incident was "Karma" after Wendy mocked actor Joaquin Phoenix's cleft lip. Wendy apologized profusely for her insensitive comments toward the "Joker" star.

What causes excessive flatulence?

Flatulence is the accumulation of gasses in the colon and rectum. Doctors say passing gas is normal. Most healthy people pass gas between 14 and 23 times a day. But if you break wind more than that, you should consult a doctor because you could have a more serious GI problem.

Excessive flatulence is usually harmless and caused by swallowing air, chewing gum, sucking hard candy, eating gas-producing food such as lentils and beans, eggs, cheese, drinking carbonated sodas, or eating soluble fiber (like that found in some fruits and vegetables).

Black people are more lactose intolerant than other races. Blacks should avoid dairy products such as cow's milk that contain lactose.

Wendy Williams chastised NFL star Odell Beckham Jr for laying hands on another man's butt over the weekend.

The incident occurred during a post-game celebration in LSU's locker room after winning the national title at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in Louisiana on Monday night. The Louisiana native is an LSU alumni.

When Beckham spotted an officer bending over, he stared intently at the cop's buttocks before delivering a hard slap on the cop's butt.

The New Orleans Police Department issued an arrest warrant for Beckham for "simple assault" on Thursday.

"You should've known better," said Williams, 55, on Friday's episode of her daytime talk show.

"Odell at 27 years old, you're old enough to understand political correctness in the time we live in now. You can't just slap people on the booty. He probably knows it's not right for a man to a woman or a woman to a man, but you can't even do that locker room thing. That cop wasn't playing that."

Wendy continued: "You're lucky you only got battery. What if he filed for sexual assault? ... Odell, come on, you can't play that clown mess!"

Nola.com reports that a judge declined to approve an initial warrant because it was for misdemeanor sexual battery. The judge later approved an amended warrant for simple battery.

Wendy Williams dropped hints that she went off the market on New Year's. The 55-year-old talk show Diva teased fans with an Instagram image that showed her enjoying a candlelight dinner with someone in Manhattan.

She captioned the image: "Guess who took me for dinner because he likes to watch me eat?!"

Wendy's fans quickly guessed that her dinner date was DJ Boof (since she tagged him in the photo).

Wendy seemed ecstatic in the photo. Her body language says she is smitten with the man sitting across from her.

Body language experts say sucking your fingers generally means you're nervous or regressing to your childhood.

But sucking one finger at a time is a sure sign that her mouth is primed and ready for after dinner sex.

Wendy is coming off a very bad year after divorcing her cheating husband, Kevin Hunter, who fathered a baby girl with his longtime mistress.
