WENDY WILLIAMS “WON’T BE RETURNING” TO HER SHOW THIS SEASON: A source told People that Wendy Williams will remain absent from The Wendy Williams Show for the rest of this season. “Wendy won't be returning to the show for the rest of this season. Her healing is going slower than everyone had hoped. She continues to deal with a number of medical issues, including Graves' disease, and she and her team are taking it one day at a time.” The source continued, “But reports of a stroke, drugs or addiction issues or a dementia diagnosis are all false. Whether Wendy can return in the fall will depend on how her healing goes over the summer. Her health is the most important thing.”
