The return of Wendy Williams to day time may not be happening anytime soon.

As previously confirmed, the season 13 premiere of ‘The Wendy Williams Show‘ was set to happen back in September but has been pushed back multiple times as Wendy continues to deal with unspecified medical complications.

The last update fans received was that the daytime diva would be back in her purple chair on Monday, October 18, but just moments ago, her team released a fresh statement announcing that while the show will be back on Monday, Wendy will not.

Get into the official statement below.

The Wendy Williams Show will start airing originals on Monday, October 18, with an exciting lineup of guest hosts and panels to be announced shortly.

Wendy continues to be under medical supervision and meets with her medical team on a daily basis. She is making progress but is experiencing serious complications as a direct result of Graves’ Disease and her thyroid condition. It has been determined that more time is needed before she is able to return to her live hosting duties.

Wendy is a valued and stalwart member of the Debmar-Mercury family and has been so for 12 years. We want her health to be her top priority. As soon as she’s ready, she will be back in her treasured purple chair.

We very much appreciate the respect for Wendy’s privacy, as well as all the good wishes from her fans, station partners and advertisers.
