America's favorite gossiper, Wendy Williams announced she will be taking time off to get her body together. 

Last week fans noticed the talk show host was slurring her speech and had to sit down during most of her show. To top it off, she got a hairline fracture in her arm.All week she hosted the show with one arm visible and the other covered because it was in a sling. She took to her Instagram to explain: 

“I did that to power through and try to deliver a great show for you, against the better judgment of the many people around me who genuinely care for my well-being. I really do ride or die for my craft and give 200%” she explained.

She went on to also remind folks about her long standing medical condition. “Not to mention everyone is aware at this point about my thyroid condition (don’t cry for me Argentina). “For all my fellow thyroid sufferers, you know what the deal is,” she continued. “…Needless to say… I have no regrets and I appreciate everyone’s genuine concern for my wellness and care.

I promise you a better Wendy in 2019.”

Along with noting her struggle with Graves’ disease, Wendy said, she will get some much needed rest and healing over these next couple of weeks. Sorry again. I love you all. Happy Holidays!”

The Wendy William’s Show will continue taping live shows in late January.
