A popular talk show whose host has been dealing with personal issues is going on a hiatus. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that “The Wendy Williams Show” will air repeat episodes next week and will return with new episodes April 8.
The report cites a statement from a spokeswoman for the show saying the week off for spring break was previously scheduled and is unrelated to any issues that have recently surfaced surrounding Williams, 54.
“A source told Page Six that the April break had been planned since the fall, with a separate production source saying the respite is simply coincidental with the goings-on in Williams’ private life,” The Post reports.
The hiatus comes just one month after Williams returned from a two-month break.
“When she ultimately returned on March 4, she explained that she was receiving treatment for her Graves’ disease; however, a couple of weeks later, she revealed she actually was living in a sober facility to treat her addiction issues,” The Post reports. “Since then, Page Six has confirmed that Williams’ husband’s mistress, Sharina Hudson, welcomed a baby on Monday, and that Williams’ husband, Kevin Hunter, is widely speculated to be the father. That afternoon, Williams left her sober house to get drunk and took a car back to her New Jersey home. After being treated with IV fluids, Williams returned to the Queens-based sober house and taped a show the next day.”
