Wendy Williams has pointed out she’s ‘not a perfectionist’ after fans were left concerned following Friday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show.
The talk show host worried viewers last week with long pauses and ‘slurred speech’ during the episode, with many expressing their uneasiness on social media.
Addressing those anxieties on Monday’s show, Wendy said: ‘I come here every day and I try to do the best that I can for you.
‘I appreciate you watching, but even after all of these years, it’s still work and effort put in for the hour that I’m out here with you, you know?
‘I guess every day is not perfect, but I’m not a perfectionist. I’m not perfect.’
Wendy continued: ‘I love entertaining you, you know? And it’s not easy. It’s not easy. You’re a tough crowd.’
She then launched into her Hot Topics segment where she praised Adele’s Saturday Night Live debut.
Last week, many viewers expressed their concerns over Wendy’s health, with one writing: ‘Why are they airing this? She doesn’t seem well at all. Words slurring, spaced out. It’s not fun viewing.’
Echoing a similar sentiment, another added: ‘Something is definitely off this episode. She’s moving really slow and trying to keep it together. She can barely focus.’
Earlier this year, Wendy took an extended hiatus from her talk show in order to deal with her continued battle with Graves’ disease.
The 55-year-old presenter stepped down from her duties so she could make the fatigue she suffers as a result of the illness more manageable.
The Wendy Williams Show team said in a statement at the time: ‘Recently, Wendy has been dealing with symptoms from her Graves’ disease which is causing fatigue.
‘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. More updates on a return date will follow.’
Wendy announced her diagnosis of Graves’ disease back in 2018, shortly after fainting live on air in a moment that quickly went viral.
