If you’re a fan of The Wendy Williams Show, we’ve got some pretty bad news…

Following some recent health scares, including a very scary fainting moment on live TV, the talk show host is now revealing that she has Graves’ Disease, according to TMZ.

The immune system disorder can cause hand tremors, fatigue, irregular heartbeat, eyes problems, and more. While it sounds like she will be okay, she is taking a doctor-ordered hiatus from her show.

Although it was recommended that she take at least three weeks off, Williams has said that she will only take two. A rep for the show says that during that time, reruns will air in place of new episodes. The rep also described the talk show host as a “true champion” whose health comes first and foremost.

We wish Wendy Williams the best as she recovers her strength.
